ARC'TERYX RELAXED FIT: Arc'teryx relaxed fit garments rely on both articulation and higher volume patterns to provide better comfort and mobility. This is a looser fit that provides room for a base layer plus a thick cold weather mid-layer. If you will NOT wear this style over a base or mid-layer, you may consider sizing down if you prefer a closer fit. Check out the size guide to learn how to calculate your body measurements before selecting a size.

Got these for my girl. Really shows off her curves well. I own a few Arc'Teryx items myself and it's definitely high quality. It's expenive up front but these will last a long time. Well worth the money. My girl is a size 2 and these fit her well. I keep telling her how good she looks when she wears them!
These shorts are UH-mazing. I wear them camping/backpacking/hiking because they are comfortable and VERY fast drying. I also wear them around town, because the back pockets make your rump look great (or so my husband says). I love that they aren't daisy dukes but they aren't something my grandma would wear either. I am somewhere between 5'1 and 5'2. Last summer I was 120-125 lbs and needed a size 4. This summer I am 110-112 lbs and need a size two. Hope that helps when choosing a size. Careful trying to get wrinkles out--even with an iron on low, it will easily scorch the fabric. Put them in the dryer on medium and remove promptly- I found they don't shrink much.
I recently went backpacking in the Canadian Rockies and came back knowing I had to get new hiking shorts.. mine were ill-fitted, to loose, and honestly not very flattering. Purchased these and they fit wonderfully, are stylish, and I like that I can easily flip up the hem line to make them a little shorter when it's hot. I love the back pockets and the slim fit. I'm 5'9", 130lbs so don't want something baggy, as hiking pants/shorts often are. Very flattering and I won't just be wearing them hiking!
