Men's Global Adventure™ Short is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! i've tried a lot of shorts and not only do these fit right and give you mobility, but they always look ready to go. Not heavy and stiff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shorts ever? These shorts are terrific. The fabric always looks smooth and wrinkle free- almost like dress pants. But they're also really comfortable, and stretchy. I'll be buying another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At home in the city or woods These shorts are very comfortable, dry quickly, and are light weight. These shorts are not as bulky as some cargo shorts and are made from a material that allows them to stretch. I wear them in the water, woods, and around town. Some of my favorites!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Global adventure for the win These shorts are outstanding! After searching every sporting goods store in town with no luck I finally ordered them online. Shipping was fast, ordered on Saturday and received them Tuesday. I'm a 38 in most other styles/brands and these are just a little bigger then most. I love the stretch and feel of the fabric. The fit of the shorts is great with a belt and length is just above knees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Men need more shorts like these! Need more colors to select! Just buy one pair of these shorts and you will want to get a few more. To find men's shorts as comfortable as these is unheard of! MEN NEED MORE SHORTS LIKE THESE! The 4-way stretch is the only factor to a comfortable pair of shorts or pants and there aren't enough men's clothing with this feature. Movement is so much better. The material these shorts are made of is SPACE AGE! The material feels like silk, but stretchy silk, and it does not snag at all! It is more durable than regular cotton shorts, I don't know how they did it. And to top it off they do not cling to you with static, liquids just roll off mostly, and it blocks UV rays supposedly, its beyond incredible! The pockets are lined with a very strong mesh liner so they actually double as air vents to make these even cooler! These shorts can be worn as office wear (if your office allows shorts), hiking shorts, carpenter work shorts, swimming shorts, or even as pajamas I am not kidding! I am going to be purchasing a few more, I just wish there were more colors to select. The only thing that would make the shorts better I think would be to change the button on the waist to a snap closure, buttons usually fall off after a long time, but we'll see, maybe columbia is just better made. And the shorts could do without the buttons on the back pockets, the material isn't cheap that the pockets will loose their shape ever or hang open. Thank you columbia for the great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from these shorts are great for hot humid regions I am in golf course managment, and these shorts not only look acceptable for high end golf clubs (no baggy or clunky side pockets or crazy sewing designs) but they are great for hot and humid weather. the thin fabric breaths great and light to moderate rain does not stand a chance! the pockets are like in the swimtrunks you had growing up, mesh, but that helps with keeping you cool. and they are deep enough that your keys or whatever you have will not fall out. I wear a waist size of 30 and these feel more like 29, but still comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice feel to the material. Bought these shorts for guiding and golfing. They are clean lines and have a bit of stretch for an active day. Will dry quick.
