Shorts
Ordered 3 pair and they all fit great. One pair had a zipper that was very hard to operate. I will probably send back for an exchange. I also have the pants so I know they are good quality.

Love the fabric
Fit as expected, the fabric protection is great! Had my dog get mud on the grey shorts, a simple wet paper cloth took it all off w/ no residual stain.

Excellent Cargo Shorts
These are my favorite cargo shorts. I own two pairs at the moment. They feel very high quality and you can tell they're durable as soon as you touch them. Look pretty good too. Wear them casually and while doing work around the homestead, love that I can use them for both. Also like how the pocket flaps stay nice and flush with the shorts, even after washing them many times. It's a very nice touch. If you're on the hunt for some cargo shorts that will last you a long time, these are the ones to buy!

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.
Will you ever offer these Tappen shorts in waist size 48 or 50?
A shopper on Apr 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We have forwarded this as a suggestion to our product team. Unfortunately, we do not currently offer size 48 or 50 in this style.
Do Force Tappen shorts shrink in the wash?
A shopper on Oct 26, 2017
