great pair of shorts

I use these shorts for all kinds of adventure such as hiking MTBing BASE jumping and so much more. They are super durable and the extra fabric on the behind area is a great extra as when hiking and scrabbling the extra protection is perfect and for this price these are just a great buy.

Very comfortable

Pleasantly suprised at the level of comfort and fit of these competitively priced hiking shorts and no rubbing on my thighs when walking uphill. So much so, that I am ordering an additional pair.

Nice pants

Good quality and comfortable

Brilliant shorts

I love these shorts and so I have them in various colours. They are really stretchy so they are great for many activities like cycling or hitting the gym. They dry really quick so they are even good for swimming. I have flexibility issues and these shorts are really light weight & flex so much that they don't get in the way. If you wanna carry stuff in your pockets then you need to wear a belt because they can fall down otherwise. I don't use the belt they come with as I prefer the under armour stretchy belts. If you're not sure on size then I'd say go a size smaller if you don't want to wear a belt.

These shorts are ideal for those with a short inside leg. Great for normal wear and holidays.

Forclaz 500 shorts

Love these shorts, had a pair before in grey, still going strong, so when I saw the black pair at only £10! I snapped them up, if this material was on cycling shorts u would pay £50 easily, 4 way stretch make them really comfortable, would be great for any sports activity. GREAT BUY.

excellent shorts

excellent pair of shorts I'm a postman and wear them every day super comfortable and dry quickly for those wet days. the only problem is i have 4 pairs and now they are starting to show lots of wear. and you don't make them anymore so can't order new pairs

Good short and good value

Short in-seam; nice stretch material. Size is very tight - I would expect normally to fit an M but the L/M was too small so I changed for L.
