A mountain in front of you, and the car behind you.

The Mountain Hardwear Women's Mirada Cargo Short pairs well with your hiking shoes and a backpack. Its mini ripstop fabric feels light, dries quickly, reflects sunlight, and stays strong for years. Mountain Hardwear coated the fabric with DWR to shed rainfall. The wide waistband has a soft interior, and the cargo pocket is perfect for your compass, phone, or camera.

I LOVE Mountain Hardwear. LOVE. These shorts looked darker in the photos but are closer to a brighter fuscia-meets-eggplant color. Tisk #1. Second, it is straight Nylon...no stretch. I NEED stretch or with my active life, RIP! Tisk #2. And finally, I either want a mid-thigh short, or Bermuda length when I travel abroad, and this is like 2" short of either....awkward. Tisk#3.

But the cut is CUTE CUTE CUTE
