Rated 3 out of 5 by Iridemybikealotanditsfun Average
I have owned a pair for two years. I have only worn them when the weather justifies it.
They have done a bit of commuting but mainly proper riding be it harder xc or all mountain/dh.
My initial and lasting observation is that the fronts are not resistant to rain. These will keep your back side drier from puddles and spray - that being their intention. If it rains, you will get wet so if you want more, buy the ones that look like bin bags.
Quality wise, as is usual with Endura, they are outwardly good but time quickly takes its toll and the waterproof membrane on the crotch has self destructed after my last ride. Now to be fair, this ride was at Anthur Stiniog which is full on DH but that actually means less sitting.
Over time all the graphics have come off and the seams in the crotch gave started to wear as well as what appears to be delamination in the crotch evidenced by a wrinkling in the fabric.
I have yet to own an Endura product that stood the test if time however, as usual, excellent fit and comfort is second to none. I do use my kit and will admit it gets a beating but as an example, I got some Dakine shorts at the same time that I wear near constantly and they are like new still.
I am left in a dilemma as I now have a requirement for more but dont know whether to get more of these because when they worked in their short life, they did properly do the job.

Great shorts. Wear them over lycra to avoid banter at work after my commute on road bike. Not too baggy, not too tight, good pockets, will resist a mild bit of drizzle. Only had a few months, but feel good quality/wear. Worth the price.

Only 4 stars for these. Stylish and keep your bits dry but after 9 months the tape is peeling off the seams and they're no longer waterproof. Still a very useable pair of shorts though (in the dry) and I will be buying another pair.

I had two pairs of these and the same thing happened twice, the front popper just fell off. These are a great fitting, comfortable pair of shorts let down by cost cutting in the vital area of the shorts. I will be avoiding Endura shorts in the future.
