I recently went backpacking in the Canadian Rockies and came back knowing I had to get new hiking shorts.. mine were ill-fitted, to loose, and honestly not very flattering. Purchased these and they fit wonderfully, are stylish, and I like that I can easily flip up the hem line to make them a little shorter when it's hot. I love the back pockets and the slim fit. I'm 5'9", 130lbs so don't want something baggy, as hiking pants/shorts often are. Very flattering and I won't just be wearing them hiking!
