Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shorts Money Can Buy These shorts are truly epic. The waist fit is perfect, with enough flex to feel like I could be a stunt man for Jackie Chan. The length is also great, short enough to let my thighs get some sun while still long enough to prevent a charge for indecent exposure. I actually own three pairs of these shorts in three different patterns to fit any occasion. The pattern says, "hey, I take being on the water seriously, but I'm still here to party." To be honest, I even played a round of golf in these bad boys. Best round I've ever had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good shorts on the shorter side of things Got these shorts in a 6 inch inseam (1/2 foot). I think the color's not posted here because I bought it at an outlet. They're great for someone looking for a stylish swim trunk above the knee with all day wear. Two hand pockets, a back zipping pocket (v. necessary), and a side utility pocket hit all function points. Plus the drawstring is killer, never comes untied. Surprisingly quick to dry, mesh liner does take a bit longer. But i pull the pockets out and it's worth it for having the storage and not letting the hotdog roll off the grill, while still making my buns look good. Buy one if you like my grill joke. Buy two if you swim everyday. Buy three if you do the backstroke. Buy four if you just like to have too many of anything. If you're buying five, I want commission.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the beach I have worn this pair and another pair bought last year for my days at the beach. Perfect for lounging in, walking the pier or hanging on the dock while quickly being able to fish or jump in the water. Great versatile and stylish option for everyone who loves to be near, on, or in the water! So well made!!!!
