Rated 5 out of 5 by Tworoads Vista Trekking Shorts
These shorts are very comfortable. They have multiple zipped pockets which make them great for most sports. I used them while playing golf. They wash well and need no ironing

Rated 1 out of 5 by Abcd1 I need a good pair of hiking shorts!
Lets pretend I'm a guy (I'm not) who likes to hike. I would want TOUGH shorts! Why do we girls have to put up with "girlie" outdoor clothing? The design of these shorts is good, practical. However, the fabric feels like ladies underwear! I mean, how lightweight do we need? I want tough and crunchy, not limp and insubstantial. Obviously I'm returning the shorts. But please hear me. There must be other women out there who don't want to wear underwear shorts on the trails.

Rated 3 out of 5 by krica Too large
I liked the looks and material but the smallest size is too large for me.
I am 5' tall and weigh 98lbs. I have a hard time finding clothes that fit. I wish the clothes were manufactured smaller to fit people like me.
Many years ago I used to be size 4 or 5. Now I have to find petite xsmall or size zero to have a chance. I did not shrink.

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