Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and trendy Very happy with these shorts. When I first looked at them in store, I didn't like them, but when I tried them on, I loved them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever These are by far the most comfortable shorts I have ever worn. Love the fit, great for hiking as stretchable, look good dressed up or down, band takes abit longer to dry than rest of shorts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought 2 pairs for a multi day hikes. The problem I have with them is the domes at the front - on both pairs and multiple others I checked in store, the back of the dome sits proud and is sharp and rubs constantly. With a pack loaded for a 4 day hike this is the last thing you want. Much as it hurts me to say this is the first Kathmandu product I have ever been unhappy with but I could not recommend buying while they have the snap fasteners. I did not return as I felt I had kept them too long although they have only been worn a handful of times and they would probably do for around the garden at home but only with a band aid on the back of the domes or with shirt tucked in!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts Been wearing a grey pair through a hot tropical summer, and they are the best. They dry fast, are really comfy and smart in a way that hiking clothes sometimes aren’t.

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.
