The SmartWool Men's PhD Long Run Short offers lightweight, moisture-wicking performance when you're training for your next marathon and jogging along your favorite trail. This high-performance short is cut a bit longer than your average running short, falling over the mid-thigh for a bit of extra coverage. Its merino-blend inner brief helps to move sweat off your skin where it can readily evaporate for enhanced temperature regulation. Additionally, you'll find this inner short is super comfortable with its seamless construction and knit-in ventilation zones.

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
Especially for the price, was not impressed. Experienced bad chafing from the liner, and the back pocket was difficult to access mid-run to get out a gel. I had heard these were the cream of the crop and love merino, but was very disappointed. Returning.
