would buy these in a pinch
typically I don't like shorts...i find them unflattering since they tend to pull and make an awkward horizontal gather at my crotch because I have a slightly fuller rear. These shorts, despite being Mtn hardware, a brand that often fits opposite my body shape (looser in waist, tighter at bottom of butt cheek area), looked pretty good on me. I am 5'4" and 138 and tried on the size 8, like I usually do. I am a 6 in other brands, sometimes, and usually wear a small up top. They look way nicer in person than in the picture above. material would be nice... I would wear fishing or hiking probably...not running or biking, I don't think.
