I love these shorts. They are lightweight and travel well. Perfect for hiking and DisneyWorld. I love all of the pockets and the zipper pocket is perfect for holding a credit card, ticket, and a fast pass or two. They wash well and air-dry quickly. They fit nicely, but if you are between sizes and plan to use the pockets, go for the bigger size. Mine were a little snug with my phone in the pocket (I wear size 2-4 and my shorts are a 2).

Love these shorts
These are my favorite day and hiking shorts by far. Have been wearing them for years. I especially love them for hiking the AZ mountains because of their lightweight but rugged fabric. The nylon allows me to slide on the rocks. Also the length of the shorts (mid to high thigh) gives my legs freedom to move. Lots of deep pockets but since the shorts seem to run tight for the size, i cant stuff too many things inside. If i do, the shorts buldge and tend to ride up in the inside thigh. Another reason i really like these shorts is that they are more slimming than other most shorts for curvy women. I wear siz 12-14, for instance. The fabric and cut of the pockets help in this area. I hate paying so much for shorts but the shorts are so great that i find the cost worth the investment.

I love these shorts! Very comfortable and the quality is obvious. In my opinion they tend to run a bit small. I wish they had my size in more colors. I wore these to a amusement/water park and they kept me cool but also dried very quickly. Great purchase!

Perfect length, flattering fit
I love these shorts! I have three pairs and may order a fourth color. They are well made, very light-weight, come out of the wash beautifully, and air dry quickly. (I haven't put them in the dryer but I'm sure you could.) They are perfect for being active (read sweaty) outdoors in hot weather and will be great for for traveling. I really dislike pockets with flaps and buttons, so I love the angled pockets with velcro and zip closures. I'm a 49 year old grandmother, 5'4", size 6. Most shorts are too long and look ridiculous on me, as do really short shorts or ones that are low slung on the hips. These are perfect.

Wife's Favorite Summer Short
I recently purchased a pair of Royal Robbins Backcountry Shorts for my wife. She absolutely loves them. She has requested that I purchase another pair in a different color. They are lightweight, comfortable, versitile, quick drying and very well crafted. All this and the security pocket make them a great summer travel short.
