    Yes, the belt is removable.

    Default water shorts

    Not sure what your budget is but I recently aquired a pair of Pelagic shorts. www.pelagicgear.com. Not affiliated but being in and out of the water they are great. belt loops, front pockets and cargo pockets on the side for wallet and cell phone for when you are on your way to the water. Will hold a fly box if you are wet wading. Waist seems true to size. Length is about what a board short would be. I am too old and fat for the tennis short cut/fit of patagonia baggies of my youth.

    I found these on their site that mostly fit what I'm looking for. Real belt loops are a "must have" deal breaker. I'm not swimming any more class II-III rapids with my shorts around my ankles

    Have you ever seen the Prana Stretch Zion shorts? I use them for nearly everything - they've got a cinch belt that works pretty great, but you can also remove that and they've got real belt loops. They're very rugged, stretchy, and dry quickly.

    They're originally sold as climbing/hiking shorts but I've run rivers and surfed in them with no issues.

    All I know is that I am sitting here in the Ex Offico Nio Amphi Convertibles. I don't normally pay a lot for pants but these were worth every penny. I use mine for diving as a thermal layer under my drysuit in warmer temps. These can take a soaking and still come out dry in a hours or so.

    And yes, you can take the belt out (I do when I dive, as it feels a little restrictive )
