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.

Absolutely love these shorts - I used them for 5 of the 5 trails I ran when completing the 5in5 challenge this month

Love the colour and the pockets are ideal - I used them in conjunction with a waist band for the 5 trails and they worked perfectly from start to the finish - even felt secure as I lost weight through the run - highly recommended

Great for the most part

Good things are they do hold up to zero chaffing, very light and breathable, inexpensive, and solid option for long, hot runs. Where I see room for improvement is the belt system. It’s a bit awkward to have a soft flask with water. In the front it makes it weird especially if you have to use the bathroom. Limited bounce though which is good. I wish the back center pocket could hold a soft flask or was bigger. I wish the products were available on mainstream websites without having to wait for shipping from Hong Kong. More stock on hand to avoid buying them in colors I don’t want. Also, they run a smidge snug. Overall though I love them. They would have saved me in a 100k race I ran before owning the shorts where I chafed to f-ing bad I could barely walk. These would have been a game changer. None of my negatives are deal breakers for me, I love the shorts.

Great Product

Very light stretchy material that feels great when your running. The pockets on the side are also very handy when you go on longer runs.
