I have several pairs of these shorts! They are usually my first choice when looking for something comfortable! The fabric and fit are perfect for me. Size 8, I'm 5'8" 130 lbs.

    I have 2 pairs of these shorts and love all of the pockets. The shorter length and heavy quick-dry fabric is perfect for hiking. Unfortunately the sizing has changed and they were way to short waisted. Royal Robbins needs to bring back the longer rise. Sadly I had to return this beautiful red pair.

    Some of my favorites by far!!! Only one color and size was available when I purchased. If they are ever available again, I'll scoop them up. Great fit. Flattering with the length being just right. Love them!!!

    I'm a solid size 10 in most clothing but the 12 fit perfect in these...

    Love this style; already have two pairs of these. Love the blue color. Pocket design and cut are perfect for outdoor fun and hiking
    True to size

    I kind of expected these to be "camp counselor" and a little dorky...on the contrary! While they DO hit a little higher on the waist than what I'm used to, they make my large, soccer legs actually look good! I go on nature walks and hikes throughout the week and have two pair of these shorts -- they've basically replaced my soccer shorts for these activities. I love them and all their many pockets. :) The weight is nice, too. They're not heavy or bulky at all and dry quickly. Love them!

    Royal Robbins is messing with my head. I ordered a size 14 pant from them about a month ago that was comically large. In response, when I decided to buy these shorts, I went with a size 12, and they were almost too tight to button up. Urrrghghhhhh why do outdoor companies make ordering online so hard??

About Royal Robbins

By the late-1960s, veteran Yosemite rock climber Royal Robbins and his wife Liz had grown tired of wearing cutoff jeans on the crag. At the time, apparel designed specifically for outdoor adventure was virtually non-existent. After years of wishing for something better, the couple finally decided to create their own, starting with a pair of climbing shorts called the “Billy Goat.” This was the beginning of Royal Robbins’ clothing revolution. Today, nearly 50 years later, Royal Robbins outdoor clothing is as rugged and reliable as ever. When you buy a Royal Robbins sweater or shirt, or a Royal Robbins pair of pants or shorts, you can bet it will fit great, whether you’re climbing in the Sierra Nevadas, camping in the backcountry or relaxing in your own backyard.
