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.

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!

Good walking shorts, Great value for money. Comfortable. They tend to come up on the small size so if ordering on line go for a couple of sizes larger than usual.

Great shorts

Nice pair of shorts at a great price. Comfortable for long walks, especially in the heat, good fit. Like the belt and pockets.

I ordered a size 14 but received a 12 and it was far too small. I think they probably come up small

Ok but not fantastic

They ride up and bunch around the groin area and go swish swish when I walk. They have been ditched from hiking gear, but they are very comfortable and lightweight with a good bit of stretch so are my favourite climbing shorts.

Great Shorts but Strange Sizing

The problem I experience with all the shorts and trousers I ordered is the sizing. Extra small is too tight. I can just about get them over my thighs but doing them up is a different matter! So I ordered small and you could fit two of me in the small size!!! Sizing issue aside the shorts are great, comfortable (they should be given how loose they are!), stayed dry in extreme conditions and look good too.

Moisture wicking tests

The fabric's ability to wick away perspiration and keep you dry is measured according to several criteria: the absorbency of the fabric, the ability of the fabric not to saturate with sweat, speed of drying, etc. Level 1/5 is suitable for activities of low intensity or not generating a lot of sweat. All our hiking shorts have a performance rating of 3/5.

Our design team is based at the foot of Mont Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, our designers create and develop products that are beautiful, simple, and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field, as we remain convinced that only through rigorous testing under real world conditions, like the ones you will be using them in, can we continue to provide you with better products than ever.
