    Size XS

    • Size Bought: XS

    After finding the right size I love these shorts. I ordered the Navy blue, black and purple dots. I am 5'7 and around 135lbs. Originally based off of reviews I went with a medium and they were too big and unflattering. Returned for a small and they still weren't quite right. Returned again for an XS and they are perfect. The pictures for this review is me in a size XS. I love the fabric and they are very comfortable. They are durable and will be perfect for hiking, running errands or whatever.

    So baggy and ill fitting

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I wanted to love these so much, and I couldn’t wait for the delivery. I ordered a Small. The waist fit perfectly, but the legs were longer than expected and the butt and legs were so big and baggy— it looked like I was wearing a trash bag with leg holes. The material is a lot more “swishy” than expected too. I’m so disappointed by these!

    not the same fit as the older version

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: s

    I bought these shorts 2 years ago and absolutely LOVED them. I lost them last summer on a trip and have been waiting for them to come back in stock. I ordered the same size and color as before, and they definitely have a baggier fit. My old pair looked like the image shown (fit and flattering) but the new pair looks like the image i'm attaching (longer, baggier and rather unflattering). With all that being said, the material seems to be the same as before -- very durable and drys quickly! Might downsize but i'm afraid they will still be baggy :/. Please bring the old fit back!

    not the same fit as the older version

    Gloria I posted pics above in smaller sizes. Once I got to the XS I thought they fit exactly like the model in the pics. :)

    I read the reviews and was excited to get this stylish short that I could wear on the trail or out for lunch. What I received was a baggy/frumpy pair of shorts that would make my grandmother proud.

    In the advertisement image, you can see that the shorts are not loose, but tailored close-ish to the womens thigh so that there is still a little give for physical activity. The shorts I received are so baggy that I am swimming in them. I was able to fit BOTH of my legs in a single pant-leg, and trust me when I say I do not have tiny thighs they just looks small in the picture compared to this circus tent of a pant. At first I thought i was shipped the wrong product!

    Really dissapointed I have to return this and also really disappointed in the advertising of these shorts because Backcountry also charges 7 dollars to return an item despite how different it looks compared to what is advertised.

    I gave it 2 stars because the color was identical as advertised and the material was extremely comfortable and is the quick drying material that I was looking for.

    Please see my image of the shorts before buying so you can know what you will actually receive.

    Better than expected.

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

    I was skeptical of the pleats, but gave these a shot because of all the positive reviews and I'm glad I did. This is a lightweight, comfortable, quick-drying short. I've mostly worn these this summer when taking my kids anywhere where I also expect to get wet. They're great for throwing on over my swimsuit when going to the pool, too. I'd also wear them for hiking. The waistband is comfortable, and the side pockets fit my phone. They fit true to size. The leg openings are not too tight on my more muscular thighs.

    Breezy and light

    Love these shorts! They dry quickly and fit great. The material is durable and they breathe well keeping you dry and comfortable. They have stretch to them so you can move freely, Not constrictive at all. Great buy!

    Comfortable

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    These shorts are comfortable however, the waistband feels really thick. I returned them because I was worried about how long they would take to dry.

    Very Comfy and Stylish

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

    These shorts were great! I worked out in them and also love wearing them casually around the house. Super light material and it doesn't stick to my skin awkwardly. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for flow-y shorts like these!

    Excellent shorts

      These shirts are fantastic! They fit really well, are just the right length, and so comfy! They dry quickly and don’t wrinkle easily, making them a great choice for traveling.

      Super Comfortable

        These shorts are awesome for summer! Super lightweight and comfortable even on the hottest of days!

        LOVE THESE SHORTS!

        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Medium

        These shorts are WAY cuter than the picture suggests. They've got a nice pleat on the top of each leg and a rolled bottom. They fit really well and don't squeeze (my personal pet peeve). The material is a quick-drying one but that also looks nice enough to wear into town. I'll definitely sport these both on the trail and in the city. I could probably have fit in a small, but I like my shorts to be on the comfortable side of things, so I'm glad I went with a medium.

        Perfect All-Around Shorts!

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

        I echo the previous reviews in that these are seriously great for everything! There's a lot of stretch to them so you can easily move around, the pockets are a great size to hold your phone or keys without falling out, and they have a drawstring to really get that perfect fit. I was told to size up in these- I normally wear a L and so I ordered an XL and they fit great. One thing I was only slightly disappointed in was that the cuff on the hem is stitched to the shorts so you can't roll them down- not a huge deal, but something to note if you were curious about that! I can't wait for the weather to warm back up because these would be perfect for days spent at the lake!

        Good for literally everything.

        These are literally my go-to shorts. Hiking? Walking? Travelling? These are meant for all of it. I can wear them all day and they have REAL pockets. Seriously super happy with these and found the fit to be on point.

        Thanks Backcountry!

        Comfy go to shorts!

        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: XS

        I like having a go to pair of shorts that are not demin. These shorts are so "free" and stretchy and comfy! The fabric is very comfortable and moves with me. They are great for casual outings and running errands as well as hiking (and looking damn cute doing it!). The only down side for me is that I do not love super short shorts and when I sit down they do come up and feel a bit short but that is a preference thing, when I stand they are a good length! I am excited to wear them next summer, they are my favorite short even with the shortness!

        Definitely #GOATworthy

        • Size Bought: Medium

        I only got these last week and have already worn them multiple times. I love these shorts because they're great for hiking, but I can still wear them out and about after a hike. They're really cute, comfortable and my new go to. I wear a size 27 pant normally and the medium fit me perfectly. I love how roomy the pockets are because I can fit my iPhone 7 in them without it sticking out. I am waiting to see how durable they are after a lot more wear and washing.

        **Update: Few months later and I've worn them a lot more and still love them. THey've held up great. Wore them most recently on a snowy hike and they did great. It was steep coming off the peak and I fell a lot and they did great. Dried super quick too!

        My Wife's Favorite Shorts

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

        My wife loves these shorts! They fit true to size and are incredibly comfortable. In addition, they are breathable and dry very quickly. She has worn them during camping trips, hikes, social gatherings, etc. She likes them so much that she asked me to buy her another pair.

        Comfortable and Versatile

        • Size Bought: Small

        I bought these shorts for multi-use on a trip to Europe. I like that I could hike in these if I needed to and also wear them to a casual dinner. The fabric is soft, breathable, stretchy, and the length is just right!
