Men’s Ultimate ROC™ Short is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Pants By far, my favorite short pants are made by Columbia. Like the Ultimate Roc, I like that they have a variety of pockets that aren't bulging and bulky. They have a streamline look. The only reason I rated the quality "good" and not "excellent" is because they don't use metal zippers. I also wonder why so many clothing companies stop making odd sized waistlines at 31 inches. I am a 33 and always have to buy pants that are too big.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shorts These are some of the best shorts i have even worn. They are alittle different than the original ROC shorts from years past but still great quality shorts and last for a long time. Nice large pockets and the inseam is perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ultimate ROC shorts I purchased via the Friends and Family site. I am familiar with the shorts and find them as they are described. They are functional and having the option of two inseam lengths is a real plus. I would have given them a higher overall rating if it weren't for the price. Even using the Friends and Family discount, they came to the same price I could buy them at Dicks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from length is ok but waist is small great shortbut the waist size runs a tad small. also, the length could be a little longer. im 6'1" and it came a little above my knee. i think 12" long shorts are best for anyone 6' or taller.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from almost perfect soft, stain resistant, soft, durable, soft and well accessorized. why not a perfect short? 13" option would make it there

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pair of shorts These shorts have a great feel. They are soft to the touch, yet have a rugged outdoor look. They also are very roomy for the sizing. I would suggest these to anyone working or playing in the outdoors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost got it right I like this short, but the pocket design is awful. On the inside of the short the top and bottom pockets are sewn together, but not to the shorts on all sides. The pockets are sewn to the bottom of the short creating a area for your foot to catch when you put them on.
