The Holy Grail of Cute Trail shorts

I was on a mad search for the perfect Trail short. Not too long, not too short. Roomy in the legs and CUTE. These are perfect. I do a lot of hiking with my son on my back and am an ex-gymnast so my legs are strong and often have the waist to leg opening dilemma to navigate. Again, these are great and with the belt cinch you can take up any slack in the waist you might have to deal with. I am 5 foot 4 and run about 120 lbs and the 4 fits perfect...if not just a little roomy. I was worried that the pocket placement might make my thighs look thick. Not so and an iphone fits perfect. I found them first at REI and tried them on, loved them and bought them on the spot. Then jumped on Backcountry.com and found them cheaper and bought them in two other colors. I've gotten tons of compliments on these shorts. My favorite color is the Wink...very in right now and fun. Also, the fabric is super light and quick drying so if I need to jump in the creek to cool off, I'm dry by the time I get back to the car. My summer uniform. Greatest short...EVER.
