    by fromI would and did buy this product again Fit's great, love the colors, can't wait to wear. I went to REI and tried them on and purchased them. The next day, I saw that they had some online for sale and decided to purchase another pair. Can't wait to wear them!

    by fromLove the shorts, disike velcro pockets These shorts fit me perfectly (size 2, 5', 100lbs), no binding, twisting or pulling. My only complaint is the front velcro pocket; the two velcro pockets on the back are tolerable. I find opening a velcro pocket annoyingly difficult. When closing the pockets the velcro patches must be lined up perfectly to avoid an uneven closure that doesn't lay flat. I wish RR would replace the front velcro pocket with a zipper like the other front pocket. I will buy another pair, but think I'll remove the velcro and stitch the front pocket closed.

    by fromPockets galore! Bought a pair of these in a 12 (at the time, my usual size) and found they were j-u-s-t slightly too tight. Sized up to a 14, which was much more comfortable. Used the button tabs on the waist to get the fit just right. I adore the number and variety of pockets. My only quibble is that they have Velcro closures with the "hook" tab facing out. If you don't get the "hook" and "loop" tabs lined up just right, the "hook" side snags against fabric chairs, shirt hems and any other fabric you might bump up against. If RR would simply switch to put the "loop" tab facing out, these shorts would be perfect -- though I just took them off entirely. I find that I don't need them, especially as the back pockets are so deep that there's little danger of things falling out.

    by fromWonderful! These shorts are so wonderful, you really couldn't ask for a better product. They pack down really nice and dry quickly. Comfortable for almost anything you're doing. I wear them when I canoe,for rigorous hiking, and casual camping.

    by fromI bought one, then bought two more I bought one pair, and loved it. It doesn't wrinkle like cotton shorts do. Great in hot weather. I went back and bought two more. They are my favorite shorts.

    by fromI bought a second one These shorts are lightweight, cool despite being nylon, and extremely comfortable. I am buying a second one exactly the same color black which always looks great and doesn't look as wrinkled as does the tan. I hope [...] always carries this product.
