I bought these for my boyfriend for his birthday this summer, and he wore them constantly. I would practically have to sneak them in the wash for him. They have great movement so he was able to climb in them comfortably. But, they look very nice so he also could dress them up a bit and wear them out and they don't have to remain just climbing shorts. The material is awesome; it hasn't ripped or frayed or even been scratched, and it is super soft. The length of them is great, not too short and not too long. And the waist fits true to size. All around I would say these are the perfect shorts.
