Purple Rain Adventure Skirt

rated 5 of 5 stars The Purple Rain Adventure Skirt has become one of my all-time favorite pieces of clothing for its functionality, versatility, comfort, and durability. What sets it apart from all other hiking skirts are the functional cargo pockets and a stretchy yoga-style waist band. It is the kind of garment you can eat, sleep, bathe, swim and walk thousands of miles in, never once having needed to take it off. This versatility makes it an ideal candidate for long-distance hiking and other endurance activities. Full review

Running Kilts Running Kilt

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, comfortable, freedom. I am a nature and wildlife photographer and am out in the mountains or desert at least once a week. I am in wilderness areas, national and state parks, nature preserves, etc. I enjoy the comfort and freedom of lightweight comfortable outdoor clothing. I have worn different types of running gear which are perfect for hiking, walking, driving. I wear running kilts on trails with hikers and tourists, using gas stations, stores, go to restaurants, etc. No one has noticed,… Full review

Patagonia Men's Strider Pro Short

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Nice running shorts with multiple pockets. When Patagonia first came out with the Strider Pro I was really excited as this was exactly what I was looking for in a running short for a long day in the mountains—that is until I saw the inseam—5", sorry that's just too short for my liking. It took a few years, but they now offer the Strider Pro in 7" inseam and I jumped. The shorts are very comfortable (multiple 20+ mile days with them); I was definitely a little iffy when I saw the liner—a long… Full review

enLIGHTened Equipment Rain Wrap

rated 5 of 5 stars This simple, kilt style, silnylon wrap is great for those who hate wearing rain pants because they need more ventilation. Light to carry and easy to put on, especially compared to rain pants, the wrap works best on open trails and paired with a jacket or short poncho. So often I find that getting raingear out and on before I'm soaked is a pipedream. Combined with the steamy interior I often opted to just get wet from the rain rather than bother unless it was really cold. I'd just hike faster to… Full review

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
