"If you're looking for great hiking/backpacking shorts, look no further."
These are fantastic. Lightweight, breathable, and don't have obnoxious pockets, like so many other cargo shorts. I wore them for ten days in the back country, and used them for just about everything you can do. They made a fine bathing suit, normal shorts, and are even flexible enough to climb in. To be honest, the back facing pockets are a little hard to get your hands into, but then again i have huge hands. All in all, highly recommended.
