    Comments about The North Face Straight Paramount 3.0 Short Men's, Asphalt Gray, 38:

    I spend 9 months of the year living and working in active shorts and decided to give these a try. I love how well integrated the included belt is, and how you have the option of removing it. The fit is pretty good, ideally I'd take a 33 but the 34 seems comfortable and not too big. I like the pocket configuration. What this short is missing compared to all my others is some degree of stretch. Otherwise this hits all the marks for me.

        These are my go to lake house shorts. Great for boating, fishing, yard work, walking the dog or just relaxing. The fit is extremely comfortable. My two pair worn constantly going on my second summer and they are just like new. I have gotten everything imaginable on them with no stains after washing.

          I love these shorts so much that made a made a 4 foot tall replica and dressed as these shorts for halloween. They fit perfectly and have just the right amount of stretch. I walk a lot and typically wear a hole in the crotch of my shorts in well under a year, but I've been wearing these frequently for around a year (modulo a Massachusetts winter) and they are in great shape.

            Outstanding shorts. Lightweight and tremendous fit. The material is quick drying and has the perfect amount of elasticity. I like them so much that I immediately order a second pair after the first day of wearing them.

                Used the Paramount short with cycling liner for mountain biking. Plenty of room in the butt and thighs. Great for getting pizza after rides.

                  The shorts fit my husband like they were custom made for him. He loves them. There's no wrinkles, no stretching out and wash and wear perfectly.

                    I found a pair of these at a local store in the brown color and loved them so much I went back for the stone/sand color but they didn't have them. I purchased them here at TNF website. They made it very easy and shipping was free.

                    I love the fit of these, they have a soft fleece like waist band area, netted pockets for breathability and built in belts!

                    I can wear these to bike, hike AND I've worn them to casual client meetings! They look great!
