I love these shorts, but unfortunately the sizes are inconsistent. I ordered 4 pairs of size 32 and only one pair fits me. Three of the size 32 fit like size 30. Either that or the size 32 fits like 34.
I'd order more if I knew they sizes were consistent.
I do not recommend this product.

I own a business where I lead kayak trips and then also rent paddles board, kayaks, and bikes. I wanted a pair of good looking shorts that I could wear around the shop but then also deliver rentals in. It is still winter here in Michigan so I have not tried them in the water yet but I am really excited to test the sun protection on some of my long day paddles. The fit is awesome, just the right amount of coverage and length. The material felt nice and light. Which i like because it gets hot kayaking and paddle boarding. Already considering getting a another pair.
I would recommend this product.
