Best Shorts Ever

I bought my first pair of XA shorts in 2002 or 2003. They are as good today as when I bought them. I was thrilled to learn Salomon was still making them. The good stuff: Exceptionally durable. My original pair has been worn probably 300 times - training, adventure racing, mountain biking, kayaking... still without stain or tear. The elastic continues to hold, the internal compression short still compresses. I can't say enough good things. Just bought three more pairs.
The bad stuff:
Enough said!
