    Fits and fill perfect.
    I have no issues with the inner liner riding up.
    Shorts also have on front key pocket and three rear pouches. I keep my house keys in the front and car keys, since they have a remote, in the rear pouch.
    That leaves room for one or two gel packs if needed. I have also used the rear pouches to store water cups during races, instead of just tossing them on the ground and making the volunteers clean them up after I have grabbed water during a race.

    Outstanding shorts. They are very light, fit perfectly, and stay in place without excessive pressure from the elastic band. The back pockets are ideal for a key pouch with my driver license, and the envelop design seems very safe. A smartphone wouldn't fit though, but I much prefer an armband for that anyway.

    This is my first piece of clothing from Asics and it will not be the last.

    This would have been a five star - but there is only one tiny pocket - and difficult to access - maybe okay for car keys. Interestingly, I've never had shorts without reasonable pockets - certainly one large enough for one's wallet. So for me this is unsatisfactory - but the quality is there, the fit and length are just fine.

    Light and comfortable. I use them for training and racing. They work great in a recent marathon. I like the three pockets under the waistband across the back of the shorts for holding multiple gel packs on longer runs.

    My husband is 5'4" tall and has a difficult time finding shorts that are not down past his knees. These are nice, have a pocket for keys, etc. they wash well and have held up well. He is happy with them.

    I am pretty used to Asics products for running, and this short was not the exception. The product was as described and the size was according to what I expected. Really comfortable and really soft fabric

    I am very unhappy with the product. The pockets are the problem. I id not like envelope pockets. I would like to return them.

    Fits and feels fine, for a while. However, since I routinely do 5+ mi on elliptical + jog a few miles + lift, the inner mesh gives me a rush (abrasion), which takes a few days to heal. Pretty unpleasant. I might use some athletic trunks, but this kind of defeats the purpose.
