Excellent shorts

5 5
These shorts are outstanding. Almost a board short exterior, but they totally feel like shorts and not a swimming suit. Nice and light. Excellent pockets. My cell phone hasn't yet fallen out of the right side snug pocket, even when sitting down--excellent design. I'm 6'5", 205. Got the 36" waist. Typically a 36" waist sits a little big on me, but these are perfect. If you're an in-betweener (~35" waist), get the 36. Love the no-shipping cost; thanks Overland. Can't wait to take these to SE Asia trip in October.

Renegade Shorts

Bought these shorts for my husband because he likes the light material for rafting and swimming. He's a hard to find size and they had it, so I got him a pair for his birthday. He liked them because they fit well.
