Fabric: cotton only--the nylon ones are NOT comfortable
Price Paid: $30
The older Gramicci shorts are so comfortable that I have literally worn them out (almost 20 years of use). The 'new' ones are really bunched up along the waist and ride MUCH higher on the hips.
I pay to get the new ones modified, and then they will last another 20 years!!!!

Gramacci introduced the Women's Original G-Short in 1982 and we're pretty sure some of the people we climb with are still wearing theirs from that first year. Hopefully they've seen the laundromat a couple times, but climbers are a cagey bunch, so who knows. Either way, these tough threads offer all the freedom of movement and comfort you need thanks to a gusseted crotch and flexible elastic waistband. Double-stitched seams ensure that the G-Shorts won't blow out when you're mid-swing into a heel hook, and Gramacci's 'Never Lost' pockets are made deep so you won't loose anything when you need to get upside down.
Like the force of nature, Gramicci's Gravity collection has that pull that makes these garments the ones you reach for every day.
