Erick Hengwrote a review of Arc'teryx Rampart Long Short - Men's on August 6, 2013
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
As usual, Arc'Teryx=a cut above the rest. I've had my Rampart shorts for over 3 years now and they don't look any different than when they were new. The fit is spot on and the snap closure system is great. Pockets are low profile so these don't have that lame cargo short look. The flap system is secure, and while I wouldn't trust them like zippered pockets, this does keep the weight down and increases comfort. Fabric is amazingly stretchy and even a little water repellent, plus holds up better to abrasion than you would expect. These are perfect for hiking even on long backpacking trips and move well under a harness for climbing, not to mention look great around town as well. You can catch these on sale occasionally, you will be glad you snagged at least one pair.
