Hitting it out of the park

You guys are just like the band Spoegwolf.. just when I think you/ they can't get any better, there comes a new release that is even better than the previous one! Hitting it out of the park with these pants.. just like the Speedpro shorts, but love, love, love the extra zip pocket


Did my first 15km trail run with it, and it worked so well! Love the zip pocket and pocket on the side. Much easier to get to gels.
Andddd received so many compliments! Thank tou Burnt!

Run approved

I love running, trail or road, and was looking for something stylish yet functional. These definitely ticks my boxes. Good length, not too short. The grip around the leg is nice and stretchy yet “sticks” so you wont be running in “hot pants” after you’ve gone flying down a hill. Pockets are great, I could fit my phone and there’s additional pockets for keys/money. So no worrying that you might lose your key when you perhaps want to snap a pic.
Material is great/not see through and wont show your underwear if you decide to do a random squat/yoga pose.

All in all these are my favourite in the cupboard at the moment. Not just for style, but functionality.
