by patndave Weak material strength
I have worn the St. John's Bay hiking shorts for many years. I was sadly disappointed in my latest purchase of these shorts. Something seems to have changed in the quality of the material used, I am referring to the denim colors - both dark and light denim.. The shorts rip/tear when put under a moderate amount of stress. In my case, when stepping forward and bending at the waist to scoop dirt with a shovel. In one case, the material ripped on the first day they were worn. In the the other case, the material ripped on the third time they were worn. See the attached photo. Very disappointed in what has been a staple of my wardrobe for many years.

by BLACKMIKE Great quality, excellant fit, priced right by J.C.Penny!
The reason J.C. Penny carries St. John's Bay, is the obvious quality! St. John's Bay knows the market needs hiking shorts with an inseam less than 10" to 12", these are 7", and I am 6'1"! These shorts are not only a great cut, but totally functional! I watch for Penny's to put them on sale, and they do! THANKS

Rated 4 out of 5 by chiggerosa Shorts short.
I ordered 2 pair of these shorts, and loved them. The elastic in the waist is perfect for someone whose weight tends to fluctuate. I like the number of pockets, and find the shorts to be very comfortable. Thus, I ordered 2 more pair of shorts. The 2nd pair of shorts were made with as much quality as the first 2 pair; however, they seemed to be 2 sizes smaller and I cannot wear them. As I had already taken the tags off and threw them away, I cannot return them.

I was pleased to see JCPenney bring back my favorite shorts. I have several pair that have seen better days since the St. Johns Bay hiking shorts disappeared from your shelves. The short inseam of these shorts fit me to a t. I have purchased four pair since I found them in the local store this February. please continue to carry these shorts in the future. Thank you
