Inconsistent Sizing
Bought 3 pair off Zappos all 38 waist. Tried them on 1st pair-perfect fit, 2nd pair- little tight, 3rd pair- couldn't button. All 3 had 38x11 sticker down leg & size 38 on inside label. Took fabric tape to measure actual waist length. 42", 43" & 44" measurements. I really like the shorts themselves but inconsistent in sizing. Can only wear 2 of 3 pair at the moment.

Best in their class!
Surpassed my highest hopes. Rugged, well-designed, tough and well-sewn fabric. Suitable for most demanding backpacking and warm-weather outdoor work. No other cargo shorts can compete with these.

Good product. Would recommend.
Great shorts. Perfect for my line of work. Heavy duty so can be a little hot in very warm weather.

Waist size is off
As many others have noted, the fit in the waist is 1.5-2" smaller than advertised. Just got around to wearing these.

Both pairs fit the same.

Aside from that, they are great!
Lots of storage in the pockets, and seem to be very durable.
