World Wide Sportsman Boca Grande Cargo Shorts for Men
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.

Just what I've been looking for
I've been looking for nylon shorts to replace some I have. Not for fishing, but for everyday use as they are light weight, comfortable and dry quickly if wet.
All the pockets come in handy and with velcro you don't have to worry about loosing wallet, keys, cell phone, etc.
I did have to exchange the first ones I bought due the size needed to be smaller. With the elastic waist, it's hard to judge what size you might need. But it was worth having to do that.
Thank you Mister Mailman for mistakenly delivering a Bass Pro catalog to my 83 year old mother with the back cover torn off so didn't know who it was meant for. I never would have found these shorts otherwise.

My favorite shorts - make inseam 1-2 inches longer
The shorts are light, wear very well and are very comfortable. These shorts are my primary summer shorts which I wear all summer on and off the water or boat. I no longer wear cotton shorts in the summer because they are hot, they do not breath and they are not as comfortable as the Boca Grande Shorts. My recommendation would be to keep the same short design and materiel but make the inseam about 1-2 inches longer, maybe a 9 to 9.5 inch inseam vice an 8 inch inseam. An additional 1-2 inches on the inseam length would provide more screening from the sun and make the shorts appear to be more in style.

best shorts to fish in and drive long distances while wearing them
Glad I live in the south so I can use them virtually year round
