I cannot say enough good things about these shorts! I originally got them in preparation for a future JMT thru-hike, and now I'm absolutely addicted. They are so comfortable, I wish I could wear them all day everyday. They are the perfect length, don't ride up walking or sitting, and have convenient pockets (!!!). Other brands tend to ride up during hiking and become very uncomfortable, but these stay in place and are incredibly light and breezy. Love love love them!

Perfect length for a little junk in the trunk (me). I love regular Roga's, but they barely cover my butt. Not a problem for shorter runs, but sometimes I like a little more coverage. these are perfect! and I love the unexpected side pocket!

Great functional shorts
I love the pockets on these shorts and they're super comfortable. I wore them on long training runs and during a recent marathon and they held up well - no chafing at all and plenty of room for gels/keys, etc. They are not the most flattering shorts though, likely because of the longer length and they seemed a little wider in the legs than my other shorts.Still worth it for the comfort though!
- Pockets, comfortable
- Not the most flattering
These shorts are fabulous. I'm 5'7", 170lbs and consider myself pear shaped. I own both sizes 12 and 10, and there are some distinct differences between the two. The 12 sits perfectly on my waist, but the leg openings are quite large. Not enough to bother me, but they ARE big. The size 10 leg openings are perfect, but they don't sit as high on my waist. I'm either choosing between a slight camel toe or having to use the drawstring to keep them from sliding down on a run. Even so, these are the ONLY pair of running shorts I've ever had luck with.
- Easy transition from running miles to running errands.
Great length and function
Great short with the right length because some of us girls have hips and thighs. More importantly the weight of the fabric (not to thin) also keeps the shorts from riding up. Love the multiple pockets that zip. I am going to order a second pair because I love them for kayaking too.
- Length and fabric weight
- Need to center the back pocket.

Great shorts for long distances
Great shorts for long distances. Not the most flattering shorts. I purchased size 2; 115lbs; 5'3" I wear a 4 in Lululemon. I've run up to 18 miles in them with no issues-except they show sweat. I will stick with black. I wish the pocket was larger enough for iPhone plus.
- Light-weight and no chafing
- shows sweat
- 5’ 5”
Best shorts ever
I wore these everyday for almost 3 months on an 1100 mile section of the Appalachian trail. They kept their shape after excessive use, didn’t ride up, and only got one small rip after I accidentally walked into a sharp stick. I’m home now and I still wear them every chance I get!

Great Shorts for Any Activity!
I bought these shorts at REI having never heard of the brand before and have since fallen in love. I often have trouble finding nice looking shorts with a longer inseam that I won't have to fidget with to make comfortable, but these are perfect. These shorts are super stretching, a perfect length and come with sizable pockets that zip (which is essential!). I use them lots for hiking, biking to and from grad school, and generally hanging around.
- Stretchy, great length, zip pockets, very comfortable
