I buy these for my son. He isn't a great one for shorts, but likes these because he has a choice and can detach the bottom part of the legs if required. Ideal trousers for down the beach as they have lots of zipped pockets, so things don't get lost. Going abroad on holiday later in the year, and these trousers mean he only needs to take one pair instead of separate trousers and shorts. I intend to but another pair.
