I might be a member of The Oiselle Flock, but I've been wearing Oiselle (pronounced Wa-Zelle) for several years now. Oiselle is a company with a mission I believe in, and running clothes that help me believe in myself. Oiselle Wednesday is a day for reviewing my favorite running fashions and showing you the fit on a 5'7, 130 pound Mommy-body!
I had these pictures all ready to go last week, and then my post got eaten. And so I gave up and said, "no Oiselle Wednesday this week". It was a sad time in my life. I'm so excited to be back this week since this is becoming one of my favorite weekly posts to write!
This week I am modeling (hehe) the new Pockito Shorts in Opal. These are a new model of shorts to the Spring line and I was instantly drawn to them because of the color. I normally love bright colors (see my Roga collection here), but the pastel purpleish color is so beautiful. It is a very versatile color to match different tops to, as seen with my Fresh Green Scantron Tank.
As expected based on their name, the Pockito is loaded with pockets, five to be exact! Above you can see 2 mesh paneled pockets that are big enough to hold fuel, keys, ID, lipgloss, money, or a Starbucks gold card. There is also a standard internal key pocket in the attached liner, but let's be real, you don't need that one. So if you're good at math, 2 plus 1 makes 3. Let's check out the remaining 2 pockets here:
The material of the Pockito Shorts is like the Rogas, very light and airy. They are quick drying for when you work up a sweat, and they feel like you are wearing nothing! I love that I can slip them on and not think about them again. I don't ever find it necessary to pull or tug at the shorts, and I can move freely in them.
As far as fit, I went with a size 8, which is the same size I wear in the Roga Shorts. Like I mentioned in my Roga review, I prefer to size up in those shorts. I am so glad I chose the size 8, because they ended up fitting perfectly. I don't feel like I could reasonably fit in the size 6 of the Pockito like I could in the Rogas. While I do have room in the waist, the leg openings are perfect for me.
I had a question as far as the length in the Pockito Shorts, and the Oiselle website says that the size 4 has a 3.25" inseam. If you suck at measurements like I do, I can tell you that the Pockito is shorter than my regular Rogas, and longer than the Mac Rogas. I find the length to be perfect for a good speed workout when you want your legs to have plenty of room to move!
The Pockito Short is such a stylish running short. I don't have a problem spending my days in running clothes, but if you were ever looking for a running short that could be converted to a day style, the Pockito would be it. The look is very deceiving, especially in person. Now that I've had these shorts for a few weeks, I definitely find myself grabbing them often!
Oiselle has these shorts priced at $52 which is a little more than I normally spend on shorts. I did make an exception for these because I just had to have this opal color. I also feel like the pockets make the shorts very versatile for racing, and I hope to pack those pockets for a race soon!
