Fjallraven High Coast Trail Short - Men's

Ditch the jean shorts.

Your jean cut-offs do give you exceptional range of motion—no one's disputing that. But, that cotton denim holds sweat like a fly trap and smells twice as bad, so rely on the quick-drying and moisture-wicking Fjallraven Men's High Coast Trail Shorts the next time you head out for a hike. Denim can't hold a candle to their stretch nylon fabric, and the High Coast's inseam gusset will give your legs mobility that will rival your favorite cut-offs.

Perfect Dad Short

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

If you're looking for some serious Dad shorts that have a little style and all the bells and whistles, these are the duds for you. The sweat wicking material is great for hiking, the zipper pockets are very useful and I even dug the built in belt. I've hiked in jungles and through alpine terrain in these bad boys and they haven't failed me yet. They provide great range, breath perfectly and do what a good pair of technical shorts needs to do.

Best hiking shorts I own

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 50 or 33-34US

I do a lot of hiking and a lot of shopping and own a lot of different hiking shorts. These are hands down my favorite. Very light weight and comfortable. I probably hike over 500 miles a year.

Great "Short" Shorts

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

I had been looking for a shorter/trimmer pair of hiking shorts for a while now...I'm not into the knee length kind. After searching high and low I came across the Fjallraven High Coast Trail Shorts. Too be honest, these are about an inch shorter than I'd like but I've taken them on a couple hikes the past few weekends and absolutely loved them. They're trim and don't pull on steep inclines. Zip pockets are clean and minimal. They even work for running. I'm planning on using these on my JMT hike this summer.
