I have put over 60 miles hiking, backpacking, and trekking around the south on the Mountain Khakis Cruiser Pants and they have performed admirably. They are super comfortable, durable and look great in the outdoors and social situations. Read on for my full update!

Hiking pants are an essential part of any kit. I have tried several brands over the years and find that I generally like a pair of pants that are lightweight and comfortable, can stand up to abuse, and, most important to me, have a short inseam. I am 5’6” and have a 30 inch inseam which has meant that I end up needing to hem or roll most outdoor pants. Enter Mountain Khakis – they have a pant that seems like it will fit the bill – the Cruiser Pant. I will be using these pants over the next few months on my adventures and see if they earn a place in my gear closet. In the meantime, read on for my initial impression.
I have used the Mountain Khakis Granite Creek Shorts over the past several weeks on dayhikes and on an overnight camping trip, putting over 37 miles on them over this time period. They have performed admirably wicking away sweat and showing no signs of wear. Read on for the rest of my report.
Shorts are an essential part of any outdoor kit for summer adventures. This summer I will be testing the Mountain Khakis Granite Creek Shorts as I pursue outdoor adventures in the southeastern United States. Read on for my initial thoughts on the shorts.
Let me be blunt. I am not a pencil thin, incredibly fit woman. I am a full figured, food loving woman. So, finding shorts that actually fit my body type and don’t make me question their durability, is pretty darn hard. I don’t know about the other ladies out there, but a lot of the “active” shorts out there seem to be made for people without hips and, assuming that you can get them on over your hips, often result in the loosest waist band known to man. I know I’m not the only shapely, active woman out there, but sometimes it feels like it!
When Mountain Khakis sent me their Snake River Shorts, I was, understandably, nervous of how exactly they would fit me. And, more pointedly, how exactly would they fair in my active lifestyle?
