Men's ROC™ II Short is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dumb names for colors I ordered a Gray pair and a Green pair and I swear they are the same colors. I've spoken with customer service and I don't think anything is going to happen. Now I have two pair of gray. Not real happy with that. The quality, fit and function is great, but who needs two pair identical?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent shorts, very well constructed These have become my favorite shorts over the summer. Well made and great fit, large pockets for my large phone. Thick material but not hot even in 90 degree weather. Stiff at first but after 2 washes they broke in nicely. High quality buttons, as stated above they became my 2017 spring and summer shorts. Highly recommended. Wish they had more colors in my size. Would have bought more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shorts, sizing way too big I have a pair of the ROC II pants in size 34 waist that fit perfectly. The construction and functionality are awesome. I wanted the same thing in a pair of shorts so I ordered them in a size 34 waist as well. If the waist sizing had been the same they would have been perfect, instead they were about two sizes too big. Now I have to lose six dollars on the return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts Love the ROC pants and love the shorts even more (especially since I bought them on sale). They fit great and I love the zippered pocket. Well made and they feel great. Liked the first pair so much, I bought a second. Get these shorts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like 100% cotton shorts Very comfortable for summer and fall wearing on the golf course or taking a hike in the mountains. It is nice to still find reasonably priced all cotton shorts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from marked 36 measured 41" & 42" I wear ROC's all the time but these were way off in sizing seent back

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wish It Fit This particular short runs large. I bought on clearance and it does not fit. Exchange not possible as sold out, and it would cost as much to ship back as the shorts cost. Disappointed, not Columbia's fault, just wish I could get the correct size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ROC II Short I purchased these for my fiance for hiking. He said they are comfortable and fit true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mens roc shorts Great material and fit great. I'm a size 32 and they fit perfectly and hang right and my knees.
Date published: 2017-05-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts Nice material. Great fit. Zippers, buttons, Velcro are all very nice. I LOVE the extra pocket that rides under the normal pocket on right side. I wish every pair of shorts and pants had this extra pocket

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product as expected from Columbia! I snagged a couple pairs of these shorts of a deal posted online, and I couldn't be more satisfied. Great fit, and construction, and I make these shirts look really good!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit too short The quality of the shorts is excellent, and seem like they would hold up well to some hikes and climbs.. I'm not sure about the zipper though, as it feels a bit flimsy. The cell phone pocket is a nice feature, but the smaller pocket is pretty useless as it's really too small to fit much. These shorts are a little too short for my taste though. I would have liked them to be a bit longer, but that's just how I like my shorts. Overall, they seem like a good buy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good I purchased two more pair These shorts have everything I appreciate in a pair of shorts. The zippered front pocket is great for securing everything. Both rear pockets have small velcro closures - also great for keeping things put likewise for the small hip pocket. I had originally purchased a pair of these shorts last year with the intention of keep them for my "dress shorts". They soon became my favorite wear everyday shorts. So this year when I was looking for a new pair of "dress shorts" I was pleasantly surprised to find them heavily discounted at the Columbia website - I bought two. Enough said.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and Comfortable These shorts are great for hiking or casual dress. They are durable and comfortable. The 8" inseam is a perfect length.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Look like shorty shorts Was disappointed with purchase since shorts are too short and look like shorty shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great MEN'S ROC™ II SHORT I love this design. I like the zippered extra pocket, the button closure (I hate the snap version), the small phone pocket (for my knife), and the wide pantlegs, so I don't need to zipper down to urinate. Hope you keep making more, I need a few more just like it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hope they don't discontinue these! Excellent fit and durability.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 2 pairs I have had 2 pairs of these shorts and the legs started to shred in both. Finally had to pitch them as they started to be completely torn. when they were new they fit well and were felt good. As most good relationships it didn't last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These things are tough. Great for climbing around in rocky places.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Shorts/ Wrong Sizing Returned these because they were too large and a size smaller too small. Material seemed ok but obviously haven't worn these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Short This is a great pair of shorts for casual wear. Very comfortable, and durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ROC II Short Great product. The fact that there is a 8" inseam available is great. The short inseam prevents the leg from binding on the knee when ascending. Also, the fact that these are made from "real" fabric rather than some chemical mixture is a plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts I like these shorts very much. However, my washing machine eat them up. That's why I'm ordering another pair.
Date published: 2015-09-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied I'm sorry another user was not satisfied with these shorts. As soon as I put them on I said "wow" to myself and immediately ordered another pair while they are still on sale. I got the 8 in length and they are 3+ in above the center of my knee. I have skinny legs so they could be a little tighter at leg opening but that's just me. I am tired of looking through racks at the stores for decent shorts. They will be good for construction work as well, being of a heavier fabric. Also, the velcro tab on the side pocket divides it so it can be used for a pencil, etc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great shorts I have had a pair of these shorts for the past five year, it wears great. Hope the two pair that I bought can do the same.
Date published: 2015-08-07
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inferior Product I wore the shorts twice and the zipper failed. The material is lighter weight than the same style shorts of a previous year. I do prefer the button closure to a snap.
