Mens shorts.

They are very comfortable. I am 6.0 tall. A little over weight mainly because of the pandemic because of my love of beer. I weigh in the high 180s (pounds) and I got a size medium which fit me quite well. I'm sure when I lose weight they will fit even better. I recommend these shorts. I also own them in blue and grey.

Great outdoor breathable shorts

I bought the grey ones for my trip to Isle Royale. I wore them all day and slept in them for 7 days, and they held up great and dried quickly after 4 miles in the rain. I have a 34-35" waist and originally ordered the Large, since I get that size in all my shorts. The large was too constrictive, but he XL is great, if not a tiny bit baggy. I like the gusset in the seat. I love that there are no zippers to pop my sleeping pad. It's very hard to find shorts with no zippers. The side pockets are deep enough and lined with a durable fabric that keeps things from falling out. They feel much lighter then they are because they breath so well. Liked them so much that I picked up this blue pair. I really wish they had the lighter blue color they had last year as I have a LOT of trouble matching with Navy blue. My wife is always telling me to change them because they only match a few things. I probably would have been happier with the black. Would highly recommend for hiking, backpacking and general summer use. I do wish that both back pockets had Velcro instead of just one side. Coalatree - if you have an XL pair of the light blue color, send them my way! Thanks!

Awesome shorts

comfy good fit only thing that sucks is the shipping time.

now on another note your pants are not xl - everything in male ranges appears to be based on Asian/Euro size charts everything "bottom wise" is geared a size smaller

Go to shorts

I wear these almost everywhere. I am not up to 3 different colors and they have pretty much retired the rest of my shorts, both athletic and casual. These fit the mold for just about any setting and they look good doing it.

I also have two pairs of the pants which I love. I do recommend following the cleaning instructions (inside out, hang dry) to keep the material in top shape.

Unfortunantly I did ruin a pair of the pants catching them on a nail while roofing in them (of course I would wear this material doing everything) but have no plans to find any other brand as my favorites!

Amazing Shorts

I absolutely love them! I have bought the black, gray, and navy and between those, it’s what I’ve worn all summer long. They are incredibly versatile, but the best part is the only time I’ve needed to or felt like washing them was after swimming in the lake in them when i forgot swim trunks and after shoveling dirt and they were covered in dirt soaked in with sweat. Outside of those times, they never stink, they look great, and i can’t recommend them enough. I was put off a little bit by the long draw strings at first, but i figured out a way to tie them up and don’t notice any more. The attached pictures are my first two pairs that I’ve had for months and have been in one of these pairs of shorts at all times whether relaxing at the house or out running errands or working out or riding my bike…whatever. I just purchased the navy ones so i could have more complete color options. Unbelievable product and great customer service with any questions I’ve had!! I’d give these shorts more stars if possible.

I Think I'm Addicted...

I love the trailhead family of lower body wear. The pants and shorts are phenomenal. My wife and I have 9 pairs (various styles) between the two of us, and I've given them to my father, mother, sister, brother-in-law, close friends...etc. I truly believe in the quality and functionality of these pants. They are amazing. You should buy them.

I love these!

My son-in-law told me about Coalatree shorts so I bought a pair and I love them! Light weight, stretchy and extremely comfortable. Best purchase I have made in a long time!

Great Shorts but the sizing is a bit on the larger side.

Love the shorts as it offers everything that it advertises. I have been using the longer version of the trailhead pants and swear by them. Only issue is the sizing. I ordered a Size L but I feel that it is much bigger in fit than expected.
