i usually shy away from buying "expensive" shorts, but these were worth it. Material is lightweight and durable both internally and externally. The material just makes you want to rub your leg with your hand all day. The fit is amazing.Pockets are extra roomy. Only downside is no back pocket to speak of.Has an extra front pocket on left leg that could carry an i phone or wallet to make up for the dearth of back pocket.Great buy. I plan on getting another pair.
