Great material, but for women with bigger buns this…

Rating: rated 3 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new

Summary

Great material, but for women with bigger buns this may sit too low.

Pros

  • Material is great
  • Liner is great

Cons

  • Felt too low in the back

I know they advertise the inseam with this short, but the rise in the back isn't as high as I'd prefer. I'm a 10-12 and this felt like I wanted to pull them up or they'd ride down when running. I really like the material, but for curvy women, this may not be the best fit.

Over alpine switchbacks and under redwood canopies, wherever spectacular trails lead the Striders follow. Our Strider Pro Shorts carry what you need for a full day of mountain running, thanks to four overlapping, stretchy-mesh back hip pockets (two on each side). A card-sized center-back pocket closes securely with a zipper. The pockets lie flat and won?t flap when empty, but expand generously to hold everything from energy gels to a Houdini(R) Jacket. A fast-drying 50-denier 100% polyester (50% recycled) micro dobby forms the body of these sleek running shorts, while the thigh panels use a non-chafing 100% polyester Air Flow mesh. Side splits promote airflow and a lightweight open-knit 100% polyester crepe liner (with Polygiene(R) permanent odor control) further enhances breathability. Brushed elastic lines the waistband and the sturdy drawcord?s routing allows for internal or external tying. With a reflective logo on the left hem and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to resist sweat. 5" inseam with 2" split.

The Patagonia Men's Strider 7in Shorts bring the same performance that runners admire in Patagonia's Strider collection, but this pair offers more coverage so you don't show the world all of your white thighs. A Deluge DWR treatment on the outer fabric helps repel light drizzles. Air Flow mesh panels offer the breathability you need for a sweat-free run in hotter temperatures. The polyester crepe liner prevents uncomfortable chafing, and Polygiene's permanent odor control makes sure this pair of shorts doesn't end up needing a double-bagging after your run. Stuff your keys or an energy gel in the drop-in pocket and get striding.
