These shorts are really great all-around: they look stylish but retain a little bit of a longer length (not so long that they look grandmotherly) - perfect for travel, hiking, and even wearing day-to-day.
One issue is that they are not 100% comfortable when sitting down for extended periods of time. I avoided wearing these when I had hours-long travel on bus or plane as they can ride up into your crotch and you'll find yourself pulling them down repeatedly, for comfort.
Also, great for travel - I took these on a two-month long trip around Asia and while they got some wrinkles over day to day wear, they looked good as new after rolling them up in the pack.
Love the subtle split in the legs and the pockets having a button for security.
The fabric is like a thicker cotton blend - not a quick-dry but comfortable to wear.
