I purchased these river shorts for floating and camping. They have been perfect. They are light, dry fast and comfortable to wear in the boat, hiking and in camp. I wear them as swim shorts at the pool too. The front pockets are bit small, but functional and the size probably helps with the fit. I use the zipper pockets, particularly to keep from losing stuff in the water. They were pretty much the only bottoms I wore on a 3 night - 2 day river float, including driving and a lunch and dinner on the road. It often seems difficult to determine whether shorts are really going to work both in and out of the water from the product description, but these have been great.

I picked these bad boys up at the beginning of summer and have used them hiking, backpacking, biking, and even swimming once. I think that they have a very thoughtful design with a waist that is tighter than the hips so they stay in place but allows you to move without binding up. There is a nice little stretch panel right below the waist in the back and one down the side of each leg to aid in mobility and fit. I like that the seat and thighs are a very durable material. The shorts have 2 front pockets I never use because they are small and my phone and car keys are huge I also never use the velcro pocket on the back. The zip pocket on each side is great and the only pockets I use. They dry quickly and stay clean which is big for me.
Literally my only complaint is there is no belt loops. I purchased a 34 I think they fit like a 33s. When I bought them I was 205 at mid summer I was 189 and really wanting some belt loops.

I love that these stretch and are super light weight. I use them for hiking and as swim trunks. Front pockets are shallow but my stuff doesn't fall out, so ...so far so good. The side zip pocket would be better as a cell pocket like on the pants but I just leave it open. Wish they had belt loops for a nylon web belt, but would recommend. Pricey short, but I decided to treat myself. They are really sharp looking.
Are these actually swim trunks or just board shorts?
Hi! So you can swim or lounge in the river with these. They are designed for either and water sports. Basically a reinvented swim trunk .
Does the waistband have any elasticity? I...
Does the waistband have any elasticity? I have tried the Mutiny Board Shorts and there is no stretch at all.
Hey Jonathan, these will have the forgiving spandex panels on the hips and side but the waist will be a more fixed option without elastane.
Hope that helps!
