Best casual/active shorts I own
I have 3 pairs of these shorts. The material is ultra comfortable and light and the cut is form fitting which I love. The sizing is perfect as I’m a medium through and through. The length is perfect for me just above the knee.I’m 5’11” tall and 80kg. They look smart too so are very versatile. Some people are complaining about the pockets. They seem fine for the essentials. If people want more pockets then they should go for cargo shorts. The simplicity of these shorts is one of the reasons I highly recommend them.

Product was returned. The small size would have been equivalent to almost a men’s 34 size. Yes they have an inbuilt belt, but drawing it that much pulled them out of shape

I don’t wear them due to the pockets .
A shame ... I havnt liked these shorts at all for one reason .

My issue is the location of the pockets . Items you place inside the pockets end up in front of your thigh , I’m used to pockets that keep the contents to the side of the leg . When I walk in these with things In the pocket especially anything bulky or sharp like keys it sits very uncomfortably in front of the leg .

Light and comfortable!
Awesome shorts. Light weight and comfortable. Great for active pursuits. Perfect for free flying, nice close fit that doesn’t get caught in harness zips. Safe pockets!

The best shorts
Fantastic shorts, very comfortable and lightweight. Far works well and quick drying. Only gripe is no back pocket.

Need more design work
I recently purchased a pair of trekker shorts to wear whilst hiking 3 Capes Track in Tasmania. The fit and feel is fine, but their is a design issue with the pocket zippers. When zips are closed, they are positioned right on the hip, just wear a hiking pack waist band sits. This caused rubbing and a pressure point just where its not needed.

My suggestion would be to inverse the zip to avoid this issue. Zipper pockets are great, but I had to leave them open when wearing my pack. Less than optimal.

Maybe the design team should test your products for such simple oversights.

This is my go to short. Work and leisure this is a smart looking short that functions well in the outdoors. The stretch makes them easy to move in.

Perfect fit. An updated version I guess, of a pair I am still wearing after about 12 years. My only suggestion is that a choice of lighter colours be available. [as per my originals - beige ?]

Great comfort.
I love the comfortability of the stretchable softshell material. Great for all around walking. The freedom wearing this short is fantastic.

Excellent comfortable shorts
I love these shorts and am about to buy a second pair. They have a bit of stretch and are very comfortable. They breath well and dry very fast (I have swum in them a few times). The smart design and style means I can wear them everywhere.
