Great running shorts

Ran a 144-mile Ultra in those and love them. The waistband pockets are great to keep small items. They are light and breath easy. Ran on them in the summer heat and never felt hot in them.

Good shorts

Good shorts but you have to go a size bigger than what you would normally wear.

Are you being served?

These are very much my Mr Humphries shorts, they very much ride up with wear. I ended up getting a sore patch on the inside of my leg where the fabric had rubbed. Good pockets though. Maybe longer boxers required.

Hi Tom, thank you for your review and I'm sorry to hear about your sore patch. I would try the shorts again with some boxers as you suggest, but if they keep rubbing please bring them back to the store and we'll find you an alternative.


Running Shorts

The medium is a little tight, probably wouldn't use for a long run which I intended thier use. I suggest purchasing the next size up as they're are a decent pair of shorts.

Fab shorts but sizing not accurate for UK

A size medium is really a small. Had to return the medium and order a large for my partner. Otherwise these would have got 5*. Great shorts, he really loved them but was disappointed when he couldn't fit into them. My partner loved all the pockets and the length was good

Running shorts

Not really any good to carry phone though, not supportive enough

Very good

Would be 5 stars if they had inner briefs. Great pockets, very comfortable. Recommended.

Great shorts at a great price

I was very surprised at how good these shorts are. The fit, suggested by the guide, was perfect for me and they are very comfortable to wear, they are lightweight and would be ideal in the summer, although I have been wearing them over leggings for winter runs. I was concerned the front pocket would not hold my phone without it bouncing around, but it was secure and I did not notice it once during my run, same for my car keys stored in the side pocket (although it would be nice to have one zipped pocket for keys but this is a minor gripe).

Marathon shorts

Comfy and plenty of pockets that are secure

Excellent shorts. Could you make it in other colours as well please. I'd like to buy another one


A fantastic short, although sold for warmer weather, I used them in a marathon in December & was surprised at the comfort & relaxed fabric

My second favourite shorts

After the Decathlon Trail running baggy shorts, these are my second favourite shorts. I bought them for my first (and potentially, only) marathon in May (Edinburgh in case you're interested - horrible experience!). Very lightweight, with no inner lining (I bought the seamless running boxers from Decathlon) and best of all, LOADS of pockets. I especially like the long thigh pockets which take an iPhone and are easy to access. I took my phone, keys, and gels for the marathon with no problem. My only issue with them (hence the four stars) is they are very long in the leg. I ended up cutting the bottoms off - they haven't frayed, so I'm happy (and my wife no longer thinks I look ludicrous in then).

Additional Product Information


Main fabric

  • 100% Polyester cationic

Upper part - Main fabric

  • 31% Spandex
  • 69% Polyamide


  • 19% Spandex
  • 81% Polyamide

Details of the various pockets

These shorts come with 5 pockets. - a wide chest pocket for your smartphone (up to iPhone X) or a 250 ml water bottle. - 2 back pockets to house 2 250 mL bottles. - 2 side pockets, each of which can hold 3 gels. The distribution of the pockets around the waist means you won't feel the weight and reduces the jiggling of the items carried.


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.

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.

Fastening cord

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.
