I do Crossfit, and always need a good pair of workout shorts. These are extremely well made, and are very comfortable. They're also fast dry shorts. If you happen to like jogging, and don't want to have your expensive MP4 or phone fall out of your pocket, then you shouldn't have to worry about that happening with these shorts, as they do have zipper pockets. I feel as if every workout shorts should have this feature; I'm glad these do.
