REI Aldervale Shorts - Women'sis rated4.0out of5by3.
Rated2out of5byfromUnflatteringThe fabric is a comfortable, quick drying one appropriate for technical use. I did not like the style, though. I found that double flap on the side pocket, the accordion-style folds on the back pockets, and even the visible drawstring to look bulky and excessive. I'd prefer a much more sleek, streamlined looking short. These are good for the leanest of lucky wearers for whom it's actually flattering to add visual interest to their slim frame.

Rated5out of5byfromGood All-Purpose ShortsBought these for hiking, but they're just as nice for hanging out on the patio. Lightweight, not at all bulky, and they stretch nicely for full range of movement. I'd love to see them in more colors!

Rated5out of5byfromVery happy with these!I have worn these hiking in Zion on a hot day, running around at my kids school for their Egg Drop and have been very happy with their fit and comfort. Cell phone fits in a pocket with a snap so that was nice while running around. No complaints so far!
