Need more colors!
Great short. Why don't they offer this in more colors? Would like red and Hunter Green like they used to have. Not all team colors are black or navy! Would buy a doxen if they had other colors.

Size does make a difference
I wear the shorts for workouts. I had lost some weight so this was moving down in size and the fit was great- no bagginess.

Lower quality than what they used to be
There is no noticeable difference between these shorts and other low cost options. They used to be made of heavier material with a thick waistband. I will not buy these again. Try Sofee shorts, which still offer a beefier type of gym short that wears well.

Outstanding product and great price!
I use the product as my shorts when I sleep at night. I could also use a duplicate for exercise shorts at the gym.

Can't complain at that price
I thought I might use these shorts for tennis, but they are a bit flimsy, hard to pocket the tennis balls, and seems I have to hitch them up too frequently. I might shorten the legs a bit as I do like the feel of the fabric for lounging about type of use.

Glad I found these
I have been wearing these for years as my in house comfort shorts and I could not find in stores now. I got 4 and ordering 4 more. For a real treat try the long pants for winter comfort. Not too thick or too thin!!!!!

Shorts that don't "burn you up" !
Great shorts , stay clean, I work on cars, and grease and oil seem to "wash out" easily, they're easy to wash, don't fade, they need no special treatment.

Declining Quality Over The Years
I have purchased Russell Athletic Workout Shorts for years. With each successive purchase quality of shorts has gone down. Material is more flimsy. Pockets are not as deep. Less elastic in waistband. Drawstring is shorter and less sturdy. NOT PLANNING ON PURCHASING THEM AGAIN. SWITCHING TO ANOTHER BRAND VERY SOON.

Comfort!
Lasts a long time even after many washes. Color stays true. Just a little baggy on my short frame. Wish these shorts would come in a shorter inseam.
