I wrote a review for these shorts in 2008. I'm back to say that these are still great shorts. Clearly they are great shorts if four years later Volcom is still making them! They hit at the knee and are a snug fit through the waist and ummm... bottom... looser on the legs. I have the khaki and pool blue - both great colors. I'm 5'2'' and 118 pounds and the size 5 fit perfectly.
