Running Shorts With Pockets Are Your Best Friend On Summer Jogs

Summer runs can be life-affirming. The birds are chirping, the trees are green, you smell like sunscreen. And the weather is nice, if sometimes a little too warm.

If you ditch your leggings for shorts during these delightful, dog days jogs, however, you might struggle to find a good place to to keep your keys, ID, and phone. Many running shorts don't have pockets, after all, or if they do, they're so small as to be functionally useless.


That's why we rounded up the best running shorts with actual, useable pockets. Here are a few picks that will keep you cool but prepared, if you're like me and don't want to travel light.






Lululemon Track That Short 5"


Designed with runners in mind, this bright pair has sweat-wicking fabric and side pockets large enough to fit a phone — with a zipper, so your gear won't fly out when you're jogging down the road.
