Almost perfect for me

I really wanted to like these shorts since they are a version of the Canvas pants. But I wish the EDC pockets were bigger to hold a cell phone. Otherwise I would have kept them for sure.

Great shorts

I bought two pair of the flex canvas shorts and they are great. The length is just right and they fit good in the waist. Great upgrade from cargo shorts.

Great quality

Great quality shorts tho on the expensive side.

I will say they run a bit big, I’m a 36” waist and had to return the shorts for 34.

My only nit pick is that the front pockets aren’t very big so there isn’t a good/secure place for keys, beside in the back pockets but I don’t want to sit on keys.

But great quality I wear them every day
