Was initially skeptical of the button, but it has held up so far without issues. Fit true to size and not too tight. Soft durable fabric was comfortable yet not too delicate for getting the job done. I've had a lot of Columbia products over the years and they rarely disappoint.

Fit true to size, durable, launder well, one complaint - although a novel idea, the 'canvas rivet' style closure does pop open fairly often, a good old fashioned button closure would be better.

I've bought a couple pairs of these shorts. Fit true to size. Comfortable. Not an active wear short, but great for every day use.

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.

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.

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.

Ultimate roc shorts

Love them. Lighter weight material, water beads up on them. Very comfortable!

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

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.

Ultimate Roc Shorts

Great shorts for any activity. Very comfortable.

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.
