      Reviewer: Todd Winston

      9/13/2017

      The fit was spot on, all stitching seams great, these are my new favorite shorts. I love the magazine pockets, they free up my other pockets for other gear. If you are thinking about buying them, stop thinking and just do it.

      Work in a hardware store as a deptartment manager, so I need to look nice but have durable cloths that repel stains and are easy to wash. These feel comfortable and exceed my expectations.

      These are nice comfortable shorts. A little tight in the crotch and has a short zipper fly. Fits like a pair of jeans.

      I live in these shorts all summer! The cell phone pocket is super convenient, and the fabric is tough and breathable at the same time.
