Built-in pockets on leggings and shorts have changed my life. I am a huge advocate for pocketed shorts because they’re multifunctional and great for wearing during warmer seasons.

Here are some benefits of wearing shorts with pockets:

  • You have a place to stow your belongings and go hands-free. This makes pocket shorts great for canoeing, SUP boarding or SUP board yoga.
  • Wear pocket shorts under skirts as anti-theft gear or add pockets to ANY outfit.
  • Can be worn under dresses to prevent chafing.
  • Adds another layer of modesty and comfort when worn under a dress.
  • Great for high-impact and sweaty sports by giving your legs a lot of breathing room.

Can you see why we love them?

Below are our top picks for pocketed shorts.
