Love these shorts! Then neoprene waist band works great and adds more comfort than other shorts
i've worn.They allow for completely unrestricted movement.
The only thing is they run a bit small through the hips if you follow the size chart.
I'm a 32 waist,which should be a medium,but they were too tight.
I emailed customer service and had NO problem getting them swapped out for size large.
That's the only reason i gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
Overall a great product!
I will be buying another pair soon.

I was a bit skeptical of spending the $$$ on shorts that I, until now, only found aesthetically pleasing, but what a great investment. The shorts are comfortable, practical, durable, and stylish. I wear these every time I train and only wish I had another pair in a different color to switch it up. Moreover, I originally ordered a small which did not fit and RYU customer service had a medium size replacement in my hands within days.

Really great shorts with a nice fit and fabric. Material breathes really well and keeps you cool/dry while being really comfortable. Looking forward to more colors coming out so I can get those too. Worth every dollar, thanks RYU for coming out with such a great product!!

I do CrossFit and love these shorts. I always struggled with the flexibility, and comfort of shorts while working out. The neoprene back and all around stretch of these shorts makes working out easier, and more comfortable.

For everyday training
Its like putting on my favorite pair of shorts or shirt...I find myself doing more laundry every week so that I can sport RYU every day I train.
