…You’d see them wearing their baggies…”  Surfin’ USA by the Beach Boys.

Warning:  Some people may find parts of this description offensive:

These are not a highly fashionable slim fit snug garment.  Not at all.  This is the one short your significant other will not buy for you.  But you will never be more comfortable in whatever you are doing in the sun.  These are not a fashion statement, at least not yet.  THEY ARE A COMFORT STATEMENT!
Are you big?  Like, do you have big legs, hips, thighs, crotch, glutes, or waist?  Maybe more than one of these?  Are you tired of having your shorts creep up your butt crack?  Looking for something to wear to run, that does not look like a skimpy pair of rugby shorts?  How about a good all-around short for golf, tennis, surf, water ski, run, hike, beach time, pool time, or even for traveling this summer?  This is the short for you!
Loose big and baggy, lots of space everywhere!  Two side zippers conceal one of the most intricate and well-thought pocket systems in any set of sport shorts.  The zippers open wide to fit your entire hand.  Through each zipper you access a front pocket and a back pocket.  The front pockets are large and deep, large enough to fit a footlong sandwich, a tall can of beer, a 750ml wine bottle if you keep the zipper open, and even large enough to fit 5 tennis balls in each side.  Why would you?  Well, unless you play with a lot of balls, you wouldn’t, but we want you get a good idea of how big the pockets are. Inside the right front pocket there is a smaller pocket for loose change, a hotel card key or credit card, or even most reading glasses.  
The back pockets sit up higher on the hips so you do no not sit on what you have inside. There is a "ledged-seam" between the front and back pockets so things do not fall from back to front.  Since someone is bound to ask, yes, even the largest smart phones will easily fit in any of the pocket. The pockets are sewn to the outside of the shorts so they stay in place.
The entire short is made of our Microsurf fabric, and 100% woven polyester that does not shrink, pill, or fade. The fabric will only soften up over time. This short has no liner inside.  Instead you can wear, tri shorts, a speedo, boxers or boxer brief, or hang loose with nothing at all if you want. 
The waist has a 1-1/2 in elastic waistband with a heavy duty drawcord so they will stay up even if you fall on the biggest of waves, or if you dive of a high cliff in the Mediterranean Sea.

    6 months later

    I wanted to follow up on my review from 6 month ago. I'm still wearing my Big Boy Baggy Shorts almost every day, and the first pair I bought 6 months ago JUST KEEP GETTING SOFTER. No rips, no loose threads, no weird zipper issues...6 months of consistent use and the quality is BETTER than when I first received them. These shorts really do stand out in their design, quality, and comfort as everyday shorts (plus they dry out quickly if wet). After my first pair I ordered a couple more to keep in rotation. I'm 31-32"/170lbs and fit both the small (for a bit closer fit) and the medium (for that kick back loose boardshort feel). I can't praise these shorts enough!

    Great shorts, but wish they had an inner liner

    The shorts are well made and fit true to size (I’m a size 32” waste and the medium fit well); however, I wish they had an inner liner.

    Big boy baggy shorts

    Received the shorts last week and I am very pleased. The fit is exactly what I wanted and the pockets work very well. The material is very comfortable and they will get a lot of use this summer. I have another pair on the way. HG

    My new favorite shorts

    I originally picked these up for the infamous pocket storage, thinking they'd be perfect crew shorts for an upcoming Ultra. This definitely proved to be true! Love the pocket design and the zippers to keep things safe. What I didn't expect was how comfortable they are - they feel like a nice pair of boardshorts. These are quickly becoming my everyday casual shorts, love em!
