Men's Mesa™ Short v2 4.8 5 9 9
Made to last! I have two pairs of the first version (11 inch in seam) and the durability of these shorts is amazing! They have survived multi-day bike camping trips, river swims, backpacking on the AT, weekend warrior mountain biking, family trips to Disney and continual daily wear. The shorts look as new today and they did the day I got them. No picks, tears or stains, they are truly made to last! May 9, 2014
As Advertized Enjoying these shorts as they have a nice fit to them. For me (6'1''), the 31 waist, 12'' length just hit the knee which is how I like it. Usually hiking shorts are too short ... Form and function all seem good; I have not yet put them through the rigors yet but I do expect them to hold up well. April 8, 2014
Comfortable for "light" activities Recommend this product for "light" activities only, due to fabric weight and open back pockets (no closure to keep items inside). Quality looks fine and have comfortable fit. March 19, 2014
Finally The Perfect Short I have an active retail job that requires me to do heavy lifting and moving but still look presentable to customers. These shorts fit perfect, look perfect and have superb quality. Bought a second pair as soon as i saw how perfect they were for day long and daily wear. The 9 inch length is perfect for non stop movement, bending and lifting. September 29, 2013
Great active shorts. These shorts are a perfect weight and the fit is really good - these will get some serious wear! August 5, 2013
Good Shorts - but not as good as previous version These are great shorts. Extremely comfortable, lightweight, qick drying, durable, etc. Typical top-notch Mountain Hardwear quiality. However, the fit on the V2 is much larger and more baggy than the previous Mesa shorts, which were my favorites. These new ones are baggy enough that my wallet slips out from the back pocket if I'm not careful. Also, they moved the discrete zippered pocket from the right side of the right thigh to the front of the right thigh, and the zipper itself is now horizontal rather than vertical. This makes it much less functional, impossible to open with one hand and anything you put in it makes a visible bulge, which sort of defeats the purpose of the discrete pocket. What used to be the perfect ipod pocket for bikerides is now useless. Basically they took a perfect product, tried to improve it, and made it less perfect. That said, these are still the best shorts you can buy. August 1, 2013
Only shorts you need From trail running, hiking, or jumping in the river, these shorts are perfect for all tasks. Quick drying, and great mobility. June 9, 2013
Great Shorts These are a great pair of shorts. Very lightwieght fabric, with good pockets. These will even make a good pair of shorts to run in when pockets are needed before or after. May 28, 2013
Great and lightweight short I am 6'3" and a 34 waist, and these pants run a little big. Not too much, just enough to need to wear a belt. Super comfy, water resistant, and versatile. I have never owned a pair of short that are as comfortable as these bad boys. Pockets are big enough and very functional. Great product! April 25, 2013
