Best travel shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 50

My title is a bit limiting as these are actually my favorite shorts of all time. Though it was on a long vacation that I fell in love with them. I travelled for two weeks with limited access to laundry and when I could wash there was rarely a dryer. Though I packed several shorts these were always the go to. They had a enough stretch to hike and be active in but a clean enough look that if you paired with a nicer shirt you could pull of a decent restaurant. Fabric stayed clean, easily shed dirt never looked wrinkled. I am somewhat surprised that so many who reviewed said they ran big. I typically wear a 34 and the size 50 (33-34) was a great fit.

Awesome Lightweight Shorts

  • Fit: True to size

Love these. Very minimal and unrestrictive. Lightweight material is great for hiking during the summer!

Second buy

    Coming back for more! This is the second pair I bought. I wear them daily. Thin and light and the fit is AWESOME. I wear swimming, hiking, around everyday. Definitely my favorite shorts.

    Thing legs

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 33/34

    Fjallraven hit the nail on the head with everything except the thighs. Granted I don't have the skinniest legs out there, but for a 33/34 waist they are just a bit snug on the legs. However, I will say that most paints and shorts we carry that are perfect for my waist are a little tight in the thighs. Still love them though and great fit.

    Love these shorts!! They do run large so size down one size. Bought two colors because they are that good.

    Great Summer Shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 32

    Runs large, I am a 33-34 and the 32 fits great! 6'2" and they come just above my knee.

    Thin, light, and stretchy. No DWR so they will soak up water if they get wet but vary quick drying. I use them to wet wade fish on ware days. Best use is climbing, zipper side and rear pocks to keep thing from falling on your belayers head. Gusseted crouch and vary stretchy. Highly recommended.

    unsure

    overall construction and cut lack the dynamism of arc'teryx - kinda old school cut. durable fabric. rich colours. sadly too big. seems my body is in transition from 32->30in - but this does seem like a big 32.
    oh and the belt loop are a different colour in the dark olive - not clear from web image
