Sport Kilt Men's Hiking Kilt

rated 5 of 5 stars Traditional Scottish kilt styling in material suited for trekking, hiking, and walking. Material dries quickly. Cooler and reduces chaffing. Wear at home or on the trail. Great for men and women. Enjoy wearing my Sport Kilt Hiking Kilt. It is a neat design with a wrap with velcro waist, traditional pleated kilt. Size XL with 18" hem weighs 320 g (11.3 oz). Customized mine with pockets, belt loops, and sown in pleats. The pockets easily hold an iPhone 6. Glad it is a skirt design, where I get to… Full review

Patagonia Baggies Skirt

rated 5 of 5 stars Great unisex hiking or running skirt. Skirt allows you what to or NOT to wear beneath for activity. Great baggies material with flat waistband plus drawstring. Baggie Skirt is one of the best new Patagonia products in a long time! This skirt is ideal attire for backpacking, hiking, running, trekking, and walking. It is my new morning striding bottom. Baggie skirt is perfect for working out on our ranch, sharing a morning cuppa, running errands, and computing in my home office. This product will… Full review

Patagonia Quandary Skirt

rated 5 of 5 stars Great fabric, nice cargo pocket, good fit, right length. Quandary Skirt’s fabric and style will win you over — soooo comfortable! It is a great walking, running, hiking, backpacking, trekking, town, work, home, and much more wardrobe addition. This skirt quickly became my regular for working in my home office, on the tractor cutting brush, during early morning exercise walking, and while enjoying lunch on the front porch. This skirt should attract women and MEN adopters for backpacking, hiking,… Full review

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

Mountain Hardwear Elkommando Kilt

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great product for summer hiking and unrestricted movement. I wore this on the AT this weekend and loved it. However, you do get a few looks and some comments. Do not worry and come up with some snappy comebacks. As for the fit, I ordered a large and my waist is a 35-36 and it fit just right. However, if I gain any more weight they will be really tight. It has an adjustable belt but there is not much adjustment in the waist. It appears waterproof/resistant but I have not worn it in the… 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

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
