These shorts are "nice" shorts, but nothing special. A little expesive for so few features.
I have shorts of a competitor that I have worn daily for the past 10 years. That's extreme, but thats what I'm always looking for.
A solid "C" on these shorts.
I do not recommend this product.

Been wearing Columbia shorts along time , was always on the search on the search for a quick drying short that had a inseam lenght that I could live with. Columbia offers a true variety of different kinds of shorts, with an equal amount of inseam lenghts. I have a couple pairs I purchased along time ago and I stir wear them. Would deffenitly recommend Columbia shorts to anybody wanting a quality short.
I would recommend this product.

These shorts are very comfortable and great for people who work outside all day near water. No need to worry about having appropriate clothing for getting wet when you wear these shorts all the time
I would recommend this product.

I have three pair of these and I have worn and washed them many of times and they still work and look great. I use them as an everyday pair of shorts as well as a bathing suit. Blood and stains come out of them very easily.

Solid everyday/swim shorts. I own three pairs and they all fit true to size and are durable. The side pocket is perfect for a phone and the netting is great, not too constricting. Good dry-time as well.
I would recommend this product.

These are great to wear as a bathing suit, fishing, or pretty much anytime it is warm outside. I wear them to go to the store or to run errands on the weekends as well. I also like that they aren't too long.
I would recommend this product.

My 14 year old son loves Columbia shorts. Usually I refuse to pay much for swim trunks but when I saw these in a store I splurged. He loves them so much I have bought 2 more! He wears them to fish, swim in the pool, river and ocean. They have been through a lot & are still holding up!
I would recommend this product.

Some outdoor companies come out with a winning design, then change/cheapen it in subsequent years so it quickly bears little resemblance to the original item in fit, quality and detail.
Not so with Columbia Back Cast shorts.
I would recommend this product.

These shorts are great for wearing all around in the summer time. As much fishing as I do, I wanted shorts that could withstand getting wet, as well as be comfortable for an 8 hour tournament. These shorts do that. Their thin material dries off pretty quickly as well.
I would recommend this product.
