The shorts fit well and they are so comfy!

Abbey Riggs
New favorite shorts

I came for the pants, loved the pants so much, I came back for the shorts. Pretty sure at this point I’d buy a skirt version if they had one. Great fit, super comfortable. I'll be getting more soon!

Brilliant Product and Service

The most recent order was made a few years after I first backed it on Kickstarter, and I still have the original pair in great condition. Ordered two pairs this time, and although there were hiccups due to the shipping partner, service recovery by Coalatree was great and they sent me my two pairs after an email inquiry. Just wore one of my new pairs today, and was caught in the rain (this happens quite often in monsoon season in Singapore), and my undies were fine, having been protected by the adventure shorts' water-repellant nature.

This was a gift

But recipient said it was great.

Great Packable Option

The Trailhead shorts are a great option for traveling, especially hiking. They are comfortable, lightweight, and pack down small. I haven't had the chance to test them on the trail yet, but I have a feeling they will stand up to the rigorous environment every bit as much as my Trailhead pants do.

My favorite shorts

After my first pair purchased and having them for a year, I then bought every color available. In my opinion these shorts are thin, sturdy and a great length. I am 5’4” 150lbs. and i bought size women's large. My favorite shorts.

Great Shorts!

Love the shorts. Very comfortable and soft material.

Still love after 4 yrs!

I backed these when they were first released on Kickstarter. I bought two pairs, and they are STILL my favorite shorts!! I’m buying the 3 other colors now. I need all of them. Hahaha.
