I love these shorts.
These are very comfortable to wear...flexible and rugged. They are great for where I work, with enough pockets to carry my normal "pocket stuff", and the electronic devices that I'm assigned at work.

Frustrated
Shorts well made but run small. Used the website questionnaire to determine the correct size and needed to go up a size.
Delivery was fast but had to pay for the return process although their website indicated “free returns.” The catch is you need to have one of their company stores assist with the return, and the closest one to me was several hundred of miles.

Paid to return and purchased A different brand locally. Make sure you go up a size.

Tight in the Hips & Seat
I previously bought the pants version of these shorts, and have been EXTREMELY PLEASED with them - they are a PERFECT work pant. I was excited to see a shorts version of them, but was unfortunately disappointed with the "fit" of these. I'm not sure why the cut would be different - this is essentially the same style as the pants, cut off at the knee - but these shorts are very tight in the hips, seat and crotch making it uncomfortable to bend, sit or squat (the waist is fine, and the comfort fit waist band is great). The material is very high quality, the construction seems to also be very high, and they look great. This pair just doesn't seem to fit me well. Note: I did also purchase the cargo version of these (same size) and they fit GREAT...so maybe I just got a bad pair of this particular style.

Do these come in 12” or 13” inseam?
A shopper on Jun 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This style will have an 11" inseam.
Will there ever be more than just black and grey for color option? Id buy more if they offered blue, khaki, or brown.

BEST ANSWER: We appreciate your feedback and will forward your suggestion to our Product Design Team for future consideration.
