Pockets Are Important
A Running Brand Just Made Your New Favorite Gym Shorts
When Scott Bailey, the man who helped found the skateboard brands KR3W and SUPRA, created Path Projects, it was because he thought running clothing could be better. Specifically, he wanted a solid pair of running shorts that worked over long distances and in extreme conditions and had the perfect layout of pockets. He built those shorts, and now Path Projects has a new pair called the Prospect that’s not only for running but gym workouts too.
Path Projects built the Prospect PX2 knowing that running shorts can be, well, short, and that that doesn’t always work at the gym. So the Prospect is longer with an eight-inch inseam and roomier too, but not so much that it gets cumbersome on a run. It’s made with a high-quality Japanese-made material called PrimeFlex that’s stretchy and breathable. Path Projects used PrimeFlex in one of its first pair of shorts, the Sykes, but the version in the Prospect is a bit heavier for the added durability required of gym activities.
And of course, there are pockets — four of them to be exact, each with a hidden zipper. There’s a pocket for keys and a pocket for a phone (it’s big enough for an iPhone XR with a case) as well as two in the common zones on the thighs for whatever else you might need while logging reps or miles.
