Men’s PFG Half Moon™ Short — Big
I've been wearing the Columbia Half-Moon Shorts for many years. They are the best shorts I have ever found. The partial elastic waistband improves the fit at the waist. You have the option of wearing them with or without a belt given the flexible waistband. The legs are not too baggy and work well for active movement. The inseam is a little shorter than the current fashion of baggy cargo shorts, but the length and fit work for me. I don't know what I'd do if Columbia ever stopped making the Half-Moon Shorts.

Sizing always an issue
Not true to size . Bring back Cliff Lakes style, your best yet.

This product has the look and feel of a great product. I ordered a 3X from the big and tall offering but the actual size is two sizes smaller than the 3X products I own from other manufacturers. Get the size right and I'd say I'm completely satisfied.

Great summer product
I was looking for a summer short that would be functional in all my activities. This one fits the bill. The product is multifunctional and is very well made. In trying this on I found this to be a little bigger than most other shorts I am wearing. The pockets are all well constructed and overall product is very light. I am now looking to purchase other colors to round out my wardrobe.

Sizes have become much smaller.
I will be returning the three pairs ordered. My nephew is still wearing his first PFGs but when we ordered new ones in the same size, they were so tight he couldn't wear them. I don't understand why the fit has changed so extremely!

These are the only shorts my husband will wear. He loves them. It's hard to fine good shorts in large mens sizes and this fits the bill.

hard to get a proper fitting on the internet but my concerns for these shorts were meritless. All good.

Style, fit, function is right on. Best shorts I ever owned.

I initially purchased a 4X but had to return it for a 5X (which created no problem due to Columbia's excellent return policy). The fabric feels both soft and durable. The fit, once overall size was resolved, is very comfortable.
