Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Looking and Good Fit Columbia ware is always great so this pair of shorts stays consistent with that statement. The fit and comfort are perfect for yoga but I can also go shopping afterwards because they are stylish and not revealing. August 31, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by love the material I love these shorts, but I wish I had gotten a size larger. I am 5'11" and weigh 140 lbs and the waist is a bit small for me. Usually I'm a MED or size 10. But the feel and functionality is great. I hope you'll offer them in different colors. August 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love them. Was very pleased with the shorts, exceeded my expectations. The sizing for me is right on target for a more athletic build. Waistband is comfortable and secure. Love the pocket on the side for storage. August 25, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Sits below waist, short rise Nicely constructed, and made of substantial fabric, but at least for me, I found that the waistband sits too low, just above my hips, and that the rise is too short to be comfortable. I'm returning them, and will select another style. I'm an athletic body type, at 5'6, and 145 lbs, just as a guide to how they may fit others. August 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these - wish there were more colors! I purchased a pair in the store and came home to order another pair online. I would order even more if they came in more colors!! Love the fit - shirts can lay flat since there isn't a zipper/button. Fabulous shorts. August 23, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Recomended I am 5'4'' 130lb ordered M, not as tight as I thought but comfortable. August 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super comfy Very comfy, very breathable fabric, great for working in the yard or long walks August 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE! These shorts were the perfect way to an outdoorsy summer. I took them camping, hiking, river rafting and the sort and they were great. I also love wearing them out in normal life and are very slimming and functional. August 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice I love these pants. The fabric is so comfortable and flattering to the figure. I just wish they had pockets! 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. Thank you for making such a superb product. August 3, 2016
