I usually don't wear fishing shorts for fishing but for casual wear. Great quality, nylon material breathes well and is cool on the skin. Shorts have hidden elastic waist. The down-side is only 1 rear pocket.

Ever fished with Simms gear? These shorts are worth the MSRP and a steal at STP prices. Fished several days on Henry's Fork last year with these. They dry very quickly and shed water (to a degree). Very comfortable with hidden stretch material in side waist. I am a 31" waist and the small is perfect. Get a pair or two before their gone!

As we here in Northern Virginia (up by Washington, DC) are going into summer (typical low land southern states summer -- hot and sticky), these short should be just the "ticket" for summer wear. They are easily the lightest weight shorts I own. Not sure they would they would stand up to rigors of backpacking, but they seem more than adequate for everyday casual and/or recreational wear.
