Here's what others have to say...


cut wider

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

I picked these up for a friend and she found the cut to be a bit boxy and wider. For climbing these would be great but it's not the most flattering cut according to her.


great fabric & style

  • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Gave these as a gift, but fondled em before wrapping em up. Oh the fabric was incredible! I think it would wear & launder beautifully. The color was nice that you could prolly get em a bit dirty w/o looking too scruffy, when grabbing some chow after a fun day. I ordered my sister's size & she says waist bands are usually too large, this however had a very small waist band. They were returned for that sizing issue (wish they were my size).


Ferrosi short is very comfy

    This short is long enough for me as a 60+ active grandma. I don't want a short that shows too much leg but enough so I don't suffocate in a heavier material. Comfortable waist band, pockets and lifetime guarantee are a no brainer

    Go-to Hiking Shorts

    Go-to Hiking Shorts

    Keep you cool as you move, blocks wind and sun at the top! Great length - especially with tall socks = like wearing pants (no scrapes, no bug bites but more breathable!)


    Awesome Shorts!

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I love these! I'm not the biggest fan of short-shorts and prefer longer inseam shorts but nice ones are hard to come by. These are great for hiking, wearing to work (at least in my case they're appropriate for work), and wearing every day! I like the looser fit - so that was perfect for me!

    The material is great! I wish the pockets were bigger though - but that's not a fault of these in particular but all women's clothing.


    Great Shorts

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I love these shorts. They are nice and comfortable for the summer. The zip pocket on the thigh is great for keeping a CC and some Cash safe during your daily activities.

    My daughter both liked mine so much, they each bought a pair.


    favorite short!

      The Ferrosi Short from OR is my favorite: it moves with me, and has great pockets for accessing things - like the one on the leg. It is a perfect spring / summer weight too, and I love the length. These shorts are only slightly generous in sizing, with me being between an 8 and 10, I wear an 8. Better than wearing a 10!! :-)

      Outdoor Research Ferrosi Soft Shell Collection

      Searching for a do-it-all soft shell for year-round adventures? A favorite of Ambassador Athletes and Outdoor Research staffers, the stretchy, durable Ferrosi soft shell Jackets, Pants, Shorts and Hoodies cut the wind, shed light precipitation and allow excess heat to easily escape. Ferrosi apparel is ideal for dawn-to-dusk rock climbing objectives, day hikes and multi-day backpacking trips, and highly aerobic backcountry skiing and snowboarding tours.


      Sizing runs big, fits nothing like Ferrosi pant

        Love the Ferrosi fabric but the fit on the shorts is nothing like the capri or the pants. They felt almost 2 sizes too big and just overall baggy. Wish they would just make the shorts the same as the other styles.
