Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect shorts! Love, love, love these shorts, and have bought 3 pair. (For reference, I'm 5'5", and 145 lbs, with weight distribution just a bit heavier thru hips, thighs and tummy. ) The substantial, yet light weight fabric makes them quick dry and durable; and the cut with a bit higher waist (just below natural waist) and drawstring flatters without suggestion of "muffin top" lol. I ordered medium and they fit perfectly. I wear them for sailing and appreciate the knee length coverage for needed aboard activities, plus sun protection when seated. Highly recommend, and only wish they came in navy blue and khaki! September 9, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Favorite shorts but material is terrible I love everything about these shorts except the quality of the material. The length, fit, front pockets, lightweight material is awesome. I've had them for about 2 months and they have pilled a lot and look terrible ..... Which makes me very sad as these are one of the most comfortable shorts I've ever owned. I'm curious to see if anyone else has had this problem or did I just get a bad batch. August 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shorts! I bought these to wear on a trip to Lake George in NY. After looking all over the web at options, I finally decided to give these a try. So happy I did! They were just what I wanted for kayaking, swimming and other lake activities. I highly recommend these! Great quality. I was a little concerned when I read the reviews about sizing and I am usually a 14 to 16 in pants. The 16 fit perfect. August 24, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very Comfortable Stretchy Hiking shorts These shorts are very flattering and comfy. They run true to size (since they are stretchy they are meant to fit snug) and they would feel super big if they didn't fit tight...so just order the size you measure out for on the size chart. They are nice and lightweight and do a great job at repelling water. They do however attract stickers very easily and came with a small snag in the material (so hopefully the material holds up). The front pockets are ok but not so deep and the back pocket is big but a large phone is very unattractive in it especially since it turns sideways while hiking....But overall these are the most comfortable hiking shorts that I have ever owned and I love that Columbia makes them in a longer length! I love the neutral color as well! I'm an avid hiker and very active and these fit my lifestyle perfectly while flattering my curves and legs! August 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great longer shorts If you are looking for a longer, comfortable, fitted but not tight shorts, these will fit the bill. I have big muscular thighs and these fit great. Kept me cool in humid summer in Central America. Washes easily and dries fast. I did go up a size. Normally a size 6 or 8 but these are 10. August 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome fit I bought the grey and the blue/purple (interesting color). The short is longer than I thought but will be worn a lot due to the versatility of the style and comfort. August 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by shorts for me I cannot say enough good about these shorts. I absolutely love the feel, the fit, and the material. Extremely comfortable and fashionable. So easy to just throw on and go. I sure wish they had more colors available (red, navy blue, pastels) I own every color they offer and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. Thank you for making such a superb product. August 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Shorts Ever! I purchased a pair of these shorts in black and was so happy with the quality, fit and comfort that I purchased 3 more pairs. I have recommended them to many friends and hope that Columbia will keep them in their clothing offerings. July 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wm's Anytime Shorts - Make More Colors! OK Folks, I live in these shorts during summers in Florida. They are lightweight, comfortable and modest enough to wear around town. I have these shorts in black, khaki and gray. I would really like to have a pair in both navy and dark brown. No one wants white shorts. Please add some more dark colors that are easy to mix and match. July 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by best shorts ever! I got 3 pairs of these shorts for a trip to Hawaii with my family! They did not disappoint! So comfortable and light weight. Water repels and they have a nice stretch to them, yet do not stretch out. I wore them on the airplane both ways to Kauai from Tennessee (LONG day of flying) and they felt great! I love the length as well. I am a 50 something woman and don't love my thighs, so I got the 13 inch length. They hit me right above the knee. Don't hesitate to buy these shorts!! You'll be glad you did! July 25, 2016
