I can't speak for any of those, but I can say the Patagonia 7" Strider shorts are the ticket for me. Lightweight, fast drying, mesh down the side. Used them for everything from 5hr trail runs to warm weather packrafting. If you don't like the built-in brief, you could always remove it fairly easily.
They're also on sale right now: http://www.patagonia.com/us/product/mens-strider-shorts-7-inch-inseam?p=24645-1-598
