Arch Rock Short

Marmot made the Men's Arch Rock Short with technical performance capability for hikers and climbers. Its fabric resists abrasion, stretches for mobility, wicks moisture, and dries quickly for comfort. The Arch Rock also has a DWR coating to repel raindrops and spring showers. Marmot also added an inseam gusset for enhanced movement, a DriClime waistband with extra moisture management, and a zippered side pocket for your phone.

  • Performance-oriented short for climbing and hiking
  • Abrasion-resistant fabric has some stretch and a DWR treatment
  • Fabric also wicks moisture and dries quickly
  • Gusseted construction ensures freedom of movement
  • Zippered side pocket secures phones or topo maps

So far I like the fit and feel of these shorts. I wish at least one of the back pockets had a zipper closure. I’ve worn these overseas and am always concerned about wallet security while walking around and find that although the one lower front thigh pocket does zip it’s a bit uncomfortable to carry the wallet in that pocket. Marmot, please include zippers on back pockets!

These have wider legs than most shorts I have purchased. The waist fit and I liked everything else about them. I returned them because of the wider legs.

Just the Shorts I was looking for

True to size

I was trying to find a pair of pants that had a bit of stretch to them and were fairly clean looking pants. No bulky pockets. These pants are great! I can see them being great for Hiking, Climbing and yoga.

Fantastic

Comfortable. They are a good length and dry quickly. I like them immensely. These are my second pair. Run slightly large, but I'd still order my regular size. I typically wear a 36 and I'd say these are more like a 36.5.

What was wanted

The shorts are very comfortable and lightweight. They hold their shape when washed. I would buy them again

Great Short but runs slightly big

Familiarity:

A very comfortable short with nice pockets and longer length. Wasit runs roomy in these shorts. I have used them for hiking and recreational bike riding with the kids and they have worn very well.

Great shorts, one size too large

Familiarity:
I've used it several times
Fit:
Runs large

Whelp, I picked up these because I love the pants so much. I wear a size 34 in these pants, good room for the package and my rugbee thighs with just a little give. I need a belt or by hour two these fall of my butt. That's the pants. I wear a size 32 in these shorts and do not need a belt, they stay on my bum but give heaps of room for my thighs and package, also they cut off right at my knee. Just perfect, also the hydrophobic ability is simply put. Nifty. Great for hiking and biking If you're like me and wear a 34 in these pants, get the 32 in shorts. Cheers

Love the zippered cargo pocket, stretchy material, and 10 inch length of these shorts. Fit in the waist is slightly big. I wear 32 waist in nearly everything and these shorts fit slightly big. These shorts fit slightly below the waist (i.e., low rise) and are not baggy. I also have the pants version of these shorts and they are more "modern" in their fit (below the waist, not baggy but not tight either). Stretchy material light but tough and great for moving around (i.e., rock climbing/bouldering). Haven't tested these shorts bushwacking in the backcountry (therefore only 4 starts).

Used for a 31 day bike tour from Seattle to San Diego. Literally wore the same shorts for all 31 days (1700 miles). The shorts are baggy which allows for good air circulation--a definite bonus when it comes to moisture management. They are also quite abrasion resistant. Withstood continuous rubbing against my seat and showed few signs of wear. They are extremely fast drying. I could quickly wash and dry them at a local laundromat (or sink) without sacrificing any mileage or time. They dried in under 10 minutes on medium heat or 20 minutes in direct sun using a makeshift clothesline. The best part is they didn't acquire too much of an odor in between washings , which occurred just about every 3-4 days. Purchased a second pair on principle. They also pair nice with a polo and sandals for a night out.

Great shorts

I love these shorts. I have 3 pairs now. They are the perfect weight, perfect length and a real soft feeling material. I wish the side pocket was on both sides. The gusset really works in these shorts and makes them easy to wear no matter what I'm into for the day.

These shorts were my introduction to the Marmot brand, and are now my go-to shorts for casual wear. Like others mentioned, they are more of a loose fit, and not "athletic" like my Arc' Perimeter shorts - I always need a belt to keep these in place. The micro fleece-lined waistband is a nice touch, and the material itself is very comfortable & fast-drying. I've had no issues with the button - which doesn't see a lot of stress given the loose fit. I have the cinder, slate grey, and desert khaki colors - the latter of which is actually a very light brown, and not the reddish-brown that appears on my monitor. The other two are more true to color. The only minor complaint I have about the shorts - that didn't keep me from buying additional pairs obviously - is that the zippered pocket is on the right side; personally, I would rather have it on the left.

I love Marmot stuff usually. I put these on at the trailhead in the Bugaboos, went to the privy, and the damn button pops off. Back in the car for the short... my trust Under Armour running shorts got me up to the Cain Hut. Sending these back.

Like a lot of other customers these run big. I ordered a 34 and I am closer to a 35 and these are too big. They do not come in odd sizes to drop down to a 33. Love the model and fabric just too big and baggy especially since there is more slim fits out there now. Steve

Great soft feel poly, not too long on the legs, though size 34" runs large compared to other shorts I've purchased.
