See what the Wolfpack has to say
The longer bike short length makes the piece more versatile - running to the drug store after a workout, going on a neighborhood walk, company picnic or just the gym. Shorter yoga shorts may not always be appropriate for those venues.
Planning to get one in each color!
It is really great to have a longer short option for working out. I plan to use these for yoga and dance. I'm a size 12/14 (bought XL), and was a little worried about the seams cutting into my thighs. There's enough stretch that they don't. Fabric isn't super heavy (feels breathable, but covers). Wish they were a tad stretchier for my purposes.
