    Not for me

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    Gave these a shot, but the fit wasn't what I was looking for. I have a 30" waist, and the smalls fit well there, but the legs seemed billowy. I was hoping for a straighter cut I suppose.

    Good value

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    I bought these shorts because I wanted something cheap and somewhat durable to use around the house or while enjoying the outdoors. So far, they do the job. However, the fit is a bit off and not quite what I would like it to be.

    Great shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Med-6
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    Bought these as a gift; my husband loves them and wants more colors. They are a great price; they are comfortable, attractive and wick away the water. He even wears them when not in the kayak. I have already recommended them to friends.

    great feedback

    • Fit: True to size

    I have sold quite a few of these shorts this season and I have heard nothing but good things about them. I have had customers callings in to order more pairs. They say they run true to size and are very comfortable.

    Right on the money

      These are fantastic shorts at a fantastic price. The nylon material loses nothing in durability to its incredible light weight and quick drying. Great shorts for the water and for whatever other activities you may be looking forward to.

      Pura Vida

        Bought these for a two week trip to Costa Rica, and they exceeded my expectations. I wore them most of the time when I was at sea level. They are the fastest-drying clothes I've owned, once completely drying in two hours with the help of a small fan. The zippered back pocket came in very handy when I wanted to get wet but not leave valuables on the beach. The shorts stayed on while I was body surfing in ten foot waves or standing or swimming under a heavy waterfall. They dealt easily with both hot and cold water swimming and class V rapids. They also stood up to rappeling down a 75-foot waterfall, where the harness put stress on the shorts. They looked good enough not to bother the fish when I was snorkeling, though no one mistook me for a surfer dude.

        The only drawback: the front pockets turn inside out in strong currents and waves.

        Unanswered Question

        do the whidbey ii shorts have pockets? i have similar or the same shorts that have both side pockets, netting, and a right back pocket with zipper?
