Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product - 2nd time purchasing The guys that I bought these for really like the shorts and requested that I buy more of the same. They love the comfort and breath-ability, and comfort is A-ONE. I will definitely be buying these again next season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love these shorts Did I mention, love these shorts. The are cool and extremely comfortable in warm weather. The fabric is flexible and provides easy movement including hiking, climbing, etc. The colors are great. The elastic in the waistband provide flexibility for tucking in a shirt or not. These could be used for a casual look or for a more dress up look. Great shorts - have 3 pair

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Return Policy! Columbia will not allow you to make a simple exchange for a different size. Columbia runs 2 sizes small for shorts/pants from everything else I wear. Columbia charges you for the return shipping and won't allow you to make an exchange. Returns only.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wet Wading Shorts I purchased these shorts to fly fish in, and am very pleased with them! They are very light weight, and dry very quickly when they get wet. They are good looking and I have worn them for other occasions than fishing - great value! They are also long enough for me - I'm 6'5", and 248 lbs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit too baggy for my taste I bought two pairs to use for work in a woodshop being that they are ripstop nylon. I wore one pair during some 90+ weather in New Jersey. They performed well. They stood up to some abuse and haven't ripped yet. They are exceptoionally light and didn't make me heat up during the day. While I am 6'2" with a 34 waist and an athletic build, I found these to be rather baggy for my taste and the 10" length seems to hang a bit below they knee. They waist fits nicely with the aid of the elastic sides. They belt functions well with very little play in the latch though it does seem to slip out of the loops rather easily when unbuttoning the pants for nature calls, though that is a minor issue. All in all a good pair of shorts but if your into a slighlty slimmer fit, and I don't mean hipster slim, than these are not for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fishing shorts Great lightweight shorts. I like the length of the shorts (actually extend to the knee) and how quickly they dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Men's Silver Ridge™ Cargo Short Columbia's Men's Silver Ridge Cargo Short are my favorite Cargo Shorts. The pockets are functional for my needs. I like these cargo shorts so well, I must confess I have 4 pair plus 2 pair of Men's Silver Ridge pants.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pair of summer shorts. I have been a fan of Columbia products for years. I still have an earlier generation of these shorts from about 4-5 years ago and decided to upgrade to the new ones. They are still made out of a similar material, construction is good not great, but they are very comfortable and offer a cooling effect when outside in blazing temps/ 100% humidity. My only fuss is that they do not have the zippered back pocket like my original ones do, but it is not a big deal to me. If you are looking for a good pair of quality shorts for the summer you can't go wrong with these.

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 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 3 out of 5 by from Good short runs small I got these in same size as Columbia pants I wear. I'd go a size up. Can't even really comfortably wear them so handed them down to my son. Functional yet I wish they didn't bother with the non removable belt. What good is a belt that you can't even wear things on because it is stitched shut behind clasp. Lose the belt. Buy a size up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Didn't get a real chance to test them out. From what I seen and felt they were a good product. I had to sent them back though. Too small. I'm a 36W, but I found them a bit tight.
Date published: 2015-10-30
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Need to return It has been a few years since our last purchase of Columbia shorts. They last forever. We have always bought them at stores in town but we ordered them on line this time and found them to be of lesser quality. The material is thinner and the belt is stiff and just not the same as before. we are returning them and will return to buying them in store where we can feel the fabric to assure its what we've had in the past

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shorts Ever These are without doubt the best shorts I've ever purchased. In addition to the 2 blue I just purchased, I have at least 10 other pair in beige, taupe and green. Other than wishing Columbia would add some additional colors - black, grey, brown, I would absolutely recommend these shorts.
Date published: 2015-10-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lousy pockets I love Columbia clothing and have a lot of it. The only think I don't like about these shorts - and it's a major issue - is that the front pockets (that don't have a flap) are very shallow, so much so that I would never put anything in them for fear it would fall out. Other than that...good shorts.
Date published: 2015-09-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good short with a belt. This is a good short that is nice to have with a belt. Sometimes you need the extra security of a belt and you get that with these.
Date published: 2015-08-29
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shorts are a little small Have worn Columbia Silver Ridge cargo shorts for years. These have been redesigned. The pockets are smaller now where cell phones and/ or wallets don't fit very well. The 36" fit around the waist but now they are tight thru the hip area. The regular Silver Ridge shorts seem to still have the better fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great pair of cargo shorts! These shorts fit true to size, are quality made and feel very comfortable, per my husband. The color matches two Columbia sport shirts that he has, so the look is perfect. The attached belt is a nice feature, as well. The 12" length is really a nice feature, as longer is better. All in all, an excellent buy.
