One of my two favorite shorts.
January 02, 2012

I like these shorts very much for a few reasons. One, excellent material. This is the rolls royce of shorts from Columbia. Two, style/color. Fits well, looks great, and is light and airy. Three, very well made. I unfortunately wore it twice and had a main stitch start to unravel in the rear. A small repair by a tailor, it will be good as new. Very comfortable.

Pros: Great design, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: unprotected stitching

Great Shorts!!!

Just received these shorts today in the mail. They run a little big, but super comfortable and very light weight. They seem to be well constructed. Looking forward to getting the next size down and testing them out completely.

Pros: Great design, Build quality

They are so comfortable. Would by another in a heart beat. I really like the fact that they are stretchy. It helps when rock climbing and other similar activities.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value
