These are awesome shorts. They have a great fit and fit true to size. I am a 32 and the 32 in these fit great. I could probably wear a 31, but I didn't want to. The green color is AWESOME. The fabric doens't soak up very much water and it dries quickly. I have had very little problems with chaffing in this short. My only real complaint is that the waist tie is supposed to stay tight all the time because the back of the laces are coated in a silicone goo that is supposed to cause the laces to stick together, it doesn't really work so you have to double knot or they will come undone.
