Great all-around athletic short even if not running

I can see how they would be great for running, because they are extremely light weight, but also great for an easy general-purpose athletic short (gym, summer golf, walking around, etc.). I bought them to replace my aging UA short with liner. These also have a liner, which I find very convenient because I can avoid the hassle of always having to bring an extra set of boxers or briefs to the gym. These seem even lighter weight than the UA shorts I bought a few years ago. I purchased the 7" and 9" and both are in the range of length I like. I don't like "short" shorts, but I also think long and baggy shorts can look dorky, especially for a medium to lean build. So, the 7s are at the lower end of that range, close to the knee, but not hiding the fact that I actually have knees somewhere down there. The 9s, for reference, are to or past the knee but not excessively long. I could easily wear the 7s or 9s, and would probably select depending on the activity or whichever pair happens to be clean. I think I will purchase a few more pairs of each.

Great pair of shorts.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Im a paraplegic. So I needed a pair of shorts I got easily pull on. Far exceeded expectations. Love the mesh liner and cool fabric.

Favorite workout shorts

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Lightweight, moisture wicking, do everything shorts. Ordered them a little larger because of what others said. Have 2 pair and will get more soon

Great shorts!

Like these shorts

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really enjoy these shorts. They fit well and stay in place when I'm exercising.

Awesome sorts

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I purchased these to wear over tights and 3/4 tights very good fit and very comfortable. I have the 7" and the 5" and love them both and the prices are awesome compared to other brands that are not even as good as UA.

Perfect Running Shorts

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As an avid runner (30-60 miles/week), I need shorts that perform. The UA Launch has exceeded my needs in every way. They fit perfectly and the mesh lining is not only perfect in the heat of my hometown (Las Vegas, NV) keeping me cool and dry, it is also requires no extra layers in the cold. The pockets work very well for nutrition packets during long runs. They wash well and are very durable. I have worn them for all nine of my marathons and all nine of my half marathons and will continue to wear them exclusively for all workouts, runs and future races. I highly recommend them and stand (run) behind my words 100%.

Exactly as advertised

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought two pairs of these shorts and they are exactly what I expected. Fit and comfort both good.
