REI Cliff Cave 3/4-Length Cargo Pantsis rated3.4out of5by5.
Rated5out of5byfromSuper comfy, also stylishI gave this as a gift to my husband. These are now his new favorite pair of shorts. They are just dressy enough to go out for any casual occasion, but sturdy enough for regular daily activities in the workshop. They are light enough to be comfortable in the Texas summer heat, but also thick enough for a cooler day.

Rated2out of5byfromGreat Style, Not So Great QualityMY husband had been looking for below the knee shorts and Cliff Cave fit the bill. He liked liked them so much that I ordered another pair. After only a few washings, following manufacturers guidelines, the stitching on the edges of the back pockets on both pairs started fraying. Fortunately, I was able to stitch the loose edges together and my results were acceptable, but not perfect. These are casual shorts that are worn often and will require frequent laundering. My fear is that they will not last a second season. Perhaps if these REI brand shorts were manufactured in the US instead of China, the quality would be greatly improved.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat shortsGreat shorts. At 6'4" 190# these provide fantastic coverage without the Capri look. Very comfortable. I wear the 34" and the fit is perfect. Not sure about the other comment being too tight. I have biker quads and found these to fit well without being tight. These are blended nylon, cotton, polyester, but don't have a synthetic look or feel. I prefer the look and the inherit stretch allowed would be nice for climbing. I paid full price and was pleased when REI credited me the difference when the shorts went 50% off.

Rated4out of5byfromGreat Shorts!Got these shorts for casual use and occasionally climbing outside. The shorts are very comfortable and allow full range of motion.

Rated1out of5byfromJust awfulThese shorts are extremely tight and umcomfortable. I am 6', 176 lbs with a 32.5" waist with just a bit of muscle in my quads and hamstrings. Nonetheless, these shorts are so tight that I could barely get them on, let alone walk or hike in them. No one wants to hike in skinny jeans and it is beyond me why REI even brought this product to market.
