Very light and comfortable. I've worn them partially submerged in the river while fly-fishing in Montana and walking down the street in San Francisco. Works great for both. They dry quickly, keep their shape, and are light without feeling like nylon. Very happy with them.

The back pockets are surprisingly big and wide and secured by a small velcro patch. And deliciously inviting to pickpockets. And tend to spill whatever contents you have in them with the bend of a knee.

Got the shorts in one color and loved them, ordered in another color and the waist is 2" smaller than the first... returning for another the same size hopefully as the first!

Just purchased my 2nd pair of these shorts. First pair are several years old and have held up great. My only gripe with the new pair is that the "belt" is considerably shorter than the old one. It barely clears the buckle while the belt on the older pair reaches through the belt loop.

Listed as large up to 37 waist I am 38 but took a chance -- not a chance -- the shorts were 2 inches from being able to button. Closer to a 35 or 36, not a 37. Will try the next size up.

It is hard to find light weight shorts with cargo pockets. We travel in warm climates and these shorts are perfect. I can carry everything I need for the day without using a fanny pack.

My husband loves these shorts! He tends to wear his hiking clothes for everyday wear, and these look tidy, are lightweight and comfortable, and wash and dry easily. He says he would like the belt to be a little wider.
