very comfortable to wear

I do miss the lack of rear pockets as I wear them outdoors at work, but I do understand they were designed for hiking not working. Light weight, comfortable and quick drying.

Great travelling shorts

I love the zip pockets and the stretch fabric. They are so comfortable and practical, hard wearing as well. I sometimes use them as swimmers and they dry so quick. Its my second pair the first I damaged wearing them at rough work on the farm. I still use the first pair on the farm.
