Rated5out of5byperambulating podiafromawesome, versatileI wear the shorts primarily for trail running; they are my current "go to" short when they're clean. Not a "tight" or compression short, but definitely more close fitting than traditional shorts. Plenty of flex in the fabric allows for completely free movement. The fabric texture is soft but has a some substance; to me a better feel than the silky/poly material used for most. Zip pockets great for keys, gels, etc.; snugger fit keeps things in pokets from bouncing. I'm 6'3" - 170lb; large fits perfectly. Well worth the extra cost compared to traditional trail running shorts.

Rated5out of5byKenrunfromA great trail running shortI have been trying to find a comfortable trail running short for the Leadville Marathon. Especially one with high UPF protection since I would be in high altitude for the race. I used these shorts for the last month of training and during the race. Every pair I had before these always had a trade off. No need to compromise anymore. These shorts had all the features I wanted. Ease of movement, good fit, durable, UPF 50+ protection, pockets with zippers. Buying another pair.

Rated5out of5bylasiocarpafromAll purpose shortI use these both at the gym and out for activities such as hiking, canoeing, camping. Perfect Summer weight short, quick drying, some stretch in fabric to allow maximum mobility.

Rated4out of5byRunnerfromRoad and Trail running shortsGreat road and trail running shorts. I love the design even though the fit is a bit undersized like everything with Salomon. The 2 zipped side pockets are very convenient. Super comfortable. I could wear those shorts even when I'm not running. I would buy another pair if they weren't so expensive. If you like the brand, go for it !

Rated4out of5byPrince NymphfromGreat shortsGreat shorts overall. Very comfortable and well designed/constructed. Run slightly tighter/slimmer than 2012 version. I wear a medium; however, the legs are a little slimmer than last year. Going up to a large would not work in waist. I am 5 ft 11 inches 180 lbs, with sturdy legs to give you a reference.

Rated4out of5bycouple2treefromSalomon FLoat ShortsI use this for hiking and running. Though it is longer than normal running shorts, the material is soft and stretchy where there is no restriction at all. They seemed to dry quick as well.
