I am very happy with these shorts and have purchased them in 3 colors. I did have an issue with one pair becoming frayed at the waist band, but Merrell replaced one pair and the replacement pair was perfect. These shorts are excellent for sailing. There's enough room in the pockets. for an iPhone and wallet in one side and keys in the other. They are easy to wash and wear. I plan to buy more and recently purchased the Capri length too. Would love more colors, particularly navy blue and black.
