My favorite river shorts

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

I have owned numerous pairs of these over the years as a river guide. They have held up well and are very versatile. Add a dress shirt and you are ready to go to a wedding or any social outing worth going to.


Great Pair of shorts! Buy them!

Whether your playing pick up basketball or going to the lake. These shorts are comfy and dry fast. They last forever to. I wore them almost everyday at some point over the summer. I highly recommend these shorts for everyone!

    tough stuff

    • Gender:Male
    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Threw these on right out of the box and wore them for a week straight in the Escalante. Had to stem through all sort so tight sections and they didn't tear at all. The belt loosens a little at times but it's just a quick cinch to tighten again. A little too loose fitting maybe but I liked 'em fine!

    tough stuff

    I couldn't tell from the online photos--do these shorts have a fly opening in front?

    thanks much.
