Every day summer short 8/4/2018

I am totally surprised at how comfy these shorts are.
I put them on every night after work this summer and usually end up falling asleep in them you forget there even on. A pair of Doboson and corrugate shorts is my norm for the summer. Got them In fusion and definitely will be getting dark earth and conifer.
Would be sweet to see them in black also!

Bit large but very comfortable 8/2/2018

Only after a scouting trip, I noticed these were a tad large when I put them to use. While I wish I could exchange them I understand that I cannot after wearing them. That aside, they are very comfortable and breathable, and VERY quiet. It's nice to finally have a pair of shorts that don't "swoosh" with every step I take.

Great shorts! 7/28/2018

These shorts really are awesome! I have them in conifer and so far have only used them as walking around town shorts, but can tell by the way they perform they will also make for top notch field shorts. If anyone has any doubts about these, take the plunge and try them and you won’t be disappointed!

i live in these shorts all summer 7/26/2018

I picked my first pair up last year for a bow shoot where I wanted something that would breath and stretch when hiking, I already was a big fan of the corrugate guide pants and they NAILED IT with these. I picked up a couple more this year and it's all I wear!


How it fits
I'm a large in everything else and they fit great, my waste goes between 34 and 36 depending on where I am in getting ready for elk season :)

I pretty much love these... 7/26/2018

It so happens that I am wearing these amazing shorts now. I am sitting at my desk, and I literally thought... I need to write a review on these shorts. As far as being in the field goes, the corrugate guide pants are my gig; they are my all time favorite pair of pants... I have three pairs... and when FL came out with shorts, I was stoked. They fit with the same sizing as the pants, and they are super flexible and amazing. In the synopsis of the product FL jokingly says that these will become "your favorite pair of shorts," but honestly they aren't lying.

I am planning to use them during my early season elk hunt this year. Its sort of an experiment, but most of hunting is an experiment. Anyways these shorts receive my full endorsement, and I believe they are well worth the money.

Very functional shorts 7/26/2018

Just like the corrugate guide pants, I love the stretch factor of these shorts. The 4-way stretch nylon allows for unrestricted range of motion and movement when traversing obstacles in the brush or practicing shots at the range. I've worn these shorts fishing, hiking, at the range, and on date night and they've excelled on every occasion.

Best shorts ever! 6/8/2018

As mentioned many times prior these are top notch high quality and extremely comfortable. Wore them all day driving logging roads with zero complaints even wore at the gym and were easy to complete my workout in. Can't wait to wear them on the trail. Highly recommend.

My favorite shorts 6/7/2018

I’ve had my corrugate shorts for a few weeks now I absolutely love them. They are by far my favorite pair of shorts that I own now. They are extremely comfortable and fit perfectly. The only problem I have with them is now I don’t want to wear any other shorts that I own!

Nickname: Joel
Awesome Shorts 6/5/2018

These shorts are amazing! Super comfortable and durable at the same time, you can wear these shorts in the mountains and around town no problem.

Quality 5/31/2018

Outstanding shorts. Bought them a month or so ago and have been wearing and washing them nonstop with zero signs of fading or fatigue. Solid and rugged for getting after it on the trails, canoeing, house work, or just casual everyday wear, these shorts are extremely versatile. Will be ordering a few more to add to the rotation.

Nickname: A.M.
My favourite pair 5/30/2018

Absolutely love these shorts. The waistband has build in stretch panels, the material has the right amount of stretch, lots of pockets, super comfortable. The only drawback is the constant jokes about wearing camo because i got mine in ASAT and wear them everywhere.

Love these shorts! 5/22/2018

I wear these shorts to work, shoot 3D archery in them, and they’re great for ground blind hunting in Texas. Super comfy and great for everyday use!

Another Home Run 2/23/2018

Best Short you can buy hands down. Awesome material- great fit and comfortable as hell! I wear them everywhere- way better than a guide short you get from those wader companies that try to make "functional clothing." These things will hold up to anything- probably loose the lower half of your legs before these shorts go out!

Nickname: Chaz A
Perfect for warm hunting 2/7/2018

I bought these to try out for hot early bow deer season in Texas. I ended up wearing these shorts all the time! I even wore them on a cruise to Mexico! Super comfortable. Wish I had 5 pairs.

Comfortable, Cool, Durable 1/18/2018

I just got back from my first hunting trip using my new guide shorts. I am a size 34 waist usually and the size large shorts were just a tad big but nothing a belt can't fix. We hunting on the island of Molokai, Hawaii and the shorts kept me cool and comfortable in the hot Hawaiian sun. The shorts got snagged a few times on some thorn bushes but after the hunt I noticed no signs of damage. The water repellant finish does make for a slightly more noisy material but nothing of concern enough to shy away from this product. All in all a great product that I will for sure continue to use.

Better than Seersucker 12/3/2017

Couldn't ask for a better product for summer time in the Northeast. These shorts are very durable, breathable, and comfortable. From casual wear, food plot prep/maintenance, tree stand work or chilling by the grill working the evenings fare, these shorts do it all to perfection.

Nickname: Joey B
Good pair of shorts 10/26/2017

I really like these shorts. They stretch and are comfortable. The only reason I rated them 4 stars is because they are warm. The shorts are pretty thick which keeps them warm. I don't hunt in these but do a lot of hiking, fishing and just living in them. I'll continue to wear them until they fail and then buy a new pair!

Rugged, Cool, and Comfortable 9/28/2017

I used these shorts on an early archery NM desert muley hunt. I was very impressed by the breathability and toughness of these shorts. Mid day temps easily exceeded 80 degrees and never once did I feel hot.
The terrain consisted of sandstone and tall sagebrush and these shorts never snagged or ripped on anything. A very versatile comfortable rugged buy again pair of shorts.

Nickname: NM Guide
The. Best. 9/26/2017

I will definitely buying another pair or two.

Nickname: Dave
Awesome!!! 9/4/2017

Just like the pants, these shorts are my go to for hiking and packing animals in the heat. Super comfortable and stretchy. The material is ultra durable. I slid a significant amount in steep, rocky surfaces and these shorts show no sign of wear. They are also great for everyday wear.

Nickname: Tyler
WOAH! Love these shorts 8/21/2017

Currently own a pair of Kanab 2.0s and ordered these shorts for hike training in the Oklahoma mountains (yes we actually have some) thinking they might get torn up a little bit with the stickers and thorn bushes...but I was wrong. These shorts took a licking and kept on ticking. I worn them for 3 days straight and never once had an issue. the burrs brushed right off and there's not a single tear or pulled thread. The weather was pretty warm during the day (95+ degrees and over 50% humidity) but the short didn't seem to care. When the sun finally went down a slight breeze picked up and the shorts dried very quickly and were comfortable for the entire weekend; I never once wished I had brought a second pair with me and thank God I didn't wear my cotton cargo shorts. I'll definitely be ordering another pair in the future and would recommend these to anyone.

Rugged and Comfartable 8/20/2017

These are great shorts. I was a little concerned at first with the tapered fit. I thought they may be a little tight but after a few hikes I really like the fit. The tapered legs keep the shorts from catching on brush. The stretch allows you to move freely and with comfort. They are rugged and I have no concern of them catching on brush and being ripped.

If you don't skip leg day these stil fit 8/18/2017

Been wearing these on and off for the past week and a half as often as possible and I got to say from wearing them casually, chasing my kids, and hiking around the Tetons they're my new favorite do everything shorts. I wear a 34" waist and these shorts leave a little room in the waist but still allow for a comfy and flexible fit in the seat and thighs for those of us who don't shy away from squats and deads, plus the elasticity in the fabric allows you to
get your inner ninja on with little to no inhibitions. I'm a fan. If you're like me and loathe wearing pants in hot weather, don't skip leg day, and aren't afraid to hunt and hike like a kiwi, limey, or Aussie these are for you!!

The most comfortable pair of shorts I own! 8/15/2017

I have been wearing these all summer long and have to say they are the most comfortable pair of shorts I have ever owned. They stretch great, and the slim fit on my legs doesn't leave things too baggy like most shorts on the market. They also breath great and keep me cool on extra warm days.

Nickname: Jeremiah
Just what I wanted 8/15/2017

I really like shorts with that little bit of stretch that still fit a bit loose. This fit the mold perfectly. Material is excellent, fit is good, color is great. My only potential complaint would be the length is a bit longer than I prefer but I knew this was going to be a longer length short when I ordered it.

Nickname: Keith
Amazing!!!! 7/27/2017

These shorts are amazing! I wear them for my hot summer hunts and also backpacking adventures. I've falling in the water a couple times and they dry out fast.

I'm glad I have a couple pairs.

My only complaint, which is super critical, is the side pocket could be a little deeper or have a button to close the top. I put my cell phone in that pocket and would be nice to know it is safe from falling out.

Nickname: Daniel
Just as great as the pants. 7/17/2017

I bought these recently for a trip from IL to FL for a little vacation. I've had the Corrugate pants since they came out and I love them so I figured the shorts would be great too and I wasn't disappointed. Stylish enough to pass my girlfriends test I wore them on the plane and pretty much didn't take them off the whole trip. I'll definaltely be buying these in Fusion.

New faves 7/13/2017

These really are nice shorts, comfortable, stretchy, I like the tighter fit around the leg than traditional cargo shorts. These are well made, nicely stitched. Very happy these

Nickname: Ryan
Mostly love.... 7/12/2017

These shorts are super comfortable and move/flex with you just like the Corrugate pants. Love the material and pocket placement. My only complaint is that, with all the elastic in the waist, I have to size down to get them to stay up when you are hiking with a pack, but that makes the fit everywhere else a bit on the snug side. I still really like these shorts, but I prefer a specific sized fit rather than a S/M/L/XL range personally.

Nickname: Gabe
These Shorts are the bomb.com 7/6/2017

To start off I prefer shorts because of my prosthetic legs; that way I can make adjustments on them. These shorts are so comfortable yet very durable. I love the pants too but Id have a hard time not wearing the shorts most of the time. The pockets are in perfect position and large enough to store loads of gadgets. Took them on a backpacking trip and they are so light that I used them for trail running. I'm planning on getting more.

Nickname: Sidney
My favorite shorts 6/22/2017

I bought these shorts in the dry earth color and couldn't be happier. I wear them mountain biking, out to the bar, and wherever else. Mine are about mid knee when standing. I wear a large in firstlite pants and the large in shorts was right on. I'm normally a 34-36* 32 in men's pants. Lot's of stretch and light/ breathe too.

Awesome Shorts 6/21/2017

Super good pair of shorts. I have worn these a but already and there is nothing I would change about them. Worth every penny. The stretch is great and the fit is great. Took them out fishing wiping all sorts of garbage on them and just threw them in the wash and it all came right out. Bought 2 pair I like them so much.

Nickname: Ryan
Can't get enough of these shorts! 6/21/2017

Probably my favorite pair of shorts I wear. Just in time for the summer! I literally wear these shorts everywhere.. Hunting, camping, casual, you name it! I took these on a family trip to Zion Natl. Park and the only thing I regret is not buying more of these. They fit true to size, really comfortable to wear, and pockets are perfectly placed. Bottom line is these are a must! Buy a pair and you'll never regret it.

Very comfortable shorts. 6/13/2017

My corrugate shorts have really grown on me. Just like another reviewer, I'm just waiting on my size to be stock so I can order another. Love the stretch and feel of them. They are very comfortable and breath well. The only thing I wish was different is the pocket on the right leg. Just a little too small for some of the larger phones made these days.

best shorts EVER. 6/8/2017

I was at the Total Archery Challenge in San Antonio and saw the Hushin Crew in these, I didn't even know they made the guide shorts!! I ordered a pair soon as I got back. Another quality product from first lite, I'm going to need a couple more as they're my new every day shorts. Fishin, nice bbq with the family, scouting... best shorts you can get!

Best Shorts Ever! 6/2/2017

I just got these in the mail and would order another pair immediately if the size/color I wanted was in stock. These are absolutely perfect, they just became my favorite pair of shorts and I'd been wearing the same other brand of shorts for years. Great for everyday, fishing, shooting at the range, .... The side pocket holds my phone perfectly. I'll be owning more of these soon.
