      I'm a trip coordinator and leadership development facilitator living in Indonesia. These shorts are my favorite for work and play! I use other shorts for hiking and sports but for everything else it's these! I now own 5 pairs purchased over 3 years!

        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Classic Cargo Short:

        I love these shorts! They are comfortable, lightweight, and roomy in the legs for hiking, traveling, or just kicking back on a weekend with friends. Best shorts I've ever owned! Most men's shorts are either too long, or the lfabric is too heavy, but EMS got it right the first time with these. I'd highly recommend the dockworker cargo because of the stitching and quality of the fabric, very comfortable! The only drawback is that the dark slate grey color appears so popular that the ones in my size were sold out before I could get a pair. I'd be the first one in line if they made more! Great shorts!

          Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Classic Cargo Short:

          I purchased these a long time ago with no expectations. They quickly became my favorite pair of shorts. After a little over 2 years they started to wear out so I purchased 3 in different colors and donated every other pair of cargo shorts I owned. They are really breathable, which I find to be a great trait. They are also extremely comfortable and I wear them around the house everyday, as soon as I get home from work I put them on. On a recent flight my daughter spilled a glass of tomato juice on them and with little to no problem I wiped them off with water and napkins and the juice came out completely. And since they dry so fast I was able to wear them for the rest of the trip without having to wash them and without the embarrassment if having a huge stain on them. They are the best shorts I have ever purchased and I couldn't be happier with them.

            Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Classic Cargo Short:

            These are literally the only shorts I wear; I live in them day in and day out from April-September. My oldest pairs are 3 years old and going strong. These shorts are nice enough to wear to the office with a polo, and tough enough to go hiking/camping in. I've worn them comfortably under a harness for full work days at a ropes course. The gusseted crotch helps with comfort and ease of movement on the trail and the cellphone pocket inside the right cargo pocket is a great feature- keep the phone accessible but secure and comfortably placed. EMS-please don't ever stop making these shorts!

              Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Classic Cargo Short:

              I've been wearing two pair of these shorts for years and just ordered two more. They are rugged enough to hike and camp in, but 'normal' enough to wear around town (although I do live in Seattle), breathable, never feel like they are either too big or too constrictive.

              I've used them for kayaking in a pinch (they actually dry pretty well), and even run an 8k in them (last minute decision) with no problem. I especially like the drawstring feature, which lets me tie them up when I don't happen to have a belt handy. awesome. Also, the extra pockets are great for traveling when you suddenly need a extra place to put boarding passes, maps, headphones, a camera ... i've even put water bottles in them.

              I bought my first pair in the store, but since moving west I had to go back online to find them. My originals are fine, but I became paranoid that they might go away before I could find another pair I like as much ...

              Yikes! I noticed when I ordered that in my size (32) there were only two available colors. I hope they are just popular, and temporarily sold out!

                Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Classic Cargo Short:

                This is the second purchase for these shorts. The last pairs were purchased over two years ago. Although the last pairs I still wear regularly they are showing there age and use. I hike, Mountain bike and kayak in these shorts, and feel comfortable going into town or doing some sight seeing in them. They hold up to the toughest use, are comfortable and loose enough to allow breathing and ventalation under warmer heavy use. I hope EMS keeps these shorts around for a while, because it's tough finding others that fit, preform, and function as these do... Give them a try you'll see...! I have recommended these to friends and they have had the same similar experiences as well

                This year I will be adding a 4th pair (my third year purchasing these shorts). I basically wear a pair everyday. For the most part they have endured Asia tropical weather, over use, and regular washing/sun dried. Great shorts!

                Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Classic Cargo Short:

                I used these shorts all over Greece for various activities, from walking around, to climbing walls, to tripping and falling. You can use these shorts for pretty much any occasion, but I used them as casually as possible.

                The one thing I find annoying about the shorts were the snaps on the side pockets - they're a bit tough to get open at times. That's the only con, if that. They came greener than I expected, but eh, they'll do.

                They're not my favorite shorts, but I am warming up to them. I wouldn't mind getting them in a different color. They're a great buy for the price.
