Loved these so much I bought another pair of DeSotos! Went for the Solana because I wanted another pair just a little longer, as the Tuesdays are a bit short. Firstly, the style is sweet: I bought the skull pattern, then chose the Maltese Cross with the Solanas. The cut is cool and comfortable, and the liner is amazingly soft and keeps you cool on long hot humid runs. They are made of "Skin Cooler " material that lives up to its name and I experienced NO CHAFING on long (15+) mile runs. This is the main reason I went back and ordered another pair, as well as the Forza SDS? Tri Top, b/c it is made of the same material. Another thing I love about these shorts is that they can double as swim trunks! Several times I've finished a run and jumped into the pool and they don't billow, ride up, or drag when I'm swimming. The NanoSurf? shell is not soft but not abrasive either, and doesn't seem to absorb water much so stays light and dry. From all the research I've done and reviews read, it appears these shorts last forever; many reviewers stating they've been using them for over a decade. I'm sold on this short, as well as the company.
