    'Good' On-Sale Shorts.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 197lbs

    The fabric is 'interesting' and a nice alternative to my (preferred) nylon active shorts; comfortable, and will likely wear/age well. I love the length, but I'm a Hoosier and admire Larry Bird! The back-pocket(s) snaps are small, and a little tricky to snap shut. The 'belt' is kinda disappointing. Too short to (almost, but I'm losing weight) reach the belt stay/loop, and...the belt will loosen fairly easily, requiring a cinch-down. 3 Stars.

    Great performance shorts.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have an older pair of the Cotton Gi Pants that are 100% cotton, and this newer pair of the Gi Shorts, that have the polyester twill added in. The feel is certainly different, but if you're looking for the Performance aspect, these shorts do the job and then some. They're lightly stretchy and have a gusseted crotch that's comfortable on the trail and off. If you're doing anything active—climbing, hiking, etc.—the added polyester is great to keep you cool and again, give you stretch. The integrated belt is just so damn comfortable, stretches comfortably at the waist but has a secure fit and is super easy to use. Would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a good hiking short or just to improve your every day life with enhanced comfort. I've read a lot of negative reviews about the changes. I never had an old pair of the shorts, but love these ones a lot.

    Don't fix whats not broken

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs small

    They are nothing like the previous models and shouldn't even be called Gi shorts. The length is very short and they are made of cheap cotton, you look like Magic Johnson and Larry Bird in them
