I bought a pair of these shorts at full price at REI and when I saw them on Sierra I was thrilled! They were so much less! I bought them for an upcoming hiking trip and I know they will be perfect

    Ordered an 8 and a 10. Am usually a 6 but based on reviews ordered up. 10 was way too large; kept the 8. Because I really liked them, ordered another color pair of 8's later and they were huge. Got to stop paying shipping to and fro so gave up on the second color. My old shipping of 2.95 per order is vanished under the new STP ownership:((.

    Buying shorts or pants is a game of roulette regarding sizing these days. I am 5'7", 38-39" hips, 28-29" waist. Circa 1980, that would have made me a size 12 (and, yes, I remember buying 1 or 2 dress patterns in that size at around that time, not that I am an active sewer. I find that I have to try on clothes in sizes 6, 8, 10, &12, Medium and Large (depending on the clothing brand) to find the size that fits me.

    These shorts fit perfectly. So--if you have a thicker waist, probably they'll nip. If you have a narrower waist, there is a button adjustment on both sides in the rear.

    Mine were the deep red color--I like it very much.

    Have only worn them twice, but, for a practical, comfortable walk-around, they felt great. I love the pockets (front and back), the material is light-weight but hangs nicely.

    The four stars is for the closure at the front. The zipper and exterior button work fine, the interior button on my pair is too large for the buttonhole. I'll either have to adjust it (like I want to spend any time adjusting a buttonhole on a pair of casual shorts--um, no!), just leave it unbuttoned, or continue using it and feeling fumbly. The closure--it's a detail, when it comes to shorts and pants, that you want to see done right.

    I have the Royal Robbins skirt in this fabric and wear a size 8. I am 5'2" and 135 pounds. I bought the 10 in these shorts and they're way too small. not sure if i should now get the 12 or even the 14. 14 is absurd! but i don't like tight shorts. Other than the weird sizing, these are wonderful shorts, knee-length, lots of pockets, quick drying fabric.

    For proper fit, especially if you have curves, order two sizes larger than you normally would. I have been wearing the regular backcountry shorts for years and love them. The brand is excellent quality, but these particular shorts do not fit curvy people without going up two sizes. I ordered an 8 and normally wear a 6 so I gave them to a teenager. The teenager normally wears a 4 and the 8's fit but were almost tight.
