The Mountain Hardwear AP Short is cut from the same cloth, so to speak, as the pant that they share a name with. Fit, function, style, and durability are all rolled up in one.

I've been a fan of the Mountain Hardwear AP pants for a while, so I thought I'd give the shorts a try. I have a fairly trim (non-athletic) build and really I like the slim cut of the AP pants, and I found the fit of the AP shorts to be identical to the pants. I'm 6 feet, about 175 lbs, and the 34" waist is a perfect fit. I prefer knee length shorts, so I appreciate the longer 11" inseam offered. The light denim feel of the AP fabric feels more like a lightweight stretchy jean than stretch polyester, and I feel like this looks better and offers superior protection and durability. The deep mesh pockets hold on to gear well and provide good breathability. Minimalist zippers and subtle thigh pocket make these shorts function like cargos but with a much cleaner design. These fit my requirements perfectly and I'll be picking up more colors. Highly recommended!
