Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice idea, but not worth the steep price tag. I'd like to start off by saying that I generally love the Arc'teryx brand. I've worn the heck out of much of my Arc'teryx apparel, and I would rate nearly everything I've gotten from the brand at 5 stars. However, I have been relatively underwhelmed by these shorts, especially considering how expensive they are. The main problem I have with the shorts is that they're simply durable khaki shorts and nothing more. Giving credit where credit is due, the shorts are made up of an extremely durable and lightweight material, but that's where the technical aspects end. They are not treated with any sort of DWR. They are not fast drying (but they do dry slightly faster than a standard khaki material based solely on how lightweight they are). The stretch is nice, but certainly not unique to Arc'teryx products. The crotch has already started to pill, and the material seems to soak up every bit of oil it can find from sunscreen, food stains, and sweat. Luckily they wash well, but so do cheaper pairs of shorts I own. Arc'teryx has always been an expensive brand, even among expensive outdoor brands. It's Arc'teryx's pursuit of technical perfection that make the garments worth the extra cash. However, I don't feel like these shorts have anything over their cheaper counterparts. After owning them and wearing them for about 3 months, I can't tell you a single thing that makes these shorts more suited to any one pursuit than a cheaper pair of shorts from a different brand. While I understand that the shorts are being marketed as "city wear" as opposed to general outdoor wear, in reality, it really feels as if Arc'teryx is simply relying on its logo alone to justify the $90 tag, which is something I've never really seen from the brand before. There's simply nothing special about these shorts other than the logo, which I'm sure to some automatically justifies the price. I'm just not one of those people. Bottom line: If you're looking for a pair of nice khakis solely because you want the Arc'teryx logo on the leg, then look no further. However, if you are like me and are considering buying these based on Arc'teryx's reputation for outstanding technical gear, you would be better looking at another brand and saving $20-$30.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shorts These shorts look nice and are made of very resilient material. The first time I wore them I was transporting my bike and got some chain grease on the shorts. Needless to say I was worried that I ruined them the first time wearing them. After a little spray and wash and then I trip through the washer they were good to go. It's hard to find a light colored material that's going to bounce back like that. They are also very light weight and very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great on campus or the trail The cut and the fabric mean I'm happy and comfortable going from the office to class four terrain. I'm happier with these shorts than I expected when I got them, and I immediately liked the fit when I tried them on in store.
