Great Cargo Shorts
I found these shorts to be very durable and comfortable. They are made with a nice thick cotton material that should last through many washings. The number of pockets should make these shorts very handy for household projects, but the pockets themselves are a little tight. Fit and finish is excellent so far. A Large size is perfect for a 37" waist. The transaction was great - easy to order and very fast delivery. I am very pleased.

Hard to Find
I have used this brand and style of shorts for over 10 yearsw. I have found no other comparable shorts in quality, wear, and style. I use thes for hiking, walking, and golfing.

The only shorts are good shorts
This is the second time I have purchased these Cargo shorts from Altrec.com. I have found that some shorts with snaps often don't stay snapped. This is especially true for larger (overweight) men. These have buttons which means they can be worn without a belt. The pockets are in all the right places and choices of use, from small to large. I literally wear these about 360 days out of the year and they last the whole year. I will never wear any other brand. Altrec, please don't ever go out of business.

PERFECT SHORTS (almost)
I believe I am on my third generation of these shorts. I like them for a lot of reasons: Slight elasticity in the waist for my adjusting girth. The front cargo pockets have single-point "hook & loop" fasteners so they are secure, yet you can open them easily. The slash pockets are roomy and easy to access. The rear pockets have single point fastener in the center, but no flap. I believe this makes them secure, yet easy to access (I hate trying to lift an "I want to stay closed flap" on my butt when trying to get my wallet out of or into the pocket). There is a "hidden" security pocket on the right side. No zipper or closure on it, but it blends in very well behind the slash pocket and it is deep enough so things you put in it won't fall out. WARNING: if you have very large hands, they won't fit into that pocket. I wear a size Large glove, and my hands are a tight fit. The shorts have 5, wide belt loops. 7 loops would have been a very nice improvement. The shorts are comfortable to wear and durable. The hems fall just above my knees, which is exactly where shorts should end. Longer than that and they are half-pants, shorter than that and you can guest star on Reno 911.

GREAT pair of shorts!
A young 59 year old,6'1' and 185 pounds finds these shorts to be a perfect fit! After researching and looking at various shorts I picked these and got them within a day or so of my order. I opened the package and put them on...and left them on for a great afternoon hike! The shorts have great features for a long hike in the mountains or along the coast. They are my choice for an active outdoor day...and I've now reorder an additional pair!
