nice shorts

5

Great light shorts that aren't actually too short for the gym and treadmill. Like the rear pocket, like the cut - no constraint in my stride. I think you'll like them.

Great Fit, Form and Function

these shorts are just what i've been looking for, I run 30-40 miles a week most of the year, so proper fitting shorts are critical and i also love that these shorts are offered in steel grey, most shorts are always in black, which i hate because they're too hot to wear in the summer...the length is perfect, not so short that they ride up on you and not so long that they restrict movement and chafe, also unlike most other brands, the waist is not abnormally tight, i'm 5'11" and 180 lbs and the xl's fit perfectly, no restrictive waist or flaring in the legs...after running in them a couple times i went back and purchased an additional pair...the material is a little thinner, more optimal for warmer weather, but i've worn them in low 40's with no issues...i highly recommend these shorts!!!

Great fit

Great fit and short enough not to bunch up in the crotch but long enough so you don't feel like you're running in your underwear.

Almost Perfect

Liner: The front is flat and uncomfortable. These are men's shorts but the liner is not built or contoured to hold men's parts. I don't get it. I will have to cut the liner out like most other running shorts. Aside from the liner, these are pretty nice. Easy movement, they don't bind or roll on my legs. The inseam could be a little different, seemed like I could chafe easily. The sizing is perfect (small) and although these are 3" inseam, the overall size is very close to my 4" Nikes. Grey = visible sweat. The grey shows moisture too much. I usually don't care about stuff like that but it was a little embarrassing to see how much I sweat in the back.

Good running shorts, but....

I bought four pairs of these on sale. Two of them were orange, and the orange color bled a lot when I was hand washing them (in cold water no less!). The blue ones did not bleed. Other than that caution, the shorts work well. They fit, have a sturdy waistband, and a nice zipper pocket in back. They also run cool and handle moisture well. I prefer shorter, split shorts and these fit the bill. They are light but substantial. Just be careful to wash the orange ones separately the first few times you use them.

Outstanding shorts!

I picked a pair of these shorts up in the new Atlanta RRS store in metro Atlanta earlier this week. I wore them in hilly trail race this morning. The combination of great sizing and lightweight material give these shorts a very comfortable ride. The unrestricted leg movement is one less thing to think about when attacking hills. The temperatures were in the high forties; no issues. The back zippered pocket is perfect for a large car key - much more comfortable than using front purpose made key pockets.

Overall I'm Happy

4

I'm an older age group competitive runner and need comfortable shorts with lots of storage. I bought a pair of these last year and loved them. This year I bought two more pair and am still happy they seemed to have changed a bit. Last year's model had two key pockets inside plus a zipper pocket in the back. This year's model seems to only have one key pocket and it's in an awkward spot. Otherwise great shorts.

RRS Apparel beats the big names

4

I've purchased several pair of RRS running shorts in the past and still prefer them to other big name apparel brands. Plenty of room in the rear zipper pocket to carry car keys, house key or a hotel card key when out for a run. I always prefer the 3" inseam which seems less available from other makers but RRS still provides in plenty of colors. No problems with rubbing, chafing on long runs in hot humid weather.

Great Run SHort

5

Marathon runner, 40+ miles/week St. Louis hot + humid summer. Normal summer run humidity is 67% to 80% I was pleasantly surprised to find the shorts stayed dry throughout the 14 mile run, no discomfort , clinging or chafing. They look & feel great. I have not carried anything in the pocket, but the rear zip pocket looks to be well constructed & stitched. My go to summer long run short. Buying 2 more pair.

Great fit and price

Previously Nike was the only short I was comfortable in for running and gym wear. Now I may have a new favorite. Great fit. I cannot stand the baggy shorts, I have no idea how people run and workout in them? These have a nice fit without being too short. Love the pockets; 2 inside and one back. Draw string waist is nice although the elastic band seems very stable as well.

Love these shorts!

I've bought a lot of cheaper running shorts over the years. I bought a pair of these to try them out. They are the most comfortable and best-looking running shorts I own. I quickly ordered another pair. The seams are flat, the lining comfortable, and I like the back zippered pocket for my iPod and hotel room key when I'm traveling.

Good shorts, Bad small pocket

2

I bought the shorts solely for the "zipper back pocket for key and media devices." The pocket can hold a key and MAYBE your credit card, but will not fit a smart phone. I don't know why the pockets wasn't even 1 inch deeper to accommodate a phone, but I would have suggested at least 3 more inches. Bad QA.

3" RRS Split Shorts

Very comfortable, light pair of minimalist running shorts. I do not understand, tho, moving the internal pocket to the rignt of the front seam. Not a comfortable location for keys-maybe thats the reason for the rear zipper pocket on the back seam. Other than logic of the pockets, a great pr of shorts.

Not for me

I've been on two runs in these shorts, 10 and 13 miles. The whole time I was running I wished I had not worn them. They do not dry quickly and instead hold sweat becoming heavy for the entire run. These are the only shorts that have chafed me. They may be fine for short runs.

For the utmost in unrestrictive movement

I usually run with 5" shorts, however these are awesome! Great for really hot days, or where lots of sprinting is involved. I don't recommend carrying anything with these shorts, as they are catre to the minimalistic runner. But they sure do feel good, and don't chafe :)

Great shorts

I love these shorts! They run a bit small, though... the only complaint I have with them. Maybe this is the norm for R-Gear stuff, but I'm not sure. I've had to get a size "big" for both the R-Gear shorts I bought, but I love them both anyway.

Didn't meet expectations

First time running in shorts. Lightweight and airy but inseam material kept riding up into my crotch. Spent entire run constantly pulling material down. Combination of inner mesh support and lack of material in inseam did not provide protection from chafing. Will return them.

I run four days a week and these shorts are perfect for me almost all year. Unfortunately, there is the occasional southern California winter day when I need something warmer but you can't have everything!

We row every morning in a double scull for 30-35 minutes. These shorts although designed and intended for runners are also just right for rowers: light, comfortable, allow movement and don't look too bad.

...I bought these for my husband as his last ones were (still are!!) over 10 yrs. old...he loves these shorts & still wears his old ones, but I felt it was time for a new pair... :)

3" splits

I like them enough for the warm weather that I have 5 prs now. Their lightness is their forte; if you are going to do something more rough and tumble, then you would choose something sturdier.

I use the shorts for running usually 5-11 miles, and have been running for 36 years and these are the best fitting, best wearing, and best looking running shorts I have ever owned.

This is my second pair-hard to find 1/2 split shorts anymore. Very comfortable and extremely durable. I wish that someone would make a 1/2 split short that's a little longer.
