product comment These are perfect for the active, get it done outdoors person. They take on some serious foreign matter and clean well. April 4, 2013
Good shorts I like these. I'm a short, 5-5. I ordered the 30 waist and 8 inseam which is just right for me. If you're taller than say 5-6 then you should probably go with the 10 inseam. I like the material and function. There's a cargo pocket on the left side. I would prefer having one on the right side too. There also seems to be a cellphone pocket on the right side but it doesn't have a closure. Overall though, very good. February 16, 2013
Poor Selection Very disappointed in the selection size. No 36" in the 10" length in any color. Is this going to be a dicontinued item?? These shorts are very comfortable, easy to clean and fit great.Only problem is I cannot get the size I need. January 11, 2013
Excellent overall The only complaint, and it's a small one, is the small side pocket. An old pair I own had an elastic strip that closed the pocket a little bit and helped keep things in that pocket. I personally use it for my cell phone. The new pocket has no elastic and I find my phone falls out when I sit or have to squat down for things. Otherwise, the shorts perform perfectly, are very comfortable and they fit perfectly to size. November 24, 2012
don't get the short length I made a mistake and ordered the 8" length. Don't do it unless you're traveling back to the 80's. Otherwise I'm sure this product is perfectly fine. October 20, 2012
Long-term User Have purchased several pairs of these shorts over the past several years. They are excellent -- comfortable and lightweight. They're durable and don't fade with repeated washings. The elastic waistband is a big plus. The pockets are excellent, especially the zippered right rear pocket is a nice touch. They look great and fit well. This is truly a great product. September 20, 2012
Blood n Guts shorts With my short and stocky statue, I often have difficulty finding shorts that are not too long or baggy. These shorts are a perfect and very comfortable fit. I kayak fish alot and want comfort when sitting for 5-6 hours at a time. These Blood n Guts shorts are the perfect item.....ordered 1 of every color to finish out the summer! September 14, 2012
Nice all-around Seems to be well thought out and constructed and has enough pocket space even without a right hand cargo pocket. The spacious RH hip pocket is plenty big enough for my Galaxy S III. September 6, 2012
Great everyday and fishing shorts! I've since bought 4 more pairs of these shorts they are great, was a little worried at first about the higher knee "I'm not used to shorts that go above the knee" but they turned out to be much more comfortable then others "longer" shorts I have. I'd recommend these shorts for anyone that is active! September 5, 2012
This product has great features The lightweight fabric is perfect for Hot weather days. I live in the Southwest and fabric light this is just what I have been looking for. I will be adding more Columbia clothing. I bought my first Columbia pants in Telluride, Colorada several years ago. September 1, 2012
Tough to find shorts that fit right... Because I am short and stocky, I have a very hard time finding shorts that have both a low rise and small inseam. I was hoping these shorts would fit the bill. However, unless my belt is cinched tight, these shorts have a tendency to ride low and the legs impede walking. Nothing wrong with the product or delivery... as I said, I am a tough size to fit and these didn't quite do it for me. August 23, 2012
Blood & Guts Yes, and I tried to order more and they're OUT, no wonder! ha ha August 15, 2012
My new daily wear shorts Light weight - almost feels like you aren't wearing anything! Very comfortable. No rear pocket flaps to get bent out of shape. Secure zippers where you want them.Wish there were more color selections. August 14, 2012
Great summer shorts with fast drying I ordered these as I put on some extra weight. They fit well and wash well. There is a finer cloth made for fishing which is what I really wanted, but I find these to be an excellent fit, great finish and they look well. Did I mention... I don't iron, and that is what I expect in my hi-tech clothing. August 7, 2012
Blood and Guts lives up to the name and then some. I've owned the blood and guts before and liked them for there reputation of stain resistance and my new ones were put to the test yesterday. Not only does the fish blood and grime wash off after a day of extreme fishing but somehow when I wore these shorts for the first day I somehow got grease on them from the seat post in my boat. After the day of fishing I through them in the wash and crossed my fingers that the grease smear would come out and I can honestly say that when I pulled these shorts out I couldn't find any trace of grease whatsoever on these shorts.WOW! You can bet that there will be more bought in the future. July 30, 2012
Sizing is inconsistent I realy love these shorts. Very cool and comfortable and easy to clean fish mess off. The ony beef i have is same with a lot of Columboa products. I have been wearing size 38 in these shorts for some time. I order new ones in 38 and the are way too tight. Had to order 40 to get same fit. I find this too much and frustrating with Columbia July 14, 2012
Blood and Guts forever. First pair of "blood and Guts"shorts. Wore them for two weeks straight while fishing the rivers of northern New Hampshire. They are great for wading because they do not hold water and dry extremely fast. They don't stain and look good enough to wear for casual attire. I plan on purchasing another pair. My only suggestion would be to taper the leg otherwise a great product and performs as advertised. July 12, 2012
Just a great pair of shorts. My wife says I don't need more shorts. These are the greatest shorts, fit is wonderful, most cofortable, nice and cool in hot weather, great length. Bought two more pairs, with my wifes blessing. Service was just wonderful. July 3, 2012
Great to start I've only had these shorts for about a week, but as soon as I put them on they became my favorite. They are super light breathable and water just bounces off of them. They also have the 8" inseam which is perfect if your a little bit shorter and you want something that you can move in. I'm 5'7" and sometimes its a little hard not to find something that hangs over my knee and makes me look ridiculous.The one draw back has got to be the depth of the pockets. WAY to shallow! My phone falls out if I just sit down, very annoying. But for shorts that I can wear everyday and run in. its not so bad.I have yet to try out the "blook'n'guts" feature, but hopefully things will just bounce off, because lord know I'm a slob. June 28, 2012
Great shorts Perfect that they come in lengths. So tough to find shorts for a guy who is not so tall, but is also not an old man...yet! Liked the shorts a lot. June 21, 2012
As good as it gets! This is my 3rd pair of Blood-N-Guts shorts and they are awesome! The stain resistance is as advertized, amazing! Little details like the "D" ring come in handy when tying knots or looking for a place to tie the trolling motor remote. Very durable! June 10, 2012
nice shorts really like these. some complain about them being to short, but for an active short i think they are perfect. only thing i notice, i got black, is i see "dust" on them quite often. not big deal but worth mentioning. June 8, 2012
bld&guts Shorts fits fine, comfortable, extremely light weight, and very easy to clean. June 5, 2012
blood and Guts shorts It was everything we imagined, would highly recommend it. May 14, 2012
Over Priced After buying 3 pair and wearing them I do like them, but finding them at a local store for a much lower price I will never buy online from the web site again. April 25, 2012
great summer shorts Like the lightweight but durable material. Perfect for my trip to Hawaii this summer. April 16, 2012
very short I wasn't able to use these shorts so my review is solely on fit, not on performance or quality. The 8" inseam, only one available at the time, is really short. Put it this way they were barely an inch longer than my boxers. Also the two main pockets were very small, I could barely fit my hands in them. The waist fit correct but that was about it. The shorts were 30" x 8" perhaps the 10" length would be better but they never seem available. April 5, 2012
blood & guts change the name - they are great shorts for everything. the back pockets are a little long -- the front pockets are a little short - other then those two items the shorts are great for warm weather wearing. March 21, 2012
Blood and guts Liked the first pair so well bought the other 2 colors. Right length and dry really fast. March 13, 2012
Great Boat Shorts and More I knew they would be great boat shorts, but to my surprise they are the best all around shorts I have ever had.Very light weight but by no means are they flimsy. Perfect length , and feel. Anther Columbia home run!!! March 9, 2012
Great Fit Great Fit and Fast Shipping. Exactly as described, thin, breathable material. Feels like it would dry fast and stand up to a weekend offshore. Haven't field tested yet. January 27, 2012
blood And Guts Rock!! hi i use the Blood And Guts collection daily and im very hard on my gear i can honestly say that the product dose what they claim to do."come clean" my only tip is make sure you read the cleaning label and follow directions and im sure you'll be satisfied as i am . November 9, 2011
Nice style, light, and comfortable I have five of the Blood and Guts shorts. The 8-inch inseam is perfect since I'm 5'-7" and shorts with longer inseams look goofy on me. The product is extremely comfortable to wear, plus the two back pockets and the front-left cargo-style pockets always get used. I appreciate the variety of colors, as well. October 14, 2011
Men's Blood and Guts™ Short I must get another pair, so comfortable!!! August 22, 2011
Awesome I have just purchased my 4th and 5th pair of Blood and Guts shorts. I have worn these shorts almost every day for the last 2 years (I was a concrete construction worker during that time.) The durability is amazing. PLease do not stop making these shorts. July 12, 2011
Cool shorts I am a female and I enjoy wearing these shorts! They are roomy and super comfortable. The fabric dries really quickly. I bought them for hiking but I find myself wearing them pretty much everywhere. The 8" inseam is a good length for women as it hits me just above the knee.I love the side pocket with velcro to put my ID and cash in so I don't have to carry a purse. July 10, 2011
What great shorts! This is the third pair of these same shorts that I have.I like the sage color very much! June 20, 2011
Love It Way tooo short. I also wear size 42 inch waist these are 42 inches but are way to tight. I sure hope they stretch??? May 30, 2011
Best shorts ever made! I am a full-time fishing and hunting guide on the Texas Coast. I clean more fish in a week than most folks clean in years. These shorts do not stain. They keep me looking nice for my customers without blood stains. If they had a downside (which they don't) it would be far outwieghed by the anti-staining features. December 28, 2010
Fantastic I am a charter captain in South Florida and am on the water frequently. I have always relied on Columbia products for their comfort and durability. The Blood and Guts shorts are one of the best shorts that Columbia has made. They have hit another home run with these shorts! December 3, 2010
NO OTHER SHORTS WILL DO These are the last activity short I will ever buy.They are quick dry and coo fit in hot weather.Most comfortable work shorts I have ever owned.Mom hit a Grand Slam with this one. November 8, 2010
Slime Proof During a recent magazine assignment, I wore my Blood and Guts shorts while fishing for big bull reds in North Carolina. The lightweight material kept me cool and comfortable, but the ultimate test came after holding a big slimy bull for a photograph. The front of my shorts were covered with slime, yet they dried quickly afterwards. When I later washed them, all evidence of the slime was gone and the shorts are as good as new. I'm very impressed with quality and performance of these shorts and I've already bought a couple more pairs. For hardcore fishing, the Blood and Guts are "the Bomb." October 10, 2010
Short legs The waste is good, the material is good, the features are great, but the legs on too short. These shorts come to above my knees. I can see how shorter legs would benefit fishermen, but they are just not comfortable. I wish the cut on these shorts is similar to the casual shorts. August 10, 2010
Ok The fit is more tailored then the Silver Ridge II. Good for some but I have thick thighs so had to return them. I ordered these for the fabric and dark sage color which I liked. However, I found the features not has useful as the Silver Ridge II. I prefer deeper front pockets to prevent stuff from falling out when you sit. The zipper on the back pocket was getting caught on its flap cover. June 9, 2010
