Men's PFG Terminal Tackle™ Short is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 30.
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.

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 Fishing shorts! Great for fishing love that it has plenty of pockets! Also comfortable for just walking around very light weight fabric.

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.

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 4 out of 5 by from Good Shorts for Fishing Nice material, lots of pockets both large and small. Size ok, Just not what I was looking for so I returned them.

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.
