Better and cheaper than Lululemon and Chubbies athletic shorts.

Honestly blown away how perfect these are. The phone pocket WITHIN each side pock is amazing. No phone sliding out of pocket. The 5.5” is perfect length, not too long or short. Just that classic athletic fit. Do yourself a favor and buy in bulk from here

Maxx, we are so excited you love all the features of our Run Short! Appreciate you!

Great quality

I purchased these shorts for my son and he absolutely loved them. He said they are his favorite and very comfortable.

Jessica, we're stoked the quality and comfort of our Run Short met your expectations!

Love these shorts.

Love these shorts. They are light, comfortable, and more slimming than a lot of the other running brands. The pockets are great too. I will definitely purchase from Bearbottom again.

Thanks, Lauren, for loving our Run Short!

Really good shorts!

I like everything about these shorts. The only issue I have with them are that the waistband is a little tight and doesn't have much give. Other than that they are one of my favorite pairs of shorts!

Thank you for the review, Noah. We hope you try out some more Bearbottom styles soon!
