Rated 5 out of 5 by Sneakers2005 Perfect for hot weather
This is my 2nd pair of shorts I've ordered and if it were up to me all of my shorts would be made from this fabric. Light weight and cool. I just love them. Glad I gave them a try. I also ordered two pairs of mens shorts for my husband. He finally agreed to give them a try and he is just as thrilled as I am since we live in a hot climate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NCPetiteGal Nice shorts but sizing runs large
I have read some reviews of these shorts that indicates people had to size up. Not so for me. I ordered the smallest size offered (2), and they are hanging off me. I have other Bean shorts in 2 and even older ones in 4 that fit more snugly, so there has definitely been some size inflation over the years. If these came in 2 Petite, I am sure they would fit me better. Other than that, they are remarkable shorts: comfortable, lightweight, stretchy, and good-looking. Perfect for a day on the trails. Please consider offering these in Petite sizes for we smaller, active women!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NYinPgh love them-comfy and roomy
I LOVE these shorts-lightweight, comfy, & roomy. I don't have skinny legs, so that may be why, but I think they're perfect & move well.
Will probably buy another color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bjcard Love these shorts
Love these shorts and slacks. I have 3 pairs of slacks and with this order I now have 7 pairs of shorts. Live in Florida and these are light weight. If get caught in rain storm they dry quickly. I live in the shorts. Wish they had capris in this style and material. I did have to order up one size but small price to pay for this comfort. You will not be sorry if you order these shorts. Love the fact they pack small because of the material. Nothing negative to say about these. If they ever do capris I will be ordering them also.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BirdWatching Very comfortable
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.
