    Purchased for my husband for our Summer holidays. Not yet worn, but look to be really good quality product. Would be very happy to recommend just on looking at the product manufacture.

    These pants are very comfortable to wear. The color is very unique, the sewing is very well done - no cutting corners - and I love all the pockets.

    I still haven't found all 14 pockets... - 12/21/2014

    ...but then, I'm sure that they're there! Unbelievably comfortable, particularly in warmer climates, this is a "do everything" pair of shorts. Although I ordered a larger waist size that I normally wear, the snaps on each side made a good tightness, even without a belt. They make excellent travel shorts as well as lounging shorts. Highly recommended.

    Very pleased with soft but durable material. Very well made and an excellent fit. Washes well and easy to iron. Thigh is a little baggy for me but otherwise delighted. Would buy again.

    They're not the cheapest but they are definitely the best I've worn by a long way

    Expedition Shorts - 10/13/2014
    By: from Carbondale, IL

    These shorts are well constructed. I wore them while touring the Gettysburg battlefield and appreciated the capacity afforded by the many pockets. They are a bit overpriced and the shipping is outrageously high but, what the hey, the tag says Orvis!

    A lot of pockets - 10/11/2014
    By: from Bevercreek, Ohio

    There are so many pockets that I forget which pocket I put things. One of my snaps broke and had the shorts replaced without problems.
