Recent Hiking Short Reviews

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

Outdoor Research Men's Ferrosi Shorts

rated 5 of 5 stars By far the most comfortable hiking shorts I have ever worn. I live and hike in the White Mountains of New Hampshire and have worn these on every trip this summer. The 4-way stretch material allows for full range of motion and is also very comfortable against my skin. It also drys quickly after a rain storm and does not feel clammy on humid days. The shorts go to the tops of the knee which I find to be the perfect length.  When deciding what to wear during a triathlon that consisted of biking (both… Full review

Columbia Battle Ridge Short

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, quick dry nylon shorts great for hot, humid days. Also works well for canoeing and fishing where you might get wet and what to dry off fast if you do. Demonstrates the quality that Columbia normally builds into their "active" line of clothing. Columbia's Battle Ridge shorts can be found at most department stores, mine came from Belk on sale for $29.  They are made of nylon with polyester mesh pockets, with two inseam lengths - 9 inches and 11 inches.  Two front pockets and two back… Full review

The North Face Men's Paramount Cargo Short

rated 4 of 5 stars Quick dry nylon shorts are good for a wide variety of outdoor activities. I like the lightweight material, the pockets, and the belt and belt loops that comes with these. The fabric does a nice job repelling light rain and spray, and the front pockets have mesh so they drain quickly. A nice pair of shorts from The North Face These shorts were a birthday gift that I have worn quite a bit this summer.  I was looking for an alternative to the running shorts I usually wear for hiking, and my wife found… Full review

Craghoppers Basecamp Shorts

rated 3 of 5 stars The Craghoppers Basecamp are a well constructed pair of lightweight hiking/walking shorts for the budget conscious outdoor enthusiast. They feature a dwr finish, are fast drying, and have ample storage, and provided the fit is right, they provide an excellent value. According to Craghoppers, the basecamp are their entry level shorts which are constructed from Solar-shield (UPF 40+) Polyester cotton with a part elasticated waist for a great combination of  comfort durability and protection. They… Full review

The North Face Men's Paramount Cargo Short

rated 5 of 5 stars Bought an earlier version of these shorts in 2002. Have put them through all kinds of abuse since then. They are still going strong and the Velcro is only now starting to lose its grip. Great all around hiking shorts that will stand up to briers and scrapes that would send lessor shorts to the rag bag. I bought these shorts on sale at Macy's of all places in 2002 for $45; not realizing I would still be stuck with them 11 years later. Fortunately I chose a color I like, grey, and my size, medium,… Full review
