Women’s Down the Path™ Short is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought two pair! I loved my first pair of these shorts so much that I purchased a second pair!! I love the little moose pattern. I am tall and slim, so the length of these shorts look great. I get compliments all the time - which I find funny because I just got them for hiking! They are great for hiking but also cute for an around-town laid-back look! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Down the Path I absolutely love these shorts! For hiking, gardening, kayaking...everything! Fit is flattering and they dry super fast too. I plan to buy another pair in a different color, highly recommend. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from order your reg size Other reviews said these shorts were sized small so I ordered a 12 instead of a 10. I would have been fine with the 10. The 6" inseam leg is not tight, I have plenty of room. I am 5'9" and 143 lbs,usually wear 8/10. The print on the pocket is really cute, patch pockets flattering in back. May order the 10 and give the 12 to daughter. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Super cute...super small I love the print! Very cute! However...they run very small especially if you carry your weight in thighs and bottom. I thought I was crazy and kept staring at tags when the Saturday Trail pants not only fit but had plenty extra space and in the same size these wouldn't even come up over my thighs! Numbers don't bother me, but the inaccuracy definitely made me not trust ordering any pants from here online due to my figure. Be on guard if you are a pear shape!! Even the sizes up just didn't work for my shape. So glad I went in the store and didn't end up having to send them back! Really cute though!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Short and small... These shorts did not fit as you would expect given the inseam length. They were way too short. They were also very tight, especially in the hips. I have worn this size in Columbia shorts before...in fact, I have a pair on right now that is the same "size". No comparison.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beware of size I bought these shorts a size larger than I normally wear. The waist barely fit and the thighs were tight. I wear a size 6 usually and bought an 8. I think the next size up would've fit. They looked good and were made of comfortable material. I'm sorry I couldn't keep them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fit small I found these fit a bit tight, in future I would order up a size. Incentive to lose some weight, I guess. Otherwise, great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Longer length available Love the longer length but they are just a tiny bit snug in the thighs that makes them less comfortable than the other water shorts offered by Columbia.
