Y’all these are THE shorts. You know, the ones you’ve been searching for for three summers straight? The search is over. High waisted, built in belt, study & quick drying material, pockets that hold your phone, dolphin hem, just the right length, and cute as heck. I’ve worn them hiking, biking, climbing, for home workouts, and for far less athletic pursuits and they work for everything. I’m most often a medium but I sized up to a large based on several reviews saying these run a tad small. I think the large was the best bet for me as I prefer a roomier fit around the legs and the built in belt is perfect for keeping the waist snug. I got the green & the color is true to photos. Hoping to snag the mustard ones as well if they’re ever available on sale again!

I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. The Topo Designs River Short is perfect for almost every outdoor activity. The quality is really outstanding and the fabric is thick and sturdy without being uncomfortable or looking bulky, I never once worried that they would rip or not stand up to the elements. The color is true to the photographs and looks great, I especially loved the red accent details. My favorite feature of this short though is the pockets! Women's clothing tends to skimp when it comes to the pocket department but not this time, the pockets are big and deep without looking lumpy or weird from the outside. The sizing is pretty true to size, I usually wear a size small and ordered a size small which for the most part fit perfectly. The waist did feel a little on the tight side for comfort and I found myself wishing at times that the waistband was just a little bit stretchier but the rest of the short fit perfectly so I think sizing up wouldn't have been the answer. The Topo Designs River Short is the perfect short for river trips, camping, hikes, and hanging around by the lake or in town.

These shorts are so adorable. Who knew I needed a high waisted river short--but I do. These are comfy with the adjustable waist belt, but they run small.

Super Rad Shorts

When I first saw these shorts, I was weary as to how they might fit. I never have had a pair of high-waisted board shorts. I definitely wanted to see how these fit on a human, so I went to Topo's website. There were quite a few images of women using the shorts outdoors, in action, as well as in studio; all of which helped me to understand why I now want I high waisted river shorts. These shorts seem to be a great choice for all kinds of desert adventures as they'll stay comfy and chafe-free thanks to the higher waist. I'm getting myself a pair in the mustard color before they sell out!
