Rated 1 out of 5 by Jhschultz 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 JBFla 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.

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!

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 btcrav2 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 EcoCraig 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pudelpointer 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 Dflo 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.

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 collegesenior 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!

These are a great pair of shorts. They are cotton poplin, but when I received them I was surprised by their lightness. They have nice movement and are very comfortable.

The fit is true to size and the material is not to light and not to heavy. Just right for hot/humid climate. Velcro on back pockets provide security for the average wallet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SummerCampPro Best Columbia Offers
These shorts are incredible! They are made of a light weight material that sheds water and stains easily but are still durable. Some shorts I have ordered from Columbia in the past have been a little transparent when wet but these shorts hide even the darkest of undergarments. I will be purchasing a full stock of these for my everyday use during the Texas Summer. The 8 inch inseam is a little long for my taste but I think that my coworkers appreciate it compared to the 6 inch shorts I was wearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Athe0n Best all purpose shorts
I am an athletic 5'9", 155 pound, seventeen year old, outdoor enthusiast. Finding clothing that fits, looks stylish, and holds up to abuse is a nightmare. I cannot tell you the amount of time I have devoted to finding clothing that will suit my myriad of vastly differing lifestyles (ranging from survivalist camping to boarding school to construction work).
Finally, I've found that happy medium. I purchased a pair of 30x10 in India Ink from a local Renys at the start of this summer, and I could not be happier with them.
Fit: This is my favorite part of these shorts. Very stylish, tight/tim fit that fits well at the butt and down through the legs. The 10" length is not too wide at the bottom, and cuts just above the Knee. A far cry from the tasteless wide-cut shorts that are so common today. They also seem to fit far better than any other styles of Columbia shorts that I have purchased which also claim "modern classic fit" While tight enough to look great, they are incredibly comfortable, and allow enough mobility to easily move and run in them (I've used them for a 10 mile trail run before).
Function: The make and build quality is very high, and I have had no issues with wear, despite heavy abuse. I do wear a belt with them however so as to not to put too much tension on the button (Its just a tad tight, but I haven't had any issues with it yet). The fabric is very light- but strong- keeping you cool in the summer, and drys very quickly, which is incredibly useful (ever spilled a drink on yourself? gone in 15 minutes). Even the pockets are deep, and easily accessible. The back pockets are worth mention, having a velcro closure, rather than the standard button. I actually really enjoy this, as it allows easy access, and I do not have to worry about popping a button when sliding down a rock or climbing a tree.
Overall, these are amazing. The perfect combination of style and practicality. They look great, feel great, and work great. I wear them everywhere and anywhere: in the woods, hiking, working carpentry, on dates, and to school. I will definitely be getting more.

These shorts are everything they are advertised to be. I wear mine primarily for work, however they are also great for going to town. They are very durable and stylish. As an added bonus, they dry very quickly. I will be buying more in the very near future.

I got these breezy shorts for my husband over a year ago and they have been his favorite shorts yet. He loves Columbia brand, and these are so light and such a comfortable fabric that they work for just about anything. I'm getting him another pair for his birthday this year!
