I have used Columbia shirts for many years and appreciate not only how cool they are in hot temperatures, but the casual look they have. I purchased the Brewha II shorts for casual wear and to fish in, based on this experience. I have not been disappointed. The fit is good, even after washing, no noticeable shrinkage. The leg length is perfect for bending down, getting in and out of a boat, and is comfortable. Only time will tell how durable they are. Based on Columbia's reputation, I suspect I will be more than satisfied.
I would recommend this product.

For the life of me I cannot understand why you make "outdoor sporting shorts" but leave off the back right side pocket. I'm right handed and there is no good pocket for my wallet.
The previous shorts from your company I owned were great; that is why I reordered thinking I was getting the same; was I wrong! The left pocket is too small as well.
disappointed!!
I do not recommend this product.

This is the third variation of cargo shorts that I've purchased from Columbia and the worst as far as I'm concerned. By their sizing chart, these shorts are for 36-38" waist. I've recently dropped down to a 36" waist and these are kind of loose on me. I have a relatively small smartphone and it is too tall to stand in the cargo pocket and barely fits sideways. The pockets are over an inch smaller in each dimension. The front pockets gape open meaning anyone can easily dip into them or your stuff falls out. The rear "bottle" pocket looked strange in the picture. It is strange. An 8 oz. bottle can be squeezed into it. These appeared to be the only cargo shorts with a 7" inseam, so I had little choice in the purchase. I will look elsewhere unless Columbia comes up with another design. BTW, I am very happy with my other Columbia shorts and I still wear them. They fit much better.
I do not recommend this product.

Hi there. I ordered several shorts styles for my husband. While the others were deemed "relaxed" as well, these were much bigger in the tush area. Very baggy. The Permit II and Half Moon II shorts fit him very well in comparison in the seat.

Two pair purchased last year and two more this year. Quality of material and workmanship are the same............fantastic!
I have retired most of my other shorts because they no longer fit. The small amount of elastic in the waist makes a big difference for me. I grew a bit during the winter months but last year's Brewhas still fit great.
I would recommend this product.

Exactly as I expected them to be. Roomy, heavy fabric, may be too heavy for tropical climes. Great pockets and unique water bottle pocket. Would like them to be longer , at 7" inseam a bit short to my liking.
I would recommend this product.

I love the fit, quality, and pockets of the PFG Brewha II, but just wish they were a bit longer. The 7" inseam is definitely short by today's standards.

I have been wearing these shorts now for 3 summers...I farm and these shorts can take the everyday punishment that I give them...only complaint is they need more colors...Kakai, mud, a lite brown might be good choices

These are without a doubt the best shorts I have ever had the pleasure of wearing. I liked them so well that after one year, I purchased some more in different colors.

I wear these shorts all the time. They are not just for fishing. They are very well made and look good. I like the fact that they rest above the knee.

The key loop should be on the right side, my last Columbia shorts were on the right, and most people are right handed, why on left side now? The inside stitching had treads with sharp ends that needed to be snipped. Material is good, cargo pockets with Velcro instead of buttons with rope handles very good. Color selection could be better. I would buy it again,
I would recommend this product.

Nice shorts, but not the style I thought from the online description. Suggest you put the style name in the shorts so a happy customer can reorder without guessing if he is ordering the same style he is happy with and thinks he is ordering.
I would recommend this product.

These Columbia's have been my shorts-of-choice for years (model name may have been different than now) due to their quality construction, functionality, and excellent comfort. I have had pairs last multiple years through year-long use and washing; I live in a warm climate so these shorts see service the entire year. I love the hook & loop fasteners on the front cargo pockets which are a perfect size for my wallet, keys, pocket knife, etc. The deep front pockets easily accommodate large smartphones. I also like the relatively new right hip pocket which is perfect for my iPhone.
I may have purchased the last Mud-colored pair during the last sale. I would love to see two new colors: khaki and olive; I like the Sage which seems to be a cross between the two, but would love the option for 2 more distinct colors.
I would recommend this product.
