These shorts live up to their name "better than naked"! In the hot summer months they keep you cool and comfortable, even during a hot summer's day midday run. They seem durable enough. The only complain I have is the little pocket in the back which may let your car keys fall without you noticing, I wish they had some sort of closure mechanism to keep your keys safely in. When not needing a pocket, these shorts are 5 out of 5.
