    Good for Hiking

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    After wearing Prana Mojo shorts for some time (they feel like you are wearing nothing) I opted for these because of the zippered pockets and the ability to have an integrated belt. If you put more than a few ounces of stuff in your pockets the Prana shorts will fall down a bit.

    In the pockets I carry my camera cleaning accessories with a filter or two, and having zippers is great for piece of mind.

    However I wouldn't use these if you are going to be doing any kind of scampering, scrambling, or bumping against rocks.

    I just came back from Colorado and while on the Castle/Conundrum route I had to do a bit of very light scampering (Class 2 plus) and was definitely bumping against rocks. Unfortunately now there are a few tears on the front leg and the seat.

    So if you are going to wear them for trail hiking, go for it. They are nice. I cannot recommend these for anything more aggressive. For that much $$ I would have expected them to hold up a bit better than that.

    All of the pockets

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    These were a gift for my friend, and here's what he had to say," These shorts have all the pockets , to hold all of the things. I think they run a little large, but the integrated belt takes care of that…"

    Awesome shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'9"

    I got one word: Pockets. Arcteryx is not known for a lot of pockets on their garments. I don't know why. These have 5.

    The hand pockets could be deeper, they are quite shallow and you must always zip them up so things don't fall out like your $650 phone. I would suggest hand pockets having less of and angle - make them more horizontal therefore things won't fall out so easily and deeper.

    Fit is great, I'm 5'9" and they come just a hair above the knee and they have just enough room and aren't butt huggers.

    Good but not what I expected.

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 36"
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    I wear almost nothing except my Arcteryx Palisades Shorts or long pants. Have for y-e-a-r-s. Was excited to see zippers on all pockets & ordered these. However, discovered one had cargo pocket on only one side and both had really different shaped cargo pockets that are somewhat smaller. I can not get in them what I need to carry so I returned them. STILL wish the previous ones had zippers on all pockets like the original ones but truly love the "one of a kind" ones I still have of the originals. My long ones (probably original model) have all zippers and one of my Arcteryx Palisade shorts do also.

    Top notch

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34

    The Palisade short and pants were revised this year. I have a pair of the previous style and this is definitely an improvement all around:

    - There is now one back pocket.
    - All five pockets have zippers. The hand pockets were not zippered before.
    - The hand pockets and the new back pocket now have meshes in them. I suppose this would help slightly with ventilation.
    - The integrated belt metal buckle is new and it works much better than the old plastic one.
    - The thigh pockets are now sown with a fold in the fabric which gives them room to expand.
    - The fabric somehow feels a little smoother than before even though the label seems to indicate nothing has changed.

    In short, a highly refined, technical, hiking short. They perform excellent.
