    Too small

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 6
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    Regularly a size 6 in everything. Had to return because they were way too small! Btw the color is more of a very deep navy (almost black). But online they look black. I actually like the color way more in person.

    Love these shorts!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: 2
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    Very comfortable for both bouldering and sport climbing. Good stretch and don't ride up like most shorts do while climbing.

    I normally wear a size 4 but I bought these in a size 2 and they fit great, just right without being too tight or too loose.

    Great Shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    I bought these for my wife before we went on a road trip. She loves them!

    Her words - These shorts are great for travel and getting outside. They are very stretchy and comfortable. Ive worn them hiking, climbing and just for everyday wear. I would definitely recommend having a pair in your closet.

    Great but not for me

      These were great shorts, super stretchy and looked good rolled up or down. I returned them though as the fit in the hip and waist area seemed a little off for my liking. I would say they run true to size

      Very Comfortable

        I read all the reviews and was a bit unsure of these shorts. I am usually in between sizes so I ordered the larger of the two and don’t think these run small. They seemed pretty true to size. Overall, these shorts aren’t the most flattering shorts out there but they are insanely comfortable and stretchy. They have a higher waste but it’s not uncomfortably high. I think these would be awesome for any outdoor sport.

        Black Diamond shorts

          I was looking for a short to accommodate my curves and these unfortunately were not it. The length was great and the denim seemed like it could handle some serious thigh rubbing friction, but it just wasn't a very complimenting cut. I would recommend these to someone with a petite build.

          Amazing all-around short

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
          • Fit: Runs small
          • Size Bought: 10
          • Height: 5'8"
          • Weight: 150lbs

          I've been struggling to figure out BD sizing as I'm a 6 in all other brands, but I finally figured out the sizing, and I've been rewarded with the pair of perfect shorts! They're nice enough for the office, perfect for a day climbing, and you hardly notice them when they're on. I really like the mid rise, too!

          For reference, My measurements are 36-29-34, and I purchased a Medium. If you have muscular legs and a a general muscular frame, these are perfect for you.

          Wishing They Worked Out

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

          Dang it I am bummed out. These were rad in the photos, they were rad in person, they were rad on, until I had to button them up. I think they run small... I normally wear a 6 in literally everything. Free People, Lulu, Prana, Patagonia, etc. But these are tight. I thought maybe I ate too much food but remembered all I had was coffee that day... These are tight. I've got a booty and some muscular legs and these made it look like I was trying to fit into a child's pair of shorts. I could zip them up and button them up... but it did not look flattering. Nervous to size up in fear that they will be too big around the waist. But I'll continue the review if I do end up going with an 8.

          Didn't fit quite right for me.

          • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: 8

          I usually wear an 8/9 in most bottoms.

          I have a 29" (low)waist and 39" hips.

          These are a really nice fit for being active. They are a bit more high rise than I'm used to. They fit good on me everywhere but the waist. The top of the waistband sat maybe 2" below my belly button. I'm not used to wearing that high of a rise. the waist was just a tad too snug for my comfort. If I was a 28" waist, I think they would have been perfect. I didn't want to exchange them, because I wasn't sure how big the rest of the shorts would be compensated in the areas I didn't need more room.

          Also, I bought the Adriatic color and was surprised that they are more turquoise blue than they look. I tried taking a photo to reflect that, but it doesn't show the color quality as well as I had hoped. They definitely look different in person.

          Didn't fit quite right for me.
