Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PAIR OF SHORTS I wear this everyday super comfortable they are good for swimming

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I already had a pair of Columbia shorts that I love to wear when I'm fishing or just on the boat and I love them. I'm going on a cruise in a few weeks so I bought the blue and red pair to double as swim trunks and fishing shorts. They're great, dry fast, drawstring, have deep pockets, and sizes are true (I wear a 30 so the M size is perfect).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great comfort! I bought these for my boyfriend, and he can wear them in the water or with a casual tshirt out to eat! you can really wear a lot with these shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Swim Shorts Ever This is the 3rd or 4th time buying these swim shorts. I keep coming back for more colors. They rarely make it in the water though. I wear them as regular shorts. I am a guy in my 60's and needed something I could wear without any underware. When you get older things go south, and tend to not stay in one place anymore. Because they are swim shorts they have the mesh lining which does the trick. I love the fabric, any dirt seems to brush right off. They never stain. I love that they look just like regular shorts, no extra colors or trim that scream swim wear. These are the only shorts I wear in the summer, period! I don't care much for the bright neon colors though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts for the whole family Bought my son 2 pairs of these shorts. He liked them so much, I got some for my husband and even a pair for me. They fit great. Dry quickly, double as a swim suit and are the perfect new short length. We now own them in 5 different colors. Highly recommend them!

I see someone in the reviews wears a 30 and the mediums fit him well. I'm a 34. Is the size chart accurate or should I order a large?

If I'm 5 foot 4 inches, would they cut off above my knee?

Asked by: DFont
I believe they would cut off just above your knee. I'm 5' 8" and they are at least 4 inches above my knee.

If I normally wear a 28 size waist will a 30 waist be ok? 

Asked by: DFont
Hello Sox1, The Columbia Sportswear Men's Backcast III Swim Short in size small should work fine for you since you can use the inner drawstring to adjust the waist size.
