first time I wore these was fishing the flats off Key West, very comfortable even when wet, they are now my favorite fishing shorts, they run just a bit small which is great for me, I am a 35 waist and the 36 fits perfect. Wish they came in more colours.
I would recommend this product.

I bought these for my husband and he loves them. He particularly appreciates the deep pockets. When wearing other shorts with more shallow pockets, he was always losing stuff. My only complaint would be that they were just a bit tight after laundering. Had this not happened, I would have given them five stars for sure.
I would recommend this product.

Shorts are 'cut leaner' than other pairs of Columbia Shorts - that's the only issue - had to go one size up from previous for comfort.
Love all the pockets and great storage. Thoughtful construction, stress points are reinforced and the open pockets are within easy reach but out of the way where they could be a nuisance, or items stored there could be dislodged.
I would recommend this product.

I have been wearing Columbia shorts for many years. I just found these Barracude shorts and am really enjoying them. I now own 4 pairs . They keep their shape and do not wrinkle as much as my prior shorts.
I would recommend this product.

As a professional fishing guide, I need clothing that stands up to the extreme exposure to sun, saltwater and wear and tear on a daily basis. These Columbia shorts meet those standards and are also very functional as to comfort and pocket design .
I would recommend this product.

Bought four pairs of the Men's Barracuda Killer Shorts to use during my guiding trips in South Florida. Liked the looks, feel and how quickly the material dries after I get them wet but I like deep front pockets that won't allow stuff to fall out when I move around the boat. If the pockets had been deeper I would have rated them five stars. I am on The Pro Guide Program!
I would recommend this product.
