        This is not a trendy swimsuit. But it works, and it's better than wearing old cutoff jeans. It still has an inner lining and pockets, and still dries quickly.

        Very quick to dry and remain comfortable even after being in salt water.
        The inner brief is just a little bit too tight for my luggage although, this keeps things snug and warm.

          Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's River Shorts:

          The waist is tightened by what appears to be a shoelace with no cord lock. I'm a little bit afraid that if I jump into the water or climb back into a boat from the water that the shorts will slide down embarrassingly. On the whole, the shorts really do double as paddling and swimming shorts fairly well.

                  Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's River Shorts:

                  First off, I was looking for a cheaper ($$) pair of shorts, so I got what I paid for. They are decent shorts, plain and simple. Take this reveiw in reference to my size. I bought a size "L". If fits fairly good. Maybe, just MAYBE, I could go with a size XL, but I was afraid of have "balloon shorts". Unfortunately I fall in the category of people who are constantly "on the border" in terms of which size to get--both tops and bottoms. I am 6'1", 200 lbs, and wear a 35" waist (normally). Actual measured waist (using string) is 38"---Why can't all clothes makers just go to actual measurements for both male and female. It would make things so musch easier. I use these shorts for outdoor activities--hiking, lake, etc.

                  PROS: The shorts dry quickly, which they should. I like the zip pocket-great for the obvious DL,CC,DC,$$, and key. Front pockets are fairly deep, good enough for iphone5, but not on a roller coaster or if I was in the rodeo circuit. The length is good to great. I hate long shorts, and these are 3-4 inches above the knee.

                  CONS: First off, I am not a fan of built in briefs/mesh liner. So with that said, I have tried these shorts for a few days with the liner. Eh, not impressed--I still dont like the liner. I much prefer to spend the extra $$ and invest in some exofficio boxer breifs or something of the same. Maybe the ExO take a little longer to dry, and ovisously cost more money, but still nice, and I still prefer separte undies, . My biggest problem with these shorts are the legs. Unfortunately I was blessed to have a couple pair of Mountain Hardware canyon shorts (7") form a few production runs back (maybe 2008-2009), no short I have found(even newer MH canyon) compares to the legs these shorts offer. The MH has almost bellbottom/dress design to each leg--hence they never hold my leg back when I squat/jump/deep bend at the knee. The EMS river short, tend to taper from crotch to the bottom of the short, thus always impeeding my leg when it bends. I am not over weight, but I am not a toothpick. I am average build. This leg taper is my biggest complaint, and REALLY glad I did not opt for the size XL, really feel that would be like a hot air ballon due to the leg taper. Next step will be to cut out the liner. I bought three pair of these, so it is worth experimenting. Three pairs of these shorts are equivelnt to one pair of MH canyon, so it was worth giving them a shot. And it would be nice if these shorts had a pocket on the left back (velcro would be fine).

                    For some reason, women's shorts do not have mesh liners. I am not very big (5'4", 112#) and the men's size S are very comfortable.
