    Great for Roaming, Running, and Rucking

    Now, I wouldn't say, run for miles or days in these, but if I'm going into the woods, I'm not going to grab some off the rack shorts with cheap, velcro-lined pockets, I'm grabbing these. These shorts are amazing, they feel great, look great (who says you can't look like a stud in cargo shorts?), and the most durable shorts I own. Did I mention that the front pockets are so deep I had to head a cave diving expedition to find the bottom? Congratulations Origin, y'all ruined all other brands of shorts for me.

    Olive Sharkfin Cargo Shorts

    Good fit, comfortable, deep pockets. They're pricey, but you're supporting American manufacturing and that's worth it to me.

    Olive Sharkfin Cargo Shorts

    Posted by Tim on Jul 8th 2020

    I have to buy another pair since I've worn these nearly every day since I got them and co-workers are starting to take notice. - 4 month old puppy could not ruin them with his teeth. - break in quick and are more comfy than I thought - I had to stop trying to put my wallet in my back pocket since that was my behavior and these have no back pocket- but sitting on my wallet was a stupid habit anyway. These shorts have a construction that feels like they aren't going anywhere so now I have to watch my waist and stay in shape...another little benefit there.

    Almost perfect but...

    These shorts are fantastic. They’re comfortable, good deep pockets, American made, great price, etc. However, they’re lacking back pockets for a wallet, or whatever, which would push these shorts over the top.

    Most comfortable shorts I ever owned. The only downside is the 9 million strings that are hanging off. Being a service member ruined my ability to let it go, but 30 mins with a lighter and all was solved. Get after it!
