Love these shorts. Mostly use them for playing volleyball on the beach. Comfortable, doesn't chafe, dries quickly, not much more you can ask for out of these shorts. The 4-way stretch is awesome. As for fit, I'm a sz. 36, and I do own other 4-way stretch shorts by other brands (Billabong, Quicksilver) and those other brands are almost a "slim fit." These Hurley shorts are more generous through the leg which I love.
Don't know how well they'll hold up though 'cause I've only washed 'em a couple times. But so far so good.
