Bad fit, Useless pockets

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

The positives: very lightweight and the material is really stretchy. Would probably work really well for water sports and rock climbing.

The negatives: these just didn't fit me at all. I'm a 32/33 waist and the large was too loose and medium was too tight. They're also longer than pretty much all other shorts. The pockets are absolutely useless. They're way too shallow to be any good and are placed right in the front, not the side so you would have your belongings rubbing against your front upper thigh all day on hikes. Also, the leg openings are really wide. Someone else mentioned they could fit both legs in them. I tried it and I could too.

A few minor changes and these shorts would be awesome, but I'll be returning them.
