Men's Mesa™ Short v2 4.7 5 13 13
Comfortable Very nice feel and seems quite durable. Wish the small pocket on the right side was bigger to hold a wallet. June 4, 2015
Great, But Needs Tweaking I manufacture boating accessories and spend a lot of time in our extremely hot factory in the summer months. I have found this material to be superior in durability and breathability than more expensive ones that stretch. When I'm not working I'm fishing. These shorts dry fast. A couple of things I'd love changed... The front pockets are a couple of inches too short and they'd be better is they were fully mesh lined. I'd like to see the front, right pocket mesh lined too (on the inside), along with the back pockets, so they could drain too. Please add at least a Velcro closure to the back pockets. The front zipper is a bit too short for easy access. The main button is bulky and uncomfortable at times. With these minor tweaks, you'll have the perfect shorts in my opinion. March 10, 2015
Best Pair of Shorts I Have Owned Fit well, look good, sturdy, light, quick-drying. These shorts can take you from the Ultimate field to the pool to Margaritas and enchiladas to late night beers on the porch. Only con is that your woman will complain because you never wear anything else. MH-- don't change these one bit. November 7, 2014
Men's Mesa Short v2 My men's Mesa Short v2 is one of the most comfortable short I have ever owned. After buying 1 and wearing them I order 2 more several days later. August 27, 2014
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
