I have owned a pair of Sugoi shorts before- ran a few marathons in them and loved them. I had to add a couple of new running shorts to my wardrobe- so I went out to try a few pairs- different brands- not so much. I typed in Sugoi into my web browser and backcountry.com came up- so I ordered two pairs of Sugoi- they arrived super fast- I tried them on and LOVED them. Everything about them is PERFECT! Length is great, panty liner is lightweight, covers and feels invisible, draw string is great for adjustability on the hips and my legs can move freely because of the split side seam. Perfect pair of running shorts! Highly recommend!
