The shorts are super lightweight, which is good if that is what your looking for. Very easy to pack. I would not wear them if I were going to do some rough work as they probably would get destroyed, but for casual wear, warm weather or hiking they should be great. They are a cut a little bigger than normal for large, but they are close to a true large. I ordered 4 pairs, 3 were good. One was marked large but was really an XL and I had to send it back to get another one that was sized correctly. The leg openings are larger than average. Again, not a problem, but some may not like the cut. For the price a great deal.

Very light yet sturdy material. I have worn them hiking, kayaking and mountain biking. Quick to dry. I call them my "barely there" shorts. Beware the caveats about sizing. I am a 36" waist and got the large size which is meant to fit a 36"-38" waist. There is no elastic in the waistband so do the math on how big they are to fit a 38" waist. That being said, I have big thighs and love the fact that they do no ride up on me when mountain biking.

I bought these on Barn Burner sale - so cheap, how could I not. I ordinarily wear a 34 waist and the smallest size they had was "L" 36-38. The reviews were mixed on if these were true to size or not, so I took a chance. Looking at them now, I'd say they are true to size - it's a bit big on me, but I'll probably keep them and wear them with a belt (or stitch in some elastic), because they weigh nothing, look great, and were practically free. :-)

These run a little big on me, or maybe I've lost more weight... They appear to be sturdy, and really do weigh nothing, The side pocket, which would be perfect for a smart phone, is divided into a pen size and a flip phone size pocket. I have several other slacks and shorts with the same 'feature'. Overall, I'm very happy, particularly given the price.
