Marmot Hayes Cargo Short

rated 3 of 5 stars Decent hot weather hiking shorts. Wouldn't recommend them unless deeply discounted. The 34" waist was too small so I returned them for the 36" which I kept, but they are inconveniently too big. GREEN Olive. Full review

Kuhl Z Cargo Short

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Pricey but very well made hiking shorts with thoughtfully designed pockets and waist size adjustment feature. You can tell the designers really did sweat the minor details of these shorts, thus the higher price. Wish list: Shorten the inseam and use a slightly heavier cloth so the fiddly inner sash button can be eliminated; add a couple more belt loops to the waist or perhaps make provisions for suspender buttons.   I like both, the hanging hook loop sewn in next to the back belt loop and the alpine… Full review

RailRiders Jammin' Short

rated 5 of 5 stars Best pair of shorts I have ever owned. Still wear two pairs that are 10+ years old and have hiked 500+ miles. These are the best all-purpose shorts I have ever owned. I rarely wear anything else. They are lightweight, comfortable, and extremely rugged. I have spent months at a time hiking/bushwhacking in just a single pair and the only hole they have is from a stray ember during a summer bonfire. The elastic waist makes them comfortable and they fit nicely on a variety of waist sizes. They dry super… Full review

Sierra Designs Dricanvas Short

rated 5 of 5 stars These shorts have the pockets you need and the fit you want if you are serious about hiking and backpacking. They look nice, feel great, and are clearly designed with the backpacker in mind!! These shorts fit really well. They allow for a full athletic range of motion. When wearing a pack there is no abrasion or rubbing of any kind. I prefer a bottom layer to have belt loops instead of the integrated belts. I find the built in belts always get tangled and rarely remain tight. Adding my own webbing… Full review

Gramicci Men's Original G Short

Rockwater Designs Roanoke Shorts

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The shorts are quick drying. I like the top of the knee length. Great for hiking. These shorts are serving me well as I hike for 2 to 8 hours each time I go hiking. I have recommended them to my fellow hikers who belong to Chebucto Hiking Club. Full review

Arc'teryx Rampart Short

rated 5 of 5 stars These shorts are awesome! I own two pairs, but am seriously considering ordering other colors and getting rid of my other shorts. They're very lightweight, dry quickly, and fit my athletic build. I've never owned another pair of shorts that I love on a mountain or beach and look great out at dinner. 'nuff said. Full review

Mountain Hardwear Men's Canyon Short

rated 4 of 5 stars These shorts by Mountain Hardwear are very lightweight and are made with comfortable material. You don't have to worry about what comes at you in these shorts because they are easy to move around in, are quick drying, and feature mesh draining panels in the pockets. These shorts are great for time on the trail or around the campsite, especially if you know that there is a good possibility you'll be swimming or getting wet. They are so lightweight, coming in at a whopping 7.9oz (size large) and are… Full review

Outdoor Research Women's Ferrosi Shorts

rated 5 of 5 stars The most comfortable, versatile hiking shorts I own! I love these shorts! They are comfortable, lightweight, breathable, and look great on the trail! I've even had hikers stop me as we pass one another to ask where to get a pair for themselves.  OR uses a combination of spandex and ripstop material in the construction of these soft shell shorts. As a result, they are durable, lightweight, and flexible. The material wicks moisture away. Wearing my Ferrosis, I've often dipped into trailside swimming… Full review
