Great cargo shorts.
This is my fifth pair of these shorts. I pretty much live in them. They wear well and the multitude of pockets make them very versatile.

The fit has changed. Now I have to pay return shipping
I have enjoyed three pairs of these shorts for several years. They all fit great, and I loved them. These new Ones are cut/sewn differently and are way to tight in the hips. Very disappointing. Now I have to pay return shipping.

Do these shorts have any flex to them? I recently went to a pair of ripstop pants and feel like I can't move my legs more than enough to walk and have to pull them up to squat or move my legs in any real fashion, and I hate them. I want to make sure my next pair of shorts accommodates every-day movements.
Mark B on May 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am very disappointed in these shorts. There is no flexibility and the seat is tight. Fine when you are on your feet but terrible sitting.
