Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfy but not up to Columbia quality Really wanted to rated these higher but I believe an honest review is the best review. Shorts are lightweight and comfortable but the stitching is horrible. First day wearing them for just a casual day at a family get together and the stitches started to come loose and pop. Not a happy moment when you think you have split your pants!! I couldn’t imagine being out on the trail wearing them! Time to up the quality Columbia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What do you look for in men's shorts? These shorts get an A+ for user friendliness. You just pull them on, no zipping, no threading of a belt, and you're ready to go. On top of that they are cool (both temperature-wise and in appearance). And - very important - they have deep pockets (don't you hate those shallow pockets in some men's shorts?). TRY THEM!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair of shorts! The Trail Splash shorts are the perfect fit for the outdoors. I work outdoors in the summer and spend a lot of time fishing, these shorts are ideal. This is my first pair of Columbia shorts, they won't be my last.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Trail Splash Shorts Been wearing Trail Splash Shorts for about three years now. Like the casual style and functionality. Although the material of the latest design is great, I agree with another reviewer that the removal of the mesh lining defeats the all around comfortable use. Wish you would add the lining back in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts These are great shorts for the summer. I just wore them for a day to Universal Orlando and boy was it hot. These shorts are cool, don't require a heavy belt, dry pretty quickly, and look great. I bought a couple more pairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, as usual I’ve been a Palmerston guy for years and still love them. I tried these because the Palmerston colors weren’t exactly what I was looking for. The one drawback for me is not having the mesh liner. Now I have to find my undies, just one more thing to put on, to pack, or to wash. I guess not a big deal. The final thing is that these look more dressy than the Palmerston. My GF likes that.
