Terrible Quality

Top notch pocket design, minimal bounce when running. Slight chafing issue with rough seam. Quality is absolutely disappointing, bought 2 both broke within a month of use (one with broken zipper, another with torn seam). A step back compared to the previous version except for pocket design improvements. Unbelievable.

Lovely shorts

Fit for trail runner with phone and water. Affordable price and handsomely looking. If the phone’s bag can be larger it would be perfect. (Side bag can also carry phone and stuffs)



Thank you for supporting Decathlon Hong Kong and your feedback on your experience with our product!


Welcome to our online store which has more stock and different types of products for you to purchase.


Looking forward to seeing you again in the stores.

Good for long run

Perfect for running

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase

These shorts do not come with a liner, so there is no chafing in the places I experience chafing. The pockets are plenty and large enough to carry a 6.5 inch phone, gels, etc. without difficulty or stuff bouncing around. On long runs moisture management is average and the shorts do not dry very quickly. Once fully wet they simply cling to the body and remain that way till much after the end of the run. They do retain considerable moisture and I am able to squeeze out a fair amount of fluid after particularly long runs. If this were improved the shorts would be excellent in all respects.

Very Bad Quality

The quality seems to be deteriorating by the day.

Hello Vidyashankar,

I apologize for the inconvenience.

I take your feedback as an exception and will surely share the same with our product engineers. It will be of great help if you can let us know in detail your reason that is causing discomfort while using this product. 

For any further queries & suggestions, we’ll be available.



this is basically over-short ith runningbelt built in, to be worn over your undies or compression tights, as theres no liner in it. It has loads of pockets especially on the waistband. The waistband is wide , and the waist pocket is mesh like. The main shorts material however is not breathable, its coarse but heavy duty. I'd say its more like for trail running use, as I have the Quecha short and material is similar. If you want breathable, look elsewhere. If you want sturdy material for aggressive/trail use, consider his. I hope decathlon consider offering brighter colors

Chất lượng tốt, nhẹ, thoáng

Pánské běžecké kraťasy Marathon

I když má tato verze víc kapes, nejsou tak Dobře řešené. Hlavně kapsa na telefon, pokud máte něco s úhlopříčkou větší než 6,5 palce. Mám předchozí verzi a ta se mi celkové líbí víc. Nicméně kdybych neměl možnost porovnat, tak jsou I tyhle kalhoty za tu cenu super

Kapsy úžasné, vejde se i velký mobil.

Leichte Laufhose mit Tasche fürs Handy

Tolle Idee mit den Taschen im breiten Bund. Der Bund ist aber etwas stramm und für mich gewöhnungsbedürftig. Beim Joggen aber nicht mehr spürbar. Ggf. lieber eine Nummer größer zur Auswahl mit bestellen. Die Hose hat keine Einlage, so dass diese mit Unterhose getragen werden sollte.

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase

Eine sehr bequeme Laufhose. Heute die ersten 10km mit der Hose abgespult. Sie war angenehm vom Tragegefühl, kein scheuern oder zwicken. Durch die Tasche vorne am Bunt hat das Handy einen guten Platz und man merkt es auch nicht beim Laufen. Werde mir noch eine zweite Hose besorgen. 💪💪

Additional Product Information


Main fabric: 86.0% Polyamide, 14.0% Spandex ; Waist fabric: 65.0% Polyamide, 35.0% Spandex ; Pocket: 76.0% Polyethylene Terephtalate, 24.0% Spandex

Detail of different pockets

These shorts come with 7 pockets.- a large zipped pocket at the chest for a phone (up to iPhone 13). - 2 back pockets to house 2 x 8 oz bottles.- 4 side pockets for 3 to 4 gels each or for other belongings (keys, AirPod box, etc.)The pockets are distributed around the waist so that you do not feel the weight and the items you're carrying don't move about as much.


In order to reduce chafing at crotch level, fairly common over long distances, our design teams increased the length of the shorts. When you run, they ride up less and protect you from friction.In order to ensure perfect freedom of movement and excellent ventilation, these shorts have 2 side openings.The shorts do not have built-in briefs, so you can choose the most suitable underwear for your sport.

New features

In order to fulfill your needs as well as possible, we have improved these shorts: - a new, more slimline waistband that helps to wick away perspiration;- 2 additional side pockets;- 1 front pocket closed with a zipper for securing your smartphone;- a new component that is more breathable and has greater elasticity to provide more freedom of movement.

Practical tips

You can now train or race over long distances with everything you need to keep hydrated and eat.And in order to remain safe, you will be able to take your smartphone with you.


These shorts can be adjusted to fit with a drawstring.For carrying weight at waist level comfortably, we recommended positioning the shorts high on the waist and carefully adjusting the drawstring.

Eco-designed product

By recycling polyamide pellets or yarn scraps, we reduce the use of resources from oil while retaining the breathable qualities of the material while you exercise.

Product testing

This product has been tested in the lab and in the field by athletes of all levels. It was passed by all our testers for its capacity to deliver comfort while running in hot/warm weather.
