Nike Dry Challenger 5

Most Versatile Workout Shorts

Why people love it
  • Lightweight, comfortable, and useful for EVERY athletic activity
  • Soft fabric; sleek, slim, and short design
  • Excellent sweat-wicking and ventilation

No fancy frills, simple and sleek design, minimalist, comfortable, subtle style, short enough for free movement, durable, not too pricey, lightweight, sweat-wicking, and breathable.

No pockets and a bit shorter than you would expect.


Material: The shorts are made with Nike's Dri-FIT fabric, a blend of synthetic materials that is effective at wicking sweat away from the body. The material is also incredibly lightweight and soft to the touch, so say goodbye to discomfort down under!

Fit, Length, and Features: The fit is slim without being hip-hugging, and the short (5") length makes them ideal for versatile movement. Some people complain that they're TOO short, but the built-in mesh will keep everything important in place as you run, jump and play.

The side mesh panels add excellent ventilation to the shorts, and there's a built-in liner to wick away sweat. Sadly, these shorts don't come with a pocket for your keys, phone, or cards/IDs.

Quality: Nike's Dri-FIT fabric is very durable, and the shorts can stand up to months of daily use and washing without showing signs of wear. The colors may fade slightly, but there will be no fraying, balling, or threads coming loose.

Price: At $34 per pair, these are just slightly on the costlier side without being too overpriced. They offer durability, versatility, and amazing comfort, so it's definitely worth owning a pair or three.
