I have 3 pairs of these in the long pant style and the shorts are excellent as well. Quality Simms clothing!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mike N from Maryland on Friday, May 2, 2014These are nice shorts, but the sizing is funny, and I suspect they were designed by someone who doesn't do much wet wading.
I'm normally in between a 34 and 36 inch waist depending on brand. XL's in these shorts fit me perfectly in the waist, but they are way too long in the crotch for wet wading. I guess they would probably look less fashionable if they were more package-hugging, but in my experience, wet wading shorts with a long rise (I think that's the technical term) tend to rip in pretty embarrassing places if you fish like me climbing over boulders and logs, inadvertently doing the splits on slippery rocks etc.
So, at the price they make great summer shorts for hanging in the drift boat, by the BBQ or looking the part at the fly shop.
Reviewed by KH from NYC on Saturday, February 15, 2014I've always been a Simms fan and their shirts, shorts and pants in XL always fit me. That's until I tried the Flyte shorts. The rise isn't very long, the waist and seat are more like a Large size. Had to return.

Reviewed by Dudeyak from Texas / Montana on Monday, December 30, 2013Great quality short, as is usual of all Simms' products. This short in size L (I'm a 33"/34", depending on brand), and fit is fine. Seems well-made, pockets useful. Material should be quick-drying.
