Great shorts

Super comfy, stretchy, material. Feel great on.

Great hiking short

Love these shorts. Super comfy, stretchy material.


Absolutely love these shorts. Bought the longer version and fell in love and now I have the shorter version. Oh so happy. These are incredibly comfortable attractive and flattering. I love the lightweight and breathability. I’m a person who is always hot and these don’t contribute to that. Please continue to make these

Awesome shorts.

Super comfortable with great stretch fabric for free movement.

Excellent Hiking Shorts

I love these shorts for just about everything. Work, travel, hiking - they're great. Fit well and feel soft. Dry really quickly and are lightweight so great for travel.

The trousers were so good I got the shorts as well

I've had the trouser version of these for a few weeks and I've been so impressed that I got the shorts as well. They are really cool and lightweight with a comfy stretchy fit. So great if you are very active and don't want shorts that chafe or pinch at the waist when you bend.

Second pair

Bought a second pair. Became one of my favourites when camping/hiking. I like quick-drying fabric and little vents at the back as it helps keep your body dry when hiking a lot. Size wise, it's ok but will exchange them for a smaller size, to be the same as my old ones.

Nice material, too low rise and tight

I ordered a size L (being about a 12 on the bottom) and was sad to see these shorts were just too tight in all the wrong places. Look great from the back but the front is not the same story. Really nice material and well made but definitely size up or try on first.

Great walking shorts

I bought these shorts for a holiday. There is good stretch in them making them great for walking

Unflatteribg fit and fabric

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase

Went on a 11 mile walk to day in there and it was very hot and muggy. These stayed cool all day long and are so comfortable to wear as they are stretchy. Perfect for the 30 or so stiles I had to climb over! Well done decathlon!
