good shorts that will not ride up. It's a bit revealing, so it's not for the conservative runner. Material is good and will not chafe.

Comments about Mens RRS 3" Race Day Splits Short:

I just finished a 6.5 mile run on a humid Jersey morning. These shorts were lightweight, comfortible and absorbed sweat well without "hanging". These are great shorts at a good price. Why pay $5 to $10 more for the swoosh, stripes or puma? Hooray for RRS!

Comments about Mens RRS 3" Race Day Splits Short:

these are GREAT shorts! incredibly short, very comfy. and that's me wearing SM's on my 6' frame. only race i've done in these is a sprint triathlon (yesterday) which i ended up winning; i wore them as my bottoms for the whole race (including the swim) and they were just great. i admit that i didn't want to buy them, i wanted the nike ones, but the nike ones were out of stock so i hit these up. one of my best blind purchases i've ever made!

Comments about Mens RRS 3" Race Day Splits Short:

I've purchased a few different brands of shorts subsequent to purchasing a pair of these. Can honestly say, by a long-shot, these are still the most comfortable and superior shorts of the bunch.
The shorts although lacking any flashy trim, look much better than the web site suggests. They fit really nice (not too short, like some Nikes), and most importantly, a far-superior fabric when it comes to moisture management. These don't wet-out like others (I've got a recent offering from Mizuno that looks and uncomfortably feels, like someone's turned a hose on them during a run).
The zippered pocket in the back middle of these shorts is great! Should be a standard feature on all split shorts (I've never trusted standard non-fastening key pockets to hold a key).
I rarely rate a product (unless something really blows). Fiqure give enough praise to Roadrunner on these gems and they might stick with this line...and maybe offer more colors or style selections down-the-road. Great job

Comments about Mens RRS 3" Race Day Splits Short:

These shorts are great for race day. They have a internal key pocket and a zip-up pocket in the back. The liner is comfortable and soft and has not caused any chafing as of yet. Be warned, these shorts are not for those who are going to the gym or playing basketball--these are SHORT runner's shorts and are good ones at that.

Comments about Mens RRS 3" Race Day Splits Short:

I ordered a pair of these a year ago.
Although the shorts were fine, the rear
pocket had no closure. The new ones I just received has a added zipper on the small rear pocket ( just big enough for 2 or 3 gel packets). These are my favorite shorts!!

Comments about Mens RRS 3" Race Day Splits Short:

Just ordered 2nd pair and exactly what I want to jog at the Y. Same cut as running shorts in track we had in 60-70's. I don't like the 'minimal' cut nor the 'bermuda shorts' cut. I put my flip phone in pokt centered on back, but its not really secure and I don't think big enough for a Blackberry. I like the slit side for freedom yet legs hang down just enough to be a bit modest. I don't understand the other unhappy reviews.

Comments about Mens RRS 3" Race Day Splits Short:

Excellent short if you like the 1/2 split cut. This is a very comfortable running short, wheather on a long or short distance run in hot or cool weather. Finally a quality short that has met my expectations.

Comments about Mens RRS 3" Race Day Splits Short:

Buying my 2nd pair, the fit is good with the short inseam that is so hard to fit these days. The fabric is different and doesn't hold sweat as much as previous RRS fabrics. I have been a RRS shopper for yrs, but have started buying my shoes from elsewhere on the internet (cheaper), but I keep comming back for the RRS shorts.

By Robert

Comments about Mens RRS 3" Race Day Splits Short:

I ran in the shorts and found them comfortable for a ten miler. I can't understand the comment about showing to much and would guess it came from someone younger. I have been racing for 30 years and really enjoyed the full split that you can not find anymore. It seem the younger generation feel good running in baggy heavy shorts. i feel running and racing should be done in a short that allows free movement may be that is why the times are much slower than 25 years ago. Any way if on feels this short shows to much try doing a tri in a pair of speedo's.

Comments about Mens RRS 3" Race Day Splits Short:

Just got these, although it doesn't say so anywere these are 1/2 split shorts. they seem well made and are comfortable. I would not put anything of value in the flap back pocket because there is no zipper of velcro closure. it would be ok for gel. I would buy these again and think they are a good buy.
