    These are my favorite shorts. I have 6 pair and have put all other shorts in a box under my bed. I have no problem with the sizing. I really appreciate the fact that they are not baggy or sloppy looking. Have had a couple pair for well over a year, wear them 10 months of the year, and have had no quality issues. My only dislike is that my t-shirt gets caught on the Velcro tab on the back pocket. Propper has added a zipper instead, on the newest version of these shorts.

    UPDATE 7/22/17. The seller needs to update the photos for these shorts. I ordered another pair on 719/17 expecting to get the older version of these shorts, as pictured, but received the newer version which I do not like as well. I also wear a smaller size in the newer version so I will have to return these.

    As an FYI, the older version has slightly smaller cargo pockets ( fit an iPhone 7 plus perfectly), Velcro closure on rear pockets, and the fly button is sewn onto the shorts. The newer version has zippered rear pockets and the fly button is attached with a length of nylon webbing. The newer version also fits differently; I had to go down a size.

    Great quality shorts with great durability and more features (for less money too) vs. my favorite Hurley Phantom Hybrids, with little sacrifice in breathability or fit and finish.

    However when ordered, a size that fits in every other shorts I've bought, was too tight. Tried to return... but Amazon would not exchange it for another Summer Tac short, in a different size -- gave me a list of choices for exchange that included several items... but *not the shorts*? I looked at the listing for the Summer Tacs... and they were indeed in-stock, from the same vendor I ordered them from :| So, spent the forced refund on another pair of Hurley's, as I could actually get those delivered, on-time.

    C'mon Amazon -- buying 'The Expanse' didn't cost *this* much... did it? My goodness, what a string of disappointments I've received as Amazon service recently. :(

    Side pocket zipper failed in the closed position (with my wallet in it!) that I had to destroy the zipper to get open. Tried to get help returning the shorts with customer support but they were not very helpful since I ordered it from Amazon. Just requested a refund. It's unfortunate since I've bought a lot of Propper products and other than this zipper I've like their products.

    Well, this is my third pair I ordered as the sizing is not correct, My waist is a 31-32 but this pair of 32 shorts is closer to a 30 than a 32. I just placed an order for the 34 to see how that fits and then I'll have to return a third pair to Amazon once I can figure out what Propper sizing works. Don't know what's the problem of sizing clothes correctly but Propper should think about using another tailor. The short material is great and love all the pockets but come on, get the sizing right, as it's a guessing game on what waist size works.

    These are unequivocally the best, most comfortable shorts I've ever owned! The rip-stop material is nylon making it lightweight, durable, and very quick drying. I had a dirt smudge on one pair and used a washcloth with a little soap and water, and it came right off, and what's more, it was dry 5 minutes later. The inner pockets are a mesh material, so comfy, and the number of pockets and layout is superior to any cargo shorts I've owned. I own BDU, 511, and Tru-Spec as well but overall these Proppers are hands down the best and most comfortable. They are all I will buy from now on for year round wear. I live in Corpus Christi TX.

    I wear a size 42 and these pants were a little tight in the crotch area. I like the feel of the pants but a size bigger would be too big. The cut of the pants are the issue not the size. If I lose a little weight the fit might be better, but for now I will just hold onto them and update later.

    If you are a bigger guy..do yourself a favor and go up a couple sizes. You will absolutely love these. Im 6'1, 350, 46 minus on the waist and i bought 50 for my medic side gig. Trust me. Shorts are nothing short....of amazing.

    I wear these shorts on the ambulance; they are perfect. Way better than 5.11 or other's I've worn. Highly recommend. As others have said; sizes then to run a little tight so I also bought 2" bigger at waist then my jeans suggest and they fit perfect. Been using them every weekend for about a month and half now and no rips in mesh pockets. Zipper and button still functional. All is well
