Aside from the oddly long draw cord, I like these shorts. They fit well (I'm a 34-35 waist and the Large fit perfectly), launder well, move and give appropriately for an all-purpose workout short, and the pockets accommodate a standard size smart phone/and or set of keys. What more do you want? I've worn them regularly for over a month now and they are holding up well with no fading or pilling. I'd recommend these to anyone looking for an everyday workout short.
