Men's Rifugio™ Trek Short is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Uniform Shorts We bought these shorts for our River Patrol Staff and they have been great. They look good, dry quickly, have zippered pockets, comfortable in when sitting in a kayak all day or executing swiftwater rescue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight, but stretches when wet Decent product, good construction quality. Fit is on the 'too large' side, and is even more so when the shorts are wet. The 12" inseam provides a very long fit, extending past my knees, which was not ideal for my purposes. Additionally, the two pockets in the front of the short sit right on top of your thigh, which caused any items in those pockets to rub against lets when walking more so than if the pockets had been placed more to the side.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good, but not great I bought these for the purpose of mostly trail running. they are light weight and quick drying. the front two pockets have zippers so I do not have to worry about my stuff falling out. I wish they would have added two pockets on the backside. Also, I removed the existing belt that came with the shorts and sewed on my own belt loops so I could use my own belt. The price is high for how minium these shorts are, but with all Mt. Hardwear gear, you know it will last (80% of my gear is Mt. Hardwear).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shorts These probably are the best shorts I've ever purchased. I don't normally care much about shorts but these are very nice. I ended up buying all 3 colors. Really like the belt adjustment as well.
