These shorts are pretty cool
I do like these shorts, but I wouldn't buy another pair. I like the color, the pockets, the detailed stitching, and the adjustable waist Velcro. However I think on the waist Velcro to give a little tighter more snug fit could have been better designed.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Good durable short. Comes to right above the knee, but does not strict movement. Not a fan of the Velcro closure would rather have a botton closure. Comfortable short for hiking, biking or street wear. Seems to run true to size.

3 days trekking, 2 days wakeboarding, 1 pair of shorts
I took these shorts with me on a recent summer trip to Switzerland, where we did 3 long days of strenuous hut-to-hut trekking in the Swiss Alps and 2 days boating and wakeboarding on Lake Geneva, they performed extremely well. I got them in the blue, which is a very vivid color, and you definitely will be seen on the trails. These shorts have decent rise, a bit lower than the belly button. Length is excellent for hiking, they hit just around the knee. Despite the length, they don't restrict the leg-raising motion when going uphill - they never bothered me on the hikes and the Swiss Alps is very steep. The flex 1 soft shell fabric is not too hot for summer use, but is very tough - I sat on rocks numerous times and the shorts still look new. They also dry very quickly, which is handy on the Lake. The fabric isn't stretchy, so you would want them to fit a bit relaxed. Norrona sizing is not typical European, so which means that you order your usual American sizes and don't size up.
