Crags and cities.
The Arc'teryx Women's Parapet Long Short combines technical pedigree with casual urban style for a short you can wear to the crag, on the trail, or around town. Its performance-oriented fabrication stretches for mountain-worthy mobility, breathes for warm weather, and dries quickly after sweaty ascents. Alternatively, the Parapet's time fit maintains a sleek style tat you'll want to wear around town, and a gusseted construction assures freedom of movement at the crag.

GREAT SHORTS. Was originally hoping to replace my 6 pairs of Arcteryx "Rampart" shorts I've been happily wearing for 10yrs, but are starting to look worn. They were discontinued, so I reluctantly ordered the Parapets instead and am very relieved to find I like these almost as well. They're flattering, super-light, easy-care, and trim yet comfortable....Which is essential for me.
12 was too big at waist so I filled out the online exchange request for a smaller size. Backcountry's rep called me immediately and also e-mailed saying she'd send a pre-paid return shipping label. Now that's fabulous service! YAY!
