        Comments about Russell Athletic Two Pocket Short - Men's:

        It's really hard to find women's shorts that fit my 40-something-year-old body, are made of cotton, are long enough, and have pockets, but that's what this is.
        I don't like a fit that is snug as many other shorts are. These are looser, but not baggy on me.
        They go down about halfway down to my knees.
        I like that they have pockets. The pockets are fairly deep so I did not worry about things falling out.

        The only negative about the pockets is that they use part of the shorts for one side of the pocket. They are not separate from the shorts, the way most pockets are made. This means that while I am wearing them I cannot invert them and pull the pockets out.

                    The new 8 inch length is a little too long for us short folks. Would prefer a length no longer than 7 inches. Other than that I am pleased with the wear and durability of these shorts.

                            You cant be sure because we don't know whether any particular size or color at any particular time will be made of 100% cotton or a blend of cotton and poly. It is a random mix.
