I have found my new favorite pair of hiking and backpacking shorts. I have used the shorts for over 100 miles of hiking and backpacking since receiving them in July including two multi-day backpacking trips. They have proven to be comfortable, durable and an all around great pair of shorts. Read on for my final impressions.

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?
