Rated 4 out of 5 by RoseSt Fine shorts but not for me
Fine shorts but I returned them---good fabrics and well made but just too much short for me. Didn't like the under liner or the iridescent LL label prominent on the front.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CiCi1020 great workout shorts
This is the second pair I bought since the shorts fit so well (my other pair is the black). The length is perfect - not too short, not too long. The fabric is a nice weight as well and absorbs sweat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Weightwatcher Great fit! Very Comfortable!
I love these shorts! I'm a 56 year old runner; 5'3" and 130 lbs. I ordered a small and they fit great! I'm short-waisted and I like the rise on these shorts - not too low. The length is very comfortable for running - not too short and they don't ride up. Unfortunately there is no zippered pocket like the description says, but in spite of that, I'm still giving them 5 stars because of the comfort factor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cottoncandylover MORE COLORS PLEASE!
OMG, this is the first time that I have tried these shorts and the fit is perfection! I am 5' 5", 153 lbs. and the Size M fit perfectly. After trying them on, I ran to my computer to order them in more colors and was so disappointed to find that they are only offered in black and gray. Please offer these shorts in lots of colors, I'll be the first in line to order them! By the way, in response to a previous reviewer, I can't find the zip pocket either!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jude1 comfort shorts
Very comfortable shorts. I am 5'0 and weigh 122 Lbs. I am fit and active. The xs are a perfect fit. The only negative is the built in briefs, not a fan of those. Other than that, I love them. I ordered both colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Janieec One word- PERFECT
I will get more of these work out shorts. Great for Training, step class, runs or just all day wear! The length is just right, short enough but not too short. THey make my legs look longer without being too skimpy. Material is solid as well. Thank you Bean!

They are "comfortable" and they are "short(s)." Actually too short to be comfortable when I sit down. They go way up, in an unflattering, uncomfortable way. There are two fabrics that make up the shorts. The lower part is a thin (in a good way) kind of fabric that would dry quickly. The upper part is a soft kind of knit synthetic. It sort of sits on my hip bones. There is no way to snug it up at all. (I tried an XS), and it felt worrisomely loose. The part that really bugged me is the hidden so-called "pocket." It is in the waist band. It is barely big enough to hold a normal house key. There is no way to secure the pocket so that it will stay closed. You just have to trust that your key won't fall out somewhere on your 10 mike run. Cell phone doesn't fit, ID doesn't fit. Maybe you could put a band aid in it. I found the pocket to be so annoyingly useless that it just made me not want to bother, so I sent them back. Listen up, L.L. Bean--I like my running shorts to have a pocket with at least a fold-over top. I prefer a zipper and a nice size pocket. I feel safer when running alone if I have a pocket that can accommodate a small cell phone. Your black fitness shorts (I have 3 pairs, but they only come in black) have a perfect mesh pocket and zipper in the back, inside the shorts. It is exactly the right thing.
