Columbia Sportswear Global Adventure Short Reviews:


Best Shorts EVER. Seriously. (Read This)

These shorts are amazing. Bought them online on a whim, as the title and material caught my eye. These look GREAT, and I've received a ton of compliments on them. Extremely versatile - I've worn these for hiking or kayaking, and turned around the next day and worn them to a graduation party or a wedding rehearsal. Material sits nicely, breathes great, repels water, and is fast drying. Also, the mesh pockets make them light and airy. The zipper pocket is perfect for cash or cell phone or passport.

The only complaint (well, it's very minor) is that the wallet pocket is too deep. If you put a wallet there, it bounces around a lot because its deep and made of mesh material. I choose to just carry cash or my license in these shorts and keep my iPhone in the side pockets. Did I mention, GREAT SHORTS!

I don't do many reviews, but these shorts are too good to be true. I wear them almost EVERY DAY after work for walking the dog, and on weekends they are my new "go to" pair of shorts for activity as well as leisure / casual. From a guy who sweats relatively easily, the light and airy feel are a dream come true. It's like cheating a bit, and not even WEARING PANTS! Or...getting away with wearing your favorite pair of running shorts out in casual settings.

Well worth the price of admission. I also got free shipping and spent enough to get an REI loyalty gift card during a member sale, which sweetened the deal even more.

Highly recommended, from a guy who doesn't do reviews very often. Get them!

Super lightweight, very comfortable

Husband bought these for summer trip to Italy and they got a trial run yesterday in 95 degree weather. Very cool and lightweight and they will be great for travel--wash and dry so quickly. His only complaint concerns the mesh pockets which offer no soft layer between car keys, phone, etc and his legs! Stitching seems very good quality and they are nicely tailored looking too.

These shorts are just Jim-Dandy

I am an avid sailor, coach and race official. These shorts are perfect for being on a boat. Much better than the dumpy looking cargo shorts. They move well, breathe and dry quickly.

super lightweight and good fit

Nice shorts that you can dress up or down. I have both colors and they are the most comfortable shorts I have.
