woven for strength and no-bulk performance, this four-way stretch fabric moves with us and stays out of our way
why we made this
Our best training partner, these shorts take us from trail runs to marathons. Made with breathable, sweat-wicking Swift Ultra fabric that's woven for strength, they have four-way stretch to match our stride. The comfortable brief liner helps keep our jewels from jiggling even when we're running stairs.

Obsessed with these shorts!
I love these shorts so much I had to review them. I now own 7 pairs in 5 colors/patterns and obviously they're not cheap... but they are THAT good!
The light, stretchy fabric makes makes them perfect for any workout- I spin obsessively, run, lift and hike every week and I use these shorts for all of the above. I'm a shorter guy (5'8") so these are also the perfect length for me- they land just above the knee when standing so they don't cut me off or make my legs look any shorter than they already are.
They have a brief liner which always fits perfectly (and makes your butt look great too!) and a small pocket that is just the right size for a phone and a credit card. I would recommend these shorts for ANY guy and especially guys who are 5'11" and shorter. They are so comfortable and truly make me excited to workout.

I'm more of a $15 Academy shorts guy so I never thought I would own a pair that cost over $60. You definitely get what you pay for. I just got the Surge Shorts III, they fit great, stay dry, you can hardly tell they are there. When I walk it feels like my wife is brushing her hand over my butt with every step, so I will be buying more of them needless to say ;-)

Shorts are great, minus the liner
I love the shorts. They look great. I only had two issues. There is no pocket high enough to stick an iPod in. My headphones don't reach all the way down to the one zipper pocket on the thigh. The main issue was the liner. Some guys might dig it but for me personally it just bunched everything up and was very uncomfortable. Im perfectly fine with trunk liners, but not brief liners. I loved the shorts so much I just cut out the liner. I wear them for running and cross fit. After cutting out the liner I have no complaints.

One Pair Great Other Pair Not So Much
So I got two pairs. And it isn't fair to say they suck or are perfect. My black ones I love they are great I wear them for strongman and crossfit. They look brand new even after a few washed and the liner is comfortable which was a surprise as I dont really like liners in shorts and never understood why they insist on putting them in every pair.
My grey ones that I got are NOT great. the material is different. It doesn't have the same stretch feeling and is wearing terribly. I have only washed them about 4-6 times but they look like horrible. They are all "pilly" I dont wash them in cottons and hang dry them but still no luck.

great at first... but then
For the first few weeks I had these shorts I thought they were amazing - then the smell, oh the smell!! Something about the coolmax fabric makes these shorts absolutely stink after a workout - to the point I disgust myself. I swear I dont smell that bad, it's like during my workout an animal goes up my shorts, dies and decomposes.
Other than that these shorts are great - just don't run behind me.
