Closeouts. Any prolonged time spent in the hot sun should be done in the smart protection of Outdoor Research's Solitaire shorts, made of quick-drying Supplex® nylon with ultimate UV shielding built right into the fabric.

These shorts fit better after washing them. I am 5'2" and found them to be a little too long when I put them on. They came to just above my knee cap and were a little too wide at the bottom which gave me a dumpy kind of look. I decided to keep the two colors I ordered and found that after washing them they shrunk in length and width enough to improve the overall look on me. Am very happy I kept them. When I sit down the shorts still give a nice amount of coverage so that I am comfortable and I don't stick to whatever I am sitting on. They are true to size and look and feel like they are well made plus they have a bit of stretch. YES!

I took these on a 5 day cruise as the shorts I would wear when we were in port. I don't like carrying a purse or backpack unless I can help it, so these shorts were perfect. I could put my ID and room key in one side pocket and put cash in a zippered rear pocket, so I always felt my money was secure.
These shorts wash well, and are long enough to cover adequately and provide some protection from sun and other elements, and are quick drying.

Was looking for nice clothing for a long trip to Se Asia and needed multi-functional clothing. These were cute but had no give at all and would be the worst piece of clothing to have on a trip. Sent back.
