Rated 5 out of 5 by RescueDogMom best shorts ever
These shorts are perfect: they fit well, wash & dry easily, and above all, THEY HAVE SO MANY POCKETS! I can put my wallet, keys, and phone in these pockets and have more room (and pockets!) left over. I don't need a purse when I wear them! These get my highest recommendation.
Aside: there are capris in this same style, but for some reason the capris don't fit my body type correctly. The shorts do, though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KDS1207 Love these shorts
I have every color of these shorts available. I love them!!! Need more colors. Also why is the Vista Trekking Skirt not offered in a size 20 like these shorts are?

These shorts are awesome!! I bought them last year for a camping trip and they were so comfortable that as soon as I got home, I ordered another pair in a different color and the pants! I do find they fit big and ordered a size down. They are so lightweight that they are very cool in the tropics and dry extremely quickly. Also the perfect choice for travelling because they are so light and don't easily wrinkle! Am back to buy another pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maxinella Great fit, but they run HUGE!!
I needed a new pair of hiking shorts, and went to my local L.L. Bean Store to try some on. It's a good thing that I did, since these shorts ran several sizes larger than the comfort trail shorts/pants.
I tried on a pair of comfort trail shorts in size 10, and while they fit in the waist, they were baggy in the rear and legs. Besides, I wanted something in a lighter material. I ended up with these shorts in a size FOUR! They fit great, and were very comfortable on a recent 9 mile hike. However, there should be more consistency in sizing. If I hadn't had a store close to me, I would have spent a lot of time re-ordering shorts.
As an aside, when I spoke to someone online and give them my measurements, they suggested I order a size 12. Obviously there is something seriously wrong. I don't care what size I end up with, as long as the product fits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pottery59 Best shorts EVER!
I first purchased the Vista Trekking Shorts because I am a woman who does not carry a purse so I look for pockets. These shorts are not short on pockets! Love all of them and the fact that they zip closed for security. These are so perfect that I purchased 2 more in different colors. They really are all I wear. LL Bean's customer service is fantastic, also. When one of the zippers broke on my original pair (after about 2 years) they replaced them for free!!!! They have something called the 'Quick Exchange' that allows you to purchase a new pair, send back the old pair, and they reimburse you totally. How's THAT for service!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luv2roam best shorts, ever!
These are the best shorts I have ever owned! The fit is perfect. The fabric is so soft you feel like you could be in your pj's, and yet they are sturdy. The shorts are flattering to the figure. They dry quickly and wash up well. I just couldn't be any happier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DTCHGRL Vista Trekking Shorts
This garment is wonderful. It's lightweight, flexible, the inseam is long enough that they do not ride up, there are plenty of pockets, the length is perfect, and it fits like it was made just for me.
It is appropriate for going for a walk, doing yard work, meeting a friend for lunch, running errands, or just to look nice while staying at home. They would also make a perfect item to bring along on vacation as they weigh very little and take very little room to pack, and are so versatile.These are really a great buy.

Just got back from a 33 mile hike in Lake Tahoe... these shorts were awesome! Light weight, super comfortable, and lots of pockets that were very convenient!! Will buy another pair and highly reccomend them for any outdoor excursion!

I love the fabric these shorts are made of. It is light and comfortable but seems durable. Great combination! They are cut well for me although I could have went down a size, but they are very comfortable and don't fall off me. I appreciate the little extra room in the waist. I would love them in a few more colors.
