Positive Reviews:

I have two pairs of these and about three pairs of some excellent mountain hardwear shorts with an integrated belt. These, like the rampart pants from 2012 are the best gear I own. Though the rampart short doesn't come with a belt, it accepts anything (even an elastic fishing or Arcade brand belt).
The elastic material is mosquito proof (admittedly more relevant for the pants...) and flexes with you. The length is great for comfort and style. I don't feel like a G.I. in the Pacific, nor am I tempted to make a fast break or take it to the hole.
The pockets are sleek. They stay smooth to the hips but accept hands without a problem. The thigh pockets are a great place to lose my wedding ring without fear it'll fall out. The top flap stays secure.
I've not managed to wear any holes in the material despite some pretty rough use. I'm expecting these shorts to go out of fashion before they have a blow out.

I wore these sport climbing in Canada, hiking in Puerto Rico, snorkeling in the Virgin Islands, and everywhere in between, and they are true to form. I knew what I expected when I thew down a fat wad of cash for one pair of shorts (I have the regular length), and they do not disappoint. They stretch a bit when soaked, and they get pretty stiff when you don't wash them for a couple weeks (what? we're all dirtbags here!), but they are extremely reliable and functional. They are never gonna give you up. They're never gonna let you down. They're never gonna run around and desert you. They're never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye, and they're never gonna tell a lie and hurt you.

good all around...except the waist size

The shorts are very comfortable and the color was spot on to the picture. These are probably my favorite Arc'teryx shorts yet. I have no complaints at all other than the waist size. I typically wear a 34, which is a touch big, but they fit fine. I got the 34s and they almost fell off. the 32s were perfect though.

An excellent product, what you would come to expect from arcteryx. Good material, doesn't feel to heavy and not too thin. Perfect length. Had a guy come as me where I got them, HA! Good amount of pockets and the double button clasp is nice. They don't get dirty easy, just brush off the mess!

Neutral Reviews:

Like all Arcteryx products, these shorts are exceptionally crafted. I especially liked the design of a cargo pocket which uses a flap, instead of finicky zippers.
The material and attention to detail are immaculate. Style is sharp.
I ultimately decided to return these because of issues with fitting and the material being a little too warm to my liking. Most Arcteryx pants/shorts are designed for those with flat butts, so if you have pronounced hips like me, these aren't a good fit. Even though I can put them on okay because of the stretchiness of the material, I just don't feel that they warrant the $90 price tag. Try them on before you buy.
