Men's PFG Terminal Tackle™ Short is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This products features are awesome The pocket on the side with the tough nylon and button work really well for pliers and things like that. The bottle opener is always a plus. Security zip up pocket is great as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They run 1 size small I wear a 30 (waist) in just about everything. But the 30 here is about 1 size small which gives me a muffin top. I realize they likely did this to keep it tight while swimming, but for that purpose I much prefer a board short style criss-cross string or some elastic so I can adjust the waist size accordingly to be comfortable while relaxing and tighten it up if I'm going to be in the water. It's a shame as I really like everything else about the shorts. The 4 way stretch material is fantastic and I wish all shorts were made of this, the bright chill blue color is fun for vacations, the pocket is great (which usually aren't on typical boardies) and the line cutter/bottle opener thingy is a nice touch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MEN'S PFG TERMINAL TACKLE™ SHORT These shorts are AWESOME! The 50 UV sunblock is my primary reason I purchased. They are EXTREMELY comfortable. The fabric stretches, zip pockets for secure storage, and dry out within 15-30 mins after fully submerging them in water. Highly recommended by someone who enjoys fishing, camping, and outdoor activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Touch These shorts are very comfortable and I will not buy another pair without the stretch material that these have. They are very functional and dry fast when wet. I was not expecting the little surprise in the pocket, nice touch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! The material in these shorts are AMAZING! I bought two pairs and I will defiantly be buying more. These shorts do run small. I usually wear a size 32 but after reading the reviews I decided on purchasing a size up (34) and they fit PERFECT! I do recommend purchasing a size up to avoid size exchanging. Going to be using these a lot for fishing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels Like Wearing Nothing At All! The first few times I wore these shorts, I literally had to do a self pad down to make sure I actually had shorts on! I love the comfort and versatility of these shorts! They perform great on/near the water and also look great for a casual night out. In the Texas heat, these short's thin breathable material outperforms heavy cotton shorts and are very quick to dry. My first pair of these shorts were the COLLEGIATE NAVY, SUNSET RED color, but I'll definitely be looking by to add another color to my collection. To prevent any chance of the included tethered bottle opener/line cutter from damaging the shorts, I put it in the zip-closed security pocket and make sure the zipper is fully closed before putting these shorts in the washing machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pair of shorts! These are a great pair of shorts to wear when you are going to be around the water or anywhere you might be getting wet. I bought them because I like to wear boardshorts when around the beach/water but all of my boardshorts only have one pocket which is not enough to hold my keys, phone, and wallet. These have more pockets so I can carry all my stuff and still be water-ready. My review is 4 stars only because I haven't had a chance to see how durable they are...

I’m now in the process of going to all Columbia clothes! My wife loves them, my kids love them, and I love them! Columbia is great quality clothes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good old Columbia functionality This is my first pair of Columbia shorts, usually wear the old cotton shorts, and needed something that was breathable, and functional. These do run small so get next size up or will be too tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Around Shorts These are a great product with many uses. Great for a hike, that turns into a swim, and to dry by a fire. The fabric on these shorts drys really fast and is very light for a good summer hike. I bought these when i lived in Florida and worked perfect for the humidity and heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shorts from Columbia Love them... only thing that I don't like is that the zipped pocket on the right side of the pants should be big enough for a large smart phone and it is not.
Date published: 2017-12-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite shorts by far!! I bought these shorts because I do a lot of work outside, around the water and can get pretty messy. I've always found Columbia gear to be quality and these shorts are no different. They fit great, look great and have ample pockets that are deep or zip shut to keep all my stuff where it needs to be. I wear them fishing, cycling, working or just lazying around the house. I plan on buying at least one more pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Terminal Tackle Line My husband loves the Terminal Tackle Line from the shirts to the pants. We recently bought the shorts in gray and the next week I had to buy 2 more pairs. They are soft, stretch with you and look good on. The only thing I would change is the colors around the pockets. My husbands wears his for every occasion and it would be nice if the pockets did not stand out with a separate color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT SHORTS!!! Out of all the shorts I've worn, Columbia has been my favorite. Now they come with an awesome bottle opener. More color varieties would be good such as kaki. Still another good pair of Columbia shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the ticket! I don't know why I waited to order these shorts. The fit is perfect, the fabric very comfortable and they are very functional. I would consider these the perfect summer shorts, great look, suited for the water lifestyle combined with the added feature of a bottle opener/line cutter. My only suggestion would be to add a tan/khaki color to the collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Shorts Great lightweight shorts for south Florida. The bottle opener attached to the pocket is a little annoying as it won't stay in the pocket. Other than the bottle opener great shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shorts I'm typically a board shorts kind of person, but I purchased these because I needed something that could wear for nicer occasions with a polo. As it turns out these are as comfortable as any shorts I own, and I now wear them for outdoors activities too. The polyester/elastane fabric does a great job of keeping me cool, comfortable and protected from the sun. I've already placed an order for these in multiple colors.
Date published: 2017-03-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts I am a professional fisherman ad wear these shorts daily. I'm usually a size 32 and I bought both 32 and 34s both fit. The 34s are a little loose at the end of the fishing day. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fishing/Beach/Surf/Boat/Golf Shorts Living in Florida, I look for sturdy construction, Light fabric that holds up to salt/fresh water & outdoor wear & tear... that is COOL! As in great wearing in HOT weather. These fit the bill. These shorts have one cargo pocket on the right side & a handy bottle opener & Line cutter that is great when fishing off shore & cutting heavier line up to 100lb test. If I could change one thing, I would wish for another cargo pocket on the left side too, but I'm told these are sharp looking shorts and definitely my new favorites. I liked them so much I bought my 73 yr old Dad a pair for golfing - which he loves them as he walks. And a friend that fishes for his birthday. A must have for summer sports and casual outings when you want to look good and stay cool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts These are my new favorite short. Comfy enough to lounge in, nice enough to wear out, function AL enough for anything. While I couldn't wear the silver ridge in this size these I could so I'd say just a little small. Bottle opener was a nice touch I didn't know about when purchasing. Love these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Husband is delighted These shorts fit him perfect. He is full figured size 34 and some of the other button up shorts did not fit good. These were cut nicely and they have 4-way stretch, which he loves. The grey and blue trim are so nice he wore them to dinner and looked dressed up.
