Super comfortable, flexible, lightweight shorts. Had to order a size larger to fit through the hips and seat, as I do with all my pants, but so far I'm very happy with the purchase.
Worth the money. These shorts are awesome! I've worn them on walks, hikes and just sitting around at home. They're extremely lightweight, but don't allow wind/air to permeate through like you would expect from such a lightweight material. They have a more relaxed look while still having tons of utility. The pockets are deep and practical. When not in use they lay flat. I'll be buying more!
I'm surprised I can write that. I've had shorts for working out in hot environments but in any other setting they felt inappropriate. Whether it was because there was not enough space in the pockets with out having awkward looking bulges in loose fabric, an overall visual appeal of a lazy high-schooler wearing cheap basketball shorts, a clothing cut that rested poorly and unprofessionally on the body or a combination of all three, my relation with shorts has always been a long distance on and off one.
With that being said, I believe that Beyond's Ventum Ultralight Cargo Short is a cut above its competitors. I wear them often for climbing or trips to the gym but I am just as comfortable with them on casual outings confident that, although I might not be as professional as I am in some of my normal attire, I look damn good and most importantly, respectable.
As far as the quality goes they are solid. The material is light weight, breathable, moisture-wicking, and flexible while being strong and durable. The hand pockets are deep so if I end up using them on climbs, typically on accident, nothing falls out. The cargo pockets are exactly what they should be and loaded up with a wallet, a phone or a beanie, they rest naturally on the body. Also the fly doesn't bunch up and bulge or rest with the zipper showing when sitting which is a plus.
Personally, I've already ordered a second set in a different color and I feel they are worth every penny.
P.S. The black ones look grey/gray/guh-ru-aye on my computer screen but they are in fact, black.
pure comfort with flexibility and breathable, best of all worlds
Feels great and the sizing was spot on
