Rated 5 out of 5 by Best running shorts on the market These shorts move with you. The fabric stretches with every movement providing great comfort. They are lightweight, but they wear like iron! The pocket has a great zipper and is perfectly placed for comfort. I can't believe the price of these shorts. The quality is much better than other shorts that are more than double the price. After you buy a pair of Alpha shorts, you will buy another. I have 7 pairs! February 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent basic running short These are excellent basic running shorts. They wear well, are comfortable, not flimsy, sewn well, and don't smell bad when - well, when after a long run. A very minor change I would like would be a slightly narrower width on the legs. My legs are fairly thin, so, these might fit others better than me. Nice rear pocket for a key and ID. July 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best shorts This is my fourth pair having recently purchased 3 others. They are the best fitting, moisture wicking, comfortable shorts I have ever owned in 40 years of jogging. April 22, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good middle ground I found these shorts to be a good middle ground between normal gym shorts and the really skimpy side-split shorts. I feel I can mostly get away with wearing these on days even when I don't have a long run planned. I've recently run both a marathon and a 5K in these shorts, and I have to say the only complaint I have is that they don't have any side pockets, and I'm used to stowing my energy gels there on longer runs. For the 5K, they were great and stayed out of my way so I could push my way to another PR. February 19, 2013
