Rated 4 out of 5 by NevadaD Great shorts, but
I have several pair of these, they are well made and comfortable. My complaint is that the belt loops need more "give" in them. I wear a 1-1/2" wide double thick belt. it's nearly impossible to get the belt through the loops. Not everyone is an urban outdoors person. Put some give in the belt loops on these and the lightweight cargo pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DuckBootsKing Great shorts, but the colors are incorrect
I had two pair of these shorts before. The one that was my favorite was a very practical (never showed dirt) and useful (matched with every color shirt I have) khaki color with more brown in it to give it the properties described above. Unfortunately, the left pocket pleating got caught on a doorknob and ripped a hole. I darned it as best I could, but knew I needed a new pair. I ordered the "British khaki" because the color looked to be closest to my old favorite pair, but the actual color is what I would call mustard yellow meets sage green. They're still nice shorts in terms of how they are made and where the pockets are and how they fit, but they're ugly and don't match _any_ of my shirts. One would think that LL Bean would make sure that the color of shorts and shirts it sells can be combined properly without evoking the tastes of the 70s. Some of us depend on that kind of thing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by USQShopper Color not as pictured, size not same as previous
I have an identical pair in the same size, different color. The British Khaki is much more yellow than pictured on the web. In addition, while the size is the same, the new pair was tight even before I had done the recommended wash before wearing. All in all, a bit of a disappointment. While I like the original pair, it has developed a tear in one of the cargo pockets. I have not worn it terribly often, so it probably caught on something, but I don't recall. Even so, I'm surprised that it ripped so easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rjr403 These are now my favorite shorts.
These shorts are outstanding. Great material that is not to thin or thick and can be worn year round. Great fit and style and they wash really well and don't necessarily have to be ironed. I purchased a second pair in another color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nuhiker Nice shorts
I bought these shorts for my husband as a gift. The shorts are made from a nice soft comfortable material and the length seems just right. They are good quality. He is happy with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TravelReader Ordered More
I purchased one pair of these shorts a few weeks ago. They are very comfortable and they fit me perfectly. I was wearing them every day and decided that one pair would not do. So, I purchased two more pairs last week. If they came in more colors, like dark blue, I would order more.

Before these shorts could be worn. i had to wash them to remove excess fabric dye. these directions were attached to the garment , also i dont think the fabric was of the quallity of previousy purchased khaki mens shorts from LL Bean. And most importantly they were not made in the USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by clkiii just like it said - and quickly too
The shorts are true fit which is good to find. I like my cargo pockets to be button not hook & loop so I bought these. Cost was little more - but I did not wait for any sale and with LL Bean's quality I am sure I'll get good use out of them. Delivery arrived a day sooner than scheduled what more could I ask for
