bought to add to my current selection of MountainLife shorts and zip off trouser range. I vary between 32" and 34" waist, most of my 32" are still a good fit, but occasionally I needed to go up a notch to 34". I didn't have a Beige pair in MountainLife, so purchased these shorts prior to going on holiday. Both worn and washed whilst away without any problem. A good purchase.
