Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy them The shorter length isn't quite right for a tall guy, that's my fault however they are still great shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement pair, but not because they failed... My beau and I went out for lunch and were sat in a booth that had been freshly varnished. My side was alright, but he had orange stain all over the back of his shorts and shirt wjen he stood up. This new pair of shorts is replacing the ones that were ruined by the varnish. Worth nothing however, is that the damaged shorts were of extremely good quality - I tried everything from rubbing alcohol to acetone to goo gone to mineral spirits to straight up gasoline to try to get those stains out, and the shorts remained absolutely colorfast - I just gave up. For aquamarine blue to be so durable was a pleasant surprise, and made the decision to buy an identical replacement pair a very easy one. Now, if I could just get Bubba Gump's to reimburse me for them!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Crotch huggers! I was shopping for some shorts to wear to work. Wanted a fabric that would hold up as well as the build. Hit up my local Athletic big box stores and Bass Pro. Tried these on at Bass Pro and it was a disaster! Small fit doesn't begin to describe these. The waist, maybe. The rise, without a doubt! I walked out of the fitting room and my wife told me to turn right around and and take those horrible things off. Gentlemen, if you like your "junk" bulging out for the world to view then these are for you. If you are have a bit of modest, then you may want to leave these on the shelf. I really wanted to like these, but at the end of the day the fit is horrible. Columbia, not everyone wears their pants/ shorts below the crack of their butt. Nor do they enjoy singing falsetto. Lengthen the rise for true men.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well-made, but a weird fit These are well-made, light, cotton shorts that are good for lounging around or yard work or fishing but they have a weird fit. Am wear a 34 in everything Columbia but I could barely get these size 34's to button up. I tried the 36 and they won't stay up on my waste. Seems like they have a sizing problem with these particular shorts. No worry...get the silver ridge stretch shorts which are the best shorts I've ever worn and fit much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shorts! I recently purchased a pair of the 6" Bonehead shorts and I absolutely love them. I wore them on a charter out of Key West and they are fantastic. They are so comfortable that they've become my go-to shorts for everyday wear. Definitely go 6" inseam. They're great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable These shorts are by far the comfiest shorts I own. They would be my favorite, but they are about an inch too big on the waist (34) for me. I have size 34 on all of my shorts and these just run a little big for some reason. I'm going to try shrinking them because I'm too lazy to ship them back lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look These shorts wash and dry wonderful. We found they fit true to size, and do not run small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beware of flashing I own the 6" inseam version and I be lieve theyre a bit shorter than 6". Always wear underwear with these!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great looking shorts Perfect casual shorts..really like the color lines. Seemed to run a tad bit small. I had to go up to a 40w. The 38" was to snug, and I was nervous after a first wash that they would shrink

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Amazing product for formal ware or a day on the water, amazing. Very durable. go for the six inch

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bonehead Shorts Best shorts i've ever owned. They can be worn casually; the 6" shorts are the perfect length; and the thin fabric keeps you cool while looking good. Highly recommended. Only improvement would be the addition of more colors.
