Way too small

Compared with clothing I've bought from other decathlon ranges, these are far, far too small. Strong constructions and would look good if they fit. I'd guess I'm two sizes out.

Inexpensive but very good wearability. Very comfortable and hardwearing.

Light weight shorts

Got these short to ware under overall at work. Made from polyester they are very light and cool under overalls. For the price they are a good pair of shorts

Great for £7.99

I have short, chunky legs and a wholesome booty for a bloke so it's difficult to get shorts that are the right waist size without being too long. I decided to take a punt on these shorts (being so cheap) and must say that overall they are the best pair I have ever owned. They're light, which is great for me because I get hot quite easily. They're a good fit for my waist (34") but not too long - they're just above the knee on me. There's one minor problem that another reviewer also mentioned, which is that the waistband seems to lose it's elasticity after a couple of washes. But it's nothing that a belt couldn't put right and for £7.99 I decided to order another two pairs.

Great Shorts for amazing price!

Very light, doesn't stretch and dry quickly.

Forclaz Shorts

The waistband lost all of its elasticity after one day of use. The shorts are now far too big and unwearable. Otherwise the shorts seem to be fine. Decathlon just needs to fix the serious issue of the quality of the elastic. Very disappointed.


Thank you for your feedback on the Forclaz 50 hiking short. Sorry to hear about the troubles you have has with the elastic and sizing. Please drop into your local store where a member of our team will be able to resolve the issue and we can take a look at the waistband's elasticity. 

Many thanks

Super Comfy

Its very comfortable to wear for a long time. I used it for LEH where we are without washing options for 6 continuous days and everynight I used to wear this. I didn't feel the fabric getting more dust or getting irritations. It is very comfortable to wear for long duration.

not good

this product is not good not comfortable on skin it gives a sort of irritation also it feel synthetic rather than organic. it is of cheap quality and decathlon must be careful about product image and delivered product. I ordered arpenaz 50 but delivered product is much different than image shown here

Good Comfortable Shorts

The waist size and length of shorts is not proportionate. But the material is good and comfortable to wear and nice design.
