I wore various colors of these shorts on four half marathons run in 2012 (September-December). I like these shorts the most of all of my running shorts. They are super comfortable, have two side pockets for those times when you need to carry keys and "stuff", have a drawstring to ensure a proper fit, dry very fast, are modest (loose) enough to wear in public on hot days by allowing air to circulate and remain cool, have a liner so you don't worry about revealing too much when seated and have a nice variety of colors. I do wear compression shorts underneath when engaged in longer runs.

Solid product. These last forever
I've bought older versions of these shorts for years. They last through many washes. Not too short, not too long. Love the side pockets. Look no further if you're looking for a no-nonsense short for lots of running!
Good shorts with weird fit.
Look good and overall comfortable. The only problem is the fit. I would say the inseam is closer to 9" or even 11. Also it is a bit narrow around the thighs for my taste. Overall not the best but definitely not terrible.
Great fit and feel! Short were the perfect length right past my knees. I'm super picky with shorts and these were great!
Comfy & lightweight
Great shorts just wish they came in more colors
