Im tired of using my Army PT shorts when I go to the gym. I'm thinking something like "Sprawl" shorts, long and loose. Anyone got a recommendation for a good pair of shorts that will give me the freedom of movement required?

Im looking to buy online, so please post the website if you know it.

I bought a pair of these at the Nike store. I liked them so much I went back and bought another pair. They have no drawstring, require no belt, have some kind of webbing or gusset in the crotch, are dri-fit so they're cooler than cotton...there just great short. They even have an ipod pocket if you like to drown out other people's inane conversations at the gym. Link is WFS

The shorts here are awesome.
I have 3 pair and love them so much I want more.
They are MMA shorts and do not have any pockets but for the price they are worth it.
Compared to other name brands you can't beat the price.

Kevin, was it "Nike+ Fitness Short" (style # 206641)? The link isn't working for me.

Ron, you're right ... can't beat that price!

I'll pick one in a couple of days and order. I'll let you all know which ones I settled on.

I usually wear Champion brand shorts that can be bought at Kohls for fairly cheap... $10 to $20 dollars or so. They have a draw string, pockets, and I have never had them bind up.

Thanks for all the input.

Dan, I went and checked Kohls ... I had tried the local "discount supercenters" and wasn't satisfied with the options, but I had forgotten about the new Kohls here.

I was looking around and found what turned out to be a pair of Speedo swim trunks (not the thong kind, more like boardshorts) mixed in with some athletic shorts. I tried them on and they felt great.

I tested them out today with my modified "Tabata That" and had no issues with binding during the squats or the wall balls.

They are plain black, have a couple pockets (including the small 'waistband' pocket), are very loose, and have a drawstring and an internal mesh liner (the actual 'short' part is not mesh ;). They feel great, and they were $21.

I still might order a pair of 'fighting shorts' from online (dabbling in mma is part of my job description =) but these will certainly do the trick until then. Thanks again everone.

I use Adidas soccer shorts. Their newer ones that are dry-fitesqe are excellent and never bind. Don't go for the satin-type ones as they do bind.

I highly recommend Prana (w/f safe link) http://www.prana.com. They make climbing and yoga gear that is tough and comfortable. I use the Momentum and the Mojo shorts. One piece of advice is buy the Mojos one size up.
