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.
