Columbia Whidbey II Water Short

rated 4 of 5 stars The Columbia Whidbey II shorts are a fantastic pair of shorts that are quite versatile. Whether you are hiking, swimming, or playing a sport, these shorts will keep you going and keep you cool! I bought these shorts this past spring and have worn them A LOT this spring and summer! These shorts are a well-fitting and relaxed pair of shorts with an elastic waist and built-in belt. You can keep them comfortably fitting or cinch them down if the trail gets rugged or you need to dive into a swimming… Full review

Salomon Men's EXO Motion Short

rated 4 of 5 stars Great pair of shorts for running or even swimming. These are the most comfortable pair of shorts that I've ever worn for running on the trails. So light it's incredible and well designed with the pockets for gels and keys. I highly recommend getting a pair of these. Full review

Patagonia Women's Baggies Shorts

rated 5 of 5 stars These are the perfect pants for a day on the trails. I bought a pair of these to wear on one of my backpacking trips. They were a bit pricey, but so worth the price, because it was about the only shorts I wore. They are so comfortable and you don't have to worry about getting them wet because they dry pretty quick. I love these shorts!! Full review

Patagonia Men's Baggies Shorts

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These are great swim shorts. They look great and they can also be worn as regular shorts. I love my baggies. I have 4 pairs and wear them daily. They are great casual shorts and come in so many different colors. I also use them when I swim because of the convenience of them. The only issue I have with them is they do have a netting in them, but I just cut that out so I could wear underwear and be more comfortable. Full review

Salomon Women's Momentum II Tight

rated 5 of 5 stars My favorite winter running tights. I have two pair and may purchase another. Love the double layer at the knees and the length! Several things make these my go-to winter favorites: I LOVE the double layer at the knees. It's surprising how the extra layer really helps to keep those knees warm (especially on a cold day) seems like I'm not as stiff starting out when it's really cold because my knees are already warm. Very smart thinking of Salomon designers. Thank goodness for the extra length! Nothing… Full review

Patagonia Men's Strider PRO Shorts

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The first running shorts I've owned in a long, long time that don't stink after 10 minutes of use. They're cool, comfortable, and the pockets on the sides and back are great. First, the fit.... when I ordered these shorts from Patagonia Germany, I took a shot in the dark and ordered Large as that's what I normally wear but it's always hard to tell in American sizing. In any case, they fit great! I'm primarily an endurance mountain biker, therefore I have big legs and a rather muscular butt. Often,… Full review

Patagonia Women's Speedwork Tights

rated 4 of 5 stars Good Buy! Love these pants, great for running in the cold fall days. They run a little on the small side. Full review

Patagonia Women's Baggies Shorts

rated 5 of 5 stars Patagonia's Baggies are my go-to, do it all shorts. They are lightweight, breathable, packable, abrasion-resistant, water-resistant, quick drying nylon shorts. The DWR treated Baggies sport a 5" inseam, two quick drain pockets with mesh in the bottom, and a stretchy elastic waistband with tie. I hike, kayak, wakeboard, play tennis, jog, work out and do just about everything in these shorts! If I had only one pair of shorts, these would be the ones. Patagonia has been making these for years and are… Full review

Patagonia Women's Strider Shorts

rated 3 of 5 stars Great material, but for women with bigger buns this may sit too low. I know they advertise the inseam with this short, but the rise in the back isn't as high as I'd prefer. I'm a 10-12 and this felt like I wanted to pull them up or they'd ride down when running. I really like the material, but for curvy women, this may not be the best fit.  Full review
