    I recommend this product
    Love it

    I really like these shorts. They are comfortable as well as practical for multiple fitness pursuits. The pockets come in handy and are well placed. I find them easy to care for as well-I simply rinse thoroughly with fresh water and air dry.

    Favorite tri shorts

    Long time customer. Desoto has been my “go to “ shorts for years. I only wish they were available in more colors. Years ago there was a silver color I really liked.

    Love these

    These shorts are really comfortable! The pockets are great and they are great for multitasking workouts. I have worn them for short swims, runs, and bike rides and they work perfectly. I am not certain that they will be a great choice for racing or longer rides but I love wearing them for workouts and will look forward to buying a second pair!

    The size chart above should serve as a general guide. If you would like assistance in determining the proper size, please send the following information to

    WEIGHT - Accuracy helps us provide a more accurate size for you.
    CHEST - Fullest part of breast, measured as the largest part of circumference right over the pectoral muscle.
    WAIST -  Circumference measured at the belly-button line - this is NOT the same as your pants waist size.
    HIPS - Circumference measured at the widest point, NOT at your hips where your belt may go. Typically this will measure just a few inches below your hip bones and around the largest part of the glutes.

    If you do not have a tape measure and you need something to measure with, use a belt, or smart phone power cord, and a ruler.
