    I typically wear a 34 or 36 waist and for these shorts I went with a 36 and they fit great. If you're sort of inbetween then go with the 36.
    The shorts are great, fast-drying, I used them at the beach one day swam in them in they dried very quickly. They are a bit on the short side, but i like that. I'll be buying another pair in a different color. Great buy!

    Very nice shorts however I would order one size larger. My regular size was a little to tight.

    I ordered the 34 waist. Although they were nice quality and styling for my 5'10", 34" waist,32" inseam, 175# husband they were just too short and a bit tight.
    I think the length is too short for a lot of men.

    These are nice shorts. I just wore them on a trip to Florida, had no issues with the heat while wearing these. My only issue is the size, you need to go a size up or they will be tight. Otherwise, they are a great pair of shorts.

    A woman's point of view! My husband it not much of a hiker or sportsman but does play golf. However, we live in Florida where it is hot and we travel. A great thing about these shorts that is not mentioned above is how they give a nice slimming look and flow nicely. These shorts also look stylish if you want to dress them up a bit with a nice shirt and loafers. They come out of the dryer perfect and are not all wrinkly when taken out of a drawer. If they have been crammed in luggage and have a few creases all you have to do is wipe a damp cloth over them after you put them on. They do not wear out! I'm buying more because I can not pass up the deal. My husband is in between a 36 and 38, we buy the 38 but like I said they flow nice.

    Super comfortable shorts. I LOVE the material - soft, flexible and light.

    For what it's worth, I'm a very lean 31" waist with fairly muscular legs. I purchased 2 sets of these shorts in size 32. They fit perfectly but I would not want them to be any smaller as they would be too tight waist and leg wise (I better not gain any weight!)
