Literally amazing!

I am wearing them as I write this! Super comfy, not too tight or restricting, soft and decently breathable and high waisted (the best) - they are a go to for pretty much anything but are amazing for my workouts and walks/bikes! Decent length on my thighs, which are pretty long, and not too short so they never ride up! Pockets are all super handy sizes and haven't stretched! Only thing is they pill a little bit in places if you wear something against them that rubs - like a backpack - for long periods of time. Easy fix though! LOVE

Great shorts!

These are so comfy! Initially, because I had the previous version which were shorter I wasn’t that keen, but after a few wears I find them even better. The big side pockets are excellent with larger phones.
