love em but i popped a button

These pants are great, one flaw. fit is slimish, material is stretchy. the hoop and loop belt is good at tightening things up. pockets are ok, back ones hold a wallet. These are performance shorts but look good in town. Great for hiking/biking/climbing/gym.

The center button is a snap, i fell off the bike once and blew it open, ended up down and almost gave a little more show than i bargained for. However this only happened one time, but i've only had them a couple months.

Love em

My husband bought these shorts and he says: I love these shorts, they look good, great for hiking and have worn out when I bike to dinner or the bar. The stretch makes these so comfortable. The built in belt works great, who wants to wear a belt while hiking? No one. I imagine these would work well for mtn biking too just havent used them for that yet. Wore them to the airport and didnt have to deal with taking a belt off for security. Only thing is sometimes the front pockets will flair out when in certain positions, but does not bother me that much. Waist size is 31" bought a medium and it fits great.
