These shorts quickly became my favorite travel shorts. The material feels awesome, although after wearing them for a few days straight, they do start to feel a little oily. And you should definitely order a size small. I typically wear a 32 in waist and I ordered a 30 (I have experience with exofficio...) and it's a tad snug which is perfect. I recently wore them on a week long trip around Mexico and they stole the show. The gusseted crotch is awesome and never binds, and all the pockets are SUPER handy. I never had to worry about stains, tearing, or pickpockets, which was great.
