Great pair of shorts

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

A very comfortable short with a lot of practical pockets. It has become my go-to pair of shorts. the only issue for me is that size 38 is too loose on me, yet I am worried that the size 36 is going to be too tight. I am still debating whether or not to return for a smaller size But love these shorts!


Super Comfy!

    These are comfortable enough to wear in the water or at home on your couch! They have a mesh liner for watersports and lots of pockets for everyday use! Not to mention they look really good! :)


    Sweet, but

      I keep trying to squeeze myself into a 36" waist in all of the MK's but it just doesnt seem to work out. I am 6'3" 225# and I know that reinforced button won't pop but it feels like my gut will when I put these on. The 38" is way too big. Unfortunately, I had to send these shorts back. They would've been awesome for hiking, fishing, biking in southern WV.


      Great Shorts

        These shorts are sweet! Usually when you spill beer on your shorts riding your cruiser around town the ride is over. NOT SO with these shorts! Now you can just keep on going mourning only the loss of your beverage! The only thing I would say is to maybe size up, as the waist sizes run a bit small.


        High Waist

          Only order these if you like a high waist - it falls about 2" higher than would be desired, so if worn comfortably, the legs bind. The waist size runs slightly smaller than specified - tried four different styles from Mountain Khakis and these were a bit smaller than the others (34").

          what's the inseam length on these? I think...

          what's the inseam length on these? I think I've seen them on other sites in 9" and 11"

          Thanks for your question, is stocking the 11" inseam model of the Moutain Khakis Granite Creek short for men. I hope this is helpful for you.



            The Granite Creek Short is the Ferrari of the quick dry class. A must have staple for sure. My go to shorts when I hit the mtb trails. Due to the level of comfort, the GCS makes for a wonderful travel short as well.



              The Granite Creek short by MK could be well defined in one word, stout! These have been my go to shorts for several days spent chasing trout on local rivers. They are comfortable, quick drying, UPF rated for sun protection & use stronger than average nylon fabric to create a bomb proof pair of outdoor shorts ready for whatever you can throw at them.


              Quick Dry with out all the noise!

                This is a great short- just the right inseam length, and the nylon fabric is brushed so it has a soft feel. Signature Mountain Khaki's quality and it does not sound like you are going to wake a sleeping baby when you walk by!


                Most Comfortable light weight shorts

                  Can't say enough about these shorts. They dry in minutes, they have great zippered pockets, and they don't bind when you squat down. Perfect outdoor activity pants.
