way to baggy
August 31, 2012

I really liked these shorts off, but not on. They fit great on the waist, but the bottom bells out and I really didn't like how it looks. I really wanted it to fit right, because other than that I love their length and look.

I'm very happy with the purchase. I am buying another pair in the other color. Quality and fit are important to me and I was pleased with both in this product.

Love the material and color but they run small. Order up one size and you'll be fine.

Perfect for Outing/Travel
September 24, 2012

It's the perfect shorts I've been looking for. Casual, outdoorish style I can wear for everyday outing as well as going hiking and traveling. Love the mid-weight fabric and the clean cut/sawing make the shorts look almost dressy while being casual. A couple of minor things I wish the shorts have are: stretchy fabric, a little shorter in length, also a little less tight around the waist. All in all it was the best casual shorts I could find in terms of quality and style.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use

Odd fit
December 19, 2013

I've had Northface shorts for 15 years and love the fit and durability. These were disappointing in their fit. I am 5' 3" and 125. I Have worn a size 6 forever, but I've gained a few pounds. These shorts are a little tight in the bottom and too loose in the waist. I don't imagine the shape of woman this fits comfortably. If I could lose the junk, I'd order a size 4. Sad.

Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Cons: Bad design, fit

Semi happy
December 18, 2012

I bought these shorts for a hiking trip to Ecuador. When I received them, The hips and waist were a great fit. I am 5'2 115 lbs. The legs were really wide. When I walked, there was too much extra material. It wouldn't be good for hiking in warm weather. I will say I would have kept them if legs weren't so baggy. The material was nice.
