Questions & Answers

Are the shorts, true to size ?

Asked by: Anonymous
These shorts are rather firm fitting so if you prefer shorts to be a looser fit then I recommend going one size up.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No sweat Purchased a month ago, been wearing very often for my hikes and also to stay cool in them. They are very comfortable and super practical! Downside are pockets: your phone can easily fall out. And also do I think the pants could be better/stylisher looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable in both fitting and during wear. I have recently put these shorts to the test and went on a 14km hole in warm weather. I did not feel any discomfort whilst the walk or due to warm, humid conditions- no chafing, quick dry. Love the shorter length, lightness in weight and the style- the elasticised waist ensured a tailored fit to my waist line. I love these shorts so much I’m going to compliment my wardrobe with black pair!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Comfortable, lightweight shorts. Perfect for long and short walks. Following recommendation from another review, I went a size down and was pleased I did. Otherwise the shorts would have been voluminous

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The broader waist band Found this very comfortable while hiking in Kakadu National Park. There are several places where it is a steep hike and these shorts stayed in position nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More colours please! I've had 2 pairs of these shorts for a few years and they are awesome. Perfect for hiking, travel, they are quick dry and the pocket is big and stretchy enough to fit a phone. So comfortable without being baggy. I just wish they came in navy blue and a light denim blue.
