ENDURA Supplex women's shorts, £32.99, www.endura.co.uk
The shorts have non-gripper hems which means no marks are left on the legs. The mid-length cut works well but the low-rise waist needed the drawcord for a snugger fit. The padding, though designed specifically for women, was not as comfortable as expected. A rear zipped pocket and discrete logo allow for everyday use.
PROS good looks , zipped pocket, waist drawcord
CONS low-rise waist, padding fairly ineffectual
