Odor Resistant

Polygiene® odor control permanently protects your garments from smelling like a middle school locker room. Sweat itself is odorless, but it creates the conditions that bacteria need to multiply, and some of those bacteria produce odors. Polygiene permanent odor control stops the growth of odor-causing bacteria on fabrics, so you can wear more and wash less.

Active only on the fabric surface, Polygiene permanent odor control does not interfere with perspiration or with the skin’s natural bacterial flora. Polygiene particles are more than 100 times larger than nanoparticles and therefore are too large to penetrate to the skin’s barrier. Polygiene-treated fabrics have received Medical Class 1 approval in Europe, the same class that includes bandages.

Women's Strider Shorts - 3" is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, wicking, short inseam - perfect These shorts have quickly become my go-to shorts for many miles of hiking and running this summer. They dry quickly after getting wet and are the perfect length for me. I can easily raise my legs high while hiking - no restrictions with this short inseam. I wasn't sure I'd like the waistband, but I do! I will be ordering more and cleaning out my shorts drawer to make room. I am 5'3", 120 lbs, athletic build with sizable quads and narrow hips. Size S with drawstring waist fits perfectly, as I can adjust as needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for almost any activity I love these shorts when I want to be active but also when I just want to go for a stroll. They are not ideal for biking, but the slightly longer ones probably would be!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE these shorts!! These are definitely my favorite shorts and I am SO happy that I purchased them twice (I'm tall and I think of myself as a Large so the first pair were pretty big on me so I gave them to my sister who is a little taller and bigger than me and she is thrilled with them, wore them everyday on a river trip for 7 days). I ordered myself another pair in Medium and they are perfect!! Best running, hiking short I have ever had!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs large I bought the large and they were much too big- I'm usually a size 10. Traded them in for a medium and love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would recommend Love these shorts! I bought a medium and they fit loosely but its nice that I can tie them for the perfect fit. Color and material are fantastic! The inside lining is also so great! Not too tight and doesn't cause uncomfortable rubbing like some of my other running shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome fabric I love these shorts. Although I feel they run a bit big, they are very comfortable. The fabric is lightweight but isn't sheer. I would purchase more of these in different colors!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute but ride up in the front Very cute and comfortable. Love that they have a zip pocket in the back. However they tend to ride up and fold over in the front when moving which is a bit annoying. I usually wear a size small or 4 in patagonia shorts and these fit well.
