Closeouts. Fording streams or fishing the surf, these stretch nylon Encounter shorts from Woolrich are designed to get wet and dry quickly, plus they feature a moisture-control band at the inner waist for comfort under the noonday sun.

These are without a doubt my favorite pair of shorts unfortunately they do run large. I have lost some weight and now need a 38". The stretch fit probably adds 1/2 size. I hope Sierra offers them next year they will be on my buy list.

These shorts have it all. Comfort, dry really quickly, versatile. They are rugged enough to hike in, smooth enough to wear around town. Be warned, however, that once you start to wear these you won't want to wear anything else in hot weather -- and some restaurants are snooty about accepting shorts.

I like these shorts, and just ordered two more in the other colors. The shorts have a slightly stretchy material that makes them very comfortable and keeps them looking good. I ordered my normal size - 34 - and I need to put a belt on to keep them up. However, I prefer that, as I would rather have them looser, not tight. Once I have the belt on, they fit perfectly. And the price is great!
