If you long for the days when shorts were actually short, our new 8” Sandy Cays are for you. Just as tough, cool and light as the original, longer version, the 8-inchers stop above the knee for old-school style and comfort. The quick-drying 3.5-oz 100% nylon taslan fabric with 50+ UPF sun protection takes care of the weight—or lack thereof—and a double fabric layer on the high-wear leg-front zone ensures serious durability. Two mesh-drained slash pockets in the front, two pockets (one drop-in and one zipper) on the back and a bonus drop-in utility pocket on the right thigh provide ample storage. And if you’re packing more gear than the comfy, elastic-back waistband can handle, the belt loops are always there for backup. Inseam is 8”.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love these shorts I have two pairs of these shorts (diff colors), and they have become among my favorites (I am typically a cargo shorts guy). We live in southwestern PA and during the spring & summer, shorts are almost always the way to go. When the temps are climbing, these are good lightweight shorts when I don't want to go with 100% cotton cargo shorts. I just under 6 ft tall and these shorts hit me about mid-knee, which is a length I prefer. I am a 34-inch (plus) waist, and the Large size is about right, not too tight -- it helps to have the elastic waist-band on the back of the shorts. I like deeper pockets (so stuff like cars keys and loose change don't fall out when sitting), the front two pockets are good. There is a small pocket (w/ velcro) in the front on the right leg, my wallet fits in there, which I like. The shorts have two back pockets, one is zippered and the other has a velcro closure, both are roomy. The shorts are made of synthetic material and if they become wet, dry quickly. Should also mention that there are belt loops on the shorts, if that's important.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fit fail The look and quality are fine but I seem to be just the wrong size. I am normally a large or size 36 but the large was too snug. I exchanged the L for XL and they fall right off. I am surprised because the elastic waist should cover a larger range. Maybe the "large" was mislabeled but I am giving up on this style.
