Rated 5 out of 5 by wayner perfect shorts
I love these shorts. They are my go to shorts for swimming and kayak fishing. Durable and true to size. They look great on me (even with my bird legs).

Rated 4 out of 5 by gaileee Great shorts, colors not so good
We've been waiting for these shorts to get back in stock in my mate's size. He loves these shorts and got two pair last year when the color choices were quite good. This year's colors are rather ugly and I wish LLBean would offer earth tones for men's & women's clothing. I find the colors to be too bright and that's a turn-off.

Nice pair of lined quick drying swim trunks . I found them a little thin for causal wear , but they are perfect for a day at the beach or lake .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goodhue Best shorts around!
I live in shorts when the temperature gets above 65 degrees and the LL BEAN Supplex Cargo Shorts are far and away the best I've found! For a number of years I'd worn the BEAN 6" Supplex Cargo Shorts daily during the summer,then a few years ago the 10" Cargo shorts were offered by BEAN.I bought several pairs in large and the extra length expanded the "shorts-wearing season" to include Spring and Autumn. I wear them for tennis,hiking in the Green Mountains of Vermont,and when I'm out and about locally.The cargo pockets provide plenty of room for my wallet,car keys,my camera,and any other small items I may need. The supplex material makes the shorts very light weight and allows them to dry quickly when they get wet. I still use my 6" Supplex Cargo shorts for swimming,but the 10" shorts work nicely in a pinch. About 2 years ago I dropped about 20 pounds and did not hesitate to replace my 6 pairs of "Large" with 6 pairs of "Medium". (Since I wear them almost daily having 6 pairs allows me to mix and match colors with tees,golf shirts,and tank-tops. They're light weight and easy to pack when on vacation too. I highly recommend these shorts to anyone looking for value,comfort,and versatility!

Rated 5 out of 5 by tspolack Best LL Bean Product at this time
I have 4 pair of these! I wear them to the gym every week, the mess liner never wears out, the elastic waste band does not deteriorate and the material is tough as nails. I have owned them for 3 plus yrs. These are the quality of clothing that made LL Bean famous.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AKKTOGO Love the shorts...
.. but not the reviews. Based on reviews, which said it ran large, I bought a size smaller than what we normally get. Wrong! Way too small. Had to send them back and hope they have the sizes in the colors we originally ordered.
But the shorts are more like swimwear. real comfy and great for traveling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lookingyoung sizing is a bit off
I bought my husband 2 pairs of these shorts. He loves them, however, they do run a little big.........my husband is a medium a 32 inch waist. I looked at the reviews before I bought these shorts and I'm glad I did. I bought the small which fits perfect. I actually compared the waist with a medium swim suit from ll bean to these small cargo shorts and they are the same width. Hope this helps.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sorryboots Sizing Has Changed Apparently
I have quite a few Supplex Cargo Shorts, 6" inseam order over the years. I've never been disappointed with them. I've always ordered the Medium, which is standard fair for me. With this current production run, LLB has either changed the sizing, or, I've got a Large with a Medium label. I was surprised to see how HUGE they were when I took them out of the bag. I tried them on, and found that the elastic waistband just barely #and I do mean barely# holds them onto my waist. If I were to walk in them, they would surely fall right down! However, by cinching the drawstring as far as it will go, I do believe they will stay up. Aside from the waist sizing issue, they are extremely roomy and baggy, but since that seems to be the fit these days with the younger crowd, I guess I won't look too out of place. My advice: If you are an in-between size, like I am #not really a small but not quite a medium#, you might want to consider down sizing. Other than that, be prepared to send them back if you do find them too large, which seems quite possible with these.
