Rated 4 out of 5 by PAR77 from My favorite shorts These shorts are great for any type of fishing that you will be doing. They do run a little big, but they are the most comfortable shorts ever in my opinion. You can't go wrong with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LETSG0WVU from Best Board Shorts I've Ever Owned Great board shorts. Nice stretch material so there is plenty of give. Don't get tight like older board shorts. Material is great and dries fast. Zipper pocket with bottle open and line cutting tool were a nice surprise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KriswithBiste from Great fitting swim short They fit great, look great, wear well, no issues and I have worn them a lot. Side pocket can fit my large phone too. Yes, it has a bottle opener, which is great as an adult, but maybe says the wrong thing to a kid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FishDeLo from Great Swim gear SO I'm a pocket guy. I've GOT to have pockets, no matter what, even on my swim trunks. No weird mesh liner inside the shorts, which is a plus because that really just becomes uncomfortable over time. The fit is SLIGHTLY small and even though the front closure just looks like it's just a string tie, it has velcro too and also what I would call a "privacy" flap. See the pictures. Now the pocket has a "keychain" bottle opener, line cutter attached. Honestly I'm not sure how I feel about that. I'll have to see if I use it or if it's just an annoyance. If I decide it's annoying I'm sure my wife can remove it without destroying these swim trunks. Only thing I can complain about is that it doesn't have a butt pocket, just a side pocket. The side pocket is good sized and it zips closed so I'll be ok with it. Like I said, I'm a pocket guy. I need more than one pocket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ShawD from Great shorts Shorts are great, they feel and look good. Awesome that they come with a bottle opener/line cutter also! They seem to be a little smaller than expected though. If I bought them again knowing how they fit, I would have gone up one size but they are still good shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BlueFin from Columbia PFG - Awesome Product I have been a religious Columbia PFG product user for a long time. The PFG line is extremely durable and last a very long time. The SPF shirts, board shorts and regular shorts are all high quality, fashionable and provide that perfect look whether you're fishing or hanging out with friends. also love some of the unique additions like the bottle opener and line cutter on the board shorts. Always come in very handy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by woodcreeper from love these board shorts my new favorite board shorts. Super comfortable, quick drying, and the line cutter has already come in very handy. They are a little big, so I have to cinch them down tight. I would probably go with a size smaller next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jblay from No better bathing suit The best bathing suit/ board shorts you can buy. All equipped for cracking a fresh brew with the bottle opener or retying with the line cutter. Patterns are nice too, but need more patterns. I hope Columbia doesn't stop making this style of shorts. These shorts are a little smaller in the waist than the terminal tackle shorts. If have a pair of the terminal tackle shorts I would probably go a size up unless you like them a little snug. The terminal tackles are big on me and the same size in these shorts fit perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by John22 from Columbia board shorts These shorts are beyond comfortable and the technology that helps them bead off rain water and they don't stain if I accidentally sit in mud after a good surf in the gulf I love them and I'm definitely ordering more

Rated 5 out of 5 by Schermy from Great board shorts Stylish and comfortable. Fit well anddry fast. Not sure why they have a bottle opener tethered to them, but thankfully they're on simple loop cord to remove and now used for car keys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lone37 from Really love material These are wonderful shorts. The only issue I had was the bottle opener needs to be removed before going in saltwater or you end up with rust on shorts
