ColumbiaPalmerston Peak Short - Men's

Jump in.

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

        Unanswered Question

        How big/deep is the zippered pocket on the left leg (not the side pockets) - can it comfortably fit a wallet and a cell phone?

        Excellent Play Shorts

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Medium

        I use these shorts as a combo SUP short / go to town short. They dry extremely fast (do they even stay wet?). If I splash on the SUP, I'm dry by the time i get to shore. The pockets are mesh and will hold all I need to go for Lunch after a session on the lake. I have a 32" inseam and the 11" shorts hit right at my knees.

        Great Work Shorts

        I gave these to my brother in law as a gift to use at the gym he works at, and here is what he had to say about them, "I am 5’8” and 179 lbs, and these shorts are a true to size as they come. I am usually a size L, I usually wear a size 34 waist in my pant size and the Large fits perfectly. I got the 9” length and they come down just below the knee. The shorts are strong and durable and the adjustable belt is awesome. They have two front pockets which are deep enough to hold my screw driver, and various tools I use at work. The shorts are also strong enough that they don’t fall down when i cary my tools. They also have one cargo pocket on the front left leg. They have a mesh lining inside, perfect for swimming sports. They are not much of a daily wear pant, but great for water sports and work with the quick dry material."

        Good swim shorts that aren't flashy

        I got these shorts for my man as a replacement to a very old pair columbia swim trunks. These are great. They're an appropriate length - not geeky short, but also not past the knee. These are plain enough to be worn around town after a day on the river or at the beach, so no need to pack a change of clothes. I like these compared to board shorts which can be nice in the water, but can be a bit loud for someone who's not 20 anymore. I caution you to look at the size chart. He's usually a large in stuff like this, but the large is listed as a 36 waist. I got the medium which are just fine with the belt adjustment.

        Great shorts

        Fit great, good length, and secure pocket for keys while on the river.

        Really nice swim shorts for sure. Love the adjustable strap and the fashion is simple but stylish. Definitely recommend these.
