Outdoor Voices Hudson Shorts
Outdoor Voices was started by 27 year old CEO Tyler Haney. She is a runner who took a year of before college to attend Parsons at the New School in New York City where she learned all about the materials that work well for athletic wear. This became her passion. She launched her brand Outdoor Voices in 2013 with a desire to create athletic apparel according to CNBC’s Make It that has “fabric that functions across multiple activities, but looks more like the brands I wear every single day.” (This 27-year-old CEO is taking on Lululemon and Nike).
I am not someone who always wears shorts because I have found that it is hard to find a pair that fits just right. For me, shorts must be comfortable, functional, and made of moisture wicking fabrics. Another must have feature is that they must not ride up. I like to show off my legs but not my inner thigh if you know what I mean (wink, wink!). When I received the Hudson Run Shorts from Outdoor Voices I was very excited to give them a try.
The nitty gritty-Hudson Shorts from Outdoor Voices
I love these shorts!
They are so comfy. The compression waistband sits comfortably on your waist and has a hidden drawstring in case you need to tighten them a bit. The waistband is wide which makes the shorts very flattering. There is a small pocket in the waist band and also a small zipper pocket on the left hip. The length and cut of the shorts is perfect for running allowing ease of movement in your stride.
On the run these shorts stayed in place with no riding up in the waist or in the crotch area which is key. The interior liner is comfy and even works if you want to go commando. The price, $55 is reasonable as the quality of the Outdoor Voices Hudson Shorts is high. I love the range of colors. I have the pebble rose which is perfect for those spring runs and workouts. These shorts function well at CrossFit too. The 2.5 ” inseam is perfect for doing all of those squats!
Now let’s get down to specifics about the Hudson Shorts:
- Ultra lightweight short
- Compression waistband
- Built-in liner
- They come in their Classic Colors (I received the Pebble Rose) and there are also seasonal colors.
- 2.5″ Inseam
- Eco-Friendly-These shorts are made with recycled water bottles
- Breathable materials
- Sizing-I found that the sizing is very true to size.
- Small zipper pocket on left hip
I would highly recommend the Hudson Shorts from Outdoor Voices. Not only are these shorts well-fitting but they are also highly functional and they look good especially in motion on the run!
