Cool shorts, well made. The vent flaps are good idea.
The problem I have with them is the inner brief.
It is tight, be aware.
The outer short is perfect in size and length for a "large", but the inner brief is more like a "medium".

It may be alright for guys who like their package held tight, but "free spirits" should shy away from these.

The capacity for this device is just right for longer runs 5 to 10 miles.

I'm a little large (6 ft, about 220 lbs.)and need the hydration.

I used it on a Bartram Trail race (8 miles at 3500 ft. elevation) in NC just two weeks ago.

I fumbled with side/cinch straps a little, but eventually figured out how to best use them.

It's a good size, but takes getting used to running with a lumbar pack with that much water volume.

I think this one is best for fitness walkers and day hikers.

It can work for trail runners, but you need to be a decent size (min. 5 ft. 10 in.)and have the strength to carry that much weight (roughly 4 pounds filled) at your center of gravity.

If your smaller than the min., I recommend a smaller volume lumber pack or go with a over the shoulders type hydration pack.
