Worth Every Penny

Lightweight and nonrestrictive lower garment. Exceptionally comfortable during all moderate/high endurance activities. Same great quality you expect from OR. At 5'7/165lbs and men's 30 waist, medium is the way to go.

Feel like they are on backwards

Bought these for hiking, sports, gym, etc. very uncomfortable. Sizing seems to be off. They feel like the are on backwards! I would return them except I've had them for two months trying to "like" them....... I do not recommend them for anything activity.

Great Shorts

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Comfortable waistband. Lightweight and dries quickly. I hang dry my Zendo shorts now after I shrunk the waistband on a pair.

Holy shorts

Bought these shorts for a 22 day trek through Europe. These shorts are amazing; super light, easy to wash on the road, they dry crazy fast, and they are just so comfortable. I'm 6' 1" about 175 and the medium fits me perfectly.

The best!

These shorts are the most comfortable. The waist band is great, and the length is perfect. I got one pair, wore them for a week, then had to order another pair!

Elastic band REALLY soft

I used it during a 17 day climbing trip to the west desert. They gave me freedom of movement for climbing and the fabric excels against the rock. The elastic band is really soft which can be a good or a bad thing... good for comfort and bad if you skinny!

Used to be better..

I bought two pairs of these a couple years ago and I still wear them both frequently. The waistband was and stays strong, no problem loading up the pockets. I bought a third pair recently and they must have changed the waistband design because it feels like they will fall down if I put my phone in my pocket. I compared the waistband and they old shorts waistband elastic is twice as thick. I wish they hadn't changed it. 6'1, 180 lb, ordered a M Still a huge OR fan though. Normally they hit it out of the park.

Better than Mojo

The elastic isn't going to wear out. The pockets are better, and the fit isn't too baggy. Get em while they're hot. Or before?
