I have three pairs of these shorts and they are my standard wear at the gym or running. They're comfortable for all day wear as well. First: Pockets! I've heard some runners hate pockets, but I've never met one. These shorts give your three - two zippered side pockets to carry almost anything, and one hidden pocket in the back of the waistband. The side pockets are good sized and allow you to carry your wallet, keys, phone, etc. easily. The zippers lay flat and close easily. The hidden pocket in the back is the perfect size for your ID, and a key - perfect for those days when you're heading out the door for a quick run (it will probably hold more, like a nano but I've never tried).
Great shorts for the gym, the compression liner is comfortable doing anything - even on the stationary bike. Great shorts for a run. Great shorts for almost any activity (I say 'almost' because I haven't swam with them yet).
Good so far
I've been looking for some time to replace my three year old Nike Dri-Fit shorts without spending a fortune. Although I cannot comment about long-term durability, I do like these shorts. I've run for about three hours total in cold weather and they've been fine. No grabbing / bunching / chafing and plenty of support in the "important" areas. Although they're a little heavier than the Nike shorts they replaced, I don't care. They have two large zipper pockets that I will use to carry my keys, energy gels, ID and spare phone battery when I run the marathon. In the past I've had to carry a fanny pack for these items so it's nice to not have to anymore. Good value for money overall and I recommend them.

These shorts look great and the three pockets are very functional. I even carried my iPhone in one of the side pockets on my inaugural run in them and wasn't annoyed by the flopping and bouncing of the phone against my leg.
The inner compression short, however, leaves a bit to be desired. The flatlock seams on the inner short chafed big time on my upper/inner thigh. I didn't notice this on my run, but after it was pretty painful.
Overrated and Not as Advertised
The shorts look great and the three pockets are functional. I even carried my iPhone in one of the side pockets and it was secure enough to not bounce around annoyingly.
The downside of the shorts - and its huge - is that the interior compression liner chafes big time. An allegedly chafe-free flat lock seam is poorly placed around the upper thigh/crotch and left terrible chafing an inch down on my thigh after a 5 mile run.
Otherwise, these shorts are great.
compression short is comfortable
I use the trunks for softball and running. They are comfortable enough to use daily. It says there is an inner lining, but the inner lining is actually the compression short, so there is no restriction and for softball purposes, there is room for a cup. The trunks are quick drying which is good because the Florida heat and humidity are drenching.

Please bring back my favorite pair of shorts!
I love the shorts, especially the zippered pockets. Haven't had any issues with chafing as the other reviews indicated. The inner liner is quite good, not flimsy like a lot of other 2-in-1 shorts. They are great for long runs and are quite breathable in hot weather.
Terrific Running Shorts
Replaced my 3 year old Runner's World shorts with this new model and very pleased with them. Fit well, stylish and very comfortable. May have to order some more right away :)
Exactly what I was looking for
I was looking for a pair of shorts with a compression liner and zip up pockets that won't collect mud during obstacle races. These shorts had everything I needed at a great price!

Love the Zippers
Like the zippers as I use after working out to go shopping and won't loose my wallet.
The liners are full and would have preferred the brief style.
They will take a while to get use to.
Zippered Pockets a big plus
Only decent running shorts I was able to find with zippered pockets which are also pretty deep.
