This short is one of the first nylon ones I ever bought and I must say I did not know why it took me so long to buy some! The short is true to waist size (I regularly wear a 32 waist) and found it comfortable (and super lightweight!) The pockets are well sized for most needs and the gusseted crotch provides ample leg mobility, but be aware the legs of this short are not as baggy as your typical cargo pants, which can be a good or bad thing depending on what your preference is(I don't mind at all). As for its performance, I went on an hour long bike ride in 85 degree (plus Deep South humidity) weather and never found myself overheated in them, and where I was sweating it was never bothersome and dried quickly. The water treatment works well as beads of slipped off the material as water dripped on them when I cooled off after the ride. All in all, great shorts, should have picked up some years ago.
