These fit well - I'm 5'6" and typically wear a size 6, which I ordered in these. The buttons on the waist could be drawn in and the crotch sagged in the front. I have a shorter rise/waist. Great outdoor material, felt light and comfy, would dry quickly. Style constructed enough for adding nice top and accessories to dress up as needed if traveling.

I LOVE these shorts! I have been wearing them for years - probably have 5-6 pair at this point. I had been hoping for some time that Royal Robbins would make them in a navy blue. This Phoenix blue is not quite that, but reasonably close to a "bright" navy. They are cool and comfortable in the Texas heat, the pockets hold a surprising amount and they have a loose comfortable fit while still appearing fairly trim on the body. The sizing does seem to vary from year-to-year. I ordered my usual size 4 and they are looser than some of my other pairs from earlier years. On my 5'2" 118-lb. frame, I have room to insert my fist in the waistband. I like that fit for active wear.

Purchased in both a size 6 and size 8 and the 6 fit perfectly. I am 5'4" and 128lbs with an hour glass type figure. I like the color and cut of the shorts.

The waist sizing on Royal Robbins pants Is not comparable to other brands I wear. The 12 was snug and as I mentioned before, most of my pants/shorts are size 8 or 10. I chose the 12 after reading reviews. (Thanks to all those who contribute to the reviews). 12, too small, 14 way too big. Using the button tab on the waistband to make it smaller doesn't work. It buckles the pant in the rear where you are trys to take it in. Because of the way the short is made with the pocket meeting the seam, the tailor can't take them in. So disappointing! I really like the features and fabric of these shorts!

Royal Robbins sizing is way off! After reading the reviews I decided to order a larger size than I normally wear. They were way too tight so I returned them for 2 sizes larger. The two sizes larger won't even stay on, they literally fall off. So, I'm going to try for the one in between. The reason I'm bothering is because of the great fabric and features of these shorts. It seems they are well made. The pockets are great and the fabric is very nice; lightweight.
