"Don't think, pull the trigger, worth every penny"
These shorts are nothing short of amazing. I've had a lot of OR stuff and these live up to the quality/reputation. They are amazingly light, breathable, and tough. I have worn them to the beach, in the mountains, on the trail, etc. and they have never let me down. The zippered pockets are great and ensure you don't lose a thing. I love the longer length and the fact that these are somewhat water resistant, and if you do get them wet they dry quick. If you are debating between shorts and have arrived at this page the search has ended. Get them, you won't regret it.
