JonathanSWwrote a review of Patagonia Strider Pro 5in Short - Men's on November 2, 2014
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I like this short; it has been my go-to running short since I first found it two years ago. Downside: expensive. Good stuff: I don't notice them at all / light in weight and in feel; thoughtfully designed.
The photo shows the pockets. There are two on each side; they close with an elastic gate; one is deep enough for an iPhone. There is one in the center-back, wide and shallow, with a zipper closure (it is also big enough for a phone.)
