Long lived shorts
July 05, 2012

I've been wearing these for a good couple of years. Plenty of physical work and a whole lot of sun. These shorts are classic, durable and look good. Think outdoors working man with a tan. Only beef is, they tend to fade in the sun.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance

Great shorts!
June 05, 2011

This is my first pair of Mountain Khaki shorts. The fit for me is a little large, but these are great shorts. I love the length and the number of pockets.

Pros: Build quality, Performance

Good to Great
July 06, 2009

Ordered size 33 - shipping was fast and shorts arrived in new condition. Very heavy but soft material. Waist is true to size and rise is medium. Overall a pretty snug fit. If you are in between sizes, go higher. 4.5 out of 5.

Great Shorts
August 13, 2012

Just got these shorts recently. Love the feel and durability of them. Style is great too. I love that MK makes all their stuff with gusseted crotches for active lifestyles. I usually wear a 34 but i ordered the 35 waist and am very happy with how they fit. 7 inch inseam is perfect also. Thanks MK and Altrec...great stuff

the best ever
September 30, 2010

By far the most versatile pair of shorts I own! I can wear these to work, when I'm out with friends, and especially when I'm working on projects around the house. Extremely comfortable, and I have no doubt they will last for a long, long time. Thanks Mountain Khakis!

Pros: Lasts forever, Performance, Great value

Great shorts!
May 05, 2010

I think the Alpines shorts are terrific. Rugged. comfortable. Nice length. Good fit!!


I dig these shorts!
May 22, 2010

They are perfect fall and spring shorts. You have to be a dedicated wearer for summer in South Carolina though. The length is just right, and the extra pocket in the rear is ideal for a smart phone.

Great product, comfortable, sturdy, stylish, great fit.

These shorts only get better with age, they quickly became my favorites, great for the outdoors but not out of place at the Flatbranch Brewery for a "nice casual" get together.

Awesome Short
March 27, 2011

I do wear a size larger in these shorts. I would recommend the patagonia mesh belt to go with these. If you like having pockets you'll dig on these shorts.

Very well made from heavy material, big pockets and they look good. Mine ran true to size and have held up very well over time. I would recommend these to a friend.

Iron shorts

There is no other pair of shorts that are better than MK shorts. Especially this Alpine Utility Pants might last for ages and do all the works for outdoor activities, daily choires, weekend events and you name it. They look also cool. So you don't feel bad even when you have to hang around with your love one. The size is true for your size. Inseam 11 looks much better. I recommend this size configuration.

Rugged Shorts
October 04, 2011

These shorts are just like the Mountain Khaki pants, just shorter (duh). Lots of pockets and very durable material. They are not meant for hot (above 90 F) weather because the material is quite thick. They are great for hiking, yard work, or around town. I liked them so much I have three pairs. I wear a 34"x34" in Mountain Khaki pants and the short fit exactly the same for me. I am 6'1" and 190. I wear a 34" waist in all my pants and these were no different. Highly recommend.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance

Great shorts & great fit
June 06, 2010

I purchased my first pair a few weeks ago, and I've already ordered another pair. Great for outdoors or casual wear with a polo.
