I bought a pair of these and have had the opportunity to use them twice. Right out of the box I liked them because they hugged my feet. I walk a lot, usually 3 to 5 mile hikes 3 or 4 times a week and on the weekend I like to do an 8 to 10 mile walk/hike. Most of my walks are on trails that have dirt, roots, rocks and it's not uncommon for us to ford streams ( my dog is my trusty companion). I wear a 6.5 in most shoes and boots, Salomon excluded I wear a 6 in all Salomon footwear. These run true to size for me. I have another pair of Patagonia shoes, the Finn and the fit is similar. In summary I find the fit comfortable, but snug. The leather has a nice feel not too soft not too hard. They are really water resistant, until you dip your foot in water above the ankle. On the plus side, I filled them with crumpled up news paper for a couple of hours, removed it and by the morning they were almost dry just sitting inside the house. A bit on the pricey side, but the ones I returned were $20.00 more and I didn't think they fit as well for what I needed. I don't have wide feet, but if you do, I don't recommend you buy these without trying them on first.

Super nice. These are kind of short shorts as oposed to the Gamut shorts which are a little bit longer. I find these to be a little bit dressier and more feminine, which works well for around town. The also have a zippered pocket, a little bit shallow but perfect if you don't want to haul a purse and you need a safe place for a few dollars or a cell phone. The fabric is nice and soft. I wear a size 10 and they fit I think true to size. By the way true to size to me means only that I have other Arteryx pants and I wear the same size in all their styles.

I have a lot of shorts, but I keep wearing these just about everyday, that's why I have 3 pairs!! I like the zippered side pockets to keep my stuff from falling out. They are heavy duty canvas like material. The legs are a little bit baggy, but I like the overall comfort and feel. They wash and wear well and can take just about anything I throw at them. They are a very casual short. I have then in size 10 and 12. The 10 is a little bit more tailored so it tends to look a little dressier the 12's are baggier, but they suit me perfect for the woods and outdoor activities. I think they run true to size. All my other Arteryx pants are size 10 and the fit is comfortable and nice.
