I have many pairs of these cargo shorts and wear them all the time, they are very light . My older pairs seem slightly longer which I like a little better.

This pair that I ordered on line is not up to par to the pair that I purchased in store. I love the shorts, but the waist band is stretched out, doesn't have any "play" to it. The other doesnt have alot, but some, enough to keep them around your waist.
The color is beautiful, delivery was prompt, just noticed the waist was drooping so held them up to the store purchased pair and it isnt my imagination. I needed them so have worn them for kayaking and vaca, but just not the same.
Activities: Kayaking, Vacation

I bought these shorts for running as I prefer a sturdier fabric than the typical running shorts and also prefer shorts with pockets to store keys and gel pacs.

I love these shorts and own many pairs of them. I work outdoors in the heat and humidity and the comfort of these shorts is beyond compare. I use the cargo pockets for my cell phone and other devices as well as treats for my horse (I am a horseback riding instructor). Away from the barn these shorts are always cool and comfortable and look nice and neat. Thank you for making such a great product!
I would recommend this product.

I pretty much wear these all summer long. I think I have just about every color. They are so comfortable they do not cling to you when it's hot ,they dry fast if they get wet. The material is not hot on your skin when it's hot & humid outside. They wash up really nice. Best shorts ever highly reccommend!
I would recommend this product.

The fit is exactly what I needed. Loose in the thighs so I don't feel constricted. They dry so quickly too; less than 2 hours outside hanging and they are ready to wear again!
