Great everyday shorts

Reviewed by MTtrailrunner from MT on Friday, August 10, 2012
I've been wearing these more and more. Love the material..lightweight and stretchy. The bit of stretch makes these great for hiking, and they breath reasonably well, and dry quickly. Maybe a bit loose in the leg openings for those who prefer athletic fit, because with the stretch they could have gotten away with a bit tighter leg. But as is makes for a nice, casual fit, as the gusset inseam is much appreciate. Be as active as you want in these. I'm a bit iffy about the vertical security pocket on the leg..standard horizontal ones usually work great for me, especially when traveling and I always seem to end up with various tickets, receipts, phone, wallet, whatever else by the end of the day, and a couple of cargo stows come in handy. But, the low volume thing on these shorts is okay, something different, and I suppose make for a tidier look. By contrast he main hand pockets are a nice depth and hold a ton. Also worth a mention is the cushy waistband material and the pockets have a really quality mesh in them, noticeably superior to some of the cheaper shorts I own. These are expensive feeling shorts..good stuff. Sizewise..I'm usually either a 33 or 34 in shorts and pants, and the 34s in these fit me well. If you're in between sizes, probably opt to order up, as they do have an integrated belt you can cinch up if need be.
