Awesome Shorts! Secure, Waterproof, Durable, - Big pockets

I bought these for a Walt Disney World/Universal Studios trip. I loved the front zipper pockets to hold everything. I didn't want my phone, wallet and keys to fall out of my pocket on the rides. I really liked having the 3 pockets in each front pocket (1. the velcro pocket. 2. the secret pocket (great for disney passes) and 3. the main pocket compartment. I put everyones stuff in my front pockets when we rode Splash Mountain (4 cell phones, 2 wallets, sunglasses)... they were really full and it worked perfect. The side cargo pocket are really big and worked great to hold stuff for my kids, they also seal and close really well when you use the middle snap and the buttons (nothing ever fell out). I also loved the back zipper pockets to hold park maps, masks, a bunch of napkins for lunch. I also spilled olive juice on my shorts one day while I was eating my sandwich. The juice just beaded up and ran off my shorts. It did not soak in! I wore these short for 6 days straight in the May Florida heat. They are super cool and breathable. I couldn't be happier with this product! Plus I didn't have to worry about pick-pocketing (not that the DIsney/Universal crowd is full of pick pockets), but it is nice to just make sure everything is secure. I also took my pick=pocket=proof pants but I never wore them because it was too hot. I used the pants for a New York City vacation a few years ago. EXCELLENT product as well!

A Month in Europe

I just returned from a month of travels in Portugal and Spain and wore my Clothing Arts Adventure Travel Shorts almost every day. Although I have traveled extensively in Europe and never had a pickpocketing incident, I must say that on this latest trip I felt much safer and more confident with my valuables stashed safely away in the various hide-a-ways provided in the Adventure Travel Shorts. Passport, credit cards, ATM card, cash, phone, wallet, hotel key all had their own secure home as I walked confidently on the streets and rode public transportation in the cities and town of Portugal and Spain (including Barcelona, dubbed by travel guru, Rick Steves, the pickpocket capital of Europe). The shorts appear to be well made, fit well, and the soft fabric is very comfortable. An added plus is that they seem to shed dirt and staining, and when I finally did get around to rinsing them out, they dried quickly and were ready to go when I need them. One final shout-out to the Clothing Arts Customer Service staff. When I discovered shortly before my the departure that the shorts I originally ordered were a size too large, the staff was extremely helpful in expediting a quick exchange for a pair of the proper size. I've not scheduled my next European trip yet, but I know for sure that when I go, in addition to my Adventure Travel Shorts I will have a matching pair of Adventure Travel Pants to wear at times when shorts are not appropriate.

Great Shorts!

These Adventure Travel Shorts are awesome! They are very well manufactured, great looking, true to size and of course with multiple secure pockets. Franky, with all those secure pockets, it would be almost near impossible to get pickpocketed. I wear them during tropical weather here in Miami and in Central America and they are comfortable. The colors do not come off after washing and do not wrinkle easily. I'm 5'10" and 225 pounds and the 34 size fits me well.

The Pick-Pockets Had No Chance Of Getting My Stuff!

Just got home from 6 months in Europe, Africa, South America, Australia and Southeast Asia. I had two pairs of the pickpocket-proof shorts that I wore every day. They are the real deal. Souks in Morocco, Fiestas in Spain, Night Markets in Indonesia, train, bus, and metro stations everywhere... 100% confidence! It's really amazing how much I enjoyed knowing that the pickpockets had no chance of getting my stuff. I recommend them to everyone!

Very Impressed

I bought these shorts for my recent trip to Europe. Very practical with the multitude of pockets coming in handy, not to mention the peace of mind you get from not having to worry about checking your pockets every time you brush past people in a crowd. Whilst they look just like regular cargo shorts, with all the extra offerings - not sure why you would want to buy a regular pair when this product is available. Great work guys, I'll be back for the pants.
