Pros: Comfy, Liteweight, Wide Back Pockets that blend into design, water repellant
Mr. Squint says "Buy'em."
And why not, they're on sale at www.ijpusa.com.
In fact, you can almost be like Mr. Squint, because while there's no one quite like him, you can wear IJP tech shorts, or their cotton, plaid counterparts to spice up the round or be the man in shorts about town.
As to the shorts, I like the length - long and yet wonderfully breathable. You don't notice the wide, back pockets because they blend into the design, but they are quite handy. The most comfortable pair of polyester shorts I've owned. Out of the box, they even bead up water.
Here is Mr. Squint, looking cool and comfy in 98 deg temps in white.
But there is more:
Look at the white shorts and find the back pocket. Mr. Squint double dares you. I'll have to draw an arrow - but see the wide hem - that is a pocket, and IJP, being the great guys and gals that they are, give you two of them. The tech shorts are straight out of the dryer. I've played in them at least five times, and if you like shorts, you will love these shorts.
I will review the cotton, plaidsters in a later Mr. Squint episode. Buy them while it's hot ... and they're hot.
