    Has Flaws

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 36
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 250lbs

    Like someone else said the bottoms are way too baggy and the side pocket, is held on by GLUE. I had to spend an extra 15.00 and have it sewn reinforced. 3 stars because I love OP

    Love em!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 32
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    I typically wear a 33 or 34. Based on the reviews I ordered a 32 and it's a custom fit. They feel great on and at 6'1" 175 they suit my physique. I can do Yoga in these or wear em out. When I put these on I'm the hottest dude in the pack. I'm afraid I'm going to wear them out because I can't seem to take them off.

    Too baggy at the ends

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    Overall, the are good quality. But i feel like im wearing a kilt or a dress, they're 12" leg openings. Even with my big quads, too much imo!

    Pewter Color

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    I purchased these in two more colors and I'm very happy with the product. Please see my previous reviews for full details - I'll keep buying these as long as they make them!

    Perfect all-purpose active shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 32
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    I'm a size 34 waist, and that's the size I bought for my first pair of these. The waist is definitely loose, although there really isn't any risk that they could fall down, as the stretchy material is somewhat snug around the hips. However, it does give that sensation of "wearing nothing" as another reviewer mentioned, so I use a belt with that pair. When I bought another pair in size 32, however, I fell in love. This size is snug, but the waist is somewhat stretchy so there is no discomfort. They are fitted, stylish, minimalist, super light, stretchy, wicking. There is no uncomfortable constriction, and they allow for full range of movement. To compare to some other "technical" shorts I've worn: I have a pair of Mountain Hardwear Canyon shorts that I also really like, but they have very little stretch in the fabric and some of the pocket stitching has started to unravel. The Prana Stretch Zion shorts have a seemingly more substantial, but somewhat less stretchy fabric. The fit is also different, with a snugger fit around the waist and looser fit around the hips and legs. Both those shorts fit true to size compared to the loose waist of these Ferrosis. All that said, the Ferrosi shorts are my current favorite.

    I’ll be buying more...

    Bought a second pair after one weekend wearing these shorts. I’ve now camped, biked, swam and jet-setted in these shorts and they’re great in all instances. Super comfy, stretchy and quick drying, but still sleek enough to wear on a plane or to the local brewery without feeling like a goon.

    Feels like you're wearing nothing

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    These shorts are incredibly soft, durable, light weight and they look great. The pockets are made of mesh which helps make them even more breathable. Highly recommended.

    Super comfy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34
    • Height: 6'2"

    These have very quickly become my favorite shorts. They are lightweight, stretchy, and incredibly comfortable, but they still feel sturdy. I've been wearing them for a week straight and love them.
