Good fit and highly functional
These shorts fit great. It took me a few different Columbia styles to find one that fit me right. I'm built like a truck, short legged and stocky. So regularly it's difficult to find a pair of shorts, or pants for that matter, that fit right. The pockets are in the right places and carry everything. The color selection is palatable. Seem like they will last me a few years of wear and tear.

Bought these to replace a 5 year old pair that I've beaten to death (but they're still functional). The fabric is tough without being heavy, and the pockets are in exactly the right places. I'm 6'2" and the large size falls a few inches above my knee. Good for climbing, working and anything else where a longer length would get in the way.

Finally, shorts that are short.
I bought some of these in flax, sage and fossil, 15 years ago in the mall department store The summers are very long in Houston/ Clear Lake, TX so they got a lot of use. After about 12 years they started showing some wear/tear damage. One of the main things I like about them was the short inseam and the way they looked on a late '50s guy, 5' 9" tall and in pretty good shape looked in them. I looked everywhere but could not find the 7" inseam version, because long and baggy was the in thing. I finally decided to hit the web and see if I could find them. I just ordered and received one pair. Fits perfect......looks great. Going back for more now that I know where to find them. These shorts are great for casual dress dates, boating/sailing, biking, hiking.......basically you'll find me in one color or another with nylons t-shirts or Hawaiian shirts all day, most every day in the summertime.

Love these shorts. I bought a pair of these several years ago that were a quick drying nylon material but they do not appear to make that style anymore. This cotton style is very good however. I am a 33-34 waist and ordered mediums. They appeared a little big at first but after washing and drying they they are perfect. Would definitely buy these again!
