These shorts are fabulous. Sweet lines and so unburdened by excessive features they're super light too. I bought them for a trip to Kauai and planned to take them hiking to alpine lakes, but now I find I take them anywhere there might be water. They hang out in my gym bag, carry on, and even just a day pack for sprinkler play with my daughter in the fountains downtown.
This is by far my favorite pair of board shorts I have ever owned. They have a nice simple look to them. I love the lightweight and comfortable feel. The tie-up part seems different, I guess because they used less material so they ride a little lower but not enough to be a problem to me. The coolest part IMHO is how they pack up so small into the pocket making it amazing for travel and hiking.
Any stretch to these?
Is this the closest I'll get to the Houdini?
not much stretch here. Check the Stretch Planing from Patagonia though. Same fabric as the Houdini short, but not the super tech seams. Super sweet for sure.
