These tick all the important boxes for me. Comfortable waistband: keeps the shorts up no problem in varied activities. 5-way stretch, comfortable as all get out. Great in hot weather. Didn’t bunch up in my crotch on a few 8+ mile hikes. These shorts loved going for a impromptu creek swim, and dried out insanely fast. Oh, and they look good.
Just got these and tried em out on a backpacking trip to the Lost Coast. They were perfect. Fantastic comfort and fit, lightweight, and the material feels durable. Solid waist band, also - no issues keeping them on with full pockets. I'm 6'2" 175lbs with a 32" waist and the medium fits great. These quickly turned into my go-to shorts. Wore them with the Volo pants and my trusty old Black Spider and was good to go.
