I just bought my third pair of these shorts so clearly I'm a fan, but I will say that Royal Robbins re-styled and re-sized them maybe last year (?) and the fit is different enough that I had to go up a size. I don't care; they're the ideal shorts. I am petite and curvy -- my waist is small but I have ample thighs, so I love a long short that comes to my knee. They have to be fitted, though, so I don't feel like I'm wearing culottes in 1987. These are perfect. The waist is fitted with no gapping when I squat or sit, there's plenty of room for my hips and thighs but they could never be described as "baggy." Basically they're perfectly proportioned for an hourglass shape. They do stretch out a tiny bit over the first few hours of wearing them, nothing drastic enough to cause you to size down from what feels comfortable out of the box. One of the best parts about them is how quickly they dry--these are the shorts you want to be wearing on a kayaking trip, or for a walk on the beach when the waves are spraying you higher than you anticipated. Love them!

I really like these shorts. They are a great length and very comfortable. I like the fabric. Only cons: 1) There is an inside button on the fly that is entirely unnecessary. I just ignore it. 2) Inadequate pockets! Why, why, why do women's clothes have to have such lame pockets? I can barely fit my hankie in there. Forget about a cell phone. Good shorts if you can handle basically having no pockets. Okay, my single key fits too. But nothing more.

These run small! The fabric was so nice and they were so lightweight, but they zip right at the waist, so if you've got a muffin top, let's just say it's not pretty! They seem more cut for girls than women.

I purchased several pairs of shorts to try and the Discovery Bermuda won! I originally ordered the Black in a size 12 and they fit perfectly (I am 5'6'' 150 lbs and curvy figure) I usually wear an 8 or 10. These shorts have a lot of stretch (may stretch too much after I wear them but i am ok with that) and I do not like things tights so the 12 is perfect for me. I then ordered the Charcoal color in a 12 and they were way too small...I noticed that the tags on these were different color from the black ones...I had to send the Charcoal back and exchanged them for the Deep Blue size 12 and they fit perfect, they also had the same green tags as the Black color. I am looking forward to wearing these on my hiking trip this May in Utah, CO and AZ...very light, comfy, CUTE and hopefully breathable.

These shorts are great! They are very light weight and airy! I got the Soap Stone color (Yeah) and the charcoal color (yeah)! But please come out with many more colors. I like the little bit lower waist and softness and style! Please lets get Citron or lime green, Turquoise, Purple, the list can go on, but you get the idea. I would buy all those colors when you bring them in. I love these shorts!
