    I ordered Black Gaiam shorts with a liner and these were presented as an alternative color of the same shorts. They were not. Unfortunately, they virtually expose the sausage and the meatballs when doing happy baby. I may just keep them to go hike in. But, they are horrible for yoga.

    Apparently these aren't supposed to be put in the dryer, which is really annoying for workout gear. They fit as expected around the waist and hit midway between the top of the knee and mid-thigh. Zippered pocket is a plus. They are comfortable and work well for yoga, so besides the care instructions they're great

    The shorts fit as expected, are comfortable, have a nice cut, and work well in Pilates classes. They are great except for one factor, and that is pocket depth. There are pockets, and if they were an inch deeper this would be a winner. Pockets are a must for me, and these pants have two side pockets as well as a rear pocket that zips (a great feature), so they were very promising. I customarily carry my keys in one pocket and my cell phone in the other, but these side pockets are too shallow for me to feel confident that my phone or keys won't slip out when I sit.

    On the pair I received, the right and back pockets had a seam that was missed making the holy pockets useless. Additionally, the waist band is way too small. My size medium shirts fit well in the legs and other areas, but the waist was easily a size smaller. I could barely fit into them because of that and they would have been very uncomfortable to wear. Feels like sizing up to a large would make the rest of the short not fit as well.

    These shorts are a great value for only $20. I opted for size XL. I am generally a size 35 but wanted comfort so I ordered XL. The XL work fine with the drawstring and holds up without the string. I may go for L next time though. The quality is good, I am very impressed. I wear underwear under the shorts to assure that everything is held in properly. I definitely recommend these shorts.

    I love these shorts so much. This is one of those moments when you finally find shorts you are comfortable in, look good, and have a pocket if you want to use them for running, so you buy four pairs. That was me. Sleek, stylish, and good for exercise or just hanging out with friends. On a side note I have seen a loose thread on a couple, but they haven't ruined the shorts at all. May just be an anomaly.

    Gaiam makes solid clothes for a great price. I've bought a number of items from this brand and always happy.

    These shorts look great. They come just above the knee on me (I'm a 33" inseam). The pattern is subtle. The cut is good, definitely not tight but not at all baggy. They seem to hang on the waist perfectly. Great quality. I've washed mine 10 times or more and they look and fit the same.

    Great shorts at a great price.

    The shape of the short is very modern and very comfortable! Very nice color as well! The shorts move very well while working out. They are light feeling and breath well but still provide enough coverage and seem like they will stand up to the rigors of exercise over the long haul as well! Im sold on the company as far as comfort and style with this purchase!
