Run: Speed Short *Block-It Pocket
Not the same cut as regular speed shorts!
I LOVE speed shorts. The cut, the fabric, the fit...it all works for my main activities which are running and crossfit. Please be aware, though, that the "block-it" pocket version is a slightly different cut. The waistband is approximately 1/2" wider. I might appreciate this if the top of the waistband fell 1/2" higher, but the rise is the same and instead they have moved the seam between the luxtreme waistband and the swift material down 1/2" to a less comfortable position on my hips. It doesn't change the length of the shorts, they have just used less swift material and more luxtreme waistband. I attached a picture to help illustrate (same sizes, flashlight is the original and confetti is block-it). I don't hate the pocket, but I do notice a difference in the fit and I prefer the original version.

I love the length of these shorts. Very comfy and they dry quickly. I have worn them in the water.
The only thing i dislike, is the built in underwear have a very thick elastic around the butt/legs and it causes a VERY obvious panty line....more like indent! It would be nice if the underwear cut was a little more flattering and not so bulky. Because of this, i don't wear them other than around the yard or where I know there isn't many people.

I am obsessed with these shorts. I own two pairs because I could not stop wearing them.

wearing these all summer long
I normally do not write reviews, but since I ordered these sunday and they arrived today (Tuesday), I was incredibly pleased with its speedy delivery. Anyway, these shorts are a great buy! I've been eyeing these for a while and finally decided to buy and sure glad I did! These shorts are fairly short but I'm 22 so I am not bothered by it. They are very light weight and look great. We will see how these hold up over the course of the summer!

I can't stop wearing these. They are so comfortable and sit on your waist in the right spot. Also, they look nicer than other athletic shorts because they have a clean, one color look. The fabric is soft and great for running, dancing, and yoga. Yet they are versatile and I also wear them as lounge shorts. The pocket in the back is very useful for carrying around a card or two, although is not big enough for a phone (just in case anyone is wondering). Wonderful shorts and I think I might buy another pair. There is also no need for lint rolling on these shorts!

Obsessed with these shorts!
I love these shorts! They have a great feel to them that make them perfect for nearly any activity. The are a little short in the front but they are a bit longer in the back which keeps your booty covered. I normally wear a 6 in lulu pants and same was true for these shorts. Great shorts, can't wait to buy more!

These are amazing shorts. I use them for every sport I play (ultimate, softball, field hockey, etc) and find that they work in every situation perfectly. In addition, I use them at the gym and on the track all the time and the back pocket is the perfect size for tucking my keys and gym membership in. They are so comfortable and versatile, and let your legs have tons of room to breathe while you run. Plus, they are fashionable, which is always great. They have been great quality so far and I haven't experienced any problems with the material. Well worth the expense.

Favorite Shorts Ever
I bought these in black in a size 10. They fit pretty true to size but I sized up since I prefer a looser fit when running. These shorts are the most comfortable things I've ever worn and the fit is super flattering. I love these shorts so much that I will sometimes do an extra load of laundry in the middle of the week just to wear them. The fabric dries quickly and is cool enough for hot weather.

While these shorts are great for running, I had planned to wear them to class as well and will not be doing so. They are SIGNIFICANTLY shorter and tighter in the front than in the back.
Quality is just ok. One of the little vents in the back is gappier than the rest, but we all know these aren't manufactured in Canada anymore.
And as a side note, these REEKED from the moment I opened the package. Not sure what else is being made in that factory but I would suggest some odor control...........
