    Very nice look, fit and functionality. the material is high quality with very nice texture. 34" waist was true to size with enough room for minor shrinkage in washing.

    these shorts are hefty, yet flexible. They are easy to wear and provide some ventilation.

    dissapointed - 9/29/2014

    I liked the fit, the style, and what I thought would be durability. Unfortunately, I sent back the first pair the very day I purchased the shorts due to a tear at the crotch seem. I ordered a replacement, and that too had the same issue and I ended up returning the second pair.

    Good quality. - 6/27/2014

    I have three pairs of Trailhead Shorts. Wear well and look good. Only one suggestion, make the belt loops a bit larger. Can't use a wide belt with this item.

    needs reinforced stitching - 6/21/2014
    By: from Birmingham, AL

    Bought a pair, wore them for a day of clay shooting. After washing, noticed the stitching below the fly was pulling apart. I really like everything about these shorts except the lack of reinforcement in the key stress areas. I'm having a seamstress add some stitching and possibly a rivet to the 2nd pair. Orvis replaced the 1st pair, no questions.
