Very Comfortable

I like these a lot, got them and the pants. Soft but not snaggy, stretchy but rugged feeling. Such a great combo! It may be ventilation overkill, but I'd like the side vents on the shorts too!


Love these shorts have a pair of brown green and charcoal. They look great. Take care of everything that I need to travel and are built to last!

Favorite pant. Fist bought them for the trail and loved them. Now I wear them at work for a few months then move them to trail hiking or working around the house. My jeans are jealous.

Comfortable-Bad belt design

Very comfortable and very light feeling (5 star). The half belt design is TERRIBLE (no stars)! If you’re going to put a belt on there, make it a full belt. Why have belt loops then. I wear a real belt, old school, so now I either have to wear a real belt over the top of that one that’s sewn in there or I have to cut it out, which is most likely what I’m gonna do. Its like having a Porsche and putting some kind of friggin water bottle sticker on it. The lower front pocket is funky, limited to what you can put in it. Back pockets with the sown on cover is a nice touch, better than velcro or a snap. However, if you have man hands, it can be a little tight. If you are only going to wear these for hiking, then as her designs, they’ll be good however, if you wanted a multi-purpose pair of shorts to wear out in town and maybe wear a decent shirt that you might tuck in, I wouldn’t do it. They are comfortable.

Love these shorts, but the sizing is off

I love the material these shorts are made of. Smooth, stretchy, tough, nice looking. And the design is thoughtful. My only issue with them is the waist sizing. I’m always a 32 waist in pants and shorts, so I ordered a 32 in these. I love everything about them, except the fact that I have to crank on the built-in belt or wear an additional belt to get them to fit right. And then they’re all bunched up around the waist, which is kind of uncomfortable and looks goofy. Unfortunately, instead of returning them, I thought they might shrink a bit when I washed them so I tried that. Nope. Oh well, guess I’ll just have to eat more ice cream and grow into them 😃. I’d recommend ordering a size down.
