    Lightweight and comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 38

    I like the drawstring style belt to cinch them up. They are very light and I find the cut comfortable. I wear them to work as well as in and out of the house. They seem durable, but time will tell. I will buy more...

    Great

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Picked these up for my husband who needed a new pair of hiking shorts. They've done well! No problems on several day hikes, overnight hikes and just out and around town. We don't put any of our hiking gear in the dryer, so maybe that helps with the wear and tear.

    First wear, these things are amazing. Comfortable, look great, multipurpose. After owning them for 2 months and using them for mostly casual wear (They did see one weekend trip and a handful of day hikes, but no hard usage by any means), the belt has ripped off on the inside and come unwound. Some of the other reviewers have mentioned returns, so maybe I'll look into that when I get some extra time.

    Comfortable Shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: M/32

    I really like these shorts. They are light weight, dry quickly and they are long in length, true to size. I like my shorts to be knee length and these are. Could be a 1/2" longer for my tastes, but happy with length.

    Comfortable Summer Hiking Shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32

    I've been wearing these non-stop (around the house and out running errands) since they arrived. These shorts are stretchy and comfortable with plenty of pockets. Wish I would have had them while in Grand Teton and Glacier earlier this summer - they would have been the perfect choice for day hikes.

    The material (nylon and spandex) seems like it would dry fast but haven't tested this yet.

    Sizing is accurate. Usually I wear a 32 or 33 and found the 32 to be perfect, though, the material stretches which probably helps the fit.

    Comfortable shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 38

    I've worn these several times now trail walking in hot, humid weather. Very comfortable and stay dry. Fit is true to size and they look great. Would have given 5 stars but for the button hole fraying slightly (which I fixed myself).

    Super Functional Versatile Short!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    These are a fantastic pair of shorts! Both super functional and very versatile at the same time!! My weekend involved a 15+ mile hike, a quick 9 holes at a local golf course, flying through the air on a zip line dropping a total of very nearly 10,000 vertical feet and a relaxing afternoon on the lake cruising and splashing around on the paddle board!!!

    What I liked about these is that the material is comfortable and light plus they are a smart enough short for the golf course with a nice polo top to not feel out of place and to top it all of incredibly quick drying after I took a spill into the lake. Opps ...

    I picked these up at 30% off as well - Bargain! Lets hope these last after going through the washing machine!! Time will tell ...

    Also not to forget, 5 total pockets as well, 1 with a zipper which is super handy meaning you can throw your keys or some cash in that one and have no stress that it's going to fall out.

    Comfy, casual

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30"

    I picked up the Current Quick Dry Shorts to wear as a casual, round-town short. The fit is nice in that it's true to size and not too baggy. They are very comfy thanks to the stretchy material. I was hesitant at first to buy them as I'm not a big fan of 'plastic' clothes, but they wear much softer than expected. I will be getting a 2nd pair so that I can keep a pair in nice shape, but still have a pair for mountain activities. They seem like they'll be very durable.

    Don't buy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    UPDATE - The folks at Backcountry replaced the shorts after a short conversation about the problem. Looking forward to a good experience with the replacement shorts.

    The waist strap separated from the internal stitching within the first week.

    Great versatile shorts

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32

    I bought these shorts for my father for Father's Day as a casual short he could use for casual wear , walking, and hiking. They were sleeker than I expected and my father will even dress them up with a button down . The fabric is soft and stretchy and quick drying which is great. Sizing is pretty true and they haven't stretched at all with wear

    Soft and Stretchy

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34

    These shorts are great. They fit nicely and I like the built in webbing belt. The shorts have just the right amount of stretch and can handle a wide variety of activities. The shorts dry quickly and the pockets can dump water fast. These will be my go to for warm summer paddling, fly fishing, climbing, and canyoneering this summer. Simple shorts with well thought out pockets and features make them stylish enough for casual use, but functional enough for any outdoor adventure.
