Drift Shorts
They're very comfortable, however the zips are a bit stiff and there are a few loose threads on them.

Almost great
Bought the Drift shorts in Medium 3 weeks ago for general wear and to roadtest for backpacking later this year. I have worn them day to day, on a short hike and running.

PROS
- The fabric is light and 'sits' well, unlike other ultralight fabrics that tend to 'hug' the lower body a little too intimately; it dries very fast.
- Stitching and general quality is, as expected, top notch.
- Pockets are a good siz; cargo pockets are slimline but fit most modern phones, main pockets fit my hands comfortably. The rear pocket (right side) is large enough for a phone/wallet.
- The cut is great, complete freedom of movement but looks smart enough to dress up with a collared shirt. I would be comfortable going from crossfit to the pub in these.
- Med fit me perfectly initially (176cm, 80 kg, waist 89/hip109cm).

CONS
- The waist band feels like the same material as the rest of the shorts doubled over and has become very loose to the point that carrying anything in the pockets i.e. a phone or even car keys drags the shorts down over my hips (and yes I have hips, it would be worse if you have narrow hips).
- Effectively this means I have what would be my favourite shorts with pockets I can't use and I am concerned about longevity (stretching further) as time goes on.
- For reference I've only washed these 3 x on a cold gentle cycle.

CONCLUSION
Almost the perfect all-rounder short, let down by an overly pliable waistband. If MacPac were to reinforce/elasticise the waistband, I would not hesitate to give it 5 Stars

Nice and light but...
Great lighweight hiking short. I thought I was on to a good thing until I sat on a rock to rest, shifted my weight to get comfy and, put a hole right through them. They're just not made to go the distance. Good idea poor quality.

Great shorts
Zippered pockets galore, light weight comfortable. Couldn't get a better pair of shorts design wise.
No problems with material hiking/walking in them but not gone down a slippery slide in them.
