Copywriter, here. Many run shorts have passed through my hands over the years and miles, but I will never let go of these: I'm obsessed to the tune of a dozen pairs. No, really. The soft, stretchy waist never bites or pinches. Fast-drying poly/spandex performs in all weather conditions. Secure back pocket; secret stash pocket in brief liner. Internal drawcord. 4" inseam. Hipster rise. 4, 6, 8, 10, 12.
