    I got the gray and would buy the tan too but they are out of stock. Classic Orvis quality.

    If you are looking for an extremely comfortable and durable pair of shorts that are flexible enough to go fishing, shopping, work around the house and then go to your local watering hole, then consider these great looking shorts. I bought both colors and basically traveled through Spain this summer in them. Fantastic!

    First I purchased the khaki color. I love these shorts. You cannot go wrong. They are tough, wash well, fit well, and there are pockets galore. I love the phone pocket on the side. I highly recommend you get a pair. You'll be back for more!

    I ordered this for my husband. He is not easy to please but he liked these so much he asked me to order more. Why? The length is perfect. He is 6'4" and the longer length is great. Additionally the lighter weight fabric is good for warm weather.

    These are good shorts for summer walking, hiking or doing stuff around the house. The material as sturdy, Khaki color is good, fit is very good and finish/construction is very good. Lots of pockets for things you need to carry.

    I need a more trim short. These are probably okay for most guys, the style is nice, the material above average. Just a bit baggy in the seat and legs.
