Better than your basic short, the Brooks Women's Chaser 5" Short is lightweight and breathable with a longer length for modest coverage. DriLayer® fabrication offers excellent moisture-wicking to pull sweat away from the skin, while the wide waistband provides a flattering, soft, and secure fit. Flatlock seam construction prevents your skin from chafing, and two small stash pockets inside the waistband allow you to store your small running essentials. You will also have increased range of motion and ventilation thanks to the petal hem slits on the sides. All over reflectivity will help you stay seen in low light conditions.
