Rated 2 out of 5 by RemoteCustomer Nice material, oversized cut
I really wanted to like these shorts, but I just can't. The material is nice, the construction is decent quality, but the cut is just way too generous. There is a lot of excess material on the legs and backside of the shorts. The result is that it makes your body look like you are heavy in the middle and the fit in the back is less than flattering. Sending them back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mainefamily6 My husband asked for another pair!
I purchased these years ago for my husband, he recently let me know that he'd like a few more pairs. He works outdoors, can wear them in the heat in the gulf of mexico, swimming with kids, dress them up with a nice shirt. They have held up well (he has them in navy) and I will make sure to get him another pair for Christmas, and then his birthday, and Father's Day...

This is the forth pair of these trail shorts that I have purchased. What more can I say. Excellent pair of shorts from the fit, to comfort, to extremely well made. The only down side is, if you wear them to play golf your, tee's will get stuck in the mesh front pockets. They are still a five in my book.

These lightweight shorts are a great invention! They're so lightweight I had to check twice to see if they were in my travel bag! Travel light my friends!

The most comfortable shorts I have ever owned. I wear them around the house all the time. Great in hot weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by USQShopper Comfortable, looks good; pockets need improvement
I like the look and feel of these shorts, but the cargo pocket velcro closing should be more secure. It is hard to keep these pockets closed, and the upper pockets are too shallow to hold a wallet securely, so the wallet is exposed in either pocket. (NEVER put your wallet in your back pocket!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barry Great addition to the outdoor clothing offering
My favorite daily summertime wear. Very comfortable. Well designed and well made. I hope you come out with a long pants version for additional versatility.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MattK Love the shorts. I need a belt
I love the Trail shorts. They are comfortable, and the gusset makes them good for both hiking and as baggies over cycling lycras. They shed moisture VERY well. I actually spilled a glass of ice water on them and they were bone dry in no time. I like the fit and the inseam length. I tried on theTrail and also the Timberledge shorts. I like these shorts better, but I like the belt that comes with the Timberledge shorts. You do need a belt of some sort with these shorts. The elastic waist helps give a snug fit, but they will fall down if you carry a wallet and keys but don't wear a belt. If the Timberledge belt was available as a separate item, I would buy one of those and one of each color of Trail shorts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TheMidwesterner Shallow Pockets
These are good shorts overall - they would have been great except for the hand pockets, which are too shallow.
These pockets will just barely completely hold a 5-inch smartphone in a rugged case. When you stand up, be sure to check your pockets to make sure you still have everything as keys tend to find their way out. Aside from this, I really do like these shorts.
My suggestions to improve these shorts would be to make the hand pockets deeper. I would also change to a solid material for the backside of these pockets for greater comfort - leave the front mesh for drainage and quick drying. A key clip wouldn't hurt. With these fixes, I'd love to see this style also offered as long pants.
