Brought Back a Winner
March 17, 2013

I am so glad that Outdoor Research has brought back their amazing Contour shorts. I have several different types of shorts but there is something special about the Contour. They are made with a remarkable cordura material, near wrinkle-proof, that stretches effortlessly, which makes them comfortable regardless of the position. Cordura has proven to be durable beyond other shorts I have worn. I also appreciate the 9 inch inseam. While some may balk at the price, the cost is well worth it because you will find yourself wearing them more than any other pair of shorts you own. For instance, the versatility of the Contour make them ideal for the trail or wearing around town.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: Cost
