    a little on the short side

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I received these as a gift. I probably wouldn't have purchased them on my own (initially the length would have put me off), but! they really are awesome running shorts.
    They are on the short side for sure, but they are so light and easy to move in. The inside liner keeps everything in place and basically that is all I feel. I love the small back zipper pocket which is nice for stashing a key when doing some trail runs.

    Best running shorts around

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    Hands down the best shorts I have run in. They have held up in the craziest of distances. I thought the no zippers would cause things to fall out, of course Arc'teryx designed it correctly and everything stays put.

    If there is a downsize to them, it's the price tag.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    I have an earlier version of these shorts (sans zippered pocket) in Medium, which I bought in an Arcteryx store in Toronto, but lost it, along with a couple of sweaty t-shirts, after leaving them behind at the gym. Ordered another pair recently in the same size, but they were MUCH SMALLER. I had issues simply pulling them up to my waist -- part of it was because the waist band had relatively little bulge (which I know), but mostly because they were too tight. Once on, the liner is so tight, it feels like someone was giving me a wedgie ...

    I ran a marathon and several trail races in my first pair, but I doubt my second pair will see nearly as much use.

    Sizing way smaller

      I alawYs wear medium. ALWays!! Everything Patagonia medium shorts and pants fit me perfectly in medium. I truly could barely get these on. I checked to see if I accidentally ordered women's medium? Nope. Men's medium. Fit me like I imagine Richard Simmons would want to wear his underwear. Quality seemed good though. The

      Bad A** shorts

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: large
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 172lbs

      5'10" 170-174#s and wear a large. Last year's shorts are my most favorite running shorts of all time. These are almost as good. These have a much longer string to tie them off, which is nice bc last years was the worst and I really in between the size of L and M. I prefer them to be a little baggier.

      Added a zip pocket, safer to keep a key in.

      Only Negative is they reduced the split of last years. I loved the split in the leg. Really showed off my muscle but not in a bragging way.
