    Great Shorts If You Can Sew! - 8/24/2014
    By: from California

    I recently purchased the Foothills Cargo Pants. They were great. Perfect fit. Great feel. Right amount of pockets. And very well constructed. Expected the same with the Foothills Cargo Shorts and was surprised and disappointed to find that each belt loop was sewn on by just 3-4 stitches of very thin easily breakable thread. The gentlest tug on each belt loop ripped the stitches loose. An obvious manufacturer’s defect. Here’s the kicker. To return these and get my money back, the Orvis Return Policy is that they would refund my money but deduct $6.95. So I’d be out nearly $7.00 plus the inconvenience of taking them to a UPS Return Center because of poor quality control at the factory. Instead my wife took the unworn shorts to the dry cleaners where for $8.00 they re-stitched each belt loop. Now I have a great pair of Foothills Cargo Shorts. Perfect fit. Great feel. Right amount of pockets. But be prepared to do some mending before you wear them.

    Best travel shorts on the Market - 8/20/2014

    I bought these shorts because of the zipper pockets to secure my keys, cell phone, wallet and any other items you don`t want to lose. Only a zipper pocket will give you complete peace of mind.

    These are functional shorts With heavy duty zippers on each side. What ever is in there .... Stays there. The other pockets are deep and very well designed. I bought a 2 pair. I am waiting for this same design in pants.

    Great Shorts - 8/15/2014
    By: from north central Pennsylvania

    These shorts fit great. They are true to size. Made of nice material. I like the number and size of the pockets - especially the zippered ones! my wallet and phone stays secure. A little pricey, but I would rather have one satisfying item than two or three that just do not make the grade. Buy these and you will not regret your purchase.

    I purchased these shorts because they looked sharp. Since getting them I have had the opportunity to wear them which has confirmed my opinion. The numerous pockets make them great travel shorts.

    These shorts are typical Orvis quality. Comfortable, lots of pockets, and unique on the trail.

    These shorts are high quality and what you'd expect from Orvis. They are very smart looking at the same time being highly functional. The zippered pockets and trim are attractive and quite useful. Great for travel.
