Run Times Short *Block-It Pocket
Kind of Bummed
When I saw this online I absolutely fell in love, the shorts looked so flattering and comfortable. I also had some friends with the same shorts and they loved them as well. When I finally got one, I was bummed that they actually ran a size too small ( I'm usually a 6, so that's the size I ordered), unless the compression short is the look that's being sought after. I ended up keeping them anyway and began doing my normal workout routines. After one yoga class and hiking 3,400 ft the hem let loose. I'm really bummed that something so expensive was of such poor craftsmanship.

Go up a size?
These sounded promising for a 5'11" 140lb tall gal who is looking for a multifunctional short-hike, run, gym, errands after, something that is a little longer on the inseam so I'd fell decent going from a run to the grocery store. Trying them on the fit looked good, not that usual weird flare at the hip/side leg so many running shorts have. But the functionality was off. The inner short seemed a size or 2 smaller than the outer short, resulting in uncomfortable creep, tightness around the leg and bum, constantly having to pull it down. I couldn't wait to get them off. The inseam also is shorter than 4", I measured and it's 3 3/4". Perhaps a 6 would be better but I've worn them once and it doesn't appear the return policy will allow a worn item to be exchanged. Major bummer for my first LLL purchase.

Gets clammy at the back
I wanted a simple black shorts for running, but they only had this model with the block-it pocket feature at the time. I occasionally carry a 5-dollar note in my back pocket, so I thought I'd give it a try.
The pocket is wide and big, which is usually a good thing, but turns out not so much for these shorts...
The fabric used at the small of your back is not breathable (naturally!), and it gets very clammy and damp when worn on a warm day for running, esp. long runs.
I'm not a big sweater, but after one wear it becomes smelly which doesn't happen with my other running shorts.
Perhaps not an issue when working out at the gym, but would not recommend it to my running friends.

Love these - need more colors
I love these! The length is perfect for all activities and they are cool and easy to move it. Sad that there is only black.

I absolutely love these shorts. They fit perfect. The Length is perfect. My only complaint is that there are not more colors to choose from. :).

The perfect short
I love, love these shorts and I am not one to wear shorts. The length is perfect for working out and they are so comfortable. The liner is comfortable, not too tight and not too loose. They don't ride up and they don't slide down - they just sit where you want them to. The only slight drawback is that the block it pocket is too small to hold my iPhone 5 (it does have a VERY thin case on it, but i don't think it would fit even without the case). I debated removing a star for this, but the shorts are just too perfect in every other way. Please keep making these! For reference I am 5'6", 122 and I bought these in my usual size 6.

nice run shorts
These are great run/workout shorts. Speed shorts are comfy but a little too short to wear around - groovy run shorts are a little too long for working out - these are perfect combination. Love the pockets too

These shorts are the perfect blend of the speed short and groovy run short! Love them!
