Rated5out of5byVonWandurerfromGreat, great shorts--instant favoritesEx Officio is the premier manufacturer of functional clothes; only their prices are steep so if you can get their products on sale, seize the day. These shorts are no exception. Lots of pockets...lots. There's a hidden zip side pocket and a hidden zip back pocket (right side which stinks for lefties). There's also a zip cargo pocket. In other words, when you travel or camp, things won't fall out (or get involuntarily extracted). The length of the shorts are longer than usual: a little past the knee. But, they are by no means knickers. The length is great and when you sit down the shorts don't suddenly hike up and become Euro-tennis shorts. The waist is slightly (slightly) larger than the stated size, but it's an easy fix with a below. I would have preferred some elastic on the waist band, but that's a small complaint. The stitching quality is impressive as well--double stitches in some places. I have these in khaki and loden and the colors are just like in the REI photo. If they had more colors...I'd have more shorts.
