Credo Shorts is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great fit, structural issues. These shorts fit comfortably & true to size, and look great. So what's wrong? On all three pair I own, the internal webbing belt has started to fail. This is happening where the end of the belt is sewn into the shorts (to the wearers left of the buttonhole). I'm positive this is because it is bar-tacked through only the interior layer of fabric, rather than having several bar-tacks sewn through both layers of fabric. I have a warranty/repair case currently open with BD, so I'll update this review when I have received my repaired pair. However, you do need to be aware that this is a possible failure with any of these shorts as they are currently manufactured.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome to climb in I have bought two pairs of these a month ago. They have a great fit and seem durable. The button seems to have stretched out a little, but overall great shorts

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but... I have a few pairs. I love the fit, style, and versatility of these shorts. I have also experienced the issue of the belt bar tack ripping through the waistband fabric on every pair I own. One would be a fluke, two bad luck. The same failure on five pair is a design flaw.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice fit and fabric, disappointing flaws Nice weight fabric with some stretch and a longer inseam led me to purchase these. Sadly the integrated belt pulled right out the first time I tried them on. Figured I’d still be able to wear with a belt but the first two belt loops on either side of the button are too far around the side, so your belt ends up riding up above the button and waistband. Disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great climbing short These shorts come to just above my knee, which is the perfect place for freedome of movement from hiking to climbing. They are extremely comfortable and seem to dry quick after a quick rain storm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy, great fit These are some comfortable shorts and they look great. Fit true to size. My only gripe is they wrinkle quickly through normal wear especially if you are doing any sitting or squatting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very versatile I bought these at the beginninh of the summer and they're great for wearing to the crag or a barbecue. I like that they don't restrict me in any way and look nice on and off the wall!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool belt feature I really liked the materials and integrated belt. The fit was slimmer than I expected though
