I use these shorts to go on my 5-6 mile runs and I couldn't ask for more out of them. For the price these shorts are an excellent value, they are inexpensive while maintaining a high level of quality. These shorts are very breathable and the perfect length for my tastes. I really can't think of any cons to these shorts, they do their job and they do it well. The wicking ability is excellent and the comfort level will not disappoint you. I only wish there were more colors to choose from.

Look Nice and Comfortable on most runs
Nice looking shorts, very comfortable. Not as light as I anticipated, and the pocket is small. Maybe no short is comfortable over 16 plus miles in the kind of heat and humidity we've had, but I think these were more clingy than my old cheap starter shorts. These are great outside of heat and humidity, or for hour runs or less. Just fine.
These are my favorite pair of running shorts. They allow you to move freely and have excellent wicking capabilities. They also look cool to boast. [...]
Love these shorts
This is a great pair of shorts. They fit great. The inseam is 5" which I find is excellent for doing cross training, kick boxing as well as running.

Light and airy
I use for all length runs. They let a decent amount of air in and allow for loads of movement! The leg openings are large and comfortable.
