Great shorts

Use these for mtb riding. Really light & comfortable. Plenty of stretch for comfortable riding. Order one size larger than normal (I’m 32” waist but require to order size large.) Thigh pocket perfect for mobile phone. Also great just for walking around too.

Comfy, light, a little tight, cheap and cheerful.

Dirt cheap and fine for the price. Normal size is verging on (to quote another reviewer) 'obscenely tight'. Size up if an 'in betweener' otherwise the stretch still leaves them comfy (very soft elasticated waist band). Quality 'good enough' - stitching & details a tad rough and ready but you can't expect Arc'teryx standards for the money and it's more than good enough. Stretch means they work well in active uses, including over a padded liner for bike use. Very comfortable. Slightly more durable fabric on the bum for sitting but the yoke is still super stretchy so doesn't pull down if bending. Velcro helps prevent the waist popper 'unpopping': simple but effective detail. Dries quickly.

Great style

Sadly had to return as sizing is smaller than expected. Ordered an alternative in XL rather than L which was perfect. Orders arrived very quickly as did my refund! Great value & service

Nice style

Returned first order as the large was very neat. Reordered XL which was perfect for my son who is a slim 6ft 5” & normally is a large. Great value, looks great

Rip constantly at seams

They don't make stuff like they used to. I've sewn the inner seams several times on these shorts and they still fall apart. Also the mesh pockets rip to easily cheap fabric at an expensive price. I'm a postman and walk 12 miles a day. Had to buy shorts from another UK retailer since these aren't fit for purpose anymore

Very light and comfortable.

I own a pair of the trousers these are based on and was not disappointed with the shorts. They are very light and comfortable and the stretch element of the material is just right. A difference to the trouser is the additional elastic waist band which in my opinion is a bonus.

Light and good

Lightweight, stretchy and good length. Bizarre combination of velcro and popper at waist. Pockets a bit shallow for my liking but zipped pockets are in good places. I got these for cycling and they are light and have enough stretch at thighs and above knees for this purpose. Overall I'm impressed but you will need to size up. I'm a 32inch waist in every other pair of trousers or shorts but the 32 in these were obscenely tight!

Good Stretchy Hiking Shorts

Good shorts made from stretch soft shell style fabric. Good pockets - 2 with zips, 2 without Sizing is pretty accurate.

New shorts

Nice stretch shorts, feel a little tight, and the belt is a bit of a faff, but not a bad product.
