Most comfortable shorts I've ever owned!


Wore recently on a backcountry canoe trip, fit so well and moved comfortably when paddling and portaging. Super light so the few splashes I got on them dried quickly.



Great everyday short


I have several other pairs of OR pants/shorts all of which are a size small/4. I'm 5'7" and 133. On recommendation from other users I ordered a size up when I ordered the ferrosi pants. The pants were actually quite loose and I was glad I had a draw string. But, they'll be great for climbing as I do not like feeling restricted. For the shorts, I initially opted to go back to my normal OR size - 4 - and ordered the Ferrosi in a size 4. Too small. So I ordered the size 6. Better, but still a wee bit snugger then I'd like in the thighs - especially when I have the same season pants which are borderline baggy in a size 6. Overall I like the shorts and the 7" length is great. Can wear a climbing harness especially if just belaying clients. Also great every day short/hiking short. Just order w/ caution on sizing. Definitely go up 1 size for the shorts. Normal size for the pants.

GREAT shorts


These shorts fit great and will be perfect for my upcoming hiking trip to Montenegro. I bought online and while that is always risky, they fit perfect. Wearing them right now!

I would buy this product again and again


I recently purchased 3 pairs of ferosi shorts because I loved the first 2 so much! They are great fir any adventure you can think of, but esp. good for hiking, biking or kayaking and they are great for warm weather environments. Love these and wkuld buy more if OR offered new colors. Highly recommend!



Comfy, lightweight and fast drying,


These are really comfy lightweight shorts to wear. They fold up small and are great for traveling. I also like the zipper pocket, sure comes in handy. The shorts are light weight, stretchy, and comfy to hike in. Perfect to wear on a hot day. They also dry fast if you get them wet. I am 5' and weigh between 110 and 112 pounds and purchased a size 4. I suggest that If you have slightly bigger thighs I would go a size up.
