I've put some solid runs in the Fusion, ranging from 1hr to 3hrs at a time and have some good insight on how these shorts perform. Here are the things that stand out so far -
Pros - First off, why don't all running shorts have this wasteband? By far my favorite feature in the Fusion is the wide, soft and perfectly stretchy wasteband. With around 20 runs in the shorts so far, there's no sign of the band stretching out. My other favorite thing about the shorts is how soft the material is and how the tights liner doesn't ride up while I run. I have a few other shorts that ride up and I can't stand it. Before my first long run in the Fusion I was concerned about chafing (like all first long runs in new shorts). I'm happy to say that they performed great and there was no thigh chafing whatsoever!
Cons - One thing I would add in a future model is a gu or snack pouch along the band. I feel the zip in the back is great though adding one extra pouch along the band would be awesome.
Fit - I've used a ridiculous amount of running shorts and feel the Fusion are true to size. I'm a thin runners build and feel that there's still plenty of material to stretch if needed.
