I am 6'7" tall and these shorts fit great length wise. The waist fit is a bit larger than I expected, but I am still able to wear them without a belt with no problem.

I'm a little on the larger side, waist 36, and was hesitant about buying these worrying they may be too tight, but on the contrary. These shorts fit amazingly and actually are quite complimentary to my shape. The stretchy-ness of the shorts is just right allow for greater flexibility. It's nice to have a pair of shorts that fit my legs well without being incredibly over-sized at the knee, but still offer my sizing for waist. Will be getting more of these!

I am a 18 year old high school senior and I've been searching over the past few months for shorts which allow me to look more professional than many of my peers without buying old man shorts. It's a hard market because I'm not the most stylish person and the shorts market is dominated by shorts for young adults with flashy colors and thigh tight fabric.

I looked at these shorts because many other people gave good recommendations online about the Volcom shorts. They stop right at my knee, perfect length, the side pocket is not well shown in the pictures but is perfect for an iPhone or pen. The right pocket has a small cell phone pocket but my iPhone 5S only fits around 1/3 of the way in. For people with larger phones I'd be unsure if it would fit. Keys fit comfortably within however to protect your phone. I personally use my left pocket for my phone and baby that side. It felt awkward with it in the lower side pocket because it pulled the pants low. I like the belt loops which are reinforced for using a keychain on.

Fit is actually really good, but ultimately it's the fit that keeps away that 5 star along with a few minor things. I wear a 31/32 in slim jeans and wear a belt and the 30 in these fits just below my hips, I wear my pants at my hips so I caught myself checking to make sure I wasn't flashing everyone when I was sitting.The stretch is such that casual walking will not stretch the fabric. Longer steps do but in the crotch which I feel sits much to low. I've worn the heather gray for two days now and they keep clean but don't have any stain guard kind of coating. I also bought the brown color but haven't worn them yet. The heather gray looked really good with black nike SB shoes and black socks with a graphic tee.

What I didn't like about these shorts is the cell phone pocket being in what I felt was the wrong side. Also the back pockets are so long that when I sit down my wallet is halfway between by hip and knee. Sometimes this makes it feel like it's not there, but others creates uncomfort because it's a strange location. I'm sure I'll get used to it. When it said these pants were stetch I assumed a slim fit, which is obtained when wearing, but it doesn't feel slim, nor does the butt fit. It's much to long for my liking and is the only part that stretches when longer strides are taken. Also the zipper feels quite cheap and I trust Volcom it won't break but it feels hollow and not as premium as the price.

I also own the billabong walkman shorts and levi's ace cargo, and each fits very nicely while each short having its own characteristics I like. These shorts make a good addition to my growing short collection and while I'd explore Volcom's other short styles for my next purchase, I will definitely look into the other colors of these shorts.

I'd recommend these shorts to someone with long thicker-thighs like myself. I'm quite skinny but a runner and biker so my legs are large so shorts are hard to find accommodating. If you're looking for a standard looks good short look no further, these shorts rank just as high as any I own.

Got these shorts because I wanted the side pocket to hold extra stuff. I didn't really find these shorts very comfortable and a lot less stretchy than other shorts. On Volcom's website these are listed as having a 19" outseam but I measured the 33" waist version and the outseam was 22" long. The reason I decided to give these away though is that the black version are a lint magnet. I can remove all the lint in the morning and by the time I get home they are covered in lint again.

Workmanship seems good. Waist fit was right on. They may be ok for someone who likes a longer short and in a color that won't show lint, but they weren't a match for me. If I hadn't washed them I would return them.

This was a purchase for my teenage son. He loves this brand, and the prices at the mall are much higher than ordering through Amazon. The fit was perfect.

Fits great (6'3) and covers my knees so I don't feel like I'm wearing short shorts.

I really like the design of this shorts, they are comfortable and good looking so I can even wear them on my work. The materials seem to be good and overall I'm happy with them. Just a minor con, they are some kind of fur magnet and since I have a dog at home I find myself removing his fur constantly
