- Great shorts Review by Mike
Great fit, appear to be very well made, although I've only had them out a few times. The cut is just right, won't restrict your movement at all but are not ridiculously baggy. Haven't tried the pads yet, but the pockets for them are unobtrusive.
The button and zip fly seem well made and the loops were wide enough for a proper sailing belt and held my leather man perfectly for a tough day of racing.
The biggest thing that would have made these 5-stars would be some secure storage: the normal hand pockets are great size, but wide open, and the thigh pocket just has two small velcro tabs. No zippers anywhere. Still, for the price, I'm very happy with them.
In the silver they look great as sailing shorts, but because the seat of them is a much darker grey, they definitely have a bit of technical appearance to them. The darker ones would probably be less noticeable for average around-town wear.
