Fast and light: what does it really mean? To us, it means freedom. Moving unhampered (well, hampered only by the obstacles you encounter), taking the bare minimum, and enjoying the motion... and that sounds pretty good to us! 

Koulin Trail Shorts give you the freedom to run without losing the convenience of a few handy features. Polygiene treatment means these short will spend less time in the wash and more time out on adventures! 

An active cut and great next-to-skin feel make Koulin Trail Shorts really comfy, giving you the coverage you want without chafing or restricting your movement. The mesh inner is breathable, soft, and wicks moisture away from your skin. They fit snugly but aren't too tight, and flatlock seams prevent rubbing. The outer fabric is stretchy and quick-drying with a split seam that leaves you really free to move. 

Although lightweight, the Koulin Trail Shorts are well-featured so that you can carry as little extra luggage as possible. A zipped rear pocket – big enough for an iphone – is ideal for valuables, whilst the low-profile mesh stash pockets on the thighs give you ample storage for gloves, gels, your hat... There’s even an attachment to keep you from losing your keys!

Best Trail running shorts I have worn

Comfortable, stretchy material that does not chafe the inner thigh, even after long runs of 20+ miles. They have pockets too!!!! Keep you comfortable and dry too.

So good, i bought a second pair!!

I really liked these shorts from the very first wear. I've worn them for long runs on hot days, and they remained as comfortable as when first put them on.

Most shorts cause me some irritation due to being elasticated on the inner leg, whereas these have more of a short liner - which also helps to prevent chafing - so don't need to wear additional anti-chafing pants. The rear pocket easily holds my phone securely (with minimal phone bounce when running), and side pockets good for holding my car key / gels etc.

I would definitely recommend these shorts to any runners.

Excellent shorts

I bought these shorts recently as it is often difficult to get good running shorts with pockets! The shorts are a little heavier than other shorts I have but not significantly. There are essentially 3 pockets - stretchy ones at each side (not zipped) and one bigger pocket at the back (zipped) which comfortably would hold gels or a phone. They are 'stretchy' so it means you are well protected from chafing - I think this is what is meant by "active cut". I wore them on a 16 mile training run and they were incredibly comfortable so I will try them on a marathon.

These arrived very quickly with excellent service from Alpkit (as usual).
