Great Fit & Comfortable

I love these New Balance Impact Run 5" shorts. I bought two pairs at the same time (a black pair & a blue pair). I will copy and paste this review under those as well.
~ Very lightweight
~ Decent length for running or hitting gym
~ Liner fits perfectly
~ Comfortable to run in
~ Dry quickly
~ Back pocket big enough for phone
~ True to size
~ Waistband is not too tall
I haven't found anything I dislike about them.
These are good at wicking moisture and heat away. I live in the South and it gets hawt down here (that's like hot up North...but even hotter). So, I sometimes find myself hiking up the hem a little on hot days with runs over 5 miles.
The liner in these is perfect for me, so I don't need to wear underwear like I do with some others.
New Balance has made a great product here that runs true to size (in my estimation). I bought mediums. It's hard to tell looking at the models or charts, so I included my measurements below.
Waist 30-33" (depending on manufacturer)
Body fat: about 8%
I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for mid-length running or gym shorts. I have since bought some 3" NB shorts and love them just a titch more on hot days like this.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend to a friend.
