They're awesome!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I work as a general contractor / handyman, so I'm always working outdoors for extended periods on a daily basis. I live in Texas, where the highs have consistently been in excess of 100 degrees, every day, for months. Recently I started experiencing bad heat rashes due to always wearing cotton undergarments & jeans. I couldn't deal with it anymore, so I began looking for a diffferent type of underwear & shorts that would be durable enough to withstand the abuse that my clothing takes being in construction, while still being light, breathable, & wick the moisture away. Ever since switching to these shorts, plus the Echo men's boxer briefs, I haven't had a single rash. I was concerned that the "canvas" material would be too thick and restrict breathing, but that isn't the case at all. They are very durable, yet light weight and very breathable. I also used to suffer from swamp ........ you know. Now, I'm literally shocked at how dry everything stays. These shorts, and ESPECIALLY the boxer briefs, dry out lightning fast. Plus, The gray/orange shorts look awesome, and I've received many compliments about how they look/fit on me (I'm a skinny, 6' tall & 140lb guy. I ordered the small size). Thank you Outdoor Research! Awesome product that has made my every day activities/work way more comfortable, AND took care of a medical/skin problem that was getting to the point of me needing to go to the doctor.... Just wish they had more colors available. Thanks!!!!

Amazing Confortable fit.

I'm so fond of the fit of these shorts that I've added three pairs to my collection. They are my go-to choice for casual outings as well as hiking adventures. These shorts provide a perfect fit around the waist and are crafted with good durable materials.
