Why We Built The Chitto Trail Short

We built the Chitto for every trail on your horizon, with stretchiness and complete freedom of movement for hiking or running. We like to stay fresh from trailhead to trailgating, so we also integrated water-resistant treatment to keep you dry if you get caught in some light showers, and odor control treatment if you're powering through a full weekend in these shorts.

The fabric is listed as being nylon + spandex. This is true for the shell of the shorts, but there is a polyester liner on the inside which ruins it for me. The description doesn't say anything about polyester anywhere. Nylon is great for the trail because it doesn't smell. Polyester is terrible and smells bad after wearing/sweating for just a short time. Would not recommend on account of the polyester and the fact that it's not listed anywhere. Now unfortunately I have to pay to ship the shorts back even though I would have never ordered them if I knew the liner was polyester.

Hey Kaleb! I'm sorry to hear these shorts didn't work for you. I would love the opportunity to help remedy this situation. I am going to follow-up with an email shortly to see if there is anything I can do to help!

These are solid shorts and I like the orange color. That said, personally, I miss the bigger pockets that are on my other trail running shorts and the liner is so tight and uncomfortable that I might cut it out. The back pocket is big enough for a few keys and that's it. I think these shorts assume you are taking a vest for your nutrition and gear on runs that require it.

This short is extremely comfortable and flexible. i weigh 165 and am 5'7" and the medium size is perfect. fabric dries quickly and seems like it will take anything I can throw at it.

These are awesome, lightweight, breathable shorts great for hiking or running! They are pretty short at 5in, but that keeps them out of the way! (plus you get a sweet tan line) They have a comfortable inner liner, and a small pocket perfect for keys or a snack. I plan on adding these to my rotation for summer active shorts! I would recommend these to anyone looking for a great basic short for warm weather, outdoors activities!

Can the pocket fit your phone?

Hey Eric, great question! I cannot fit my Google Pixel 4XL (Height: 6.31” | 160.4 mm Width: 2.96” | 75.1 mm) inside the pocket. I don't think most smartphones would fit in it. The pocket DOES fit car keys, a debit card, and a small snack!

Do these shorts have pockets on the sides?

Hey Anthony, These do not have hand pockets, they only have a rear zippered pocket.
