These shorts are fair. The cargo pocket is to small as is the mobile phone pocket on the front right. 5.11 needs to keep up with the times. The Stryker shorts are a bit better with larger cargo pockets and the mobile pocket is sized for a modern smart phone.
5.11 needs to make a Tall size or 12" short. I am 6'-1 and these are too short.
I love these shorts. I bought four in different colors and pretty much exclusively wear them. I really want these made in the charcoal and stone gray colors that the pants come in. So I can get some more. All my 5.11 gear is still going strong after 4 years of solid use.
I have two pair of taclite pro pants size 40 waist. The size is right on and super comfortable with the elastic waist. I ordered the Taclite pro shorts and they feel one full size smaller. If not for the elastic waist I would not be able to wear them. Great quality but 3* is the best I can do because I'm sick of the of sizing issues also 5.11 doesn't offer free returns or inexpensive returns.
Extremley functional, great fit and look. Deep front pockets secure wallet and keys when active. Cell phone pocket just fits my iPhone 6 with waterproof case. 11 inch length goes down to middle of my knee. I wear these for casual wear and also run in them.
I bought four pairs of these and they are all I wear now. All the pockets I need and the bit of stretch in the waist makes them very comfortable to carry IWB. I just wish they would offer them in the charcoal and slate colors so I could get two more.
Just like almost anything from 5.11, these shorts are great! Sizing is good and they are super comfy. Just enough pockets and the 11" shorts are just the right length. No complaints, great for on duty and off.
I have the pants, love them, wear them all the time. Ordered same size shorts, snug! I felt like I was putting on a pair of snug blue jeans. There's a mild tightness across the upper thighs and lower pelvic region making it a little difficult to pull items from the upper pockets. If not for the gusseted crotch, I think I would have ripped them the first time I squatted or took a knee. As for the 11" inseam, it feels good. Falls across my mid knee (6'2" height) and sitting the rise is normal, only 2-3". I wanted to give this 5 stars as everything is like the pants, but the snug feeling is a deviation from the comfort I have found in the pants. If I had to do it over again, I would have ordered up a size, but I could stand to lose a few lbs. so I'll just use them to help gauge my gym progress this summer.
I received these shorts in Tundra from my wife for Christmas 2015. I just started wearing them, May 2016. Great fit, nice color and useful pockets Prym snap at the waistband failed June 9, 2016. Poor quality control installing the snap. Be sure to keep your receipts for RMA, you will need them...
I love the design, fabric and fit. I'm 5'9" and ordered the 11" inseam. My pants inseam is 30". The shorts are tough enough to wear hiking or backpacking yet still nice enough to wear out on a date.
It states 11" inseam, but it isn't. All of my pairs fall short of that claim.
