Awesome mobility, durability, and of course, style. I have a pair of the pants too! Quick run down of the features and my thoughts: - The internal drawcord waist seems like a cool feature, but I've never needed to use it. These fit me just fine -Thigh pocket is soooo nice when climbing. It even fits my ginormous iPhone 6+. I will note, it feels a bit awkward to walk or bike with given the location on the very front of the leg. -Cotton/nylon/spandex blend along with the gusseted crotch make for great mobility for all sorts of outdoor adventures and they dry fairly fast I'm anywhere between a 30 and a 32 depending on the model. The 32 is a perfect fit for me here so I recommend sizing up.


An excellent shot, Ben!! Thank you! Leta OR Rep

Awesome features, horrible fit

Fresh out of the box these shorts tick all the boxes; tough cordura fabric, adjustable waist, harness accessible thigh pocket, etc. The critical failure is in the fit. They are a little loose on me but the front pockets gape open like you would expect from pants/shorts two sizes too small and when tying the internal drawcord the shorts bunch all the fabric in front in seriously the most unflattering way possible. Save your money and buy the Ferrosi shorts, they may not be as durable but they were designed to fit humans.

Hey Thomas, I am sorry I didnt see this earlier. The fit has been revamped and I am happy to say that the short is really fantastic. Sorry it didn't fit you well! Leta OR Rep
