I ordered these for hiking and based on the reviews, ordered 2 sizes up from my usual size 2. They fit but snugly and I can’t imagine hiking in them sized this way. It’s a bummer because they seem like otherwise wonderful shorts!

I have not bought Arc'teryx products for some time so I had to go to the fit/size guide from Arc'teryx to figure out what size to buy. The guide was so inaccurate that I ended up buying 2 sizes larger than what I needed. I am 5'1" and weigh 120 lbs and according to their sizing guide, I needed a 10. They swam on me, the 8 did also. Size 6 fits nicely. The shorts are just the right length, the fabric is very comfortable and they really show off your figure nicely. I wish I didn't have to buy several sizes before getting the right one. I have a couple pairs in the color inertia and shorepine and black because they are such great all purpose shorts as well as running or hiking shorts.

5’5” 135lbs. I probably have slightly bigger booty and thighs than for my waste size. These are comfy but it’s a little snug from front to back. Constantly pulling them down, not sure if it’s my body type with shorts or these fitted shorts. Have not had this problem before. I got a size 4 that is what I am usually, ordering a 6. Lolite is a great color!

I bought these mainly for hiking and backpacking. I haven't actually worn them out yet, but just wanted to say they have a nice comfortable and flattering fit. I was nervous about ordering these, based on some other reviews about fit problems. I took a chance anyway, and they seem to be exactly what I was looking for. I bought the size 4, and I'm 5'5, 129 lbs for reference. I only gave 4 stars simply because I haven't actually hiked in them yet (so I can't speak to durability and function) but I fully expect they will work just fine once I get out in them.

Wish They Fit Better

I really liked these shorts but the fit was just a little off. I got my regular size, and they fit me perfectly in the waist, but the butt was a little big. It was baggy in the butt and the material sticked out like a horn. I wish that part had been a little better because I would have loved to keep them! The Theanine color is also very different in person! It is not the mustard color it looks in the photo, it is a brown short.

I usually wear an 8 in pretty much everything, had to size up to a 10 and I can still just barely button those. So I will be returning. But the material feels super comfortable.
