    pocket problem - 7/18/2013
    By: from boulder colorado neuropsychologist

    The shorts are nicely styled, typical ex-officio quality, but front patch pockets are a disaster. When you sit down, unless, for some reason, your thighs are angled forwards downwards towards the floor, things in your pockets naturally fall out, since that is the "downhill" direction. OK, there's a cargo pocket with a flap, It has the same problem, unless the flap happens to stop them. Why not give us pockets we can actually put things in? It's guaranteed you are going to lose things you don't notice have fallen out, if you can find them at all in the recesses of your couch or chair cushions.

    Lightweight, more pockets than anyone could use and quick-dry -- great for wading streams in the summertime

    Love the hidden pockets. Very good fit, which means very comfortable Summertime wear.

    Good but could be great - 4/30/2013

    I have worn a version of these shorts on a near daily basis for over ten years. About four years ago, ExOfficio stopped making them with inner liners. If they used the current design improvements with the inner liner the product would be outstanding.

    Purchased these for warm weather fly fishing. Very comfortable warm weather shorts. I especially like the belt system, the extra give when bending or sitting in my pontoon reduces the pinch you get across your gut when the belt is properly tightened.

    Perfect! - 7/20/2012
    By: from New Orleans

    We bought a pair of these shorts for my husband on a trip to Orvis for something else and he wears them all the time. They are lightweight but don't look like it. They wash well and always look sharp. I just got them in another color because he wears them so much. Great purchase!
