Ms Lightweight All-Wear Hemp Shorts - 6

January 14, 2023

Great shorts

Awesome piece! Great fit (once you find your size, which may be tough) and super comfortable materials. The pockets are nice and the belt loop is helpful. Just exactly what I wanted from these.

January 14, 2023

large thighs required

I really want to like these shorts more than I do. I'm a small guy, 5ft7in, 120 lbs, so Im always happy to see a 28 available however, the legs on these are HUGE! I saw another review where someone said they look like SpongeBob pants on them and I agree! My legs arent huge, but I cannot imagine someone with a 28in waist having thighs big enoug... Read Moreh to fill the legs of the shorts the way they are shown in the model photos. Ive noticed others say it can depend paid to pair on sizing. I guess Ill just need to focus on leg day and to start filling these pants. Otherwise honestly nice shorts, great fabric, and comfy. Just wish they fit as theyre supposed to, however I just dont see it being physically possible to do so.

Beautiful, durable shorts

I have a HUGE butt, so when I say they run a little small, please keep in mind that these are cut for the Princeton set, but not so slight as to make my pockets gape. Plus, my thighs look really good in them. Winner!

December 29, 2022

looks great, tough fabric, great

looks great, tough fabric, great fit. Really happy I got these and they look so good

Great shorts

Since I got these shorts I can't stop wearing them. Very comfy and lightweight. However, I wouldn't pay full retail price for them. They're an incredible deal when discounted. Highly recommended.

November 9, 2022

Lightweight and bombproof

I've never owned clothing made from hemp. the weight is perfect and construction is bombproof. They are extremely comfortable and true to size. I wish I ordered more.

November 1, 2022

Look, my knees!

Hallelujah, shorts that actually fit like shorts! As a vertically challenged biped, the 6 inch inseam is heaven-sent. The hemp fabric has a nice soft feel and seems durable. I can't yet attest to their longevity, but I look forward to doing the research.

October 18, 2022

Awesome shorts

Love the fabric, the super fast service and the fit. Thanks!

October 2, 2022

Versatile & comfortable

This is my 2nd pair of these shorts. I love the fit and length, especially since these are men's. These can be dressed up or down and are ultra comfortable. They do wrinkle with wear due to the type of fabric they are. After steaming, throwing in a dryer or washing they go back to original fit.

September 26, 2022

Super Comfortable but runs small

These shorts are extremely comfortable. I feel like I'm wearing boxer shorts. They run small though. I typically wear a 36 inch waist and had to exchange for a 38.

September 22, 2022

True shorts

Great fabric, super durable, and the perfect length. I think the best way to describe these are tastefully short-shorts.

September 21, 2022

Well made, very light, yet

Well made, very light, yet sturdy and very comfortable. Bought two pairs.

September 16, 2022

Perfect everyday shorts

This particular review is for my 18 year old son, but I also bought these for my 15 year old son and my husband. They are now everyones favorite shorts! I highly recommend them!

When it's hot and humid, way better than heavy cotton

Minimal and slim. Great item. Better for salt water environment and humidity than heavier cotton shorts. Would prefer not to have the brand label on front thigh.

September 13, 2022

Soft and Comfortable

These short shorts are super comfortable and very lightweight. I got them with a trip to Thailand in mind because of the inseam, cut and material. I've worn them a bunch and I am happy with how they fit overall and again the material feels great and is very lightweight.

September 11, 2022

Pretty good

I still remember the old "stand up" shorts Patagonia made. The material was like canvas and they took a few washes to really wear in. But thy lasted forever and were really fun to wear. Lets say you are changing a tire on a gravel road. You could sit down on the gravel and be fine. These new hemp pants are OK but very thin and lightweigh... Read Moret. Guess this is the new normal.

September 11, 2022

Soft & comfortable.

Incredibly light, airy, and comfortable shorts. Pockets are of average size for this kind of short and are OK for carrying your phone, wallet, keys, etc.

September 10, 2022

Decent short but...

Nice shorts, comfortable, look OK, but they're a tad wide around the thigh and bottom "cuffs," i.e., they have a mildly "Sponge Bob" look and feel. They could definitely be tighter or trimmer around the lower aspects of leg openings.

September 9, 2022

Color is Off

I ordered the gray-blue color and it's a bit off from what it looks like online. It's more "shinier" in color, if that makes sense. I've also always worn 28 waist my entire life and these are a touch tight, whereas that sizing is usually a bit large for me - never snug like these. Love the versatility of them - nicer dres... Read Mores shorts and casual too.

September 6, 2022

Perfect for what I needed

These shorts are great! I needed some casual shorts to wear around the house. I had worn out my other shorts and searched high and low for shorts with a 6 inch inseam. Most other retailers were not making them anymore but Patagonia was. Liking all other Patagonia products I owned, I ordered two pairs figure I would like them. Turns out, I like them... Read More so much that I hardly ever take them off. I will definitely buy more!

favorite shorts ever

fabric is durable, fits tight with athletic build, which I prefer

August 22, 2022

Amazing casual shorts!

Amazing casual shorts! Its August and hot here in Santa Monica, California ..these shorts are Cool!

August 21, 2022

Comfy and breathable!

I bought these shorts for my boyfriend and he loves them to death! They are super comfy, breathable, and stretch and move with how you move. I am tempted to buy him another pair! Would highly recommend.

August 15, 2022

Short, Shorts that are Oh-so Comfortable

I was suggested the hemp, double layered kneed work pants by a friend and saw these shorts as a suggestion. I saw the short inseam and thought, I need those. Most shorts are too long and I can get hot easily, so these shorts seemed the right fit (no pun intended). Once they arrives I put them in and didn't take them off for a week. All day wea... Read Morering shorts, keeping me cool and comfortable! Ill be ordering another couple in the coming weeks.

August 13, 2022


I like the shorter length. Very casual, lightweight-just perfect.

August 11, 2022

Well made and comfy

Bought these for my son. He loved them so much I bought two more pairs. They are soft, comfortable and with enough stretch in them to be active but present like a dressy short. Highly recommend

August 7, 2022

Great shorts and fabric

I like these shirts a lot. They fit great, and excellently short, and are comfortable. I would like the fabric to stretch a little more than these for added comfort while being active.

August 3, 2022

Great fit, durable and comfortable.

Really enjoyed the shorts. They fit really well and Im using them for both everyday and hiking.

August 1, 2022

Everyday beaters

They are really light weight and breathable, only downside is the gray and khaki color sweat through kind of easily and show up really clearly

July 20, 2022

AWesome shorts

Bought these for vacation, and they were perfect for multiple days of wear in a row with lots of walking. Lightweight.

July 16, 2022

Nice cut

I'm on my he shorter side so I can't wear shorts with too much length, the length is a great happy medium. I don't wear shorts shorts.

July 12, 2022

Great shorts

Really enjoying these shorts. Was worried about the inseam being too short but they fit great. Comfortable & can be worn with t-shirts and polos.

July 5, 2022

One short to rule them all

Fell in love with my first pair. Now I own them in every color and plan on freeing my closet from all lesser shorts. Comfortable both on the trail and in town. Dries quickly when wet. While I haven't run in them, or taken them on the river, I feel they would perform just fine.

July 2, 2022


The Lightweight All-Wear hemp short was everything that I had been searching for. I'm constantly outside and this is the most universal and comfortable short I've owned. I even golf in these shorts because of their comfort and breathability. I wear a 34 waist in some styles but the 36 was a great fit especially if you plan on tucking in y... Read Moreour shirt. I like my shorts a little bit shorter and the 6in inseam was perfect. Purchased these a few weeks ago and now I'm back ordering more!

June 27, 2022

Light Weight. Good fit.

The shorts are light weight and extremely comfortable. The 6" inseam is good for shorter people.

June 22, 2022

Logo/Tag too large

Shorts are great, but the logo/tag makes it so I can't wear these many places (work events, dressy casual family events, etc.). The logo on these is too obtrusive. It's hard to find a pair of decent looking casual but not rugged 7" shorts. I love your brand because they are made so well and last a long time.

June 21, 2022

Daisy Dukes for dudes

These shorts are near perfect with one major flaw: the front pockets. The front pockets are so long they extend beyond the hem of the short. I find myself changing my "pocket habits" (get yr mind outta the gutter) when I where these shorts. I only use the rear pockets as the gravitational pull on any object placed in the front pockets (ke... Read Moreys, wallet, dog treats, you name it... ) will pull the pocket down my leg and cause the shorts themselves to ride up. I don't consider myself fashionable, but this is definitely not the look I'm going for. Otherwise, these shorts are amazing! The fit is fantastic and the fabric is very comfortable. I'm planning to take these to a tailor to get the pockets taken in, but would like to see later iterations solve this problem for me.

Short shorts

Nice style but too short for my liking. Ordered 36 which has been my size (though lately I wish there was a 37).

Great length shorts for my height

Great length shorts for my height. There's very little given in the waist, so make sure to get the right waist.

Amazing shorts; ~3 year lifespan

Getting to the end of year 3 on my second pair of these. I love these shorts. The are soft and incredibly comfortable, and the right length for my sensibilities. With three inseam options, I imagine most can find the right length for them. These aren't bulletproof. In my experience, the crotch really blows out at around 3 years of use, as we... Read Morell as the button (which can be easily fixed with a needle and thread and little skill). This has happened for both pairs. I wear these often biking around town, so they may last shorter or longer depending on how much of that you do. I'll likely grab another pair soon.

Perfect for Hawaii daily use

I live in Kauai and wear shorts daily. These are well made and very cool and confutable.. Perfect for this humid weather.

May 14, 2022

Delicate Wonder

The fit, color, style, etc. of these shorts is awesome. But, after wearing almost daily for ~3 weeks, the hem has split, there is one large hole that simply seems to be from wearing through, and other spots are threadbare and threatening to break through. Not really repairable. Purchase only if you plan on only strolling about town and doing some l... Read Moreight sitting. An admirable endeavor, but not a practical material.

Thank you for sharing this feedback, Kirk. That should definitely not be happening. We're so sorry this pair of shorts isn't holding up as it should! We see that you're exchanging them for another pair. Please let us know if we can help with that exchange or a return.

Too much crotch / inseam too long

Hi, I love Patagonia. These shorts, less so. Basically, the inseam (or is the correct term "rise") just seemed too long. It's a subjective thing but I'm looking for a fit that isn't quite as boxy. Boxy feels like something my dad would wear. I'm on a skinny-side so that may be the reason I feel this way about these sho...

Thank you for this feedback, Christopher. We're sorry the fit of these shorts didn't work for you, but happy to see you've been able to return them. Please let us know if we can be of any help in finding a pair that will work better for you!

April 11, 2022

Baggies they are not.

Great for any outdoor activity. Hiking, beach, golf, biking. Slim fit reduces slide down, side flap and thigh drag when running. Nice, cool hemp fabric. I bought three pair.

April 10, 2022

runs very big

The waist on the size 38 shorts that we received measure 40.5". I will try sizing down to a 36 in hopes of getting an appropriate fit.

Response from Patagonia
April 12, 2022

Hey Rosemary, thank you for the feedback. You're correct that the waist on these is a couple inches bigger because they are mid-rise rather than high-waisted, so they won't sit on your actual waist. If you'd like to exchange out for a smaller size, the process is very easy and can be started [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).

April 9, 2022

I'll never wear other shorts

I've been looking for these shorts for the whole of my adult life. They're amazing. Lightweight, comfortable, right length (a few inches above the knee). Just the best.

Lightweight All-Wear 6 Hemp Shorts

I love my Patagonia Hemp Shorts. They are lightweight, comfortable and fit perfectly. My first choice was the Stand Up Shorts but they never seem to be in stock. My original pair of Stand Up Shorts lasted over 15 years and I need to replace them. While I like my new Hemp Shorts, I doubt that theyll hold up for 15 years of wear.

November 6, 2021

Best Short Ever

I have 2 pairs of this short and will likely buy another!

October 27, 2021

Simply and rugged

I initially ordered 1 and had to get another. The design is simply and the material is perfect for Hot Florida weather. I sweat a bit and the shorts dry very quickly. The shorts are very rugged. I shoot video run and gun and I'm at times on the ground looking at angles etc. They've been stained but every time I wash them they clean up ver... Read Morey well. The only thing I don't like is they wrinkle slightly if you don't take them out of the dryer immediately. I highly recommend these shorts.

October 8, 2021

Super comfy

I have shorts, shirts and a sweatshirt. I love this company

September 27, 2021

A Good Pair of Shorts

Solid Shorts made of a lightweight yet sturdy material. Breathes well and dries quickly, wosh they sold them with a small inseam to have a true bootylicious but the 6" will have to do.

September 27, 2021

Great pair of shorts!

This pair of shorts are perfect for relaxed, everyday wear.

Love the design and fabric

Living in Florida, I perspire a lot. The material is light and very breathable. Excellent Shorts.

September 2, 2021

Sturdy & comfortable

Initially purchased a 34 and found the size to be a little snug (though honestly I appreciate the lack of stretch; I was in the market for shorts that could stand the test of time, and any with elastics got stretched out of shape very quickly).

So soft

The shorts are incredibly comfortable and soft. They are a perfect length and the color options are great The only two complaints I have is that the item shipped in a plastic bag.

I first saw these at an REI garage sale. Instantly drawn to them. The ones I saw were ripped so I went in search for them on the Patagonia website.

Overall perfect but wrinkle to easily

Overall I really like these shorts, they are the perfect length and are very lightweight. However, the one downfall is these shorts will wrinkle extremely easily.

Great summer short

The fabric of these shorts is really nice. Soft and lightweight - good combination for hot weather. Also, the color on the website is consistent with the short. Really interesting shade of blue.

July 17, 2021

look great

fit is great. looks are great. very flattering. a little pricey. but i rather pay a bit more and get exactly what i want.

July 16, 2021

Shorts should be short...

...not baggy pedal pushers! Light weight, extremely comfortable, and 6" inseam.

July 13, 2021

The shorter 6" are perfect!

I thought I'd try the shorter 6" after buying a longer pair, they're perfect. The colors are great this summer, a fun short that is sure to last many future BBQs, beach trips, and days around town!

July 12, 2021

Impeccable Design and Looks

My fault, but buying on line is hard. I ordered a 35-inch waist and should have gone with a 33. It's best to try on in a store if you can. I can't because I live in a remote area and it's difficult to travel distances to buy stuff.

Great fit and material is very cool. The light-colored short is almost white.

Amazing fabric

I have been a stand-up shorts fan for years and like them especially well when they age and soften.

Great Fit and Style, Terrible Durability

I love these shorts for their length and their fit. But I've probably gone through about 4 pairs in the past two years. They look great and feel great, but are light in material and far from durable. I bought my newest pair about two weeks ago. I already have a tear on the pocket.

Hi Austin, we're so sorry to hear about the troubles with the Men's Lightweight All-Wear Hemp Shorts - 6". We 'd be happy to help out with a return or exchange and you can begin that here, https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html.

July 6, 2021

Great short, long pockets

Bought these shorts for casual wear, around the yard and bike rides around town. Very comfortable and breathable. only downside is when riding a bike with phone in pocket, you can see the pocket hanging out of the bottom of your shorts. Not a deal breaker, just not the classiest look. Still bought another pair because i enjoy the fit.

July 4, 2021

Too thin and wrinkly

These shorts are so thin they just feel cheap. Even if you throw them briefly in the dryer or iron them they are extremely wrinkly within a few minutes of wear. They dont live up to typical Patagonia quality in my opinion. These dont feel like they were made to last.

Response from Patagonia
July 12, 2021

Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to hear that the shorts did not meat your expectations. They are made from Hemp fabric blend, so they will certainly have a different and more soft feel then most other shorts.

Extremely comfortable

I bought these because they dont hang down past my knees, which allows for freedom of movement. They are comfortable, lightweight, look good which makes them perfect for the midwest humidity. You can wear for everyday or for going out at night, pockets are deep enough to carry keys, wallet and phone comfortably.

June 28, 2021

Perfect Short!

I love these shorts! They're surprisingly light and cool and the perfect length that hits mid-thigh. I usually wear these for casual wear, but if I find myself on a hike they work great. Love them! My only criticism is that I would like the option to have these without the label, but that's just my personal preference.

June 24, 2021

nice and cool

disappointed that fabric wrinkles so easily, otherwise great

June 20, 2021

Not great for muscular legs

Quality product but if you have any leg muscle at all, they run tight through the thigh. Theyre right in the gray area to keep vs return and might try a bigger size. Quality product but maybe get a size up if you have athletic/muscular thighs

High quality material

High quality material. Like the length. Offer more colors and Id buy them. Some of the best shorts I own and have recommended them to several friends.

Real Shorts Are Back!

I love these shorts for many reasons. The main one is that they look and feel like real shorts did back in the 1980s through the 1990s.

These shorts help me not only move easier, but they show off my legs. I personally think all men's shorts should be around 6" to 8" inseam, anything else is way too long! I own 4 pairs of these shorts, because I love them so much. Great product!

June 10, 2021

Good length, runs slightly big

I purchased two pairs, one 38 and the other 30. The 28 was too tight around the waist while the 30 was slightly big. Realistically I'm a 29 but not many companies carry that size and therefore a belt took care of the issue. Fyi go slightly bigger rather than smaller and have to exchange the shorts.

June 7, 2021

No curves allowed

As with nearly every pair of bottoms from Patagonia, these fit extremely narrow through the hips.

Shorts that won't snag on my knee.

Most the shorts I've bought in the past go below my knee even though they're labeled XS or SM. Not these shorts. These fit me well and won't snag on my knee when I lunge or squat.

Awesome, but fly cover will fold back and the logo is placed in a way that is more prominent than other shorts. Would prefer it be at the waistline like the other shorts

These shorts look nicer in person than they do on the website (mostly because the color looks richer in person), and the hemp manages to both feel sturdy and durable, yet also comfortable.

Much smaller than comparable brands, but since I was able to exchange it no problem I am quite happy with these shorts. They show some leg.

April 23, 2021

They're awesome!

These shorts are fantastic, and I can tell they'll last a long time. Super light and comfortable.

Inconsistent sizing

I really like these shorts. The material is great. Subtle branding patch on left side. The 6 inseam hits just right. Only if it came in more colors. I bought the pigeon blue one in a size 33. So I bought the gray one in a 33. It was way tooo small. You can improve the leg opening diameter. It runs large.

April 15, 2021

Check the size before you order

I was wearing a size 35 Patagonia hemp short from a few years back when I ordered these, but these didn't fit. The older ones measure 19" across the waist line, I expected these to be the same. These measure 18" across or = to 36" at the waist. I returned them for 38" to accommodate my post pandemic profile.

Great shorts

I was looking for a pair of casual light weight shorts that are not down to my knees. These are perfect. Not the heavy stand up shorts, which are great for hiking and working outside, but rather thick for hot weather walking around. Well made and more dressy. Good price. Would buy again.

Nice Lightweight Shorts

These shorts are excellent for hot weather: breathable and quick-dry. I own several pairs and all have survived fair wear and tear.

April 3, 2021

Light, rugged

I have wear three types of shorts; baggies, stand-up shorts and these. I walk/hike in them and wear them as general all around shorts. They are tougher than cotton of a similar with and ventilate really well. I have probably 6 pairs and have been wearing them for years. The button seems to fall off of all of them after a certain amount of time. Thi... Read Mores hasn't happened to my stand-up shorts. Also, I would prefer they remove the logo. If these were cut (pockets, etc) like stand-up shorts they would be even more awesome.

Love the fabric and fit!

I love this fabric! It feels like the perfect balance of matching weight with durability. The shorts fit as expected and I appreciate the 6" inseam option because most similar shorts are longer than I like. These will be my go to casual shorts this summer!

March 27, 2021

runs small

Nice quality, but can't get away with wearing them even if i wanted to. I had bought 3 pairs of pants from patagonia, and had a goldilocks experience, this one was an inch too small.

March 26, 2021

Lightweight for sure!

I am a stand-up shorts guy all the way, but I wanted something that was a little cooler for the summer months. These are great! very breathable, and they also have a little stretch to them as well.

March 25, 2021

Very light and breathable

I'm 6'0" and weigh 240lbs, these fit perfectly and are ideal for my local 95°F weather. They also have a very flexible crotch area so no more ripped pants when crouching or climbing up something.

March 23, 2021

Why move the logo?

Whose idea was it to move the logo from the back waistband to the front leg? I can wear shorts to work as long as they don't have a logo. I guess it's the seam ripper for me if I have to replace the ones I have. Kind of a silly change to make for no real reason. They looked nice without the logo so plainly visible.

Comfortable and stylish

These are super thin and comfortable. They look good with every shirt I own, button up or casual.

January 20, 2021


I ordered these shorts for my son. He needed a smaller size but you all have not had smaller sizes in over a year

January 8, 2021

Great fit

Great garment the only critical comment I have is I thought I was purchasing the heavier canvas like fabric. I think your catalogs should have been more detail oriented.

December 31, 2020


Grandson loves them!

December 31, 2020

3 pair purchased

I just purchased a third pair of these shorts for my husband because he loves them so much! He does a lot of physical work and he loves the fit!

Probably Buying More Soon

My husband has always had a hard time finding shorts that fit comfortably. I decided to buy the lightweight hemp shorts for him for his birthday, just to see if they were any different than traditional work shorts . They fit so well for his body type in size and comfort I immediately bought another pair. I was also surprised how fast they were deli... Read Morevered. My only wish is that, after washing them, they were a little more wrinkle free. We hope you never discontinue this line.

Great shorts. Wish they came in a 7 inch inseam.

Its nice! I have ever color in these hemp shorts. But the white ones are absolutely see through!:( disappointing. And every one of these wrinkles like crazy!!!

Lightweight short. Flimsy

Need extra heavyweight thick high % hemp , 50% - organic cotton blend scrubbed and softened fabric (indestructible) short length short.

Excellent, comfortable I would prefer thicker material. Belt loops could be bigger. THX Robert

great color

A very light perfect short for being active in or lounging.

My husband loves them. TTS and very comfortable. Perfect length for his stature.

Very Comfortable

Perfect length, perfect weight, interesting color, all this and nice price.

September 2, 2020

Versatile and light

These shorts are very functional in the sense that you can be comfortable wearing them during many activities. Theyre lighter than the standup shorts, although they dont have as much thigh clearance as the stand up shorts (although, still enough for someone with thicker thighs). My main gripe about them is that they wrinkle very easily after maybe ... Read Morea days use. Overall, love them and if you dont mind wrinkly shorts youll love these even more than me.

September 1, 2020

Excellent shorts

Just buy a pair of these. I replaced a bunch of old, non-Patagonia shorts with these and 5" baggies and I couldn't be happier. My legs are free at last! Most importantly, my wife thinks they show off my legs so your wife / girlfriend / partner will probably like them too.

September 1, 2020

Very comfortable!

These shorts are really great. They fit perfectly. The fabric is lightweight and perfect for summer.

August 19, 2020

Too snug

Im a size 32 in Levis jeans, so I went with the same size when I ordered these shorts. The material is great- airy, comfortable, and has room for a lot of movement. Unfortunately the fit around my thighs and butt was too tight so I had to return them. Going to size up to a 34 to see if thats a better fit around my legs.

August 5, 2020

Not a fan

Love Patagonia products and these are a true fit. But the material is too thin for my liking. A wrinkle bomb within minutes.

Hi DJ, thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us and we're sorry that these ended up being too thin. Please feel free to [return them](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) for a refund.

Best Shorts Ever

Really dig these shorts. They fit true to size, and the length is perfect for hot summer days. The hemp fabric is comfortable and light. Dont want to take them off. What else I can say-solid purchase.

July 26, 2020

Fits until you wash them

Perfect shorts out of the box. Loved them. Perfect fit until you wash them. Easily shinks from 33 to 32 or even 31 after 2 washings. Buy up 1-2 sizes. Cant wear the 2 pairs I bought.

August 26, 2020

We are so sorry to hear this. Please feel free to reach out to us and we are happy to see what we can do to [help](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) with this. As long as the washing instructions were followed, they should not have shrunk significantly so we are happy to get you taken care of.

Like Formal Baggies

I was looking for another pair of baggies but I needed something that had a bit more substance to them, something that I could wear out in public and feel good about it. Then I came across the all-wear shorts. The 6" inseam is fashionable and the color is unique (Spanish red) so they aren't boring. They're more versatile than baggies... Read More because I can still wear these when I'm doing anything outdoors without overheating, but I can don them in a more formal setting and won't feel scrubby. I'd even sport these to a wedding if the temperature was right. I bought them at the beginning of the Arizona summer and haven't worn much else since, if these aren't on my body, they're in the wash or I'm sleeping.

July 22, 2020


I typically like my shorts a little shorter, and these are perfect. In my efforts to find the perfect pair of shorts, these may be it! I feel like shorts are either too long, dont fit true to size, too thick, weird pockets, etc... but these are none of those bad things. So lightweight and breathable. Fit perfect. And so comfy.

Short but comfy

These shorts are kind of short, but they are very light lightweight and comfortable.

July 15, 2020

Remember the guys with the big thighs!

Great lightweight shorts! The hemp blend makes them strong but very breathable. Yeah the fabric is a little wrinkly, but it's summertime casual wear. My one caveat is they could use just a smidge more room in the seat, thighs and legs. Dudes who aren't skipping leg day might not find these as roomy and comfy as the Stand Up shorts.

Comfort + durability

Love the hemp! Comfortable and durable.

Great Material

Everyday shorts

Great shorts. I got the Spanish red color, 6 inch inseam. Hits above the knee without being too short. Fabric is nice, could be dressed up a little more or just worn casually.

Buttery Soft

These shorts are so buttery soft and comfortable. They are my new favorite shorts! The material is so very soft and the pockets are the perfect depth for keeping your phone and keys from falling out.

I highly recommend these for anyone that wants some shorts that can do it all. The only drawback I can think of is that they come out of the wash very wrinkly and I need to iron them before wearing them every time. But other than that, I give them 10/10.

Fits well looks good

Very happy with product

July 13, 2020

I've been wearing the stand up shorts for 30 years and for what ever reason the size and me don't jive. I tried the light weight bingo size and me work . Size 34 perfect fit and they feel and look good.

So summery
