Outdoor ResearchFerrosi 10in Short - Men's

Summertime in the mountains.

Spend your summers hiking, climbing, and backpacking all over the mountains wearing the Outdoor Research Men's Ferrosi 10in Short. Outdoor Research made this superlight softshell short out of stretch woven ripstop for rugged reliability and freedom of movement. It has a low-profile waist to accommodate harnesses and hip belts. The Ferrosi has a zippered security pocket for electronics and valuables.

These could have my favorite shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 30

I loved these shorts, the weight and material of them is exactly what i was looking for, sadly for me i just couldn't get the sizing right. the 32 were just to loose around the waste for me and the 30s fit better around the waste but I have big thighs and the were just a little to tight in the fun zone.

I would highly recommend these to everyone, I just wish they made a 31 for me. I still give there a 5 star and think the sizing is true, its more my odd body shape so I didnt want to knock them a star for that.

James... prayers may be answered! i THINK we are doing 31s, 33s and 35s for 2019! Come back to Backcountry and look for them next spring! Sorry you have to wait!

I got these shorts for my boyfriend to climb in. These shorts are so stretchy! They are great for climbing, because they don't restrict any of your movements. They are a good length, not too short and not too long. These are just great shorts all around.

These are my go to outdoor shorts. I run, bike, hike, and climb in them.
Super comfortable, useful pockets.
I usually wear with a belt, the waist gives a little.

Thank you for a great review! Try the Ferrosi Crag Pants! Killer!

Seriously, whether we are talking pants or shorts here you seriously can't go wrong with the Ferrois. Material is light, soft, comfortable and durable. So pumped to grab the shorts after having the pants.

Thanks Kyle! Enjoy!

Fine shorts

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

I ordered two of these and find them very comfortable. The only thing I wish these had is a built in belt system. This requires a belt to fit snugly.

Hi there! Belts are so hard! Some people want them and some don't! Thank you for the feedback, though!

Best shorts ever

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 34

I have two pair of these shorts and they are my favorite go to shorts for summer they fit perfectly and ware well good for any outdoor activity as well as formal flat front short. They dry quick worn thru rafting trips as well as climbing. Can ware lounging and feel as comfortable as athletic shorts but the look of chino shorts will not be displeased

Favorite shorts in best color out there!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 36

I love the OR shorts. They are super comfortable. I love the Shade color. Best color shorts of any manufacturer. (I do wish they were a 12" length, instead of 10")

The Go Anywhere Short

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

Love these shorts! They are super flexible and breathe really well. I've used these hiking through the June heat of Moab and my only other suggestion is a good pair of undies to complement them. Even with cotton underwear they work well but your breathability is greatly reduced. Go with a pair of ExOfficio undies and you're set. They nearly fit me because I am between a 36 and 38 but with a belt they were perfect.

These have become my all-time favorite s

The most comfy shorts I've ever had. Light weight, nice pocket configuration and well constructed. I like having the secure zip pocket for a critical item. They were on clearance so that helped with the decision to purchase. Normally I don't buy shorts that cost more than $25, but you get what you pay for. If they hold up as long as my OR alpine mittens I bought in the early 80's then it will be well worth it (still using them). Glad to see that OR is still focused on quality.

Awesome and Comfortable

    Great shorts for active pursuits!

    Hey Eric, Thank you for the great review. I have several pairs of these shorts myself and absolutely LOVE them! They have so many different styles as well for men and women. Enjoy!
