Boy's PFG Backcast™ Short is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pe fact short I bought these shorts for 2 years in almost every color for my 14 year old son. He lives in them over the summer. They are sturdy and can be worn as both shorts and swim trunks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great summer short I ordered the Youth Large for my son. He is tall for his age but very slender. I was pleased that the elastic waist fit him and very pleased to see that there was a drawstring in the waist. We have friends who have this short who are thicker in the waist so the shorts fit all kinds. He was thrilled because they double as swim trunks. We got 2 colors, navy and red.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 13 yo won't wear anything else! Love them and if he's not going to change out of these 3 super cute bright colored shorts this summer, I'm ok with that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs small Ordered the same size as other Columbia shorts for my son. He could barely get them on. I returned them for the next size up and they were perfect. Wish I wouldn't have had to pay almost as much for return postage as the price of the shorts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love them but they are too short Okay longer shorts are in and these shorts are a bit too short for my son to be cool, so I had to return them. Love the fabric and construction but the length were a bit too short. If they were longer I wouldn't have returned them. These are bathing suits with the mesh underwear inside, FYI.
