I got my first pair of these shorts 2-3 weeks ago, and really like them. Good fit, well put together, and extremely comfortable. I'm going out to buy more!
I would recommend this product.

...I really did. I have lots of Columbia pants, shorts, and shirts, and I am their definition of a Medium. The design of these shorts was perfect for me, a left hander. The wallet pocket was located on the left hip, perfect for me. The cell phone pocket on the right hip was great. Material and workmanship were fine, up to Columbia standards. But the fit was terrible. The medium was way large, hung on my hips, requiring a belt and never starting to stretch the elastic waist. The legs were very large, making my legs look like sticks. Oh well, back they went, three pair. C'mon, Columbia, all of America hasn't gotten huge! A medium should still be a medium...
I do not recommend this product.

I had a pair of the original Brewha Shorts for many years and when I could not obtain them locally from any outlets I ordered a pair on line. The new shorts are very similar and have all the same great features with three exceptions; 1) they only have one regular full size pocket in the back, 2) the material is a little lighter weight and 3) the zipper is a smaller, plastic and lower grade than the original, large metal zipper.
I do not recommend this product.

very good shorts. wish I had another pair like them but with an inch or two longer inseam. Usually have to wear a belt as they are slightly loose around the waist

I have had Colombia cargo shorts in the past and have been very happy. The fabric in the Brewha short is improved. Adequate pockets in front. Would give this an excellent rating if they had two large pockets in the rear instead of one small
I would recommend this product.

I bought these as a replacement for my husband's "Half - Moon" shorts which he loved so much he wore them out. The length is good and fine fabric but just don't have the look that he prefers. They run true to size.

Love these shorts for everyday use in the forest and in urban life. Floating 'envelope' rear left pocket is not sewn into place, therefore you do not have to sit on your wallet. Right side rear pocket is perfect for smartphone, even when sitting. All front pockets are functional and roomy. Repair small holes/tear immediately, as little tears quickly become large ones, as most cotton clothing does. I still love this short enough to get 3 pair this time.
I would recommend this product.

I bought a pair of Columbia shorts 5 years ago, and they quickly became my favorite shorts. This year they finally became so old and ripped that I had to replace them. I got these shorts last week. They seem to be the same style of shorts as my old ones, only updated.
I like the new shorts very much. My old shorts were Med, and I got Med in these. They fit well. They are well constructed, and I like the large pockets to carry things when I hike. The right hand rear pocket is a little odd, but I rarely use that pocket anyway. I would highly recommend these shorts.
I would recommend this product.

Purchased 2 pairs, one pair the stitching on the zipper was not intact. I called in but they didn't have another Sage pair in stock. I went ahead and ordered another pair of the stone color and my lovely wife will stitch the new pair with the problem. I have had a couple of pairs of these shorts in the past and they are by far the best all around shorts I have ever owned for wear, tear and being comfortable. I have never worn a pair out, just made them less then presentable with paint and grease stain! Great shorts, I'm sure I will be purchasing more in the future.
I would recommend this product.

My husband has been wearing a 10+year old pair of stone colored Columbia shorts..."suddenly" they began to show some wear in the fabric. He hates the long, baggy, butt-bearing jean shorts that are so in style right now. Searching Columbia's website, I hoped to find the same or similar style to the oldies. The Brewha -style proved to be perfect for both function and comfort....especially the 7.5-inch inseam, the real reason we ordered 2 pair . Just perfect for a 5'10" old guy. He wondered what the little elasticized pocket was for...a cell phone fits perfectly in it. A perfect meeting of 2 oldies!
I would recommend this product.

I recently purchased two more pair of the Brewha shorts, the two pair that I already owned are getting worn and faded from the sun and constant use. These shorts are functional, durable and comfortable too. I would recommend these shorts to anyone.

The quality is excellent and that is what I expected from Columbia but the waist size with the elastic makes them feel so bulky. I wear a 38 waist but the Brewha elastic band and excess fabric can easily fit up to a 44 waist. The previous style, Cliff Lakes, had a perfect fit. Why do companies like Columbia have to "Improve" a product that was perfect in the first place.

These were bought to replace a few older pairs, styles no longer available. Cotton, medium length. The elastic waist makes the
short comfortable but not as attractive. (the older pairs had a smaller amount of elastic) The leg openings seem extra wide. Bring back the old style ( from 2003?!). They were perfect
and lasted forever.
There were no numbered sizes and the L seems much larger than a normal 36.
I would recommend this product.

My husband used Brewha shorts for 20 years, until you recently changed to the "Small-Medium-Large" sizing. Size large is a bit too small, but size XL is way too large. Many men really need that bit of elastic in the waist, and the Brewha is one of the few that still do have that. Please go back to the regular waist sizing system for this short!
I do not recommend this product.
