This product is perfect for my husband. The only problem we encountered is that the "black" were out of stock in his size.
I would recommend this product.

Zipper side pocket great for storage. Other pocket holds pliers perfectly. Lightweight. Will probably order more for the summer.

Blood and guts are the ones to wear when you have bloody decks. Ahi and aku blood ruin other clothes, not blood and guts, they come out clean. love all the pockets.
I would recommend this product.

I like the simpler and cleaner detailing of the I better than the II.
The cell phone pocket on the II is too snug.

I was bummed when Columbia quit selling my favorite cargo shorts, with an elastic waist. But these are a great substitute. I don't use them for fishing, I wear them for everyday casual use. Really comfortable. I just wish they weren't so pricey!
I would recommend this product.

I've have several pairs of the earlier version of the Blood & Guts shorts, and have been very pleased with them. This newest version (II) are nearly identical, although the zipper on the rear rear pocket has been replaced by a velcro flap closure. The front left cargo pocket, which previously had a velcro flap closure, now has a zippered cl0sure. The "PFG" (Performance Fishing Gear) label on the right rear pocket has now been moved to the (now wider) rear belt loop. These innocuous changes could be all be considered subtle improvements.
That said however, there was a change made to the small pocket on the right side -- the narrow one between the front and rear pockets. On the earlier version, this pocket was approximately 4.5" deep and 4" wide - the perfect size to carry my iPhone. On version II of these shorts, the pocket is slightly deeper, but is only 3" wide. My phone, with a protective case on it, is a super snug fit in this resized pocket. Perhaps it could prevent the phone from slipping out when seated, but I wish it was at least another half inch wider. This pocket was also moved down from midway between the top and bottom of the side, to almost the bottom of the side. I can live with the change, but really like the older design and placement of the side pocket better.
My wife loves the way these shorts clean up -- they're truly stain-resistant. I love them for their super comfortable fit and availability of an 8" inseam. I walk 5 miles every day and use them all summer long. I now have 5 pairs and no regrets. A few other color choices (e.g., Navy) would be appreciated.

These clean up like no other product. They fit beautifully and always look nice. They are cool and comfortable. My husband does not fish but they are perfect for everyday dirt as well as golfing.
The choice in length is an added bonus.
I would recommend this product.

These are fantastic... light weight, comfortable, quick drying, and they look great. Please make more colors! Olive or blue or something would be great, I'll buy whatever you make.
