very function pair of shortsThe fit, the comfort, the coolness of the short was great. I had bought a previous pair locally. Liked them so much that I tried to order another pair. The only slight flaw was that I had to have a thinner belt with this pair. This pair couldn't accommodate a 1.5" belt easily. Had to be less. Wear them a lot with this hot summer!

Good athletic shorts[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Found this to be better than the AP Canyon shorts. The material can stretch with movement and a belt is not necessary. Pockets are deep and have a relaxed feel. 7” inseam regular fit was as expected and just the right length that I am use too.
