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

    They are great synthetic shorts that are light and maneuverable. However the fabric is a little thicker than I would prefer. I was hoping for something a little bit lighter. However, these shorts are great and look good enough for everyday wear unlike some of my other hiking/climbing shorts. Although discontinued I was hoping they would be similar feel and thickness to the EMS Rumney pants which have been a personal favorite (I have 4 pairs that I acquired over the past couple years). Overall, they are not what I expected but am pleasantly surprised. Also as a height reference, I'm 5'8" with a 33 inch waist. I got the 34 which is a smidge loose but I like it that way, and the length extends to right above my knees which is perfect.

      These shorts are very useful and stylish enough to wear on any occasions. The shorts stop above the knee so it makes it easy to maneuver through routes. I really like the material so because its so water or any liquid would be easily wicked away.

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

      I haven't had these shorts too long, but I am already blown away by their comfort, water resistance and general wearability. They feel at home both on the trails, and at concerts in the park, and anywhere in between.
      I'm 5' 10'' and 120 Lbs, with a ~29' waist. The 30' is a bit large, but with a belt fits well. Personally, I wish the inseam was a tad shorter, as they occasionally get caught on my knee, but that isn't a huge deal. I'm a little mixed about the panel on the inside of the thigh, as it doesn't quite look clean, (but not messy...) and adds circumference to the leg that I personally wish wasn't there... Now this is because I resemble a tooth pick. In general, I think this fit on the slimmer side.
      I really like the style of these, but am a tad conflicted about the inset pocket on the right leg. I'm not quite sure what I could use it for other than a pocket knife, but I'm sure I'll figure something out.
      The build feels fantastic. All stitiching feels great, fabric is light, breathable but durable and I love how sturdy the zipper, button and rivets feel. A great touch is the super lightweight material in the pockets. Very comfortable, (and the pockets are nicely sized too!)

        Really great shorts, light weight, and a bit of give. I use them for cycling, you don't feel so goofy walking in a store as with bike shorts, good for hiking, yard work, jump in the creek, have a beer...I bought 1 pair then went back and bought 2 more.
        I intent to live in them this summer.
