Rated 4 out of 5 by Fanny Very nice, except for flared legs
I bought these along with the Vista Trekking shorts. I almost kept them as the upper fit was better. (The Trekking shorts were a little big in the waist- but did have loops for a belt.) These Comfort Trail shorts were just too flared in the legs. I am 5'1", 113#, and a size 4 was a good fit. I thought the pockets gaped a bit, too, although I thought about stitching them down. Decided that these were the ones to return.

Rated 2 out of 5 by teachertime Didn't make the grade
These shorts were very slim through the hips and legs-they felt like pants that had been cut off to make shorts. At 5'4" and 105 lb, i was not happy with the fit and returned them.

Purchased these shorts a size larger after reading many other reviews - definitely the right move. The one size up fits great, love the stretch material. Quality is excellent and love all the zipped pockets. Will buy more in other colors.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SomeReviewer High waist and baggy!
The material is very nice but the fit was strange. The waist is high and very small (felt tight to me) but the legs are extremely baggy. I wanted them to fit, but they just did not work for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MamaGrizzy Yes! Comfort Trail Shorts!
It would be hard for me to find fault with these shorts. My dog loves to take me for long walks and I had not, until now, found the PERFECT shorts for this activity. These shorts have quality, reinforced stitching, so you know that you won't need to replace them anytime soon. The 5-pockets (3 of them are zippered) are roomy without adding bulk while wearing. If you're like me, I carry my iPod, garage keys, house keys and phone while walking my dog. No more fanny pack for me! I can carry everything and be hands-free with the exception of my dog's leash. I am 50-ish, 5' 5" tall and have a bit of a tummy - it's nice that these shorts stay put when sitting, stooping, etc.. I bought a size up originally, but had to return them for a size down, which happened to be my usual size. You will like the hidden, adjustable elastic waistband and if you like to tuck in your shirt, it is lined to help keep your shirt in-place. These shorts are nice enough wear for any casual activity. I have 2 pairs and plan to buy all the remaining colors - that's how much I LOVE them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by enaidh Good fit and nice colors
These shorts are good for travel and biking. They fit a bit below the waist but are not loose as so many are. And the rise is longer than many shorts which do not fit me correctly. I usually wear an 8 or 6 in Bean pants, but I needed a 10 in these shorts. One small complaint--the care information is in Japanese and French, no English.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Grecia Excellent fabric
Very comfortable, perfect fabric for warm weather. Have pants & another pair in black, liked them so much also bought the clay shorts. Only complaint is, as with other reviewers, the pockets 'flare' Also ordered one size up as recommended, good fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Outbackwearer Great light weight yet sturdy shorts
These are great shorts, stylish and practical. I work in the outback of Australia and they are perfect for the hot days, yet are appropriately modest enough for work. Great for packing light - they can be rolled up and emerge wrinkle free. They are light weight and yet sturdy. Wash and dry quickly when traveling. Comfortable. Seemed to run small ? I normally wear a size 12, but ordered a 14 as I do not like a tight fit. ALSO I was able to buy these in January/February when no one else was offering shorts !

Be sure to order a size up -- fit is very small. I sent these back because they were too small but keep another pair of shorts the same size
