My favorite shorts
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 30
I love these shorts! I just purchased my second pair after being so impressed with the first. I use these for everything from hiking to indoor rock climbing to cutting grass to the occasional swim when I don't have a pair of official swim trunks handy. These fit great, dry quickly, are very durable and have plenty of stretch for any activity. I love the zippered back pocket and thigh pocket to secure valuables when needed. The only complaint is that I wish the front hand pockets were a little deeper. Also, someone with larger thighs may have issues since these are pretty narrow, I have chicken legs so not much of an issue for me.

Waist fits true to size but the legs are way too tight. Step high and they stay clamped around your leg, not naturally falling back into place. I have the same pants and they fit slim but are very comfortable. You'd need pencil thighs to make these work.
