Product Reviews
Rated 3 out of 5 by from For Thunder Thighs Only [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So the utility and construction are good. However, the pictures online just don't show just how large the leg openings are. I'm not sure if they were designed for those gifted with huge upper thighs, and I certainly don't have the skinniest legs, but these certainly have a more kilt-ish look to them from certain angles. That being said, I'm sure if you like doing aggressive aqua-robics with lots of high kicks and deeeeeep lunges, these things would be a great purchase! Otherwise, shoot those legs into a different pair of shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TIME TO GET RID OF THE TORTURE BRIEF [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The shorts are exactly as advertised. But let's face it- We have new high tech wicking fabrics today- GET RID OF THE MESH BRIEF. It is uncomfortable. I have 4 pair- because I love the quick drying short. I have cut the brief out of every pair. I wear ** OFFICIO shorts with these shorts- and it has worked out well (they too are quick drying.) I wear them primarily as swim trunks. I love that they have belt loops, so wearing them as shorts won't end with an unwanted slide. It is easy to go from lake to town without a wardrobe change. Great Short/Trunks-I'll pass on the 50's swimwear liner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit and Function [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Just got these in a few weeks ago and have only worn them around the house a little so I can only speak to fit and feel right now. I will update my review as I use them more. Fit: I'm 5-10/175lb and wear size 34 pants. I initially ordered size large in these shorts. The fit good but even with the drawstring pulled tight they still weren't secure. I returned and got Mediums and they fit great without having to synch the drawstring tight. Feel: I bought these to swim, fish, and run around in during the summer. They are nice and light weight and seem to be a product that dries fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bathing Shorts (!!) I've been trying to find shorts like this for several years - years ago, I purchased, and in the summer pretty much lived in, a half dozen pair of Patagonia shorts, in a model they no longer make. Attempts at replacement have failed, as later models and other brands had pockets that were too small, or too hard to put my wallet in, or were too snigy across my butt, or didn't dry quickly. These shorts do it all, and serve great as double duty: nice shorts for rambling, and good swim trunks for the beach. So, they are highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect swim shorts I have been through 4 or 5 swim trunks the past year looking for fit and function that I like. There have been some that fit great but lacked function (I want front pockets and a secure back pocket.) There were others board shorts that look great but there is no inner swim liner. These shorts are perfect. As a bonus, they are very light and dry fast. They don't feel heavy when wet. There is no front tie like a board short to have to mess with when you need to use the restroom (and no velcro closure.) Just great swim trunks built with Columbiia's famous quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable Shorts [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I like most everything about these shorts. The fit is good, length is great, overall they feel really good. Only down side is the two front pockets, they are made of mess material (inside) which I really don't care too much for. Almost anything I put in the pockets gets caught in the mess. I expect the mess will not last too long with the way I use these shorts, i.e. always putting stuff in & the pulling it out. The pocket openings seems too large, & they tend to stick out a little bit. I would like to see the pockets redesigned. I do recommend the shorts, especially for outdoor uses such as hiking, biking & even fishing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Better Shorts [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These are hands down my favorite shorts pants! From the mesh lining that lets them drain and dry quickly to the phone pocket on the right that my iPhone 7 perfectly fits just great design and great implementation. Love the zippered rear pocket, the drawstring and the belt loops! I wear them almost everywhere! The only things that would be an improvement in my estimation would smaller product tags and most importantly, another rear pocket on the left! Great shorts that would then be perfect (IMHO)! You can see from my included picture that I have quite a few!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Faded very badly after very little use I purchased this product as a replacement for a previous pair of Columbia Water Shorts as I had joined a gym and needed a new bathing suit for the water aerobics class. I purchased this particularly product for the pockets and back zipper pocket. After wearing it 3 times in the pool at the gym, they have faded to where they are almost white. I realize their is chlorine in the water but I've never had a pair fade so badly. I would have rated the shorts a five as they fit perfectly and are very comfortable but due to the sever fading, I can only give them a 2. My recommendation is do not use this product in a swimming pool. I tried to add a photo but the site would not let me.
