Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice shorts, inconsistent fit I've been wearing Dickies cargo shorts for years, but these are my first pair of lightweight duck. They're a great material, as described, heavy duty, but lightweight enough to be comfortable for daily wear. I purchased 2 pairs of the same size, and they are both cut slightly different in the waist, as well as the size of the cell phone pocket and even the small pen pocket in the cargo area. I read a lot of reviews complaining about the undesirable cut of the slash pockets and didn't think it would really be an issue, but it's surprisingly difficult to use them due to the etremely narrow cut of the pocket. Overall they're nice shorts, I'm just not nearly as pleased as I have been with the cotton/poly blend that I've worn all the previous years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid, comfortable I like these short and I'm glad I got them. They feel thick, durable and comfortable. Sizing is very off, however. I ordered a 34, which is my waist size in Dickies long pants (WP830, WP900, WP873) but when they arrived they were huge, more like 38. Labels all still said 34, so I assume they just run very large. I managed to wash/dry-shrink them down to about 36 but I have to wear a belt or they'll fall. It's ok, cargo shorts look baggy anyway, so it works. Others have mentioned that the 2 front pockets are narrow and tapered. This is true and it means my wallet won't fit (I live in NYC, no back pocket wallet wearing). Fortunately, the cargo holds and the phone pocket make up for the small front pockets.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No 2 pair fit the same and there different sizes The shorts all fit different. I ordered 6 pairs ando only 2 or then fit the same.. the other 4 are either to big or to small or to tight in the legs. There awesome shorts just fitment is all over the board. I didn't think a size 36 cause me make 10 different ways.. colors change sizing too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good shorts, funky pockets The fit and finish is nice. Not as heavy as duck fabric normally is, but they are marketed as 'lightweight'. My only complaint is the oddly shaped front pockets. The pockets are almost funnel shaped. They get very narrow at the bottom. This leads to everything I put in my pocket getting wedged at the bottom. This is especially annoying with keys, as fishing them out can be challenging.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too big I bought these shorts for work and they seem to be well made. I ordered them in a size 34 waist but when I tried them on they were at least a 36 or maybe even a 38 around the waist. They were ok with a belt and seemed to have shrunk a bit after the first wash. I expected a standard fit from a company like Dickies but am somewhat disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great fit, front pockets need some work. I recently ordered two(2) pairs of these cargo shorts and wore them each on several occasions this past weekend. They are very comfortable and durable as well. The cargo pockets are easy to access along with the cell phone/multi-use poscket(one of my favorite Dickies features). However, I am disappointed by the front pockets. The liners taper down to a one inch "point" making it impossible to reach the bottom with more than a finger. My 3 1/2" wide wallet barely made it halfway before getting lodged, and keys/change took way more effort to access than should be necessary. Were these pockets wider(like pockets on almost any other pants/shorts), I would have given this product a five-star rating without a second thought. As a person who appreciates(and requires) day-to-day functional apparel, I cannot overlook this major design flaw. Dickies, please fix this problem on a production level; these cargos deserve it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Shorts Great shorts, this is my 3rd, 4th, 5th pairs. Durable material and metal button is great, I got 1.5 years out of the last few pairs. Like everyone says the front pockets are strangely tapered but they actually seem to hold stuff in them better than normal pockets when I'm laying down. If they keep making these I'll keep buying them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit & comfortable! I purchased several pairs of the Relaxed Fit Lightweight Duck Cargo Shorts for each of the guys that work for me, and they have been thankful ever since. They have remarked how comfortable they are and lightweight but durable for the rugged work they do!
