From Cita sea.

From midsummer hikes to rugged trail runs, you like to call on the Arc'teryx Women's Cita Short.

Quality material

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Size Bought: Small

I purchased these shorts to run in, but ended up returning them. They are really flattering and a great material, but I returned them because they don't have a built-in liner. I prefer that feature because it prevents shorts from riding up while running, but if you don't care about that definitely give these a shot because they are great. Wish I could have kept them!

Lightweight and Breathable

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

These shorts are great for running or hiking. They are very lightweight, breathable and dry quickly if they get damp. The power-stretch mesh and draw cord along the waist allow for perfect fit and comfort and the interior pocket is a great place to store car keys while on a run.
