Why We Built The Green Mountain Short

Whether we're traveling around the country on a roadtrip or around town on a packed schedule, we need clothes that can function for anything that comes our way: running, riding, hiking, yoga, you name it. The Backcountry Green Mountain Short allows us to bring one short to fit all these pursuits, and all the moments in between. The 4-way stretch fabric moves with you for better range of motion and comfort for yoga poses or steep hiking  trails, while the moisture-wicking material helps you stay cool and dry for all-day pursuits. A high waist provides extra coverage as you move, and flatlock seams prevent chafing as you move.

  • Backcountry Exclusive
  • Performance short for running, yoga, riding, and moments in between
  • Four-way stretch and ergonomic design provide full mobility
  • Quick-drying nylon blend works to keep you cool and dry
  • Flatlock seams reduce hot spots and chafing
  • High waist provides a secure, comfortable fit

Waaaaaay too tight

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: M

Either I have a major thunder thigh situation that I didn't realize I had, or these shorts are just one of the most unflatteringly thing I've ever put on.

Clearly, they were way too small, but I feel like a larger size wouldn't have fit right either. They cinch super tight at the bottom, creating a terribly unsightly bulge in the thigh region. If you have any leg fat at all, I feel like this will happen to you.

Versatile shorts!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XS

Right out of the gate I will say I love these shorts! I am petite and they are mid thigh on me and fit well throughout. I really like the length because I am not one to wear short shorts while doing outdoor activities and like to have more coverage. I have also worn these underneath workout shorts that are too short and they act as a spandex attachment type of a thing. A classic performance tech short that can be used for a lot of different activities. I have worn these for climbing and hiking and love them so far which they work really well because of the stretchy material and quick drying nature. LOVE the high waist cut, way more comfortable. I agree with reviewers it would be nice to have some side pockets but for what these are they work well!

Runs Small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

I typically wear a size 14, so ordered a large according to the size chart, but I could even pull the shorts up over my thighs, so returned them. It's possible the XL would work for me, but just an FYI they do run small.

Size M Black Shorts

    These shorts are amazing. Super comfortable and easy to move in.

    Great for running and hiking

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    My husband bought these for me (since I was hesitant to buy fitted running shorts). I’m glad he did. They are super comfortable, a great length and don’t ride up when you move. I have “athletic” thighs and they aren’t too tight. Would be nice if there were some pockets, though.

    Fits Waist, Tight on Thighs

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: M

    The fit is decent (maybe slightly big) on the waist, but it's almost cutting off the circulation in my thighs when I tried it on. The material also doesn't seem like it's anything special, just a basic nylon/spandex material. I typically wear small/medium for bottoms and even the medium was too tight on my thighs. Pretty disappointed with the shorts and now I have to pay for return shipping :(

    Great for running and home workouts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I wasn't sure about this style, only because I have smaller waist and athletic thighs and shorts like usually aren't flattering on me, but I was pleasantly surprised by how great these are! They are stretchy and have been great for running, home workouts, and yoga. Love the length and pleased that they don't ride up when running. I also don't have to mess with adjusting the waistband. Only two minor complaints: I wish they were a liiiiittle more high waisted, I'd say these are more mid rise by my standards. And the seams on the thigh openings are slightly tight, wish the leg opening had a little more give. (I'm 5'3" 128 lbs and have the medium for reference)

    Love these for running

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I have tried different brands for running and all ride up but not these!! They are the perfect length, waist is very comfortable, no riding up and plenty of pocket room!

    How to Measure:
    For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
    Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
    Have someone measure from the center of the back neck down the arm, with arm slightly bent, to the wrist bone.
    Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
    Measure from the crotch to the floor with no shoes.
    Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
