Orca Core Sport Shorts (For Women)

Closeouts. In the water, the tight-knit AquaGlide fabric of Orca's Core Sport shorts repels water to keep you soaring at top speed; in the saddle, quick-drying microfleece chamois adds an extra layer of padding.

    I am in a crunch or I would return them. There is no pad for the bike part. Typically tri shorts have a little something. This is going to be brutal and I will never wear them again after.

    These shorts are good for spin class and bike rides . They are quite comfortable and a nice length. My only complaint is the leg bands are a little snug.

    Thin, and thin chamois, but good quality construction. I bought the 2XS for my daughter. She is a size 12 girls and just under a size 0 womens.

    Orca's products are always very good. Unfortunately, this pair of sport shorts has fabric that is too thin. They are comfortable and fit well, but you can see through them. If I wear a long shirt, I can get away with wearing them. I would hate to see what they would look like if they got wet from swimming or sweating a lot!

    Good quality. Ran in them the first time this morning. The thing chamois is nonchafing. Haven't worn for biking yet, but think they should be good.

    Have only worn them once, but they fit well, legs don't ride up due to plasticky edge, and they are attractive enough and of good quality.

    These didn't fit me very well. Keep in mind I'm not lean nor an athlete, so the cuffs were too tight on me. It may fit fine on someone who is skinny or lean I suppose. Regardless, I didn't like the band or cuff at the bottom of the leg opening, which fits tighter than the thigh part.

    Fit was a little big around the thighs but I kept them because they were comfortable

    After a few pairs of tri shorts, these were the least gross-fitting of the lot. I don't know any woman besides professional triathletes that don't despise the elastic leg grippers, and these have those, but they are covered in smooth fabric, making them better than the exposed elastic many shorts have. The pad is fleece and very soft, but very light, making these best for shorter distance tri's and road biking. The material the shorts are made of is very thin, to the point that I had to double check it wouldn't be see-through when wet (it's not) but I felt slightly exposed in them- this also lends them to drying very fast even while you're wearing them, so it's a blessing and a curse I suppose. I do love the color.

    I bought these for active yoga wear and they are just, don't sag, don't bind and they breathe. I'm hoping I can buy more.

    Sierra had these listed as XL/size 10. I am and will always be a solid 14. I bought them on a whim. They definitely fit me perfectly so if you are a 10, you'd need to buy smaller.
