I loved the look of these shorts on the STP site, and the price was reasonable, so I took a chance. I'm so glad I did! These shorts are outstanding. They are probably the lightest weight pair of shorts I've ever owned, and I'm a clothes hound. They're also extremely well made, and the fabric is a nice blend of sturdy and firm, but somehow soft and comfortable and unbelievably lightweight. I would call the color more of a light seafoam green rather than cool grey, and I'm not sure they will suit everyone's eye, but I like that it's not a color you see everyday. I love the belt loops, including the wide one in the center back, and the double loops on the front left and front right. My only (very) slight criticism is that they could be an inch or two longer for my taste. They hit me about an inch and a half above the knee cap, and I'd prefer slightly longer. But otherwise the fit is perfect, in my opinion. I'm 6'2", 226, with a 38 waist, and some 38 shorts and pants are a tad snug for me, but these were perfect and very comfortable. I think they are a 5-star product regardless of price, but the lower price seals the deal on a 5-star rating. Love these shorts!

I bought these for my husband. My opinion: they look nice! His opinion: He likes the fit (he's a former 42, passing through 40, targeting 38) and the 40 is fitting him perfectly right now. He likes that they are quite light weight. He only wears shorts (works from home) and I am noticing he is grabbing these first when they come out of the wash. He doesn't fish, and was at first put off by the rather obvious PFG logo, but now says it doesn't bother him, that the rest of the features compensate for the obnoxious logo. I wish STP had them in another color, but I'll probably just buy him one more of the cool grey.
