    Love 'em.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    The shorts are nearly perfect. I went for a 10 K run in the heat yesterday, and they worked perfectly. They fit great and are well made. The waist band is soft and doesn't pinch. The fabric is the right weight: light enough for running in hot weather, but thick enough to feel durable. The range of motion is complete, and I'll be doing a Murph in them tommorrow. The length hits just above the knee on me, and I would call the fit tailored but not restrictive. The pockets, faux fly, and snazy red color make me feel like I can go straight from a trail run to a crab boil. I've already bought another pair.

    Great shorts

    These shorts are super stretchy and comfortable. I bought specifically for running, going to the gym, hiking etc... The one zipper pocket is nice for either keys or a phone. I like the tie waist, super comfy. Probably wouldnt wear them outside of working out as they do not have a wallet pocket or belt loops. Size seems true to fit, I have a 32" waist and the medium fits well.

    I got these for my friend and he says they are very comfortable, breathable and stretchy. Only downside is there are no pockets in the back for a passport or wallet. In humid temperatures they do a good job of not sticking to the skin and are great for ocean fly fishing. Quick dry! The drawstring is also a loop, which not sure how to tie it.

    I've had these shorts for a few days, and I've been really impressed with the comfort and versatility of the short. The 4-way stretch makes them both really functional, and really comfortable. These will be my go to travel short this summer because they have enough style you walk around town, but they have enough stretch & breath ability for a hike or a run. The only thing is that they run a little big. I got the Medium, but could probably go with a small. So, you might want to size down.
