Loved these shorts except they were a little small around the waist and so they had to sit very high on my waist to button.. I almost kept them but I just didn't like how high-waisted they were. So I returned them. I am 5ft 8in and I normally wear an 8, I wanted these to be nice and loose for hiking and summer activities so I ordered the 10.. which did fit nice and loose everywhere but the waist (except for when I wore them above my belly button) They hit upper to mid thigh. The color is beautiful and the material was very soft and comfy. Love all the pockets. I am sure if I ordered maybe two sizes up they may have worked.. I can say it was easy to return them, Sierra Trading Post makes returns easy and fast so I don't even think twice before ordering their shoes and clothes because I know I can send them back if they don't work.

This is my second pair of these shorts and I was thrilled to find them on sale. They are soft, great for hiking or in town, and have incredible pockets. The size 6 fit my 5'6", 118 lb body perfectly. And they look good too!

I wish I had known how good these were because I would have ordered more before my size sold out! The fabric is perfect -light and soft, pockets are great and a nice short length. I ordered a size up (12) but they are big as I am usually (10). they do run true to size. I like them so much I'm just going to wear a belt. I like this fabric better then any non-cotton fabric I've ever encountered.
