The KUIU Training Tech Shorts are fantastic fitness shorts for active guys. Featuring a pocket to hold your phone, reflective hits and great fit.  These became my favorite training shorts of the last two months.

KUIU Training Tech Shorts Review

We have done a few reviews for KUIU over the last month and have become big fans of the company.  KUIU is a high end outdoor clothing and gear company, focused on bow hunters and adventure seeking people.  After using the Tiburon Pants (review here) and Ultra Merino 1/4 Zip (review here) I appreciated the thought process that goes into their gear.

As a fitness professional, I spend a lot of time demonstrating exercises as well as training.  Heck, our second bedroom in our home is a gym! LOL.  So, I spend a lot of time being active 🙂 Over the years I have tested many fitness shorts and have some things I look for in a good pair.

I am 6’1″ with 33″ waist.  It can be tricky finding the ideal fit in shorts, as I tend to fall between medium and large in many brands. The medium fit very well, thanks to the elasticity and good length.  I like that the shorts are 9.5″ long.  Longer shorts get in the way of my kind of training and shorter shorts are, well, short.

The sizing and fit were spot on with the KUIU Training Tech Shorts.  Not too long, not too short and just the right waist.


The most important consideration (after them fitting) is how they work.  Do they get in the way of movement? Do they feel good? Do they breathe?

The Training Tech shorts are among the best training shorts I have ever used.  There is absolutely no restriction in range of motion. I was able to do any exercise I wanted to, without hesitation. Check mark for fully functional in this regard.

The hand pockets were a nice bonus.  The media pocket was perfect for holding my iPhone in place.  I do not always carry my phone on my person, but if you need to, this pocket will keep the phone in place perfectly.

There is even a zippered rear pocket to keep your wallet secured.  This pocket and the media pocket is great for gym going fitness enthusiasts.


Finally, we have the aesthetics.  These are very good looking shorts, and they look damn good on as well.  The reflective hits are a great feature for dawn, dusk and night use.  There shorts come in three colors (not just black!) thank goodness 🙂

At $59, these are very good training shorts.  I have used them extensively the last several weeks and looks forward to using them for a long time to come.

Bottom line – you do not have to be a hunter to appreciate the KUIU clothing.  They put great thought into their kit and it shows.
