I like Travis Mathew a lot.   I need long inseams and they used to make them.    Unfortunately I think they shortened the inseam this year though.

I picked up several pair of the O'Neill and Hang Ten walk shorts from Costco over the past few years.  They work great in the CO summer.

You may want a bit more wicking ability, but I really like how these fit and drape.

I wore only Lululemon Kahuna shorts, but they stopped making them in the good material about 2 years ago, then stopped making them all together this year. I got a pair of Travis Mathew Beck shorts that are awesome and comparable to the first generation Kahuna.

The best I've found by far are the Linksoul boardwalk shorts....the name is a bit of a misnomer, they are for golf and the leg widths are tighter than most golf shorts.  I've found the material to be the best wicking.

If there's any FootJoy fans out there, I know I am, the new Performance Shorts this year will have a shorter inseam this year at 9" I believe.  The prior versions which were great in the summer, easy to keep clean, and kept a neat look were 10 or 11" inseam... made my legs feel short!

Ive been on the same mission as you. I have been looking for the best "hybrid" shorts for golfing and fishing. My issue is that I am a little shorter and need a shorter inseam. I have tried Adidas, Pategonia (excellent), Hurley Phantom (excellent), UA match play vented (2nd place) and a few others but the clear winners are actually from costco.

If you have on clsoe by, I HIGHLY recommend going there now!! I just bought 3 pair this weekend. They are extremely lightweight and very comfortable. The ONLY thing I do not like about them is that they have a zippered cargo pocket. I despise cargo shorts and i can tell you that you can barely notice this pocket. The best part is, they are $12.99 a pair. You can buy 3-4 pairs for the price of the Hurley or UA. Here is a link - https://www.costco.c....100313950.html

Second place winner was the UA vented match play shorts. These are great as well but pricey, especially if I have to get them hemmed...

Houston and Corpus have roughly the same humidity. Summer's been here all dang year man - not sure what type of winter you guys had. I'm always wearing my Nike Flat Front tech shorts all year round. have about 4-5 different colors. On the course and off the course. very comfortable and light.

Huge Lulu Kahuna fan here -- how's the sizing on these TM shorts? I'm a 33 waist and the 34 Kahunas fit me perfectly. With TM I also have to choose between 32 or 34, which one should I go with? Size chart is telling me 32.

I have been buying all of mine at Walmart.  The OP Flex 4-Way Stretch Hybrid Shorts are a great length for me being 6'-5".  I also got a pair of Wrangler shorts there to try as well.  I have never liked the length of the golf shorts everyone else offers, and for under $20 a pair I couldn't pass these up.

Adidas Ultimate Airflow is the best short I've found.

Under Armour Match Play Vented is nice on days in the 70s or low 80s, but when I wore them in Florida in July they just didn't stay as dry as the Adidas.

Hi -

Recently purchased a couple of pairs of shorts - the Cruiser Hybrid Short from Devereux, and they are perfect. Lightweight synthetic that feels great on you, looks better on you - very upscale, can wear them golfing or swimming. The inside of the pockets are perforated, and they have the right length - just to the middle of the knee. In back, 1 hidden zipper pocket, and one button pocket. Perfect.  Okay, they are $80, but they are what every golfer wants in hot, humid weather, and may want to take a dip in the pool afterwards. First timers get 10% off and you get free shipping.

Polo or Polo golf seersucker shorts, the polo golf one is a little more lighter I believe, extremely comfortable and stylish.

After trying (and loving) the bonobos highland pants last Nov/Dec, I just picked up 2 pair of their shorts.  They are f'ing awesome.  Best I have ever owned (and I have a least one pair of pretty much every brand).  Only drawback is, unlike the pants, I paid full price for the shorts :(
