Men's Royce Peak™ Short is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts for hiking or every day wear! I bought these for my husband for hiking in Colorado. They were great for that trip, and since then he wears them for virtually everything! They fit nicely and move well, and look nice with a t-shirt, polo, or button down shirt. They also wash well - he's had them for almost a year and they look almost new. Great product. Would highly recommend these!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super comfortable These shorts are some of the most comfortable I've ever worn. They fit pretty true to size in my opinion. They seem pretty breathable, I'm wearing them in Jamaica later this month.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts! I'm a size 32 waist, ordered the size 32 and they fit perfectly. They are light weight and will work great for warm summer hiking trips and touring around town. They look great and are well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Travel Bought these shorts for my husband for a trip where we needed to pack light. These shorts are perfect - light weight, well-made and a good fit. Side zipper on the leg has a roomy compartment. My husband liked the choice of leg length. Will definitely purchase another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, light weight shorts Very comfortable fabric, with a slight give, that resists wrinkles after laundering. Mesh pockets on the side and velcro closures on the back pockets. The zippered pocket is perfect for wallet or cell phone. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The shorts of a Roadie These shorts live the life of a roadie. They are worked in everyday for hours. Therefore they must be comfortable. My husband loves these shorts. They are the only ones he will buy and wear now. They stretch in all the right places and dry so fast and easily. They pack very nicely in his luggage and take up little room and are light weight. The stitching is great. Haven't had any problems with wear and tear. They are holding up very well. Very pleased with this product and will continue to purchase as needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair of shorts These shorts are true to fit. They are true wash and wear - no wrinkles and no shrinkage. When I wear them they don't wrinkle from sitting or anything. Best clothing purchase I've made in a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice light weight shorts I was looking for a light weight short that I could wear on a hike and even jump into a lake or stream. Even though these are not made for water. I feel like they would dry quickly after becoming wet. I am very happy with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST "DARN" SHORTS These shorts are fantastic...the fit is true, the fabric is substantial, yet very comfortable, with just a little stretch...and being 6'5", the 12" inseam is perfect...actually logged on, to order two more pair of these shorts, but my size is sold out...(HINT) hey Columbia, if anyone sends any of these back, or you find any hidden in a corner, I'll take two more (w-36" X 12" inseam, color: Tusk)...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PHENOMENAL shorts! The best way to describe the fabric is that it mimics almost exactly the Mountain Hardwear Piero mountaineering pants from 2010 - 2011. Tough nylon with stretch, but VERY comfortable and COOL! Gravel is a great color. Just recently lost a lot of weight and went from a 34" to a 32" waist. 32 X 10 fit perfectly in the waist, but tight in the butt and thighs. 34 X 10 has extra room in the waist (manageable by cinching down my belt two holes) but perfect in the butt and thighs. Chose the 10" length so that they would be above my knees (I'm 5'11" tall), which I enjoy from both personal comfort and trail useability standpoints. Might have to order another few pairs of these!
