Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not fit well I have a similar pair that I loved and these didn't work at all. They were so tight as if they were sized wrong. Great material though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! These are the best hiking shorts I've ever owned. I now have 2 pairs and have been living in them this summer. The material is durable, breathable, stretchy and water resistant. I've worn them on a dozen hikes and trail runs so far, brought them on a couple camping trips, and couldn't be happier. I really like the length and think they are flattering, and I normally hate shorts. The pockets are great too. I'm 5'6" 145lbs and I like the way the size 8 fits me. A 10 would be a bit looser of a fit, so size up if you want more room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well done I purchased these a month ago and I love them. The pockets are deep, it fits relatively well, the length is great and its nice a stretchy. I hike in these and go to town in them. The only thing is (the reason for only 4 stars) is that I keep running into an issue with your bottoms that the thighs are small in comparison to the waist. I am 4'10" 100lbs and I usually wear a 0 but have recently gone a size up in your products to accommodate the fact that I have an athletic build. I have muscular thighs and a small waist so i purchased the size 2. The stretchy drawstring is what makes these near perfect. I love this feature and without it I would have returned these shorts.I dont have any bunching with the drawstring either. Think about his though, patagonia...most athletic women in the outdoors don't have skinny little legs and a wide waist. Your products used to fit me I can't say that anymore. To others, this product is great and if you have the same issue as me, order up a size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Living in these for the summer! I purchased these shorts for hiking and casual wear. I might not take them off until summer is over. They fit wonderfully, are extremely lightweight, and hold their shape beautifully. They also dry very easily and don't wrinkle. I am 5' 6" and 120 pounds. I typically wear a size 2, but needed a size 4 in these shorts. For comparison, I have the quandary shorts in a size 2 and the stretch all-wear shorts in a size 4 and both fit great. These shorts are probably the most low-rise shorts I have ever worn, but it's not like that's a problem. At first I was turned off by how low they were, but I am glad I decided to keep them. They don't fall down or anything. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect These shorts are amazing! Very true to size, lightweight, and incredibly comfortable. I am 5'7 and 128 lbs. The size 6 fits perfect. They have relaxed a bit with wear, but still maintain shape and fit. I am sure I will be living in these shorts for the entire summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from loved everything but the color I was buying some clothes for travel and I really liked these but not the color (green). I don't like lighter colored bottoms for travel because they show dirt. It's also hard to color match shirts. Neutral colors are just a lot more versatile. Otherwise these fit well and were stretchy enough to be comfortable hiking or doing other activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for climbing I got these for indoor rock climbing and couldn't be more pleased. They are very comfortable, flattering, and are perfect for this type of activity. I've also worn them hiking. I'm 5'3", 118 lbs and the small fits perfectly. I have the shorts in nettle green and only wish that they would offer them in more colors, including black.
