Rated 5 out of 5áby ShellyBean Love these shorts!!!
I bought these shorts to go on a kayaking camping tour and they were perfect for it. The lightweight fabric was cool and dried quickly. I could even wash them in the hotel sink and they would be dry by morning (which cut down on my luggage). They were comfy and soft yet rugged too. They did run a bit big in the waist so you may want to consider ordering a size down. I'm back to buy another pair in a different color!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Vermonter4Life The PERFECT pair of shorts!
I bought these in the summer and they were my go-to shorts. The pockets are large and have a zipper on the side so you can secure your smart phone, keys, money, etc. I wear these when going to the beach (they dry fast!), go to the amusement park (because of the zippered pocket) and hiking.
Buy them in every color, you won't be disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5áby 2bmoreoutdoors Not for petites who like a lower rise
I wanted to like these shorts. They reminded me of other tech hiking shorts I have & love, but have been discontinued. First I ordered my normal size with LLBean, but they fit way to big. The legs looked like a skirt & I do not have skinny legs. Sent those back ordered the next size down. They fit tighter in the leg, though not as snug as shown on the model, which I had hoped. The real problem was that I don't think they are made for petites. I'm 5 ft 3 & like my waist to sit about 1 to 2 inches below my belly button. When I wore them like that the rear was baggy. When I pulled them up so my rear fit into the shorts correctly, the waist was 2 inches above my belly button. Sent them back. Loved the lightweight material & the tech aspect of them! Hope they come back in petites & more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Greyhame Exactly what I hoped for!
These shorts are great-- lots of pockets, slight stretch, roomy, nice length. Love them! They run a little large and I ended up returning my original purchase and going with a smaller size: Score!!

Rated 2 out of 5áby BBenedict Poorly sized
These shorts are one or more sizes off what they should be compared to other LLBean products.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Trailseeker Fits very well
These shorts are great for hiking or running errands. Very comfortable. Fabric is durable but soft against the skin. Love them. Will purchase in another color.

Rated 4 out of 5áby LeaP Snagged much too easy :(
I absolutely loved these shorts. L O V E D. I wore them for a day before going on a rafting trip to make sure they didn't stretch out too much throughout the day. They do stretch a bit, so I returned and got 2 at a smaller size. I wore each one day of rafting and they both caught snags. Ughh. They just aren't sturdy enough for trekking in the great outdoors. I would buy them as everyday or traveling shorts. I even bought the pants. Which I love also. I didn't wear those other than around town so no snag issues there but I am sure if they were out hiking I would say snagging was an issue.

Rated 4 out of 5áby adventuresomemom great shorts for anytime
Love the fabric and overall fit. These shorts dry faster than the swimsuit shorts and fit better. Went kayaking in these and was very comfortable while kayaking and then dried quickly. My only complaint is the waistband is not the most comfortable fabric next to my skin - could be a little softer - and maybe not snaps. Great length so you're not showing too much when getting in and out of a boat. Love the "hang" of the fabric.

Rated 3 out of 5áby longtimeBeansCustomer Too sheer in seat
I really like the light weight and movability of these shorts and pants, especially in warm or hot weather. But after trying on the size I usually wear, I was quite dismayed to see how sheer the seat was for both the shorts and pants. Although the hips, waist, and rise were comfortable, and I could move freely in them, a quick view in the mirror showed that very little was left to the imagination. I thus tried on the next size and felt that I was far less exposed. I bought both shorts and pants in the larger size and have resigned myself to having to wear a belt (or to stitch the waistband, if I ever get around to it).
