Working out in these shorts is amazing! The material allows for full range of motion and mobility and that is very important in CrossFit training! The inner liner is made very well and I feel very secure. Some inner liners are too thin, but not this one! Also, true to size (I'm a 34 waist). I bought a size larger and I wanted more room in the short for my workouts! The length, for me, is just right as we do a ton of squats and there is absolutely no binding from the start to the end of the squat! Another Asics great short!
The shorts are fine and will definately do the trick. They are not cut in a very flattering style. I have a size 34 Inch waist and ordered a medium. The waist fit perfectly, but there is a lot of material below the waist. I am assuming it is cut for someone of some size below the waist, such as for a larger butt and thighs than I am.
I love these shorts. As advertised these shorts have a small key pocket. They do not have side pockets, but, who can run with a pocket full of stuff. I liked the shorts so much I ordered a second pair.
We are 'old school' runners and the new 'short down to the knee' is not what my husband would wear, so this short was perfect. It was also fairly lightweight which is a plus, less risk of chaffing. The price is about half of that in our local store so I was skeptical but they are perfect and fit as they should.
I like these as much as the Propel shorts. same length, same quality. not too long and not too short. the downside is the length of the string to tie. you have to tie them or cut the string. otherwise very good purchase especially onsale.
