Comments about ExOfficio Roughian Cargo Skim'r Shorts - Men's:
Ex 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.
Feels true to size
Feels true to length
