Men's PFG Backcast III™ Water Short - Big is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have! My son is 6'2" and 290lbs. It isn't easy shopping for him due to most brands not carrying sizes for bigger people. These are amazing! He loves them. He wears them for swimming, fishing, to school or just hanging out with friends. They fit him great, he wears a 2X and these are true to size. We have already ordered him more in different colors. Thanks Columbia for an amazing product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great swim trunks Love these swim trunks. I am large in the thigh area and found these still fit really well. Other swim shorts tend to be too tight for me but these are a perfect fit. They also dry really fast!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swim shorts My husband only likes swim shorts with a mesh "panty" inside. He had looked all over and was very happy to have these swim shorts available. He is a big guy, so it was great that we were able to find a size to fit into him. He had looked at all the sport stores in town without finding what he wanted. Shipping was quick and within a few days of placing the order the swim shorts arrived. Just in time for our Florida vacation! Thanks so much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very functional I didn't buy these for fishing, but as a lightweight durable pair of shorts for hiking. Happy with the size, fit and construction. I'll be buying more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit These shorts fit amazingly. I am a large gentleman that is very active. I have full range of motion whether I'm fishing on the boat, docks, or land. They dry quick and light when wet. I won't waste my money trying other fishing shorts after this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I bought the shorts for the purpose of fishing and just enjoying the summer. Here in Florida it gets incredibly hot, so these shorts were a life saver. They are light weight and durable. Although I didn't enjoy the mesh inside of them so I cut it out with scissors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts for the Chubby Guy! Excellent fitting shorts. I am a bit on the chubby side and they really fit well in the seat and legs. These shorts will serve well for boating as I do a considerable amount of summer sailing. Great bang for the buck! I love the draw belt in the waist over a draw string. far more comfortable and they stay in place better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looking great This is a good purchase. I am happy about the choice. The shorts fit perfect, the breathable fabric, but light and water repellant. Unfortunately I did not have the chance to use on swimming yet, but all seems to be of a good quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basic Water shorts These are roomy in a size appropriate way, giving freedom of movement for kayaking, wading or even swimming. Quick dry fabric actually dries quickly! Amazing. Bright colors make me more visible to approaching alligators, a nice safety feature.
