Men's PFG Backcast III™ Water Trunk 4.5 5 26 26
Fine quality A little pricey but of fine quality. August 7, 2015
Best shorts ever I cut the mesh out and wear them as shorts. They go great with the pfg shirts. I use them when I workout, play sports, swim, or just go out casually. Best shorts around! July 20, 2015
Great all around shorts These shorts are great for wearing all around in the summer time. As much fishing as I do, I wanted shorts that could withstand getting wet, as well as be comfortable for an 8 hour tournament. These shorts do that. Their thin material dries off pretty quickly as well. July 15, 2015
Great bathing suit but incorrect color My husband loves this bathing suit and has it in 3 colors. He's been wanting a red one so I ordered the 'sail red' but when it came it is more of a burnt orange. It was very disappointing to give as a gift and have the wrong color and now have to return it. July 2, 2015
Versatile on land or water very comfortable as dry shorts and as a swim suit. Dries quick and the material feels light and airy when wet, not heavy or clingy June 30, 2015
Very good shorts Exactly what I needed, good quality and true to size. I will buy them again. June 28, 2015
PFG Backcast III shorts These shorts are perfect. June 21, 2015
liner problem the mesh in the liner is rough and uncomfortable, it is also too small June 16, 2015
Nice Shorts Our son loves these shorts and so far they are in good shape from excess wear! June 12, 2015
3rd set luv them I use to wear patagonia baggies but these wear as well at 1/2 the cost. June 2, 2015
My Favorite Shorts These are my favorite pair of shorts. I wish I could wear these all the time but unfortunately I have to dress up once in a while. May 27, 2015
Perfect My 14 year old son loves Columbia shorts. Usually I refuse to pay much for swim trunks but when I saw these in a store I splurged. He loves them so much I have bought 2 more! He wears them to fish, swim in the pool, river and ocean. They have been through a lot & are still holding up! May 22, 2015
light weight /bomb proof /water truck w/ pocket Always looking for the right product to multitask. Wanted a swim type truck that was understated and had the ability to do light lifting. This short sheds water like nothing else keeping you dry and comfortable. The pockets are positioned right, cant see'um belt loops for over duty, internal draw string, and the water drainage is perfect for swimming with the Joneses. Perfect product for my needs which very from recreational to serious. May 15, 2015
Same as always Some outdoor companies come out with a winning design, then change/cheapen it in subsequent years so it quickly bears little resemblance to the original item in fit, quality and detail. Not so with Columbia Back Cast shorts. May 13, 2015
Great shorts!! My boys wear these fishing but also love them for casual wear. Light weight very comfortable and dry quickly should you get wet March 26, 2015
Great product These are great to wear as a bathing suit, fishing, or pretty much anytime it is warm outside. I wear them to go to the store or to run errands on the weekends as well. I also like that they aren't too long. March 23, 2015
Best Shorts These are great all around shorts! Tough fast drying I think I have had the same pair for 5 years you just cant wear them out. March 15, 2015
Solid shorts Solid everyday/swim shorts. I own three pairs and they all fit true to size and are durable. The side pocket is perfect for a phone and the netting is great, not too constricting. Good dry-time as well. January 8, 2015
Nice suit...with belt loops? Great, comfortable suit. Thought it was weird it had belt loops, but oh well. Still love the suit. October 6, 2014
great bathing suit or just shorts in general These shorts are very comfortable and great for people who work outside all day near water. No need to worry about having appropriate clothing for getting wet when you wear these shorts all the time May 22, 2014
Great all around pair of shorts I have three pair of these and I have worn and washed them many of times and they still work and look great. I use them as an everyday pair of shorts as well as a bathing suit. Blood and stains come out of them very easily. April 22, 2014
Water Trunk review. these shorts are well made but due to my height I needed a longer inseam, so I returned them. the credit was processed quickly with no hassles. April 8, 2014
Great shorts! They get worn and washed an unbelievable amount and they still look and feel great. March 29, 2014
Show those ugly knees Been wearing Columbia shorts along time , was always on the search on the search for a quick drying short that had a inseam lenght that I could live with. Columbia offers a true variety of different kinds of shorts, with an equal amount of inseam lenghts. I have a couple pairs I purchased along time ago and I stir wear them. Would deffenitly recommend Columbia shorts to anybody wanting a quality short. March 16, 2014
Very Useful Working in an outdoor environment all the time these shorts can do it all. They are so comfortable and I don't have to work about getting wet. March 5, 2014
Still looking. These shorts are "nice" shorts, but nothing special. A little expesive for so few features. I have shorts of a competitor that I have worn daily for the past 10 years. That's extreme, but thats what I'm always looking for. A solid "C" on these shorts. March 4, 2014
