I purchased 2 pairs of these for my husband and I. We are technical cave divers. We had been using the thigh pouches for several years and decided to try these. I am 5'6" weighing 140lbs I wear a medium women's 7mm hooded semidry suit I bought the LARGE cargo shorts and they fit well. I will be changing out the waist cord with a bungie. My husband is 6'0" weighs 165 he has XL cargo shorts he wears a 7mm suit as well. I like the location on the side as it keeps you clean and streamline. We use side mount tanks which can make it a little tricky to get to the pocket but its large enough to dig into and feel what you want. there is a short looped bungie sewn into each pocket...I wish this were a hard plastic ring for clipping my items to...might be I'm just used to the thigh pocket configuration. But so far we love the shorts :-) Also Online SCUBA did a super job of getting the shorts to us before christmas !
Bought these shorts to compliment my wetsuit, which I use for all types of diving. Pockets are generally not needed for recreational diving and these are a money saver for the technical diver that needs spare everything and wants to streamline the clutter. Use them for my spare mask and wet-notes plus any trash I find in the ocean. You would never know they were there unless you need whats in them! I wear a L wetsuit and a L short fits just snug enough to become part of the suit. I replaced the nylon drawstring with bungee and they are near perfect...
