Way small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 40

I've been buying North Face Cargo Shorts for years, and these run way small. The inseam is very short and the material is far more 'rigid' than in past runs.

Not for me

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 38

I think I'm learning my lesson. Outdoor gear, especially shorts are often made for guys with much smaller builds than mine. Don't get me wrong, these are great looking shorts. I just wish they fit. My 38s are 36s, maybe more like 34. Most of my jeans, pants, shorts are 38 and I have to wear a belt to keep them up. I couldn't button these. I'm 40 years old and wear the same waist size I wore in high school, and in better shape than I've been in a while, just couldn't stuff myself into these.

Great in FL in August

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 38

I wore these shorts twice last week while doing Universal's Island of Adventure and Disney's Animal Kingdom. Did water rides both days and was rained on one day. Shorts dried quickly each time!

OOPS! NF changed their sizing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Size Bought: 32

Love these shorts, but had to return the last order. Turns out that TNF has apparently changed their sizing (or maybe it was just this batch?) I have four pairs already and love them. About the best shorts ever, though Kühl makes some awesome ones. I have four pair that fit fine at Med. size … but the 32's were a bit too small. The Kühl 32 fit fine. Still great shorts, but this batch, no bueno :(
