|a little longer than the speed short|
Fabric: The Roga is a little lighter and feels a little more "naked" than the classic Speed Short. I know lululemon has come out with a lighter version of the short this year - but I don't have those. So for the pairs of speed shorts I have vs the Roga? Point - Roga
Pockets: The Lulu shorts have a zip pocket on the back waistband and the newer ones have 2 small pockets within the waistband that are very accessible(yeah, I have some old ones without the new pockets). The Roga has a back zipper pocket on the bum and then a small pocket sort of in the liner, sort of not, that isn't easily accessible but that works well for a key.
While the back pocket on the Roga is bigger, I really like the front waistband pockets in the Speed Short and find that I miss it. Point - Speed Short.
Price/Convenience: The Speed Short is $54 CDN before tax, I can walk 10 minutes to buy them or I can get them online with free shipping. Total: $62.05 CDN (with either minimal shipping time or I get them right away from the store).
The Roga is $44 USD and the only option is to buy them online. Shipping is $13.95 USD and takes about a week. Total: $58.72 CDN (depending on the exchange rate)
Despite the fact that it takes a little longer, it isn't like it is that hard to wait for a pair of shorts in the mail. Point - Roga
I never thought I'd say it - but move over Speed Short - there's a new favourite in my closet - the Roga.
