Men's PFG Brewha II™ Short 4.8 5 13 13
Cargo Shorts The key loop should be on the right side, my last Columbia shorts were on the right, and most people are right handed, why on left side now? The inside stitching had treads with sharp ends that needed to be snipped. Material is good, cargo pockets with Velcro instead of buttons with rope handles very good. Color selection could be better. I would buy it again, October 26, 2014
great shorts but Nice shorts, but not the style I thought from the online description. Suggest you put the style name in the shorts so a happy customer can reorder without guessing if he is ordering the same style he is happy with and thinks he is ordering. October 26, 2014
My favorite! These Columbia's have been my shorts-of-choice for years (model name may have been different than now) due to their quality construction, functionality, and excellent comfort. I have had pairs last multiple years through year-long use and washing; I live in a warm climate so these shorts see service the entire year. I love the hook & loop fasteners on the front cargo pockets which are a perfect size for my wallet, keys, pocket knife, etc. The deep front pockets easily accommodate large smartphones. I also like the relatively new right hip pocket which is perfect for my iPhone. I may have purchased the last Mud-colored pair during the last sale. I would love to see two new colors: khaki and olive; I like the Sage which seems to be a cross between the two, but would love the option for 2 more distinct colors. October 11, 2014
Needs longer inseam great shorts but wish they came in a 10" or 11" inseam instead of 7". nice and roomy in the legs. September 26, 2014
All-Around Great Product If you don' mind the length (7), this is a great pair of shorts. One feature I really like is that I wear my wallet on my right side where the pocket is a little off-center. I can now drive for hours and not have my wallet digging into me. August 17, 2014
summertime the original Brewhas are myfavorite summer go-to shorts, but my 3 pair are showing their extensive use. These new ones seem to be of a slightly lighter/softer weave, with a larger :) phone pocket that my Note II fits in nicely. This pair has already had one long desert outing, keeping me just as happy as the originals. Note on fit, as listed the fit is 'relaxed', perfect for hot weather hikes, don't down-size.

Innovative product alert - Looks good - Wears well I love these shorts. My hats off to those at Columbia that brought this product to market. Finally - someone with gumption to buck the system. They did not utilize the horrible Columbia 'snap' waist band closure. I am not going to say more about how terrible that is except I will never buy another pair of otherwise great quality clothing totally ruined by the lame waist band snap. The Brewha ll shorts have a button waist band closure allowing full movement without the constant aggravation of the pants bursting open at the waist band. The most innovative feature is the really nifty pocket on the upper back side of the pants to SECURELY store your cell phone. This is revolutionary men's clothing design. The pocket is placed high enough that you don't crush the phone while sitting. It is well thought out and easy to get to when needed. No more digging deep into a cargo style pleated side pocket where your phone bounces off your upper knee while hiking. Thank you Columbia. Very good shorts. Could you please follow up with full length pants with the same features?? Most likely the pant I would wear the majority of the time. July 18, 2014
Good product Great shorts...they wear well. 1. No need for the loops on the cargo pocket. 2. Make both back pockets zipper pockets like the one on the left. 3. Add more colors...a lot more colors! I will buy them Thanks! May 4, 2014
Great fishing short! I don't like to fish in plastic shorts and I don't surf, so I have no need for board shorts. This short is cool, comfortable and the fit is spot on. Plenty of deep pockets. March 29, 2014
Great Color selection, durable material I love the Brewha II line shorts for men. They have a great color selection(I wear mine at sporting events and riding my bike) and the fabric is robust and holds up to the elements. the pocket configuration is great and I love the buckle loop for keys and key clips. Outstanding pair of shorts. I have several of the bright colors because I like to be visible when biking. You never know if the car traffic sees you! March 26, 2014
Great shorts No so long as other shorts...good comfort, fit, great phone pocket....wish all my short were this one....been wearing these for a couple years, now.... March 16, 2014
