My favorite (synthetic) girlshorts

Bought these when my final pair of hiking undies was eaten by my washing machine (opened the door to a ball of elastic, wasn't pretty). I am usually a size XS, but the S has enough stretch to stay in place no matter what I am doing - I was in a pinch and there weren't any XS available, so I made do - and I haven't had any issues with riding up or bunching. The shorts dry faster than I would have thought possible, and don't smell funky even 4 days in to a summer-weather hike (I was rinsing them out every night).

Overall, super comfortable and good looking. These shorts made me re-evaulate my dislike of the girl short style (most brands just aren't cut for athletic people) and I can safely say I will be picking up another pair soon!
