Rated 5 out of 5 by ranoligra Great Shorts for almost anything
I got these for athletic activity, but they are great for lounging in the house, yardwork, and could probably easily double for a swim suit. One of my favorite features is the zippered back pocket, so I can keep my wallet with me if I want to go somewhere in casual attire. I previously had 2 pair, and just now ordered 2 more (on sale--thanks, LL Bean!). Well made, great fit, durable (so far). Very satisfied.

i purchased these shorts for my husband because i had been looking for something with an elastic waist for him. his other ll bean shorts that button and zip kept falling down without a belt and what was next? suspenders? LOL! these shorts are great, he wears them working in the yard, the garage, around the house. he's lost 13 pounds, the reason his other shorts keep falling down. he is tall, 6'1" but long waisted so these are perfect. i ordered a light color but really wanted the dark blue which is now sold out so i will get the colors which are still available. it's always 'shorts weather' here in south texas! thanks ll bean, i didnt have to run all over town searching for good shorts! :) and these are a dream to wash and dry! great item.

Sure they're good for sports, but they're also great for mowing the lawn, walking the dog, washing the car or cleaning the basement. And they're very low maintenance. Just rinse them in the shower, hang them on the back porch and they'll be ready for another go in about twenty minutes. The zippered back posket is handy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tommy613 Great if you can take the Pill.
Dear LL Bean Friends: The fit is great and I love exercising in them! Today after washing them for the second time (the first time was when they were new) they did pill badly. We order lots from LL Bean and my wife says this is the first time we have had something pill like this from them. Have a good day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marilynnks Light weight and comfortable.
I ordered these to take on a trip to Florida. They were so comfortable and cooler than any other shorts I have. They breath well, are lightweight and dry quickly. These were perfect for the water rides in the parks.
These are listed under men's shorts but we ordered them for ourselves. Some of my friends ordered them, too, after seeing mine.
I can't say enough about how comfortable and perfect they are for the hot, humid summer days.
They are sold out of the Xlarge now but I hope they restock in the future. I would like to buy them in more colors.
There isn't any way you will be unhappy with these shorts. There is a little zipper pocket in the back that is perfect for a driver's license, credit card and cash.

I love the look and light weight of these shorts. The zippered bag pocket is a real plus.

Been wearing these for about a year Have three pair now and wear them everywhere As running shorts they're great side pockets plus a zip rear pocket. No mesh liner so they're more like normal clothes rather than sports gear

Rated 1 out of 5 by wbcc Major disappointment
Upon receiving this item, it all look good at the start - comfortable, good workmanship, nice pockets, nice length etc. However, after the 1st wash, the material pill badly - in fact, one of the worst cases I've seen from LLBean. The material also show other visible signs of wear. I've lightly worn it only once and this was the 1st wash! I am very, very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RidersDad Best Ever
These shorts are exactly what I was hoping for - they are light weight, have a generous inseam, an adjustable waist cord inside, very nice deep pockets, a useful zippered rear pocket. For me, the best feature is the highly elasticized waist band - it is very adjustable and allows for larger, and smaller waist sizes. I was so impressed (and that is not easy) that I went back on-line and ordered 2 more pairs (for a total of 4) today. Get them while they are on sale! I am hoping that they will be easy to launder - not all nylon items are easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LosAngelesChivas Lightweight. Strong pockets. Great for workouts.
These shorts are great for working out. So lightweight.
I was surprised at how strong the pocket seams are.
I have shorts bought at other retail stores where the pockets rip when I store my keys or other objects.
It is a pleasure to jog in these shorts or lounge around the house on a hot day.
