Product review: BOA running shorts


I'm not actually cool enough to get these products sent to me for review. My girlfriend is, but I have a way to go yet.

Sometimes however, she gets me things. Either on purpose or accidentally, it doesn't matter. 

And I review 'em. 

I still have no job, so what the hell else am I going to do?

I run in short shorts. I cannot stand wearing long shorts. What the hell is the sense of long shorts? Just wear pants. If you have little chicken legs, who the hell cares? You can still dress like decent respectable citizen.

Don't wear long shorts. My advice to you for the day. 

Wear these!

Best shorts I own

You can get your pair here. But damn, look at all their latest gear!

I'm going to give you a little run down on my BOA shorts here.

They are short. (we've already covered this, ya?) But when I say short, I mean they're only a bit more than Boy Shorts. Mine have a one inch inseam.

Please don't make fun of my back bacon.

They wash clean, every time.
I have to Vaseline the hell out of my crotch every run. Even after washing, most of my shorts now stink like petroleum jelly and sweaty junk.
Not these.

This makes them great for silly Foam or Color runs.

That's my kickass mom right behind me.


They dry really damn fast. In the Carolina humidity, this is quite obviously an advantage. Sweat and water, both evaporate nicely.

They are ridiculously comfortable. You won't know you wearing them. 
Everyone else might if you're sporting the flashy color patterns, but you won't.

They have held up wash after wash. I've had these 2 or 3 years now, and they still look brand new. Quality fabric in these.

BOA does make a wide array of  different length and style shorts for men and women, as well as cold weather gear and tops.

So far I've only had the opportunity to wear this particular model. And I can tell you, people notice these shorts. The Hashers love them, but they are also very, very visible when running in low light conditions (I recommend lights and reflectors too!)

The most expensive pair of men's shorts from BOA is forty bucks. That's quite reasonable for a quality pair of shorts. But the kicker is most of their shorts are in the thirty dollar range with some as low as sixteen bucks! Man, that's pretty cheap.

Go buy these shorts, I think you'll like them.
