It has summer covered.
Tacos, disc games, and porch drinking sessions are all within the purview of Marmot's Annadel 9in Men's Short. It can also knock out the occasional day at the office and hold its own when you hit the trail for an afternoon hike.

- Q & A
A little disappointed
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: 30
I ordered these online thinking they would fit roughly the same as the other pairs of Marmot shorts and pants I own. News flash: they don't. When they arrived I excitedly pulled them out of the packaging and tried them on. Much to my dismay, they were not a size 30 like I had ordered. I thought that maybe I had just gotten a little wider; not the case. Compared to other pairs of Marmot shorts I own, these definitely feel like a size, maybe two sizes too small in the waist. And forget the 9 inch inseam. These are maybe 8 inches down the thigh. They are just a little too tight around the waist to be comfortable and fit very slim in the thigh and seat. I wore them a couple of times around the house and to do some light work in the yard, hoping maybe they would stretch out a little. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like it will happen, so I think I will pass them on to a family member. Definitely size up if you decide to get these.
The only reason I did not give these things a horrible review is that other than the fit, these things are pretty nice. They seem like they would be comfortable and very durable, but it really is hard to tell considering the fit and the fact that I've only wore them a couple of times.
Not really what I was expecting from Marmot. I like them as a company and it seems like the quality that I've known from them previously, but not the fit. Hopefully they make some changes, because these could be great shorts.
