Rated 1 out of 5 by from Item has been value re-engineered badly I have been using this particular short for a long time -- wearing them out eventually, ordering replacements every so often, etc -- and up until now it has been a fantastic pair of shorts, totally to my liking. I recently ordered replacements and found that they have been redesigned so that the front pockets are about 2" shallower than they used to be. The depth is about the same as the bottom of the pocket opening, so literally nothing can be kept in those pockets. This is really, really unfortunate -- they have ruined what was a perfectly decent product. I returned all but one of the pairs I ordered, am keeping one to see if I can somehow get used to the shallow, useless pockets, but so far the answer is absolutely not.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Columbia Quality No More Recently purchased 2 pairs of these in the Fossil color. I've worn the Permit II shorts for years as my favorite shorts Columbia made. These are a drastic downgrade from the Permit IIs. The material is incredibly thin, which is nice for keeping cool, but any underwear with a pattern or not a light color will show through. The real icing on the cake is when I went to put a pair on this weekend, both the back pockets were ripped on the inside netting with holes big enough for a wallet to fall through. Checked the other pair and saw the same issue on one of the pockets there. I've always bought Columbia products as an affordable, quality alternative to other pricier outdoor brands, but these seem to be contrary.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Good. Please bring back the Permit ll The material is see through. You ca n tell the color and pattern of the underwear you have on. The front hand pockets are so shallow they are useless , knuckle deep. I wear a 34”, the medium is a little snug and the large are way too big. I own 10 pairs of the Permit ll shorts and love them. These shorts are pathetic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Recommended The front pockets on these shorts are so shallow they are pretty much useless. Tried them on when I got them and noticed the front pockets were so shallow that I wouldn’t be carrying anything of value in them. I don’t recommend purchasing these shorts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What’s with the new sizing? I’ve been a Permit II wearer for years and love them. They are my daily short for spring, summer and fall. Decided to order a couple pairs of Permit III’s to replace some of my old Permit IIs. I can live with the thinner material, even the shallow pockets but I can’t handle the sizing. I’m a slim athletic male and the Permit II in a size Small (30W) fit great. The sizing on the Permit III Small is huge! In fact, the website suggests that you order one size lower, but do not offer an Extra Small for us previous Permit II wearers. Unfortunately, they have alienated all previous Permit II size Small customers. Bring back the Permit II or at least offer an Extra Small on the Permit III.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from They Ruined the Best Shorts in their Lineup Ordered Permit III because I liked the Permit II shorts so much. Pockets are useless. Can’t hold a phone, wallet, or really anything. Basically a useless item now. Will return these and never buy again

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Misfits and irregulars I ordered 4 pairs of these shorts, grey, blue, beige and beach. All 4 pairs fit differently and the grey pair has front pockets that I cannot even get my hands in. I don’t know what happened to Columbia’s quality control but I won’t be ordering from the store again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TERRIBLE SHORTS I LOVED PERMIT 2 SHORTS AND ORDERED 3 PAIR OF PERMIT 3 FOR THE FUTURE. THEY ARE TERRIBLE THE POCKETS ARE SO SHALLOW AS TO BE USELESS. THE FABRIC IS POOR. BRING BACK THE 2.
