This offering is for new Mt. Borah Summit ATB shorts in a women's small. These black shorts appear to be very good quality with a 100% nylon outer shell and a blended (93% polyester and 7% lycra) liner that also includes a padded center and elastic leg openings.
We've also taken a close-up picture of the tag that provides the Borah "copy" concerning the primary feature of these shorts. As a convenience, we have included these bullet points below....
There is another tag that elaborates on the Mt. Borah branding as follows...
"Mt. Borah creates functional yet casual clothing aimed at making your outdoor experience more comfortable. We use nothing but quality fabrics designed specifically for extended use in any conditions. Our designs are thoroughly tested and reviewed, as quality, comfort and function are our goals. You will find that our products delight your senses, protect you from the elements and are there for you when you need them most. Whether you thrive in mountainous jungles or prefer jaunts in the countryside, we're sure you'll enjoy being there in your Borah designs."
Additionally, and in an attempt to assist with proper fit, we took the following measurements...
Outseam (overall length): 16.5" (inches)
Inseam: 6.5" (inches)
Waist (relaxed): 21" (inches)
Waist (stretched, but not to the max...see note below): 26" (inches)
Additional note: The relaxed waist measurement is as suggested...with the garment laid flat on the table and the measurement taken without any expansion of the elastic waste. On the other hand, the stretched measurement is the result of expanding the waste by a reasonable amount to better understand it's elasticity. It's also worth noting we are able to gain additional inches by stretching the elastic waste further, but at some point we believe the additional "stretch" becomes uncomfortable to wear. In other words, the "stretched" measurement noted above is one that is easily attained with little effort...so it's our best guess that any waste measurement in the range noted above would be a comfortable fit. I would also venture that our stretched measurement may be a bit conservative in that these shorts may still comfortably fit around a slightly larger waist, but anything more than a few inches and we would think a larger size might be more comfortable.
We realize some of the above copy from the tags is marketing, but we still thought some of the information might be useful to potential customers viewing this listing. Along these lines, the only specific comment we have regarding the above copy is to make sure each potential customer understands the nature of the lining in these shorts. This is not a brief-style liner, but more like a bicycle short-style liner with a padded center section. We further attempt to illustrate this fact with the last couple of pictures noted to the left...where we pull out the liner and hang the shorts by the elastic leg openings (so that folks may get a better sense of the liner and it's overall length relative to the outer shell of these shorts). We hope this is helpful, as we understand the difficulty in buying technical apparel online.
In terms of condition, these are new shorts and I see very little in the way of dirt marks, fabric blemishes or stitching imperfections...so a first quality offering in our opinion. Although, if we are mistaken, then please do not hesitate to return the shorts for a refund, as we really do want satisfied customer.

Note to international customers regarding shipping...
We apologize to those that feel some of our international shipping charges are too high. We only charge actual shipping rates, but once an order exceeds a certain amount, we hesitate to use the least expensive US Postal Services First Class International service. We feel this way, because this service is not trackable or insurable...so more risk of loss. We prefer the US Postal Services Priority Mail International service for more expensive orders, because this service is trackable at USPS.com and insurable...so less risk of loss. Unfortunately, this service is more expensive, especially for smaller/lighter packages, relative to the First Class International service. We are sorry about these higher shipping costs, but hopefully our notes help to explain why this is the case.
Note to international customers regarding customs...
We also apologize to those that feel their country import taxes, duties and brokerage fees are excessive. As a small US business, we are required by customs' laws to declare each order as a retail sale. Additionally, the declared order value must be equal to total store purchases and/or winning auction bids (less any shipping costs, as these are not considered in the declared value). As a result, each customer will be responsible for paying his/her own country taxes, duties and brokerage fees, which will be collected upon delivery. Again, we apologize for these additional costs, but we cannot afford the penalties and fines that come with breaking customs' laws...so we have to strictly abide by them.
