Men's Washed Out™ Short is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shorts for the summer My to go shorts for starting my summer weekend. Comfortable, not baggy, enough pockets for work and personal phone and car key. Walking on the city street or beach equally comfy. enjoying so far

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lightweight short I bought these because I was looking for something lighter weight than the standard khaki short material without being a polyester wicking type material. These shorts definitely are that. They are lightweight without that slick feel of most polyester shorts. They fit loose but not baggy. They are good to wear with a polo or tee shirt. I do wish they carried them in a few other colors.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Shorts The Washedout Shorts seem promising at the start. However the material is easily torn or shredded by pretty much anything. I have owned 2 pairs and they have both ripped. The material is lightweight and they feel great to hike, swim, or casually wear around town. I doubt there is any ripstop feature to the material, which is strange because it was 2016 when I bought them but maybe that's too high of a standard. My second pair just got ripped up by a front loading washing machine or dryer. Just goes to show the durability of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts I was looking for shorts that were lightweight and comfortable on those hot summer days. I certainly found them. Couldn't be happier with my purchase and will be purchasing more columbia clothing in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Shorts These are my absolute favorite shorts period. I have had this pair for about a year now and finally figured out what they were called so I could order another pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good shorts, a little small I loved the cut and fabric of these shorts, and nice colors. Unfortunately the 30 was smaller than most 30's that I wear, and the 32 was far too large. Wish they made a 31.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bread and butter These have become my bread and butter shorts, so to speak. They fit well, are functional, look nice, and have a slight ruggedness that says "I like to play in the dirt". I do wish the quality was a little better, as the stitching on some of the seams combined with this light cotton material may be a public embarrassment waiting to happen. However, I love the lightweight fabric and more than willing to roll the dice with a potential crotch rip. I would definitely recommend these as an all-around casual short with a slight sporty factor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features and wears well Fit and function really rock with the Columbia Brewha II. These have been my go to shorts for many years. Mostly I wear them to work and find them comfortable And airy (a plus in our humid environment). And they wear and last a long time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect These shorts came out of the package perfect and ready to go. Typical Columbia style and functionality. Going back for more colors because these shorts go anywhere from golf course to the trails. Way to go......Again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Comfortable These shorts fit true to size and are extremely comfortable and light weight. Also seemed to have a 'breathable' quality to them as well which is always nice. Would recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would recommend a pass I purchased two pairs of these short. First time wearing them I walked to my couch sat down for twenty minutes then stood up. The fabric had ripped from the waist to the cuff down one side of the back. Might as well be made of tissue paper. I'm afraid to wear the other pair in public, I don't want to be charged with indecent exposure if they are the same as the first pair. Very poor quality material. For the sake of common decency don't buy these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite pair of shorts I generally don't purchase clothes online, because you can never really tell how they will fit, but I had two pair of these shorts that I wore into the ground after 3yrs of wear. They were my favorite shorts, so I was upset when I finally wore them out. I was so happy when I found these. They fit true to size, they are light weight and comfortable. They are the perfect summer short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts for hot weather These shorts are great for hot humid days. The soft poplin dries fast and keeps you cool. The sizing is traditional pant based so one size biger than your jeans.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the cost Shorts seem to be good quality but a bit lighter weight than I had expected. Good for the price and should provide long causal use. Fit just fine and arrived quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Shorts I absolutely love these shorts. I had a pair that I literally wore out from so much use. They are comfortable, fit well, and are lightweight. I wear them for everything from Golf to casual outings, to church. They really are fantastic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Must not be great quality! My husband loved these but had an incident where one of his two pairs ripped. I assumed it was a fluke and bought him 3 pairs for his birthday in June. Out of 3 pairs only one remains in tact. He is not hard on his clothes as he rarely gets out of his work clothes. It is now the beginning of August and the pair he is wearing literally just ripped from top to almost bottom and not on a seam. I am very disappointed in the quality and will think twice before buying Colombia shorts again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I took a chance on these shorts and really enjoyed them the first two times I wore them. They fit perfect, were super comfortable and dried very quickly. BUT, the third time I wore them them split right in the seat. Not even on the seam, but in the middle of the fabric. I am not a big dude. I weigh a shade under 160 and am not acrobatic at all. How these shorts split, only the Good Lord knows. These shorts fall short (sorry,no pun intended) of what I've come to expect from Columbia. Like the title says, I'm very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Columbia shorts I have ever owned These are the best shorts I own! They are light weight and comfortable as well as look nice! I wish they had more colors available I already have two!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Washed Out Short Very nice and lightweight. They dry fast if they get wet. I like the orange color, it goes well with any white Columbia button up shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts! I am 5'-5" on a good day and finding a comfortable pair of shorts that doesn't run past my knees has been extremely difficult until now. The 8" seam length is perfect. I couldn't be any more pleased with these shorts!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good shorts but sizing was inconsistent I bought two pairs of these shorts. One pair fits perfectly however, the other is too small in the waist for me to wear.
Date published: 2016-06-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Quality. Thin Fabric. Decent pair of shorts. Fabric is a bit on the thin side. Should be nice when the temps and humidity climb. Makes me wonder how durable they will be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Everyday Shorts For some reason, I find it very difficult to find a good pair of everyday shorts. I searched for some time and found these on Columbia's website. I've had them a couple weeks and have worn them several times and am very pleased with my purchase. I'm going to give them another couple weeks and if they hold up I'll probably buy 1-2 more pairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great shorts They fit a little small (a 36 fits like a 35 in my case). They look great and feel great. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts I'm kinda thin and 6 feet tall and the 8inch inseam fits me great. The shorts are good looking enough khakis to wear anywhere but they are extremely light and wick water some.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for taller slimmer guys I am tall and slim and not a fan of short shorts above my knees by a foot or overly large shorts These shorts fit great (not tight or too baggy), right at the knee in length. Very lightweight and I don't get hot when walking to and from campus on warm day. I have two pairs of these in different colors and will probably buy a few more in different colors!
Date published: 2016-03-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shorts! I love the light weight feel and yet still so very durable. I hope you NEVER discontinue these shorts. I will continue to buy these shorts every couple of months.
