I found the fit and the materials to be the quality expected from AFTCO but it was the waterproof cell pocket that attracted my attention from the start. A great idea whose time had come, finally. I was glad my phone slid easily into the pocket and was snug and secure, BUT, retrieving the phone from the pocket was a physical challenge and took a bit of doing. No big deal but I would guess by the time i got it out, i would be having to call someone back...my only other whiny gripe is BLACK? Why black? Not a great warm weather color, at least it wont show the fishguts like a lighter color...
Love the shorts. Wore them offshore in the Keys just last week. Dry incredibly fast. Almost weightless to wear and very comfortable fabric. The only improvement I would make is using the "Knobby"-type closure on the submersible pocket that is similar to Velcro in that it has two opposing strips that "grab/snap" together, but is little plastic knobs that snap together.
I love these shorts. The athletic cut is great, and fit true to size. I would order up a size if you're normal shorts are a little tight. I bought these because when you are a hotel or water park it's perfect to bring your phone cards, cash and maybe keys with you on the lazy rivers. Also for kayak fishing during the hot summer months. Can't believe someone didn't think of this sooner.
I was very pleased. The item came ahead of expected date and the description of the item is true in actual. I love to shop here now. Thanks AFTCO.
This is a really neat idea. The pocket falls short though because the top is so narrow that getting the phone out requires you to take the shorts off. So, once the phone is in the picket it is there to stay
Can not wait to use them as they look great. Love the waterproof pocket. However, I had two fishing trips cancelled due to the virus
