Corrugate Guide Shorts

From the food plot to the trout stream, the Corrugate Guide Short delivers breathable durability in the heat of summer. Our ultra-durable 4-way stretch nylon is equipped with an exterior DWR to fend off water and brush without restricting range of motion. Configured with six low-profile pockets, both drop-style and zippered, this short can discretely and securely hold GPS units, tags and fly boxes away from your waist and out of sight. This piece is machine washable and will dry quickly over a branch or on a line. These features make the Corrugate Guide Short a versatile, summer style from the blind to the bar that will outlast your favorite hiking boots.

    WOAH! Love these shortsReview by SS_Hunts
    Currently own a pair of Kanab 2.0s and ordered these shorts for hike training in the Oklahoma mountains (yes we actually have some) thinking they might get torn up a little bit with the stickers and thorn bushes...but I was wrong. These shorts took a licking and kept on ticking. I worn them for 3 days straight and never once had an issue. the burrs brushed right off and there's not a single tear or pulled thread. The weather was pretty warm during the day (95+ degrees and over 50% humidity) but the short didn't seem to care. When the sun finally went down a slight breeze picked up and the shorts dried very quickly and were comfortable for the entire weekend; I never once wished I had brought a second pair with me and thank God I didn't wear my cotton cargo shorts. I'll definitely be ordering another pair in the future and would recommend these to anyone. (Posted on 8/21/2017)
    Rugged and ComfartableReview by Eric
    These are great shorts. I was a little concerned at first with the tapered fit. I thought they may be a little tight but after a few hikes I really like the fit. The tapered legs keep the shorts from catching on brush. The stretch allows you to move freely and with comfort. They are rugged and I have no concern of them catching on brush and being ripped.

    If you don't skip leg day these stil fitReview by Nickster
    Been wearing these on and off for the past week and a half as often as possible and I got to say from wearing them casually, chasing my kids, and hiking around the Tetons they're my new favorite do everything shorts. I wear a 34" waist and these shorts leave a little room in the waist but still allow for a comfy and flexible fit in the seat and thighs for those of us who don't shy away from squats and deads, plus the elasticity in the fabric allows you to
    get your inner ninja on with little to no inhibitions. I'm a fan. If you're like me and loathe wearing pants in hot weather, don't skip leg day, and aren't afraid to hunt and hike like a kiwi, limey, or Aussie these are for you!! (Posted on 8/18/2017)
    The most comfortable pair of shorts I own!Review by Jeremiah
    I have been wearing these all summer long and have to say they are the most comfortable pair of shorts I have ever owned. They stretch great, and the slim fit on my legs doesn't leave things too baggy like most shorts on the market. They also breath great and keep me cool on extra warm days. (Posted on 8/15/2017)
    Just what I wantedReview by Keith
    I really like shorts with that little bit of stretch that still fit a bit loose. This fit the mold perfectly. Material is excellent, fit is good, color is great. My only potential complaint would be the length is a bit longer than I prefer but I knew this was going to be a longer length short when I ordered it. (Posted on 8/15/2017)
    Amazing!!!!Review by Daniel
    These shorts are amazing! I wear them for my hot summer hunts and also backpacking adventures. I've falling in the water a couple times and they dry out fast.

    I'm glad I have a couple pairs.

    My only complaint, which is super critical, is the side pocket could be a little deeper or have a button to close the top. I put my cell phone in that pocket and would be nice to know it is safe from falling out.

    Just as great as the pants.Review by Seth T.
    I bought these recently for a trip from IL to FL for a little vacation. I've had the Corrugate pants since they came out and I love them so I figured the shorts would be great too and I wasn't disappointed. Stylish enough to pass my girlfriends test I wore them on the plane and pretty much didn't take them off the whole trip. I'll definaltely be buying these in Fusion. (Posted on 7/17/2017)
    New faves Review by Ryan
    These really are nice shorts, comfortable, stretchy, I like the tighter fit around the leg than traditional cargo shorts. These are well made, nicely stitched. Very happy these (Posted on 7/13/2017)
    Mostly love....Review by Gabe
    These shorts are super comfortable and move/flex with you just like the Corrugate pants. Love the material and pocket placement. My only complaint is that, with all the elastic in the waist, I have to size down to get them to stay up when you are hiking with a pack, but that makes the fit everywhere else a bit on the snug side. I still really like these shorts, but I prefer a specific sized fit rather than a S/M/L/XL range personally. (Posted on 7/12/2017)
    These Shorts are the bomb.comReview by Sidney
    To start off I prefer shorts because of my prosthetic legs; that way I can make adjustments on them. These shorts are so comfortable yet very durable. I love the pants too but Id have a hard time not wearing the shorts most of the time. The pockets are in perfect position and large enough to store loads of gadgets. Took them on a backpacking trip and they are so light that I used them for trail running. I'm planning on getting more. (Posted on 7/6/2017)
    My favorite shortsReview by Alex Sterling
    I bought these shorts in the dry earth color and couldn't be happier. I wear them mountain biking, out to the bar, and wherever else. Mine are about mid knee when standing. I wear a large in firstlite pants and the large in shorts was right on. I'm normally a 34-36* 32 in men's pants. Lot's of stretch and light/ breathe too. (Posted on 6/22/2017)
    Awesome ShortsReview by Ryan
    Super good pair of shorts. I have worn these a but already and there is nothing I would change about them. Worth every penny. The stretch is great and the fit is great. Took them out fishing wiping all sorts of garbage on them and just threw them in the wash and it all came right out. Bought 2 pair I like them so much. (Posted on 6/21/2017)
    Can't get enough of these shorts!Review by OutdoorsGeorge
    Probably my favorite pair of shorts I wear. Just in time for the summer! I literally wear these shorts everywhere.. Hunting, camping, casual, you name it! I took these on a family trip to Zion Natl. Park and the only thing I regret is not buying more of these. They fit true to size, really comfortable to wear, and pockets are perfectly placed. Bottom line is these are a must! Buy a pair and you'll never regret it. (Posted on 6/21/2017)
    Very comfortable shorts.Review by wthomas333
    My corrugate shorts have really grown on me. Just like another reviewer, I'm just waiting on my size to be stock so I can order another. Love the stretch and feel of them. They are very comfortable and breath well. The only thing I wish was different is the pocket on the right leg. Just a little too small for some of the larger phones made these days.

    best shorts EVER.Review by Jack
    I was at the Total Archery Challenge in San Antonio and saw the Hushin Crew in these, I didn't even know they made the guide shorts!! I ordered a pair soon as I got back. Another quality product from first lite, I'm going to need a couple more as they're my new every day shorts. Fishin, nice bbq with the family, scouting... best shorts you can get!

    Best Shorts Ever!Review by TenkaraTim
    I just got these in the mail and would order another pair immediately if the size/color I wanted was in stock. These are absolutely perfect, they just became my favorite pair of shorts and I'd been wearing the same other brand of shorts for years. Great for everyday, fishing, shooting at the range, .... The side pocket holds my phone perfectly. I'll be owning more of these soon. (Posted on 6/2/2017)
    Best Shorts I've Ever OwnedReview by Guide Guy
    No joke, these are the most comfortable shorts I've ever used. Stretchy, just the right length and they seem durable. Loved these things on a recent Spring Bear hunt. (Posted on 6/1/2017)
