Tight in the butt
Shorts run a little small in the butt causing them to give me mini-wedgie. They need a little more length in the rise or across the backside and offering lengths to 12" would be nice. I am 5'10" and weigh 135, so I'd say these are bit small to be the "ultimate hiking shorts" (which is my quest these days)

I have a difficult time finding pants that fit me in the hips and waist. I am fairly slender and frequently pants fit me in the hips but are too large in the waist. These shorts fit perfect.

Great pair of shorts!
Bought these for my teenage daughter who loves technical bottoms. She loves the longer inseam, loves all the pockets especially the roomy cargo pockets and she really likes the stretchy waist that bends when she does. PLEASE offer it in more colors and yes, a knife pocket would be awesome. Thank you.

Best shorts ever created.
Best shorts I have ever owned. Fits perfectly, has lots of pockets and they stretch when you bend or crouch down to catch a frog. I would say all they need is a dedicated pocket knife pocket. But there are enough pockets to still carry one very easily.
Even great with snow on the ground

Disappointed
I was told by a rep in an email, that this year, these shorts would replace the Lakota Rugged relaxed fit shorts (that were amazing) from last season.

First, I should have looked at the back picture of the model closely because the rise ( can you say wedgie?) is too short. Secondly the material seems a little bit thinner than the previous model.

Third, when looking at the rise, I noticed the inside tag said regular fit, even though I was not even aware that the Lakota's were relaxed fit.

These are definitely NOT the replacement for my favorite Lakota shorts.

Sadly, I bought 2 pairs hoping to get my size before they sold out and had already washed them for a trip before I discovered this, now they will both go to the donation pile.

If you want a regular fit, light weight material. They may be ok for you.

How do these compare to the ForceLakota shorts you had last year - Fabric, fit, durability????
Pamela on Jul 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Both styles are made of 6 ounce fabric, the Force Extremes shorts feature our fastest drying technology (37.5) that keeps your body at an ideal temperature, they are also a slim fit. The Lakota shorts were a relaxed (bigger) fit and featured a FastDry technology that was similar, but did not keep the body at an ideal temperature since it did not have 37.5 technology like our Force Extremes shorts. They are both equally durable.
Is the material for these shorts similar to duck cotton?
A shopper on Jun 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure I know what duck cotton is but if it's what I think it is, it not woven like that but is a lightweight sturdy cotton. Not the slight sheen i think duck cotton has.
What is the inseam on these?? Thanks!!
littleitaly112 on Feb 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 10" inseam
