Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but not on me. The fabric, construction and appearance of these shorts exceeded my expectations. The price is a bit high. But I previously owned a pair of Nomad shorts, and I know how great they look after much use and laundering. That alone turns the price into money well spent. I encountered two problems with this new pair of Nomad shorts that forced me to return them. First, I am 5'3" with disproportionately short legs. That 8" inseam is too long for me, and there are no petite options. Second, I wear size 6 in pants, but the size 6 in the Nomad shorts is a touch too big around the hips, which allows the shorts to sag even further down my legs. A size 4 would be too tight. So I reluctantly returned the Nomad shorts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Shorts I bought these shorts for an upcoming trip to Vietnam. I needed something light weight, quick to dry, and not too long or too short. These shorts were the perfect answer. They are the length I wanted and the material is very breathable and easy to dry. There is even a soft lining on the inside of the waistband that will help with friction when hiking. The only thing I would like to see added is more pockets to store money and such. Otherwise, these shorts were exactly what I was looking for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Perplexed I ordered a pair of these shorts, loved them so much. They fit like a dream, quick dry, functional, great length and looked good. In fact I loved them so much that I ordered another pair. The exact same size and color. The pair that came? They were so tight, I could barely pull them all the way on. The huge inconsistency on sizing, or manufacturing, has made me think twice about ordering anything else. That being said, I still love my original pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pair of shorts When I saw these shorts show up on the website, I had to have them immediately! I loved how they looked and wanted a lightweight pair of shorts with a modest fit but not quite as long as some of the other shorts offered. When I got these in the mail, I was a little bit disappointed to find that they were fairly wrinkly. They do wrinkle pretty easily. I haven't had many opportunities to wear them just yet, but I'm hoping that the wrinkles loosen up with wear. Otherwise these shorts are very lightweight and will be perfect near the water. I would wager a guess that these could work pretty well as swim shorts in a pinch. Because they are so versatile, I would recommend them to a friend. However, I do think the price is a little steep. Oh, and I went with Slate for a color. Great color! Also.. if you're between sizes, I'd recommend going up a size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nomad Short I am a pretty solid size 6 and this fits me roomy. I think I might have even been OK in a 4. The fabric is so lightweight you feel like you have nothing on. They are comfortable, classy looking and still outdoorsy.I love all the pockets, cell phone spots and loops. Very well made and cool, but a little pricey. I have only had them a week or so but they laundered well and probably will last a lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shorts! These shorts are wonderful! Just took a trip to Europe and they can be pulled from the suitcase and immediately worn. Wrinkles fall right out and they dry overnight if you wash them. I have 3 pairs and wear nothing else, even at home. I will buy the pants soon so i do not have to pack so heavy for the next trip!!! They do fit a bit big and sometimes need a belt to hold them up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from These run small. I bought a size 14, which usually gives me plenty of breathing room. Not so with these puppies. The legs are cut so that they tend to hug a larger thigh (like mine). The model's legs are so thin I mistakenly thought the shorts were cut in a bit more of an A-line style. I'm sure there fine for thinner folks, but not so flattering, or comfortable on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Shorts As a larger woman (5'4 190 lbs) I was very skeptical about purchasing these shorts. I ordered them in the size 18 and they fit really well! They are very comfortable and have lots of room in the pockets. They are a little long but that will be an advantage for hiking. The berry color is great, too and they fold up very small for packing.
