These are my summertime go-to shorts, perfect for just about anything. I really love the cellphone pocket on the left thigh, it's discreet (unlike cargo pockets) yet gives me quick access to my cellphone and yes, it fits even the phablet-sized smartphones (like the iPhone 6s Plus or Samsung Galaxy Note 7). The only improvement I can think of is for this same style to be available in a regular long pant.
I bought a & now I'm back for a couple of other colors. They fit great, make it easy to conceal carry the lightweight fabric make them great for Spring/Summer.
