Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable shorts These shorts are ridiculously comfortable, while still being breathable and light (great in hot and/or humid weather.) The extra length at the inseam allows for sitting down with out a fear of "exposing" one's self. The fabric and mesh pockets dry fast if caught in rain or splashing waves. The fifth side thigh pocket is great for a small (small) sunglasses case or id's or cc's. Amazing shorts, I bought these because of the new color, these are my 8th pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable shorts ever I wear these shorts for everything from wade fishing to a wedding. The stretch the shorts have give great flexibility while getting in and out of the boat while wadding and the dry very quick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Shorts My favorite pair of shorts Columbia makes
Date published: 2017-08-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for golfing as well I bought these specifically to wear when playing golf. I wanted something lightweight but that would look good with a polo shirt. These shorts fit both those criteria. Time will tell how well the material will last as it is thin. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a nice casual looking lightweight pair of shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most comfortable shorts you will ever need! The GRANDER MARLIN™ II OFFSHORE SHORT is the most comfortable pair of shorts I've ever owned. I like them so much, I bought 3 pair, and looking for the next color for my wardrobe. Very lightweight, thin, and stretchy shorts are great for any activity from fishing to casual family activities. If you do go fishing in these shorts, they will dry quickly, as the pockets are mesh with drain holes, and the material dries quickly as well. Overall, the most comfortable, versatile, durable, breathable shorts I've owned, and just love them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hook, line, and sinker I totally didn't need another pair of shorts. I was lured in by another sale. Columbia is very good at this. No buyer remorse this time though. These are the most comfy shorts I have. Will probably buy more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good shorts but run way too large. Ordered 34 inches, label says 34 inches, my tape measure and waist say 37 inches. Certainly recommend if the fit is correct.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best short I own Couldn't decide between these and the competition UA. So I ordered both and sent the others back. These seem to be better quality, more roomy and have a lot more stretch when you put your hands in your pockets. Again the BEST shorts I own. No need to try the others as I am the most picky person when it comes to fit and comfort. These are the ones ... pull the trigger and order 1 of every color and be done.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great shorts, but too short! Love these shorts and the material. However they are WAY too short. I am not even that tall of a guy at 6'0 and they were just too short for me. If they made them in a 12" inseam they would be fantastic!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful fabric. Purchased these for my husband. The pants are a full cut, almost baggy, very loose fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and feel! I bought a bunch of these for work. Working in a non-air conditioned warehouse i need something light and breathable. These are great! They are extremely light, breathable, and great quality. Ive caught them on pallets and other things and no rips. The pockets are huge and are mesh backed, which makes it hard to get some smaller stuff out, but not bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shorts This is the 4th pair of these shorts I have recently bought. They keep me cool in hot and humid Houston. I wear them fishing, golfing to the ball game and everywhere else possible. They are about the only shorts I wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fishing shorts This is my 2nd pair... i had to get another because the first pair are so comfortable..the zippered pocket is the perfect spot for your cellphone.. not for calls but for pics of the fish you catch

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Gold Standard of Shorts Love these shorts! In fact I own a pair in every color offered. Soft to the touch, stretch with your movement, pocket on the side to place my cell phone not to mention stain resistant with sun protection! Use those shorts for everyday casual wear and golf (use the side pocket to hold my extra golf ball - I lose quite a few). Buy, you won't regret.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mins PFG Grander Marlin II These shorts were exactly what I was looking for. A little less cargo short a little more dressy. They are high quality. The Columbia store in the Tangier Outlet mall was very helpful in finding the right short to match my requirement on line. I bought the first pair at the store and then bought three pair of the different colors online. Overall a very good shopping experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grander Marlin II Shorts I have ordered all the available colors of these shorts for my Man-friend. They are beautiful to wash and wear, hang so nicely, and make all parts of his body look awesome. So glad I discovered these. Benefits of the Sun Protection and stain resistance are also nice. I need more colors for future purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Shorts! These are my favorite pair of casual shorts! Lightweight and perfect for anything outside. They seem to hold up well (so far) doing things around the house, on the beach and near the river.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great fit I bought one pair and ordered another day after wearing them. The fit was true to size with a little stretch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Light Weight Shorts Nice light comfortable shorts. Smooth material, well made, good pockets. Like their Silver Ridge Cargo Shorts these run large, not "slightly small"as the site says. I bought my normal regular size 36 and had to return them for a size 34 which is just right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite shorts! These are now my new favorite shorts... Very comfortable they fit great... Love the feeling, they are very thin and cool in Florida!
