When these shorts were taken out of the plastic to be worn for the first time. The snap on the waistband separated and came apart, with one side staying attached to the snap and the button side falling off. Evidently it was not properly attached during manufacture. I was able to re-attach it, but not sure if it will last. This is the first time that I have experienced a problem with merchandise purchased from Columbia. Other than the faulty snap, the shorts are very nice and exactly what my son wanted.
I would recommend this product.

These are my son's favorite shorts. The elastic waist allows for growth, which I appreciate. The heavy cotton fabric wears well and breathes.
I would recommend this product.

Two complaints:
This is described almost exactly like a product we purchased from the 2010 line, but is significantly lower quality in construction and material.
Bigger complaint:
Relates to sizing. My expectation is that a manufacturer is CONSISTENT in their sizing, particularly in children's sizes. Depending on the specific product, Columbia appears to vary widely. Product runs SIGNIFICANTLY larger per labeled size than similar products in prior years, and is inconsistent with another boy's shorts product offered in 2012. This product is HUGE ... Columbia should strive for at least one of three conditions: a) manufacture true to size; b) if unable to do a), then at least show consistency from year to year; c) if unable to do a) and b), at least show consistency within a given year's line!!
I do not recommend this product.
