I don't review often, but I have to say, these shorts are legit. Due to my love for this product, I now own two pairs of these shorts (one of each color). I am about 5 feet 11 inches and weigh approximately 170 lbs. The mediums fit like a glove and they're extremely tough. I would say they're perfect for backpacking, swimming, biking, or whatever outside activity you choose. I was a big fan of the Prana Zion short, but due to the style change this year, these are my new go to shorts.
