Columbia Men's Palmerston Peak™ Short - Big

When a sizzling slick-rock scramble ends with a cooling dunk in the Colorado, this cleanly cut cargo short is the wingman of choice.

No rear pocket which makes it hard to deal with a wallet when you need to carry one. For this reason I would not buy this short again but otherwise a great fitting quality short.
I would recommend this product.

In Hawaii we wear shorts all the time, especially if your a fishing guide. Love the fit, and comfort. The elastic band gives me room as my weight drifts up and down a little. LOL Dries fast in the sun.
I would recommend this product.

I have been wearing Columbia shorts for many years. I wear year round and have always loved. The best thing about Columbia shorts is the great elastic waistband. Not now, the elastis is gone. Very cheaply made, not near the high quality I have come to expect.
I do not recommend this product.

These shorts were purchased specifically for white water rafting. The built in full waist web belt kept the pants on even after capsizing in class V rapids. They are comfortable and most important quick to dry. Glad Columbia hasn't forgotten that big guys need functional sportswear...I bought the 3XL.
I would recommend this product.

these shorts have a REAL web belt that runs through the entire short! This means that these shorts will stay on you and not slip down due to flimsy elastic. The fabric is of great quality and the colors are great! only recommendation would be to allow more room in seat and thighs.
Activities: Swimming
Conditions: Other
I would recommend this product.
