Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shorts ever! These shorts are great for all-around wear as well as hiking and climbing-the waist is adjustable, fabric stretchy, light and them!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Feels nice but not durable They feel very nice, and the design make them great for moving around. I am able to sit in a squat or do very high steps without feeling any restricstions. Sadly the thread started coming apart between the legs after only 2 weeks of casual use. This is very disappointing as they should be alot more durable, especially if they are to be used for climbing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice cut, soft materials Like the Credo pant these shorts fit a smaller male with a good cut and soft materials. I haven’t had them long enough to see how they hold up but happy so far.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice shorts, bad belt Wore them a week casually and the integrated belt tore out. It's sad that at this price I need to waste my time going back 40km to the store to get refunded. I wonder how many minutes the belt stitch would have last if I had climbed with them... nice design but poor execution.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable shorts I bought these a month ago and they've been very comfortable. I have a 30" inseam and they go down just below my knees. I like the hook waist adjustment, but it would bunch up if you had to use the smallest hook slot option. The stretch is nice and they look good. The fly is too small, meaning that the zipper is not long enough to be used easily. I'd recommend making future models with a longer zipper/bigger fly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome to climb in I have bought two pairs of these a month ago. They have a great fit and seem durable. The button seems to have stretched out a little, but overall great shorts

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice fit and fabric, disappointing flaws Nice weight fabric with some stretch and a longer inseam led me to purchase these. Sadly the integrated belt pulled right out the first time I tried them on. Figured I’d still be able to wear with a belt but the first two belt loops on either side of the button are too far around the side, so your belt ends up riding up above the button and waistband. Disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but... I have a few pairs. I love the fit, style, and versatility of these shorts. I have also experienced the issue of the belt bar tack ripping through the waistband fabric on every pair I own. One would be a fluke, two bad luck. The same failure on five pair is a design flaw.
