Really wonderful shorts!

Can't say enough about these shorts! They are so comfortable, they look good and they have great pockets. My husband loves them and wears them all the time. He talked about them so much that I bought myself some and can see why he's so pleased with them. Love the zipper pocket for kayaking!

Great for Fishing
June 02, 2011

Got these last week, pockets and design are very well thought out and very practical. Very comfortable, breaths well, and dries quickly. Only problem is that the stitching has a few minor defects, but overall I think they'll hold up for a few years.

Pros: Great design, Great value, Cons: Wears quickly

Just an Awesome Buy
June 10, 2011

I bought these pants last month and all I can say about them is "awesome". The pants fit true to size and are better than I expected.. They are extremely lightweight and very durable.. You can wear these pants anywhere as they are made and look so well.. They look good in any setting.. I'm 5'7" and weigh 178 lbs., in shape, and these pants could not feel or fit any better.. Plenty of well placed pockets.. You are missing a great opportunity if you do not try these shorts !!

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

Very comfortable shorts, great fit..

They fit great, are made well, and are really comfortable. These are high quality and are perfect for this upcoming summer (and hopefully many summers to come).

Comfortable and practical
September 29, 2010

I'm a gal, and I spend a lot of times out of doors, racewalking, swampstomping, hiking, you name it. These pants are an essential part of my wardrobe because they wick moisture away keeping me comfortable. The size is perfect. A reasonable number of pockets and good depth of pocket so that I can carry small notebook, I-phone, whatever. In fact, except for water bottle I wouldn't need a pack. In Bryce Canyon recently, another hiker yelled to me that it looked like I had on Columbia's fishing line because of the telltale triangle in back. I said I didn't know that the shorts were oriented to fisherman, and that I don't fish, but that these were the best darn shorts I've ever owned, and that fisherman must be pretty cool folks to warrant such a great product!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Great price comfortable, Not fast dirt, I would recommend selecting a long length.
