Icebreaker Women's Destiny Short
Love these shorts. The fabric is soft and movements are unrestricted. The fabric feels thin but found it to also be very durable. Hiked 10 miles in them and on the Slick Rock Trail in Moab and they were comfortable the entire time. Sizing is relaxed around the legs, drawstring is handy if the waist starts to feel a little looser than you want.

Destiny Shorts Will Travel
The Destiny Shorts are well tailored and very comfortable. As they fit me well, I was concerned that after washing they could shrink. To my surprise, they didn't! Great product. They are my hiking/backpacking go-to shorts.

A bit big in size, for muscular legs
I really like the destiny capri, so I decided to try the shorts. I ordered both size 27 (WAY too big) and then size 26 (still too big in the waist & legs). I usually wear size 27 waist (in Terra shorts), or size 26 waist in destiny capri, or laurel pants. I'm 5'6", 118 #, 27 waist & 35 hips. I found these too wide in the waist, and too big in the legs for me. I think if you have really muscular legs, these would be perfectly comfortable for you. The material is lightweight for summer, and high quality. There's a tie to cinch in the waist, but they were just too big for me.

Nice drape, fabric, and fit
These shorts have a lovely drape, not the stiff cotton blends typical of this style short. The wool cotton blend is lightweight, and virtually wrinkle-free, so they look great after wearing them multiple days before washing. I get multiple uses out of these shorts. They can be dressed up or down. I absolutely love the hand of the fabric. Be sure to size down. I am 5'7" and 127 lbs., and the 27 fit great. I bought a 28 as well. They fit too, but are baggy. I love them both. I wish Icebreaker made more styles of shorts.

Worn every day
I love these shorts, as a matter of fact, I now own several pairs as I think they are being discontinued. The length and rise are perfect on my 5'3" frame. I love the wool blend -much better than synthetic materials!

Lovely looking shorts that combine style and practicality
However, the shorts were a baggy small and there were lots of loose threads. For the price, I would expect a perfect fit and perfect tailoring. Shame as I loved the look of them.

The AT busted my butt, but not my shorts
The Destiny shorts did not restrict my movements as I scaled over boulders and ascended steep climbs. I had to guess at my size and fortunately guessed correctly. Very light weight and comfortable..

Great shorts, fit is very baggy
I read previous reviews stating the waist was huge on these and ordered a size smaller than I usually do in Icebreaker. The waist was still huge, and the rest of the shorts were gigantic, especially the legs, which was a disappointment because the quality and style of these shorts were great. I considered exchanging for another smaller size, but I think the leg openings would still be too wide for my taste, so I chose to return. I have pretty muscular thighs and having the legs on shorts be too big is pretty unusual for me. If the fit were right, I would have given 5 stars.
