Speed, agility and competition-crushing endurance. The qualities you're training for are built in to The North Face GTD Running Shorts for Women. Part of the "Go the Distanceā€ collection, the GTD shorts are designed for lightweight performance and the ultimate in running comfort.

Made from featherweight materials that are perfect for runs in hot, sunny conditions, these North Face shorts have polyester fabric at the front and rear with mesh panels at the back yoke and sides for ventilation and super fast-drying capabilities. The built-in liner briefs wick moisture and dry out fast too, keeping you comfy and well-covered without weighing you down or bunching up due to bulky fabric-on-fabric friction. A back zippered pocket keeps your key and ID secure while reflective details help light you up in the face of headlights on an after dark home stretch.

Not only are The North Face Women's GTD Running Shorts so comfy you'll forget you even have them on, TNF made them in attention-grabbing color combos so every lady you pass on the track will show up next week with a pair of her own.

I love the feel of the fabric these shorts are made of - it has a soft hand and breathes very well. The zippered pocket at the center back is great for holding my keys and doggie bags -- things don't get pressed into my back and pocket-sweat doesn't get as pronounced as it does for me with internal pockets. These shorts also have an internal pocket on the right front hip that looks like it would keep things secure, but I haven't used it yet. The inseam is a little longer than I'm used to (I actually like that about these shorts) and the outer leg seams are designed to allow for great mobility. I'm 5'9" with a 25" waist and 37" hips -- the small I ordered fits perfectly.

Pros: zippered pocket, breathability

Has black spandex underwear within and is super comfortable for running, water sports, or everyday wear. Never rides up. The material wicks moisture, is lightweight, dries quickly and has print on it that reflects light(on front and back left corner). Good for warm weather- it's so light and comfortable that it almost makes you feel like you're running naked. Also includes two handy pockets that are really convenient for holding keys are an ID. The back pocket can hold a phone, but it will stick out and not be able to zip. So far I have been wearing these almost every day and they seem to be holding up pretty well even though the material is quite thin. I will say, if you are more conservative about showing some skin, this might not be the product for you since the shorts have quite a wide opening at the bottom. One could see the underside of your upper thigh depending on the way you sit or how you're exercising. All in all, this product lives up to the North Face brand.

Extremely light and comfy running shorts. These are more suitable for warmer weather. Consider these as part of your spring/summer running gear. True to size. I'm 5'3 with a size 6 pants size and these fit perfectly on me. These run on the shorter side so if you're looking for shorts that cover the thigh, probably not the shorts for you. These are running shorts style but you could definitely wear these in the gym, weightlifting, running, soccer, etc.


Great shorts

These are my new favorite running shorts. I have tried many brands, but these are by FAR the best! They are very comfortable, light weight and do not ride. They come in a variety of colors and I will purchase more! They run pretty true sizes and do not shrink or fade fast from washing and drying.

I would prefer these shorts to run a little longer, i.e. inseam of 5 or 6 inch, for more coverage. Yes, i would recommend this product to a friend if she likes 'short' shorts, but not for me.
