These shorts are pretty much perfect! They are comfortable, lite weight, pack well, durable, and still flattering. I can wear them to work out, hike, beach, casual, or dress them up. They are perfect to throw in your pack for a trip as they wear well across many occasions and dry fast after a quick wash by hand. I broke down and bought two Full price because I love them so much but once they hit sale status I now have almost every color in the shorts AND the pants!! I will say that the elastic waist on the sale pairs (2020) have considerably less give than the full price pairs I bought last year but didn’t deter me from keeping them. The petite in the pants works better for me in the length, but I have regular length as well and it still works.

It is very difficult for me to find shorts that fit comfortably, look flattering, and perform under a wide range of conditions. These are great! I got the coral-y color - a little outside by usual palette but I think it was on sale. Inseam is a little longer than I usually wear (long shorts are not a flattering look on my muscular/pear-shape frame) but I love them. Thinking about getting another pair in a different color to supplement my summer road trip/camping/hiking wardrobe.

These shorts are so comfortable. They can be dressed up or down. I love the big pockets in the front. I can put my large sized phone in and it disappears completely from site. In other shorts/pants my phone is usually poking out or I end up carrying it because the pockets are too small. While the size small was form fitting on me, I bought a medium for a more loose and relaxed look/fit. LOVE these shorts.

This product is great for work, going out or running errands. I've not tested them on the trail, but they feel strong enough to handle it.

I love love love the aphrodite range from north face. I have the black shorts, and have bought the long pants as well. I get comments all the time. They are so comfortable, breathable and flattering. I've definitely put these through the ringer wearing on multiple backpacking trips, countless hikes and even scrambled in them and they are still holding strong. Despite being in the strong sun all the time they have held their color really well. The zip pocket is super handy too I always stash my lip balm in there. The elastic waist is great because I have a bit of a booty with a small waist so I don't get the gapping I do with other brands (cough patagonia cough mountain hardwear). I've been wanting to get another colour of the shorts so I can have more options for my summer adventures!

Thanks for the review, Claire!

Ordered these shorts for outdoor activities and I love them! The length is perfect, long enough but not to short. These are super comfortable also, the waist line is a soft material that you can tight or loosen. The pockets are super deep and useful when you don't want to lug a bag or purse. I am normally a size 6 and ordered a medium. They aren't tight but do fit a little looser which I was looking for.

I am 5'5"and 128 lbs. These are the most comfortable shorts I own. I bought the first pair, and then 2 more. I also bought the 2.0 capri and full length pants. Amazing! Perfect length for over 40.

I'd seriously given up on shorts - they all fit so weird! - until discovering these. They're comfy, cute, versatile, lightweight, fit fantastic, and have the most amazing pockets. Love everything about them, including the reasonable price. I'm 5'9

I love these shorts. I'm going to order more colors but size down this time. They get looser the longer you wear them it seems. They are super stretchy and the length is perfect, not too short and not too long. Perfect functional short!

I have these pants in the capris and decided to buy them in the shorts, too. I wear them as board shorts for when I go boating and wake boarding. They are really comfy and fit perfect.

I bought these shorts to wear on my vacation in Costa Rica, and they're awesome. They're comfortable... both in fit and material. They're lightweight... perfect for hot and humid weather. And they're very versatile... great for zip lining, boating, traveling, etc. I've already recommended them to all of my friends.

These are super comfortable and very durable. I have used these for hiking and at the gym. Loved the thick waist band on these and the pockets. Great for hot weather as well.

I got these shorts to wear hiking and I liked them so much, I wore them every day on my trip. I ordered two more pairs in different colors when I got back from my trip. They are lightweight and I love the pull-on style with not buttons or zippers to dig in. I have a pear shape figure (smaller waist than hips) and they fit perfectly. I would highly recommend for any activity.

Could someone please let me know the measurement of the leg opening? I am curious because I have larger muscular thighs and hate when short fit too snug around them. Thanks!
