Are these the most expensive shorts I now own? Yes. But they are so worth it. The quality is immediately apparent, the stretch to the fabric is firm but so forgiving (and supportive!), the pockets are deep and secure, and the zippers are everything you could hope them to be. I'll definitely be ordering more/wearing these on every hike until they disintegrate.

Great shorts!

These are probably the most comfortable shorts I own, and the pockets are delightfully much deeper than the average pocket on pants designed for women. The design also isn’t too gendered, in my opinion, inasmuch as clothing designs have gender (subjective). So far the zipper hasn’t been a source of- ahem- crotch discomfort, like I was worried about. I will say I haven’t tried peeing in the shorts, so I can’t review that aspect of them.

I’m thinking of buying a pair of pants from Gnara as well, just haven’t gotten there yet.


These are amazing! They fit so beautifully and do not ride up at all while hiking!

The perfect hiking shorts!

I’m an avid hiker and I have been looking for practical, well-designed hiking shorts that aren’t frumpy. I jumped on the chance to order a pair when they were on a flash sale and I am so impressed with the quality of the construction and the design. The pockets are capacious and well-placed, and the cut of the shorts is flattering. I’m normally a size 6 in pants, but my perimenopausal belly (and high waist) put me into the size 8 in these shorts. I can’t wait to wear these on my hiking adventures this summer and fall!

I have 2 pairs of gnara pants but with summer coming up, I got a pair of the shorts during a sale. I love them. The pockets are deep and offer a smaller zippered option on one side which is great. Other than that, they’re pretty standard to the pants with all the features I love, front to back zipper, tie cords for the waist, comfy yet stretch fabric, some what water repellent. Love my gnats!
