go to sports direct and try them on, it's good stuff. they sponsor the great trail challenge in lake district and are based in cumbria. I ran Jedburgh HM today in a pair of their shorts that must be 5 years old, I do think they are shrinking though, just at the waist...

A lot of my running gear is Karrimor because it's so cheap. Not the best quality, as has been said already, but it's OK and it does the job. The only word of warning I'd add is that their shorts used to have poorly thought out seams in the crotch area which always chafed me. I don't bother with their shorts now. Their tights, long and short sleeved shirts and socks are fine, though.
