Palmerston Peak Short

A road-trip through Yellowstone wouldn't be complete without throwing yourself off the rocks and into the Firehole River. The rolling water is just warm enough to be comfortable and just cool enough to be refreshing. The Columbia Palmerston Peak Shorts have the quick-drying fabric, straightforward style, and adventure-ready function you need.


  • Built-in mesh brief gives you a bit of support
  • Omni-Shade UPF 50 shields you from the sun's harmful rays
  • Security pocket holds your keys so you won't lose them at the bottom of the river
  • Item #COL3692
integrated belt

Not the best belt + runs large

Not a fan of Columbia' solution for a belt on this one + it runs large. Otherwise it is a good pair of shorts.

Great Shorts

I live in St. George, Utah and own seven pairs of these shorts in various colors. I love them for everyday wear and for hiking and general low level sports activity. The liner brief is a nice additional touch that only improves upon the shorts comfort. I wear these shorts on a daily basis year round and could not recommend them more highly if you are looking for a great all around pair of shorts

another hit

I have had 4-5 columbia shorts & or water shorts. All have been great. Yes, different in design but the quality is first rate i.e. columbia quality. A great value. HIghly recommended.

I have 8 pairs and wear these shorts almost every day

I live on Hawaii island and wear these shorts almost every day. I bought 6 pairs about 4 or 5 years ago and they are still holding up though faded. I just bought 2 more for “dress up”. BTW- I wish you still made a khaki green color.

Nice shorts - wrong color

I love the shorts - I have 4 pair - but these came in, what I thought, was the wrong color so I had to return & ask for the correct color. Hope they come

Almost There

This material is nice and cool and the shorts fit as sized. My main issue is the “cargo” pocket on the left is undersized and doesn’t fit an iPhone max. I would like to see a drained pocket added to the right and both enlarged, keep the pocket zippers for extra security. I’m in search for the perfect travel, cargo short but have yet to land on it. The mesh liner is perfect! Think about it: much cooler in a hot climate, one less underwear to pack (we travel light with backpacks), allows for a dip in the pool or ocean, doubles as your casual short, has belt for securing, sun protection, etc. Coulmbia used to offer a short similar to their Silver Ridge that had a mesh liner, pockets with drains, and built in belt (not belt loops). I owned almost every color. Bring back something like that, and I’m all in!
