My Favorite Running Shorts with One Caveat

I can't say enough good things about these shorts. I love the compression inner short because it is a very good fit without being too snug. I really like the outer shorts because of the two deep pockets. I ran multiple marathons in these shorts and I can fit a phone and multiple gels in these pockets so I never need a runner's belt or any other carrying devices. They look really good and are comfortable to run in for short runs, long runs and races of any distance. I find that they may be a little too warm for summer running but that's a matter of personal preference and I still use them all year-round. My biggest gripe with these shorts is there durability. They don't last me more than two months. They form tears at the seams as well outside the seams on the inner short and lead to painful chafing. It's very irritating that UA hasn't addressed this defect after having these shorts on the market for a decent amount of time. If they fixed the durability issue I would give them 5+ stars but until then I must go with 3.5 stars.

Wonderful fit

Had these for a month, slightly better than the similar Nike shorts I purchased at the same time. They are more comfortable to wear but we shall see which perform better after several washes.

Maximum competitive short

Perfect short for extreme performance during competition. The built-in compression supporter allows for confidence of movement.No jock strap required. Great for all court sports. In my case these shorts aided in winning the World/National Handball Championship this year in my age category.

Great shorts!

Love these shorts to workout or swim in. UA, put out more colors!


While they are a little snug...due to the compression liner....they are extremely comfortable. I used them for a morning run and then a second pair for a Crossfit workout. I absolutely love these. The pocket came in handy as well. Great shorts! I am 5-11, 32 waist and bought a medium

The only running shorts I use

I run just about every day and I have struggled finding the right pair of shorts that combine comfort and performance. I bought my first pair in August 2017 and cycled them through my other pairs of shorts and it got to the point recently where I was running during the day and washing them at night to use the next day. I bought two extra pairs and I use them for racing, training and just everyday running. My absolute go-to short.

Good pair of shorts for walking or running

the inner tights prevent chaffing and the outer lighter fabric allow air cirulation

Shorts reduce inner thigh chafing from sweat and rubbing.

I'd put on weight and was chafing when running. The 2 in 1 shorts help minimise the chafe and work out cheaper compared to wearing separate shorts over tights. The 2 in 1 combo feels lighter and cooler to wear. This combo is more convenient to launder and to locate in your clothes drawer. Subjectively I wouldn't run with my key in the pocket unless I had safety-pinned it in or similar security.

Great product. Lightweight & they stay in place on waist due to the inbuilt bike pants. Only downside is that they ride up in the crotch when in use.

very comfortable & sit well on waist due to inbuilt bike pants. Only problem is that they ride up in the crotch. Other fabrics don't always do this for example a pair of asics shorts I have. Happy overall:)

Runs small

I have many running/training shorts from other companies in large. I bought a pair of these in large and find that I can barely get them on. Once they're on, the fit fine and are very supportive.
