Verified Buyer Reviewed by jersey jac from nj on Monday, April 4, 2016I am 5'6 and 115 pounds and ordered the size 27. The rise was too short and the fabric wasn't as nice as I thought it would be. I sent these shorts back.
Reviewed by Deej from Greater Boston on Tuesday, January 19, 2016I can't wait to wear these when spring and warm weather return to New England. The combination of merino wool and cotton add up to a weighty fabric that will keep me comfortable hiking on the trail and stand up to the abuse I subject my clothing to in an active lifestyle. Good pockets, with a secure side zip pocket that I can stash my phone in. What I also like is that these are good-looking enough so that I could look presentable with a nice top, which makes it a versatile choice for travel. I got the jet heather/black which looks more like a dark gray and is sophisticated looking (and won't show stains, a big bonus!). These fit true to size - I'm a true size 28 in women's pants and shorts, and I took a 28 in these. For reference, I'm 5'4", 125 lbs. These are well made and worth getting with the coupon I was able to use to buy these.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Maryland from Maryland on Thursday, October 29, 2015Look really nice. Have not washed them yet, but they fit well.
Reviewed by Lather and Rinse from California on Friday, June 19, 2015These shorts are clearly meant to last, and are not at all itchy. It's hard to tell that the wool content is so large! However, I'm giving an Icebreaker product less than a perfect score for the first time ever. I agree with another reviewer that the fit is inconsistent and a little strange -- for me, the waist is not proportional and it's too tight. I compared the shorts to other pairs of pants and shorts with the same rise. The Icebreakers have the smallest waist. Combined with a large metal button at the closure and these might dig every time you sit down. Ordering up a size might help if you want shorts that are a little loose in the caboose but with a waist that fits.
Question “are these shorts stretchy?”
Answer These shorts are not stretchy.
Question “What size is close to small or 6?”
Answer I usually wear a 4 and ordered a 26, but had to return them and get a 28. I hope that helps some. I am about 5'6" and weigh 124 lbs. I love these shorts!
Answer I'm a 2 or 4 and I bought the size 26... they fit nicely.
Answer I agree, the color is more of a charcoal gray, nowhere near jet black.
