Just what I was looking for!
August 20, 2012

We like to hike and these shorts are perfect. The material is light weight and the elastic waist band and belt keep them right at the waist even with a full backpack on. The sizing chart was right on with choosing the correct size. Definitely like the cargo pockets, only wish the back pocket flap lifted straight up. It also seems like a lot of hiking shorts similar to these have a mesh lining, whereas these ones don't, which is another great feature. Overall great shorts for the price.

Pros: Great value, great fit

Missed Fit
July 11, 2013

It's not listed anywhere in the reviews or this site, but these shorts are "relaxed fit" according to the label on the shorts. That means there's lot of extra material all the way around for men with extra pounds all the way around. I am between sizes, 35" waist. A 34 relaxed would fit better than the 36 I bought. Had I known that these were relaxed fit I would have purchased the correct size. It's just an inconveniece. The material feels nice and there are lots of pockets. I like the elastuc waist. Too much belt.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Cons: relaxed fit

Colorfast and wrinkle resistant Fit is right on the size. Very good moisture management. Supplied belt can be replaced with wider one. Wish back pocket was on the left, not on the right.
