by Neddy St. John's bay Hiking shorts my summer uniform.
The past several years my St. John's Bay hiking shorts come out of the chest in mid-May and are worn to mid-October, my personal favorite colors are all of them. They wear like iron, no noticeable fade, and are the next best thing to wearing nothing at all. The elastic waist is a blessing for anyone who can gain an inch or two while tucking in at a BBQ, and pockets galore, front and back. I highly recommend these shorts, you could pay a lot more at your favorite outdoor store and get a lot less in the way of comfort or value.

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 5 out of 5 by Tandee Great material, easily washed and dried
My hubby's weight fluctuates during the summer. These shorts are great as they have a built in expandable, elastic waist, wash easily and come out of the dryer without needing a touch up. They keep him very cool in our North West summer humidity and they look great on him. I would definitely recommend them to anyone. The size is true fit unlike many items whose sizes differ by manufacturer. Additionally, I purchased three pairs of these shorts in various colors and my husband is really enjoying them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SkipTimalou The Best!
Maybe 12 yrs. ago, late summer, I was shopping in Penney's and came across these shorts on sale. I bought a couple pair and have worn nothing but these, warm weather, ever since. Not the same two pair mind you but quite a few more since then. One pair, rotated with several others last me 2-3+, summers and I am no couch potato. Love all the pockets and the NOT TOO LONG pant legs of these shorts. They are perfect for me. I don't even bother shopping for shorts any place else, I know exactly what I want and where to get them. Thanks JCP.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dani My husband was pleased with these shorts!
The shorts were on sale at a fairly reasonable price so I purchased them for Father's Day for my husband. He likes them. The only thing he wasn't super fond of is the elastic waist. Other than that, the shorts were a great purchase and I may buy more.

Quality fabric in these hiking shorts. It's so nice to be able to find a pair of shorts that are not baggy and hanging down past your knees. I've had a pair of these for over 10 years and they are still going strong. Just bought 6 more (in various colors) because I'm afraid I won't ever be able to find a decent pair of shorts made for my skinny legs! Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by letsgo32246 Just great service and great product!
I had bought these particular shorts in the store previously, but they had to order them since I have an unusual size that is limited in the stores. I thought this time, I would just order them online and save myself some time. It was quite easy, I received e-mail updates as each step of the mailing processed was being processed. I received my package timely and was quite pleased with the product. I have always enjoyed buying my clothes at JCPenney and will continue to buy there, whether it's in the store on online!
