Recent Short/Skirt Reviews

prAna Stretch Zion Short

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Nice material, good length, lots of pockets, definitely has the stretching feature, which is the main selling point. Prana has a good name, and they somewhat live up to it with these. Construction is good, but they do have a lot of stitching.  The stretch fabric seems good quality.   They have 6 pockets, including 2 zippered side pickets on the same side which I find uncomfortable due to the rigid zippers which cannot be unzipped with one hand.   In addition they run large, so 28 means 30 waist,… Full review

Patagonia Happy Hike Skort

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent hiking skirt for men and women. Lightweight, quick dry, and room to move. Pockets and drawstring are a big plus. Size XL. Weight 160g (5.6 oz) without boy short, 228g (8.0 oz) with boy short. Length is 39.4 cm (15.5 in) from top of waistband to hem. This is a great unisex skirt/skort. The Happy Hike skirt should attract women and MEN adopters for backpacking, hiking, and striding use. The drawstring and pockets are BIG pluses. The waistband is comfortable when using a backpack hip belt. Full review

prAna Men's Mojo Short

rated 5 of 5 stars Comfortable, versatile, light, dries fast, well made. The short is very simple, which I find to be a good thing.  One of the best buys I have made.  I use these every day in the summer. I climb with them as the elastic band is non constrictive.  Sometimes I run with them.  They have two front pockets and a back one.  They are also comfortable to wear over tights if climbing in winter.  They dry fast, but are non adjustable.  I have had them for years and they show no signs of wear.  Full review

Pearl Izumi Pursuit 7" Shorts

rated 4 of 5 stars Stretchable, breathable, transfer dry shorts are great for running, hiking, or the gym. Supportive inner liner for comfort. Whether you are running, hiking, or just working out in the gym you can't beat the comfort of Pearl Izumi Pursuit shorts. Available in 3-, 5-, and 7-inch inseam lengths, Pursuit Shorts offer a lot of comfort in a lightweight package. Constructed from polyester and elastane they have just the right amount of stretch while providing excellent breathability and the ability to… Full review

Under Armour ArmourVent Trail Short

rated 4 of 5 stars These shorts excel as the temps rise, with no riding, no chafing, and no cause for excessive sweating. The hybrid waistband stands out as simple technology that makes these shorts not only highly comfortable, but also highly practical. Conditions: I’ve worn these shorts repeatedly for three months during a rather hot and humid summer with temps regularly above 90°F (32°C) and humidity levels northward of 80%. I’ve hiked, paddled, swam, mountain biked, climbed, and even played a pick-up game… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Elkommando Kilt

rated 5 of 5 stars Great for warm weather hiking or backpacking. But could use more belt loops. Also needs a right hand side slash pocket—now if you put something in the slit where you expect a slash pocket it just falls to the ground. Needs a velcro reinforcement of the modesty snap, or an even stronger fastener. After a 5-day backpack on the Pacific Crest Trail in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State, I can say that this hiking skirt is definitely better than shorts for warm weather. That is, you get good… Full review

Skhoop Alaska Long Down Skirt

rated 5 of 5 stars I never would have guessed a skirt could be warmer than pants, but it is! Having evaluated this Skhoop Long Down Skirt in Patagonia, Argentina, I learned this goose down filled skirt is something that will block wind and keep you warmer than pants! A skirt will trap heat with minimal surface area (one tube) to exchange heat with the cold, whereas pants (two tubes) have more surface area, thus more area for cold to take over. (Ask an engineer versed in thermodynamics.) I found the long skirt useful… Full review

Skhoop Gretchen Windstopper Mini Skirt

rated 4 of 5 stars SKHOOP's Gretchen may draw you in with its good looks, but it's not a skirt to take lightly. A flattering insulated skirt, the Gretchen provides an extra layer of warmth in the backcountry and incorporates side stretch panels for easy layering and unrestricted movement. This skirt is worn comfortably hiking, snowshoeing, backcountry nordic skiing, and around town. While I could certainly survive in the backcountry without it, I've found myself bringing it along, unwilling to part with it, on many… Full review

The North Face Class V Trunk

rated 5 of 5 stars I own four pairs of these shorts. I'm a big fan. These shorts fit true to size and have a nice built-in liner. It's nice and comfortable, unlike the liners of shorts from some other brands that I've worn. The shorts rest a couple of inches above the knee, and they are comfortable when moving. They work well in activities ranging from running to swimming. A drawstring helps keep the shorts tight in the water. The shorts dry pretty quickly—maybe 15 minutes in the sun or 30-45 outside of the sun. Full review
