You know that feeling when you're running down a hill so fast you think you might take off? We put that feeling into a short. Ultra light, breathable and moisture-wicking, we've removed the liner from our classic Light As Air™ Short giving us a choice between boxers or briefs. Whether we're doing squats or running a marathon, it's one piece of training gear that won't weigh us down.

Good shorts, Poor sizing guide
I just wanted to write this to caution other customers that LL sizes might be different from what they're used to, and the sizing on the website might not be totally true to life.
I bought these shorts on clearance (final sale). The shorts themselves feel pretty good. I'm a medium in every item of clothing I own. When I asked the associate what size I should try on, I told him I'm a 33" waist and he suggested a Medium. They felt ok in store, but it was busy and I kind of just wanted to get out of there, so I bought them.
After wearing them around the house for a bit I noticed they were pinching at the waist.
After more discomfort I decided to measure the waist with no stretch on the elastic and it came in at 27". I understand that the shorts have an elastic waist and it's supposed to stretch, but 6" seems to be too much for me.
The shorts are pretty good and I'd probably give them 5 stars if they fit.
I really have no one to blame but myself in the end, but again I just wanted to make people aware that they should really make sure they feel 100% good before you buy, especially when you're paying this much for shorts.
