Nice Shorts, but stay away from Oceanic!

I already own a pair of these shorts in black, but when I saw the color oceanic online, it looked beautiful - almost like a greenish teal or turquoise. However, I did not like the color when I got it in person. It is actually more green than anything - a very bright, loud green. I would've kept them if they had more blue in the green like teal or turquoise. Or if the color was a little more subtle or darker. Otherwise, these are great pair of shorts - I love the pair I have already and wear them often. They make good beach shorts. Keep in mind they have a buckle on them if you don't mind that extra step in dressing.

Love them!

I bought these for a week long jet ski trip. Paired with a bathing suit top, I just jump into the water. After getting back up on the jet ski, I just stand up and ride, and within 5 minutes they are completely dry. No more sitting in wet shorts for an hour or more.

I bought a pair in a khaki and thought it ran a little big, but could still use it if I tighten up the belt. So I bought a second pair in dark grey color in the next size smaller. It fit perfectly. Love them both!!

Great pair of plus sized water shorts

I bought these mainly for hiking but plan on using them for my upcoming rafting trip as well as future camping. It can be challenging to find good sports/athletic wear in plus sizes that are decently priced, fit well, and are flattering and I feel these fit all those requirements. They are comfortable, dry fast, don't show moisture, and I believe they are even nice enough to pass as casual wear during the summer. More pockets would be nice, especially ones with zippers. Overall, I'm very happy with this product.

Nice Shorts - just what i needed

I volunteer once a week with an avian rehabilitator during "baby bird season" (mid march through aug) and have to be outside regardless of the weather. These shorts were comfortable in the heat/humidity and worked well (repelled water/dried quickly) in the rain. I did not need to wear rainpants (which can get too hot for me in the summer), just these shorts and a rain jacket (shell). I wash them every week (delicate cycle) and they are holding up well and keeping their color.

I would buy these shorts again!

I wore these throughout Belize & Guatemala - in high humidity and no washing machines! I'd handwash 'em late in the evening, and they'd be dry the next morning! I also scrambled through streams and over rocks, and they showed very little wear and tear! Several women in our group lamented not having clothing made out of this fabric, so easy care and quick-drying.

Great shorts at a great price!

I really like these shorts, I had originally purchased another style of shorts but I prefer these. The legs don't ride up and they are comfortable even on the hottest days. They wash well and are dry in minutes. I am very impressed as it has always been hard to find shorts that don't ride up and are comfortable for larger sizes.

I can't wait to wear these this summer. I already think I'm going to buy another pair or two for my trip to the Canadian rockies.

They shorts are lightweight and comfy. Will be great for hiking and water expeditions while camping. I like the extra cargo pockets and the length of the shorts.

Super Super Sper

I bought these shorts for a camping/kayaking trip. They were so light and dried almost immediately. They have nice pockets for storing small items. I am a "big" girl that loves outdoor adventure. It is a struggle to find clothes that fit me that also work well with these activities.

Love them!

Love, love, love these shorts. I purchased 1 pair in hopes the Plus size would be true to size (as most are not.) Got them....took them to the beach! Wanted to wear them all week! When I came home I purchased 2 more pair! Most comfortable shorts I own!

LOVE THEM! More Colors Please!

LOVE these shorts. I do wish they wear about 2" longer but it won't stop me from wearing them and buying more colors. I swim, kayak, go fishing, camping, hang around the house, run errands in them. They are so light that you feel naked, PERFECT!

Negative Reviews:


These shorts have tough material, yet very thin and light. This is generally best for hot weather and those people who don't like to wear heavy material. Waist is comfortable, just as description states. I like the slightly wider waist band, as it doesn't feel rope thin when sitting.
I use them for kayaking, so I wear them under a swimsuit bottom or swim tights.
They are not flattering at all. They have a boxy look to them, where the leg part just hangs down nearly straight from the waist, with no definition to the body, and definitely does not compliment the body. I may alter them to help with this issue. So, for the price, there should be a more feminine look to them vs. buying men's water shorts. For this reason, I do not recommend these shorts to others. I can buy men's water shorts for alot cheaper.
