    These shorts are probably the most comfortable pair of trail running shorts I own. I barely notice I'm wearing them and they're super flattering.

    The most comfortable shorts ever

    I have a large booty and smaller waist, so finding shorts that fit me well is always a challenge. These shorts are amazing and fit me better than any other athletic shorts I own. I do not like tight workout clothes, so I opted for a size large. I love the soft, lightweight material and that there is a drawstring to adjust the waist. As other reviewers have said, it feels like you aren't wearing shorts at all because they are so comfortable and light! I really couldn't be happier!

    I'm really happy with these shorts! Very light, comfortable material, you hardly notice wearing them. They do not restrict y, and the liner fits perfectly.

    I've been looking for some running shorts that would be good for my body type: 5'5, 117lbs, short waisted, long legs and straight figured from waist down. I wanted the brief/liner with the wide waist band and drawstring...and most importantly had major wicking power. These meet all of those desires. Super lightweight, fit my butt/hips to perfectly. The waist is a tad big, but the drawstring takes care of that. :) Like many of you, I went through sticker price shock. But, I have a bunch of Arcteryx gear and know that their stuff rocks. So, gave these a try and glad that I did...

    Thanks Clygirl!! Your reviews are super helpful.

    My wife got these shorts, here’s her take: These shorts are awesome. Perfect length for me and totally comfortable. I don’t find myself readjusting or messing with them at all when I’m running. Love the lightweight material as well

    Too big

    I found these ran too big, I’d order a smaller size but they don’t have it in the color I want. Other thN that they seem like awesome shorts!

    Love these shorts, they are comfortable, flattering, and breathable and have become my ! Awesome running or hiking shorts. Very comfortable about the waist - waistband is perfectly tight so shorts don't fall down while running or hiking.

    The Arc'teryx Lyra has quickly become my favorite pair of outdoor shorts. They are my go-to for hiking, trail running, and road running. The fabric is light, breathable, and soft. The thick waistband eliminates the need for a drawstring tie, and stretches to fit comfortably. The shorts fit snugly, while providing enough coverage and full range of motion. The zipper pocket is essential for a spare key, snack, etc. I highly recommend, and already want another pair.

    These shorts are by far the most comfortable outdoor shorts I have ever owned. They are pretty true to size and have a thicker waist band, which I really like. They have a larger back pocket opening for the large rear zip pocket for your phone, keys... etc. They are well ventilated, have a sewn- in brief and are made of a great,breathable, light fabric. They are a trimmer fit but work well with motion and do not chaff at all. I also absolutely love the Arc'teryx product guarantee. They guarantee the quality and performance of their products and items with deficits and materials or workmanship can be replaced or repaired at the discretion of the company for the lifetime of the product. I definitely recommend these shorts!

    I have both this year's and last year's iterations of the Lyra short. There have been some thoughtful redesigns, but overall I prefer the previous version. Arc'teryx made a few key updates to this version: 1. the waistband now has a more perforated/mesh lining fabric which increases breathabilty and comfort at the point where the shorts are in contact with your body. 2. The pocket in the back of the shorts is now a zipper closure, rather than an elastic stuff pocket. I like it a lot better. 3. The slit is shorter up the leg of the shorts, making them feel a little less mobile, but also less prone to HERE IS MY BUTT situations. All in all, I prefer the fit of the previous version, but these are still my go-to running and scrambling shorts.

    I wore these shorts everyday of a 3-week backpacking trip and they were amazing. Light weight, super comfortable, dried quickly after swimming. Now they're my go-to running shorts, and I love them *almost* as much as I did while backpacking. Only wish that they had a small pocket for keys... [I bought them in a medium since I like my running shorts a bit baggy, but the small fit as well]

    These shorts are a blessing. They flow with your movement, and separate slightly to allow your thighs the largest range of movement, and air circulation. The interior mesh is always appreciated. And they dry quickly if you run across a hot day or a puddle!

    Best Pair of Shorts I've Ever Purchased!

    These are honestly the best pair of athletic shorts that I've ever had. They are light and an extremely soft material. I usually dislike a lot of athletic shorts due to them being too short. These are the perfect length. Provide good coverage, but the slit up the side allows for them to move with you. Just wish they came in more colors!
