I love running in the Run:Response Shorts. They are so light, keep my dry from rain, and warm or cool as need be.

great shorts – love the lack of the “split” that plague many running shorts

While the Run:Response Shorts are a bit on the pricy side in my opinion they’re totally worth the money. Best running shorts I’ve ever worn. The boxer brief liner is what makes them for me, plenty of room unlike most regular brief style liners.
