Passionate about racing? Then the brilliant Mizuno Maverick half-split is an ideal choice. It offers lightweight, quick-dry material and a secure side pocket for your essentials.
Comments: I should add that I bought two pairs of these shorts, and had to return one of them. The waistband is larger, both relative to the rest of the shorts and to the 2011 version. Unlike all my other shorts, these won't stay up (even when dry) without tying the drawstring. Odd. From: Clive, Charlotte NC USA
Comments: I have two pairs of the 2011-edition shorts, which are almost water-resistant. These, however, are moisture sponges -- they were dripping wet after a 12-miler when I hadn't even dumped water on myself. In the dead of summer or a hot race, I'll have to tie the drawstring to keep them from getting heavy and falling down. Even at that, they get soaking wet and then stick to my legs. I regret buying these. From: Clive, Charlotte NC USA
