To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Great quality, strong zips, just want I've been after so I can access my phone easier than I can from an SPIBelt, while not having to worry about it flying out of a pocket as I do with most other jogging shorts. I've just ordered a second set of 2 so I can keep a set in the car for jogging when out and about, and another to use for swimming.
I have been looking for shorts that are ideal fir riding the bike to the gym, and specifically wanted deep side zip up pockets. I have bought a couple of different pairs off Amazon, and I am extremely happy with all of them. The fit has been good, the waist elastic firm, the pockets a good size, they are well made, and the material suits the application. For this application I highly recommend them.
I wore these for my most recent full marathon, and they're just about perfect. They're not too big or too small, the zipper pockets are wonderful. I'm really particular about my running shorts - and especially the pockets! These aren't the kind of pockets that sway too much with a cell phone inside. While I didn't carry my phone with me during my last marathon, I was able to pack the pockets full of fuel needed for the entire distance. The zippers make sure I don't lose anything.
I've had these shorts through several loads of laundry, and they're holding up well. In my running clothes drawer, if I have a choice of all my shorts, I'll choose these. Definitely buying more.
Edit: My original review is now eight months old. The original black pair I purchased is holding up very well. Since then I purchased a red pair later last year and now I just bought two navy blue shorts. All of them are consistent in sizing and quality. They're my favorite shorts!
I wear XL shorts and most of the time they fit fine for Russell, Nike, Under Armor, etc. this was not the case for these shorts! I was excited to get them but they were SMALL! I’m not sure a XXXL would fit!
