I really liked the color and quality of the shorts. I ordered a large and it was much too big and had to be returned. I chose to not exchange it as I feared the medium would be too short (I am 6') and I like my board shorts to fit as shorts, not bikini bottoms.

Since the demise of "fanny packs" I've been searching for an alternative. "Cargo pocket pants" was as close as I could get for carrying at least my wallet, in addition to the usual stuff that goes in my pocket. Unfortunately, clothing designers hadn't figured out how to put pockets on pant legs without making the pants look like you're wearing a tent... at least for slim guys. These pants do have a tailored fit and two nice big cargo pockets, one zipped and one flapped. They look great with and without stuff in the cargo pockets, and the material is as advertised. The only problem is the zipper fly. It's definitely not long enough to use. In other words, if you have to pee, you have to unbuckle, unbutton, unzip and drop 'em.
