    Good: Durable, great for summer, even at the gym for workout; slots and loops for items; good manpants length

    Bad: "cell phone pocket" are really for items like pens and knives, or old 90s flip phones. They are either too shallow for large items, or too narrow to retrieve small items. Weird dimensions, you'd think they'd just make them slotted thigh cargo pockets with the same width.
    I bought the 28" waist, but it kinda felt like 30" given how much space around my waist, and I'm actually getting fatter too. Propper tends to have weird size fluctuation over their series, the original tactical shirts for instance feel like tents at XS but perfect with Kinetic shirt.

    Overall good shorts, I'd buy the blue if I didn't already have a navy one, but it wasn't on sale.

    GOOD:
    * The fit, comfort, etc are all great.
    * There is a silicone stripe in the waistband that keeps them from slipping down.
    * The belt loops are wide.
    * Fabric is rip-stop, and small splashes bead up.

    BAD:
    * The front, flat, cellphone pockets are designed for 1990s flip phones.
    * The side cargo pockets have extra pockets inside that get in the way of putting things inside.
    * Plastic, sewn button instead of rivet or snapper.

    These are good solid shorts. Good heavy sturdy material. Good wasteband with stay put band for tucked shirts. Truspec ascent is a bit softer and a little shorter.
    Good selection of pockets but I prefer the Truspec ascent pockets. I thought the cell pockets on the front would be interesting and hold the phone higher, however, since it is in front it sticks you in the leg when sitting. The spot for edc knife is a reinforced spot in corner of pocket which is ok but not as good as the Ascent dedicated pocket.
    Overall good shorts and happy to have them for variety, but I find the Ascents better for me.

    I have two pairs of these I've worn for two months. The pockets are very convenient and the subdivisions in them make it great for carrying around pens, flashlights, etc. The stretch waist is great for comfort.

    My only complaint is that the buttons on these pants pop off fairly easily. Both pairs I've ordered had the buttons come off. I'll see them back on, but I wish they were more durable.

    Outstanding product.
    Material stretches with me as I move so I never feel binded. The 2 front pockets for phones and/or flash lights are also nice and roomy. I keep my iPhone 7 Plus there and it fits with maybe 1/2 inch sticking out. And I was pleasantly surprised, when I sit down it moves out of the way. The slash front pockets have an area for knife/flash lights clips built in so the pockets last longer and carrying a knife or flash light or keys there (or anything with a built in clip) is more comfortable. The cargo pockets have built in pockets for AR magazines but it’s not too much of a problem to move them out of the way to put my wallet or other items in.
    The only issue I have with these shorts is I feel like they simply make them from the pants and I like my shorts a little roomier in the legs but even that wasn’t enough to make me not give it 5 stars. If you like this style of pants or shorts you will LOVE these!

    I like them. They are tough...the polyester/cotton ripstop material should endure. They have a quality metal button in which I reinforced it with additional stitching and they included an extra button. The zipper is a quality zipper, but wish they also had a button closure over the zipper. I also wish they had button pockets instead of velcro. They are quality and you can see it.

    Overall Quality Good - However the Leg Opening as SMALL & thus Tight. I'd have sent them back, but didn't try them on until after my return window passed. My fault on that. However be aware that these shorts are SMALL & TIGHT in the legs and restrict your movement.

    Great comfort & fit. Love all the pockets for my work needs. They hold up well and have a utilitarian design. Best I’ve found for my needs and now the primary work short in my wardrobe.

    I was hesitant to buy such expensive shorts but I went ahead anyway because the features it had were not found by other brands [at least sold within Canada] for my intended use for them. The quality is good, no annoying loose stitching or thin material. There are plenty of pockets to stuff whatever you need for them. The main seller for me are the two small pockets that are just below the belt loops. They fit perfectly for my Google Pixel 3 WITH an Otterbox case nicely [the tip of the case just peaks out]. Now if you have a tablet for a phone then it will be useless. I like shorts to run jut below the knees and these do the job but some of you might like to show a little bit more skin so just throwing it out there if you're concerned about inseam length. My only concern is the zipper do not seem very high quality, so I have no idea if they'll be durable over time but we shall see. Overall I highly recommend these shorts but just wish they were priced way lower but that's how it goes when you live in Canada.

    Exceeded my expectations! Best shorts ever! Amazing pocket/storage options- so user friendly. Two thumbs up!

    Expensive.. but.. Amazing quality
