Just what I was looking for! These hardy and versatile shorts definitely earn those five star ratings. Not only are they flattering, just the right length and shape for people with muscular legs and ample hips, but they have pockets galore. Two deep-without-being-bulgy front pockets are fronted by smaller pockets on either side; one with a hook and loop closure and one with a zipper so those vital keys don't get away from you on the river. Nicely deep hook and loop closure pockets are also on the back without creating a weirdly blocky look. And the waist will fit you, whether you have straight sides or are curvy, since there are three positions to cinch up the waist on either side. It may be a little more trouble to do a two-button front closure, but it sure beats annoying drawstrings or front buttons that cause the front of your waistband to stick out under your T-shirt. Kayaking here I come!

Let's get the one negative out of the way first: I'm a size 12 and found these to be just a tad snug. Not a problem because I m going to reorder in a larger size because these shorts rock. They're lightweight, they look super durable, and I love the features! I'm going to be doing some international travel and need secure and light weight shorts. Both back pockets have a Velcro closure that cannot be opened without you knowing about it. Think kids shoes. It's like super Velcro; not only will you feel it if it gets opened but you ll hear it. The back pockets are deep. They're on a slant so 9 at the lowest point and 11 at the highest (high to spine to low leg). The front has two pockets on each side for a total of four front pockets. The upper right and left hand side have a traditional pocket , i.e. slip hand in. These are deep and go the entire length, approximately 9 from lowest point, to the bottom of the hem and are 7 wide. The secondary right hand side lower pocket is another super Velcro closure and the lower left is a zipper with an overflap. No accidental unzipping here. I love that these shorts have double rear button tab adjustability. On either side there is a button on the back of the waistband to tighten the waist size. Love it! Please note that the description refers to hook and loop and what they mean is Velcro. Must have been a copyright issue.

These are fantastic shorts. The adjustability of the waist is so nice as it allows for a good fit for a smaller waist with fuller hips. The material dries quickly. The pockets are numerous with some deep pockets and a zipper pocket so you can have a lot secure in these shorts but they still have a nice look to them (not bulky.) The taupe is my favorite, but I also have the khaki.

I'd also recommend: Kuhl, Prana, Exofficio

I was surprised at how light weight these shorts are when I wore them for the first time. I wanted shorts that were slimming (no bulky waist band or pockets that stick out). These fit the bill. The soapstone is a nice color (not bright white or too brown) and will go with anything.

Been searching for a comfy sand-colored short with a wider leg opening for some time (although tapered up to the hip - very flattering). These are perfect. However, be sure to size up. I went up one size and found them still too tight, exchanging for another pair, 2 sizes above my size 10! These have no give on them, else I would have stuck with the size 12. Yikes.
