Three easy steps to ordering the right size: ⊙ With so many different brands from all over the world available on the high street and online, the only way to get your size right the first time round is to compare a garment you own and which fits you well with one of our garments. STEP 1: ⊙ You will need a measuring tape, a flat surface such as a table, a notepad to record your garment's measurements - and your own pair of trousers which are a comfortable fit. ⊙ Tip: If you do not have a measuring tape, use your credit card. The long side of a credit card measures 8.5cm and the short side is 5.4cm. Simply use the centimetre measurements on our chart and divide by 8.5cm to get an idea of how many credit card lengths equals the measurement you are recording. STEP 2: Referring to the images above, place your trousers flat on the table and record the following measurements: ⊙ 1/2 Waist - Across the top of the waistband from corner to corner; ⊙ Front Rise - From the top of the front waistband to the crotch; ⊙ Inside Leg - From the crotch to the bottom of the hem on the trouser leg. STEP 3: Compare your measurements with our size chart and order the size closest to your measurements.Waist is usually the most important measurement if you are in a hurry, but checking all three will make for the most comfortable fit.
Shorts are a good light weight material and dry quickly. However, for regular field use the pockets are not good for keeping important items, and the belt loops are too weak. Finally the cut means that the waist is, in my case, loose and tight on my thighs. Had real potential to be 5 stars but belt loops and pockets a real concern for long term practical use.
