Pay attention to size when orderingI can't attest to long term quality (many reviews say that over time the logo wears off with washings) since I received my pair and had to immediately send back to exchange for a size smaller. I am a 34 to 36 waist depending on brand, so I got the 36 figuring that there would be some way to tighten up the waist if they were a little large, but there wasn't and they were too big. The fabric is stretchy so I would order the size waist closer to what you actually measure and if anything err on being a little snug. They are not like drawstring on your typical shorts or sweatpants...... they only tighten up so much and then you're done.

5 month Review UpdateSo I bought these 5 months ago and they quickly became I favorite workout shorts. That means that I wear them 1-2x per week and I machine wash them in a cold water cycle and air dry them every time. I have not had any issues at all with the stitching like some others have, but the logo did start peeling. That's mildly irritating, but definitely not a big factor to me. The rest of the construction is great in my opinion and has held up well for crossfit workouts and olympic weightlifting. I really like the 4-way stretch, the velcro at the waistband and the flat drawstring (as opposed to round). They are also the perfect fabric weight in my opinion, just heavy enough to feel sturdy but not too light so it doesn't feel like it will fall apart.

Good but flawedI bought 2 pairs of these shorts and have worn them probably about 4 times each. The material feels strong and flexible and so far the logos have not peeled off like others have said. The fit was exact, at least around the waistband. This is where the major problem is. The legs are a slim, which wouldn't be a problem if they had slits. The legs get rolled up during rowing (and during other movements) and the get stuck, making me look like I have a nice pair of booty shorts. I'm a 32" at 5'11, 180lbs; I'm clearly not fat, but I'm not jacked like Froning either so the shorts just need some slits. I'd buy another pair or 2 in a heart beat if Rogue fixes this. They are the best price for WOD shorts.

LOGO SOLUTIONFirst, I love these shorts! They stretch when needed but stay right with me through the toughest workouts. I am a HUGE chalk guy and have chalked hands multiple times through the rounds so these shorts take a beating. My solution for the logo peeling off...wash the shorts inside out so the logo is not exposed to rubbing on other clothes when washed or the heat of the dryer. I have had these shorts for almost 6 months and have not had the first bit of problem with the logo and I wear them once a week.

All Purpose Phenomenal ShortsI read the reviews and saw that these shorts really only had negative comments on the "Rogue" logo peeling off after the first or second wash. That was never going to be a deal breaker, so I bought one pair, size 34 (I'm 6'2" 210 lbs), as a test. I could not have been happier with these for the price. In fact, after one workout in them I purchased three more pairs in different colors. Also, I must have the "second generation" shorts with new and improved logo, because I do not see how this logo could wash/dry off the leg. Sizing seems completely accurate when compared to other manufacturer's shorts.

Great Purchase!These shorts are super comfortable and they definitely move with you during workouts/WOD's. I can no longer go back to regular mesh shorts-the rogue shorts are much lighter and more versitle in every aspect. I own 3 pairs (all different colors) and none of the labels have peeled off, as mentioned in other reviews. My only suggestion is for Rogue to simply to improve color palette/spectrum for more interesting design. Would love to see them in green.

Buyer BewareI wouldn't say these shorts are the most durable.
In all fairness, I recognize these shorts shouldn't be washed and dried on an extremely hot level. These were dried on "warm" and maybe worn a total of 7 or 8 times.
First, over time I've found it annoying to have the drawstring right in front because it bunches up underneath the shirt, but if you're crafty you can get around that. However, these shorts have velcro underneath the drawstring -- it's only a matter of time before your drawstring becomes fuzzy and frayed from repeated catching on the velcro.
Second, you can see the eyelet has come undone. Again, these weren't worn that many times.
Third, you can see the lettering is starting to peel off the shorts. These were washed inside out, so not entirely satisfied overall.
Buyer beware. Treat these shorts like they're precious and you might have them last a little bit. In the meantime, I'll continue wearing other brands which have outlasted these.

What's up with the logo?I bought one pair of red shorts and one pair of blue. The logo on the red pair started to disintegrate after two or three washes. The blue pair, on the other hand, has come through months and months of washing with no damage to the logo. I am still able to use the red pair, but they look terrible.
Aside from this issue, the shorts are fantastic in every other way. I will definitely buy them again. I just wish they looked better.
