Columbia Men's Blood and Guts™ Short

Cleaning your catch usually results in dirtying your clothes. Not with these durable shorts—the lightweight ripstop fabric resists stains, dries fast, and even comes with built-in sun protection.

I like these. I'm a short, 5-5. I ordered the 30 waist and 8 inseam which is just right for me. If you're taller than say 5-6 then you should probably go with the 10 inseam. I like the material and function. There's a cargo pocket on the left side. I would prefer having one on the right side too. There also seems to be a cellphone pocket on the right side but it doesn't have a closure. Overall though, very good.
I would recommend this product.

Very disappointed in the selection size. No 36" in the 10" length in any color. Is this going to be a dicontinued item?? These shorts are very comfortable, easy to clean and fit great.
Only problem is I cannot get the size I need.
I would recommend this product.

The only complaint, and it's a small one, is the small side pocket. An old pair I own had an elastic strip that closed the pocket a little bit and helped keep things in that pocket. I personally use it for my cell phone. The new pocket has no elastic and I find my phone falls out when I sit or have to squat down for things. Otherwise, the shorts perform perfectly, are very comfortable and they fit perfectly to size.
I would recommend this product.

I made a mistake and ordered the 8" length. Don't do it unless you're traveling back to the 80's. Otherwise I'm sure this product is perfectly fine.

Have purchased several pairs of these shorts over the past several years. They are excellent -- comfortable and lightweight. They're durable and don't fade with repeated washings. The elastic waistband is a big plus. The pockets are excellent, especially the zippered right rear pocket is a nice touch. They look great and fit well. This is truly a great product.

With my short and stocky statue, I often have difficulty finding shorts that are not too long or baggy. These shorts are a perfect and very comfortable fit. I kayak fish alot and want comfort when sitting for 5-6 hours at a time. These Blood n Guts shorts are the perfect item.....ordered 1 of every color to finish out the summer!
I would recommend this product.

Seems to be well thought out and constructed and has enough pocket space even without a right hand cargo pocket. The spacious RH hip pocket is plenty big enough for my Galaxy S III.

I've since bought 4 more pairs of these shorts they are great, was a little worried at first about the higher knee "I'm not used to shorts that go above the knee" but they turned out to be much more comfortable then others "longer" shorts I have. I'd recommend these shorts for anyone that is active!

The lightweight fabric is perfect for Hot weather days. I live in the Southwest and fabric light this is just what I have been looking for. I will be adding more Columbia clothing. I bought my first Columbia pants in Telluride, Colorada several years ago.

Because I am short and stocky, I have a very hard time finding shorts that have both a low rise and small inseam. I was hoping these shorts would fit the bill. However, unless my belt is cinched tight, these shorts have a tendency to ride low and the legs impede walking. Nothing wrong with the product or delivery... as I said, I am a tough size to fit and these didn't quite do it for me.
I do not recommend this product.

Light weight - almost feels like you aren't wearing anything! Very comfortable. No rear pocket flaps to get bent out of shape. Secure zippers where you want them.
Wish there were more color selections.

I ordered these as I put on some extra weight. They fit well and wash well. There is a finer cloth made for fishing which is what I really wanted, but I find these to be an excellent fit, great finish and they look well. Did I mention... I don't iron, and that is what I expect in my hi-tech clothing.
I would recommend this product.

I've owned the blood and guts before and liked them for there reputation of stain resistance and my new ones were put to the test yesterday. Not only does the fish blood and grime wash off after a day of extreme fishing but somehow when I wore these shorts for the first day I somehow got grease on them from the seat post in my boat. After the day of fishing I through them in the wash and crossed my fingers that the grease smear would come out and I can honestly say that when I pulled these shorts out I couldn't find any trace of grease whatsoever on these shorts.WOW! You can bet that there will be more bought in the future.
I would recommend this product.

I realy love these shorts. Very cool and comfortable and easy to clean fish mess off. The ony beef i have is same with a lot of Columboa products. I have been wearing size 38 in these shorts for some time. I order new ones in 38 and the are way too tight. Had to order 40 to get same fit. I find this too much and frustrating with Columbia
I would recommend this product.

First pair of "blood and Guts"shorts. Wore them for two weeks straight while fishing the rivers of northern New Hampshire. They are great for wading because they do not hold water and dry extremely fast. They don't stain and look good enough to wear for casual attire. I plan on purchasing another pair. My only suggestion would be to taper the leg otherwise a great product and performs as advertised.
I would recommend this product.

I've only had these shorts for about a week, but as soon as I put them on they became my favorite. They are super light breathable and water just bounces off of them. They also have the 8" inseam which is perfect if your a little bit shorter and you want something that you can move in. I'm 5'7" and sometimes its a little hard not to find something that hangs over my knee and makes me look ridiculous.
The one draw back has got to be the depth of the pockets. WAY to shallow! My phone falls out if I just sit down, very annoying. But for shorts that I can wear everyday and run in. its not so bad.
I have yet to try out the "blook'n'guts" feature, but hopefully things will just bounce off, because lord know I'm a slob.
I would recommend this product.
