Ok but far too โ€œwideโ€

Purchased size L due to height, shorts are quite baggy and wide. Not like the photo. Ok quality, canโ€™t complain.

Ideal for training or trails

Very light, simple structure, no waist strong, no constriction, with very good side split and roomy. They are cut to sit on your hips, which is where they should be. These are unlike nearly all other 5 inch running shorts these days, which are styled like casual shorts, sit too high, with stupid hand pockets and tight legs. Admission...I cut the internal brief out and run in separate briefs with legs, to eliminate chafing. I do that with all my shorts. I left the key pocket intact and it still works. I just ran 80.5 km trail race in these and they were perfect. 2XU, please make these without

the internal brief, and sell a separate thin breathable brief, with legs.
