The outer short also works as part of On’s modular system. The same attachment points that anchor the inner short also work with other On pieces, like the men's Tights Long.
However you choose to wear them, the Hybrid Short has plenty of pockets. The outer layer has a drop-in pocket at each hip and a zippered pocket in the back, and the inner liner sports a snug pocket on each thigh to hold a phone or cards without bouncing.
“These shorts do everything,” says a Fleet Feet reviewer. “On dialed in the fit of both the outer short and inner layer, and there’s plenty of storage space so you don’t have to leave your phone at home.”
