These are really nice shorts. The fit is trimmer than the other ice breaker shorts I have so I needed a bigger size. These are also slightly dressier than the casual hiking shorts.

    these wool shorts are adorable , I got the longer version , as pictured . they ARE itchy tho , not like your Merino wool long underwear . I actually was expecting the same feel , but there are retings on Merino wool , like fine super fine , these must be medium (?). I had to order some silk bloomers to wear under them !! I tested them , with the silk long underwear I own , after I could not wear them 5 minutes without a liner of some sort . I still really like them tho . the price was so bearable !! I do recommend these wool shorts .

    These are very nice shorts for those who want natural fiber and durability. I am 5'5 130#, not very curvy in my hips, and usually wear a size 26 in skinny jeans. I bought the 28 after reading reviews, and it is perfect.

    Well constructed, smooth fit but runs small for size. Wool does feel itchy, may be alright if the fit was looser.

    I bought these shorts in a size 28 in the cabin color and they fit fine. Then I ordered a pair in the lighter tan color and they were HUGE (falling off). I could not figure out what was wrong with the sizing, but then I noticed that the light tan pair buttoned on the opposite side. I honestly think they were men's shorts that were mislabeled as women's. I still don't understand how a size 28 (I assume that means a 28" waist) wouldn't fit, whether it was men's or women's, but the sizing on this pair was wrong. But the shorts themselves are cute, and I love my cabin-color pair in size 28. Just beware if you get a really odd-sized pair that it may be an error in labeling or sizing.

    These shorts are a nice shorter length. I got the cabin color...the fabric looks almost like tweed or some other "dressy shorts" fabric, but the cabin color is casual enough that they're fine for hiking or more casual endeavors. I was unsure about what size to order, so for others who might be uncertain: I'm 5' 3", 115 lbs. My "natural waist" (i.e. the smallest part) measures about 26-27", but I often wear jeans in a 29 waist. I originally ordered the 29, but they were too big. The size 28 fits with a little breathing room, but without being too loose/baggy.

About Icebreaker

Crafted using only the finest merino wool grown in New Zealand’s Southern Alps, Icebreaker clothing is known around the globe for its incredible comfort and performance. Unlike synthetic fabrics developed in a lab, Icebreaker merino wool is grown, cultivated and field-tested in the mountains. Designed to offer exceptional comfort during a range of outdoor sports, Icebreaker underwear and apparel naturally resists odors, regulates body temperature, wicks moisture and dries quickly. Superfine New Zealand merino wool is also much softer than traditional sheep’s wool, which means no itch. Icebreaker socks, long underwear and base layers also come in a selection of weights to keep you warm without overheating. Ready to join the merino revolution?
