Rated 2 out of 5 by 2506badger Not a fan
These remind me of thin swimming trunks. Weird, stiff, thin material that slips down every time I bend. Need to wear a belt just to keep them up. If I still had all the packing materials and receipts and such, I'd probably send them back... But I'll still wear them this season since I have them. Just not my favorites. Maybe skinnier people can wear them better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WarmNatured Great warm weather shorts.
I am a warm natured guy. These shorts are very light and breathable making them very comfortable to wear when it is muggy.
My only gripe is that the color choices are limited. I would love to be able to get a pair in light tan/bone color if they ever become available.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 2506badger Kind of papery
If you bend over,they slide down. Feel like crepe paper. Wouldn't buy again

Rated 4 out of 5 by HockeyHeather22 Not as lightweight as you think...
I ordered the size XL for an upcoming backpacking trip. The fit is perfect, but they ended up weighing 7.9 oz on my scale at home. I like the material -- it seems pretty rugged -- and the pockets are an added bonus. I just wish they were a little lighter. Also, I wish the material had some stretch to it. My search continues...

Rated 5 out of 5 by BendingBeth Bean's Trail Shorts
Very light weight, good length and easy access pockets. They were very high quality material and feel comfortable when active.

Rated 4 out of 5 by normand802 Nice lightweight shorts.
These shorts are nice and light which is what I wanted when I go to the Philippines this winter. However the pockets are not very deep which I don't like. I believe the pockets could have been made to better accommodate a persons wallet or spare change. The extra material wouldn't have added a great deal to the manufacturing cost. Other than that the shorts are fine. Fit is good and Bean always ships fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanShopperCP The shorts I have been looking for
After lots of searching for a pair of shorts that have the right length and don't require a belt, I finally came across these from LL Bean. They are perfect - good build quality, waist fits snugly with the elastic, and the length is just right (sits just above the knee). Everything about these shorts is indicative of their quality, from the buttons which are very solid, to the zipper pull which is covered with a rubber handle. I will be buying more of these same shorts in other colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KeepActive Lightweight, roomy, lots of pockets, well-made.
I am a woman and I bought these for the room, the lightweight non-spandex material, and all the pockets. I don't like woman's shorts. They are too tight; no pockets or incredibly small pockets; and I'm tired of hip-huggers (a la l970s). Clothes manufacturers are saving a lot of money by the amount of material they've taken out of women's clothing, and they've managed to convince women that trading pantyhose for entire outfits made of skin-tight spandex is a good look.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DB8741 Great looking
These shorts feel great, need no ironing, wear well.
The complaint is that they don't have enough belt loops,
would like 1 or 2 more.
