Great when not trying to look like a frat boy at the beach. They pretty much look like regular shorts when not in the water. The zippered pocket is nice for stuff like a credit card style room key that can get wet, but not get lost. They dry really fast which is a plus. The belt is not an actual belt that goes all the way around your waist, it kind of attaches to an elastic piece inside the waistband. The design makes them a lot more comfortable, just don't plan on clipping much on your waist on anything like that. These shorts are typical Columbia quality so if the style fits your taste, the performance will not disappoint.
I love these shorts! They're comfortable in the water, they dry quickly, and the zipper pockets make storing things very convenient. The waistband adjusts very quickly and easily. I'm a 5'10" 32 waist and the large fits comfortably, and goes almost down to my knees.
