  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great Shorts

    Great fit and look. Clean lines make these shorts look smart and ready for the most casual or "dressed up" look you want (as far as shorts go).

    Icebreaker Escape Short

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

    The fabric is lightweight and breathable. Very nice.

    I have a 32" waist and they fit true to size. No belt needed.

    Great for hot weather

    • Fit: True to size

    These are light and confortable, specially during those hot summer days. They fit perfectly, not too tight , not too loose and they run long just above the knee. Also they have several pockets so you can carry small things.

    Great summer short

    • Fit: Runs large

    These have been my go to short this summer. I love how light they are which makes them very comfortable for the summer. The grey color is good for all sorts of occasions (I wear them to work, hike, climb, anything). They have held up very well so far, though I haven't been overly hard on them.

    Note that I thought they run a little big. I got the 34" waist and I often have to wear a belt with them unless they're freshly out of the wash (which is fine).

    Light and comfortable

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

    These are great for summer as they are super light and can be worn for most occasions I find myself in. I am closer to a 31 waist so I always need to wear a belt with these but it does not change the fit or comfort too much.

    Amazing Shorts

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

    This could you ONLY shorts for all type of activities. I went to a three week trip to Europe and only used this one pair. No need to wash it unless you get it dirty, hanging overnight to let it air out and it is like new next day. The only thing that can be improved is the pocket depth... but - no need to fill the pockets with junk.
