Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice pants I really like the many pockets on these shorts. October 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by PFG Purchased these for my husband. Have had a hard time finding shorter shorts, rather than the knee length or longer ones that are popular with the younger fellas. These fit very nicely and were the perfect length. He was very pleased! August 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product meets my needs Love the deep pockets, like doing with or without extra belt. Sharp looking, fits well! July 23, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Half moon shorts. The half moon shorts are half the quality of Columbia shorts in the past. I am a strong supporter of Columbia clothing and now I will only buy Columbia products in a store so I can actually feel and see the product. July 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Decent shorts are back These are the first shorts I have liked for quite some time. They fit well and are short enough they don't look like knickers like so many, wrong looking, mid calf shorts are these days. I did find the pseudo velcro belt awkward and cut it off and use a regular belt. These are much like the ones I had in 1997 that I have been looking for ever since :) June 15, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Fishing shorts These shorts need to be ironed after wash Heavy type fabric June 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verry good Best shorts I have ever owned tuff and durable. April 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by So very functional With the addition of my current order I will have almost a dozen pair of these shorts in all colors. They are my go-to wear for much of my work (photographer), much of my fun in and around water and for any athletic endeavor. I prefer a shorter short and this fills the bill. Only caveat, not a biking short. For that get the right type of shorts. March 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by All You Will Ever Need I have been on the Hobie fishing team for three years and am an avid hiker. These are hands down my favorite shorts for either activity. These are my go any where , do anything shorts and I do not have one complaint about them. I am taking a trip to Costa Rica and have stocked up on these shorts; these are THE shorts for whatever your outdoor activities can throw at them. If you are on the fence about purchasing them , just do it. March 17, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Great at first.. I love everything about these shorts but they aren't meant to withstand a long period of use. I wore a pair every day to work for a period of 3 months and they came out with holes everywhere. The pockets have ripped, the crotch has ripped, and seams have ripped. Great shorts for leisure. Not great for whatever you can throw at it, like columbia advertised. September 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best shorts ever!!! I have been wearing Half Moon's for over 12 years. They are very durable and comfortable. Pockets are roomy as well. Perfect for warm weather activities. June 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shorts for pretty much everything Bought two pairs of these shorts and absolutely love them. Very comfortable for any activity and fairly rugged for people who are active outdoors. Definitely a great buy. May 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Phenomenal product The fabric is soft but durable, the inseam is perfectly short and the diagonal cut on the rear pockets make them very easily accessible. I will be buying more in the near future. March 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very well made product These shorts are great. Outlast any others. This isn't the first time I bought these. The last ones are two years old and the reason I am buying more is that I wear them everyday to work and I have stained them. The fit is great. Shorts this length are very hard to find. The 6" inseam is perfect. March 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shorts I bought these to replace a pair of Columbia shorts that I'd had for four years. They were the softest and most durable that I had ever owned. I'm looking forward to the same with these. March 16, 2014
