Rated 3 out of 5 by from Size was way too small Good looking light weight cotton shorts. The size was too small at waist and all around. Sadly I had to return them and couldn't get them in another size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product at a Fair Price I purchased these pants as I was looking for lightweight shorts that are very comfortable. The fit is excellent and they are wearing well in the month that I have had them. The waistband has some stretch and makes the pants quite comfortable. The pants dry quickly and look great. They are a great short for golf at a much better price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great durability I bought these for my college aged son. He has been wearing these shorts for about 3 years now. He loves them so much he refuses to wear anything else. He also has been wearing the same shorts for about 2 years, and if not for the RIP he put in them he could still wear them. These are great for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second pair Without breaking the bank, these have to be some of the most comfortable shorts I have fished in. These shorts have stood up to water, dirt, fish, and hooks and have stayed strong and have proven durable while on the water and casual wear

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bonehead II Delivers I have enjoyed other Columbia shorts and was looking for a nice pair of "dress" shorts. These Bonehead II shorts delivered perfectly. Nice looking, comfortable pair of shorts that fit perfectly. Will definitely be back for more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice to find shorts that are short I have bought Columbia's "Washed Out" shorts in the past, but they were sold out, so I tried this Bonehead short instead. They seem very similar, except these are available in a 6" inseam which I really enjoy. As a short dude, I feel like I'm wearing capris when the shorts have a 10" inseam...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit This is the only short that I could find that gives you a selection on the length. I am 5'8" and most shorts are to long and rub on my knees, being able to get a 6" inseem fits me perfectly. I love the fabric and am going to buy more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bonehead short - sunset red Excellent fit, excellent color. Just what I expected! I am only 5'5" and needed a 6 inch inseam. These short are perfect. Thank you,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cut too small for me I ordered my usual size (34) in this short. The waist fit ok but the overall cut of the short is too slim for me and I'm a slender guy. Very short rise and not as much room for movement as I expected. I love the fabric and color but will return them due to the overall fit being too confining.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these. Light weight These are incredible for summer. Light weight and durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, versatile summer staple Purchased for my husband and he wears them ALL THE TIME. They look great and stylish while still being casual and comfortable for daily wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Durable I'm a zip line instructor so it's pretty hard to find shorts that are both durable and comfortable, with these shorts you don't have to compromise for either of those qualities. Very reasonably priced for the quality, I would definitely recommend this product for anyone with an active lifestyle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and classic Grabbed a pair of these in a jam and they have instantly become my favorite shorts.
