Last year's shorts were too small for me. This year's shorts are PERFECT (I didn't lose weight ... unfortunately). The front pockets are nice and deep, so I can shove my huge phone into them. And the small zippered pockets on the sides are perfect for keys, driver's license, etc. Very pleased with these shorts!

Rated 3 out of 5 by dorkweed Shorter Inseam Please
I love the material of these shorts and the way that they wick while being worn. I just wish that they had a shorter inseam to make them more modern and attractive looking. I feel like I am wearing my mom's shorts every time I wear them as they are so long and frumpy looking.
Just two inches shorter without having to hem them myself would make them perfect!!! Or have them come in petite sizing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NYinPgh AWESOME!
I LOVE these shorts-lightweight, wicking, quick-drying, and comfortable...love all the extra pockets. I ordered a 16-my usual size; they fit beautifully, but I like things a little roomy so if you want really snug, I'd probably order a size down. Otherwise try your usual size.
I'm going to order another pair, & will be living in these all summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FavLLB Super comfortable
Love the material and fit of these shorts. Super light and super comfortable. Perfect for outdoor play, walking, hiking, beach, and going out and about.
For me, they ran big in the waist (size 18). I reordered a size 16 and could have possibly went another size smaller but stayed with the 16. Would like to see them with a length 1" longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bree2015 Great shorts!
Love these shorts. I haven't bought shorts this comfortable in years. I don't get the negative reviews about them being lightweight. To me if it's warm enough to wear shorts, lightweight is good. They are cool on a hot day for sports, hiking, gardening or just to hang out. I love the zip pockets as well as the deep side pockets and the length is just right as I am short. I'm going to get another pair. Definitely recommend to anyone.

Great pair of hiking shorts for summer. Lightweight and breathable and they stretch! I was kind of in between a 2 and a 4, but went with the larger size. This type of fabric will shrink a tiny bit if you toss it in the dryer. I like the design on the back booty area..makes the tush look nice! Thank you LLBean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bangori I have them all.
Bought a couple pair of these Vista Trekking Shorts last year. They are super. Especially like the zipper pocket for my cell phone. This season, I purchased the remaining colors. They are comfortable, wash and wear well. Fantactic!

Rated 2 out of 5 by PoeOfCO PLEASE, LL Bean, Make these in Women's Sizes!
This is more of a note to LL Bean than anything else... PLEASE, start making hiking shorts in this same style/fabric in women's sizes. There are those of us who are larger who hike and are active and want appropriate gear. I'm only aware of one brand that makes hiking gear for larger ladies, and it's of horrible quality and fit. These shorts, as best I could tell, would be fantastic in larger sizes... they just need a bit of wiggle room that wasn't there in these shorts in this size for my body.
As for the shorts themselves, the quality seems great, they have many, appropriately sized pockets for items that may be needed while out, and the shorts are a great length, hitting just above the knee on my nearly 5'4" body. I'm just sad that I couldn't keep them to truly test them out.
The shorts themselves seem 4-5 star, but I'm only giving 2 because companies need to stop with the size-ism that runs rampant in active clothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by amwil Wonderful shorts!
These shorts are great! I have the tan and the grey ones. They are comfortable, breathe well on hot summer days, and wash and dry with no ironing necessary. I love the variety of pockets, and the front slash pockets are nice and deep.
I did, however, size up for the best fit.
