Excellent All-Purpose Shorts!
These pair of shorts universally serve the purpose to either be worn in the gym, outside running, running errands, or just being out socially. The material feels nice, but strong and sturdy. The shorts compliment my legs very well, and it serves my main intent for purchasing them and that is for working out. They have lifelong lasting ability.

Active short - great product
These are great running and workout shorts, nicely designed, lightweight, and with pockets. There's no insert or layer for support, so they go nicely with a pair of classic briefs underneath - two cool Jockey waistbands to show off!

Nice shorts
These are nice, comfy athletic shorts. They have a lay-flat style seam running down the front which is different than I am used to, but it does the job just as well. The only thing I would change on these is to add a small Jockey logo or symbol at the bottom of one of the legs. There is no Jockey branding visible when you are wearing these (only inside the waistband) so it looks like a generic pair of shorts. It feels premium though when you are wearing it. I also wish it came in other colors, but at least black goes with pretty much anything. I am going to buy another pair soon.

My husband likes these shorts just fine. They are not quite as long on him as they appear to be on the catalog model.

They are suitable, strong and fit enough as my athletic shorts that I use for weight and cardio workouts. It's also an all-purpose pair of shorts that I can wear casually without going to the gym as well.

MIKE A on Sep 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi Mike, yes, this style does have pockets
Do you make these in colors other than black?
A shopper on May 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: That is a great question. Although we don't offer our Active Short in colors besides Black right now, I am making a note of it in our database for our merchandisers. They've been looking for consumer insights to help them in their color selection, and so we really appreciate you taking the time to contact us.
What does the back look like?
A shopper on Jul 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There are no pockets in the back. Heavy stitching that the front has from the middle of the shorts to the crouch is also on the back with one additional thick stitching line about two inches from the bottom of the belt line. I like them.
We are looking for a knit stretch type short with this longer length, what type of material?
A shopper on May 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! Our Jockey Active Short features a 100% polyester fabric content. Hope this helps!
What is the inseam?
O R on Sep 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The inseam of this item measures 9 inches.
do these shorts have a mesh liner inside similar to running shorts?
A shopper on Jun 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! This particular style does not feature an additional sport mesh lining. Hope this helps!
What is the inseam?
A shopper on Mar 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 7 inches. Not near as long as some you see in stores which is why I bought them. I'm 5'9 and they hit me right at my knees. Very comfortable and I'm very pleased with them.
What happened to the great shorts with the contrasting leg stripe (and accompanying t-shirts) you sold several years ago.They are great. I bought several sets at that time.Now I need to replenish my supply. Nylon or some kind of poly,elastic waist with drawstring, 9 inch inseam, colors in grey and black and blue; with contrasting leg stripes.
Can I order any?

A shopper on Aug 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I sure wish we could have found more people like you, who would like to purchase that particular product. It was retired due to poor sales performance, and our very last inventory was liquidated on We put our hearts into that product here at Jockey, and so we were all sad to see it go. We don't have anything quite like it, but I can understand how you feel. If you'd like to give one of our Personal Shoppers a call at 1-800-JOCKEY-1 (800-562-5391) we would be more than happy to discuss our current activewear offerings with you, and hopefully help you find a new Jockey favorite.
What is the inseam length?
A shopper on Jun 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! Our Jockey Active Short features an 9 inch inseam length. Hope this helps!
