When compared to other hiking shorts, you'll quickly realize there is no comparison.
Hammer out a long hike in Moab or a scramble through the scree fields of Maine and you'll be happy you're wearing the Mountain Hardwear Men's Rifugio Trek Short. Tough, slightly stretchy material helps these shorts last through seasons of abuse while offering all the flexibility you need mile after mile. Softshell fabric breathes and dries quick (chumping cotton), and with fit features like a conical waist to keep these shorts from slipping down, how can you ignore the Rifugio?
- Abrasion-resistant, air permeable, lightweight fabric was made to keep you comfortable through long hikes
- Micro-Chamois liner with seamless construction eliminates chafing
- Integrated webbing belt with buckle closure offers easy fit adjustment

Great light weight short, excellent for any outdoor adventure. Zip pockets ensure things will not fall out. built in belt allows for easy adjustment.
Very Good Short. Weird Belt.
This short is a simple and nice technical piece that breathes very well for hiking and exertion, dries quickly, and allows a good range of motion. The material is moderately stretchy and comfortable. The two simple, zippered side pockets work smoothly and are mesh lined I haven't popped the front snap moving around, but expect to some day with the snap not secured under the belt. I liked the fit, feel and stretch of the short and decided to keep them and have been enjoying them even with the weird belt. The offset, I guess, allows a front hook waist harness or lower pack belt buckle to not be doubled but honestly this has never really been a problem in the past for me with a conventional front hook belt.
nice shorts with a good fit for skinny legged people. the fabric has enough stretch for climbing and the fitted legs work well under a harness.
only wish backcountry carried all sizes, MH make these in 1in waist increments. i just tried them on and would like to go up to a sz 31.
