Awesome! Great warm weather shorts for summer activities. Fit is perfect. I love that FL offers them in specific waist sizes instead of the usual S, M, L, etc. Fabric is very breathable, fast drying, and light weight. I like the EDC knife carry design/reinforcement in both front pockets. Deep pockets with mesh sides. Waist band has s silicone treatment to keep them up on your waist. My first pair was missing the zipper pull on the back pocket, but FL exchanged it quickly. Ok FL, let offer them in more colors.
So I think I got a little ambitious on sizing. I have regular shorts that are 32's and 34's. My 34's are way too big and my 32's fit well. This pair is a bit snug. They also don't have any stretch in the waist in case someone thinks they may. Now that's out of the way I'll say that these are great. They're thin and breathable and the knife gusset is awesome. I'm planning on wearing these on a coastal fishing trip later this summer, especially after I knock a few pounds off. If you're on the fence, buy them. I'll be buying more.
The search for a perfect summer short is finally over. While most others are light enough to dry quickly and be comfortable theu look absurd and are reallllllyyyyy only half a step above swim trunks and wear our/ tear easily. The flip side is your stuck wearing a pair of shorts so thick and heavy once dashing across a river or wading out a bit for the perfect cast they may never actually dry.... Ever. These shorts manage to be light as air, flexible, seemingly impervious to staying wet and have the perfect fit all while looking like a normal pair of shorts. Once the weather finally turned to shorts weather in Maine I put these on and may peel them off around September some time. They've been in the canoe, fishing, swimming, waking the dog, to the store, about town and reallllllyyyyy whatever else I've done. They stay perfectly on place thanks to the rubberized text on the inside of the waist band which for those of us lacking in the booty department is a godsend. Even on my taller frame they hit perfectly across the knee. The zippered rear pocket keeps the wallet secure. The only fault I've found with them is the pockets are a touch shallow and thus your phone can easily slide out due to the slickness of the fabric, I'm going to chalk that up to phones getting to big as I've been blinded by love for these shorts.
This is a really awesome short! Lightweight material, 3 pockets so perfect if you don’t need to carry a bunch of stuff. They don’t get In my way at all, or feel baggy. Love the fit.
