Can anyone recommend a good pair of men's running shorts that have zipped pockets, of a decent size, on both sides?

It seems a simple thing but really difficult to find. Most running shorts seem to have only one pocket, which makes it awkward if you want to carry both keys and jelly babies. And I really don't get the fetish for putting pockets on the back instead of the sides. Anything in them bounces up and down on your arse.

I have been using Lonsdale shorts which have three pockets, all zipped and all a really good size. The downside is that they are very cheap and it doesn't take long for holes to appear in the pockets. And they now seem to be discontinued as I can't find any in medium size.

I have recently been looking into the same. I run in baggy running shorts with one zipped pocket which usually isn't enough to carry what I need. I have run with a bum bag but would prefer not to.

These are really hard to find. I am looking to replace a couple of pairs of Nike tennis shorts that I use for running. These have served me well, being quite short, lightweight, with pockets both sides, a zipped one at the back and a hidden one on the inside that's a perfect size for a modern car key. I just can't seem to find anything else like them now though.

Not zipped side pockets, though.

Thanks for the suggestions all. I ordered one of each so hopefully one of them will do the job. The Asics one can be found much cheaper on eBay.

Got something to say?
