        These are lightweight, practical shorts - you won't win any fashion contests in them, but for hiking, travel, workout, they are awesome! I travel a lot, and these don't wrinkle and take up NO space, so perfect for the traveler. The elastic waist makes them very comfortable - for all kinds of activities.

        Pockets are useful - not super big, but decent sized hand pockets, plus a small cargo pocket on the side. I actually have a couple of pairs of these shorts because they are so comfortable. This pair went to Indonesia with me - they still looked clean and neat even after 4 weeks of rain forest and rice fields!

        I love these shorts, however I have to give them 3 stars even though I want to give them 5. Apparently they have changed the fit of the shorts from a standard fit to a relaxed fit, but they don't tell you this on the website. I was sent one of each, and when I asked about sending the relaxed fit back, I was told they are all relaxed fit now, and that they must have had an old pair leftover in their stock. Very frustrating that I was not told this ahead of time. As it was not indicated on my order or on the website. If you purchase these, just know they are a relaxed fit, which can be unflattering.

          I use these for work, and they're the perfect length and don't fit too tight. They are breathable and don't get too hot either.

              Love the pants so bought the shorts to try out this summer. They're perfect. I've worn them hiking, kayaking, beach wandering, and all over. Very comfortable, lightweight, pockets are handy, dries quickly.

                I LOVE these shorts. They are extremely comfortable. I have two pair now and probably will get additional colors in the future. They are lightweight for hot weather (a necessity for Louisiana) but stylish (aka...not running shorts which I tend to also wear a lot of).

                        The Aphrodite Shorts are my favorite shorts for hiking and relaxing: the small zippered pocket in addition to large (yes, large!) slash side pockets keeps things like keys secure, allowing the wearer to leave the bag behind for short jaunts. The only downside is they do run a bit large: I usually wear a Medium but could've easily fit in a Small for this style.

                          These shorts have a wide waistband that doesn't slip when working out. The length provides enough coverage for the gym. The leg openings are not too tight or too loose. For size reference, I'm 5'7" and 112 lbs. The North Face Fit Finder recommended size S (54%) or XS (46%), so I ordered both. The XS turned out to be a much better fit... size S was too loose in the waistband.
