great shorts

Great shorts for workouts and smaller runs. I really like the side pockets and key pocket, great length and the wide high waistband is flattering and practical. They are tight enough to not slip down in a work out and be secure yet they don't cut your thighs in half at the middle and cause unsavoury buldge like other workout short tights I have. I do tend to sweat a lot in workouts however so I wouldn't wear them for more than an hour as they are quite a heavy material and not sweat wicking, not suitable for my longer runs.

Very comfortable bikers

They're ridiculously soft and breathable. Comfy to go on hikes, ride bike and exercise but also sleep/lounge in. Dark olive is a lovely green. Pockets fit samsung s20 fe phone, cards, keys etc.

Comfy pocket bikers

I love these shorts. I wore them in a recent half marathon and they held up well with plenty of pocket space. I sized up but really shouldn't have -if I load up the pockets and run they slip down a bit. I would recommend sticking to your usual size. They have a very soft but sleek cottony feel and are squat proof.

Best pair of bike shorts!

These bike shorts are comfy, easy to wear and have such great pockets to store my keys and phone when doing errands or going for a walk. They're the perfect length and the waist band sits so comfortably on my tummy! Wouldn't change anything about them :)

Lightweight, stays in place and worth the $$$

Say goodbye to Instagram fitness brands because this does the job at a great price with value. It is also not super thick which allows for airflow for jogging.
