These are really awesome shorts... a good length, not too short, not too long. I love the pocket options on these shorts. I like to carry my reading glasses when I run which is usually a problem. The side pocket easily and safely holds the glasses without any irritation or aggravation. The only complaint is the that the zipper pocket will not hold a smart phone so I still need to carry a waist pack or armband for my phone. Hopefully the next update will accommodate a smart phone. More color options would be a nice idea also...
So far, so awesome
I have had these for a month and they are great! Comfortable, soft, love that they have a liner. These shorts have become my go to choice. I especially love the pocket for the phone and the hidden pocket for the locker key. I have been having trouble getting an arm sleeve for my iphone when I lift weights. These have alleviated the problem with pockets located on the side. I like the solution.

Please disregard my earlier review as it was done based upon bad expectations.
I ordered these because the sale's associate who helped me told me they were like an earlier order I placed. I've worn out the earlier shorts. My specific need is that my shorts have a pocket that will accommodate a smart phone. These shorts do not fulfill that need. You'd be lucky to get an old fashioned flip phone in the slash opening that RR calls a pocket.
I consider this a terrible design.

Great shorts with pockets
I've been a runner for a few yrs now and have now moved up to 1/2 and full marathons. These shorts are light, dry quickly and have a ton of pockets. The side pockets can fit a iphone or better yet a 8 oz bottle so you don't need to wear a belt to carry your hydration with you. My only wish is that they had a 4 or 5 inch inseam version.
Comfortable pair of shorts with inner lining. Perfect for running. They have a few small mesh pockets with elastic closures and one small zippered pocket on the back waistband. I don't carry much on my runs, but I do require a pocket for my house key and a pocket to hold a small towel. These fit the bill.
Size varies by color
I bought two pairs of these. One in black and one in gray. The shorts themselves feel different and the liners are drastically different even though they are both mediums. The black one is comfortable and the gray one is too restrictive. I cut the liner out of the gray one to be able to use them.
The beauty of these shorts is that they can accommodate an iPhone in the front pockets - either side. The newer shorts, with the compression liners, will hold the phone... until you sit down, at which time the phone will drop out. Not a problem with these shorts.

Like the zipper.
Good for training runs as has lots of pockets but would like them to be a bit bigger. Also, needs light
reflector at the back to be visible at night. All in all, great product.
Old man Joe
Great shorts. The fit is perfect for someone like myself who is short and stocky. I have been looking for a fit like these for a long time. Well worth the money.
The Sergeant Major
This short has so much storage I almost don't have enough stuff to fill them. I've never had a problem with things falling out while I'm running since the pockets have elastic. I would recommend putting your ID or keys in the zipper pocket if you're paranoid like me of losing them.

Nice shorts, but run a tad bit small
I bought these shorts because I needed a pair that could hold several GU packets. These fit the bill, though I will say they run a tad bit small in the waist.
My new favorite running shorts
I use these on my long runs - 10 miles plus. They are comfortable and I have plenty of pockets to store gels, etc.
Great shorts! Very lightweight and comfortable. The pockets are handy, especially for a gel or two.
Not so good
These sounded great on line. However, the five pockets are too small to be of any value.
Needs only one more pocket - for an iPhone 6
If only it had a pocket for the iPhone 6, then it would be complete.
shorts are great, fit true to size.
shorts are great --- delivery great as always
