Ken Z.wrote a review of The North Face Better Than Naked Cool Short - Men's on April 1, 2012
I'd heard people just RAVE about their BTN shorts, so finally I dropped down the cash to get a pair. Yes, they are probably one of the best if not the best pair of shorts, but at almost double the price of other great shorts when found on sale (always search the sales; you get usually 50% off on stuff like that), I don't think I'll buy another pair.
The pockets are done very well, which if you like to carry lots of stuff in well places, well constructed pockets on the sides and rear, these are good. Of course, that also comes with a (very small) weight penalty, so if 5Ks are your thing, or minimalist marathons, these are not your race shorts. Still, for a 2 hour jaunt through the woods it allows you to carry some food along with your water bottle.
