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


It is good, lightweight, trendy although i prefer the 2 front pockets to be at the side bcos it will be much easier to dip into them.

Shorts for hot humid travels.

Tough. Doesn't rip easy. Breathable which was the intended purpose of purchase. Only down side is the clip belt. It doesn't hold up the shorts well if u buy a size too large. The front of the shorts will slip down with the belt left snug against bare skin.

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.

Five stars!!!

The highly stretchable fabric enables you to perform with ease in any outdoor activity. Thumbs up!

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.
