Why We Like The Dynama 4in Short

The Dynama 4in Short keeps us light and cool while projecting problems on desert boulders and while pushing to tick off the next summit on our summer peak list. Meeting up with friends right after stepping off trail is no problem with the anti-stink fabric keeping us smelling fresh.

Great, Except the Pockets Are Bad

These are super comfortable and don’t restrict my movement. They’re also nicely lightweight for Texas summers. The one drawback is a big one: I don’t like the pockets at all. Things regularly fall out of my pockets when I’m just wearing them around the house; I think it’s due to the angle of the pocket openings combined with the shallow depth of the pockets. They’re so bad that I wish they’d just skipped pockets entirely. I kept these because they’re great aside from that one drawback, but only use them in combination with a pack that allows me to skip pockets entirely, and will continue searching for the perfect hiking shorts. I’m around 5’10” and 140 pounds, and the medium fits well, but I’m not far from needing to size up to a large.

Great shorts

I love the Dynama shorts - I have numerous pairs in different colors. I wear them all the time for gardening and hiking. My only issue is that the fabric pills over time, making them not so nice outings like going out with friends.

So comfy!

I loooove these shorts! The length fits my height well and the waist band doesn't stretch out, which has been an issue for me with other brands. I had these in black and psyched to see more color options available!!

Too big

Great shorts but run way bigger than older version. I'm sad these didn't fit.

Just right shorts

Perfectly comfortable and exactly the right length - I bought 2 additional pairs and will live in these shorts next summer.

Top tier shorts

Have two pairs of these and wear them pretty much non-stop. Comfortable, no cinched or otherwise tight waistband, resilient fabric, great length, and good colors. I wear them to work out, hike, and just lay around the house. Pockets are functional size too. No complaints!

Would recommend

Fit well according to size chart. Love the blue colour. Like previously mentioned, the pockets are shallow and my phone falls out when I go to sit down
