Mountain Hardwear Canyon Short - Men's - 2008 BCS
With fabric that wicks your sweat away, the Mountain Hardwear Men's Canyon Shorts keep you dry all day long. Mountain Hardwear's gusseted crotch prevents these shorts from feeling like you're about to split a seam down under, and the Canyon Shorts' built-in webbing belt keeps everything secure. Zip your car keys into the rear pocket and hit the trail.

Great shorts for water-anything (due to DWR resistance), hiking through briars or thorns and climbing (due to durability). the size runs small/tight, but I'm nervous about going up to a medium. I love these shorts, but my favorite is still the Royal Robbins Backcountry (more pockets, better fit, elastic belt rather than static webbing).
really good in the heat!!

Hiking in the muggy morning at 80 degrees with 78 percent humidity. These shorts do the trick!! Breathe and wick great, and very lightweight.
Great shorts for backpacking

These shorts have performed very well. The lightweight material will dry quickly and wick away sweat keeping you cool in the heat. The rear pockets feel slightly lower than they should be, but it's not really a problem. The built-in belt is really helpful and snaps on and off easily. I recommend purchasing these shorts.

I have owned several pairs of these shorts for years, and they have been great. Very durable and resistant to dirt, stains, etc. I wear them day-to-day in the summer as well as hiking, paddling, etc. In short, these are the best pair of all-purpose shorts I have found!

Good For Hiking

These have a good shorter inseam and are designed well for getting out on a hike. They are simple in construction and very light. I have a 38 waist and the larges fit me quite well. The pockets are not designed for holding goodies whilst sitting, so they are not too good for casual wear. If you need a nice light pair of shorts for the outdoors, these should do just fine.

Really comfortable. Just the right length. I wear them all summer (have several pair). Can't wear them out. Lightweight and dry quickly. Highly recomended.
Not too long, not too short, just the right length

There are many manufacturers that make these type of shorts with lightweight, quick drying material. All are pretty much similar. However, I particularly like these because they fit very nicely. They are not too long and not too short.
