Men’s Flex ROC™ Short is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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 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 5 out of 5 by from Awesome shorts! Very well made and feel amazing. The 8” shorts are the perfect length. The perfect amoaunt of stretch in the material. Buying another pair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 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 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 4 out of 5 by from Great shorts for active wear Love the shorts. Very comfortable. Only issue is they run a size too large - need a belt to keep them up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit I am a little person and it’s hard finding shorts that fit and my grandmother bought a pair from a store and I loved how they fit so perfect so that made me look them up on your sight and bought all the colors you had.
