New apparel styles have been filtering in for the Spring 2016 season from Patagonia, and these shorts are sure to be popular.

Long run ready

The zippered pocket offers secure storage for items you don’t want to lose, while the stash pockets are perfect for stowing items that you’d like to easily access, such as gels, chews, or bars. You’ll need that for your long run!

Side splits – Not only does this short feature a stylish scalloped edge, but it also sports a high split, allowing increased freedom of movement for your legs as you run.

Mesh waistband – This fabric is more than just visually appealing as a texture; it also provides these shorts with enhanced moisture-transfer. When you sweat, this material helps increase breathability and pulls the moisture away from your body.

Fashion forward

Each of these rich, vibrant colors is complimented with a contrasting color that really pops on the design accents. Though these colors are eye-catching, they grab your attention in the right way, and they pair beautifully with some of the Patagonia pieces from this season.

Design details – From the piping along the scalloped edge and split of this short, to the contrast drawcord and piping along the pockets, these little details really pop and add visual interest, taking this short to the next level.
