Women's Happy Hike Shorts is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorites I love these shorts. Very comfortable, light weight, and actually have a decent pocket size for women's pants. I was apprehensive reading earlier reviews, but I went with my normal size and they fit fine. I am 5'5" 120 lbs, and the size 2 fit great. I will probably get another pair in a different color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorites The material is outstanding! So much stretch and the colors are true to what is pictured online. They dry quickly and have enough length to reduce chaffing that could happen on long hikes - although I could personally go for an inch shorter. I'm 5'6", 120 and have a lean build. I bought the size 2 and wear size xs in the reg baggies. There is no awkward or too tight fit in these shorts for me (not tight around my thighs like the other reviews). The waist has a nice cinch on the inside that can be used to close up any gap that could happen in the back due to difference in bum and waist size. Can't wait to take these on a multi-day!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware if ya have a booty! I really wanted to like these shorts. But, per usual, my butt/thighs won't let me have any Patagonia bottoms. I ordered a size 4 (in other brands, I wear anything from a size 2-4). I'm 5'2, about 125#, athletic build (small waist, bigger butt). I ran into the same problems with the Strider Short. In the small I was bursting out of the built in brief, waist fit perfectly. In the mediums, the entire shorts were completely falling off of me. Same for the Barely Baggies. Now for these I was hoping to get lucky. I didn't. Skin tight around the butt/thighs, and I could pull out the waist like 2 inches. I'm sure a 2 would fit in the waist, but they would literally be SKIN tight everywhere else. If you have the opportunity to try these on somewhere in store before ordering, I highly recommend it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No more happy hikes... I bought my first pair of Happy Hike Shorts last year and loved them to pieces...wore them multiple times each week and they held up to multitudes of activities and washings. I was looking to add some new colors to my collection this year. However, the fit of these shorts is very different than my previous pair. While the waist fits the same, the openings are uncomfortably skin-tight around my thighs. I have toothpicks for legs and nearly always have issues with shorts and pants being too loose around my thighs and calves, never ever too tight...until these. For reference I am 5'8", 125# and ordered a 4. The one nice modification this year is the button closure instead of the snap closure, as the snaps on my previous pair are beginning to wear down the fabric.
