Cute, quality, but wrinkles easily

Not a lightweight short! Thick fabric lends structure and durability to these cute and functional shorts. Love the rolled hem on these. Can be rolled again for a more trendy look. Quality of the material is also great, the same as the AP pants which I love.
Pockets are huge in the front but tiny in the back. Only the back pocket has closure for security, and it doesn't fit my phone. Front pockets fit a phone well, but I wouldn't climb with my phone in those loose pockets.
My only issue is that these shorts wrinkle very easily. I was planning on using these shorts as my travel/hiking/climbing shorts on a backpacking trip, but the thick and wrinkle prone material makes them a tough sell for this purpose. They are actually really cute so I will continue using them for climbing, scrambling, and hiking in a hot dry climate - would prefer something lighter for a humid climate.
