Hi @LetitiaP - Thanks for reaching out. One of the reasons we are most excited about this community is the chance to hear feedback directly from our customers. We hear your frustration and apologize for not having comparable pockets on this year’s boy’s and girl’s co-op shorts.

@Diesseldorf's suggestion is a good one. If your daughter is looking for cargo pockets specifically, the boy’s Sahara shorts might work well for her. While the front pockets on girl’s version do not close, they are designed to be intentionally roomy, whereas the front pockets on the boy’s shorts are smaller. Hopefully one of these styles will work for what your daughter is planning to carry while playing, hiking, and camping. 

We have passed your feedback along to our buyers and REI designers. Thank you for taking the time to share it with us. 

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
