The New Balance Impact 5” shorts are lightweight, moisture wicking, durable and reasonably priced.
I have owned two pairs and recently just purchased my third because I love them so much. They are great for road and trail running, with plenty of pockets, and a comfortable breathable inner brief. The elastic waistband and drawstring allow for a secure fit making it easy to wear for long days on the trail.
As someone who loves technical trail running and rock scrambles, I find the slightly stretchy fabric to be perfect when you need to make some aggressive power moves. And after using these shorts for over a year, in some difficult terrain and conditions, I am really impressed with their toughness.
I would highly recommend the New Balance Impact to anyone looking for a solid pair of 5 inch running shorts.
