Product Summary

The Rhone Mako shorts are designed to handle all your workout needs. The Mako line of shorts is available in multiple inseams: 5, 7, and 9 inches. You can also purchase the shorts with or without an inner lining. The Mako shorts are all made with High Intensity Training Fabric (HITF). According to Rhone, this fabric has four-way stretch ability, retains its shape, and is quick drying. Rhone has also treated the fabric so that it is water repellent.

The shorts have two pockets. The left pocket has a zipper to keep your valuables secure. The right pocket incorporates an inner mesh media pocket. The elastic waistband has a soft jersey lining and has an interior drawcord.

Reviews on the Mako shorts are mixed. Positive reviewers absolutely love the shorts. They often return to purchase multiple pairs and share that these are their favorite workout shorts.

However, not everyone loved the shorts. Some users found the shorts to run big, and found the shorts did not fit even after measuring their waist. They also found the inner lining uncomfortable. Some buyers also did not like the pockets. They found them to be too large and disliked that they extended past the bottom of the shorts.

      The Rhone Mako shorts are an expensive but durable option for your activewear. They will either be your favorite workout shorts or an uncomfortable pair you wish you didn’t spend so much money on. Try the shorts on with the tags on so you can return them if you dislike the fit.
