Adam Sullivanwrote a review of Patagonia Ultra Short - Men's on June 9, 2010
So this shorts are awesome running shorts. They're super breathable and lightweight and really couldn't be more comfortable.
The pockets are really nice and I could easily carry my keys in the zipper pocket and a packet of clif blocks in one of the front pockets with no issues for an almost 3 hour run. I'm not too sure about the back pockets, seem like things would bounce around too much. I think they'd be good for something lightweight like sleeves or gloves when it's colder out.
The length is great with a 9" inseam. I was a little worried because my other shorts are 7" and shorter. But to be honest I never even noticed the extra length.
Great shorts and well worth the $55. Go buy some now!
