The Medal short is a no-nonsense short ready to rack up victories.

Questions & Reviews

Will McD (used product a few times)
About as straight-to-the-point as a running short can get. The 8in inseam is nice if you're doing something before or after your run and you don't want to be blasting your thighs wherever you go, or just for a lower-intensity run on a colder morning. The boxer-brief liner removes sweat actively but is otherwise almost unnoticeable. As a whole the shorts are incredibly lightweight, I primarily use them for UL backpacking and whether they are in my pack or on my legs I can't feel the weight if I try. These shorts are especially nice if you like the fit, feel, and weight of running shorts and like to use them for other activities like hiking, camping, paddling, etc.
