Not comfortable
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I had a pair similar to this last year, which were fantastic but the zip broke. The material of these shorts is great and they nice to run in. However after a very short distance the material around the crotch (not inner liner) rides up and causes chaffing. I am not the only reviewer who has had this issue. Otherwise would have been fantastic shorts

One of the Best running short for distance running
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Very light with enough room for your strider. Also back pocket with chain can carry keys and feature phone. ( No smart phone) and I don't like carrying a heay smart phone for long runs. This is just perfect to run light and carry keys and phone just in case.

Faulty design

This product had faulty design .. loose and baggy . As a result , it is getting stucked in between the leg during running. With trial you can't figure it out until running. Used only once . And useless to me now.
