Not a daily driver

- No place to carry a phone. Side pockets will fit the width of your phone, but it is shallow and center of gravity will be too high and it will flop around, so those pockets are only good for key on right (has key loop) or gels/bars. - back zipper pocket opening too small to fit an iPhone 14. - the drawstring itself is elastic/stretchy. So even if you could fit your phone in the back zippered pocket, its weight pulls the shorts down even with the drawstring tied because the drawstring is elastic. -storage tunnel for hat/gloves is good. -planning to cut the liner out, just prefer no liner.
