World Wide Sportsman Boca Grande Cargo Shorts for Men
These are the only shorts my husband like too wear working around the house, etc. He is also a fishing guide and he loves all the pockets. I think with this order it makes about 15 pair that he has had. Also, he is hard on his cloths...the original 5 pair we bought was 5 years ago, so that's tells ya they are a great product. I would definitely recommend this product.

I bought these because they stopped making the previous World Wide Sportsman Shorts, which were great. I don't mind the longer inseam, but the other changes were terrible. FOR EXAMPLE: The Velcro pocket closures were TOO SECURE, I had to put heat to the Velcro to lessen the grip. The flaps on the rear pockets make it extremely hard to put your wallet in the pocket. The pleats on the front pockets hang up on everything(moving around too close to furniture or shop equipment) snags on the pleats. The worst for las: the idiotic grommets on the pockets, every time I try to remove change from my pocket, I almost rip my fingernails out by snagging on the grommets. Bring back the old version.

These shorts are made out of extremely durable nylon and resist stains better than lighter grade nylon shorts.
These are my "go to" hiking shorts and the backside has held up after scooting down shear rock faces. The seems are well stitched and the pockets are securely attached.
I like the option of many different pockets for fishing as well. I opted for a larger size than my usual waist for comfort. The shorts I hike in are actually 6 sizes larger than what I normally wear but the freedom of movement in better than any nylon shorts I have tried. I just wear a belt. :)

too much velcro
I have two pair of the older Boca shorts and love them. Thought I would buy another pair in a different color and they are OK but the changes have not improved them. I don't like the longer inseam and how much velcro do you need on shorts? You have to use two hands to open some of the pockets. Too much! If I need quick access to something while fishing, these won't work. The old ones had an elastic pocket, a zipper pocket, etc. Good mix. Even a smaller tab of velcro would be better than the Fort Knox style they have now. Also, the slash pockets are too loose and can't say I am crazy about the grommets. Will look at other options for my next pair.
