Nice material, too low rise and tight

I ordered a size L (being about a 12 on the bottom) and was sad to see these shorts were just too tight in all the wrong places. Look great from the back but the front is not the same story. Really nice material and well made but definitely size up or try on first.

Great walking shorts

I bought these shorts for a holiday. There is good stretch in them making them great for walking

Went on a 11 mile walk to day in there and it was very hot and muggy. These stayed cool all day long and are so comfortable to wear as they are stretchy. Perfect for the 30 or so stiles I had to climb over! Well done decathlon!

Good walking shorts, Great value for money. Comfortable. They tend to come up on the small size so if ordering on line go for a couple of sizes larger than usual.

Great shorts

Nice pair of shorts at a great price. Comfortable for long walks, especially in the heat, good fit. Like the belt and pockets.

I ordered a size 14 but received a 12 and it was far too small. I think they probably come up small

Ok but not fantastic

They ride up and bunch around the groin area and go swish swish when I walk. They have been ditched from hiking gear, but they are very comfortable and lightweight with a good bit of stretch so are my favourite climbing shorts.

Great Shorts but Strange Sizing

The problem I experience with all the shorts and trousers I ordered is the sizing. Extra small is too tight. I can just about get them over my thighs but doing them up is a different matter! So I ordered small and you could fit two of me in the small size!!! Sizing issue aside the shorts are great, comfortable (they should be given how loose they are!), stayed dry in extreme conditions and look good too.

Moisture transfer test

The fabric's ability to wick away perspiration and keep you dry is measured according to several criteria: the absorbency of the fabric, the ability of the fabric not to saturate with sweat, speed of drying, etc. Level 1/5 is suitable for activities of low intensity or not generating a lot of sweat. All our hiking shorts have a performance of 3/5.

Our commitment to consume less water with this product

Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce our impact on the environment, we opted for a bulk dyeing or "dope-dyed" method for the black colour model. This method incorporates the dye pigments from the yarn manufacturing process onwards, and consumes less water.The black MH500 shorts use this new dyeing process, which we want to replicate with other colours in the near future.

A score for comparing products' environmental impact

A product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using various indicators.A score from A to E is produced to help you make a responsible choice.This rating is used to easily identify the products with the best environmental performance.This is done by making a comparison between products of the same family (e.g. backpacks).Decathlon is a voluntary supporter of this environmentally-friendly labelling approach.
