Patagonia Strider Shorts
Source: bought it new
Great material, but for women with bigger buns this may sit too low.
- Material is great
- Liner is great
- 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.
