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.
Mountain Khakis Women’s Granite Creek Long Sleeve Shirt
What a nice surprise to receive the Mountain Khakis Granite Creek long sleeve shirt to review on the first day our temperatures have been above 50F since last fall! The color even hints at spring, as it is a soft, celery color. We’ve had a long, cold, snowy winter and it is so good to see signs of spring! A few birds, bare ground and a spring shirt to review!
Mountain Khakis provided the Granite Creek shirt for review purposes. There are some really neat features on this shirt. Roll up sleeves and a wide collar to start with. It also boasts UVA and UVB 50+ protection and water repellency. I’m planning on looking at all the features in my upcoming review. I plan on wearing it while hiking, walking and kayaking. Check out the first part of the review HERE.
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?

I have used the Mountain Khakis Snake River pants almost daily since my last report. They have been washed several times and all stains have been removed successfully. There was a reddish brown stain that I had no idea where it came from and was concerned that it would remain. It came out in the wash and I was relieved. The weather since the last report has been in the 80 F to 95 F range with the humidity over 80 % most of the time. During this period I went on a 3 day backpack and attended the 3 day Lowell Folk festival.
