Really oddly cut shorts and they don't fit in the front (too tight in front) yet the back waist band and butt area is huge. Returning them due to poor cut. (note - three of us about the same size tried these - and all of us decided to just return them even though we have to pay for return shipping. They would never get worn.
If they do fit you - the construction and material seemed great!
I do not recommend this product.

Great short. Everything I was looking for except the fit. These shorts claim 10" inseam but fall well above the knee on me and I am just over 6 feet tall.
I do not recommend this product.

I know they offer two lengths 10" and 12" but I have tried the 10" length and it is still longer than I like. I have been buting Columbia for about 5 years, and what I liked always was they offered great styles in various lengths. I NEED 8 or 9 " only. In this model 9 " would be great. I'n 5'9" and my legs are not that long... I have a 30 or 31 inch inseam but I prefer shorts worn to the top of my knee and no longer... Longer shorts make me look even shorter than I am... I'm not that short but my height is mostly in my body length not my legs... thanks
I would recommend this product.

All though Griphoist shorts are very well made there sizing in larger sizes may be to small for most. Comparing a size 42 in both the no longer available Lander shorts and the Griphoist shorts there was a difference in rise of 15" to 12" respectivley. Which makes for a lack of room in the seat. I would not recomend these shorts in larger sizes.
I would recommend this product.
