And the outer short is made with stretch panels that improve ventilation and allow for complete freedom of movement.

  • Stitch-free construction on critical seams reduces weight and eliminates chafing

  • Back kangaroo pocket offers access to storage from either side

Comments about The North Face Better Than Naked Split Running Short Women's, Coastal Fjord Blue, XL:

I love these shorts. They're light and quick drying - perfect for summer runs. The kangaroo pocket easily holds my iphone and a couple other things, my key goes into the zip pocket. Some don't like the semi-sheer quality or the material of the side panels but they don't bother me. I use the BTN shorts for running and have the skort for SUP. I'm 5'2" and 112#, bought a small and the fit is just right. The only problem is that that the side panel hems are a wreck... the material is fraying and separated from the hem, which hangs down all by its lonesome ... on both my skort and shorts. It's terribly disappointing because I love the BTN shorts and skort and thought I had finally found the perfect shorts.

    Comments about The North Face Better Than Naked Split Running Short Women's, Coastal Fjord Blue, XL:

    This version of the BTN short features side panels that are very large and *very* translucent. They clearly display the inner lining, so it looks like your underwear is showing through. I felt exposed. As much as I love the BTN short, I can't feel comfortable with that going on. I'm returning this one. =(

            I wear these shorts for hiking and crossfit. I'm not terribly tone in the legs so a little bit more length would be nice, but the length doesn't deter me from wearing. I bought size Large I'm 5'5" and 172lbs

              I wore these shorts for my half marathon over the weekend. I was a little skeptical of the side paneling, but they were so light and comfortable. The pocket in the back is perfect for keys and gels. I didn't experience any chafing either! I wore these with the BTN shirt and it made for a comfortable race day.

                I bought these for a trip to Hawaii where I knew I would be engaging in hiking and other activities that I wanted comfortable clothing that was versatile and practical as well. Nothing but perfect! These shorts are just what was needed.
