To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I purchased the dark blue and light blue as my first purchase to try them out. I needed to replace some old mesh shorts that were faded and did not have pockets. Well I'm sure glad I found these and tried them out. I liked them so much I order more in dark cammo, green, maroon, and brown. The brown version I up sized to see what the difference was been the X-Large and XXL as I weigh 215 lbs. If I gain more weight, then the XXL will do fine. XXL works now, but I can tell a difference there's just more material and it's more baggy on me. The size chart is spot on. I will say I was a little disappointed in the green as it's a dull green and not a bright green. I like having pockets that zip close, but I'm not used to having a hard zipper for side pockets. I like that one can not see through them as the material is thick enough. As a bonus, the G appears to be reflective should I wear these at night. The draw string is standard and as always wants to go into the fabric during the wash cycle, whereby I have to fish it out afterwards. Ugh. If they could have somehow made a system where this never happens, it would be worth extra money. Since I'm 5ft 9.5inches, the shorts hang above my knees about an inch or two, but definitely not mid-thigh. This is how I like them. They seem sturdy enough to wear outside for running, sports, or a quick trip to the store, but I primarily lounge around in them at home. However I have put my wallet, keys, and cell phone in the pockets and with the draw string pulled tight and knotted, they held up.
i'm 5'10", but my inseam for long pants is 27-28 inches, in other words i am of average height, but i have short legs. Many times gym shorts i buy that fit me in the waist, the inseam goes past my knees. That drives me nuts. It is almost as if i am wearing long pants that are too short for me. These shorts go right to my knees which i can live with. If you are taller obviously, the inseam will sit higher up on your leg, above the knee. I Also like the zipper feature. Gives me a little more confidence when carrying my wallet that it wont fall out of my pocket. Highly recommended.
