Quick-drying, stretchy comfort for high-powered runs.

Pull on the North Face Women's GTD Running Short, and hit the trail for a high-powered workout. The short's four-inch inseam length offers a bit of extra coverage when part of your run includes pushing through dense, overgrown brush, and its stretch mesh panels both ventilate and allow for increased range of motion when you're hopping over streams or powering up steep boulder gardens. The FlashDry polyester lining is designed to rapidly wick perspiration away and dry quickly to keep you cool in the heat and comfortable if the temperature drops. Once you're done with your run, pull your house or car key out of the zippered back pocket, and enjoy the pleasant runner's buzz that will keep you going through the rest of the day.

Here's what others have to say...

Not the best, but decent...

Not the best, but decent...

Here, you can see the slit isn't that large which is a feature she loves. It allows freedom of movement and is comfortable when the shorts "breath."


Great, but not my favorite...

**Fiance's Words**

In need of a new pair of running shorts, and based off of previous experiences with The North Face running shorts, I decided to try the GTD Running Short. When first trying on the shorts, I was in love with the color (Garnet Purple), the back zipper pocket (just enough to fit a car key), and the inside liner. The length of the shorts is decent, however, I do wish the split on the side was a little longer.

I did run into some situations with the shorts that have caused me to use this shorts as an alternative to my go-to shorts. The GTD shorts have a less than desirable waist band in my opinion. The wide waist band is not stitched properly, thus resulting in the draw cord to come undone and needing to be re-threaded. Also, with the waist band not being stitched fully, when having to pull the shorts down during a mid-run nature call, it becomes twisted.

In regards to sizing, I felt that the shorts ran a little on the small side. I am typically a 2 or 4, but feel that these shorts are just a little snug on the butt. This may just be a personal preference for me though, and it didn't result in me sizing up.

I really wanted to like these shorts, and if the waist band was constructed differently, I think these would be amazing...but when running long distances, the last thing I want to fuss with is untwisting and readjusting the waist band.


<3 Running in these

Love these shorts! Super comfortable, the fabric is ultra light and wicks away any moisture. Added plus is the zipper pocket at the lower back-not in the way!


Runs a little large

I bought these for my sister and her thoughts were..."An excellent pair of shorts. I normally order a size medium in tops and shorts as I am 5'5" and 140lbs, but I had tried these on in a store and the small is a much better fit. Breatheable, easy to move in, and much preferred over the similar Nike short."
