Rated 3 out of 5 by Elvisina Nice, but the side pockets could be larger
I needed something that will allow me to safely stow a smart phone when we're at amusement parks and other places where carrying a purse isn't convenient. These shorts work, but it's a tight squeeze. If the side pockets were just a centimeter larger vertically, they would be perfect. My husband never has this problem because manufacturers realize that men don't carry purses and they design clothing accordingly. I think many women would appreciate having larger zippered pockets because carrying a bag during active pursuits can be annoying. Also, having a key clip in one of the front pockets would be handy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sneakers2005 Nice and Light weight
This is the most comfortable and light weight fabric in a pair of shorts that I have ever owned. I live in the desert southwest and it will work perfectly for our hot summers. Very happy with the quality and fit.

Nice fabric for travel. Love them for walking and even for golf. Lightweight fabric with stretch. I have a stocky more muscular build and need stretch in the waist and these fit the bill. I'm 5'1" and 140# and got a size 6 which fit great. Got all of the colors (although the sandstone is not as shown, which is too bad; I may send them back).

Rated 5 out of 5 by tangy comfortable, light weight
You can do anything in these shorts, run, hike, yoga, work out in gym and still look great so then you can go out to eat. had to order 2 sizes down from my regular size which is a 10 sometimes I can wear an 8. I have small hips. THe size really depends on how you are shaped. Mine is more of an smaller lower and wider upper. I had the help of a customer specialist when I returned the one and he helped me decide on the size that fits. He was correct and these shorts are great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GlobalGirl3 Great activity shorts for hot, humid climates
These are great shorts especially if you live in a hot climate and/or like softer, more light weight fabrics. I have two pairs of these, one since mid-2015, the other since mid-2014. Both have held up well. The legs of the newer ones are slightly more tapered but still space to move which I prefer. The fabric is thin and cool which is perfect for the hot climate in which I live. If I were hiking in the Rockies, I would want a sturdier fabric like the Comfort Trail (that are just too hot for me in Southern Africa). I have worn these Vista shorts camping and around town. The pockets are great. If you are traveling, they pack up very small and dry fast. I'm hoping they come up with a pair in a walnut color too.

The shorts fit and had nice pockets. The material, however, was see-through. I couldn't not only tell what type of underwear I was wearing, but the color. I sent the shorts back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MemereW Vista Trekking Shorts
A size 6 was noticeably larger than a previous purchase ; and the waist didn't have the inside adjustment of the other. But the fabric and color and length were fine. All in all, I will keep them but wear them a bit lower on my waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BabaAZ Very comfortable Fit!
I bought this item to wear for golfing and hiking. I wore it recently for golf and it was very comfortable. The size I bought was true to my normal size. The legs are long enough. I do not like shorts that do not cover a lot of my legs. It laundered very nicely.
