DUER-ing our Thing in Summer Ready Bottoms

We have partnered with DUER for almost 6 years now. They really make quality and multifunctional gear that fits in great here in the PNW. Now that summer is here we tried out the Weightless Poplin AC Short.

The Lightweight Track Shorts are not really a true running short and, even with “Track” in the name, it’s probably more in line with a plyometric workout or as casual wear. Multifunctionality is the name of the game and they do a great job at that

The material is super lightweight (hence the name) and looks great. It is a flattering fit with an elastic waistband and scooped sides that fit tightly against the skin. I have been dressing this item both up, and down, to comfortable and successful results.  Recommended from me!

As with all DUER items we have tried, the fit in both the pants and the shorts are pretty top-notch. In all the pieces we have reviewed, they all fit the same – no crazy sizing issues from piece to piece. Many companies try to find the sweet spot, and I truly believe DUER truly nails it.

These items, and all their other gear, can be purchased online and at some stores in the PNW, including Portland, Sandy, Eugene, Newport, Bend, Ashland, and Hood River.

More about DUER:

DUER started in 2013 when an entrepreneur wanted to bridge the gap between fashion and functional clothing. With 25 years making jeans for big names like Levi Strauss and a new love of cycling, Gary Lenett saw an opportunity for purposeful fashion that didn’t exist on the market. He partnered with Abid Hafeez, a performance fabric expert with over 25 years of experience with technical brands, and DUER was born.

Since then, our clothes can be found on the likes of professional athletes, commuters, and every adventurer in-between.


Thank you to DUER for providing us with a sample pair. Please read our transparency page for info on how we do our reviews.

About Author

We started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. We also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support local race organizers.
