  • 5 out of 5 These are excellent shorts. The material is very similar to Tilley shorts, but at a third of the price. This is much like Grenfel cloth invented in Newfoundland. Wears like iron. Nice fit. Great service. Will buy a couple of navy shorts as well.

  • Perfect shorts

  • 5 out of 5 I'm completely spoiled now -- I can't stand to wear any other shorts. Unlike full pants, these shorts come nicely creased and look appropriate with a golf shirt -- they don't have a "cargo pant" feel. I wish they came with a belt like Propper's pants.

  • Really nice design.

  • 5 out of 5 Naturally I am always leary when it comes to purchasing clothing items online but these Shorts were exactly as described with a great fit. They were actually a little better quality than I was anticipating. Very pleased with the decision to purchase and the product.

  • Needed more of these tactical shorts

  • 5 out of 5 Durable, easy to clean. Comfortable, waterproof, lots of pockets, Best walking shorts I have come across. Ideal for summer wear, hiking, exercising, etc. I have about 5-6 of them, not all Proppers.

  • 5 out of 5 I have two pair now and have had a chance to wear them in hot Georgia weather. They are very comfortable. I wash and dry them and seldom have to iron them. I agree that the magazine pocket is too short for my new cell phone

  • Good product.

  • 5 out of 5 Comfortable and neat for summer wear. The blend does not soak and keeps going when cotton is just soaked.

  • 5 out of 5 Great pair of shorts. The only thing is the pocket for the knife needs to be on the left side of the shorts as well, for the left handers that are out

  • not exactly like the full leg version

  • 4 out of 5 the cellphone pocket on these is shorter than the full pants version.The quality is good, but their usefulness is very limited since I rely on the full size cell pocket. if you have any of the newer smart phones the cell pocket will not fit it.

  • 5 out of 5 This is my second order. First was for 2 pair 1 size larger (38)as per comments. Second order was for 3 pair and correct size(36). Fits perfectly. I am totally pleased and will order more. Love the pockets and material...stain and water

  • Ludicrously over-sized now.

  • 2 out of 5 I've had a couple of pairs of these for a few years. Just got a new pair of the "same" size. They're like baggy clown pants. Maybe they took the 2011 reviewers comments too seriously. There is literally enough extra room to stuff a small watermelon down in there. With the waistband at the navel, they hang below the knees. And I am not a small guy. I have no idea what size one should order. They seem to be made for "pear-shaped" people. Good for those guys, I guess.

  • 4 out of 5 I am wearing theses shorts for the 1st time today. I bought one size larger than I normally wear and they fit fine. With the expandable waist line, maybe I could have ordered my normal size. The material seems a little stiff but ok. The shorts have more pockets than I have " stuff" . Will wait until I wash/ wear a few times and see how they do in Georgia summers to give out the 5 th star

  • 5 out of 5 These shorts are great. Definitely order one size up because they do run small. The pockets are fantastic. I have a really large wallet and the thigh pockets are perfect.

  • Very Durable

  • 4 out of 5 I got these for use in a warehouse. The constant leaning on moving belts tends to shred cotton clothing in a month or two, but these show almost no signs of wear after 3 months! I've also worn them through the very hottest days and found them pleasantly comfortable as they don't become moisture laden and start to fall off. The pants have a strange cut, perhaps meant for actual "duty" use...all the same I wear my pants lower than the natural waste and find I need to roll the waste band over once to keep my belt from slipping over the top of the elastic, and it better positions the pockets.

  • Perfect Pockets

  • 5 out of 5 I love these! The have a wallet-sized pocket within the large rear pockets that's perfect for.... wallets. The mag pouch on the front is perfect because when I'm not carrying a spare mag it fits an iPhone perfectly, leaving my left pocket free for my keys. Come to think of... why doesn't every pair of pants, tactical or not, have a 5th pocket specifically for mobile

  • 5 out of 5 I have only one simple complaint. They are sized a size smaller than what you would wear in 5.11's or Black hawks! So if your ordering a size 30 better get a size 32! Otherwise these are the best shorts I have ever owned and when I mentioned the others above I have worn some other manufactures before. I love the easy care, they are comfortable and look very classy. The last as well as the other's previously mentioned but for a lot less $$$$. If your not a billionaire or a CEO of an oil company then for the budget minded buyer, shop no further, just get over your ego thinking you can still fit into the same size pants as you did in high school.

  • 5 out of 5 I order a pair in Black. HAVE TO GET THESE ONE SIZE UP YOUR NORMAL SIZE TO FIT. Love these shorts. Better than 5.11 for the price of a 5.11. You can buy two of Propper shorts instead.

  • 4 out of 5 These shorts are great in every aspect with all the Velcro pocket closures and storage areas. The only problem I found was that they are tight. I ordered a 32 as I am a 32 in all other shorts I buy. There is no room left in these shorts. So I would suggest buying the next size up from what you wear.
