great hiking shorts!
Review by LH NYC

These shorts are great for hiking because of the longer length and extremely comfortable fabric!!

Comfortable, water shedding shorts
Review by NoraT

These Crester soft-shell shorts are the best. They are stretchy and comfortable to wear for days at a time. They shed water and dirt and if they do get soaked in a sit-on-top kayak, they dry quickly.

Fantastic - but sizes are off.
Review by Jeff

My wife wears a L/12 across many competitor brands. The 12 shorts are too small and the L shirt was tight in the chest and across the back. My daughter wears a size 10 and both fit her perfectly.

Wish the shorts came in a 14 (or at least look at sizing comparisons). The shirt was not available in an XL but would have tried it if I could get it. Hope they both return next year.

Both my daughter and wife love the fabrics and colors and functionality - hoping for a more true size fit.

Perfect Activity Short!
Review by Maggie

Very durable and comfortable for active activities! I wear these for biking, hiking and even sailing! Nice and stretchy and quick drying- you can really beat these shorts up. I'm 5'2 and bought the size 2- keep true to size because they loosen up when active! a little tight at first.

Great shorts
Review by Bea D.

They are great! I'm 5.3" 112 lb. size 2 is perfect. Love the color and cut. Highly recommended!

WAY too big
Review by LW

Size 2 was WAY too big, so I had to return these. Wish Stio would make clothes for smaller women, because these are great shorts.

Non-dowdy tech shorts!
Review by NorCal

I've only had mine for a few days, but I'm having a hard time not wearing them every day. They fit great in that they are stretchy and not binding anywhere, yet they have a slim fit on the leg which makes them look so much more "put together" than most shorts. I just bought another pair in the other color. That's how much I'm into them. It's kind of insane to spend so much on a pair of shorts. I do think most Stio items are overpriced. I bought them during a sale and got a tiny bit off, but still. The other little drawback is that they make a little sound if your legs rub together. Not really loud like some outdoor pants, but it's there.That said, chances are you'll love them too!

OMG - Better than imagined!
Review by JTCal

Just received my Women's Crester Soft Shell Shorts, and they are amazing! Tradewind color, size 2 -, soft for the summer heat/sun, Style- Simple, "Stylish" cut with lower waist band, length to knee, 2 functional hand pockets at hip (goes most length of short!), and small, camo zip pocket...Want to take on upcoming backpack trip, but almost need another pair to keep "nice" for work and looking good! Not sure how they will hold up to the rigors of back country, but they are Stio, and my first purchase, made for outdoor use?! Will follow up with "Outdoor Review" in a month. Meanwhile, feels like Christmas, and Katlyn (customer service ) was a terrific help. Not easy to find my size either!! Thanks so MUCH!

stated wrong size in previous review
Review by Regina

As I stated in my previous review these are my favorite shorts. I am 5'2" 110 lbs wear 25 inch jeans. The size 2 shorts fits perfectly(previous review said size XS). The leg length will work for those tall and short. They hit me right above the knee.

My favorite shorts
Review by Regina

My favorite shorts. They fit my small athletic body perfectly. I'm 5'2" and 110lbs. Wear jeans in a 25. Size XS is perfect. They are very slimming as the legs are tapered. Most bermuda shorts are wide legged and are not very flattering. I get lots of compliments on these shorts. Buy them. You won't regret it.

Good length for hiking & biking!
Review by Jo - Staff

These shorts are perfect length and fit for activities. They never ride up, and the pockets are great for storing things fast and comfortably. I can already tell that I'll be living in these this summer!

I love these shorts!
Review by Kate S.

These shorts are great. The fabric is soft and comfortable, there are lots of pockets and I love the blue grey color. They are a little pricey but I feel they will hold up well for years to come.
