Rated 5 out of 5 by from fits great and looks good I have been wearing these shorts for a few years now. I have short legs so the 7" inseam works great. The shorts hold up well after washing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blows my mind. These shorts excel as the temps rise, with no riding, no chafing, and no cause for excessive sweating. The hybrid waistband stands out as simple technology that makes these shorts not only highly comfortable, but also highly practical. I’ve worn these shorts repeatedly for three months during a rather hot and humid summer with temps regularly above 90°F (32°C) and humidity levels northward of 80%. I’ve hiked, paddled, swam, mountain biked, climbed, and even played a pick-up game of basketball in these shorts. I also took them on a trip to New Zealand and did various cool weather day hikes in them (NZ's winter season). Being fairly long-legged at 6'2" (1.88m), most shorts are typically a little “shorter” on me than most. With an inseam just north of 10" (25.4cm), these shorts are nearly perfect for me in terms of length. Anything shorter might look like rugby shorts and anything longer belongs on the basketball court. Great fit overall. SJB has these listed as “loose” fitting on their three-point scale of loose, fitted, and compression fit. I’d say that is a fairly limited fitting scale, and hard to know what “loose” truly means. In my own terms, I’d say these are mildly loose. They certainly aren’t baggy as there isn’t much extra or excessive fabric. No adjustability to the shorts, but with the stretchy hybrid waistband, they can effectively fit a larger range of waist sizes than a non-stretch waist. With a 31-inch waist (78.7cm), I wear a size medium and they fit well, although if I were to guess, they could likely fit between a 30-33 (76.2-83.8cm) pretty easily due to the firm stretch in the hybrid waistband. From my perspective, breathability is what these shorts are built for. They have some other positive aspects, but the breathability is what truly stands out for me. In the hot and humid summer weather, breathable garments are crucial to comfort and health and safety. Of course, underwear also play an important role in the equation. I typically wear ExOfficio Give-n-Go Boxer Briefs with them, or a similar lightweight, synthetic, performance underwear that aid in the breathability. If you look closely, the fabric on the inner thighs are actually a different material than the rest of the garment. This micro-mesh-like area is where the increased ventilation occurs. If you hold the shorts up to the light, you can see light penetrating through them like old-school mesh gym shorts. This doesn’t mean strangers will be able to see through your shorts though (they can’t, I asked my wife to make sure). After three months of consistent use, there is one small snag and this occurred during a hike in which we had to access an overgrown side trail and semi-bushwhack our way to the main trail. I actually anticipated more snags and visible wear based on the lightweight material of the shorts, but am pleasantly surprised by how they have held up and handle tough environments. All seams, zipper, button, pockets, etc. are all in great shape after three months of excessive use. The main test: the PCT. I hiked 75% of the Pacific Crest Trail in these bad boys. After 7 months of hiking, you might think I was ready for a new pair, but these shorts are melded with me. They weathered the journey better than I did! I don't understand why everyone needs 8 pairs of these shorts: one will last forever!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from in between sizes My son and I have been searching for him some cargo shorts for months. He's a little picky but also hard to fit. In the fall, he wore a 32x32 in jeans so we've ordered 32 and 34 in every pair we've tried. The 34 was okay but needed to be a tiny bit looser. So, we ordered the 36. It was HUGE! Too bad they don't make a 35.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from St. John's Bay hiking shorts. These ( I own several pairs) are the main staple of my "retirement" uniform. The cool cotton fabric, comfortable cut and affordable price are perfect for the Deep South climate. I haven't been able to find any other brand that comes close to these hiking shorts. Thanks JCP, for bring back the St. John's Bay brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from hiking shorts already have these shorts in three other colors. I am a little on the short side so other shorts make me look foolish. These are just the right length and fall just above the knee. Very comfortable. plenty of pockets for wallet, cell phone and other necessary stuff. they wear well and wash well also.

Heavy duty?

Are these lightweight or heavy duty?
Asked by: Quink323
I would say medium. Not super heavy duty. Not light weight. But more a medium weight product. If you are looking for heavy denim, they are not, just a good solid heavy cotton, but not a heavy weight fabric. Depends on your view of heavy weight. I bought for a 12 year old and expect to get good use out of them til he grows out of them.
