telebananaswrote a review of iXS Sever 6.1 Short - Women's on May 11, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The fit is great!!! (I'm 5'6" & 120#, with a waist + hips and thighs that can pedal a body uphill.) The Severs fit excellent. Baggy but not a bag, nice soft stretchy fabric. And coverage over the knee! No more gappy abyss + odd tan lines between my knee pro and short. They're made from recycled stuffs to boot!!! IXS also nails the details. Pockets are large and well placed and the zippers are high quality waterproof zips. Nice soft fabric strip around waist keeps things from chafing. I didn't know when I bought these, but the inner thighs of the shorts are actually a meshy material which is pretty subtle. Thus the shorts dump heat when one must rage uphill. They remained comfortable during recent 90+ degree desert rides. I've tried a lot of different MTB shorts by a lot of different brands, and these are far and away my faves!! Backcountry, please stock the new colors for this year!!
