    Comments about RRS Mens Road Runner Sports Velocity 5" Lined Shorts:

    Construction is great. Nice zippered pocket on the back, plus a small "flap pocket" inside the waistband. Perfect for locker key/ID card. Fabric is nice. Graphics/reflective strips great. Problem is these run small. If you've ever bought clothes in Europe, you know what I'm talking about. Things marked "XL" are really an "American L." If you're at the top of the size you wear, i.e. an XL "Fits just right" then you need to buy the next biggest size on these shorts. The liner is TIGHT; that's the majority of the problem. Additionally, the short itself is small. Again, no problem w/the construction/style. They just run small.

        Comments about RRS Mens Road Runner Sports Velocity 5" Lined Shorts:

        I love these. I am built a little funny (large glutes and quads) and these fit very well. I sometimes have trouble with "chafing" on the inner thighs, but these fit just right and prevent such friction, without "clinging" to me. I will be ordering other colors.

                I have four pair of what I believe were the same shorts that I got a year or so ago. They used to have pockets on the side along with the zip pocket in the back. The rear zip pocket is great but I miss the side pockets.

                Purchased a pair 6 months or so ago. Wanted another pair. I really liked the first pair, but this 2nd pair is better. The fabric is lighter and fit is more comfortable than before.

                    Great shorts especially for the price. Fit well run a little smaller than nike, Adidas and TNF. But they work. Time will tell quality. But they are half the price as any major brand for a similar short.

                    These are good shorts at a great price. My only complaint is that the liner is big, allowing the shorts to ride up higher than I would prefer, making them a little less comfortable. But because of their price I'll probably get another pair at some point in the future.

                      I love these shorts! I have always worn shorter running shorts for freedom of movement and for quick drying and was a bit leery of choosing this longer short, but this garment has been a pleasant surprise. They look great for a more modest look (I live in a conservative Asian city) without restricting movement. They are light and comfortable and the inner liner fits perfectly. The little zip pocket is perfectly located and handy. I wear them mostly for running and occasionally for my gym workouts.

                            I put 9 miles on these as soon as I got them, and they are great. It was quite humid on the days I ran, and these did a great job of wicking the sweat away. Love the pockets, and the inner brief. Fits true to size. I'm 6'3, 184 and they were none too small. Great short, will be ordering another pair!

                            I find that these shorts are very comfortable for 1-2 hour runs in 80-100 degree weather. I use them exclusively for my running training, and I plan to wear them for the 2010 Bank of America Chicago Marathon. These 5" shorts may be "too short" for some people, but they are perfect for me. I like that my quads are halfway visible while running. I'm proud of those muscles, and I might as well show them off!

                              At first, I thought these running shorts might be too long and baggy, but I was wrong. They are very comfortable and I hardly notice them while I'm running in the early mornings.

                                            I have been very happy with these shorts, and just ordered some for my son. They are just as good as Underarmour, but not as expensive. They are just the right length--not too short, not too long.

                                              Great shorts. I usually wear Nikes, but decided to try and couple different RRS shorts. I haven't been disappointed yet.

                                              Jury's still out. Packed with features, true. Sizing is baggier and and fabric heavier than most running shorts, more like a volley short. Fabric doesn't stick to your legs in rain, but potential for chafe and rubbing on long runs? Reflective strips are miniscule. I bought the blue and it's kind of an odd shade, maybe it's trendy. I did not find the liner too tight.

                                              does anyone know if RRS changed these? When they came out around 6-9 months ago the liners were much too tight. Have they addressed the problem?

                                              If you have anything closer to a thicker lower body or bigger legs, this is NOT the short for you, as it will ride up on you very very high, making you change your stride or pull it down every 20 steps.

                                              Finally found a short that fits. I find that most shorts are too baggy and puffy. Great light weight fabric and fit couldn't be better.

                                              Great shorts. I usually wear Nikes, but decided to try and couple different RRS shorts. I haven't been disappointed yet.

                                              The 5" is my staple running short. I buy new ones every year but my original pair from several years ago are still holding strong. Can't beat the quality and price.

                                              I normally wear a large and these were the smallest larges I ever had. Too tight to be able to sit down. Usually the liner material chafes me but this time the tight leg bunching up chafed my inner thig and the wasteband chafed my sides. Gobs of vaseline fixed both problems. Loved the material and the pocket, but these were the most disappointing shorts I have ever purchased from RRS.

                                              I recently bought this new style to replace my several year old RR baggy shorts when the elastic waist finally died. Unfortunately, the inner brief liner on this new 5" Velocity short is extremely tight and uncomfortable, and the extra long legs chafe. I have used RR running shorts for over 20 years, as they have changed fabric and gotten baggier and longer, which has been fine until now - this is the first time they have not gotten it right. Bring the old version back.

                                              These shorts are awful because the rise is insufficient for anyone over 5'11''. The leg openings are sufficient. If you're ordering a large or extra large you don't expect a rise that's fit for a pygmy's pelvis. These shorts are a total waste of money except for the tiny, and, judging from one of the reviews here, runners who are short, slim and stout-legged. The fit is inadequate and a real departure from RR's previous models int his category.

                                              I'm not sure what the other reviewers are complaining about. I have a 30-32in waist and thick thighs, which makes it challenging to find shorts that fit and look good, and these are wonderful (size SM). I also like the slightly stiffer material - not as flowy as other running shorts.

                                              The fit is much smaller than last years short, which this short replaces. Not happy!!!
