Customer Reviews

Comments: I have had these for less than a year. They are comfortable with functional pockets. I thought the liner was a bit thick to feel "naked", but still very comfortable. I was unhappy with the wear of the fabric. I hand wash routinely. These have seen a washer/dryer maybe 3 times. Within 2 months the fabric started to wrinkled like crepe paper, and now the shorts are distorted to the point they look terrible.
