    All around great product

    These shorts are tough, durable, and surprisingly comfortable. Fit is excellent as well, and comes true to size. Also, seriously deep pockets. Nothing is coming out of these bad boys if you dont want it to.

    Quality is fantastic. As a 6’4” guy, I wish they were an inch or two longer. Otherwise great pair of shorts.

    Gray sharkfin cargo shorts

    Durable yet comfortable without that “heaviness” feeling. Functional deep front pockets are like no other shorts I have purchased. After several washings still no wrinkles! I purchased multiple colors.

    Great daily wear shorts

    Posted by SAM ONUSKA on Jul 17th 2019

    I really like the fit of the shorts, the fabric, the deeper pockets, and that they are made in the USA. I have worn them a total of probably 40hrs at this point through a variety of activities - both active and a lot of sitting. They are comfortable and dry quickly. The quality seems high but i did receive a pair with many of the stitching terminations need clipped - basically the thread was not cleanly cut. 5 star rating if the QA was better. A little pricey for shorts but i will buy another pair - if they are ever back in stock!

    Shark fin shorts

    Posted by Andre Nobert on May 29th 2019

    My third pair. If you don’t buy these shorts you don’t like yourself very much. The customer service is beyond reproach. I got the first pair of Sharkfins in 2018( midnight) and the stitching pulled a little on the belt loops, not structural, but you expect more for shorts at this price point. Sent them back, no questions asked, shipping / duty covered by them, new shorts 2 weeks later and I’m up in Canada. Well done, Origin!

    Great fit and quality

    Posted by CSM on Oct 2nd 2018

    I have a 32” waist and normally have to buy size 34” because of the size of my legs. However, with these size 32” did the trick. True to size, no need to size up... Would’ve purchased black as well had they not been out of size 32”

    Unique Shorts with great fit

    Posted by Unknown on Sep 6th 2018

    Pros: good fit - a really comfortable sizing - they hug the hips and are a nice length. unique style - cool zipper and buttons, contrast stitching, wide belt loops. Undecided: fabric - rougher/stiffer than I'm used to, I'm looking forward to it softening up with use and several washes. pockets - I'm not a front pocket wallet guy and there's no pockets in the back, the front pockets are unusually wide and deep.
