From a civilian: These shorts are excellent. I wear them for gardening, house chores and tuck in a shirt for family functions. They look smart and are very comfortable. I love the higher magazine pockets. My iPhone fits perfectly in one, the other usually holds a Leatherman or a Gerber knife and hankie. The zippered back pocket makes my wallet unappealing to pickpockets. The medium sized cargo pockets hold a ton of extra stuff (glasses, pens, kids toys) and the paracord D-ring in front is great for clipping my keyring. They dry quickly, fight stains and scrapes. I took off 0.5 points because I wear them every day and the hem edge irritates my skin. But that's just me in general. Highly recommend - another awesome Blackhawk product.
