These shorts are all-around solid. For a shorter guy like me, it's great that they have an 8" inseam option. The material is stretchy , comfortable and lightweight. The zipper pocket on the right leg is (barely) big enough to fit an iPhone 6. They're good for most outdoor activities and nice enough to wear to casual events too. Cons: I really wish that these had a draw string so i could hike without using a belt to keep them up. Waist seems larger than a normal 32". I need to wear a belt to keep these up and usually 32"s fit me perfectly. The button on the front is a little long – it would be nice if it were flatter to my waist and didn't stick out quite so much.
