    Gah! I love these! Long, comfy, and fully adjustable at waist and knee. I can't wait to wear these all summer.

    Great adventure shorts

      I bought these shorts for a hike in Belize. I have thick thighs so longer shorts are necessary or I'll start a fire. I bought a 12 but should have gotten a 10. They're a bit baggy, but still comfortable. Like someone else, I pulled the drawstrings out of the legs. They dry fast and didn't over heat me in 90 degree conditions.

      I wear these almost everyday. I have them in a gray and the blue. I love the blue color.
      No complaints here!

      LOVE these shorts. Comfortable and flattering. I'm fit, I have hips, and I inherited a tendency toward cellulite. The back pockets offer a layer of lining over the butt and the length hides thighs. So from the outside all anyone notices is that I'm fit. I took out the tie strings at the knees -- it looks cleaner and less "mom pants" now.

      Do these fall below or above your knee?

      OK shorts

      These are a comfortable pair of shorts because they're cotton so they breathe. The fit is relaxed so movement isn't restricted. I only gave them 3 stars because the fabric isn't as smooth as I like and there aren't any belt loops.

      Perfect description of these Prana Emma Knicker, thanks!

      Great Hiking/Climbing Shorts

      I bought these in red (tomato) and they're a great color - the pics online are pretty accurate but make them look a little more pink than they are. These shorts are light (though red is not see-through) but seem sturdy, and have decent (not super deep) pockets that I can fit my hands/fists in. There is one buttoned pocket that I left my phone in a few times while climbing without any accidents, so that's pretty secure. I've worn these on a 10 mile hike and on many climbs. With a harness there's no chafing (they're very soft), and I've never had sweat marks. They're just really comfortable, look good, and make me happy (the most important part!).

      I do wish these came one size smaller, as they're a little baggy on me (I usually wear 0), but the drawstring ensures they stay up, and the extra room is good for being active. It'd be cool if the pockets were a little deeper, too, but most women's pants are worse for pockets so I can't dock any points.

      Yellow is fun, loose, and Breeeeezy!

      I love these knickers. They are loose though, and they stretched out quickly with wear. If you're in between sizes, size down. These are fun, cool, relaxed knickers! They are perfect for the beach or lake.

      White is see-through

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: True to size

      Love the fit, feel, versatility of the knicker, but beware the white is completely see-through especially in the crotch area. Can't imagine what they look like if you get them wet. Sent my white ones back, ordered red ones.
