        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).

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

          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.
