These are my second pair of BSL shorts. They are unmatched in quality. You can tell by the heft of the cloth and by inspection of the seams. Well chosen parts: drawstring, zipper, and aglets at the end of the drawstring, add to the excellent build quality. I'm a 32/33 waist and the mediums fit snugly on me. As you can see in the picture they stay up when doing floor work. There are three excellent pockets, with one of them being zippered. The only CON I can think of it that sometimes, the drawstring gets in the way, because it is so long. Other than that, highly recommended and will be buying again.
