Brooks Gear Review

How do you say de-groovy, how do you say de-gorgeous...

Can't help thinking of the 90's group Dee Lite while wearing and writing about my summer Brooks gear:).  Functional and stylish, the Women's Versatile 3.5" Low Rise Woven short and Women's D'lite Mesh Skort Flower Check are a great addition to my summer running wardrobe.

Brooks Versatile 3.5" Low Rise Woven Short and D'lite Mesh Skort
The Versatile 3.5" Low Rise Woven Short is comfortable and lightweight. Inspired by the Versatile Short, the outer pockets with contrast piping give the shorts a fresh look.  The flattering semi-fitted, low-riders have a 3 1/2" inseam which allow for unrestricted movement.  They do run a bit smaller/snugger than the other Brooks running shorts I own.

The vibrant D’lite Mesh Skort is made from a combination of soft ultra-lightweight meshes.   It's semi-fitted with a wide comfort waistband and 12" outseam.  The inner short has a 3 1/2 " inseam and silicone gripper at the internal leg opening to prevent riding up.  A hidden pocket with velcro closure is the ideal size to stash small items like a chomp or key.

Brooks D'lite Mesh Skort and Pure Cadence
Both the shorts and skort are super cute and especially comfortable for hot weather running.  They pair perfectly with the D'Lite Micro Mesh Racerback:)  Brooks makes quality, comfortable and stylish running gear, backed by their True Blue Guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied, return them within 30 days, no questions asked.

  1. Groove is in the heart....

    Look great on you!

  2. Both are super cute. Love the colors. Can you also tell me about the vest you're wearing? I have a runner friend who might be interested in that. What brand is it and what features does it have?

    1. It's a Camelbak Ultra LR Vest - love the waist belt design feature of this pack - if you want to read my whole review:

  3. I have that skirt and love it! I love the mesh--makes it so nice in summer. I got complements every time I wore it!

  4. The versatile low rise shorts look so comfortable! I think I need those. Actually, yes, I do.

  5. that is some cute gear! I have been looking at it online, does the shorts underneath the skirt have grippies so they don't ride up?

    1. Yes - grippy silicone that prevent the shorts from riding up!
