The perfect shorts!!

I love my new shorts! Perfect length and fit, nice and stretchy and super comfy everywhere! I appreciate the light quick dry and UPF added protection as I spend alot of time in and on the river coaching and these are just great shorts!!

Great lightweight short

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

I find these shorts very comfortable. Because they are lightweight fabric, they move well while hiking without binding at the hip flexors. I like the 6" length which is more flattering for my no-longer-young legs. I plan to take these while traveling in Europe this summer since they wash easily and dry quickly. I am 5'2" and 100 lbs and the XS fit perfectly.

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.

My favourite shorts.

I love these shorts, they are the perfect length and super comfortable and cool for hot weather. I have 3 pairs in different colours.

Waist is not very giving

Just Ok. The waist is not very giving and the elastic used is very thin. A different elastic product would be better. I have hips and the elastic hardly gives. While the shorts fit well once they are up, they are not easy to get over my hips. I have an older pair and they are much better.

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!!

Honestly not my favorite mountain hardware item I’ve purchased. It’s not bad, it’s just not… good. I have probably 5 pairs of the dynama pants and these just don’t quite fit the same on me for some reason. Keeping them but definitely not going to be my go-to hiking shorts, maybe it’s the lack of excessive pockets, I don’t know.
