i sometimes wear pants, but in the summer i like my running shorts.  they are shorter than knee length, so they don't get in my way, and they were made for running.

I was being sarcastic. I usually wear long running pants. But the mesh inside has gotten hot during the increase in wheather. So i did buy shorts. I figure i might as well try different things before i stick to somthing. if i don't like he shorts then i am going to back to long pants but make sure ther isn't any mesh on the inside.

Yeah, no mesh on the inside.  With what Demon said, I thought pants restricted you more than shorts.  They dont give your legs a full range of motion.  At least khakis, cargos, and jeans dont.  Those sport pants might.  I think I'm just gonna use shorts 'cuz I dont have any sports pants that I could wear, and its hot here so, I'll just stick with the shorts.

I usually wear the same thing that I wear to track practice, under armor shorts and some really flowy nike warm up pants.  That way I stay warm if it's cold outside, or if it's warm I can take off the pants and still be fine.  Mainly though, whenever you train just wear whatever is comfortable for you.  Just please don't go naked, that could give parkour some really bad rap if you know what I mean.  ;)

Lol, of course I wouldnt go naked.  But what you do isnt a bad idea.  I did that at track meets.  It was quite helpful.  Too bad my school cant afford longer shorts  ::)

Actually, I have a pair of black old navy khakis that are awesome, flexible, comfortable and durable. That's the perfect trifecta of pants-hood.

If you want to see them, look no farther than the Beast Coast gallery. They are strapped firmly around my supple waist with the belt of justice.

Anyway, I dislike shorts mainly because I don't wear them on a regular basis, so when I put them on for Parkour, I have to completely recalibrate myself for the flopping all around, wind on my legs, etc.

Until I buy some very breathable pants I will stick to shorts...in the summer at least....98 degree weather is hot enough on its own with shorts.....

It's always summer in San Francisco ;-)

Has it really taken us 3 pages to figure out that it's a matter of personal preference?
