Perfect fit

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

Most women will agree that finding the perfect summer shorts is a never ending quest. I wanted some that were a bit longer than my many pairs of denim ones, something that could be hiked in, and a looser fit around the legs. These shorts do all of that. They are true to size, but I could have maybe gone one size down. The material is rugged but still able to move in. The length is perfect, and they have that casual slouchy loose fit to them, which is super flattering and actually makes thighs look smaller if that's a selling point for anyone. All in all, highly recommend.

Love them!!

I recently took these shorts on a vacation where we were hiking and active the whole time and they were perfect! They're super comfortable to wear around - the waistband is great, the opening in the legs isn't too tight, and the length is perfect!

Great Hike Short

The Mountain Hardwear AP Scrambler Short is a solid choice for both Hike and Casual. The fabric is thick enough to hold up to scrambling around on rocks while the cut is casual enough to rock into town. The waist band can be comfortably worn under a pack, and the rear zip pockets are perfect for key's or credit cards. Fits true to size and length is perfect at 4" not too short and not too long.
