    These were a gift for my husband. The fit is perfect. They look quite nice and don't seem to wrinkle. They are light weight yet appear to be substantial. It has been very hot and humid lately and he wore them two days in a row and they continued to appear fresh.

    I like these shorts fora couple of reasons. First, they cover the knee so I don't feel they ride up when I sit down. And secondly they have some stretch making them feel comfortable walking or sitting. They do seem to run a little large. I normally were a size 34 but had to scale down to a 32 (160 lbs, 6'). Other than that it's all good.

    Great shorts, true to size, like the bit of stretch, the fit and the overall look. Bought them originally to wear rafting and kayaking but they'll be great for everyday casual wear. Very satisfied with this purchase.

    these fit me perfectly. I got them in the longer size, which is what I like, and they fit great. Very nice to have the different lengths to choose from. Fabric is great an seem durable.

    Light weight, cool, quick drying. Excellent for activities in hot weather. I wear a 31-32 and the 32 fits me without a belt however if you carry items in the pockets a belt is probably desired.

  • “What's the inseam on these?

    Asked by CB from Boston on 5/28/2015 3:42:06 AM
    • The length is about 14". I normally chose an 11" or 12" length so the short would hit at the knee. This short falls below my knee.
