I really like these shorts. I had been looking in several stores and the were always out of 38 /10 size. Ordered online from Columbia and they were cheaper than the store. Very happy.
I would recommend this product.

It was either great fit but poor quality or vice versa. This shorts fit well and the quality is excellent.

Great shorts but the color wasn't what I thought it would be. I expected India Ink to be black, but it turned out to be gray.
I would recommend this product.

Runs small in waist. Need one waist size larger. Length is good. Lighter fabric than other Columbia shorts.
Probably won't order again.

The Washout shorts are a very versatile garment. They fit nice and feel very comfortable quick dry if wet and look good on the town.
Great fishing and night life pair of shorts.
I would recommend this product.

These are a great pair of shorts. They are cotton poplin, but when I received them I was surprised by their lightness. They have nice movement and are very comfortable.
I would recommend this product.

The fit is true to size and the material is not to light and not to heavy. Just right for hot/humid climate. Velcro on back pockets provide security for the average wallet.
I would recommend this product.

These shorts are incredible! They are made of a light weight material that sheds water and stains easily but are still durable. Some shorts I have ordered from Columbia in the past have been a little transparent when wet but these shorts hide even the darkest of undergarments. I will be purchasing a full stock of these for my everyday use during the Texas Summer. The 8 inch inseam is a little long for my taste but I think that my coworkers appreciate it compared to the 6 inch shorts I was wearing.
I would recommend this product.

I am an athletic 5'9", 155 pound, seventeen year old, outdoor enthusiast. Finding clothing that fits, looks stylish, and holds up to abuse is a nightmare. I cannot tell you the amount of time I have devoted to finding clothing that will suit my myriad of vastly differing lifestyles (ranging from survivalist camping to boarding school to construction work).
Finally, I've found that happy medium. I purchased a pair of 30x10 in India Ink from a local Renys at the start of this summer, and I could not be happier with them.
Fit: This is my favorite part of these shorts. Very stylish, tight/tim fit that fits well at the butt and down through the legs. The 10" length is not too wide at the bottom, and cuts just above the Knee. A far cry from the tasteless wide-cut shorts that are so common today. They also seem to fit far better than any other styles of Columbia shorts that I have purchased which also claim "modern classic fit" While tight enough to look great, they are incredibly comfortable, and allow enough mobility to easily move and run in them (I've used them for a 10 mile trail run before).
Function: The make and build quality is very high, and I have had no issues with wear, despite heavy abuse. I do wear a belt with them however so as to not to put too much tension on the button (Its just a tad tight, but I haven't had any issues with it yet). The fabric is very light- but strong- keeping you cool in the summer, and drys very quickly, which is incredibly useful (ever spilled a drink on yourself? gone in 15 minutes). Even the pockets are deep, and easily accessible. The back pockets are worth mention, having a velcro closure, rather than the standard button. I actually really enjoy this, as it allows easy access, and I do not have to worry about popping a button when sliding down a rock or climbing a tree.
Overall, these are amazing. The perfect combination of style and practicality. They look great, feel great, and work great. I wear them everywhere and anywhere: in the woods, hiking, working carpentry, on dates, and to school. I will definitely be getting more.
I would recommend this product.

These shorts are everything they are advertised to be. I wear mine primarily for work, however they are also great for going to town. They are very durable and stylish. As an added bonus, they dry very quickly. I will be buying more in the very near future.
I would recommend this product.

I got these breezy shorts for my husband over a year ago and they have been his favorite shorts yet. He loves Columbia brand, and these are so light and such a comfortable fabric that they work for just about anything. I'm getting him another pair for his birthday this year!
I would recommend this product.
