Best Pair of Shorts Ever
April 16, 2013

These are the best shorts I have ever had. I live in the dessert, and I need to wear shorts nine months out of the year due to the heat. These are the coolest (in temperature) shorts I have ever had. They are also very comfortable to wear in general. I do think the design is very well done. The zippered pocket on the right leg is perfect to hold my cell phone and car key fob securely. I am on my third pair now, but not because they have ever worn out. I still have and wear all three pairs. I just expanded into different colors. They are easy to care for--just wash, dry and wear. They do not wrinkle either.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use, comfort, Cons: Cost

Love the fabric!
December 31, 2011

These shorts feel amazing on my skin. I love the stretch fabric and the look so much, I ended up purchasing another in a different color. They are light, comfortable and give free motion. I had to return them for a larger size since they run small. That was my only complaint.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, wonderful fabric, Cons: runs small

These shorts look wonderful, without being too flashy.

Great shorts
April 12, 2010

Okay, I've never actually reviewed an item before, but these are worth it. I recently did an adventure race wearing these shorts and they held up great. My legs were shredded from the thorns, etc. but these shorts didnt even snag. Very breathable and easy to move around in. Alittle pricey, but if you want great shorts for running, hiking, biking, these are the ones.
