FYI the Ron Hill Cargo Trail Shorts are now even cheaper on Rat Race at £10... but out of stock.  Drat!

Sorry to post on such an old thread but Rapid-lite shorts have mesh pockets on either sie for gels...for that 0.2% advantage.

i may have started the thread back in 2011 but the shorts (the Ron Hill Cargo Shorts) are still going strong and have done an excellent job in marathons so far! 

Always open to new suggestions though Sean though the RH's will take some beating

Ronhill now also do a racer cargo short, as well as the trail cargo short - if you like shorter style shorts

I've got a pair of the Ron Hills Johnas, the rapid lite are a real lightweight race short. I just feel 3 seconds a mile when I put them on!

Football referee shorts are worth a look if your current shorts are lacking in pocket space.

Just a little hoof for this thread to say those cargo shorts recommended by Jonas are the bees knees. Worn them at two marathons now and absolutely perfect. So good I intend to buy spares in case they re-design them.

I foresaw this issue half way through my marathon training.  I only had space for 2 gels in my one pocket (Adidas shorts).

I got used to running with a bottle (Lucozade normally, sue me!).  I taped two gels the bottom of the bottle and ripped them off when i needed them.  Works a treat!

A £5 gel belt works a treat

The Ron Hill shorts are great.
