Straight up - these shorts kick mucho buttocks. I wear these all the time (much to my wife's displeasure) for honey do's, hiking, yard work, etc. They have taken a beating and still look new. The adjustment tabs on the sides really don't work that well, but I wear a belt anyways. Buy 'Em, and tick off your wife, too.

These shorts are great! I purchased the ATACS-AU variant, and they are ripstop material. Only major difference that I was surprised with was the zipper. Other than that, I love these shorts. These are perfect hiking, around town, or at the beach! Another plus is that the price is better than some other brands. One of the previous reviews was stating that the propper website didn't have the sizes, but I checked and they were. here they are (http://www.epropper.com/p-87-bdu-shorts.aspx) :

Size Waist Inseam
S 27 - 30 10
M 31 - 34 10
L 35 - 38 10
XL 39 - 42 10
XXL 43 - 46 10

Size: LargeColor: Khaki
These are the 2nd best shorts I could find, 2nd only to 5.11 Tactical brand. I chose these due to the drastic price difference and past experience with Propper BDUs.

Like the BDUs, you will find the threading on the buttons to be lacking, and wind up resewing a few over the years. I was surprised to find that these shorts have a zipper on the crotch line, which isn't a huge problem for me but they are a little tighter fitting because of it.

The sizes listed are no help as they dont list the waste sizes they are. And neither does Proppers site. Pretty careless when your trying to run a business. I guessed at large for 36 waist and it fits. There is side adjustments that can tighten it up about a size. Nice rip stop material. Not made in the US. Good quality though.

Size: X-LargeColor: Olive Verified Purchase
These are great shorts. I am a Cub/Boy Scout leader and absolutely hate the BSA pants and shorts because they fade after only a wash or two. These shorts have not faded, do not snag, and are very comfortable to wear. They are also much cheaper than buying the BSA gear. It may take a couple washings so they are not so stiff but I would recommend these to anyone.

Great Quality Product!
Fits Great, Small fits 28-30 waist.
REAL ATACS FG with adjustment tabs.
Just like the BDU PANTS. Drys fast, great for beach or swimming also.

GREAT SHORTS!

Shorts received were great. Quality was excellent and fit was perfect. TOUGH constructed so I expect these to last a while.

I've worn the Rothco BDU shorts in the past and these are a step up. Actual heavy ripstop material, loose threads are at a minimum, buttons that don't need to be repaired after laundering and side pockets that you can fit your hands in.

A few points but not necessarily negatives:

-Material is stiff when new even after washing.

-Some sites list the BDU shorts as having drainage holes in the bellows pockets- I didn't have them on my shorts.

-Size:Medium fits exactly like a 33W so the adjustment tabs are useless unless I drop a few pounds and need to size down. If I was a size 34W (which at times I am if I'm still carrying my winter weight), I would need to size up to the Large as the Medium would be tight.

The quality of these shorts are reasonable for the price, certainly does not match the stitching, design or material of say, 5.11. What makes these such a big disappointment is the sizing. Instead of listing waist sizes, the company leaves to the customer to guess between small, large, etc. I guessed wrong and returned them. It isn't worth the hassle if they can't take the time to size them like most every other seller of men's pants do.
