These shorts are very comfortable and an all around good purchase on my part. If I am Hiking the sides of mountains, Swimming in a lake or just chilling back in my hammock, these shorts can do it all. If you are questioning buying them don't hesitate any longer. I'm about to buy my girlfriend and me another pair. As for the size, I wear a (29) small and it fits pretty good for me. You can loosen and tighten the belt to fit you better, and it also looks cool. The shorts also have deep pockets so your phone will not fall out too easily. I thought the mesh guard would bother me but it does not at all. These shorts are all around comfortable and good quality.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, awesome, deep pockets
Nice lightweight hiking shorts

I'm on my third generation of these shorts in the past dozen years. I hike, swim, lift, run, bike, climb, travel and and sleep in them. I've never destroyed or even frayed a pair--I think gremlins steal them from me. The belt adds versatility and durability over elastic. Every man should have at least two pair.

I have a son who is not fond...at all of wearing school uniforms. His school only required bottoms to be khaki and they have not specified fabric so these water shorts make him feel a bit like he's "cheating" the system and that makes them even better shorts. Terrific Columbia quality, great elastic waist for all day comfort. Great for when those school days send us right to the pool! The rise is just a teensy bit longer than on other Columbia water shorts but not by much.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
