Reviewed by GML from San Diego on Tuesday, July 9, 2013I wish the inseam were 2" shorter. I would've ordered another pair if they were. The style, material and pattern were all excellent. However, they were too long for me. I'm 5'8" and wear a 30" inseam in pants if that helps anyone out. I had to return them :(.
Reviewed by Crash McGillicutty from Virginia on Tuesday, June 18, 2013I've tried a number of Mountain Hardware products and have always been satisfied with the quality and performance of their products. These shorts did not disappoint at all and have become my "go to" shorts for pretty much everything - hiking, biking, and just wearing around the house. I would have given them five stars, but the right side pocket opening is made rather small to accomodate the change pocket at the top. It's a bit difficult to get my hand in the pocket and I don't have particularly meaty paws.
Regarding the length - I wear 32" inseam pants and these are the perfect length shorts for me. The bottom hits right below my knee offering a bit of protection when I'm on the bike. Unlike other shorts that I've tried, these are true to waist size. I wear a 31" waist size in most pants and the 31s are the ones that fit me in this short.
Reviewed by Outdoor Pete from Washington on Sunday, April 21, 2013I love these shorts!!! They fit like a downhill MTB short so they are 3/4 length. I have used them for hiking, cycling and just around town. They allow great movement and look as good as they feel.
Reviewed by Jdub from Vancouver on Friday, March 22, 2013I've had a couple pairs of these shorts and they are awesome. Great for wearing on a hike and then out to a restaurant after.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Ipso Facto from Los Angeles, CA on Saturday, February 23, 2013I was excited about these shorts because Mountain Hardwear is reliably good. However, I was very surprised when I tried these shorts on and they were VERY long. I ordered a large (32 waist) I'm 6'2" 180lbs and these shorts came well beyond my knee by several inches. I could not see myself doing any outdoors work or hiking in something like these. I felt like a 17 yr old with this quasi-capris coming down to my shins.
Again, great look and comfortable fabric. But ridiculously long shorts. I'll be returning these for sure.
Reviewed by Philter from Glenside, Pa on Tuesday, September 4, 2012I would give em 5 stars but they are a little too long and I haven't gotten them wet yet so I can't attest to how fast they dry. They are cut very well and look great.
- Cons: Too Long
- Pros: Great Fit Big Pockets, Nice Fabric
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Arizona Peak Bagger from Tucson, Az on Tuesday, August 28, 2012I wear these shorts on hiking and backpacking trips. They are very comfortable because of the loose fit and longer length. I've waded rivers in them where they got soaked. They dried quickly and were comfortable whether wet or dry. This is my second pair and I'll probably buy another.
- Best Uses: Around town, Hiking
- Cons: Front packets small
- Pros: Durable, Good Fit, Good Length
