These shorts are perfect for everyday and especially for vacations. They have the ability to hold several brochures without bulk...my husband loves them! He has a pair from years ago and he says these fit even better.
I would recommend this product.

I was looking for comfortable shorts that weren't too long or too short in the inseam. Looked high and low and several other Columbia choices. The fabric is light without being flimsy and the length is great. My own adjustable waist handles the Velcro and loop belt system quite well ..........!
I would recommend this product.

I have loved this style of sport/ utility short. The fabric dries
quickly when wet and dissipates heat better than all others of a utility nature. Every part of the design is engineered for maximum comfort and smart utility. A unique solution for maximum form and function, however I remembered when there were more colors and I could get them in Medium. I cannot find the other colors and in this site;. only one color in my size! MEDIUM!
I would recommend this product.

My husband (inseam of 31")does not like the NEW shorts with the longer legs, as they hang below his knees. This style is his favorite! He has not been able to find these in the Columbia stores as they seem to always be out of his size. Apparently, lots of other men like them, too! Thank heavens for the online store! The pair that I just threw away were from the first year that this style was made (I believe early 90's), and they were literally held together with thread!The shorts fabric was still intact, but, the pockets were worn through and threadbare. This fabric wears like iron! Now that I have found the online store, he will not be allowed to keep shorts as long as he has these. Great product!!!
I would recommend this product.

After the reading the reviews I thought this shorts would run small. I bought them anyway hoping my husband would slim down a little to fit in them. Only they weren't small at all. They were so huge my husband was swimming in them!
I also didn't like the big elastic waste band. They remind me of toddler shorts.
I do like the blue though. I hope Columbia continues to make this color. I wanted blue shorts to match the blue floppy hat I bought.
I do not recommend this product.

I ordered these shorts for our son because he LOVES the pair he has. We ordered the exact same size as his fossil pair and were extremely disappointed that the sage pair was way too small. Since we are on the east coast, it was expensive to mail them back. We will not be ordering again because we do not trust the sizes.

Returned them because I found the material irritating to my skin. Also could not keep wallet in back pocket because the back pocket is not a secure space.

About size being small
Posted June 29, 2013
I read the comments about size being small. They are but I found by doing the measurements suggested and then going to size chart they fit perfectly.

I wear these shorts almost daily during the summer. I wear them fishing offshore every trip. These shorts are durable, I have several pair that are 5 or more years old. I have a 30" inseam and really love the length of these shorts. Being 46 years old, I don't like my shorts past my knees. I have a 32" waist and wear a small in these shorts.
I would recommend this product.

The half moon shorts are the greatest shorts made for active sportsman. Fishing, hiking, biking even golf . They fit great, no tight buttons, comfortable waist band, plenty of pockets, quick to dry if you get wet. Just wish you had more colors.
I would recommend this product.

I am a fan of Columbia clothing in the past. After this purchase, I am disappointed. The material does not carry the same quality I have known in the past.
I do not recommend this product.

I've purchase and worn these short for over nine years. There great and don't have buttons(I do not like buttons on shorts). The stiching at bottom of leg needs to be improved; tape and double stich recommended.
I would recommend this product.
