Rated 5 out of 5 by Bodysurfer from Best Shorts I've Ever Worn The Men's Cresta Hiking Shorts are better than ever. They are light, sturdy, stylish, and functional. They dry quickly. The cargo pockets are close to the body and do not look baggy. The feature that I am most pleased about is the snap closure that keeps the shorts secure. The snap closure on previous models (2017 and earlier) sometimes would unsnap and a belt was a necessity. The zipper pocket closures are smooth and easy to use. The price is a bit steep, but I usually wait until there is a sale and get a discount. If I had a wish, I would ask for additional dark colors. I rarely write reviews, but this is a great product that I know you will love.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SFBayResident from Don't Believe the Listed Size I wear a size 40 for shorts and pants. So when I bought the Men's Cresta Hiking shorts in size 40 waist, I was confident they would fit. Nope! They fell down to my ankles. Perplexed, I measured the shorts, and they turned out to be size 42! So I called LLBean over the telephone. I was informed that my size 40 shorts were actually size 41.75. I did not get a good explanation from LLBean representatives for why the shorts were so much larger than the advertised size. I was told other sizes were also 1.75 inches larger than the list size. So LLBean customers beware! Absolutely do not trust advertised sizes for these shorts. First telephone LLBean to obtain the true and accurate waist sizes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hokie70 from Good but prefer Mountain Side Shorts I bought 2 pair of these shorts for my husband. While he likes these shorts, he prefers the previous model named "Mountainside" shorts. On the positive side, the material is lightweight and quick drying. The primary shortcoming of these shorts is the open slash pocket on right leg above the zippered cargo pocket that the Mountainside shorts had is missing on the Cresta Hiking Shorts. The slash pocket was great for carrying a cell phone. While he uses the zippered cargo pocket on the Creata Hiking shorts for his cell phone, it easily slides out, whereas that never happened on the Mountainside. Bring back the Mountainside shorts or add the slash pocket to the Cresta hiking shorts to raise this rating from 3 to 5 stars

Rated 5 out of 5 by jodygnaz from Love these I am female, but find these shorts fit me far better and wear better than similar women's shorts. I would never wear cargo pants or shorts, but the flat pockets on these and the Cresta long pants are unobtrusive but so useful. My phone sits in one pocket, whether at home, working in a casual office or hiking and is very accessible. Last year, as I lost weight, I accidentally ordered the Mountain shorts, which work but are just not the same. Don't change a thing on these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TGIII from Awesome shorts!! I initially bought my first pair of these shorts when I was looking for a good hiking short. My wife and I hike and camp a great deal and I was looking for something with a good fit and that was tough. The Cresta shorts definitely fits those criteria. This is my second pair of the Cresta shorts. Love the fit with the slight stretchiness of the cloth. Extremely light weight. Dry extremely fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tailwinds from Excellent This was an easy choice because I already have a pair of the Cresta hiking pants. Both items are light and comfortable, have two secure zip-close front pockets, and are available in my size, 33. During a heat wave here in Boston, I've been wearing these shorts every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Outlander from Excellent product. Perfect. Ordered one (1) pair to test and after that, four (4) more. Live in them. Very comfortable. Light weight, comfortable, do not wrinkle, regardless of how long or hard they are worn. Excellent product. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trilliumfan from Performance features with dressy look I bought these for my son. He is fond of the quick-drying fabric for active outdoors. The styling and tailoring are impressive—they would pass muster where khaki shorts are appropriate. A small grease stain appeared; I treated it with typical stain remover and it came out beautifully.
