Just the right length.
on May 8, 2012
These shorts are not too short and not too long. Just the right length for casual runners that want freedom of movement, but are intimated by regular split shorts. The half split on the side allow for additional movement without revealing too much skin.
As others have noted, the material is on the thick side. This can be good or bad depending on your preferences. I actually like it. The thickness/weight helps keep the hem of the shorts down and prevents them from flapping around when you run. But if you're a long distance runner, this could cause some issues with chaffing.
Also the material is mesh-like and stretches. Another big bonus for me. Most other running shorts these days are made of a dense non stretch nylon material. So these shorts would also be comfortable in the gym during squat days.
Only gripe is that I bought the wrong size. I forgot Asics shorts run bigger. If you prefer baggy shorts, then get whatever the size chart recommends. If you prefer fitted shorts, then get one size smaller.
