Depending on the laws regarding public decency where you live, the Patagonia Men’s Trail Chaser Running Shorts are probably about as minimalist as you want to go with on your training runs. These lightweight running shorts feature polyester fabric with Air Flow mesh panels on the side to help improve breathability and performance. A DWR treatment on the fabric helps these shorts dry quickly, as well as wick moisture away from your body. An elastic waistband and internal drawcord help make sure you always have the right fit. Front drop-in pockets give you room to store some energy gels or chews, and a rear zippered pocket is a perfect place to store a key so you can actually get back in when you get home.
