These shorts are very light in White Sierra's typical material. They are activewear - nothing dressy or trendy about them. As others have said, the lack of a front zipper is perhaps the only drawback but they won't be difficult to pull down to get the job done. I'm 6'0" with a 32" inseam and the bottom of the shorts come to about an inch and a half above the knee. The zippered pocket will hold both cell phone and wallet. More than enough room in the butt for normal sized folks and will accommodate all but the porkiest folks.

Fitment is spot on. the strap only involves the front of the pant but because the elastic is almost all the way around, this is more than sufficient. material is perfect for travel/active use--100% nylon. Not enamored by the lining--not sure what the purpose is unless you are wearing these commando. two zippered pockets total and front open side pockets are nice. Wish they were 2" longer but they are not too short.

I ordered 2 pair of these shorts and really like the fit, as they are loose fitting but not baggy and will be great for active activities. I am a fan of the built in liner as they make the short cooler and more comfortable on hot humid days. I am 6' 1" with a 34" waist and ordered a large and found the fit and length almost perfect. Overall a very comfortable light weight loose fitting short.
