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've always had Wrangler products in the past (mostly jeans) but I've come across a few of their cargo shorts. I wasn't sure what to expect with this pair of pants as I've had bad experiences in the past with older companies going "cheap" and sacrificing quality for the sake of better margins (i.e. Levi's).
This pair of pants definitely exceeded my expectations in terms of quality, comfort and style! It fit very snug and the premium twill is worth the extra $ and the pricing is still competitive enough to consider this a bargain. I was expecting a bit more "padding" in terms of the material used as it is a bit thinner compared to previous pants I've worn from Wrangler. It doesn't seem like it will wear out quickly so maybe the thinner material was done on purpose to help with comfort in the heat. I've owned these for about 3 years now and they are still going strong! Finally made the time to review these. Will consider buying more of these in the future!
Outstanding cargo shorts. Very well made and fit as expected. I just picked the size as I would for my regular loose fit jeans.
Love the fact that the cotton fabric is a bit thinner than other cargo shorts I have. Thinner but not too thin, just perfect for hot summer days be it hiking, biking or walking a trail. The side pockets are deep and well made too (no cutting corners here) so you don't have to worry about losing things whatever it might be. The back pockets are big enough to hold my Pixel XL phone with a case without feeling tight or uncomfortable and I can still close it with the velcro straps for extra security. Moreover, one of the side pockets is also big enough to hold my phone. So I have a choice of how I want to carry my phone. The small pockets are also great for keys, a wallet or something else.
When you put them on out of the box they might feel a bit tighter than what you might expect from a 'loose-fit'. That's how I felt, but after wearing them for a day they kind of stretch a bit, not a lot, just enough to make 'loose-fit' without being too loose or affecting the fit.
Just keep in mind that although some of the product photos show a belt, making you think that the belt is included but it's NOT. It wasn't a big deal for me as I have a couple of extra survivors belts. But they should mention it in the description.
Bottom line, after two days of wearing them, I loved the look, the feel, and the functionality so much that I had bought a second pair in a different color. For this price, this is as good as it could get and I absolutely love them.
These are decent shorts, especially for the price. That said, the last time I ordered this same short, it was constructed from a much heavier material. Much more like denim. Very durable and very comfortable. The pair I just received is quite thin, almost like a very heavy T-shirt material. Also, in lieu of snaps pockets are held shut with Velcro...very 1989.
Bottom line: OK shorts, not great quality. Will not buy this SKU again.
These shorts are made very small and are very short. I ordered 3 pair, size 33, for my son’s birthday, returned them, and ordered Lee’s. Lee’s are quality, generous sizing, great colours, length, and fit! Do not waste your time or money buying Wrangler shorts!
The shorts turned out to be better than I expected. The sizing is true. Material seems good. and they're comfy. But those pockets - who designed those? The main pockets taper inwards, making carrying a large smartphone almost impossible. And the side pockets are too small to carry anything significant. The material seems thin enough to enjoy in the hot summers. Let's hope it's durable too.
Extremely good quality shorts. These shorts fit slightly bigger and are long, which is nice for all of us taller guys. They also have a bigger thigh area which is nice for those of us with bigger thighs.
Way too small! My teenage son is 6'4" and somewhere in the 200lb range. He's very athletic and usually plays several sports...but due to Covid and increased inactivity he is between a 36 and 38 waist currently. I ordered these in 38 thinking he could throw on a belt if they were too loose. Well, no need for that! He could barely do them up! I figured I either ordered or was sent the wrong size but no, tag says 38. I measured them against his other shorts/jeans that fit and these are easily a full size smaller (maybe 2 sizes!) in the waist! He has Wrangler Flex fit jeans for his summer job and they fit fine...in a 36! Not sure what happened here. 😕
