Got these shorts on sale and while I do like a lot about them, I’m a bit torn as to the overall fit and functionality. The outer material is fantastic, stretchy and light/breathable. The wide waste band took me a little getting used to, but it's not uncomfortable and I could see how functional it would be on longer runs - you can really cram some gear in there.... The real issue is the liner - it's just strange; really boxy, excess fabric, loose cuffs. For me the liner is rather ill-fitting and uncomfortable during early miles, but I will say that when I've worn the shorts over longer runs, I have kinda forgotten about it and finished the run without chafing or any other issues.

I agree about the inner liner. I bought a size small and that size in running shorts usually fits me next to skin but these are the biggest small size running shorts I have ever encountered. I love the waistband but I wish it was a little tighter.
