Save your money. I bought two last time around a few months ago and A. The fabric is very rough and B. The seam on one pair is ripped already. They appear to be factory seconds because I have other Reebok shorts which have lasted for years.
I bought three pair the last time. After reading how bad they are here I guess I didn’t get as good of a deal as I thought!
Seriously, I like mine, have a pair on now. The pockets aren’t as deep as my favorite NordicTrack, or Nike shorts, but I’m not sure that’s a bad thing. I haven’t experienced any of the negative factors others have expressed. To be fair these are not $40 shorts, but for $10? I’m buying a couple more pair.
Wow … Thanks for the comments about the Reebok shorts. But to the folks saying all Woot sells is factory reject stuff, I have to say, I was going to buy these solely because I bought 2 pair (they only had 2 in my size) of the FILA shorts 2 months ago off Woot! for the same price and they are some of the best shorts I’ve owned.
Use them camping, projects around the house/yard, fishing, running, etc and they have been holding up great. No better or worse than the $40 UnderArmor shorts I was given for my birthday.
I guess I’ll just hold out until FILA shorts are back …
Ha, that’s funny, as I was skimming through the comments, I was intending to post that, while I didn’t know about the Reebok shorts in this woot, I did buy a couple of pairs of the FILA shorts a couple months back, and they were just as shoddy as the Reebok shorts people are complaining about here.
On one pair, the stitching was coming out around the pockets and down the sides before I had even worn them, and on the other pair after wearing and washing them, the same started to happen. I needed some new shorts for workouts/household work as I’ve had to retire a few recently, but I don’t dare wear those FILA shorts to do anything strenuous, they might just disintegrate on me.
Yeah pretty much. The impression is that these are of the quality you would get buying a $40 pair off the shelf at a store. If they’re not (and in most cases, it seems they’re not), then the $10 plus shipping is not really a great deal, then, is it?
I too, purchased 3 pairs of these shorts the last go round. 1 pair snagged bad on something, and the crotch split open. One of the other two pairs fit two sizes smaller, with the same exact tag size. So out of three, I have one pair that I may be able to use for while before they are junk as well. Save your money or buy the better quality and still cheap shorts at Target or Walmart, these just aren’t worth the money.
