Great fit. Dry extremely quickly. Inner mesh brief is comfortable and friendly. ample pockets of good size (unlike on my TNF of similar type), and a slightly longer inseam than other similar shorts I've tried, a feature that I like.
Angled pockets are a real plus on lightweight shorts like these, which lack any heavy drape to counteract your action of trying to shove your hand into a pocket for access. My TNF shorts don't have angled pockets and ride halfway up my leg when I try to put my hand in the pocket. These Columbias work better and have a better spf rating.
Fabric: synthetic omnitech/omnishade
Price Paid: $10
