Rated 1 out of 5 by from Remove the belt [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love the material. The fit is too tight in a 0 which is my usual size. I wish the belt was removable. It would be perfect in a 2 if the belt came off. Why is it fixed? It has belt loops on the shorts, so if you wear your own belt now you have to wear two belts? That makes no sense. Please redesign this with a removable belt. Otherwise, I think it would be a winner if you go one size up and can take off the belt. I like the fabric and the pockets! Women's clothes with pockets are like unicorns. Almost impossible to find.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love these shorts! The side pockets are great but my favorite is the zipper pocket on the back that you can perfectly fit your phone in - easy access for hiking but comfortable enough that I forget it's there. Also, the adjustable waist is a definite perk. I bought these last summer and I am so glad they've kept them and added more colors. I've worn them on several hikes - my family lives in Colorado - and I never had any discomfort, even on the hottest day! They allow for a good range of motion - nice for when you're scrambling up rocks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight and Great Color I admit that I am still on the fence about shorts in general...they always seem to ride up as I hike, which these did, but I liked a lot of things about them. The regular inseam length was great and the fit over by backside is flattering. I wish the rise was slightly higher, so I could anchor them better to my waist line - but that may be my big hip to smaller waist ratio problem. While the included belt webbing is nice, it can only be tightened so much before the gathered fabric looks and feel off. Approximately 1-2" Because the fabric has stretch, they do run slightly big. These are super light weight and water resistant. Seem great for kayaking, canoeing, beach day, or light hiking. Orange color is perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Run large but still super cute & comfy [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Really love these shorts. Are surprisingly super flattering, my friends and my boyfriend have commented that they make the booty look 10/10. They definitely run large though. I'm normally a 0-2/25 in most jeans and shorts but the 0 in these is still at least a full size too big on my waist, though they fit comfortable in the hips. Easy to make them fit with though the belt though! So I'm keeping the 0 anyway because they still look good and stay up perfectly fine when cinched.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like them for work [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have to wear khaki shorts for my very active job and these fit the bill. Perfect material for the outdoors, stretchy, lightweight and water rolls off of it pretty easy. I bought size 8 and size 10, since I typically bounce between those two sizes depending on the brand. Both fit, but I like the 10 a little bit more because they're a little longer. For reference, I'm 5'4" 146lbs, with thicker athletic thighs #thunderthighsquad. Two things I don't like are that the belt is stitched in and cannot be removed, I have to wear a black belt for my work uniform so I literally wear a belt over the built in belt. Second thing is that I wish these had back/butt pockets, then they would be the literal perfect pair of shorts for my job. Overall, I'm glad I finally found these shorts since not many brands make khaki colored outdoor shorts for women that don't look like absolute grandma pants. So I would recommend these!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I need a back pocket [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Reviews have mentioned the deep front pockets as favorable, but a cell phone in a front pocket tends to pull the shorts down and you feel it against your thigh. A back pocket is needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I'm 5'8", 145 pounds, and I ordered a size 6 long. They fit great! I would say order true to size, but if you're between sizes order the smaller size. I would also definitely order them in long, even if you're not that tall. The long ones are still pretty short, while still covering my rear when I sit down. I love these shorts and I'm ordering them in another color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Hiking shorts [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love these shorts!! Will probably get another pair. I wear a size 6 and got a size 6. Not big, just a little loose, which I prefer for hiking. Took them backpacking and they where great! Would like at least one front pocket that had a zipper. Can't access the back zipper with a backpack on. The style is nice, very complementary to your shape.

HOW to MEASURE
WAIST: Place your hands on your hips and bend to the side. The indent on your side as you bend is your natural waist. Measure the total circumference at this point.

JEANS WAIST: Measure your circumference at a point about 2 inches below the belly button.

HIPS: Stand with your feet 6" apart. Measure the total circumference at the fullest point of your hip.

INSEAM: Stand with your feet 6" apart. Measure from the top of the leg/crotch to below the ankle. Or take a pair of pants that fit well and take the same measurement.

FIT TYPES
SLIM FIT: Slim in the seat and close-to-body throughout. A straight side seam runs through the hip and thigh. Pants will be narrow through the leg, with a moderate taper from mid-thigh down.

STANDARD FIT: Trim, but not tight, in the seat with an ease through the hip and thigh. Pants will be narrow through the leg with a moderate taper from mid-thigh down.

RELAXED FIT: Has a generous fit in the seat and is roomy through the hip and thigh. Ease through leg with a slight taper from mid-thigh down.
