Why We Like The J Tree Short

We've had our fair share of climbing attire that either looks too lives-in-their-hatchback to wear beyond the crag or feels stiff and limits our movement on the wall. Thankfully, the J Tree Short bridges the gap between fashion and performance by offering stretchy material, a gusseted crotch, and enough style points for dinner downtown.


  • Performance short that traverses between the crag and city
  • Cotton ripstop material offers stretch and breathability
  • Zippered back security pocket for storing cards safely
  • Gusseted crotch keeps movements fluid, on and off the wall
  • Pairs great with dress shirts and sandals for brewery tours

This is the second pair I have purchased. I liked the first pair so much I wanted to grab a second. Very comfortable and great for everyday wear.

Great for travel or everyday wear!

I was worried about finding a replacement for a pair of MH shorts I had ripped. These fit the bill. The size is pretty spot on and there is enough stretch in the fabric to make them extremely comfortable.

Solid Shorts

These are a solid pair of shorts. They fit great, look nice and are ideal for outdoor activities. They could be nicer though in the looks department. Theres a faint grid pattern on them that makes them obvious they're an active wear material. With that said I'm so sad that MH decided to not bring back the "The Railay Redpoint Short". It was a superior model in every way. If I could go back in time and buy more pairs I would because it was a perfect outdoor casual short. Bring them back MH!

I’m here for William Montgomery

He wears them so well and they lasted since he was a sophomore in high school, well worth the money since he got them through the 5 finger discount program at outdoor inc. sometimes they were too small, sometimes they were too big, but they were always super flattering in the backside

Go to shorts

I would wear these shorts everyday if I could. Durable enough to climb in, but still casual enough to wear around town. The 7" inseam is closer to a 5", but that's what I wanted anyway. Looking forward to more colors!

Love these shorts

I love these shorts and just bought a second pair. Fabric feels good and the little bit of stretch is just enough. There are a variety of rise lengths to choose from which I really like (I'm short). Great range of colors too.

Great shorts, but delicate

These shorts do everything I want while climbing rope or boulder, except they are not durable as the AP pant. They offer great flexibility and fit, great stretch for the high foot moves, yet when you scrape a small section on a small piece of rock on a mild scramble, you’re left with a gaping hole. I love these shorts, but I can’t be patching them after every climb.

JTree shorts

I was looking for something to use for work and other non-hardcore activities and these fit my needs perfectly. They are a lightweight material, yet feel tough. They are not only true to size (a rarity these days), but they stay true to size throughout the course of the day. They have just a little stretchiness, but not enough to cause the shorts to deform during use. MH should offer in more colors, and I would buy even more pairs.
