      These are very lightweight and dry super quickly. They are perfect for any hot climate and particularly for water sports and boating, kayaking, etc. I love them !

        I've owned several pairs of shorts and I'm impressed that this pair fits just perfect and when I was in the river, my shorts didn't shift. Dried fast while hiking and kept me pretty cool.

          I volunteer once a week with an avian rehabilitator during "baby bird season" (mid march through aug) and have to be outside regardless of the weather. These shorts were comfortable in the heat/humidity and worked well (repelled water/dried quickly) in the rain. I did not need to wear rainpants (which can get too hot for me in the summer), just these shorts and a rain jacket (shell). I wash them every week (delicate cycle) and they are holding up well and keeping their color.

              LOVE these shorts. I do wish they wear about 2" longer but it won't stop me from wearing them and buying more colors. I swim, kayak, go fishing, camping, hang around the house, run errands in them. They are so light that you feel naked, PERFECT!

                  I bought these mainly for hiking but plan on using them for my upcoming rafting trip as well as future camping. It can be challenging to find good sports/athletic wear in plus sizes that are decently priced, fit well, and are flattering and I feel these fit all those requirements. They are comfortable, dry fast, don't show moisture, and I believe they are even nice enough to pass as casual wear during the summer. More pockets would be nice, especially ones with zippers. Overall, I'm very happy with this product.
