Rated 3 out of 5 by Colinx good quality shorts
but found them too sweaty for summer months. Better for cooler days and winter.

As everyone else has wrote these are potentially great shorts *my first pair lasted 2.5 years before wearing through the bum). I replaced them like for like and the water proofing and seaming came away after around 5 weeks- I should really have returned them. especially at 65 pound they are getting into Gore pricing range- pay the extra

Rated 1 out of 5 by BraveDave Initially great but soon fall apart
I bought these shorts on the strength of glowing reviews from several MTB magazines.
Unfortunately, like many reviewers before me, I feel I have to draw the attention of potential buyers to the lack of robustness to these shorts.
Initially I loved them; the fit, comfort, functionality and styling were all spot on for me. However after only a handfull of rides pretty much all of the seam tape to the back of the shorts started lifting/delaminating. I'm not the first reviewer to experience this problem so it does appear that the taping process used by Endura is not fit for purpose.
It's a real shame as these shorts have the potential to be great. Sadly, in their current guise, they are not up to the job. If you want value for money / shorts that will last at least a season, look elsewhere.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MudPlugger a lot of money, not very durable
look at the price tag, you would think you could get more than 15 rides. Fair enough I bike in a lot of mud and I used to bike for about 6 hours a time, the bottom wore out and burst at the stitching. The waterproofing is delaminating, the only reason these shorts are lasting me this long is because im now too fat to wear them lol.
Im sure every item in a production line wont be perfect, maybe I got a duff pair. certainly not chuffed about the price!
Has the potential to be a great product, just not satisfied with mine so wont but another

Quite nice design, comfy and fits great. But doesn't really look to last for a long time, seeing some minor fading in the fabric and a few very small rips on it already. But to be fair, I have this for over 6 months now and it's a bit overused since I ride like almost weekly and this is my goto shorts.

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.
