Positive experience with ROC Shorts

They are cut so they fit well in the waist (36" for me) and button at my actual waist unlike some other Columbia Shorts (e.g. Blood And Guts Stretch Shorts). The material is medium weight so okay for warm CA weather. Because they have a lot of cotton in the fabric they do wrinkle while wearing which can be a downside in a more dressy situation. Not sure why they are called "Flex". But would buy them again at the right price.

Great all round short

Love these shorts. 4 pairs now. Prefer the 10" to the 8" as I have long legs, Strong and versatile. Great for hiking, beach and the city. Good hidden security pocket for passport, cell or wallet. Wash real easy, don't shrink and don't even iron them.

Had to return. Ordered 34 and it is missized to at least 35-36. Others ordered same Roc Flex shorts sz 34 of abyss and light tan were sized correctly.

Stretch Fabric & New Taper = Gamechanger

Ignore the reviews claiming the stretchy fabric and new fit is a negative. It is ESSENTIAL. I've been wearing ROC shorts for years, and previously I'd have to replace them every 2 years like clockwork. The crotch would rip out every time. Now, I don't have to fear jumping up in my truck bed. The stretch allows for significantly more range of motion and durability, and the slight taper now enables max accentuation/flaunting of quads. GET THEM!

Great Hiking Shorts

Great shorts. Good fit. Not a fan of cargo shorts but these have 4 pockets with a zipped pocket for small wallet. Plus has a phone pocket.

Poor Quality Control

Been buying ROC shorts and pants for a very long time. The style is great, but the switch to stretch fabric caused problems. Since the switch several years ago, quality control has tanked. Now the sizing is a crap shoot. I just purchased two pairs of each, all with a 32 waist. Three fit perfectly, but one pair of shorts is about an inch bigger. Also, the fabric does not hold up as well/long. If Columbia ever offers ROC Classic, I'm in.
