Great lightweight shorts

I don't normally wear a lot of shorts, however these were worth making a change in my ways. The shorts fit really well. They are super lightweight and feel comfortable. They look good with the lightweight full zip jacket I purchased in the same color. It is excellent of Salomon to provide wardrobe options that help when travelling.

Like the length, fabric is light, fit small

These shorts fit what I was looking for because they are long enough, split, and feel light. However they fit small, the large works best for me but I am usually a medium in shorts. The mediums tended to ride up and the fabric felt scratchy when it was a bit more fitted. The brief has some seams and the fabric itself feels scratchy (all sizes), it is quite uncomfortable. I actually cut out the brief, and that works much better for me. The shorts are comfortable, and they work, but they aren't amazing. The best/closest to good I have found recently, and I needed new shorts this year. I have worn them for several long training runs in the heat and also gotten them wet swimming and they stay comfortable and don't ride up. Also wore them in a road 1/2 marathon and they were good.

Almost perfect

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 6"

I love the style and feel of these shorts. The only thing is that the front folds a bit weird and clings to my legs more than I would like. I got size small, I have a 26" waist and 38" hips and the waist fits perfect. I wish that the front of the shorts hung straight down from the waist like in the picture, but overall I love these running shorts!

All around killer running short

Great running shorts. Fabric is nice and light, they dry quickly, they're well made, and they fit true to the sizing info on the website. Strongly recommend

Waistband is way too big

I absolutely love the fabric of these shorts. They are incredibly lightweight and breathable. However, the fit is baffling. The waistband of the shorts are so large they don’t properly sit on the body. The fit on my hips is normal, but here’s a comically large gap at the waist. Plus, there’s no draw string to tighten the waistband! So I have to either roll the waistband or pull them down to my hips low-rise style which makes them ride weird at the crotch. If you are a woman with hips, avoid these shorts.

Great lightweight trail shorts

I love these shorts. The material is really lightweight and stretchy. The small pocket in the front is just enough room to carry a key which is all I need most runs. The fit is very flattering, and the split leg allows for easy leg movement. These shorts are really simply designed, and yet perfect for what they are, amazing trail shorts. Also, I love the inseam length!

Nice colour shorts

Nice colour and v lightweight. Although they have a 5 inch inseam they do ride up as the fabric is thin & clings to thighs when sweating, so have to wear undershorts to prevent chafing.

I love these shorts

I have chubby inner thighs, so I am always on the lookout for shorts with more than a 2inch inseam. I've resorted to men's shorts, because they seem to be the only ones that have a longer inseam but not a ton of extra fabric just flowing around. Until now! These shorts *absolutely* fit the bill. I love the very lightweight, where they ride on my hips, and thigh coverage. I've run up to 20 miles and no chafing!! Love, love, love these shorts.

New Favorite

I cannot say enough praise for these shorts. They have become my go to for weekend long runs (around 3hrs) in my current very hot and humid climate. The shorts are so light and feel great whether dry or wet. They even stay put with no chafing after getting completely soaked with sweat/melted ice water. The inner brief is comfortable and airy—I don’t even bother with undies. The shorts are very easy to wash, and I just hand them up to dry. Then they are ready to go again in a few hours.
