A lightweight hiking short.

The Outdoor Research Men's Equinox Short is a classic hiking short for hitting the trail with your buddies or your dog. If it should start to drizzle on you, the DWR finish repels light rain and wind, and a gussted crotch won't hinder your movement when you scamper back to the car.

My favorite pair of shorts.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I found my first pair of Equinox Shorts in an outdoor store in Salida CO. They were immediately my favorite shorts and had to find another in a different color. Comfortable, well made with plenty of pockets make these hard to beat. I understand they have a great warranty but doubt if will be needed. I am a true waist 35 but these in 34 are a little snug in the waist but great everywhere else.

Some of the best shorts out there

  • Fit: True to size

These shorts fit great and have plenty of pocket space. I haven't had them long enough to comment on durability but so far they are great. They do fit a little baggy (6'2" 180 lbs, size 34 shorts) but will be perfect for water activities like fishing.

Hot days on a cool river

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Fly fishing can be one of the best ways to beat the heat. The equinox shorts are perfect for those long hot days exploring new water. When your in and out of the river and hiking far, you need fabric that dries well. These dry out in minutes keeping you comfortable in search of that new secret hole!

OR Equinox Shorts

The OR Equinox Shorts stand as one of the best all-around shorts I've worn. I have two pair in fact!Whether running, hiking, or biking, these quick-dry favorites are essential in the summer pack.

I own two pairs of these. They are my go to short. Light weight, adequate pockets (rear wallet could be a touch wider). Colors are vibrant but not glossy. Quick drying. After about a two years of washings the belt twists up from time to time, minor unavoidable annoyance. Otherwise, surprisingly little signs of wear.

Do the O/R Equinox shorts have a built-in mesh inner lining? If not ... does anyone make nylon shorts with inner linings like Gramicci used to?
