Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable These shorts are extremely comfortable. They have a little stretch in them that make them easy to move around in. They are great shorts to wear everyday and they look good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multi Function Best Short ever. Comfortable, for every occasion. The zipper on the right side is excellent to keep the money safe while traveling. Don't sweat at all. Good for the summer time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect summer short for the south These shorts run true to size and fit very well. I am 215lbs with an athletic build. My problem with most shorts/pants are; if they fit in the waist then they are to tight on my thighs. If they fit my thighs, they are to large in the waist. THEY FIT PERFECTLY and the stretch material gives just the right amount when needed, making them incredibly comfortable. I highly recommend these

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great short Runs slightly smaller than I'm used to. Both in length and short waisted. Otherwise good quality and very satisfied!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lightweight Shorts!! These shorts are great! They are lightweight, which is very important to me since I recently moved to AZ in June. It's been hot and these are so lightweight, they are wonderful. I would recommend these for anyone looking for nice looking, nice fitting, cool shorts for hot weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice travel shorts Very light weight; dressier than sports shorts; designed to dry quickly. Great for travel, with no sacrifice for everyday wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still great shorts but they moved the side pocket Still great, sharp looking shorts with stretchy reliable fabric, but this time Columbia moved what was a side horizontal pocket on the outside right thigh to a verticle pocket inside the right front pocket. This does not make sense because the old pocket would help keep your shorts from bunching up when sitting down. Maybe they were thinking it would be a good place to secure loose money, credit cards or IDs since it is too small for today smart phones. Other than the change of the 5th pocket, awesome shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Columbia Shorts Winner These are made of the same fabric as are their Grander Marlin Offshore Shorts ( check out the fabric description to see) which have been my favorites for a long time. These just don't wrinkle either, have deep pockets, clean easily, and are very lightweight and comfortable to wear. They do have a zip closed security pocket although it is really not big enough to hold a cellphone whereas the one on the Grander Marlin shorts is. You simply cannot go wrong with these for any use. I highly recommend both.
