Why We Like It

I picked these shorts up almost 5 years ago from a local outdoor store and they continue to impress me. I've taken them to over 8 countries and they still perform just as well as the first day I put them on. While they may not be the most fashionable shorts, what they lack in street appeal they make up for in versatility and more. Essentially you can wear these shorts anywhere, at any time, and do anything in them.
