M's Solitude Short is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfortable! So far I love these shorts. They are extremely comfortable and seem very durable. I have not ventured out in the woods wearing them yet but I'm sure they will be great for hiking and camping. They weigh next to nothing and dry really quick too. If I had to name one negative thing about them it would be that they could stand to be a 10" inseam instead of an 11". That's a very minor complaint though and didn't warrant a drop in overall rating. I loved the first pair so much that I immediately bought a second pair in another color. I don't think you will be disappointed in these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The greatest athletic shorts out there These are probably my favorite and most worn piece of clothing that BD makes. They are the best athletic shorts I have ever owned and they cover uses from climbing, lifting, and running to just hanging out on a hot day. I love how light and stretchy they are, and I am surprised at how well they have held up given how thin the material is. Quick note on the style: this seasons version looks like solid colors in the pictures on the website, but they actually have a subtle pattern to them. I think they look great, but just an FYI for anyone used to the old style or who can't tell from the pictures (like me).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very versatile shorts I wasn't sure what to expect as I ordered my first pair of charcoal color on the website. I am 30.5" inch waist and the small fits perfect. They are an extremly light material that drys fast. So far I have used them for hot yoga, running, hiked the Napali coast and actually surfed a session in then too. They worked amazing for all of it. The gusseted crotch really helped in hot yoga as my leg movements were less hampered by the shorts sticking to my sweaty legs than normal. I normally wear boardies with stretch to hot yoga but they are not gusseted and there was a big difference. I think they are still a little long for hot yoga but work better than anything else I have. They were awesome on the Napali hike. We swam out there at the waterfall and the shorts were dry in no time on the hike back. I like them so much I actually ordered a 2nd pair in the blue color

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Darn Good Shorts Have you ever wanted to wear something that feels like it doesn't exist? Something that gives you the range of motion of wearing nothing? That also happens to be of the same material-ish of board shorts so it's definitely kosher to also swim/paddle/cliff dive after a nice climb? Well this is about as close as you can get. They're uber comfy, super light, fast drying, and stretchy. These shorts are a win-win.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid-tude shorts These shorts are solid. I have a 33" waist and ordered a (L) size and they fit just right. I'm 6'02" and the short length is just to my knees. There is a loop in the center of the waistband to connect with your chalk bag, and the drawstring ensures that the shorts remain tight when in use. I've used these while lifting weights, running, climbing, and doing yoga--no complaints. I plan to buy another pair soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good... I have had the need to buy several pairs of these over the last year because I find my self wanting to wear them every chance I get. They are the most versatile shorts I own. I use them for lounging around the house climbing outdoors or in the gym, trail runs, and on the water. I couldn't be happier with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best shorts ever! I've had these for over two years and wear them several times a week for gym sessions in winter and daily wear in summer, climbing, hiking, lounging, ultimate fun-hog shorts. they are great at everything. Amazingly they show little signs of wear. highly recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Breezy I like these shorts because they feel like I am wearing nothing at all. I climb in them and use them for backcountry excursions of various flavors. They are a bit like glorified Russell Brand shorts but without the big R.
