I thought these shorts were a great deal. They were a great, comfortable fit for my son and he really liked them. He wore them for the first time yesterday and in less then 4 hours, they were destroyed. He was getting up from sitting on the floor and they ripped from the waist all the way to the seam at the bottom. Just a note, they were not tight on him, in fact, they were a little big, so he could grow with them. I bought 3 pairs and I will not be sending him to school in any of them in case it happens to him at school. I, now, have to go buy him more shorts and cut my loses with these. So frustrating!
I have purchased these shorts before and have never had an issue, but when I picked up my son a week ago from school he told me his shorts ripped. They ripped as he was sitting down and they are not tight on him. I actually bought the husky size because that was all that was left. They ripped all the way from the top of crotch area to the bottom seam. The tear was so big you could see his underwear which was embarrassing. Not sure if this was just a defective pair. I would give them another try, but because the school year has already started none are available. :(.
