Men's Piero™ Short
I've had a pair of Piero pants for years, and I have been impressed by their comfort, function, versatility, and durability. They look good too. The shorts are the exact same, and are in fact cut with the same pockets, tool loop, and chalk-bag loop as the Piero pants from a couple years ago, before the style was updated. I bought the "Shark" color in size 31, and they fit great. (I normally buy size 31 or 32 waist.) I like the length too: I am 6'00", and they hit me in the center of my kneecaps, though I have shorter legs. I plan to buy more colors when they're in stock. My only grip with these shorts is that the pocket material is kind of fleecy-- it makes the shorts kind of warm, and my iPhone almost always has a damp screen when I pull it out of my pocket; this feature probably also makes the pockets ideal for NOT scratching up a cell-phone screen, so this is a win/lose.

My go to shorts
I love these short. My only problem is that they don't come in more colors. Nice solid build and excellent fit for my lanky frame

Comfortable, rugged, durable and stylish...I bought my 1st pair at Dick's Sporting Goods and liked them so much I went online to buy the 2 other colors of the same short.

Nice Shorts but a little too long
I would like these shorts much better if they came with the choice of lengths. The length is a little long for my taste but other than that these are a great pair of shorts. They seem like they will last a long time.

The shorts fit great , I have 3 colors the length of the short is the issue. Per the add at mountain Hardware inseam length is 12" the short should be 10 or 11".I am 6' 2" and 210 lbs of muscle . By the way why did you up date only 2 color with a button at the top at the waist line. The other color have snaps button at the waist.

Great, except for the pockets
These are really nice shorts. I'm 6'3" 175 lbs.. I appreciate the 12" inseam and that MH offers them in a 33" waist. My only issue is with the hand pockets. They are a little small and they use the soft, felt like material that is used around the inside waistband. Around the waistband it feels nice, but in the pockets it snags on any sharp corner of your finger nails or pointy piece of dry skin along the finger nail.

Great fit and comfort, bullet proof fabric, front pockets spill
I have both the shorts and regular legged version of these pants and absolute love them. They are my new "jeans". The fabric is bullet proof and extremely comfortable. The only negative is that if you sit on the ground or lay down, items will spill out of the front pockets.

too long, too thick
perhaps i didn't do my homework on these shorts but they are longer than i expected. I am 5' 11", 180, these shorts drop at or below my knees which is longer than i had hoped for. I was looking for a lighter weight stretch material, these are a fairly thick material, certainly durable but not as cool as I had hoped considering Las Vegas summer conditions. Good shorts, just not what i was looking for.

My husband loves these shorts not only for their quality and fit but because they just don't wrinkle. He can wear them while drive for long periods of time and when he gets out of the car he is wrinkle free. I think these would be the only shorts he'd own if he didn't have others in his closet already. A fabulous product.

Piero men's shorts
The other reviews on this product were right on - especially when I read another review on these shorts before I purchased a pair about someone who has a 36 waist normally and the shorts were too big. So I ordered the size 34 for my husband who is a 36 and the 34 waist size in this pair of shorts was perfect. My husband is thin and 6'2 ''and the shorts look really sharp on him!!! I wish they had a pair like these for women!!!. Generally we love Mountain Hardware if there are plenty of pockets and zippers with shorts or pants since he bikes and this way wallets and money don't fall out. I wish it came in more colors too!!!

I own several pairs of the Piero pants and was excited to get a pair of the shorts. I will say that the shorts are just as nice as the pants. The side poscket on the shorts are slightly larger than on the pants. The sizing feels like it is one size bigger in the shorts. I would like to see them in Forest.

Waist a tad big, length a little long on my 5'10" frame but super comfortable. Great quality!

I purchased some Piero shorts and Piero pants at the same time, both size 33. The pants fit very well - the shorts were huge. Comparing the waists of each, the waist of the shorts was at least 2 inches larger. Yet they were both labled 33 in.

Great shorts! Alittle long with the 12inches seams for me being 6 foot tall. Over all great shorts

Great shorts, but I found sizing tough...
Love the construction, look, feel, and function of these shorts. But, I found sizing tough. My old standby favorite shorts (also Mtn Hardwear) had a built in waist adjustment. These shorts do not, so the fit has to be spot on, or your wearing a belt, which I am not a fan of.

I have two pair of the Piero pants and love them. I'm not a climber. I'm just a normal guy who loves Mountain Hardwear stuff. These shorts are the best I've ever tried on. I live in Phoenix so shorts are worn a lot here. I may never take these off. If you love the Piero pants then this is an easy purchase. Thank you MH for providing a great product.
