REI Sahara Shorts - Women'sis rated4.7333out of5by15.
Rated5out of5byfromGreat travel shorts!This is my second pair of Sahara 10 inch shorts. I wore my first pair while traveling in China this summer and I just had to purchase a second pair. The length is just right, the material is comfortable, quick drying, and easy to care for, and these shorts can be worn for a variety of purposes from travel to hiking. Very happy with the Sahara shorts!

Rated5out of5byfromIdeal travel shortsI bought these shorts to take on an upcoming trip to Italy after taking a packing light class. They are extremely light weight, comfortable and they dry fast. I've been wearing them non-stop since I bought them.

Rated5out of5byfromMy favorite shortsI bought these for travel and purchased several more for casual wear. I hope to get another pair in green as I love the fit. I hope REI offers more colors and doesn't make any changes in the fit or style. I would buy the green now, but it isn't offered, so I hope they bring that color back.

Rated5out of5byfromperfect!Very lightweight and comfortable; far more flattering than I expected (or, uh, deserve). They seem durable, and the taupe (darker) color matches easily with everything. I plan to order a second pair in the lighter color soon.

Rated3out of5byfromBring Back The Old Style!Used to love the Sahara shorts. They were around 6 or 7" long. Now they are way to long, and have a weird fit. The leg openings are huge! Please offer these in 2 different lengths and offer in some dark colors.

Rated5out of5byfromMy all-time favorite shortsI love the number of pockets and length of shorts. 10" sounds long, but it is great coverage and allows for the extra pockets. Most comfortable shorts I own.

Rated5out of5byfromexcellent shortsI bought these shorts on sale to take on a trip to the Adriatic coast, where I knew it would be hot. They were just the right thing -- fit well, super lightweight, and dry fast after washing. I especially like the adjustable elastic in the waistband.
