These shorts are lightweight and comfortable. They dry fast and can be used as swim trunks. The only downside in my mind is the belt thing, which doesn't work too great. I like the low amount of pockets unlike a lot of cargo type shorts.
"Flattering Fit, Super lightwt, quick drying"
From the female perspective: I LOVE how these look on my lover! (He likes that they are super lightweight and comfortable, don't restrict movement cycling or hiking - and that they dry fast. He likes the large back zippered mesh pocket and two roomy front pockets.) I like that the pockets don't really show so don't take away from the fit. I love how he looks wearing these shorts! I'm at Moosejaw now buying him a few more pairs . . .
