Great shorts!

I've taken the Talus to summer parties and gotten comments on the good looks of it. In addition to being good looking shorts, they are comfortable and light. The stretchy fabric gives added comfort when in action on the hiking trail. I have even taken these shorts mountain biking (wore them over a liner with padding) and they performed well.
The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars, was because I would have liked some back pockets, it only has 4 pockets but all 4 are in the front, other than that, the Talus are awesome shorts. I like the fact that all pockets have a zipper to keep things in.

After all these years, I have not found shorts as nice as these. It's very unfortunate Mountain Hardwear no longer makes these. I actually prefer shorts without rear pockets and I believe they are a touch too long but still, by far, the best short I have even worn? they've clocked hundreds of trail miles with me!
