These shorts are very well made and comfortable. The fabric dries very quickly which makes them ideal for wet wading while fly fishing. It has zippered pocket for storing must not lose items, like the key to your truck or the pocket knife you've carried for decades. These shorts dry out very quickly so you are not spending the whole day in wet shorts after a morning waist deep wade across a stream. There are only two reason I do not give this product 5 stars, and they are personal to me and may not be an issue for most people. First, the fly only has a single button closure. I like a pant with an external button and an internal button with a tab. Second, the back pockets use velcro closures instead of buttons and the zipped back pocket is too narrow and is only on the right side, I carry my wallet in my left back pocket. Maybe switch the velcro pockets to zippers, and the tiny zippered rear pocket to velcro. Overall, this is a terrific procuct.
