Don't forget to refuel every few miles.

Lose the old undies-under-shorts setup you used to sport and go with the Mountain Hardware Men's Refueler Short for all of your trail and road ventures. As you pound pavement or dirt, the quick-drying material pulls moisture away from your skin to evaporate while a DWR coating on the exterior fends off splashes and sprinkles.

strange sizes?

I ordered a gray and black pair both mediums 7s. The gray pair fit perfect but the black pair was noticeably smaller and had to be returned. They appear to quality shorts otherwise

Mountain Hardwear Refueler Shorts review

  • Fit: Runs large

Comfy & light!
Not a big fan of the mesh lining but it's not bad after all. You forget it's there from time to time.
Keeps the dangle to a minimum.

Do these shorts have a compression short...

Do these shorts have a compression short liner or is it a brief liner?

Responded on

Hey null,

Thanks for your question.

These shorts have a brief liner, not a compression liner. I hope this helps.

I love these shorts - on my 2nd pair.

I run in these shorts every day, and they've been great through hundreds of miles of trails, races, and trail races!

If you're looking for a lightweight, unobtrusive running short, but you're too modest to join the 1-inch inseam team, get these shorts. The seven inch version falls nicely above the knee.

Refueler Running Short: Comfy

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have several pair of these shorts. I can wear these all day and never feel like they are about to reshape my anatomy. Breathable material which has a huge temperature range to provide optimum comfort during changing conditions. Don't weigh a ton when wet and dry quickly without chilling you. Can't go wrong with the Refueler. See our detailed review at

They're Shorts!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

It doesn't get much simpler than that! It is hard to mess upa pair of running short. Mountain Hardwear makes these ones great for the recreational runner as well as the hardcore ultra runner. I have only had these for a couple weeks and they have been great. Lightweight, good mobility and with a zip stash on the back. Bought medium for 31 waist and they fit great.

Very light, in a good way

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I think they fit great. I wear a 32 in almost everything and ordered a medium. I can't believe how light they are! No pockets doesn't bother me. I don't really notice that I'm wearing them. Excellent pair of work out/running shorts.

Love these shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

These shorts are great for running or working out. They keep the sweat wicked away well. They seem to run a little large. Bummer there are no pockets.

Great Shorts!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have 2 pairs of these and they are my favorite running shorts. They are very comfortable and wick away moisture very well. As mentioned by others the only drawback to these is the lack of any sort of pocket. Other than that they are perfect.

Buy this shorts!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this shorts, love the inseam, love the length, love the color, love the fabric BUT there's a couple of things that I don't love:
- No pockets, nada, zero, zip, just a tiny coin pocket on the front, too small to be used.
- I got an XXL and it runs a little bit on the big side and the waist strap doesn't really seem to adjust it.

I would buy this again any day of the week and as another reviewer said they are not just for running, they are great overall shorts.

Not just running

These are super comfy and great all-around outdoors shorts. Have worn these swimming, running, canoeing, sailing, and general cavorting. I bought the small, which is probably too small for me (~31" waist usually, 6' tall) but w/e they're too comfy to return.

My favorite running shorts

Not too long, not to short, just perfect length above the knee. They don't have the slit between the front and rear of the shorts like some old-school shorts have but still have plenty of range of motion. All around killer shorts for running.

Responded on

Hardwear changed the cut a little from their original release of the Refueler. They have a little more leg room than in the past which depends on your personal preference. I liked the slimmer leg of the old short just so there wasn't as much material in play. Still a great short though.

These are the most comfortable running shorts I have ever used. Very cool and breathable.
