    These 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.

    I'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.

    I have 3 pairs of these in the long pant style and the shorts are excellent as well. Quality Simms clothing!

    Great 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.

    Great for fishing as well as casual wear as long as there are no fish guts on them

    I wanted something light and quick dry for saltwater fishing/wading. These shorts will be great

    As with other Simms products the shorts are well made, light weight, fast drying, sized right and comfortable.
