Durable Water Repellant
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts, great service! I bought these shorts and received them faster than promised. Every time I have shopped with Moosejaw, the experience and service have been great! The shorts are extremely comfortable and fit well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great three seasons shorts! I purchased these shorts last month and they were the best purchase I made in a long time! They are now in my Spring, Summer and Fall wardrobe rotation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts I bought these for my husband who loves them. They look great (in the city or country), they dry fast and the fabric is durable and stretchy. The gray is a great color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Fit!! I now have three pairs of these shorts so you know I like them. A bit of length which is good for sun protection. Comfortable stretchy fit. Nice assortment of pockets strategically placed for usage and good looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy, nice looking, super versatile I am 6'2" tall 170 lbs and about 31 waist. These fit almost perfect in the 32" waist. the material is amazing...my previous pair a few years old had a better material in my opinion as it felt thicker, yet was never hot. You can use them as shorts, swim trunks, etc. The way the pockets are laid out is nice. I wish you could use one hand on the zipper pocket though. (You can to open usually but not to close). Length is pretty good as well. They have a drawstring now, which is far too stretchy to be of much use, but helps when using them as trunks. I would like some fun colors in them though...most of the colors look pretty drab and boring. How about Red, Blue, Green, Purple, whatever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shorts! Love the length on these shorts, they come down right over my knee cap. Even with a climbing harness or skydiving rig on, they still stay down around my knees. The stretch fabric is great for movement and if you're someone with some muscle around your hips and thighs these fit really nice (especially for slim fit shorts which usually I can't even button). I am 5'9" and 175 lbs and the size 32 fit really well. The zip pockets are really nice and they look nice enough to go get some dinner in. Sat on some belay ledges and the fabric is not picked or anything like that, so, so far they seem durable against granite. Can't say enough good things about these! Definitely will be buying more.
