Rated 3 out of 5 by Hedgerow Not "bulletproof" Endura.
Have always rated Endura and got these for my girlfriend since she liked the look of my new pair. Hers have an additional, unnecessary and annoying velcro tab at the fly (why?) backed by a vertical seam that runs through the waist belt (again why?), creating a weak spot. That seam was poorly stitched and has failed after about 4 uses, fortunately before and not during a ride, as they're unwearable now. Ancient ALTURAS back in action until these are replaced. She's very disappointed and I feel let down. I kind of like the ever-so-slightly handmade quality of these garments, but this is poor: Potentially ideal shorts let down by these little details. If the replacements don't incorporate the quality of the men's then we'll have to look elsewhere, which is a drag.
