Odlo's Zeroweighht Running Shorts are designed with Odlo Logic windproof technology, a long but svelte cut, an adjustable waistband and a single pocket.
The medium size on test are a near perfect fit for this testers slim frame, there's no need to use the waistband adjuster which is unusual. The close fit carries on down the legs, this could be restrictive but the Zeroweight shorts have stretch in all the right places meaning we quickly forget that we're wearing them when out running.
The softshell material is a little rustly at first but gives good wind resistance, it does this while still wicking sweat and breathing well. The jersey waistband is unobtrusive and feels as comfortable as any garment we've ever worn.
A small hip pocket is perfect for stashing a credit card, key or small phone in, and the zip top ensures nothing falls out.
The shorts on test come in a muted green perfect for trail running, while reflective elements keep you safe on dawn and dusk road runs.
The Zeroweight running shorts manage to live up to their name, the price is high but the quality makes them worth it.
