I do a lot of hiking and exploring all around Lake Tahoe. These shorts offer the best in breathability, lightness and comfort. During the course of my adventures, I often cross river beds or wade through shallow parts of a lake, these shorts dry extremely fast and leave me feeling fresh. They also prove to be quite versatile as they pack small. What else? They seem to be very durable as well, I've brushed up against rocks and have fallen a few times on the trails...these held up great. Also, they're super comfortable wearing around town.
I would recommend this product.

Seem like a good pair of shorts. It's still winter so honestly I've only really tried them on. Seem like they should hold up though. They're very light so I'm looking forward to wearing them when the weather really warms up.
they do run a little small. I wear a 30 and I got 32's and they fit perfectly.
I would recommend this product.

Good shorts, extremely quick to dry so great for hiking.
But one major issue I had is that the main zipper fly in the front jams and gets stuck a lot. It is a cheap looking zipper and simply gets stuck and you have to carefully guide it. The "security zipper" on the side of the shorts works very well in contrast. I mean, come on Columbia isn't the fly zipper a LOT more important, shouldn't you make sure that one works perfectly?
Overall I don't think these shorts are built to a $40 quality, I'm borderline if I'd recommend them or not.
I do not recommend this product.

When viewing the gravel online, they appeared gray, although when I took them out of the box they look more green than anything. Other than that I really like the product.

These shorts live up to the billing! I can wear these to work or golfing. Nicer look than regular cargo shorts but I have several pairs of those too. Light, comfortable, great for South Florida living. My only negative is the stitching seems inferior around the pants button hole. They were frayed on all 3 pairs I bought. I will keep a watch on that, otherwise I am completely satisfied with these shorts
I would recommend this product.

I love the shorts but after wearing them for the fourth time I had trouble with the zipper sticking. (you should have seen me trying to get them off with the zipper stuck at the top). My wife did something that makes is work so far. I considered returning the item but didn't want the hassle.
I would recommend this product.

These shorts fit well, are comfortable, and appear to wear well. The "technical" fabric is light and dries quickly, which is just what I need when kayaking or hiking.
I would recommend this product.

Too early to gauge durability, but the fit was perfect. I would be classified as slim. Fantastic weight, perfect for summer wear.

These were a gift to my husband for his birthday. He like the light weight and coolness of the fabric. He wears them all the time, except when working in the yard. He plans to take them on a hiking expedition with our son and knows they'll dry quickly if they get wet. I have a hard time getting them to the washing machine as he is always wearing them.
I would recommend this product.

They fit well. dry quickly during hot conditions. I bought them to primarily play golf and during hot times, prevalent in the low country of SC, and they perform as advertised.

These shorts look good and are lightweight. Plenty of pockets but stuff can bulge out as the cut is somewhat narrow.

Used these kayaking and zip-lining and they were very quick to dry after getting wet. Comfortable but thought they ran a little slim in the leg for this type of activity.

Great all around shorts. Mostly use for fishing, keeps me cool in the 90+ degree humid NC summers. The material is light, it doesn't hold up like heavier cotton material, but that is to be expected. Highly recommend overall.
