Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bahama cruise & Columbia Shorts Just took my first cruise to Nassau, Stirrups Cay, and Balmoral islands.knew it would be hot and humid so I loaded up with 6 new Columbia shirts and shorts. Everything was perfect, incredibly comfortable and stylish! Met people on my cruise and in Nassau ask where I got my clothes. Told them Columbia... but not the country! Only the best clothing manufacturer to ever come around!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest All Around Short EVER! I have been a Columbia customer for many years, and this is the one item that I buy on a regular basis! These shorts are roomy, sturdy and very comfortable. I wear them on a daily basis. Whether you are out fishing or just cruising around, these shorts are perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all around fishing shorts These shorts are by far the best fishing shorts I’ve ever owned, and I do not regret purchasing them one bit. Matter of fact, these will be my go to shorts for fishing in the warm seasons. They even provide protection from the sun, and they stay comfortable for hours with enough room in the seat and crotch area for bending and sitting. The little extra room in all the right places makes the real difference between a successful day fishing and an unsuccessful one. I have two pair now, and I will be purchasing more in the future! Happy fishing fellas! Also, the fit is greatly proportional, plenty of pockets for storage, and with me being 6’2.5”, the shorts are not too short in length because they sit just about 2 inches above my knee which is ideal for shorts in my opinion. Which means the length is not too long or too short; they are just right! Enjoy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Happy with purchase The amount of strings showing and the quality of the product is lacking after 2 washings. I will look for another brand probably. Also, tired of all the emails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Features and Fit I travel to Philippines. Great people but have to be smart in foreign countries. I carry a wallet with chain. The loop on the pants is nice to have for this. Hot & Humid there and these feel great. 44 Waist and ordered 2X and fit just right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brewha III shorts - big These shorts are cut right for the big athletic type male int that they have a generous seat and large leg openings. My thighs are over 27" and I still have leg clearance. The shorts also have optional leg length which can make or break your look you are wanting to achieve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit for a big man I love these shorts! The fit is perfect and that's not always the case for big sizes. I live by the beach and I wear these shorts all the time. I just ordered two more from Columbia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right fit for me! I couldn't be happier since at Columbia direct I get the size and color that I want and on sale.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not A True Big & Tall Fit Good functional fishing shorts but they are not cut "big" and definitely small for the sizes shown. Big & Tall sizes should be full cut and when designed for outdoor use they need extra space for movement. Columbia does a great job with "fits true to size" on their fishing shirts and shoes but not on shorts and pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pair of shorts by far! I own several styles of Columbia shorts and these are the favorites. The added elastic section gives more mobility, comfortably. Packs well, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair of shorts These shorts are just as described. Also, they wear well, are comfortable and look good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Men's Brewha II Short - Big Superior. I am so happy they fit me so well as a big guy and they are so well made. I love them so much I just ordered another!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Men's Brewha Short Bought my husband these shorts a few years ago and now these are the only shorts he will wear. He loves the comfort and look as well as the price. They hold up very well over time.
Date published: 2016-07-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get these "shorts" True shorts that fall mid thigh to slightly below, unlike cargo shorts that fall at the knee or below. They run a bit small as I am usually a 2x to 3x guy, but have found the 4x are the best fit. Wish there were more color options. I wear these all spring, summer and fall for work and play. Side pocket intended to hold beverage is actually a great cell phone pocket. As long as Columbia makes these shorts I will buy them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shorts Best fitting shorts, comfortable and durrable
Date published: 2015-09-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Short Very rugged and dependable short with lots of room in the legs. The slight split on the side and short inseam makes it easy to move. I have worn this style for around 3 years and only ordered again because my current pairs have become stain from using them fishing and in my work shop. They are still usable, but he wife wanted me to order new for going out with her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shorts ever I bought these shorts years ago and they were completely falling apart. But they were the most comfortable shorts I ever had. Most shorts now are long but these are above the knees. My family kept after me to throw those shorts out and I was finally able to do so only after receiving my new ones. I am extremely happy with these shorts.
Date published: 2015-08-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Material The material is a little lighter than expected, miss the Hommes, they were thicker material. Either way Columbia put out a good product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally found shorts that got my husband In this world of cargo shorts it is so hard to find functional, nice shorts for someone wih shorter legs. They fit nicely, look nice and are not excessively long! It is easy to find tall items but hard to find items that are big independent from tall. Glad I found these!!
Date published: 2015-08-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good shorts, sturdy fabric This is a good purchase. I am happy about the choice. The shorts fit perfect, but just a little bit shorter than my expectation. Unfortunately I did not have time to check the endurance, but the fabric seems to be sturdy.
Date published: 2015-07-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too small and too short These shorts are to small and too short and I'm only 5'9". I'll be returning them. I've bought other Columbia shorts that fit well so I'm disappointed by the inconsistency in sizing.
Date published: 2015-07-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from great fit and looks Perfect for golfing and outdoor activity
Date published: 2015-07-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what is was looking for For a big guy with short legs this fits perfectly. The cut is right so that the crotch doesn't hang down to your knees.
Date published: 2015-06-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Men's Brewha II shorts First time to try these shorts. I will most certainly be wearing these anytime I want to wear shorts. The quality is good, the short hem length of 7 fit perfectly just above the knee. Will buy them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shorts for a Golfer I don't fish but I do play golf and these shorts are great on the course whether you walk or ride in a golf car/cart. I bought my first pair at the Pacific Whale Foundation store on Maui a few years ago and now they are the only short I have for golf or everyday wear. They fit well and allow you to move around without binding.
