I bought these for to use for backpacking, but the material is so comfortable, lightweight and stretchable that I have used them for everything. From hiking and backpacking, to mountain biking, gravel biking, or just around town. I was so happy with them I bought another pair.

I wear these shorts most days in the summer and I love them. Nice and lightweight and super quick drying as well. The front pockets are nice and roomy, nothing falls out of them into the sofa cushions or under your car seat when you sit back. I bought my first pair last year and liked them so much I ordered another pair that I just recently received. Like another reviewer, I’d like another half inch on the back pocket, it’s barely deep enough for a billfold, but that’s about it, all in all I think they’re great! I’m 5’11” and 175 lbs and the 32s fit well and come down to my knee caps when standing. Cheers, Bill Dudley - OR Grassroots Athlete

Using lightweight and seemingly durable fabric these shorts cover a lot of bases in terms of hot weather clothing. The fabric has a softer feel then I expected while still being tough. High hand pockets keep your change from dropping out yet can carry more than most OR pants\shorts. Zippered hip pocket is awesome for storing snacks or your keys while climbing. Keeping them out of the way of a climbing harness. Fit is pretty standard, a little wide in the legs then some I guess. All in all these have been a life saver this overly hot summer. Great for climbers, hikers and casual wear. Running in them isn't bad either. The only thing to watch out for is the waist belt buckles. The belt isn't hemmed and so the buckle can slip off in the wash or when unbuckled. I solved this by doubling back the webbing through the buckle. Enjoy
