Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight summer short This is my third pair of the Silver Ridge Cargo shorts - use for hiking or casual dress. Lightweight and quick drying - perfect for summer. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You'll love the Silver Ridge cargo short My husband works in a hot warehouse in Hawaii. These are not the only shorts that keep him cool but he also loves the fit and softness of the material. He also uses them for Golf. We cannot find any other short out there for him to wear. He's been wearing these for 10 yrs. You will not be disappointed in getting these. Also the colors are true to the pictures also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my shorts! These are very comfortable and work well on the beach as well as on mountain hikes. My phone and wallet are secure in the pockets, while being easily opened when needed. They dry quickly when wet, and these shorts are light weight and very adaptable in various weather situations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I find this product has excellent quality and fits very nicely. Shipping of the product was extremely fast (delivered on the 2nd day) It is a little pricey, but would recommend (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for Wanted some ultra-lightweight shorts for day hiking during our scorching summer months. These fit that requirement perfectly. The breath extremely well and dry quickly when wet. As for fit, I'm 6'4" 225lbs and found the 38 tall fits me exactly, hitting just at the knee and not too slim or too baggy. There is a very cheap 'belt' included, but don't expect that to last long. I liked the first pair so much I bought a second and use both regulary

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pair of Cargo Shorts The shorts fit well and are very comfortable. The "built-in" belt is nice with a good buckle. The shorts are drying quickly (unexpected storm on a Sunday) and have some stretch. The button feels solid and the zipper is good. The only improvement I can see is the cargo pockets, that do not expand. Overall these cargo shorts are a great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 pairs I'm 65 and wear shorts daily and want cargo shorts because hate a wallet in my back pockets. I had 2 pair from the older versions and loved them better than the cotton cargo shorts I own. Living in Texas, I want something lighter and a less weight with the humidity we have here so bought 3 more pair when they went on sale. I like the newer version of the silver ridges nearly as well as the older versions. I like the zipper pockets and wish they were on the right pocket also. Very handy when traveling.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Day On The Boat These are strictly made to get wet. Fish net pockets eat keys, otherwise, they appear to be made to shed water. Built in snap buckle belt will hold up your shorts, don't clip on any weight such as a phone. I wish I had seen these in store first, best use on around water, as usual were your other shorts when on dry land with your wallet, phone etc...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from He Loves Them! My husband had never worn Columbia Sportswear shorts made from a lightweight fabric. He was convinced cotton was the only comfortable fabric for warm weather. I purchased 3 pair and he loves them. He is 6' 5" tall and while the 10 inch length works he was most satisfied with the 12 inch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Silver ridge shorts Extremely comfortable and lightweight. These shorts dry very quickly and are true to size. I will be buying a few more pairs of these, and I highly recommend them to anyone else.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from They keep getting cheeper The shorts are light weight and comfortable. The problems; the belt buckle is hard to unlatch and the belt is very slippery so when I tighten it it just slides back out. To few belt loops, the belt tends to fall out when unbuckled. The front pockets are mesh and anything like a key gets stuck in the holes. Every time companies release a new version of this type of shorts the pockets get smaller. The zipper on the fly is hard to slide as well as the pocket zipper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shorts These shorts fit good, and are very light weight. Very comfortable to wear in the heat. The length is okay but it would be nice if them came a little longer. That is the only downside to these shorts.
Date published: 2017-06-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Shorts I bought these shorts a size too large because I read they run a bit small. I usually wear a 34" but purchased the 36" waist size instead, perfect fit!!! The 12" inseam was perfect for me as the ends of the shorts land just above my knee. The shorts are very light, but also made of very durable and comfortable material. I will buy a few more pair for sure!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very lite weight and comfortable!! Love these shorts, have wore'em everyday now since I have received them. I go for a hike everyday after work at a local park. It's been warm lately, have a tendency to sweat on my back and waistline. My other shorts would always be wet in the back around the waistline, but not these. Today it was 95, humid, windy and kept comfortable and dry. Normally wear a 34 but we're a bit tight so went to a 36, PERFECT! Also, I love the longer length option in this pair of shorts. Thank you all at Columbia for designing a great pair of shorts. There is the gear up sale going on now, hopefully I can find another pair in the size and color I want. If so....SOLD!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome shorts I love these shorts! They are my go to pair when hiking or camping. The material is light enough that it doesn't have you sweating in it, but heavy enough that when I go camping it can handle everything I throw at it. I'll probably buy a few more pairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and quality Bought these for my sons. They fit both boys well - one is thin and the other stocky. These shorts have just enough elastic give in the waist. The length is perfect for both boys - one is 5'9" the other 6'2". These are quick drying which is perfect for their outside summer activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort, durability, and function above all else I own 3 pair of these shorts and 3 pairs of similar cargo pants. In spite of a large selection of other shorts/pants I have in my closet, the comfort afforded me from these products will be my summer wardrobe(I actually wear them all year). We hike, kayak, play with our grandchildren and are generally pretty active. We also enjoy downtime on our porch with a glass of wine. Having all purpose clothing that can be "ruffed" up while looking good. Is unusual. Thank you Columbia.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from As expected! Just a week or so ago I received my order - prompt and as ordered. The shorts were just what I wanted and what I expected. Good quality. Nice color - the grey ash. They do seem to run a little on the larger side. (Or have I lost a few pounds? Maybe I need to hit the scale!) Have a previous pair in different color. The older pair has held up very well and so I expect these new ones will do likewise. Would I recommend these shorts? Absolutely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These run small Quality and price are great. I bought a size 36 for my brother but they looked really small so had to send them back. You should probably buy a size up. The adjustable belt will allow you to make them a bit smaller if you need. Look and feel was nice for the short time I had them in my hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Short! The Men's Silver Ridge Cargo Shorts have been a staple in my closet for the past few years. They're lightweight, dry quickly, offer enough room for a comfortable fit and are my go to short for summer days on the water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts I have a hard time finding comfortable shorts that aren't athletic/mesh. These are great, with roominess for bigger legs and just the right elasticity in the waste to accommodate an actual waste size that is +/- 1.5 inches of what is listed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and comfortable shorts I bought these as a back-up pair of shorts for a 5-day trek, but wore them every day on my trip since they functioned so well. They are comfortable and provide useful storage for small items with many conveniently located pockets. They are styled well enough to wear at home and around town, as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Shorts for Summer! I used to buy cotton cargo and various cotton shorts all the time. I found that when the weather really heated up, so did I. Not to mention the sweatiness. In come these shorts... Perfect all around. Soft, great material, cool and light weight, super comfortable. I don't get a chance to build up sweat in these. I really love them. Great colors and style looks awesome too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silver Ridge Cargo Short The Silver Ridge Cargo shorts are the best shorts that I have had the pleasure of wearing. I do long distance tramping and couldn't do without them when out in the wilderness. They have a very light feel and remain cool during steep/hard climbing and remain dry due to the lighter material. They are very hard wearing, easy to wash, and are very quick drying. I can't say enough for my Silver Ridge shorts. Michael Jones - New Zealand

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Legit but cost too much I have 5 pairs of use from years past so i bought 2 more this year because they are great. I would buy more but the price is too high at 45+ tax. So everyone should wait for them to go on sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love the versitility I purchased these for my husband because we are going on vacation. I wanted something he could get wet and keep on if we ended up on the town. I bought him three different shorts (the other shorts were not this brand) and these are the ones he wanted to keep and he wants another pair. He loves the fit, they are light weight, look good out, and at the beach, and on a fishing boat. The elastic on the sides give him great comfort, and you can't even see the elastic. The only thing I neglected to tell him was the price. He would never spend over $20 on a pair of shorts. I think it was worth it because he will get a lot of wear out of them for years to come. They have a classic look. (His are the 12 inch length.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hubby's favourite shorts My husband just loves these shorts. The fabric is light-weight and washes well--hang to dry and no ironing touch up necessary. He loves to wear them when we cruise because they roll up and take little space in our suitcase and if we get caught in a tropical rain shower they dry very quickly. He likes them so much he has a pair in almost every colour! Great product that can be worn for very casual (beach hiking) or dressier occasions (summer bbq dinners at friends'). Highly recommend them! Perfect fit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shorts ever made Five years ago I bought my first pairs of Columbia cargo shorts. Two pair, wore every other day for 5 years. Unbelievably durable and extremely comfortable. I'll never wear cotton shorts again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding product Very pleased with these shorts. The material is light but tough, size is excellent. Well designed and well constructed. Amazingly cool even in the hottest weather. Zippers appear to be built to last. Generous pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair of light shorts These shorts are light weight yet rugged. I frequently have trouble finding shorts that fit my 6'3" 240lbs frame, but these do the trick well. They're not too short and offer great flexibility in the crotch and legs. I've owned a pair for over a year and just bought another.
Date published: 2016-06-19
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as my last pair The belt buckle is almost half the size of my last pair and the construction is thinner and cheaper. Worst of all, the buckle is hard to use. The old one was much better. I swapped the new one out for the old one luckily. The stitching on the new pair (made in Bangladesh) is clearly not as robust as my previous pair (made in Vietnam). There's considerably less stitching and the thread is thinner. Frankly, I can't see where Columbia has made this new pair better, it's just made more cheaply. I expected better quality, not less.
