Quechua  NH500 Fresh Hiking Shorts,carbon gray

great light and comfortable hiking shorts

These shorts are light, yet a very tough material. FYI, I just used them for 5 days so far. They have a light weight belt that adjusts by Velcro - great design! They have adequate pockets with one zippered. I'm slim and usually take a 32 waist, so the M was prefect (plus the adjustable belt makes for a great fit).

Nice item.

Comfortable and stylish, but some features like details could be better.

Way smaller than normal for size

They tell you that you should buy the next size up, which I did, but the pants are still very tight. Otherwise they are good pants.

Thank you for reviewing you NH500 shorts. Sorry to hear you are not completely satisfied with the fit. You are correct to go up a size for our products. These are also a fitted cut and may need an extra size. Or it might just not be the right fit. Glad to hear they were good pants otherwise.

We would be happy to exchange or refund to suit.

Smart walking shorts

Smart and comfortable. Just as good as my Jack Wolfskin walking shorts. Velcro and popper fasteners for a secure and adjustable fit.

Tight with a surprise

These shorts are tight, and not in the waist area, but the the crotch point, i always have to keep pulling them down because well they bother the boys while walking. Also, if they get wet they darken like 5 shades, which results in awkwardness after washing hands in the bathroom 9/10 times.

Great shorts.

Good fit. True to size. Comfortable for all day hiking and lots of useful pockets. Can’t fault them for the price.

label sized wrong

Wrong size stated on labels, they are a size too small, surely Decathlon know there is an issue with this, some sort of signage would help instead of only finding out when you get home..... Not impressed at all

Too small

Same size as trousers I ordered but these were too small when trousers were perfect so I returned the shorts

So many pockets.

Handy pockets, so many but don't want to weigh the shorts down!

Comfortable and practical

The price was great, and they looked good. Very comfortable to wear with enough movement for cross country walking. They also seem fairly hard-wearing which is a bonus.

Size advice

Despite the stretch component, these Bermuda shorts are small in size, we advise you to choose a size larger than your usual size.


Our hiking shorts and skorts are guaranteed for 2 years.Our commitment? To provide long-lasting products that you can use for all your country walks and strolls. Because the products we love the most are those that have a story to tell and will have more to tell in the future!

Your opinion counts!

Based on your feedback, we have improved the design and concept of our NH500 shorts. In this new model, we have changed the component to add spandex (2%) to improve your freedom of movement. The component is also lighter. We have also changed the shape of the shorts and increased the depth of the pockets to limit the loss of objects. Finally, we have improved the cut of the shorts at the crotch.

Product testing

Our design team thinks up, draws, and designs the Quechua products at the foot of the Mont Blanc, in France.We test them in the field with other hikers, to check their comfort and durability. In the Fontainebleau Forest, Brittany, or even Corsica for example. We walk on as many different footpaths as possible, in all weather conditions. This creates plenty of opportunities for discussion to get your feedback, which is used to plan our future products!

Storage instructions

We recommend that you store these shorts folded or on a hanger, in a dry place.
