My husband loves this bathing suit and has it in 3 colors. He's been wanting a red one so I ordered the 'sail red' but when it came it is more of a burnt orange. It was very disappointing to give as a gift and have the wrong color and now have to return it.
I would recommend this product.

very comfortable as dry shorts and as a swim suit. Dries quick and the material feels light and airy when wet, not heavy or clingy

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.

Always looking for the right product to multitask. Wanted a swim type truck that was understated and had the ability to do light lifting. This short sheds water like nothing else keeping you dry and comfortable. The pockets are positioned right, cant see'um belt loops for over duty, internal draw string, and the water drainage is perfect for swimming with the Joneses. Perfect product for my needs which very from recreational to serious.
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 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.

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 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 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.
