Low rise and front appearance odd.

Comparison:
Bought 2 of these. Comparing to a Columbia fishing version that I own for performance.
Air flow:
These Dakota Grizzly do not breathe as well. If you try blow air through them, it does not pass. I get better air flow through a pair of jeans.
Fit and appearance:
SHORT low rise on hips.
Waist is tight for L. Feels like a 36. Thank goodness for the elastic back or it would be a return.
Odd appearance:
First thing my wife commented on when she saw them.
If you pull them up like normal shorts, it looks like you stuffed socks inside your pants. So its an odd appearance caused by the cut of the style.
Mechanical:
Zipper jams taking off the legs - hopefully gets easier over time.
