I have two pairs of these shorts, and they both perform great. The two front and side pockets are deep enough to keep things from falling out, and the back pocket has a zipper to keep your wallet safe. The back pocket also turns inside out and the entire shorts can be stuffed and zipped into a small package. There is also a hidden pocket inside of the shorts, in case you want to keep anything out of sight and closer to your body.

The nylon material is comfortable and cool, but it's also strong and drys fast. The inseam length is 10 inches, and it falls right at my knee. Overall a great value, and worth the price.

These shorts are simply amazing. I wear them for anything and everything. They are hard to rip, hard to stain, comfortable, and dry fast. They weigh very little, less than 4oz I think. A neat feature is that they are also able to scrunch up in its own back pocket. Buy these and you won't be sorry.
