Please note:

  1. We use Asian sizing. If you have large quads, are looking for a more comfortable fit, or are used to western sizing, consider going up a size. Size guide here
  2. Sherpas are designed with no inner liner so pair with our T8 Commandos men's running underwear for a super comfy, guaranteed chafe-free experience. Bundle and use discount code 10FOR2 for 10% off - and both come with our 30-day satisfaction guarantee!
  3. Men looking for a shorter racing short can consider the ladies version. It works surprisingly well and looks sharp too.
  4. Pull your Sherpas over your belly button - grandpa style! - then tie the drawstring tight and pull it down over your hips for minimum bounce. Inside and outside slits allow it to be tied inside or outside the waistband.  

* While colloquially known as elite mountaineer guides, Sherpas are more accurately a major ethnic group in the eastern regions of Nepal. We believe in giving back so 1% of profits from Sherpa Shorts website sales will be donated to the Himalayan Trust Nepal to support their fabulous work. HTN was established in 1960 by Sir Edmund Hillary and provides holistic community-led sustainable development in the Solukhumbu district, with a particular focus on healthcare, education and earthquake rebuilding.

Love love love

At last I may have found the perfect trail short! Lightweight, no liner and pockets for a good day out. Customer service was awesome also. This won’t be my only pair of T8s

Love the shorts, not the length

I love the Sherpa shorts, but the length is … way too long.I prefer a shorter inseam–I like the freedom of movement, especially in a long ultra. And if you’re not especially tall, this feels really long (I’m 5’9”, so not tall, but not super-short either!). I’m currently wearing the women’s version to solve this problem, which is fine, but I also wouldn’t mind some options in the mens’;.

Best running shorts I ever owned

This is the best running shorts I have ever owned. It's comfortable pairs really nice with the commando underwear. And you can fit so much stuff into the pockets. After three weeks of owning it I bought another pair of commandos as well as the Sherpa ultra shorts from their German distribution partner

Brilliant shorts - Bring back the British racing green!

I’ve had these shorts over a year now. They’ve been brilliant. The highlight for me is the storage belt, it’s super secure, with limited bounce and allows you to carry more than enough! The shorts are comfortable over a compression boxer, and dry really quickly. I wouldn’t mind the shorts being just a little longer, but my main disappointment is that the British racing green is no longer available! Please bring it back!
