Situated 8,500 feet above sea level in the picturesque mountains to the west of the adventure playground of Boulder, Colorado is Magnolia Road. One of the worlds top running destinations, it is no surprise that this famed Boulder spot is a place that inspires athletes to spend as much time outdoors as possible. Should you need a pair of shorts that can go the distance in such terrain, look no further than our 2in1 Shorts.

Our semi-compressive 2in1 shorts are so called because they feature a Merino inner liner working in total harmony with a lightweight nylon outer. The interior of the shorts is crafted from Terry looped Merino wool. Ultra-stretchy and comfortably soft, the fabric is a winner as it so efficient at thermo-regulation.

The inner also supports the quads firmly, without chafing or being over constrictive. The outer short is lightweight in ventilated nylon with understated graphics. The shorts feature engineered laser-cut holes for added ventilation and a generously sized zipped pocket for stowing run essentials and smart phones.

Ultra runner and ashmei run team member David Jury is a fan: Quite simply, running 100 miles you have to have incredible support and supreme comfort without the chafing. The 2in1 shorts really performs, looking after you when you need it most.

  1. Thomas Groß

    The “2 in 1” shorts are comfortable and great looking. Perfect for at least 9 months of the year.

    I have a few piece of Ashmei kit in my collection now but the 2 in 1 shorts are my favourite. I have a pair in both navy a and black now.

    I’ll get the bad out of the way: they’re expensive. However, you get what you pay for and I’d be hard pushed to believe that running shorts get much better or that I’d ever need another pair!

    They’re comfy, lightweight, waterproof and perfectly compressive. The merino has ensured that I’m never too hot or cold despite the weather. I have worn them from training to races of 10K and marathon distance and I just forget they are there- the sign of truly great shorts!

    Personally I’d like an extra pocket but that’s not a deal breaker for me.

    Amazing job Ashmei!

  3. Michael

    I am very happy with the shorts, they are very comfortable during longer runs (perfect tight fit, fast drying, no problems with chilly wind).

  4. Gary Adamson

    By far, the most amazing running shorts I’ve had. The fit, comfort and performance are all I could wish for in running shorts. Exceptional quality, as I’ve come to enjoy from ashmei. The back pocket takes my phone perfectly, and I can run without being aware that it’s there: no jiggle or bounce! The updated inner is even more comfortable than the original: no chaffing or irritation at all, and the merino really does live up to the claims. I vaunt fault these shorts at all.

  5. Nico

    Great shorts! Would be perfect if the inner was a bit shorter and the fabric would make a bit less noise. But overall very nice fit.

  6. Tom Baker

    Great pair of shorts that you’ll forget you’ve got on, which is a good thing! Never any issues with chaffing and perfect to just jump into and head out the door. Have run in these in the middle of winter right through to the middle of summer and have always been comfortable, the power of merino. The undershorts have proven to be very durable, have been running in them for over 2 years now and they have only just started to show signs of wear, the outer still look like new! Back pocket is big enough for a phone and keys without being bulky and keeps them in the small of your back, so no unnecessary bouncing. Overall a very good short and won’t run in anything else.

  7. Andreas

    I’m 180cm, 75kg with a 92cm waist and ordered an “L” after reading the reviews: fits perfectly. Compression shorts have a good length, and I love the material (slightly rougher on the inside to wick away sweat better?), no seams and “just right” compression feeling. The outer shorts are somewhat unremarkable from a funktional perspective (couldn’t test the water-repelling so far) but make for a great look. I like the wide waist which makes for a comfortable fit. Many have commented on the great back pocked, even with pocket-in-pocket for the key). Zipper is great, too. Somehow the whole piece of kit spells “serious running” and I felt different from just slipping into a standard pair of short from a major brand (maybe this sounds goofy…). Future will tell, but I may have found the perfect “serious” running shorts for me.

    Shorts are great, trying to order a new pair on this site is a joke. Website is poor. Offer at £45 but then you cannot purchase. Might just go back to Pearl Izumi

  12. Neil Brooks

    Great looking shorts superb fit and so comfortable by far the best running shorts I’ve owned. Can highly recommend 2in1 shorts. Excellent service from ashmei, super quick delivery. Im so impressed with the quality of ashmei clothing already looking at my next purchase.

  13. Simon

    I tried several different brands of shorts , only to end up disappointed. It is pretty crucial to have comfortable shorts, whatever the weather. Go one size up from your normal shorts and just run ! I was so pleased with my Ashmei shorts i have gone back and bought 3 pairs, thats all you need to know !

  14. Andy

    Shorts look great but do come up small, am having to order the size up from normal.
