Teddy Roosevelt would have worn these

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 33-34

Its hard to pinpoint what i love so much about these shorts. I think its the way they fit and feel. They fit very naturally, when i wear them to work i feel like I'm on an adventure. The feel of the fabric is very flat, durable and stiff but not stiff in a bad way stiff in a way that means the shorts are expressing how themselves and how they want to look - how THEY want to be worn. Its worth mentioning that the different variations are significantly more different than the website pictures let on ... the Barents style in khaki is the sweet spot.

New favorite shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So these shorts are great for camping as well as just wearing around on the weekend. They are made very well and hold up very good during all my activites and washing machine. The color is not fading and pockets come in handy all the time with kids.

Really the beat deaigned outdoor/work shorts I have ever owned or seen. The material is hella durable but feels natural still. I sat on a nail at a construction site and it didnt pierce the butt. Pockets are genius and snap buttons are perfectly strong and easy enough to open: they never pop open when I don't want them to. I love the double layered thigh cargo.
I have had the Fjallraven barrents pro pants for 5+ years now, they were my travel pants (backpacking) and my construction pants for barn building and I still have them and they still rock. They only get better!
Really, I don't often say this but the price should be even higher for this company's pants/shorts. Best on the planet. And they look cool AF.

Thanks for taking the time to write this review!! Glad to hear you're loving these as much as your pro pant (if not more)! Hit me up when you're ready for more colors! ;)

Incredibly resilient, great fit

Dad was pleased

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 36

Gave these as a gift to my dad. He loves them and wears them all the time. The fit is a bit more slim, just so y'all know :) He is normally a size 36. That is what we ordered and they fit great. He is really hard on clothes and the G-1000 fabric on these is incredibly resilient.

Do you have any idea on the length of these shorts?

Hey! These shorts will fall just above the knee. Let me know if you have any further questions!

These shorts do run maybe a half size big, but they still fit great! The fabric is top-notch and will withstand many rigorous days of climbing, hiking or anything else you'd like to throw at them.
