    REI Sahara Cargo Shorts - Men's is rated 4.1282 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good shorts I've always loved REI's Sahara Cargo Shorts because they're super comfortable and great for day hikes in warm weather. I hike at least two miles almost daily and I've never had a problem with comfort. But two of the four I previous bought have ripped. This year's shorts are even thinner than previous versions. That doesn't necessarily mean they're more likely to rip but it does concern me. The shorts are also susceptible to objects falling out of the pockets when seated in the car.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from REI Sahara Cargo Shorts Nice shorts, but why don't they keep making the same shorts in the same cloth. The previous version was better cloth. This new version is too lightweight. Why change a good thing????????

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from PLEASE bring back the old design PLEASE REI, read this review and others like it. The old design (internal belt, circa 2010 or so) were the BEST SHORTS I have EVER owned. I bought 3 pairs and I'm down to one now that are functional, because I wore them constantly, for everything. The new deisgn with the removable belt are not nearly as nice. Material not quite as good, and the belt is a pain. I would gladly pay list price for 5 pairs of the old design - they were that good. PLEASE BRING THEM BACK!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shorts! I want more! I love these shorts, they are a great buy. Ill be ordering more pairs when I get back from my next trip. The materials are great, and I washed them and then left them out to dry and were dry within a few hours. No shrinkage. Also the sizing is funny, SO listen carefully. If you are a 32-33-34 waist I would recommmend a "Large" These include a small belt that helps, but I dont need to use it, I just have it to keep them tight. The shorts have a elastic/banded waist so they fit great on my 33-34 inch waist. If you are pretty skinny, IE 30-31-32 waist I would get a medium. The shorts are just past me knee were I like them, Not above the knee at all.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bad Snap Altogether, I like these shorts. The material is light and comfortable. However, there are two points that prevent me from giving a 5-star rating. First, the main snap has metal backing up against my skin. If there's any tension in the waist line, the snap tends to lean. The metal backing has a surprizingly sharp edge that cuts into me. The upper part of the snap is abnormally thick. In total, the snap is over .41" thick (without the added belt buckle). Compare this to the metal snap in Levis which is only .34" thick. This would be very annoying under a backpack waist belt. Rather than return them, I had my wife sew a 1" square of soft leather behind the snap to keep the sharp edge at bay. For an REI logo'd pair of shorts, I'm saddened they would accept the super-thick snap design with sharp metal. Second, I really love the idea of a smaller pocket on the right leg for a cell phone. Most phones swim in cargo pockets. My Samsung GS3 fits in the pocket, but is too tall to close the flap over it. My wife's iPhone (which is all REI seems to think exists) fits perfectly even with a TPU cover. With the flap tucked in behind the phone, I've had the phone fall out of the pocket while sitting down. I joke about REI and the iPhone, but when you look at their offerings for phone accessories, they seem to only have stuff for iPhone. Bottom line: I'd reccomend them with the noted caveats. Thanks.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why change? I've purchased a bunch of these shorts over the years. Loved them! (past tense) The old design was far superior. I don't like the new, removeable belt. If the old belt were kept, there would be no need for elastic, which is uncomfortable. The material this time around seems weak. REI, I hope you're reading. Why change a good thing? I hope you go back soon. Otherwise, I'm on the hunt for new, favorite shorts.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Older style was better Loved the older version, the belt was built in, not removable. Always falls out in wash/dry cycle. The inseam is also longer now. My older "mediums" are at least 2" shorter then my new "mediums", which hang below my knees. These are really the only two cons I have, but it's enough that I'll look for shorts elsewhere next time I'm shopping.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good shorts This is the second pair of REI Sahara shorts I've owned, and the first ones served me well for over 5 years. The new shorts are similar in construction to the old ones, but have a different type of belt. Unfortunately, I don't like the new belt as much. The belt is loose in the belt loops and falls out often when unlocked. Also the belt lock is not as easy to use as in the old short. All that said, these shorts are still great...
