The sizing is off by an inch. A 36 waist is actually a 37, and so forth. It'll fit loose in the hips. Hem is above the knee, which makes it ideal for beach volleyball, jogging, windsurfing, snorkeling, and just about anything else that involves kicking, running, or jumping. The pocket is big enough for wallet and keys, but not wallet, keys, and cellphone. The dynasuede material is durable and dries quickly. I wish it still had the neo-fly so that the fly wouldn't snag on compression shorts, but otherwise it's a can't-miss short.
