Nice shorts, impressive features

These shorts feel nice to wear and fit well. I was impressed by the thoughtful features that are missing from many other shorts. Firstly, there is a small internal pocket for keys. Secondly, the rear pocket is big enough for my phone. It takes a bit of getting used to as the shorts feel weighed down at the back. But a bit of adjustment of the drawstring makes them very secure and before too long you don't notice the phone bouncing behind you.

Lovely comfy shorts, soft material and a nice fit. I wish they did 7" version as well (maybe they do!), I would buy them too.

So comfortable but phone pocket is a bit bouncy

Theses are some of the comfiest shorts I’ve got and I’ve got loads. However if you want a phone pocket that doesn’t bounce as you run these won’t be right.

Men’s 5 inch AFO shorts

Really light weight and comfortable, I chose the bright blue which look great. I would definitely purchase these again.
