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 would have given this product 5 stars except for the pocket design. Every brand seems to be obsessed with some unique, clever pocket that only they have. And those pocket are usually useless. That is the case on the left cargo pockets on this pair. One is useless (tiny), the other too small. (one big cargo pocket on each side would be fine, I'm not looking for Swiss Army shorts). Now for the good news. These shorts are true to size and have ample room for movement. Some other brands on Amazon are accurate on the waist but the butt is too narrow, restricting bending and squatting. I actually use my cargo shorts for outdoor activities, like they were originally intended and freedom of movement matters. I would buy these again, since every other brand has weird pockets too.
Last pair ordered the pockets were different. The right side was the same with a large outside pocket, but the left side was a series of small pockets that are not useful for anything. Even the cell phone falls out. Wish they would go back to two full pockets on either side. Also, would be great if there was another color of the same material as the ones ordered.
the last pair of these I purchased had a little pocket on the right pant leg that perfectly held my cellphone,.... these ones do not. not a huge deal but out of habit I keep reaching down to put my cellphone in a pocket that isn't there.
These shorts look great, have a lot of pockets, and seem pretty durable so far. I ordered my normal waist size, and they are a bit more snug than I like. After a few hours, they do loosen up a bit, and they weren't tight enough to return, but I just wanted to mention it. If you're between sizes, I'd probably go with the larger size; otherwise, just know they'll fit a bit more snug around the waist than you may expect. The seat and legs are sized very well, and they're pretty flattering (as much as cargo shorts can be).
Very good item, fit is amazing. I like the fact they have a button, instead of a rivet type thing, so if the bottom comes out, it can very easily be repaired. The style and color is also amazing, I will probably buy another pair...
