Men’s Boulder Ridge™ Cargo Short is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Men's Cargo shorts The shorts are good quality, but fit is definitely on the small side. A bit disappointed as I have several other Columbia cargo shorts that fit nicely.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from europebound I bought these for my son and husband for our Europe trip and the weight was right was they were short in the crotch and very uncomfortable for him! They had to be sent back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice cargo shorts The material was a little "stiffer" than I thought it would be. In between a stiff cotton and a very lightweight nylon feel. I like the 8 inch inseam for a cooler feel when the temperatures are higher outdoors. I felt the sizing was just a little small for what I normally wear. Probably not enough to change your normal ordering size! Other than that I really like the fit and comfort of these shorts

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality material with sleek design These shorts fit great and look good. They do get a little wrinkly if you don’t fold them after drying right away.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Short in Stride - A Bit Tight As a waist of 32" - I know to order a Medium in Columbia pants and shorts. The waist was perfect, as expected. I wasn't looking for a long pair of shorts, so I ordered the 8" inseam. However, I found that the stride was very short and made the shorts uncomfortably tight in the front. I'm not sure if the 10" inseam would have been better - but wanted to add that caveat. Perhaps scoring this a little high as I returned my pair - but the quality was top notch and the finishings were excellent. If you don't mind a shorter stride, these are great shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cargo short with true to size inseam I have a hard time finding 8" inseam shorts and Columbia delivers a great short that fits me better than others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boulder Ridge Cargo shorts The Boulder Cargo shorts are perfect for daily use. I have 4 pair. They hold a lot and don't seem to be full. I guess the cell phone and wallet get the most use - but they hold change, nails, screws, other stuff I use on the job. Highly recommend this product - hard to beat Columbia quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Shrinking shorts I bought two pair of these shorts. Washed them in cold water and air dried. Both pair shank badly. The tan more than the gray. Like 42s became 40 and cannot wear either. Wish I could return!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice style Like the ability to select a length. Purchased for a shorter man who has trouble with getting shorts of proper length.
