    always in need of new shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    I thought these shorts were going to be a little bit more lightweight than what arrived, but still think the shorts are pretty cool. They are super cute on and will be great for hiking or camping. The shorts fit pretty well but were a little bit in the waist and small around the legs (although this is an extremely normal issue I have in pants). overall though, the fit was about where I thought it would be.

    Go Anywhere Shorts!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    These shorts are super light and comfortable. You can dress them up or down. Sizing is true to size. These are great for summer hikes in the mountains, through over a swim suit, or make a simple casual outfit. Definitely a closet essential!

    Do it all and look good while doing it.

      5’9” 145 bought a medium. So the crotch is a little baggy for my liking and the legs are justa smidge to wide but otherwise.. ❤️❤️❤️. I threw them under the needle and walla my go to shorts. Comfy, breathable, cool and they look great!

      Comfortable and stylish

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XS
      • Height: 5'6"
      • Weight: 105lbs

      These shorts are my new go-to. They are comfortable and stylish at the same time. The light, silky material makes it easy to wear in the hot summers, and the stitching and details mean that I can easily wear these anywhere from the grocery store to a casual night out paired with a cute tank top. While these aren't formal enough or long enough for going out to a fancy dinner, they're great for anything casual. :) Highly recommend these!

      Want a second pair

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      My wife said, "When you find yourself wanting to wear the same shorts every day it's a sign you might need another pair. These are a really great casual fit and I could wear them for just about any activity. Flattering and comfortable. "

      These new Backcountry shorts are my new favorite Item of clothing! the fit is amazing. I wanted them a little more baggy, but they still look cute while not being too baggy as if they were too big. I wear them on the river, on hikes, and even to work on a regular basis. Highly recommend! they fit true to size

      I absolutely love these shorts! Usually I only wear Patagonia Baggies in the summer, but now I have a new short to add to the mix. They are stretchy, have great pockets, and fit extremely well. I wear them to work in the office, out to the bars, and out on hikes!

      bought as gift

      "These are my new favorite shorts. The cut is perfect. They can easily be used for both hiking and going out at night. Super comfy, would highly recommend these. I"m 5'5" 120lbs and the size small fits."

      Most Popular Shorts In The Office!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Height: 5'4"

      Backcountry's new On The Go Shorts are easily the most popular shorts in our office! All of the ladies have been wearing them because they are so comfortable and look so great! They are a stretchy poly-spandex blend that is meant for outdoor activities, but are easily stylish enough to wear around the office or town. Most of the hiking shorts I see are not super feminine and look the same as guys shorts, but the attention to detail in these shorts like the cuffed bottom hem, subtle pleats, angled pockets, drawstring waist and the perfect sized goat logo really make these shorts look super classy.

      I found the fit to be true to size. I have pretty muscular thighs and actually had extra room there. The 3.5" inseam might be a tad short for those with long legs, but I am 5'4" with short legs and found the length to be perfect.

      I highly recommend these shorts! If you have any questions about them, feel free to reach out to me directly at amcclary@backcountry.com or 801-204-4562.

      You Want These In Your Closet

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XS
      • Height: 5'2"
      • Weight: 104lbs

      I have reviewed these before but after hiking White Pine Lake a few weeks ago which has roughly 2,600 of elevation gain AND getting caught in some rain, I am quite impressed.



      I was comfortable the whole time despite the rigorous hiking and I never once felt any awkward pinching or riding up of the shorts. When it started to rain (a decent steady drizzle) I had no outer layers with me and we were a solid hour from the car! I worried these would get soaked, but they actually repelled a good amount of the rain away. These don't have any DWR coating on them, at least to my knowledge, but you could see the water beading as it hit the material of the shorts.



      Here's a photo from our hike, and check out my previous review below!

      You Want These In Your Closet

      Light, comfy, but not the shorts for me

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs large

      These shorts are so light, you'll wonder if you forgot to put your pants on! (a big plus in my book) They have a super flattering flat front and elastic that comfortably keep them up in the back.
      My two issues were these:
      - They are short! A 3.5in inseam is just not in my comfort range.
      - The leg holes seem really wide. Now, they may not flare as much once you've washed them and worn them more, but it just didn't work for me.

      Sizing -
      I usually wear a 14, but I was right in between L and XL in these.

      Best summer shorts!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'7"
      • Weight: 140lbs

      I ordered these shorts for a trip up to Oregon and I love them. I was a little hesitant due to the price but they are so worth it. All the pockets are the perfect size to put my phone and wallet, actually useful shorts. The length is perfect and love the fit. It has the synched waist in the back but you can make them tighter or looser in the front which I love! I normally wear a size 6 in jeans and order a medium. You could wear these outdoors and then go eat in them, super versatile.

      Yaaaassss

      Wasn't 100% convinced on how flattering the pleating would be on these shorts when worn, but I'm a believer now! Really love the fit of these and the fabric is very stretchy which makes them comfortable for wearing during activities. I've only had these for a couple of weeks but I haven't been very kind to them in that time. I have really beaten them up and they have held up surprisingly well to the abuse. Also the pockets are legit and can comfortably hold an iPhone. No dinky useless pockets here

      New favorite shorts

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

      These are perfect for all situations - I've worn them hiking, out to dinner, and hanging around the house. Great fit, with a little stretch and quick-dry material for when you're getting active. Stylish enough to go straight from the trail to post-hike beers.

      Wear them all the time

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XS and S
      • Height: 5'5"
      • Weight: 110lbs

      I purchased the black shorts in an xs. I was smitten with them I wear them all the time, out to dinner, yard work, lounging around the house I have even put padded bike liners under them! So I decided to buy the blue ones. I ordered a size up, not because the originals didn't fit well but because there are days when I want a more relaxed fit. The larger size was too big and I ended up returning them.

      The summer everything short.

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'4"
      • Weight: 145lbs

      I have had these less than a week, but I just spent the whole Memorial Day weekend in them. I hiked, skied and went out with them on. They are perfect, easy to dress up or down depending on your shirt. I'm a 6, got a medium and they fit great. I appreciate that they aren't too short. I might have to get the other color too.

      Great summer shorts

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: medium
      • Height: 5'8"

      Love these shorts. They run true to size but if you have muscular thighs be aware they may be fitted in the legs. I am 10 and the Medium fits good. Great quick dry fabric.

      I've been waiting to try out a piece of the Backcountry Brands gear and the On-The-Go Shorts were easily the first on my list. Summer is basically here, and summer in Utah is hot hot hot. I was looking for a pair of shorts that were good looking/versatile but also comfortable and breathable even for casual use. A lot of women's clothes do not breathe or move well with our bodies so you often have to settle -- but not with these shorts!

      The material is great; its a polyester spandex blend so it offers stretch and movement. The waist band is designed differently than most shorts I have -- the back is this sort of ruched elastic while the front is a more static semi fitted band, that can be cinched via the draw string.

      I also love the pockets and the little folded panels on the front of the shorts -- these look good with pretty much any top and can be worn all day long! I like wearing these with a simple top tucked in and some sandals or sneakers.

      Fit: I would say these run true to size. They are a little shorter than some of my other shorts but not so short that it's NSFW.

      Favorite shorts for Summer!

      These might be my new favorite shorts for the Summer. They are so comfortable, stretchy and the length is just enough to make me feel comfortable wearing them (i.e. not too short!!). I love the drawstring front and the hem on the thigh. You can dress these shorts up or wear them for a hike! A must-have!!
