    Shorts that won't, well, fall short.

    Instead of owning a pair of shorts for climbing, hiking, backpacking, and mountain biking, get the Outdoor Research Women's Ferrosi Shorts and be ready for everything.

    Not for her

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10 (normally 8)

    Wife didn't like how these sat on her hips. She doesn't care for her shorts to sit high on her waist and even after sizing up, these still just didn't fit the bill. Great short and she said she loves the material and feel and would recommend them to anyone, just not for her.

    Perfect summer shorts

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 4
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    These are super soft, lightweight material. I have both the gray and the black. I also have the long pants and knew to buy these a size smaller than my normal size. I love how they fit and are cool in the summer heat. I can wear them out with my hubby or doing yard work. They hold up well in the in the washer and I line dry them. Looking forward to a lot of summer days in these bad boys.

    Great Shorts

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

    From my Moms perspective:
    I love these shorts. The inside of the waist has soft material so it wont rub when backpacking. The the stretch fabric makes them very comfortable. The gussetted crotch is a plus. The sizing runs a bit big. I normally wear a size six, but fit in a size 4. I think I'll buy a second pair in another color.

    Sizing Is Flattering But Not Accurate

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Returned size 12
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 168lbs

    I love OR products so these shorts sounded perfect for my fly fishing and hiking needs - comfortable, quick drying, and nice looking as a bonus. Even low waisted as they are intended to be worn, on this chunky female frame they are still a size too big. I bought size 12 and they were swimming on my waist. I reordered in size 10 ( don't wear size 10 in ANY other of my clothing) and they fit perfectly. Cant wait to hit the trail or water to try them out! Five stars if sizing was accurate.

    Bought three....

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Fit is a bit loose, and goes about mid-knee. Material is comfy, durable, has a bit of stretch and is lightweight. Great shorts for hiking, backpacking and lounging...just about anything.

    cut wider

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

    I picked these up for a friend and she found the cut to be a bit boxy and wider. For climbing these would be great but it's not the most flattering cut according to her.

    great fabric & style

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Gave these as a gift, but fondled em before wrapping em up. Oh the fabric was incredible! I think it would wear & launder beautifully. The color was nice that you could prolly get em a bit dirty w/o looking too scruffy, when grabbing some chow after a fun day. I ordered my sister's size & she says waist bands are usually too large, this however had a very small waist band. They were returned for that sizing issue (wish they were my size).

    Ferrosi short is very comfy

      This short is long enough for me as a 60+ active grandma. I don't want a short that shows too much leg but enough so I don't suffocate in a heavier material. Comfortable waist band, pockets and lifetime guarantee are a no brainer

      Awesome Shorts!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I love these! I'm not the biggest fan of short-shorts and prefer longer inseam shorts but nice ones are hard to come by. These are great for hiking, wearing to work (at least in my case they're appropriate for work), and wearing every day! I like the looser fit - so that was perfect for me!

      The material is great! I wish the pockets were bigger though - but that's not a fault of these in particular but all women's clothing.

      Great Shorts

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I love these shorts. They are nice and comfortable for the summer. The zip pocket on the thigh is great for keeping a CC and some Cash safe during your daily activities.

      My daughter both liked mine so much, they each bought a pair.

      favorite short!

        The Ferrosi Short from OR is my favorite: it moves with me, and has great pockets for accessing things - like the one on the leg. It is a perfect spring / summer weight too, and I love the length. These shorts are only slightly generous in sizing, with me being between an 8 and 10, I wear an 8. Better than wearing a 10!! :-)

        Sizing runs big, fits nothing like Ferrosi pant

          Love the Ferrosi fabric but the fit on the shorts is nothing like the capri or the pants. They felt almost 2 sizes too big and just overall baggy. Wish they would just make the shorts the same as the other styles.
