    Great for hiking

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    These are comfortable, breathable shorts that are great for hiking. The only thing keeping from 5 stars is that the fit is slimmer than the regular Silver Ridge short, which makes the pockets tight when you put anything in them.

    Not stretchy enough

      I bought these shorts for summer climbing, thinking they might be stretchy like a pair of Prana climbing pants. They were not what I was looking for. I still gave them 3 stars because they fit comfortably and look good, but I would not recommend them for climbing.


      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 38x10
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 215lbs

      I bought three of these. That's how much I like them. Their light weight and breathable but unlike many light-weight fabrics, these pants hung normally and didn't generate static to cling to my legs. They also dry quickly. The best light-weight, normal-looking shorts I've found.

      all good

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 36 - 10
      • Height: 6'2"
      • Weight: 195lbs

      Really happy with these shorts. Nice enough to wear around town in the summer but enough tech to wear on the river fishing or hiking. They dry really quick and are light weight. They fit true to size. The lighter colored ones did get a little transparent when wet, so make sure you wear a sexy print boxer!

      Comfy and easy

        These are really lightweight shorts. I love this when Im backpacking and its super hot and I want something that is going to offer protection but also going to be really lightweight and breathable for the summer heat.


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

        I bought these shorts for my husband. They just didn't fit well. The main complaint was the rivet on the button. It rubbed funny on the waist. There was also minimal give and the pockets were not very functional. There was also that unfortunate junk hugging thing going on that many hiking shorts do.
