Description

The ultimate short for your outdoor endeavors.

Omni-Shield technology protects the Columbia Men’s Roc Short from dirt and stains when you can’t resist getting too close to nature. Omni-Shade UPF 50 sun protection lets you enjoy the relaxed feel of the Roc, even when shade is scarce. A side zip pocket keeps your keys in place when gravity and thick brush challenge you to a duel and after you’re done harmonizing with Gaia you can head into town and hit your favorite burger spot without looking like a wild man.

Fine Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I love the Ultimate Roc Pants and so I thought why not give the shorts a try?

While the pants are great for just about every environment I've found (work, hiking, lounging, weddings, etc.), I feel like the shorts are a lot more specific in the settings that they're designed for. Basically, they're dad shorts. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Columbia found a photo album of my dad wearing shorts from the late 80's to early 90's and designed these shorts to look and feel like what my dad was wearing. The only different is that these have updated pockets.

Fine shorts, just not for me.

Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I may have a different pair, but anyway I bought 7 pair of these shorts for work as a uniform short. Great stuff, cell phone fits in the little lower pocket perfectly. Sizing is spot on a 32 is a 32. No issues with these shorts, Columbia did well with these.

The shorts in the picture look like the Columbia Roc II Short, which are a great pair of shorts (I am currently wearing some now) but are pretty similar to the Ultimate Roc Short.

Overall good, not great, shorts. Medium plus weight. Loose fit. Snap opens inadvertently at times. button would be better. Good length and pockets. Utility type shorts - not great for hiking or other active sports.

You can't go wrong

Columbia gear is often hit or miss...these shorts are a definite hit. True to size. I like them for daily wear...they are a little heavy for hiking, etc.

Roc Short

Excellent shorts,nice lightweight shorts. Money well spent

I am looking for a short that has narrower...

I am looking for a short that has narrower legs, as everything seems to be the same width at the bottom. I have skinny legs and baggy does not look good. Does anyone know of a Columbia short that is like this?

Best Answer Responded on

These are relaxed fit (as a lot of Columbia gear is). If you want an active, outdoors pair of shorts that are somewhat more fitted, I'd look at something from Patagonia, North Face, or Kavu. I have shorts from all three brands that are more fitted in the legs. Be sure to check the fit in the description, though.

The Columbia Harper Trail will suit this request quite handily. it is built to move and stretch without billowing (?)

Hooray- Snap closure

Love the shorts especially the snap closure. I have difficulty with buttons and these are amazing for me. Very few companies use snaps and these hold closed all day. The fabric is comfortable, great color choices, and true to size.

Rocs Rock

Normally I'm not a Columbia guy. I got these because of the price and color. The suede looks awesome. These are incredibly comfortable and look really good. I am very happy with them. They are a little bit big, I got the 30's and normally wear that size. One gripe: a snap instead of button. Otherwise... they are perfect. Hit right above the knee.

Excellent shorts

These shorts are very comfortable, and I love the side pockets. Highly recommended.

Nice Shorts!

These shorts are great. Come with a nice water repellant treatment. The small pocket on the left is PERFERT to drop in an iPod Nano, and because of its partially overlapping design, it wont fall out! I dont have any wrinkling issues, just take em out of the dryer promptly and no worries. Think I'm gona grab a couple more pairs.

Don't waste your money

The Ultimate Roc Short replaces the original Roc Short. The Ultimate Roc Short does not even come close to the quality and durability of the original. The material is very thin, zippers stick, and wrinkles easily. This is not the quility you would expect from Columbia. If you really like the original and you can find them buy them up. Columbia said they are not making the original any longer.

Awesome. Great fit and good look - nice pockets

I haven't had any problems with the zippers but they do wrinkle really bad.

Responded on

I agree the original shorts ROCKED! The heavyweight fabric and the hidden zipper pocket were awesome. They don't make them like they used too.
