Just returned from Egypt and these shorts were indispensible; wore them everywhere and needed all the pockets for what I carried with me as well as what I bought on my excursions. Very comfortable, just the right weight and fit to a "T" plus little care req'd - wash and wear. Will probably order more now that I'm back in the States.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, no belt req'd
my staple in fishing shorts
January 05, 2013
Columbia Half Moon Shorts have been a staple of my fishing gear for over a decade. They are the perfect fishing short- light, comfortable, easy fitting, lots of pockets, and amazingly durable. Mine last years of active use. Just replenished my supply with Altrec. Best deal on this clothing.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever
Designed for Comfort
February 11, 2011
I was a little worried if I had made the right choice when I opened the box. Once I wore the shorts all my worries disappeared! The first thing you will notice- NO BUTTONS. All the pockets use velcro to keep them closed which to me was a big PLUS. You know what happens to "Favorite" shorts one by one the buttons disappear. Until the last one on the front breaks off. Even the button that fasten the shorts closed was replaced with a d-ring and strap with velcro. The shorts has good compliment of pockets. On the front there are two on either leg, the bottom most pockets are made of a mesh material so you can see the contents of the pocket at a glance. But don't put any pens or set of keys in them as they will pierce through the mesh material as I found out on my first day wearing the shorts. The pockets above the cargo pockets are roomy enough to hold tools (I have large hands and can slide them in and out nicely). On the back of the shorts you have two pockets on either side. The right rear pocket there is a smaller pocket just above the opening that is 1-1/2 inches deep. It can hold a pocket knife, coin pouch, because it has a strap to keep it closed unlike the others that use a patch of velcro. The two rear pockets are as roomy as the front ones, and another plus is that the openings to the rear pockets are angled forward. Making removing your wallet a natural motion (right or left). The quality of the material is medium heavy with high thread count making the material soft as if it was pre-washed. The stitching are doubled in critical areas. The belt loops have double stitching and have enough leeway to thread a 2 inch wide belt easily. The first belt loop on the right side has a small loop to clip a key chain to it. Overall I am really happy with my purchase and plan on purchasing more of these shorts.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use, Cons: Cost, comes in 3 colors
Destroyed too quickly
March 07, 2011
After only about 3 months the seams and velcro closures on the pockets are coming apart. These might work out okay if your just lounging around, but if you expect them to last in a work environment you will be severely disappointed. Bottom line durability leaves a whole lot to be desired.
Buy the shorts! You won't regret it!
July 11, 2010
I wear the Brewha shorts almost every day during yard work, fishing or just knocking around. A minor suggestion would be to sew a spare button inside somewhere, just in case...
great comfortable shorts.
May 23, 2011
Like every other pair of Columbia shorts I own, this one is well made and fits right. I had one that was the same design but made of different fabric which was great for quick dry, this one is thicker since it is all cotton. Can't tel how fast it will dry just yet.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
Half Moons are great
July 23, 2012
I already own several pairs of these shorts. You cannot go wrong with these. Great durability and material. They hold up well and will last a long time. I have a 17 yr old son who wears these all the time and he is a very athletic adventure seeking teen. If they hold up to what he puts them through they will hold up for just about anyone. That is what turned me on to them.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
Best shorts ever made!

Hard to but worth the effort to find
April 01, 2011
I have worn these shorts for many years and in past years had no problem finding them in many retail sporting goods stores. Lately, Columbia seems to have branched out with many different other styles and types of casual shorts that may have more popularity than the Half Moon Shorts. Now, I have much difficulty finding these shorts in any color and in my size (M). The main reasons I keep coming back to the Half Moon shorts are their comfort and durability. Secondly, I wear them in all types of climates, hot and humid in Florida..............cold and windy in New England - with equal comfort. The two major drawbacks to the Half Moon Short are the Velcro waistband and pocket fasteners which have a tendency to curl at the corners overtime and attach themselves to other clothing they are washed with. Also, the net fabric on the front pockets are easy to snag and rip. In spite of them two problems, I gave these shorts an excellent rating overall because they fit well, are made well, and are very comfortable, durable and relatively inexpensive. Thankfully, I can order them in all colors and sizes through Altrec.com.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Great value
Best shorts ever
October 26, 2009
Columbia has hands down dominated the fishing - wear market with there PFG line of clothing. These shorts dry fast, are comfortable in any situation, and look good too. By far the best shorts I've ever owned, I wear them all the time.

Columbia half moon shorts

Great shorts, just bought my 2nd pair. perfect length, not baggy, but not too tight. These are great. Got a Large,, I am 5-11 195lbs. Great for hikes, tailgating, sundays. Have swum in them which was fine, but they dry slowly-not designed for that anyway.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value

Mens Half Moon shorts

My husband has worn these short for the past few years and loves them. He has even been stopped in a store and asked, "Where did you get your shorts"? Great for golf and everything else. Nice pockets and great for shorter men with a shorter in seam.
they are excellent for fishing in the surf or inlets .

These mens half moon shorts ship in a very timely manner. These shorts are very comfortable and perfect for fishing. Very good product.
Good if you don't want super long shorts
October 06, 2010
These shorts are perfect for me as I am not super tall and do not like my shorts hanging below my knee's. The last pair I had ran a little bit big, but this pair seems to run pretty true to size.
October 22, 2010
I love these shorts. They have quickly become my new favorites. I was a bit hesitant at first because they are a little shorter than I'm used to wearing. That immediately changed after my first time wearing them. They're the most comfortable shorts I own.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Very Good Cotton Shorts
July 06, 2011
Strong enough for fishing and hiking. May be a little to light weight for serious camping. Great for fishing with plenty of pockets for storage. Also good for canoeing and kayaking, as they dry quickly.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: fits a little small
July 01, 2009
These shorts are a good length, have convenient pockets, and are very comfortable. My only complaint is that the velcro at the waist is starting to come off within a week of owning them. It is an easy fix, but still a little annoying to deal with.
March 26, 2012
The shorts arrived in a timely manner, fit perfectly, and are the best Columbia shorts I have purchased to date. I would recommend these shorts to all my fraternity brothers and the Altrec website as a reputable, low cost, and worry-free marketplace.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Great value, Lasts forever, Performance

My husband fussed when I told him I ordered these shorts. Then he got them and wore them. He loves them. Says they're comfortable and easy to move in. He loves all the pockets.Pros: comfort
Columbia Men's Half Moon Shorts
July 22, 2012
Recently purchased two pairs of the Columbia half moon shorts (Size: large; Colors: fossil & sage). The items arrived on time and in perfect condition. The shorts are comfortable and fit well. I'm 6'1" with a 36" waist and the large size is a perfect fit. I bought these shorts to replace some old Patagonia shorts I used for fishing excursions and the Columbia shorts appear to be suitable for the task. The material is thinner than the Patagonia shorts and the velcro closure along the waist band seems superfluous (a button would suffice), but overall these shorts are a good value. Large pockets in front and back provide ample storage and there are a few additional smaller pockets for stowing keys, wallet, etc. Not sure if these shorts will hold up as long as my Patagonias (I had those shorts for almost 10 years), but they are relatively inexpensive and if they last a few years, it will be money well spent.Pros: Great value
June 14, 2010
These shorts are great, fit true to size and are very, very comfortable

All Columbia Sportswear products are AWESOME...
April 15, 2009
another example of outstanding styling and functionality... Columbia is NUMBERO UNO in my book...
July 10, 2009
Since I am only 5'6", the shorts today are more like Capri's. These fit great and don't balloon on me. I love Columbia quality and functionality.
Very Nice Shorts
June 30, 2009
Perfect fit, and nice cloth weight. My only concerns are the velcro waist closures (will it wear out faster than a snap or button?) and the mesh cargo pocket fronts. I'm pretty rough on my cargo pockets, so I hope the mesh is durable! I have high hopes!
