Rated 5 out of 5 by 3beaches great design
Having bought a competitors shorts for years, I was pleased to find these shorts have all the features and more. Many pockets , and 2 of them zip to protect cell phones, a real zipper in front, a belt you can tighten without hanging loosely, and a decent length for anyone over 6 ft. Great for water sports .

Comfortable, lightweight, and good fit. One of the pockets is a bit short but I can live with that.

This summer , I have saved money on active/swim shorts and have been disappointed in the quality received . I paid a bit more for these and am very satisfied in all aspects

Rated 5 out of 5 by Millersart Awesome for kayaking
Love these shorts for kayaking. They dry quickly, have plenty of pockets and even a lanyard in one pocket to clip keys, etc. They look good enough to wear as regular shorts. Cool and comfortable!

Rated 3 out of 5 by PBurgShopper2015 Good, but too long and pockets are too small
These are really good shorts, well made and the fabric is terrifically light and dries quickly. For my taste, they're way too long (I'm 5'-6" and they cover my knees completely), fortunately it was relatively easy to shorten them 3".
The pockets are problematic, the left side pocket is very shallow and my iPhone has fallen out once already when I was sitting down. There is fortunately a zippered pocket on the right side that the phone exactly fits into, but I've always kept my phone in my left pocket because my car keys go into my right pocket.
There is a small zippered horizontal pocket on the front of the left leg, but it's quite shallow and I haven't found it useful. I tried putting my phone in it, but the flat phone didn't follow the curve of my leg, and the opening isn't wide enough to fit the width of the phone.
The right front pocket is great, deep enough for most anything, I wish the left front pocket was as good.
There is one rear pocket, on the right, with a velcro flap. I wish there were two pockets and that they were zippered.
I also wish there was at least one zippered waterproof pocket.
Other than the pockets, the shorts look good. The belt buckle is unusual, but so far it works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaveHE Perfect for the adventurer!!
I rarely write reviews, especially about clothing but,after having purchased my second pair, I wanted to share my thoughts. These swimsuits are the best! As someone who has been in swift waters while whitewater rafting or in crashing waves in the sea, I wanted a tough, durable, belted swimsuit! I have searched many "premier" brands but most with belts are merely belt webbing sewn into the waist band. They will eventually tear out. This is an actual belt that can easily be cinched or loosened and is far more comfortable and durable than a drawstring. And being a belt, things can be attached to it or hung from it. These shorts also are equipped with a snap at the waist band and zippered closure in the front! How convenient and useful!!! There are zippered pockets on the thighs to secure a room key or other valuables. I read a couple of reviews complaining that the pockets were not big enough to hold their cell phones....Hello!!....SWIM suit!! These suits are also extremely comfortable. If I had one recommendation to improve the suit it might be to make the rear, Velcro pockets into zippered pockets too, but this is a small thing. My only request pertaining to this suit is that they would make it available in black. Overall, it's a perfect swimsuit for my needs and the only swimsuit I use when on an adventure!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by llbeanactivesenior Great fit, comfortable
I bought the Swift River Shorts for my husband, and they exceeded my expectations, as well as his! They are well made, nice tapered look with useful pockets and a great fit (not baggy). I would definitely order them again and highly recommend them for swimming, boating or everyday comfortable shorts.

I have purchased two pairs of these pants. With both pairs I have cut out and removed the mesh lining and then sent them to the tailor to change to a 6" inseam. I wish that is the product LLB offered.
