REI’s 8-inch Trailmade shorts feature two hand pockets and two rear patch pockets, but the standout feature is the cargo pocket that offers additional storage with its horizontal zip for secure, easy access. The fabric is rated UPF 50-plus for optimal protection from the sun while its water-repellent coating helps shed water. The shorts also have a drawstring waist as well as belt loops, adding comfort and convenience.

Shoppers appreciated the shorts’ performance, with one calling them the “perfect shorts for an active day,” adding, “I love that it’s perfect for workouts and has enough pockets to run some errands afterward.” Another wrote, “I’ve done several hikes this summer with these shorts, and they’re perfect for warm weather.”

Some shoppers even compared them favorably to Patagonia shorts. “Twice as good and half the price of the comparable Patagonia shorts,” one shopper noted. “Better side-zip pocket, no front-fly droop, and almost the last pair with belt loops…Little details, like the key holder loop over the left pocket, etc., show the thought and quality built in. Hope they keep these around for years.”

If you’re looking for a versatile pair of shorts for hiking or any other summer activity, you won’t find a better value than REI Co-op’s Trailmade Shorts now that they’re just $35. This sale will only last as long as the stock does, so pick up yours soon.
