Improvements to the De Soto Solana 7” Running Short for men include a slimmer design in hip and leg area, but De Soto didn't leave out the 2012 upgrade to a Skin Cooler™ liner. This is the same fabric used on the Forza Tri Jerseys so it will now keep you much cooler on those long, hot runs. The Funnel Pockets are made of a non-rip mesh, sealed with Velcro so you can carry your keys with confidence, and swim without any drag issues. The preferred length of short by most triathletes, with a modest thigh length. This short is 3” longer than the Tuesday Run Short, but still well above the knee. It has a full-sided loose fit and a drawstring-elastic waist enabling it to remain in place while swimming. This short is made of a soft, less abrasive NanoSurf™ body.
