This has become my favorite pair of running shorts. The only thing even a little wrong is that the sizing is a little large, then again maybe I'm just getting smaller! The pockets are very handy and well placed and the reflective qualities add value to the overall quality of the shorts. Though I haven't had them long, they appear to be well made and durable.
Good shorts, not so good pockets
On long runs, I like to carry some stuff with me (ID, cell phone, cash, keys), so I prefer shorts with pockets. These shorts have small pockets that face rearward from the hip. The velcro closures on the pockets are very secure, to the point of being difficult to open. There's also a zippered rear pocket that I find difficult to reach.
The shorts fit well, and are comfortable, but the pockets don't suit my needs.
My second pair
This was my second purchase of these shorts. I prefer shorts at this length for my daily runs. I live in a very hot and humid climate, and these lightweight shorts do a great job at wicking moisture away. Also, these shorts have two back pockets which velcro shut. The pockets come in very handy for gels. I highly recommend these shorts.
Great shorts for long runs
These are great shorts for long and short runs alike. I have comfortably had 4 gels in the pockets, 2 on each side (stayed put well). They are not too short to feel like racing shorts but yet do not restrict like longer shorts do. For my training runs...these are now my go-to shorts.

Shorts with pockets!!!
Finally some shorts with two pockets to carry gels for marathon running. I put 2 gels in each pocket and there was no bouncing. They are not too short and the fit is true to size. If the the shorts had just 1 more inch of inseam they would be 5-star worthy but I would still recommend them.

Fantastic trail running short!
These shorts are just the right length - not too short and not too long. The two side pockets provide plenty of room for your gels on longer runs.
I have two pairs of these shorts, and they are the best! True to size, comfortable, wicking, lightweight - shorts don't get any better than these.
A perfect longer short for any non-professional runner. Multiple pockets are perfect for storing house keys and, of course, the fit, material, and construction are perfect.

Easily my new favorites
I love these shorts so much that I would pay regular price for another pair when I need them. The 2 well-placed, well-sized pockets are the highlight for me.
Comfortable with style
Great running shorts. They are light and roomy. I would size down if you don't want them too blousy around the thighs.
My Favorite Running Shorts
First thing you'll notice is the quality of these shorts, even the drawstring is durable. Through the couple months of ownership, these have held up wonderfully in runs and washes.
Then there's the fit. I'm 6'1" 165 lbs and the Large fits perfect. The 5" inseam is the ideal length for me. I'm not one to wear short splits, but my running shorts also need to be short enough to give wide range of movement and that they're not bouncing up and down. These fit the bill. But I probably wouldn't wear them casually. Only for running or working out.
More colors please!
My Favorite Shorts
The title says it all, these are my favorite shorts of all time. Own a couple pairs of the Sherpa II and now the Sherpa III. Not too long and not too short. Left and right pockets that will each hold up to two gel packs. Reflective detail in several places for those low light conditions.
Jersey Shore, NJ
Good long short
I usually wear shorter shorts but this is a good longer inseam short. They are stylish and light weight.
my first pair of Brooks
i run 5 days per week between 25 miles to 40 miles.The short is worth the money.
great comfort for trainers
Great trainers. I prefer the shorter shorts, but these are not restrictive at all.
Excellent warm weather running pants
Great for runs- so far up to 12 miles, no chafing, lightweight. Like the pockets for MP3 and gels.
You call these pockets?
I like short to medium length shorts with front pockets or back pockets with enough depth to carry 4 gel packs and my ID . It has been nearly impossible to find them anymore. What is the deal? There are lots
Of longer distance people who need this capacity.
These shorts are good but they don't meet the criteria for me.
Another great product by Brooks
The shorts are the perfect length, not too long or too short.
Not as nice as the Sherpa 2
I was disappointed that the shorts got shorter from the Sherpa 2 to the Sherpa 3. I loved the Sherpa 2's length for other things than just running. I will be looking for another pair of shorts that are a bit longer.
My go-to shorts for group runs.
I usually rock a split short, but these are my go-to shorts if I'm running with a group of athletes. Splits aren't always "Fun Run" friendly!
San Francisco, CA
I would buy another pair!
Palo Alto, CA
Great distance shorts.
These became my favorite running shorts quickly. They are very light making them great for my long runs.
very narrow support
The only but major flaw of these shorts is a very narrow support. It would be OK for women's apparel but not for men's.
Light and airy
Just plain comfortable too work out in. You don't even know you have them on.
