I can’t believe how much I love these! Great thick but not hot fabric, mid compression, large pockets and they don’t ride up. I wore them on an 8 mile run and was so impressed. Also, they are reasonably priced so I’ll definitely be ordering more. Hopefully they make them in more colors.
I bought two pairs of S in 5” and they fit perfectly (I’m usually a size 6 in Oiselle and Lulu and either a S or M in Brooks or UA). The side pocket isn’t bigger than my iPhone 13 Max, but the phone doesn’t jostle or jiggle or jump out mid-run. The shorts do not ride up! I love the matte fabric. It’s light but high-quality (not flimsy or transparent).
Koala Clip quickly became my go-to leggings and now running shorts. I love the pocket options. I’m somehow able to carry more in my pockets while also forgetting I have anything on me. So comfortable!
I bought these on a whim, exasperated with so many other lycra shorts not working, and am sooooo pleased I took a chance. Ya girl's got thick thighs and chafing is a real struggle. Honestly, every time I put them on for the first three months, I thought there is no way these are going to work bc they felt too short. These are the only shorts under 7" that I have found that don't ride up or chafe on a run. And I'm not talking "Oh they're only good for runs 10mi and under". I've worn these for trail ultras in the middle of summer, with the pockets stuffed and not one bit of thigh chafe or needing to pull them down bc they started to ride up. Iphone w/ case sits comfortably in either pocket, and doesn't bounce around or feel like it's going to pop out of the thigh pocket. First pair has about 500 miles in them and the fabric is just now starting to pill a little in the inner thigh, but the seams are still perfect (thick thighs = thigh rub). I've had Athleta, Lulu, and even Craft tights wear faster. Waist band is high/wide enough that it doesn't roll during runs, but I have noticed it roll a bit when doing core/strength stuff. The only time I find myself needing to adjust/pull them down is if I'm doing a lot of squats. Fits true to the size chart. Only changes I would make (and these are totally personal preference) would be make them 6" instead of 5", and have thigh pockets on both sides. Bomber shorts, will be buying these until they stop making them (which I hope is never).
I've been using Koala shorts for months, what I love about these shorts is that I don't need to put Vaseline for my runs, this is the best for me. Also, having the back zipper pocket is great for small things like keys and ID. I got my 3rd shorts 2 weeks ago, I ordered the wrong size and the customer service was fast helping me with the label return to exchange the size.
