This means right now is the perfect time to stock up on gear, especially if you're a runner. If there's one deal that's a can't-miss, it's on the ultra-lightweight Under Armour running shorts, which are now more than half off.

Typically $50, Under Armour’s Vanish Woven Shorts are on super-sale for as little as $18, depending on the color. They've earned over 120 five-star ratings from shoppers who use them for running, lounging, and everyday wear. While they're available in sizes small through 2XL, some are already sold out, so get yours quickly before they really do vanish.

Under Armour’s Vanish line is designed to be as lightweight as possible. These 8-inch shorts have four-way stretch for ease of movement, and the polyester fabric is moisture-wicking. The bottom of the hem features a mesh panel that keeps the shorts airy and breathable. They also come in a range of decidedly muted colors, like khaki, blue, and deep red. There are two side hand pockets, which are good for quickly stashing items, but the lack of zips means you’re unlikely to run or do vigorous training exercises with a phone in your pocket. For that, we recommend wearing a pair of Under Armour compression shorts underneath.

The Vanish shorts’ light and comfortable fabric make them great for workouts, according to shoppers, including one who said they're “very comfortable and functional for my HIIT workouts,” calling them a “great addition to my kit.” Similarly, one shopper wrote that they were “very lightweight and perfect for working out,” while another appreciated that they were “breathable and flexible.”

Shoppers appreciated the shorts enough to stock up in a variety of colors, too. “These shorts are lightweight but stand up to hard workouts," one shopper said. "They fit true to size and have a great selection of colors; this is my fourth pair and I will be buying more of them.” Another wrote, “I bought these shorts a month ago—so glad I did. I've purchased three more in almost every color.”

Others like that shorts are breathable with a versatile fit for everyday wear. “This short is my favorite, especially on days when the temperature and humidity are high," a shopper noted. "They have an excellent contour that adapts to leg movements, whether for walking, running, or exercising in a gym.”

If you need a versatile pair of workout shorts that can also be worn casually, Under Armour’s 8-inch Vanish shorts are a great everyday option, and they come in a range of stylish colors. Some sizes are already sold out, so act fast while they're still around.
