Rated 5 out of 5 by from Third summer This is the 3rd summer I've purchased these shorts because my boys LIVE in them. They are their absolute favorites..they love the deep pockets that hold all their things and they are ultra comfortable. Just the right length for my guys, too...not too long; not too short. I've washed them a gazillion times and they hold up great. It's rare to be able to pass down shorts from my older boys to the youngest one but these last forever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mesh on pockets rip easily and pill making shorts look old Mesh on pockets rip easily and mesh pills making shorts look old. These shorts are only a few months old if you happen to wash them with anything velcro in the wash, the mesh gets ruined. The shorts themselves are excellent. Wish they were made with sold pockets.
