Great shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

My go to shorts for just about everything outdoors. I already had a pair of these and was looking for more and found them here. These are a great length (6" inseam ). You also get 2 front pockets that lay flat, 2 back pockets and a zippered lower leg front pocket to stash a credit card or cash or whatever ! Fabric is perfect weight as it is not too thick or too thin; it has some body to it. Feels like cotton, but is cotton, nylon and a little Lycra. Great combo! As far as size, I am usually a 6, but I buy size 8 in these and they are perfect. Will buy them as long as they make them!

Sizing is off, No Stretch

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

We purchased these shorts for our crew that traveled with the 2013 Tour of Utah, all the ladies wore these shorts, and the overall problems were that they are too tight in our normal sizes, and then the next size up is too big. So the sizing is off. The length was perfect and I still wear them because I love the length, but the fabric used was not stretchy at all, so for a short you want to be able to hike and even bike in, its just not that great. simple fixes could save this piece.

Strange fit

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

I returned them because the fit was too tight for the size. The length seemed good but it runs very small for the sizing.

Great Shorts

Shorts fit well and wash up nicely. Size...I think they are the "real" size - meaning BEFORE sizes were made bigger to make you think you were smaller. So they are true to size. I love the length and the extra pocket on the leg. They're comfortable in warmer weather, too. These are a keeper and I'm happy I bought 2 pair!

Nice fabric, needed petite sizes

I was looking for hiking shorts for a trip to Costa Rica and to use in my usual stomping grounds of Utah and Colorado. Loved the 2-day shipping from Backcountry. I'm 5'4" and 118: the size 4 was uncomfortably snug and the size 6 too big. I can usually wear a 6 petite and, if not available, a regular 4. But in this particular style short, a 6 petite would have been great, but I didn't see these shorts in petite sizes. The fabric was cotton-like with stretch. They seemed sturdy, but light at the same time and had bunches of cool pockets. Nice colors, too. (I liked the charcoal, black and even the brighter splash color) The waist fit well on these shorts without any gapping. Besides needing petite sizing in this short, I thought the short was cut a little "square"-- but mostly my body type can't handle square cut because I have shorter legs. Besides needing petite sizing, everything else about these shorts is fantastic.
