With this many pockets, you could almost leave your backpack at home.

When you're ready to take off and chase the horizon for a weekend, make sure you're wearing shorts. In fact, make sure you're wearing Royal Robbins' Women's Backcountry Shorts. They're made from Supplex nylon, which is light, quick-drying, wrinkle resistant, and doesn't retain odor, even if you spend a few days away from the comforts of indoor plumbing. The Backcountry Shorts also have a double seat so they'll last a long time on canoe paddling duty. A gusseted crotch allows for easy movement, and hook-and-loop closure pockets prevent squirrels from snagging your granola bar.

Flattering stitch lines and pocketing

A Classic. I have been wearing this short for 8 years. Every other year I invest in a new color. The stitch lines and pocket detail are very flattering on body. There are small buttons and tabs on the back of the waistband which are great for getting the right fit - we ladies are all different when it comes to the hip and waist area and how hard it is to get that right fit. The inseam is just the right level of coverage and the gusseted crotch gives great movement. Moisture just beads off the fabric and they stay dry.

Royol Robbins Backcounty rock!

    These shorts are great for many reasons: the fabric is quick drying and seemingly stain-resistant; the length is not so long that you look like your mother (I am 45) but not so short that you look like a floozy; the color options are great; the fabric is durable and the colors are stable; there are many pockets for all your stuff. Can't say anything negative.

    Love these shorts

      I highly recommend these shorts. I bought them to go on an action adventure tour in Costa Rica. They worked out great! The pockets are deep and hook and loop closure sealed. The shorts are a great length - not too long, not too short and they give you plenty of room in the thigh area. Best of all, they are cut well....they have a nice slimming effect! :)
