Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very sturdy shorts! The Brewha II woman's short is great because it is made of heavy duty cotton with big pockets that hold my gardening tools, phone and other items I need for my job. August 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love em Only thing wrong was that stated shipping would be free for joining and that didn't hold true. August 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shorts I like the fabric and fit of the shorts. I have been unable to find this cargo weight fabric at any other store. It is great for backpacking, around the house or shopping. My only complaint is the waist is too big. Size 4 waist says 27 1/2 to 28 1/2 inches. My waist is 30 inches (not quite Scarlet O'Hara) I have worn a size 4 for 45 years, so I ordered a size 4. The shorts fit well, but the waist is 31". So I ripped open the waist and took out 1 1/2 inches of the elastic and stitched up the waist again. Fits great! I ordered 2 more pair and redid the waist in both of them. August 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for Any Activity I bought these shorts to use when gardening. I especially appreciate that the rise is deep enough that, being a mature gardener, I don't have to worry about the shorts falling off and/or riding down when bending over. Thanks, Columbia, for remembering those of us who prefer such coverage when designing pants/shorts! August 2, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A nice short for vacations A good pair of shorts. I bought them in three colors for a cruise and they worked out well. They are more expensive than other shorts I have found but the quality is good. The fabric is too heavy for hiking but great for walking and sightseeing. The material does not wrinkle. July 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Welcome surprise These were the first shorts I ever ordered on line. I have a pear shape so it is very hard to find shorts that fit properly. These fit great. June 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best shorts ever! These are the best shorts I have ever had. They fit well and have lots of pockets, something that is lacking with most women's shorts. December 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Work, outdoors & Bicycling Love shorts by Columbia and always pleased with the comfort and stylish look. Very functional for all the activities I do. December 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best shorts ever! This is my second pair of Brewha II shorts. I love them. They are exactly what I need fishing and also look good for casual outings. Do not change anything about these shorts. December 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these shorts I have ordered the fossil and navy colors in these shorts and wear them all the time. They are not too short and not too long. I do a lot of golfing and the leg pockets are perfect to carry golf tees. The fit is awesome. If they came in green and gray, I would buy more. September 14, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Impractical Design and Worthless Function Columbia took a perfectly designed product for in the old 2012-2013 PFG Brewha™ II Short and replaced it with a version that can be purchased at any sports outlet for a much cheaper price. This new shorts design is not in keeping with what I believe to be the strongest asset of Columbia sportswear......rugged and practical!!! The old design provided much more storage for necessary items (ie., cell phone or other emergency item in the side pouch pocket, front thigh pockets perfect for power bars or minor first aid items, rear zip pocket for ID's and contact information). Columbia caved and produced a product that any female outdoor enthusiast would reject and go back to the old fanny pack for storage!!!! Useless!!!!! July 14, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not the Brewha II of 2012, 2013 I want the 2012 2013 design. I loved the fit, the pockets on the front, and the perfect phone pocket on the hip. That style also had the right length and the right height above the hip. Bring back the original brewha 2. April 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bruha runs small I am normally an extra large in most shorts. These must run small because they did not fit at all. I liked them and would have used them but instead gave them to my daughter who is on the small size of a large. January 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great I am a rural mail carrier in Texas, and wear shorts about eight months of the year. Bought the same style 2 or 3 years ago, and love them. Fit great, comfortable, wash well and no iron. November 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I ordered one in every color! These shorts are great. The durability is so good - similar ones have lasted years of heavy use. I like the medium length as it is hard to find shorts that are not Bermudas or short shorts. They are casual enough to go hiking and play sports, but I would wear them with a nice blouse to a summer party. Thanks Columbia for providing such great consistency in your products! September 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another style to try if you love the Brewah short. I love the original Brewah PFG short. But this is a good alternative. I want to see you produce it in Denim. Not a stupid skirt. I want the denim short to return. The short is good looking, a little more tailored. Good fit and comfortable. Not too short. August 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Flattering utility short The fabric of these shorts is nice and substantial, not light weight, can be dressy or casual. The small amount of elastic in the waist help the fit so there's no gapping in back and make it a flattering fit. The pockets are a plus - nice and deep for holding cell phones and other necessities. July 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great working shorts useful pockets, sturdy construction, perfect for working in the nursery in the summer. July 11, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not As Rugged;Rise Is Too Short I've ordered this short before, but this version of it is a pale version of the original, which was made of a tougher, more rugged fabric. Also, the rise seems to be shorter, and it is just not as comfortable. (I am 5'3' and weigh 130.) Also, what happend to the extra pocket? I'll wear these, but they fall short of th usual standards for ruggedness and function that I have come to expect from Columbia. May 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brewha Shorts Love these shorts - durable, comfortable, good fit... Will buy more. Great outdoor, active short. April 16, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by If you liked the old brewha If you liked the Brewha II shorts that were sold last year DO NOT BUY THESE. The waist is looser and the stretch is in a different place on your waist. That changes the whole fit. One back pocket is gone and what used to be the front pockets are now more to the side. If you put your phone in them they drag down the waist where the stretch is. Having different colors is good-don't think the material is quite the same either. The old ones washed very well but I intend to send these back before I wash them. How can you use the same name for a product and the same price but have an inferior, differently constructed product without warning the consumer? March 17, 2013
