Very Good Short. Weird Belt.

This short is a simple and nice technical piece that breathes very well for hiking and exertion, dries quickly, and allows a good range of motion. The material is moderately stretchy and comfortable. The two simple, zippered side pockets work smoothly and are mesh lined I haven't popped the front snap moving around, but expect to some day with the snap not secured under the belt. I liked the fit, feel and stretch of the short and decided to keep them and have been enjoying them even with the weird belt. The offset, I guess, allows a front hook waist harness or lower pack belt buckle to not be doubled but honestly this has never really been a problem in the past for me with a conventional front hook belt.
