Basin and Range East Canyon Hybrid Short - Men's

Cover all your bases.

You might not plan on getting wet every time you step out the door, but when you live between mountains that tend to catch a lot of rain and creeks that swell every spring, it just has a way of happening, which is why Basin and Range made its Men's East Canyon Hybrid Shorts with a quick-drying nylon, spandex fabric. Based out of Park City, Utah, Basin and Range is well-acquainted with the mountain lifestyle and designs its clothes as such. The East Canyons don't just dry quickly when you encounter water throughout the day, they also features UPF 30+ sun protection, so you can enjoy a full day in the sun without any extra worry. And since all the pockets on these shorts are made from mesh, you won't have to stress about them holding water when you take a slider in the creek or decide to take an impromptu hop in a pristine mountain lake.

  • Q & A

Great function, weird fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 34

Bought these shorts for my boyfriend and while he loves the functionality of them, they do fit a bit large and are not as tapered as one would hope (i.e. a little baggy). He is a 33 and usually sizes up to 34 but in this case should have gone down to 32 and would have had room to spare.

The 30 day test

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I wore these shorts for 30 straight days. I work in a warehouse and hike with my family at least 4 days a week. I also wore them out to dinners and social events. These shorts have held up and worked well. I would recommend these to anyone looking for an excellent all around short.

The 30 day test

Comfortable shorts

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

This is my second of three pairs of this same short. Flexible fabric that is moisture wicking and easy to wash. Wear them for yard work or for going out on the weekend. Can dress up and down. Flattering fit.

Nice Material Odd Fit

  • Size Bought: 30

I wanted to like these shorts, but they fit me very odd. The material seemed nice, pocket placement was good, but they looked very awkward on. They were loose around the waist, very tight through the butt, and flared out around the knees. Not flattering. I think they would be a good fit for one who is less posteriorly endowed than myself.
