Awesome features, horrible fit

    Fresh out of the box these shorts tick all the boxes; tough cordura fabric, adjustable waist, harness accessible thigh pocket, etc. The critical failure is in the fit. They are a little loose on me but the front pockets gape open like you would expect from pants/shorts two sizes too small and when tying the internal drawcord the shorts bunch all the fabric in front in seriously the most unflattering way possible. Save your money and buy the Ferrosi shorts, they may not be as durable but they were designed to fit humans.
