Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loyal customer has bought many of these I first bought a pair of the concrete and asphalt colors years ago. The first pairs I bought were the best. I bought a second couple of pairs about two years ago online. The quality of these were less, they ripped at the seams over time like several of the reviews state. The original two pairs outlasted these. I just bought two more pairs and they look to be the same quality as the second batch. I still rate these high because they fit me well and can be used for working out (I do Crossfit in them) or going out on a Friday night. They don't stain easily and dry quickly after kayaking in them. All around my go to shorts for an active lifestyle. I recommend them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor range-of-movement for "athletic" builds I've got what is generously called an athletic build, which means I have big thighs and a big butt (from cycling, I swear!). These shorts are a problem for guys like me who hike or climb, because the range of movement gets quite limited if you move your legs anywhere beyond normal walking or stair-climbing. That said, if you're just walking around, or if you're skinnier than I am, you might be well-served by these shorts. They were perfectly comfortable, even on me, when doing normal things like sitting, or walking. The material is great, and the design is otherwise well thought-out, with good pocket placement, etc. Returned, and bought the Kuhl Rambler 10" inseem, which fit great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Travel and Daily Use I bought these for a trip to Europe because I was looking for a breathable fabric that would keep me cool and dry quick when washed. Not only did they live up to both expectations, but the zippered pockets (one inside left pocket and one bottom of right leg) increased my confidence that my valuables would be secure from pickpocketers. Aside from the technical features, what I love most about these shorts are that they look like your typical chino shorts and can be used not only for hiking and traveling but a casual night out. The versatile style and technical features make these shorts a must have and my new favorite shorts. I will certainly be buying more of these in the other colors!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Purchased online in June 2017. I exchanged my first pair after two washings and no activity more adventurous than walking to the grocery store resulted in a hole at the seam. The photo below is the new pair received in July 2017. This is after about 3-4 washings, some car drive time, and one leisurely hike. These will be going back, too, as soon as that seam rips in a week or two or the crotch fabric otherwise disintegrates. Both were in the color concrete. Otherwise the fit is nice and they are super comfortable with good pockets. Based on the other positive reviews I'd speculate REI recently got a poor quality control batch as I am not the only customer with this recent experience and feedback.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from falling apart I originally got these for a trip to the S. Pacific and they wore great. Biggest complaint I had during that trip is the thigh pocket on the right leg keeps coming unzipped. So that originally dropped them a star. The reason I am giving them 1 star is what happened recently. I was wearing them the day before Hurricane Irma was to hit FL and was busy running around all day with preparations. The seam on the left thigh started ripping about noon and kept ripping more and more all day. By time I stopped working at 10pm that right was from the pocket down to hem at the bottom of the shorts. This is a isolated incident as others on here have reported the same tear.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inspect seams before purchase These look nice and are lightweight. The fit is little tight so I had to go a size up to get a comfortable range of motion. Unfortunately, the outer left seam on mine failed after I had only worn them a few times. Also, one of the seams at the crotch is starting to fail. I would recommend carefully examining all seams for fraying fabric before purchasing a pair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dirt magnet. Poorer design. These shorts seem to be a dirt magnet. Something about the fabric causes dirt and dust to easily adhere to them, and it is difficult or impossible to brush off. Have not had this problem with other pants/shorts. Also, the design is not as good as the older version that I had. The older version had two side-seam zip pockets, not just one. The left zip pocket inside the left hand pocket is not as good, because using both pockets forms a big lump over your left thigh. Also, the older version had two zip rear pockets, not just one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts, perfect for anything active/outdoors Bought these pants to start the season off with some clean new gear. Having never worn REI shorts before I wanted to give these a shot because they are lighter than the Prana shorts that I typically wear for outdoors activities and they were quite a bit cheaper. After wearing these a few times I'm sold and will never go back to the more expensive brands. They are light, tough, and dry much faster than I anticipated. My only complaint is that the zippered pockets can be difficult to open/close because of the small zipper pull. I remedied this by running a short piece of ribbon through the pull.

There seems to be a number of negative comments regarding the seams failing. Is this problem limited to a certain lot #? Has this problem been addressed?
