I'm 6'5" and 210lb with a 36in waist - I just needed to take the belt strap in 1" total so not much bunched up fabric on the waist(you can work that slack around the side/back a bit so there is no bunched fabric). Nice secure buckle on the belt. Good length (mid-kneecap) but the fabric doesn't seem like it will be very durable on the trail/rocks. I have larger thighs and high stepping in these shorts doesn't tighten up the crotch like other shorts due to the stretchy material/gusseted crotch, which is nice. Both cargo pockets are zip only which I don't dig on - velcro is nice for quick access to a camera, gear, or whatever. As some have mentioned in the reviews, these may work better for going to the cafe, golfing or looking stylish on a yacht vs being functional on the trail. * shrug * Think I'll return them and get another pair of Kuhl Z Cargo shorts.
