Comments about Royal Robbins Billy Goat 6-Pocket Performance Shorts - Men's:
Great pair of shorts.
I typically hike/backpack in swimsuits/board shorts because of their lightweight and drying capacity. These, however, have provided a great alternative - and with pockets!
Most of Royal Robbins' Billy Goat shorts are too short, but these are perfect: 1 inch above top of my kneecaps.
Somewhat form fitting at bottom so (a) you don't get the baggy cargo shorts feel when moving quickly/hiking and (b) you can sit down with your knees up and not have to worry about embarrassingly displaying things you don't want to be displayed. But this doesn't hinder mobility either as the hip/butt cut is a generous, active cut (at least for thin guys like me).
Very lightweight. Great breathability and wicking over cotton shorts, which is a big plus here in the humid South - probably not as important in my home state of Colorado or drier climates.
And they look classy enough for the consumption of adult beverages at any local bar after your time outdoors.
Feels true to size
Feels true to length
