We use these shorts as uniform bottoms for school. They are extremely durable and well made. The adjustable waistband is a must have in our family. We ordered our first pairs last year and they not only held up to the rough and tumble of our son all year, they were still in great condition to hand down to his sister for her school uniforms this year. The only thing that didn't hold up was the button, but it was easily secured back on, and since this size doesn't use the button for closure, it really didn't matter anyway.
