"The pockets are great! The material is light and durable. Highly recomended!!"
"I found these shorts to be great - super-light weight, perfect for hiking or other outdoor activities!"
"These are the best hiking shorts I could have ever dreamed of (miles above anything else on the market for women)"
"High waisted, lightweight, deep pockets, enough stretch to move, and long enough to avoid thigh rubbing"
"Love the high waist and that the legs are long and loose, but also easy to fold up"
Så fina, perfekt passform 👌🏼
I have these shorts without the adjustable waist in green and absolutely love their cut and proportions.
The adjustable waist of the black version is not working for me at all - the snaps dig into my body when I wear the shorts with a backpack, rendering them useless for hiking.
Please keep our options open by offering both versions - with and without the snaps! Love AW and looking forward to seeing Esther shorts in new colors (hope they will come in camel for spring 2023! wink wink)
Ester Outdoor Shorts with Adjustable Waist
Thank you so much for sharing! ♡
Helt underbara shorts! Så sköna med den justerbara midjan, smidiga fickor, och minst väldigt snygga.
Visst är de härliga, vi håller helt med dig! Tack för att du delar din recension, Ellinor. ♡
Riktigt bra med knapparna så det går att justera storleken . Snygga byxor som får formen av en snygg kjol.
Tack för din fina recension, Viola. Det betyder så mycket för oss att få höra. ♡
Jättefina och sköna. Kul att de går att storleksanpassa på ett smidigt och snyggt sätt.
Tack för din fina recension, Malin. ♡
Jag brukar inte ha på mig shorts men Ester har jag jag på mig nästan hela sommaren
Åh, så himla roligt att du gillar dem och har haft användning för dem. Det glädjer oss verkligen! ♡
At first fitting them i was like hmm, different from Amelia and Astrid pants.
Bit short, hmm adjustable waistband hmm strange...
But after wearing them for a while, I am like wow wow wow , great shorts, Nice to not have to put in a belt, short is cool, great fit
I took them out on a daytrip, for walking, no rubbing of my thighs , Perfect shorts I Would say
They now in en out the washing ;-) perfect for Belgium Summer (above 20 degrees is short weather)
Yay, we are so happy that you like them (eventually haha). We hope you will continue to enjoy wearing them. Thank you for your review, Torill. ♡
I just recieved my shorts and I love them. Great for every activity, comfortable and the high waist is perfect.
There is only one slight problem (for me personally) I have a small waist and big thighs (and butt) and even if these shorts fit with the adjustable waistband I would prefer if the legs were just a tiny bit wider. This being said, I love them and if you have my kind of body type they will fit you and look great, maybe just not the way they fit the models.
I would definitely buy them again and I don’t think I will ever be able to buy another brand of outdoor shorts.
Thank you so much for sharing your feedback and thoughts with us. It means so much for us to hear, Sara. ♡
By this point I sort of expect everything to come out of Astrid Wild to be loveable, and the Ester shorts were no exception. Such a light but sturdy fabric and great fit. I am a 36/38 and bought the 38. They are a bit on the big side but with the adjustable waist it works just fine. When I get the green ones, which I will, I will get the 36 though. Perfect for any outdoor activity or just as summer shorts, they don’t look super-outdoorsy, just like really nice shorts!
Thank you so much for sharing your review, Klara! We are so happy that you like them and we hope you will continue to enjoy wearing them. You are more than welcome to try the green ones as well. ♡
