The North Face Men's Class V Belted Short is a summer short for in and around the water. Hot sun, lightweight shorts, it's all you need for a bit of adventure. The nylon is partially recycled in these relaxed fit puppies, and is blended with a bit of elastane for unrestricted movement. That means comfortable paddling, swimming, hiking, and waterfall jumping. The belt prevents any slip, so they stay put at the hips, instead of falling down to your ankles. Jump right in.

Love these shorts so far[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought these shorts a month ago at the North Face store in Boulder. I honestly fell in love with them when I saw them and after a month of good wear, I still love them. I've worn these on two trips already and they look brand new still. I'm an apparel design major and I know a good product when I see them. The belted trail short is the men's short silhouette of the summer and this is that category. I actually just did a lab report on these shorts for a textile class and the fabric makeup is spot on for what you want out of a short like this. I honestly would buy another pair.

Great shorts, a must buy for guys[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is my second pair of these shorts actually, picked up the first pair at a factory outlet store and they ended up so great I immediately ordered these online. They have a 7" inseam so they fall about mid thigh for a perfect fit. The fit runs just a tad small so XXL fit me at 44" waist just right. The belt is built in and honestly perfect you can cinch down with a quick pull and release. Has side pockets and side zippered cargo pockets that are mesh lined so you have plenty of space. Can be used for water wear but they are great wear about shorts for outdoor use. Highly recommend.

Not the best...[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These are a huge disappointment... First, there is no "mesh brief liner" as mentioned in the 'Features'...the pockets are mesh, but if you're expecting them to have a swim trunk type liner, nope. Second, Mineral Grey is straight up taupe, there's zero grey in that color, no matter what light source I put them under, they were brown. Lastly, the fit...I've got some meat on me, so I figured they wouldn't look as skort-ish on me as they do in some of the pictures, but I was wrong...may be the micro cargo pockets on them that give that shape, but I wasn't expecting to look like Dr. Ellie Sattler when I put them on (and I love her). Returned them...

Not what they once were[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I agree with other posters about their disappointment over this product. I have bought North Face Class V Belted Shorts for years and never has the product been this bad. First there is no shelf liner, the whole reason I buy this product. Second the fabric is cheap and heavy, hardly the lighter, airier fabric the company once used. Third it appears North Face has reverted to the short shorts edict of 1970. I never thought I would say this but it is no clear to me that the similar product Columbia produces is superior to the North Face short.

Perfect shorts for being active or just hanging out[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was looking for a casual pair of shorts that I could wear for a variety of activities like hiking, playing lawn games with friends, or just hanging out around the house. These shorts are perfect. As a guy with bigger thighs and butt, I was having trouble finding comfortable shorts with a modern, shorter inseam. I love that the 5" length are comfortable but stylish. I know cargo shorts aren't exactly in style but I do like having the extra pockets. The subtle zippered pockets let me carry everything I need without the bulge of a traditional cargo short.

Fun Shorts, Funny Silhouette[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Haven't used for long yet but feel these will be a keeper. These shorts have zippered pockets on the bottom sides, which make them flare out in a strange way. They almost keep the leg holes more open. I have decided I don't mind this though it is very different from most shorts. I do appreciate that there are small zippered pockets although I don't know what will fit in them yet. The fit is very roomy which is terrific. Great for people with thighs. Love the different length options; got short. The material is a thicker nylon; so feels like I would want to bring them on some granite rocks at the river. But, am not sure yet how fast they'd dry. Not running material, for sure. I'm not sure yet if the belt will make it uncomfortable under a backpacking waist strap; probably. Changes I would make: The end of the belt is too long and I wish there were somewhere to tuck it. And the logo is very conspicuous and thickly embroidered on in white; wish it were flat and navy or another blue like the shorts.

2 years of these shorts 10/10[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I run, hike, climb in these shorts. I have 5 pairs that are two years old, and 4 new pairs. I ripped one pair and sewed them up so I wouldn't lose them. I've taken these shorts on several mountains, to the gym, to work, etc.

I wear these all the time[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been wearing these constantly. I wear them around the house, running errands, hiking, swimming, and even over my bib shorts when cycling. They are very utilitarian, but I can wear them to the pub or to run errands without looking like a bum. I'd like a rear pocket for my wallet but I am okay without it.
