Needs stretchable waistband

 Rated 2.0 stars

From MT


PLEASE make the shorts with same waistband as pants. For IWB carry it’s needed. Also for the price is warrants this detail.

Modeled After Pants..Not Exactly

 Rated 3.0 stars

From J.R.


Same Great Material, however Non-Adjusting Waist Band. They don't seem to fit like the pants version. I ended up just buying Stryker Long Pants, and having them converted to Shorts.

The best cargo short

 Rated 5.0 stars

From JJ


The Styke short is the best cargo short I've ever owned. Great fit, light weight and a great array of pockets.

Stitch came undone.

 Rated 5.0 stars

From nonombre


Very comfortable material, the thread came undone where the zipper to attaches to pants. Sewed them back but flap covers my shoddy needle work. Still love the pants enough to buy another pair even though I own a couple of different models I seem to gravitate towards the more expensive pair. So far material holding up after several washes so if it lasts it will be money worth spent.

Great like the Pants but not the fit

 Rated 3.0 stars

From Zach


Everything is awesome about these except the fit. You'd think the $5 cost difference in the pants and shorts is for the less material but they also removed the flex waistband. Just know that when you purchase especially if you carry IWB. I didn't and bought blindly thinking they're identical to the pants.

Not as good as the STRYKE Pant

 Rated 3.0 stars

From Scott


I love the STRYKE Pant and have several pairs so I thought getting the STRYKE short would be a good buy. The reason I buy the Pant is for concealed carry, and the waistband that stretches out for that is great. The shorts lack that all important feature.

Great but....

From AJ


Ok I own the Stryke pants and love them to death! Naturally, owning the stryke shorts would be a no brainer! I like them but the only problem is it doesn't come with the self-adjusting tunnel waistband, like the pants do. What gives?!

Typical 5.11 Quality!

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Mavin


I have several pairs of the 5.11 Stryke Pants, so choosing the Stryke Shorts was an easy choice. The only issue I experienced, however, was the difference in the waist sizing relative to my Stryke Pants. I normally wear a size 32 in the pants, but had to order a size 31 in the shorts for the sizing to be comparable. Other than that, the quality is what I expect from any 5.11 product.

Great Shorts

 Rated 5.0 stars

From JW


I have bought a couple pairs of these shorts. They are very comfortable and easy to care for. As with the pants they have ample storage and are durable.

I see what you did there...

 Rated 3.0 stars

From PVB


This applies to the entire 5.11 Brand, with this product as a prime example...

5.11 is like Ferrari in that their stuff is foreign made and expensive, much the the nuisance of the 'Merican consumer, but damnit its good stuff.
