These shorts are way to tight to do any distance walking in. I walk 3 or 4 miles a day and when I tried them on, I couldn't walk 20 feet without them rubbing against the front part of my leg. Very disappointing, as I've bought other shorts and long pants from Columbia without any problem remotely similar. In this case, for my trouble I had to pay UPS $6.20 to send them back.

Very cheap looking shorts. No phone pocket. Material scratches. Disappointing.

Light weight and not to hot when your fishing. Also the blood and guts wash right out which is aswome.

I have been hunting for a good pair of durable shorts and these are awesome. The material has a great feel and the cut is actually flattering. My wife says I look hot in these!
My only complaint, and it is a general complaint about all of Columbia pants/shorts is that they put in the size tag in the center rear of the waistband. That sucks as when ever you bend over, the tag is right in your butt crack. The first thing I do when I get pants/shorts from Columbia is cut the stupid tag out. If Columbia reads these reviews, please move the tag to the side!

These are the most comparable shorts that I own. Great fit and comfortable when exercising, hiking or doing yardwork. More of a casual pair of shorts. I originally ordered two pair and like them so much I ordered two more pairs. I am between a size 36 and 38

Love these shorts and I don't even fish. Bought a pair at Dick's Sporting Goods along with a couple of other styles. These are my favorites, hands down

Great shorts. I like that they have the elastic in waist band. I just wish they were offered in more colors.

Recommended with this caution:
I was very disappointed to find the right back/side pocket was changed compared to the Blood & Guts II. Before it was a great pocket to put my cell phone into. in B&G III, it is only a tool pocket and definitely won't fit my cell phone. I still like the product, but wish the B&G II pocket would be brought back. I don't understand why that useful pocket was changed. I will be looking for alternative products that have a cell phone pocket.

These have got to be some of the most comfortable shorts on the market today! Great for on and off the water applications. Most of my kayak fishing gear is long sleeve and long pants. However, these are so comfortable that I wear my shorts with lots of sunscreen along with the Columbia PFG long sleeve fishing shorts and stay cool and comfortable....Thanks Columbia for an awesome product!!
