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!

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

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!

  • 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!
