Great shorts but limited pocket space

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 32

These shorts are great for any kind of active use, i.e. riding a bike, going on a hike, or hanging out at the beach. They are light and super comfortable. The slim cut looks good but you may want to consider a size up if you have long legs like me or in between waist sizes. Even slightly big on my waist size they fit well and have a drawstring to tighten.

I wouldn't say these are the most versatile shorts though because the pockets are not very deep. My XL sized phone fits a bit snug and putting my keys and wallet in the other pocket makes it bulge a little. At least there are zippers to keep things from falling out. I would've added a back pocket so my keys could go there.

Overall, these are the most comfortable shorts I own. I'll still wear them day to day in the city because they so feel good, but if you're someone who needs more pocket room beyond a slim wallet, phone and keys then these may not work for you. The other backcountry shorts will be better. If there is a V2 of these w/ a back pocket I'd buy them again.

Update 6/9: After wearing these like 5 or 6 times, the upper part of the zipper popped off its seam so the fly no longer zips. Have to get it fixed :(
I'm kind of surprised. These felt sturdy but I have pairs of Uniqlo shorts that I've been wearing for years and they have never failed.

Right hand pocket issue

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

I just received this pair of shorts and tried them out. I immediately noticed something strange with the right pocket on the shorts. The zipper length tailoring is slightly reduced (0.5 inches less) on the right pocket due to a little internal coin pocket that the designer put there. This results in strange feel and catch effect when I put my hand in to grab my keys. The coin pocket may be useful but the reduction in zipper length is funky and my pinky finger keeps getting caught on the little internal pocket. This issue isn't a deal breaker. I'm sure I'll get used to this feature but it detracts from the my overall comfort and satisfaction. Overall the pant material is light and stretchy, and the waist button is solid and a feature I enjoy.

Great shorts

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 31

They fit real well, and the 4-way stretch is magical. Great all-around short for hiking/yoga/relaxing around the house.

Favorite hiking shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

I often hike and backpack in these shorts and love the mobility and breath ability. They're also surprisingly durable. If you stop by a bar or restaurant on the way home from your hike, throw a new shirt on and no one will know the better.

Good shorts, issues with button

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Even with a good bit of play in the waist, the button pops open with the tiniest bit of pressure (bending over, sitting down, etc..) Everything else about the short is stellar! Fit and materials and excellent. Just put a heavier duty button on there, and you're gold!

Multi-purpose short

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 31

Fits a little tight, sized up to 31 from my normal waist size of 30. Now that I have the right fit, love these. Perfect for a hike, dinner, whatever activity.

Love them!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These shorts are awesome. Great for hiking, lounging, the office, or really whatever. The fit is a bit snugger than your standard short, but not too much to have to size up.

Smells like cigarettes

    Received item with a stain on the front and reeked of cigarettes. Gross.

    I'm so sorry this happened to you Alex! IT looks like we failed to process a damaged return. I'm sending you an email right now and can send you a brand new pair + offer a free return label. Please reach out to me directly with any other questions or concerns you have!

    Very versatile short

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 32

    Light weight, 4-way stretch, breathable, and perfect snug fit. I almost forget I'm wearing them, similar feel to board shorts (e.g., Hurley Phantoms). Zippers on pockets are very useful. Drawstring tie around waste takes pressure off the snap/fly and prevents it from coming apart when bending over or climbing. I wear them for everything!
