Rated 5 out of 5 by Techsun Flip III Sandal Great product for the price! arch support is amazing. I can walk all day with these and be comfortable all day long April 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall: good for the price. The strap that goes in-between your toes is a little rough at first and the whole strap that holds the sandal on your foot is a little too loose right out of the box, in my opinion it should start out a little tight and get loose over time; but the foot bed is comfortable and the price is right at $17.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TechSun Shoes are good and durable, but the previous pair I own the soles have tended to come away from the upper. perhaps a better glue /bonding process should be used. I'll have to see about the new pair. March 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by comfortable good quality and comfortable January 26, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good shoe I wear these when I fish tournament from my boat and they are comfortable on my feet for the whole day, also help with traction on a slippery boat surface. January 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by looks pretty and very good at this price I purchase for my boyfriend and he like it. Compare with crocs, crocs is more comfortable. However, the price the appearance, the one is a good choice. December 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fits me like a glove.......but for my feet...... In SoCal it is virtually summertime all the time......I wear these HITECH "flip flops" all the time.....even in the dead of winter here.......... December 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by TechSun Flip III I love these sandals. I bought my first pair at Academy Sports about two years ago and was looking for a new pair of sandals. I wear my sandals hard and these really stood up to the abuse and misuse I give them so I wanted the exact same models. I was very pleasantly suprised to find them so cheap here on the Columbia website and so I bought a couple of pairs and will probably buy a bunch more just in case they ever get discontinued I'll have a good supply :) October 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by No Slippy Flippy Floppy These are great sandals! They were a little tight around the foot, but that makes for a snug fit that won't slip when wet. The tread is great and hasn't worn out like some other brands of the same cost. They have some cushion that makes them comfortable. September 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Not regular flip flops Bought these for my husband online. Good fit, good quality, good price! September 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best slaps I've been wearing sandals all my life, these are the best slaps for your feet. September 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better Flip Flops ! On 3rd pair ------cheapies don't last or fit like these do! August 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great slippers These are my 2nd pair and I am very pleased with the comfort and fitting of them. Thanks. August 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good sandal This sandal is well made. It does not seem to have as much arch support as other Columbia sandals I have used but that is ok with me. The footbed is comfortable and reasonably stiff but not too stiff. I wear size 11 shoes and these seem to fit just right. July 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pair of flips These are the best pair of filps I have had. July 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Men’s Techsun™ Flip III Sandal These and the other similar style Columbia sandals (such as the PFG) are the best sandals that I have ever have worn, and will only wear them! The best quality! Extremely confortable, stylish, and rugged! The best buy out there! June 26, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good quality These flip flops have great overall quality, but the distance between the thong & the tip is quite long. It makes the flip flop appear to be too big for my husband. June 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by the tanks of flipflops they dont stink and are very durable. The traction on the sole is excellent. I have two colors. wear the black one out and the tan ones for fishing and running around during the day. June 18, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Have purchased black, gray & now Cordovan colors For at least four years/seasons I've lived in the Columbia Techsun mens flip flop. Started with black and now swear by the Cordovan color because it's not as hot/dark in the sun as the black and not as bright looking as the 'Flax' color so is able to be worn with just about anything from jeans on up to shorts. Build Quality: each pair has lasted quite a while. The current Cordovan (Techsun III) I've had since they've come out. They show absolutely no wear and The first pair after a year or so separated the top layer from the bottom right at the seam of glued cardboard. Another pair, the toe post popped out but that was completely my fault. All of them are made with this Techlite material which may make your feet sweat, but, add to their ability to last and take abuse from nature. Comfort: each pair, possibly because of my feet, have taken a couple days of solid walking & sometime red marks on top of foot from upper to break in. Other than that, due to heel support, are probably the most comfortable flip flops around. Cost: the online price ($35) seems reasonable for a pair of flip flops of this quality. Probably would think anywhere around a list price of $29.95-$39.95 would seem fair. Down the road from where I work is a Premium Stores Outlet that has a Columbia Outlet. Religiously, most, if not all of the Techsun flip flops they have are on sale for $24.90 regardless of color or if their from Techsun I or III. Use case: this might be due to where I live but I wear these with everything. Jeans, shorts, casual khaki pants. For someone who hates sandals (which is what these flip flops are based on) I find these to be the perfect in-the-middle flip flop. They're certainly not a $50-$80 leather pair that can be worn in casual environments and they're certainly not a shower shoe that should only be worn at the beach. I actually feel these can be worn in any environment and still look good. Conclusion: I own more Columbia gear than I can count. That's not because of my age, but because of their quality. For an outdoor company that only offers two pairs of flip flop styles (but a TON of sandal styles) at any given time, they truly have offered the best product for the best price. May 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable flip flops I've been searching for a comfortable flip flop to wear on the boat and for casual wear. The Techsun flop is very comfortable after a full day on the boat or walking around town. April 28, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Larger than Life? Surprised when they arrived that they were larger than I expected, for my size. Wearing them, I am mostly happy and assume the extra rubber is for protection? If I were ordering them again, I would order the next size down. September 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by EXCELLENT FLIP FLOP EXCELLENT PRODUCT GREAT PRICE ..... COLUMBIA .... September 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product This is my second pair of Columbia flip flops. I wore the first pair for over 8 years. July 21, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by No as good as the old Sun Chill Thong I have had 6 pairs of Sun Chill Thongs and I love them, but they are over 5 years old and beat to death. Wanted new sandles for vacation. Could not find Sun Chill so bought these sandels. My old Sun Chill are size 10 so I bought size 10, they are to small for my feet and the fit is bad. I would like to get the old Sun Chill Thongs again, Were can I find Them, Can you make them again? July 19, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Men’s PFG™ Techsun™ Flip very comfortable, however did not hold up to the marine environment as advertised. I Think its the wrong type of glue that is used during assembly. July 15, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Blowout! Very comfortable sandal but didnt last more than 2 months of wear before blowing out the part between the toes. Looks like the adhesive / glue that was used failed and pulled up thru the sole. Will be returning these to Columbia to see what they think of it. Other than that, they are extremely comfortable and I do appreciate all the traction. Would of been the perfect flip flop for the campsite had the glue not failed. July 7, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by this product has great features,comfortable ware After waring this shoes for one month,the pain in my husban's feet and legs went away. We have gone through four pairs of these. The problem being that if they get wet for a long time the soles seperate. The manfucture puts a layer of paper between he soles and when the papers gets wet the glue fails. My husband loves them so much we now take them to a shop that glues them back together. Good shoes just keep them dry. July 3, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Flip Flop I have been wearing Reef flips for years and got tired of spending the money...have had these for a couple weeks and love them. They're very comfortable after the first couple of days and I won't be purchasing another pair of Reef's again. June 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Decent Sandals Although these sandals fit snugly as my feet are fairly thick, they are quality made, and the tread on the bottom works very well on wet surfaces. June 24, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Soles came off These are my second pair of Columbia flips, I wear them all the time. My first pair lasted 4 years before the thong broke on one foot. These did not make it a year before the whole sole came unglued on both feet. Disappointed with Columbia on these, usually like their products and I do like these. They are comfortable, have good arches for sandles and fit well but they fell apart. Don't think I will buy these again. June 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by FLIPS NICE FLIPS THEY DO FIT A LILLTE SNUG June 21, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great outdoor sandal These sandals aren't the prettiest on the market, but they are tough, rugged, and comfy. They are the perfect set of sandals to slip on after a long day on your feet. I was particularly impressed with the sole, which is well made and has great tread. June 7, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by good shoe Very comfortable and functioning for the uses that I have used them for. Also they seem very dependable and durable. June 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extremely Comfortable excellent pair of sandels and fits true to size. May 29, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rugged Sandals?! Growing up near the beach in FL, I am used to spending lots of time in sandals. These are among the nicest I've owned. The band was a bit tight and took a week or so to break in, but now they are comfortable. They feel quite durable and have very good traction in the Adirondack terrain. This is the most rugged sandal I have ever owned. May 6, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value Very comfortable with great support for flip-flops. Good traction, feet don't slip around on the insole. Good looking too! Highly recommended! April 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfortable Very comfortable sandals. This is my third pair. I've had very good luck with Columbia sandals in the past so this purchase was a "no-brainer". They were recommended by a Columbia representative and I'm sure glad I took her advice. April 9, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Techsun Flip III Review I love these flip-flops. Comfortable, hard wearing and good looking, they work in all kinds of settings, around the house, on the beach, fishing. This is the second pair I've had, the first ones lasted a couple of years and finally gave up the ghost where the sole split in two although I've repaired them with some gorilla glue and still use them at the pool! Highly recommended. April 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by mens techsun flip III i have flat feet so the support from these flip flops are great! March 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality Product however too small for my wide foot! Great Quality flips, however I have a wide foot so I have to return them. Make sure if you have a wide foot to look for another brand of flip/flops. March 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfy even for a big man! I took a chance and ordered these for my son who is a big man, 6'4", 300+ lbs., size 15 shoe. He tells me they are very comfortable and he really likes the way they look. I was just happy to find a flip-flop type sandal in his size that offered some support! I hope they hold up well over time! February 17, 2012
