    I used this product after only one wash. I found the inner mesh abrasive and the outer fabric not very soft. I am washing the shorts every week until an Africa trip in Spring 2014. I am hoping the fabric relaxes and becomes softer. This was my major issue with these shorts. Otherwise, they dry quickly, are difficult to wrinkle, have great pockets.

    It's my fault as I'm sure the description tells one the length of the shorts but I relied on the picture and was fooled. Had to return them as they are too long for a short person.

      I bought first one as I was not sure if it would fit as I have a difficult body. But it was above expectations! So I immediately ordered 2 more.
      The part that was a bit disappointing was the price. I thought that this including shipping was on the high side.

            My only difficulty with the shorts is that it has no front slit or zipper which makes it difficult when nature calls. And as I use it exclusively for sports and thus for nature's calls outside, it makes quick and easy relief difficult

                It’s hard to relax and enjoy the view when you’re constantly swatting at bugs, but the most effective chemical insect repellents are often the least eco-friendly. Not only are bug bites annoying, they also carry the risk of Lyme disease, West Nile virus, and malaria. A breathable mesh bug shirt is just the answer for keeping bugs off of your skin altogether.
