These shorts will sit at or slightly above the top of the knee in the 9" inseam version. The size medium will fit a 34" waist perfectly with the side-elastic waistband stretched to about 75% of its total length. The side-elastic waistband is comfortable and non-constricting, even over a full day of wearing these shorts. These shorts allow for a full range of leg movement with little to no restriction.

LOVE these shorts!
May 16, 2011
Purchased these same shorts about 4 years ago. (I wear these year-round, as I work in a very hot warehouse.) They're practically indestructible. The thing that I love the most is that they are available in 7 inch inseam length--very hard to find other places! PLEASE DON'T EVER STOP CARRYING THESE (especially in the 7 inch inseam option)!!!Pros: Lasts forever, Great value, Cons: narrow pocket openings
Columbia Cliff Lakes II shorts
January 29, 2011
I have enjoyed wearing Columbia shorts for years. The Cliff Lakes II are my favorite. Very comfortable fit, durable, stylish, and a great value. The fabric is cool in the summer and I like the ample pocket storage. Mt preference is the 9" inseam. i wear them casually around town or the golf course or on my stream trout fishing trips. I recommend them for sure.Pros: Great design, Performance, Great value
Only shorts my husband will wear
June 15, 2011
And this is the only site that I can find them on. Columbia is a great durable brand. The length is perfect - hard to find 7 inch inseam on shorts. Loves the tan color and the weight of the fabric. Thank you thank you thank you for carrying these shorts.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Great value
Durable Outdoors Shorts
June 26, 2011
I bought several pairs of these shorts years ago and decided I needed to stock up on a few more pairs. The old ones are still going strong, but I was looking for a longer inseam. They are an almost indestructible pair of shorts, with tons of pockets for anything you need to have at hand for a day's hike or whatever. The sizing on these shorts are a it odd. The small is a tad snug but the medium is too large for me. Otherwise, great.
"Real" Cargo Pockets
October 23, 2010
When I buy cargo shorts, there is one quality that I look for above all others. I want to have cargo pockets that are big and therefore functional. When I travel or am out on the trail, I need to have pockets that will carry a water bottle or perhaps a short umbrella. Today, most so called cargo shorts have pockets that are not worthy of the term "cargo". Often, there is barely enough room for a wallet. For several years, I have tried to find cargo shorts with pockets big enough to do the job. It has been surprisingly difficult to find them. These shorts have the pockets I want and need. The nice quality of construction is a plus. I am very happy with these shorts, and hope Columbia will continue making them for years. I have a 40 inch waist. "Large" is the correct size for me.Pros: Great design, Build quality
Only shorts I'll Wear
June 19, 2011
Cliff Lakes Cargo shorts from Columbia are the only short that I'll wear. Love the relaxed waist band and the overall fit. These shorts are hard to find locally, so I was glad to find them at Altrec at a great price.Pros: Great design, Lasts forever, Great value
Hard to Find
December 25, 2011
I have used this brand and style of shorts for over 10 yearsw. I have found no other comparable shorts in quality, wear, and style. I use thes for hiking, walking, and golfing.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Great value
Cliff Lakes Shorts
June 26, 2011
I finally found them. I have been looking for cargo shorts that fit me (5'5") and I finally found them. These are excellent! The fit is perfect, the inseam is just right, and they hang the way I wanted these type of shorts to hang. I did my first round of golf and they were very comfortable. Can't wait for the hike next week.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever
Nice rugged shorts
October 21, 2010
My husband has been wearing the Columbia Cliff Lake shorts for years. He does A/C work and loves the various pockets, especially that pockets velcro and that the side pockets are very deep. Also the pockets are all the canvas fabric so they wear longer than shorts with just a lined pocket. He does wear them out but they last much longer than any other shorts he has bought (he is VERY hard on clothes). And he likes the length - not too long (He is 6 ft but a lot of cargo shorts are too long for him). He wears them for work and play --I'll be buying more....Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
Columbia Cliff Lake Cargo Shorts
January 07, 2012
I've been buying these shorts for several years now and I have to say that I've never been disappointed. The true to size fit and comfort ( expandable waist band ) can always be counted on with the Cliff Lake shorts and combined with the durability this product can be used for any activity from yard work to golfing. My hope is that Columbia continues to make the Cliff Lake Cargo shorts.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value
Glad I Found These
June 26, 2011
I was looking to replace some ROC shorts, which have been discontinued. I stumbled upon these and decided to give them a try. Great shorts! All the features I want at a very reasonable price. Will be buying more.Pros: Great value
Great Casual Shorts
July 03, 2011
I recently ordered two new pair of these shorts after I broke the zipper on a pair that was around 6 years old. The zippers on the newer pairs appear to be more durable. The heavy duty fabric on the old pair was still not showing any signs of wear. That durability of the fabric is one of the features that appeals to me about these shorts. A second feature is that at 5' 8" and a medium build these are among the very few shorts that fit me well. Having reached an age where my waistline fluctuates a little, the bit of elastic on either side of the waist band also helps to ensure a good fit.Pros: Great design, Build quality
April 23, 2011
Best cargo shorts out there. Good fit and plenty of pocket room. Really good value. Would reccomend these shorts. Really good service from Altrec also.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Great value
July 08, 2010
My husband bought these shorts a few years ago and has worn them until they were threadbare refusing to give them up. We had not been able to find them again until I found Altrec. He is short so the 7" inseam is perfect for him. Chatting online with one of Altrec's reps was also very helpful. I will definitely order again.
Made to Last
June 30, 2011
It's summer, and my husband virtually lives in his Cliff Lakes Cargo shorts. I have seen him work, camp, and backpack in the same two pair of shorts for the last 4 years. Although they are extremely durable, I insisted he purchase new ones, or at least some new colors. He is very particular on fit and claims they are the most comfortable shorts he has found. Columbia makes a quality product, adding secure deep pockets and an elastic waist that adjusts to his larger frame (XXL). Personally, I can vouch for ease of washing and stain removal, on the rare occasion he relinquishes them to the laundry basket!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance
May 29, 2011
overall everything perfect, ok delivery time, shorts seemed a tiny bit longer than I expected, good thick fabric, already have worn and washed and put in dryer and everything OK
Men's Cliff Lakes Cargo shorts
January 31, 2011
I have worn this brand of shorts for over 10 years. They look great hold up great and have not found anything better. I would recommend this to anyone especially if you want a short that is flexible in the waistline. Having a belt loop just makes these shorts that much better.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Great value
Great Cargo Shorts
July 27, 2010
The Columbia Cliff Lakes Cargo Shorts are about the best cargo shorts I've owned. The 7 inch inseam is just about right and it allows my knees to get some sun tan without having to take my shorts off. The pockets are numerous and top quality.
Most comfortable shorts I've ever worn
August 10, 2010
These shorts are the most comfortable shorts ever made. I'm still wearing the first pair I bought 3 years ago. They don't wear out and they're still in style. I won't buy any other shorts.
Great in Town or on the Trail
April 11, 2011
My biggest problem with shorts these days is the length. Usually way to long for my 30" inseam. The Cliff Lake cargo shorts (7" inseam) were just right. Allowing me to show off my great looking knees. Fit seems to be spot on. Build Quality appears first rate. Good looking, even stitching. Numerous deep pockets. The only drawback for hiking... they're cotton. That being said, I still like them for that purpose.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Great value
A superb pair of shorts
January 03, 2011
I purchased these shorts for a cruise and planned to wear them on extremely active shore excursion. Not only did they perform perfectly they proved to be extremely durable and very comfortable. I felt cool in a very hot climate and had plenty of pocket space for my phone, camera, and the various items most people pack on such outings. I love these shorts and am ordering another pair in another color.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value

Love These Shorts
December 16, 2010
Best shorts I've ever owned. Very comfortable. They clean up easy, don't shrink after washing and get more comfortable each time I wear them. Durable soft canvas material moves with you as you play and is not restictive at all for bigger or athletic guys like me. Lots of room in the thighs and just enough stretch in the waist make these the last pair of shorts you'll ever want to buy.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Great value

Great for all around activity. Very comfortable and versatile.

Great looking and very comfortable
August 05, 2010
Bought 2 pair. Haven't worn any of my other shorts since receiving these a couple of weeks ago.
August 05, 2010
I love these shorts...they wear like iron, loaded with pockets and the length is just right. I prefer the 7inch legs rather than the below the knee style. My first pair I have had for six years and it is finally time to retire them. Buy them before they go out of style!!!
July 11, 2011
More comfortable than I expected, latest style and great brand. great on the boat, walking, playing or just lounging. Would buy more in a heartbeat. great color and size collection. accurate sizing.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Columbia Cliff Lakes Shorts
April 26, 2011
As a long time wearer of Cliff Lakes II shorts I needed a similar short with a 7" inseam. These shorts are not identical to the Cliff Lakes II short, but they are extremely close. I usually wear a size 38 and the large in this short fits well. These shorts do seem a little less generous in the leg. Overall a very nice short and a great replacement for the Cliff Lakes II.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Great value
July 13, 2011
My husband loves these shorts & they are becoming hard to find. Columbia doesn't even have them on their website anymore. I did find a pair in one of their outlet stores, but he wanted more colors & we were so happy to find them on Altrec in several colors. We ordered two pairs & will probably be back for more! They are comfortable & very durable. He loves the side elastic. Great service from Altrec, too!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Great value
August 21, 2011
Lookd all over for these shorts as had a pair prior and LOVED them. Found on Altrec and received very quickly. Great fit, great material. True to size. Am ordering 6 more pairs since I can't find them anywhere.Pros: great overall

Great shorts and quick service
July 12, 2010
I was not able to find these shorts in a retail store so I went to the Altrec site. I was able to obtain the correct size and color and they were shipped immediately. Very pleased with this purchase.
I've been wearing these for 7 years...

Columbia Cliff Lake shorts are not only comfortable, but they are also good looking and wear like iron!! I have some Cliff Lake Shorts that are more than 5 years old, and they really don't show a bit of wear!! These are the only shorts that I wear whether I'm camping, hiking, or just hanging out. You can easily dress them up, or dress them down......they just look great in any environment.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value

Recived in 2 days pants fit great at a good price . The local retail stores do not stock a lot of the products that are listed in your catlog. Will order again.
Best Shorts I own
April 21, 2011
I have been wearing cliff lake shorts since 2004. I have short legs and most of the shorts available in stores look terrible on me or they are silly expensive. The 7in cliff lakes fit great and are super functional. I have been unable to find them for the last few years until I came across altrec. I purchased 2 new pairs and have been wearing them for work since the day they got here. The pockets are huge and hold a ton of stuff. The best part about these shorts is they last forever. I still have 2 pairs left from 04. They have seen better days but are great for yard work. Customer service at altrec was great and I will be ordering 3 more pairs of these shorts while I can find them.
Indestructable but material is too heavy
March 05, 2011
Very well made shorts. Extremely heavy fabric. Way too hot to be considered good for summer. The pockets are nice and deep. These would be good shorts for someone working in the building trade. For the casual wearer, these shorts are just too stiff and too hot to be enjoyed.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Great value, Cons: material too heavy
COlumbia Cliff Lakes Shorts
June 17, 2011
My husband is a fan of the Columbia Cliff Lakes shorts, but prefers tthe 7in inseam to the 9in. We have searched EVERYWHERE for these shorts over the past few years and finally found them. They are an excellent fit, high quality, and a grat value. He has a few pairs of these that we bought close to 10 years ago and they are a little worse for wear, but still going strong.Pros: Lasts forever, Performance, Great value
June 22, 2011
I wear these all year round. My suit and my casual wear are these shorts. The shorts are durable and comfortable. I wear these shorts throughout the year - summer, fall, winter and spring, but thats California weather.Pros: Build quality, Ease of use

The ultimate cargo shorts
July 04, 2011
The cut is very comfortable and the deep pockets keep things secure. The 7" length gives unrestricted movement but provides enough protection for hiking. The cloth is soft and pliable yet durable. Great for travel. Can wear in a casual restaurant or hit the hills. Perfect shorts. I have 5 pairs.Pros: Great design, Performance
Great shorts, and good fit...
July 23, 2010
When you're 5'8" and under if you shop the stores, you're going to wind up wearing capris. I like shorts to be above the knee not below them. Really nice thing about finding Altrec is being able to have a choice when it comes to inseam in Columbia shorts.
color great, construction fairly good
July 31, 2010
would be better with a drawstring - the pocket side ends in a place that makes it gap with each step..should be moved a bit more to the side.
Great comfort and rugged shorts!
September 14, 2010
I bought the medium sized navy blue Cliff Lakes Cargo shorts and they are very comfortable and have a rugged style to them. I like the deep pockets and the roominess of the cargo pockets. I want the peat moss color in size medium with 7 inch inseam next, but it seems to be out of stock. Oh well. I can wear these forever and not get tired of them. Very pleased with the purchase.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance

love these shorts
March 11, 2011
I love these shorts. I continue to look for cargo shorts, but these are the only ones that I keep coming back to. They are hard to find, however, (I usually find them in obscure shops while on vacation), so I was very pleased to find them at your shop on line. They are comfortable, durable and I love the design. They do run a little large as I normally purchase XL when I buy other shorts. But that's okay, as I've learned to purchase large when I buy these. Please, please do not stop carrying them.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value
April 18, 2011
BOUGHT THESE SHORTS TO REPLACE SOME NYLON COLUMBIA SHORTS WHICH HAVE BEEN ALMOST INDESTRUCTIBLE OVER THE LAST 5 YEARS, BUT ARE FINALLY READY TO BE RETIRED. SHORTS HAVE PLENTY OF POCKETS AND ARE EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE, INSEAM IS 9 INCHES, WISH THEY WERE ANOTHER INCH OR TWO LONGER, A PERFECT WEIGHT FOR SPRING WEATHER, BUT THOUGHT THEY WERE A LITTLE WARM WHEN THE TEMPERATURE GOT OVER 80 DEGRESS. I SPEND A LOT OF TIME IN THE COLORADO MOUNTAINS IN THE SUMMER, AND EXPECT THESE SHORTS WILL BE PERFECT FOR SUMMER HIKING AND BIKING ADVENTURES UP THERE.
Could not find this brand locally , altrec . com saved the day..
August 13, 2010
Cliff Lakes cargo shorts are the best I have found. They fit and wear like iron. I have tried others that did not compare, I will stay with Columbia.
January 12, 2011

The only shorts are good shorts
November 18, 2011
This is the second time I have purchased these Cargo shorts from Altrec.com. I have found that some shorts with snaps often don't stay snapped. This is especially true for larger (overweight) men. These have buttons which means they can be worn without a belt. The pockets are in all the right places and choices of use, from small to large. I literally wear these about 360 days out of the year and they last the whole year. I will never wear any other brand. Altrec, please don't ever go out of business.Pros: Great design, Lasts forever, Great value

The best in its style. Definitely I'm gonna buy more of these. Be careful with the fit thought.
PERFECT SHORTS (almost)
November 05, 2011
I believe I am on my third generation of these shorts. I like them for a lot of reasons: Slight elasticity in the waist for my adjusting girth. The front cargo pockets have single-point "hook & loop" fasteners so they are secure, yet you can open them easily. The slash pockets are roomy and easy to access. The rear pockets have single point fastener in the center, but no flap. I believe this makes them secure, yet easy to access (I hate trying to lift an "I want to stay closed flap" on my butt when trying to get my wallet out of or into the pocket). There is a "hidden" security pocket on the right side. No zipper or closure on it, but it blends in very well behind the slash pocket and it is deep enough so things you put in it won't fall out. WARNING: if you have very large hands, they won't fit into that pocket. I wear a size Large glove, and my hands are a tight fit. The shorts have 5, wide belt loops. 7 loops would have been a very nice improvement. The shorts are comfortable to wear and durable. The hems fall just above my knees, which is exactly where shorts should end. Longer than that and they are half-pants, shorter than that and you can guest star on Reno 911.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, comfortable, durable
November 10, 2010
Fantastic shorts! They are heavy-duty. Look great. Very comfortable. Deep pockets. They also have an elastic band in the waist. I own multiple pairs and I plan to buy more.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Great value

My dad is over 6' tall and loves these shorts because the inseam is fitting. The colors match all of his shorts; he wears khaki shorts and polos every day! The pockets are great too so he can put all of his stuff in there!Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Cons: Cost
Cliff Lakes cargo shorts
November 28, 2010
In my opinion, these are the best leisure shorts you can buy. They last for years and develop a nice worn look as they age. I especially like the fact that they have elastic inserts in the waste. I have worn the same size shorts (Lg) when I weighed 185lbs and all the way up to 220lbs. Yes, I should learn how to quit eating seconds and thirds!
April 03, 2011
My son had finally worn out his old pairs of these shorts and we could not find new ones anywhere, until I found altrec. I was so thrilled to find these shorts that I ordered several pairs and plan to get more. My son says they have the best pockets and hold all the things that teenage boys have in their pockets. I did talk with customer service before ordering and they couldn't have been nicer. Shipping was free (due to my order total) and the shorts arrived very quickly.Pros: Great design, Lasts forever, Great value

Very pleased overall, including quality and customer service. The Columbia shorts fit well and the quality of the material seems to forecast durability. The depth of the front pockets is unique and will have tons of different uses, though would like to see flaps on the rear pockets. The elastic inserts in the waist band make the fit very comfortable, and the leg length is perfect.Pros: Great design

Ideal edition of hard-to-find item
August 16, 2011
Whatever happened to decent cargo shorts with 7-9" inseams? My erstwhile favorite retailer in Maine has nothing in these sizes except with pockets too small. Enter Columbia, whose Cliff Lakes 7" shorts are perfectly sized for the short of stature, and with cargo pockets large enough to hold a wallet along with a ballpoint pen. Living in these shorts all summer and into the fall.Pros: Great design, Ease of use
Columbia 7" Shorts
October 08, 2010
These shorts are hard to find from Columbia with 7" Inseam. They hold up very well and are very comfortable with the the elastic waist. I wish you would continue to stock or tell Columbia to keep making these shorts. Shorts with the cargo pockets are wonderful.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Hard To Come By...
July 12, 2010
I particularly like the 7" inseam available on these shorts. It's getting hard to find shorts that aren't 10" or more in the inseam. I have two pairs of these that I bought many years ago and they're still going strong. I picked up a few last year and some more on this purchase. I'm probably going to stockpile a few more before I can't get them anymore.
Nice shorts, fit great
July 13, 2010
I've resisted the whole "shorts to the knee" thing for years, shorts are shorts. But times change, and being "short" myself, I had a hard time finding the "to the knee" ones. These with the 7 inch inseam are perfect, right to the top of the knee.
July 17, 2010
Great for Golf. Shorts last a long time (wear well). Good enough for casual dining here in AZ also. Whats not to like about these shorts.
These are my go-to shorts
January 31, 2012
I have been wearing this model shorts for a few years now and they are my go-to brand and model. They are comfortable, durable, and priced right when purchasing from Altrec. I only wish that there were more colors readily available. I would recommend these shorts to anyone.
Great Cargo Shorts
January 06, 2012
I found these shorts to be very durable and comfortable. They are made with a nice thick cotton material that should last through many washings. The number of pockets should make these shorts very handy for household projects, but the pockets themselves are a little tight. Fit and finish is excellent so far. A Large size is perfect for a 37" waist. The transaction was great - easy to order and very fast delivery. I am very pleased.Pros: Build quality, Great value

A young 59 year old,6'1' and 185 pounds finds these shorts to be a perfect fit! After researching and looking at various shorts I picked these and got them within a day or so of my order. I opened the package and put them on...and left them on for a great afternoon hike! The shorts have great features for a long hike in the mountains or along the coast.

I work as an air boat tour guide at Wild Willy's Air Boat Tours In Kissimmee FL. These shorts are indestructible. They take a beating on six passenger boats 12 hours a day in the swamp. They are cool in the blistering heat of the Florida summer and stains are easily washed out. So far after a years use they have faded very little and haven't even lost a button.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Absolutely the best!

My husband has been wearing these shorts for a number of years now. They're his absolute favorite. The nine-inch inseam and comfort waist work just right, for him. Also, the quality is outstanding. This time around, I purchased six pairs for him, in case they stop making them.
Alpine Tundra, Columbia Navy, Flax, Fossil, Olive Green, Peatmoss, Sage, Sahara, Sand, Suede and Tank.
Available sizes, while supplies last, include size small, size medium, size large, size extra large and size extra extra large: s, m, l, xl, xxl.
