I own several Fjallraven trousers, shorts and jackets. I love their quality. This time I ordered two shorts in size 50. One Karl and one Abisko short. The Karl fits as it should be but the Abisko short is too big and not true to size. Unfortunately I need to return it. I will exchange it to a size 48 and I hope that the Abisko will fit.
These versatile shorts look great looking and are durable on top of all. I've had a pair for about 9 months that I've used for everything from hiking, to trail running, to lounging at happy hour on Friday afternoons. They allow incredible range of motion, and have excellent pockets, including a small pocket within the right-side cargo pocket that's perfect for keeping a cell phone or slim camera stable, even when running. After months & months of frequent use, they show little sign of wear, and no fraying or thin spots at all. They are my very favorite shorts.
i usually shy away from buying "expensive" shorts, but these were worth it. Material is lightweight and durable both internally and externally. The material just makes you want to rub your leg with your hand all day. The fit is amazing.Pockets are extra roomy. Only downside is no back pocket to speak of.Has an extra front pocket on left leg that could carry an i phone or wallet to make up for the dearth of back pocket.Great buy. I plan on getting another pair.
