Here's what other sites are saying:

Stuff the pockets of your Kavu Chilli Long Short with dog biscuits and take your giant wild canine out to the grassy knoll for some obedience training. This longer version of the popular Chilli Short is great for climbing or hiking, especially with a pup that you can't take anywhere but outside. Before you even start the training, you're pinned down and all the biscuits are gone while the big back pockets are coated in slobber. It's a good thing the Chilli has double-reinforced seams and a rear internal wallet stay so you won't ever lose your shorts and cash to the same dog that eats closets of shoes for breakfast.

Now then, Kavu's Chilli Long Shorts might sound like an oxymoron, but ... well, actually, 'long shorts' is pretty much a classic example of an oxymoron. You get the point though; for shorts, these are pretty long, but for pants, they're still pretty short. Even the word 'Chilli' implies an oxymoron. So spicy, they're cool. So cool they're spicy. Looks like Kavu just served up a double salchow oxymoron smack down and tried to sneak it past us without our knowing. Yeah, we're on to you and your word games, Kavu. Better luck next time.

Kavu said, "Why not take a best seller and add some length to it?" Ta Da - the Chilli Long Shorts. This comfortable cotton short looks great on the trail or around town.100% cotton canvas, Mountain Washed for a soft comfortable feel.A low profile, half-elastic waist with a built in burly nylon belt fits just right under any conditions.Four half moon pockets, two front and two rear, give you plenty of space to carry what you need.A freedom gusset and double needle-reinforced seams, guarantee you won't have that embarrassing split seam when you have to stretch that little bit further than normal.A button and zip fly along with a 12" inseam round out this great pair of shorts.


Canvas shorts just became more comfortable thanks to the elastic waistband built into KAVU's Chilli Shorts that provide comfort in a longer-fitting short. Hidden by a rugged-looking belt, the waistline provides a non-restrictive fit, unlike the usual stiff feel of canvas pants, plus, a crotch gusset provides extra room to move without extra fabric.
