These shorts have evolved over the years. The material is much softer and the legs have been narrowed. They are the best shorts I've ever had. The side pocket is perfect for a 16.9 oz bottle of water.

I find these comfortable, even on longer runs (10+ miles) - no chaffing or other issues. What I find NOT so great are the pockets. They are a weird shape and are designed more like nets, so anything with weight (e.g. my little Garmin device, an iPhone, or even something as small as a packet of gel) will bounce around in your pocket as you run -- which I find unacceptable on a long run.
Best shorts ever
Swim, run, sun. These shorts do it all. Best summer shorts ever.

Waist fits nice, leg openings too wide!
When you get these, they are super soft! The material is very high quality, and extremely well made! I ordered the "Retro Logo" which I loved the look of. But like the previous reviewer, I agree, the leg openings flare out quite a bit. I laid these shorts out with a couple of my favorite running shorts and even a couple pairs of swim trunks that I have and love. The Solana Run shorts had them all beat in regards to the width of the leg openings... by a couple inches in some cases, so disappointing! I didn't even attempt to test them out, I just returned them instead. Honestly, this product is truly the only product I've ever been disappointed with from DeSoto! Their triathlon shorts and tops are second to none!
Fit: Feels too big
wanted to try these for running, as ive heard good things about the brand. the waist fits fine, (im 6ft, 170 lbs.) however the leg openings were enorrmous. i could put both of my legs through one side of the shorts. deffinitely going back.

The founders of DeSoto are Emilio De Soto and Dan Neyenhuis. Emilio De Soto is a triathlete who is racing in his 27th consecutive season of triathlon competition. He is also fully immersed in his athletic lifestyle as a fitness trainer and coach. Dan Neyenhuis is an age-grouper triathlete who has been helicopter skiing for 20 years. Together, they created a company that designs cutting edge triathlon gear for triathletes, by triathletes.
DeSoto gear is designed to enhance performance in each leg of the race. The founders created the first mesh running cap, zippered tri tops, pocketed tri shorts, transition packs, tri suits, and tri shorts with discreet pads for cycling.
One of their other achievements was creating the DeSoto T1 triathlon wetsuit that is two pieces instead of one. The DeSoto T1 triathlon wetsuit was designed to make a better fit for triathletes, and each year, more DeSoto tri tops and DeSoto tri shorts are being added to the line. DeSoto is still the only company in the world that makes a two-piece triathlon wetsuit.
