way bigger than similar size products from same br

Sizing continues to be wildly inconsitent - was way bigger than same sized products fro the same brand bought earlier. Even this time i bought 3 diff hiking/ cargo shorts - same waist size and same brand - but 2 of them were waaaaay bigger than the 3rd which fit perfectly... even when laid on the bed (buttoned and zipped) one over the other, the waist sizes were inconsistent Loved the product and have asked to be notified for a lesser size

Nice and comfortable

Very good quality fabric

What have we done to reduce our environmental impact?

The main fabric of these pants contains 62% organic cotton. We began using organic cotton in 2006, a restricted market that currently represents just 0.4% of worldwide cotton production. The cotton is grown without chemical fertilizers and pesticides. It protects biodiversity and soil fertility and reduces the risk of groundwater pollution.

A score for comparing products' environmental impact

On a scale of A to E, these shorts obtained a D rating. Our products' environmental impacts are calculated over their entire lifecycle. They receive a score so you can identify those with the best environmental performance within the same product family. Decathlon is a voluntary supporter of this environmentally-friendly labeling approach.

An improved product based on your feedback!

Based on all your feedback, we have improved the concept and design of the NH500 Cargo shorts. In this new model, we have changed the component to add spandex (3%) and polyester for greater breathability and fit.We have also widened the waist of the shorts. Finally, we have improved the cut of the shorts at the crotch.


Our hiking shorts and skorts are guaranteed for 2 years. Our commitment? To provide long-lasting products that you can use for all your hikes and strolls. Because the products we love the most are those that have shared great adventures with us and will continue to do so!



Product testing

It’s in France, at the foot of Mont Blanc, that our design team conceives, designs, and creates Quechua products. 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 go to as many different places as possible, in all weather conditions. This creates plenty of opportunities for discussions 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.
