Really nice shorts!
May 20, 2012

TNF Paramount Utility shorts are extremely comfortable and utilitarian. The nylon is a nice weight that will stand up to wear and tear. I really like the plethora of pockets, especially the extra zip front pocket for small items that might otherwise fall out when sitting down. One of my favorite features are the deep nylon-reinforced front mesh pockets that protect the mesh from heavier objects like keys or a pocket knife. I also like the fact that the shorts aren't extremely long, coming down to the tops of my knee caps. I ordered a 36 waist and they fit beautifully, though I must say they are a bit smaller than other 36-inch waist pants/shorts that I own from TNF and Arc'teryx specifically (I am a true 35). All in all, a great pair of shorts.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value
