Anyone familiar with my blog likely knows how much I love the apparel company Oiselle. I’m also a member of the Oisele Flock, which is overflowing with amazing ladies. Last week on Twitter I came across a blog series called “Oiselle Wednesday” on fellow Flock member, Cecilia’s blog, Mommies Run. I tweeted to her about how this was such a great idea for a blog series, and voila, I’ve stolen the idea and will also be doing some Oiselle Wednesday posts!
This week I’ve decided to review the Roga Shorts. Since it’s the first week of Oiselle Wednesday, the Roga Shorts were one of the first Oiselle pieces in my running wardrobe – and the are the short that started it all for Oiselle, the Roga Shorts seem like a great starting point.
I love the waistband on these shorts. The shorts have a yoga-paint inspired waistband, making them very comfortable and flattering. The waistband doesn’t shift or bunch up, which is always an added bonus. I’m not very tall (5″3’ish) and the length suits me.
There are two other members in the Roga short family – the shorter Mac Roga shorts and the Long Roga Short – to suit a variety of preferences. There’s a back zipper pocket, which is always a crucial feature. I prefer my zipper pockets on the back, so these are perfect.
The material that the shorts are made out of is super soft and the shorts aren’t poofy. Another thing I like about these shorts is that they stand up to the elements. Running in the rain? Not a problem. The material doesn’t become heavy and they don’t chafe.
Price-wise, the shorts are $46 USD per pair, which is a price I’m willing to pay for a good pair of shorts that are going to last – and these definitely do. I’m a quality over quantity person and when it comes to my running gear, I’m willing to spend a little more to get something that’s of high quality and is going to last me a long time.
Stay tuned to the blog each Wednesday, where I’ll review some of my other favorite Oiselle items 🙂
