Men’s Flex ROC™ Short is rated out of 5 by 29.
Rated 4 out of 5 by SmokinJack from Nice shorts Nice and comfortable and very functional. I wish Columbia would focus more of their products from shorter males instead of big & tall dufuses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LOLady from They fit!! I have had a lot of trouble finding shorts for my husband that are practical, not overly "young" and--above all--fit. I love that you can order the different lengths because his legs apparently aren't as long as the average person so most shorts look way too long on him. And I like the colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cokernuts from Great pair of shorts Now that Columbia has put a bit of stretch in these short I don't think I will ever own a pair of anything else. Great features with the side phone pocket makes for a perfect short for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sturides from Flex ROC Short I've worn the regular ROC short for years and thought I would give the Flex ROC Short a try. They have a slightly slimmer cut than the traditional short but the sizing is still spot on. The Flex makes for a very comfortable fit. Have only worn them a few times but expect that they will hold up as good if not better than the traditional short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NiDT from Great fall shorts These shorts provided a nice fit and looked great. Their slightly heavier material of cotton will be a good choice during the coming fall season. Casual but still a bit dressier look.

Rated 1 out of 5 by lsp42 from Out of the bag, then right back in for return I usually really love my Columbia shorts, but these were really really disappointing. I ordered a pair of "Pilot Peak" and a pair of "Flex ROC" simultaneously in the correct waist size and they came and were both too tight in the crotch and legs. I'm not a large guy, but these were cartoonishly tight. I could not comfortably wear either pair of shorts. The waist measurement was accurate for both, but both were absurdly tight; they almost felt like bicycle shorts. I'm not sure who wears their shorts this tight but I'm not that person.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ljays from ROC flex fits nothing like regular Roc I have size 34 ROC shorts. I ordered, by mistake, the Flex ROC also in size 34. They slipped right off. Even butttoned and zipped I could pull them off. Returned them. Don't know what's in the FLEX but it causes them to run very large

Rated 2 out of 5 by hugewaist from huge shorts Ordered two pair of these shorts - some of which I've had for many years, however these were huge. Shorts measured 38 inches at waist but I ordered 35 inch x 10 inseam. All ordered were 38 inch huge - so all colors etc are wrong also. One inch variations occur but 3 inches is not even close. Staff said they have no way to measure products so you are on your own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shopping4Me from Go to Shorts Good design and features. Although the material tends to look old and worn very quickly, the fit, comfort, quality is top notch. Like the pockets that includes a zipper and velcro on the bakc to secure your belongings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mi5280 from Excellent shorts I’ve had the roc shorts for years but always found them too thick and hot. I tried the washed out short and it was lightweight but not very durable. So far these shorts fit and feel great. I wear them every day of the week and they are super comfortable.
