    I'm sure that these would be durable etc, but they feel horrible to wear. While I'm a fan of their larger trouser variety, these shorts just feel uncomfortable. The rise is short; the legs cling to the body. They are neither exercise shorts, nor walking shorts. Wearing them with shoes or boots with any kind of socks would leave you looking like a complete wierdo. Not good. The only cool thing about them is that the fabric is ultra thin....

    Brand's answer :

Should you still own the shorts and remain dissatisfied, please drop back into the store and we shall find a suitable solution for you.

    Dobrý výrobek

    Nosil jsem 4 dny na túrách ve Vysokých Tatrách. Lehké, pružné, jednoduché zapínání. Cena vyšší, ale nelituji. Doporučuji ostatním.
