Most women's shorts make me cringe a little. Terrible construction, tight waist, a loose baggy legs. I'm shaped like 12 year-old boy, so finding women's clothing that isn't tailored to a small waisted, large hipped woman is hard for me (though I find women shaped as such to be incredibly beautiful). I was expecting these shorts to have the usual baggy crotch where my thighs should fit, but to my surprise, they fit really well! Great stretch, and the slight water repellant is nice for when you spill water from your water bottle on yourself. I mostly use these shorts for daily use wearing, but will take them to the trails soon enough. I definitely dig these shorts and will buy another pair.
