Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shorts These shorts fit great and are perfect for fishing / swimming May 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable Shorts are very comfortable. Sizing was perfect. Shorts have a little stretch to them, so they give some when bending and crouching. Perfect shorts for fishing or water sports. I wouldn't have any questions about wearing them on short half day hikes. April 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Boardshort These are great boardshorts. Super comfortable. November 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Board Short I bought two pair of these. They are high quality and very comfortable whether I'm offshore fishing or hanging out at the lake. I highly recommend these. July 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Buy 2!! This shorts are awesome. Even come with an attached bottle opener!! February 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent For Fishing or Outdoor Sports Great shorts for fishing, outdoor shorts or every day wear. They are light and comfortable to wear and have quickly become a favorite for me not only for fishing but also every day wear. As a professional fishing guide I live on the water and need to stay cool and dry at all times. Bought the shorts for fishing and quickly found they were so comfortable that I started wearing them around town. The only complaint I have and really not even a complaint but I wish they had a back pocket. July 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Boat Shorts The fit is one of the best, well made and the print is impressive. I would recommend these shorts May 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super comfortable I brought these shorts with me down on a recent kayak fishing trip to Cabo San Lucas. I had brought 3 other pairs of shorts with me but these were so comfortable that I ended up wearing these everyday I was there. I just rinsed them out in the hotel sink at night and they were ready to go again the next morning. They are well made and the fabric has a slight stretch. They kept me comfortable for days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cool shorts They feel great on and also look great especially with some of my terminal tackle shirts I wear with them while out on the water all day. August 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The print of the skelaton fish says it all !!! They are a big hit at the marina and during the fishing tournament !!! August 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great timely ideas with the cam0! The nice aspect of these shorts is that they have actual waist sizes in inches. They are true to size and have a bit of stretch. They are comfortable without a liner. I bought both camp patterns with all of the accompanying camp patterns. The blue pattern will be worn on the flats in the Caribbean. The Ranger for stalking Brookies and other Trout in wooded areas. As for the attached bottle opener and line cutter. I can always use a durable handy tool. In the Caribbean Beer does not typically come with twist off caps. August 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful material These shorts are made from a great material that gives just enough for an active river guide. The length is just what I was looking for to protect my legs from the sun all day. August 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Men’s PFG Offshore™ Boardshort Review I received the Men’s PFG Offshore™ Boardshort a few months ago and they are amazing. If I could add more stars, I would. As a fishing guide, spending 30-50 hours a week on the waters in both fresh and saltwater, they have stood the test of time, durability and comfort. The stretchy material is perfect for active people and allows for long strides without any worries of ripping the crotch area or anywhere else for that matter. The only improvement I would make is to replace the draw string with a slightly thicker one and the bottle opener is more annoying than applicable. The thought was nice but very redundant of other brands, especially when I don't drink much from any bottles requiring a bottle opener. It also tends to bounce around, hitting my thy and knee often so I simply cut it off. Other than that, they're one of my favorite shorts to wear in the field and simply lounging around the house or beach. I use them at least one or twice a week and have gone through many washes and dry cycles with no wear, fade, or shrinkage. July 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome surf/fishing shorts Love these shorts. The mahi design made my fishing buddies jealous. The digi camo made me disappear to wary bonefish. My wife couldn't see me on the flats to call me in for dinner. The line cutter will save me if a big marlin pulls me overboard and the bottle opener kept liquid refreshment flowing. Nice quality and great for surfing. June 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fish never saw me coming! Liked them so much, I bought the stock! COLM May 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by INCREDIBLE shorts Really GREAT shorts. Fast drying material makes these the BEST PFG shorts ever. I have been a fan of the previous ones but these are a notch above. I bought BOTH camo patterns (blue water and fresh water) and couldn't be happier. Great quality. Perfect shorts. April 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow I bought these for my husband, and he loves them. They are the perfect length (he is 6'4"). The material feels great, breathable and lightweight- but still durable. The shorts are very flattering. These are going to be his fave/go to shorts for the beach and summer. I plan to buy him another pair. March 14, 2013
