Style and function
I love these shorts! They are the most flattering thing I’ve ever worn hiking! This is a big deal for me because I’m quite active and enjoy a variety of outdoor sports but I hate sacrificing femininity and style for function: a sacrifice I don’t have to make with these! I am 5’2 and 104 lbs and ordered the XS. They are snug but not uncomfortable due to the stretch of the fabric.
Perfect more than just hiking
I originally waffled between sizes, but ended up staying true to the hip size note in the size chart and went with a M over a L. This ended up working perfectly for me after feeling the slight stretch overall in the fabric. As the other review mentions, the design is so thoughtful - I especially like the elastic back waist but flat front, which make these great for wearing out and about in the city (which I've done many times) as well as on the trails. So cute and comfortable - I love these shorts!
I'm 5'9 and about 135 lbs and was between a S and M so I ended up getting and keeping both! This material is insanely smart - I was falling and slipping on all kinds of dirt and snow on Mt. Hood recently and was shocked at how unscuffed and clean these still looked by the end of a long day hike. The thoughtful design is wonderful, from the sneaky hidden size tags (refreshing) to the fact that the back pocket on the right doesn't have a button so you can slip your phone in with ease, while the other has one if you need it. Cannot recommend these enough - which is why I had to keep both sizes :)
Love the Color and Fit
First off, the Jasper color is perfection, I'm offically living in this color all summer. I love the fitted waist with the elastic in the back for plenty of flexibility while scrambling up a mountain or when I occasionally get the annoying belly bloat. Pockets are deep enough to have my phone in, nice to have that back button for extra security. Length is very flattering and you have enough coverage to prevent chafing.
