I definitely recommend ordering a size up but I absolutely love these shorts. I now own 3 pairs, gray, black, and blue. They are light comfortable and they seem to be cooler than other shorts I own. I love the zipper pockets.
My gym has rust on absolutely everything so anytime I wear the gray shorts they have stuff all over them but it always washes out. I love the length as well.
If this company needs a brand ambassador I would love to become that guy because I recommend these to anyone that asks about them
I'm no longer the athletic type due to age and health so your mileage may vary if you buy these shorts for running or other similar activity. I wanted to try the zippered pockets because of having a huge and expensive phone that tries to sneak out when I'm not looking or I'm in a position that may encourage the phone to bolt to freedom. The zipper, of course, counters this and makes the phone behave. However, the zippers tend to be bit of a hassle because of their nature of not being soft like the fabric and you have to unzip to access the phone. If your gym short pockets are consistently deep (even within the same brand mine are not) you may want to pass on these but if you want the added security, they're worth it.
I wear size 34", in everything I own yet the Large for these is way too tight. I tried ordering XL and although the wasteband is good they're too baggy.
They're well made and look decent but the sizing is way, way off. I own many pairs of jeans, shorts and basketball shorts and size 34" in all of them fits me well. It won't happen, but this should be fixed. I'm sending all pairs back.
I ordered xl because I like my workout shorts to be a little loose. The xl I got were somewhere between a medium and large in my Hanes workout shorts. They seem like good quality, but definitely buy the next size up, at least.
These are nice, typical gym shorts. I purchased for my husband solely based on the zipper pockets. In the picture they appear to be right at the knee, know this is not the case. They are about 2/3 inches ABOVE THE KNEE so keep that in mind. My husband was disappointed in the length but they are as advertised.
There is no question that these shorts are quality and well made. The only downside is that they are a tad snug. I say that because all my other gym style shorts are XL and fit fine. These shorts are XL and while they fit, they are a shade too tight in the waist/crotch area. I am wearing them but I wish I ordered the next size up for a little more comfort/freedom in the important areas.
The inseam is a bit more snug than my other athletic shorts but not so snug that it creates a problem. I knew in advance that the shorts have zippers in the pockets. That wouldn't be my preference but it might be for most buyers. The manufacturer might consider offering either zippered or unzippered styles.
The shorts seem to be good quality and are made of comfortable fabrics HOWEVER the sizes are way off. I normally wear athletic large shorts to allow for plenty of give on the waistband and then tie up the drawstrings as needed. I read the reviews about the sizes be small and bumped up to an XL and it is still too tight. If that's how you wear your shorts, get TWO sizes larger than your normal waist.
