Setting out on a camping trip or hike without the Columbia Boys' Half Moon Embroidered Short is like going on a fishing trip without a rod; it's just not the same without them. Cotton calico fabric remains light and breathable in warm weather, ideal for quick-drying comfort. He'll be able to store sunscreen, fishing lures, sunglasses, and other gear in the front mesh pockets and four slash pockets. Wide leg openings and an elastic waistband make these shorts easy to romp around in and grow into. All-over shark or marlin embroidery lends a little style to these otherwise purely rugged shorts.
