This is my son’s favorite pair of shorts. We just ordered another pair, to make this his 5th pair. The only reason we need more is because he’s outgrown them. The Youth Mediums he has are still in great shape. The long pockets make keeping things in them easy, while the back zipper pocket secured more important items. The length is perfect and the drawstring waistband ensures the perfect fit. He wears them ALL of the TIME! For batting practice in the cages, to casual wear, to even sleeping in them sometimes. Each pair is worth the purchase price in comfort and quality. These shorts have lasted MUCH longer than other high-end name brand athletic wear.
