Rated 4 out of 5 by RonP Great Pants BUT they STINK!!
I love the look and quality of these shorts but I have not been able to wear them in over a year.
I purchased one pair of black denim initially and they arrived in a timely manner. When I opened the package I could not believe the smell coming from the pants. It was a very strong chemical smell close to a skunk smell. I did complain about the smell to customer service but I decided I would keep them and wash the smell out. Well, I washed and washed and washed the pants and they still smell. I have used all sorts of detergents except bleach, I have used cold to hot water, Woolite to vinegar and they still have an awful order. I set them outside on my deck railing for almost a year to air out and there is still a smell strong enough that I know others would notice.
In the meantime I thought maybe I received a bad pair so I purchased another pair 6 months later and they arrived with the same horrific odor.
I know they are manufactured outside the U.S. and I would like to know what they use in the fabric processing or the dye. I have not seen any other complaints about the pants so I wonder if it is just the black denim shorts that smell this way. I like everything else about the shorts but still cannot wear the two pairs, yet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SouthBendBob Zippers are cheap
I bought three pair, plenty large enough so my problem isn't tightness. I can fasten these up and pull them up no problem. The zippers just aren't rugged enough to stand the strain from sliding in and out of my car seat. The zipper on the denim shorts which I loved as long as they lasted failed first, after about three wearings. Shorts you can't zip up aren't worth much. Now before the season is over the camo short's zipper pulled apart, so I'm down to the green pair. I have errands to run today and will keep a close eye on my zipper. I don't want to find it open like I did at Lowe's yesterday. If the zippers would stand up to the every day rough and tumble, I'd rate them much higher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Otto888 Four pair and counting!
I love these shorts! I wear them virtually every day. The blue denim are so soft and comfortable and the waist band never binds. I've got them in the denim blue, olive, tan and gray...not sure about ever getting the burnt orange!

Rated 2 out of 5 by OHSC Nice looking but cheap zipper
These shorts were made well, except for a very light-weight, cheap zipper. After several wearings both pairs that I purchased for my husband had broken zippers. Disappointing.

These are really nice looking shorts. They are true to size and fit well. My husband is very particular about the waistband so this elastic fit is perfect. But .... they do shrink if you wash them in warmer water and dry in the dryer. We are replacing the exact same shorts in a size larger for this reason. Live and learn.
