    Shorts run small; EMS tight with returns

    By GearGuy

    Pros

    Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Trailhead Shorts:

    These were a replacement for a similar short that was returned because it was defective, and there were no more of the size & style returned. The returned shorts fit perfectly; these, the same size but by a different manufacturer, were too tight. Some advice based on the seller's extensive experience with the manufacturer--e.g., "runs large," or "runs small"--would be useful on-line merchandising.

      For hiking, biking and other outdoor activities in warm, humid weather. Also packs well for traveling. Fabric is lightweight and stretchy, so wears out over time.

        I love these and have 3 pairs. They're extremely comfortable, wick nicely, and have roomy front pockets. They look great and are perfect for casual wear as well as strenuous hiking. I can't think of anything I don't like about them.

          Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Trailhead Shorts:

          I was looking for replacement hiking shorts. Key requirements were that they be light weight, quick drying, and have several sealable pockets. This fit the bill perfectly. I bought three pair in case they stop production. A bit pricey, so it would be better to buy them on sale.

          Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Trailhead Shorts:

          Bought these for a hiking and rafting trip looking forsomethingo comfortable that would dry quickly. They certainly lived up to that promise. To my great enjoyment though, I found the side zip pocket to be at the perfect angle to serve as a canned beverage holder while I was sitting on the raft (obviously not on rapids).

            These are great shorts, and I wear them all the time: for hiking and other active pursuits and day-to-day, casual wear. They breathe and wick, and stretch just a bit for an excellent, comfortable fit. They're also very durable, and come out of the dryer looking great. I've even gotten compliments on how they look. I have every color they make!

                  The shorts sold as the official Boy Scout or BSA uniform really are awful. Upgrade to these shorts for your Class A uniform for summer camp, meetings, and high adventure. I just returned from Sea Base in Florida, I wore these shorts for a week without washing and they still look great. Deep pockets, great fit, zipper pockets, and the correct uniform color in Grape Leaf.
