Give your waders a break.
As much as you love your waders, it's nice to let your legs enjoy the refreshing feel of a mountain stream in a pair of Simms Men's Guide Shorts. Made with a two-way stretch fabric with COR3 technology, not only are the Guide Shorts easy to maneuver in when you're casting from the bow of drift boat, but they resist odor-causing microbial growth and provide protection from the sun. A gusseted crotch makes entering into a power stance while you make a double-haul cast to the far bank easier, and it makes stepping in and out of an unstable boat simple. A mess of pockets holds just about anything you'd want a pair of shorts to hold..

Legs are small in large sizes. Other Simms shorts in the size 40 are fine. These are skin tight thru the thighs. Seem to be good quality.
Comfy shorts. For a variety of uses. Hiking, fishing. Or just lounging around. Quick dry material so you don't have sit around in wet shorts all day. I just bought these and have not put them through the ringer yet. But I'm sure they will be my go to shorts for whatever Adenture I find.

Sizing seemed spot on to me. I have used them for Hiking, SUP, and general casual lounging. Pockets are mesh lined and the fabric seems to repel water. Great for Water crossings, get a little wet and dry very quickly. Fit was to just above my knee, I would have liked another inch on the length, but overall 5 stars.
