great for hiking, but also everyday

    fits true to size. Comfortable and also durable. Not too long of a pair of shorts, and also not skimpy either.

    Comfortable every day shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    I was going through my closet one day and found I didn't have a single pair of shorts that weren't mountain bike shorts. I realized I definitely needed a mid length casual short to wear around town. The Kavu Avalon fit the bill. They're comfortable, they have a drawstring so that I dont have to wear a belt, and the leg ends at the perfect spot, not "mom jean" long, but long enough to be comfortable to someone who doesn't normally rock short shorts.

    They can run up in the crotch a little when hiking or running around, which is why I only gave 4 out of 5, but over all they're pretty nice.

    My Favorite Shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10

    Ever since I bought them, I've worn these shorts every week. They're comfortable, not too short and not too long, and they're super cute. They're appropriate for a casual hike or dressed up for an outdoor concert. I'd highly recommend for anyone who needs a go-to pair of shorts.

    color is right on

      wife loves these shorts, color is prett right on to the photos. Good length as well


      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 4

      These shorts have become some of my favorites. I love the mid length. It’s not too short and not too long. I wear these outdoors all day and feel good enough in them after to grab some dinner or a drink in town. The material is very durable and the color doesn’t fade after washing.






      Comfy pair of shorts

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

      My wife got these for the summers in Utah. Comfortable cut, a good length, and nice pockets that can actually hold things unlike so many other women's shorts. Would recommend!

      Great length

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: 2

      I purchased these shorts in a size 2 (usually 4 in the typical jean) and they fit well. I tried size 4 and they were too large in the waist. The length is perfect, not too short and not too long. I love how the back of the shorts is slightly longer than the front so it covers very well. Very appropriate length. I will purchase more!

      Love these shorts!!!

        Just received my Kavu Avalon shorts in the mail today. They are awesome! I cannot get over how wonderfully they fit. I ordered them to wear while coaching HS girls' slow pitch softball, and they are perfect. Not too long & not too short. I am 5'2" and weigh 145 lbs. I am athletically built, and the size 8s, which I normally wear, fit like a glove!

        This was the type of review i was looking for! I'm about to order my first pair now...thank you!

        Yay for athletic-build women reviewing fit. I think I will order a pair as well.

        Comfy and flattering!

          I have these in caramel and sand. I think they are true to size. The shorts shrink a little in the wash, but they give a little with wear. The drawcord is nice. When the shorts loosen up with wear, you can re-cinch them with the drawcord. I like the split in the hem; it provides a little extra thigh room.


            I bought one pair of these a few weeks ago and was so in love with them I ordered another pair. The colors look just as they do in the pictures, I was very happy with the Blue Scout color I received. I would agree with Luv2NetShop on the sizing. I usually wear a 4 or 6 depending on the brand, 6 was pretty big but 4 is absolutely perfect. For reference I am 5'3 125

            Kavu Avalon Shorts

              Liked them, just did not fit the size ordered based on the size chart. I'm an athletic built, 5'2", 116 lbs, 36 hips, 27 waist. I'm normally a size 4P, but based on the chart I decided on the 6 because it is my first time ordering Kavu shorts. They were too loose. Returning for a size 4 'cuz I really like them.
