    Overall, happy with the shorts. Similar fabric to their Voodoo pants. Deeper pockets than the Voodoo and zipper free back pockets. Light weight and does dry quickly. Belt that comes with it serves its purpose, but I eventually tossed it in a drawer in favor of a more solid leather belt. Fit as expected, just above the knee cap and waist was true to size.

    One main gripe - there's one shallow snap at the top and a zipper fly. It does not take much to pop that snap open. Every time I go to take a leak, the button pops. Usually I have a belt on (not the one it came with) and then I'm fumbling to button the snap closed again under my belt. Sounds like such a little thing, but it gets annoying with regular wear. A more heavy duty snap or a button would have been advisable here.

    Minor inconvenience aside, I still recommend them for hiking, camping, etc. Serviceable shorts that are fine on the trail or around town.

    Great shorts. Quality is really good and so is the fit. The material is very durable, comfortable and dries quickly. The belt is removable and seems to be designed to wear with a pack. There are 2 sets of loops....one set is narrow and almost conceals the entire belt. The other set is like a normal set of loops that you can use with just about any belt to about 1.5 inches wide. I use mine as hiking shorts, everyday wear as well as swim trunks. The pockets are like swim suit liners as well. I have a 30 - 31 waist and I got the 32's and they fit fine with use of the belt. I am very pleased with them and will be buying more pairs in different colors.

    Fits well, deep pockets, very lightweight, dried quickly.

    These shorts fit perfectly and move in all the right places. Slight flex in the material means they work great for mtn biking or pretty much any other athletic pursuit in addition to being a good all-around hiking/outdoor short. This is the second AR product I've bought in the past few months (the other was a rain shell) and I have to say I'm really impressed with the quality and fit of these products.

    The Equinox are a little shorter than the Ferosi. I like them both and have both. OR makes great clothing. I'm a 34 waist and the 34 fits perfect.

    These are my favorite shorts... perfect for travel or daily wear. They also make pants that are equally great.

    Bought these for my husband. He lives in them. Very versatile from casual in town to hiking the AT

    Very comfortable. Sharp looking.

    Killer shorts! If only it wasn’t -15 outside but strike while you can been waiting forever for these and in a few months they will be put to work
    Why aren’t they perfect well that would be the colour but hey honestly that’s the only complaint
