Just wish they would come out with more colors! Awesome simple and super comfortable shorts. I recommend going one size larger for a looser fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bthomas27 This product really rocks!
Are very light but don't feel cheap or flimsy at all. I wore these to hike the grand canyon and they were really a blessing. After being completely submerged in water they dried very quickly. The zipper pocket was very handy to pack out small trash. Pockets are nice and deep. I'm 6'2" and wear a 34 in other Columbia pants. I got 34 waist and 10 inseam and they fit like a glove. They never got caught on shrubbery and never had a rubbing issue. I will for sure be buying a few more pairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BIIC Silver Ridge Stretch Short
I love these for the light weight, stretch, and pretty much wrinkle free fabric right of the wash. They are my absolute favorite shorts.

I wanted some lightweight all purpose shorts and these fit the bill nicely. These shorts are well designed and are great for everyday wear, a quick hike, or a round of golf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bob78704 Great shorts, but I liked the older version more
I love that these shorts are soft, stretchy, & dry quickly. The leg zipper allows valuables to be secured without falling out while hiking or climbing.
The omni-shield is awesome for stain protection, & is what keeps me coming back anytime I need a new pair of shorts. I have spilled coffee on myself, scraped mud while climbing, & more, yet these shorts do not show any stains. Perfect for outdoors, or travel, where you might need to wash your clothes in a stream or sink without strong detergents.
I did like the older version more, though, because the leg zipper pocket was hidden. That allowed these shorts to look like normal khaki shorts, instead of a cargo short. If they bring back the hidden zipper pocket I would get multiple pairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Duke71 Excellent warm weather shorts
These shorts are fantastic for warmer weather, they fit a little loose and are very non-binding. Super comfortable, pockets have been "deepened" from original silver ridge stretch short, no items fall out of pockets now. I would highly recommend these for outdoor activities or just relaxing. Great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by txcaley Terrific, Functional and Fashionable, if a bit snug
These shorts are very light weight and functional and have a nice cut to them. Definitely appropriate for the trail or the pub. Really love the little bit of stretch that they have to them. As is noted on some of the other reviews, they are a bit snug. 34 in most shorts fits me perfectly but these were a bit too snug. They stretch a LITTLE bit at the waste but I definitely feel like I need to lose a couple pounds in order for them to fit me they way I want them too. 36 by contrast are much too big, and slip down without a belt. 35 would be perfect but they aren't available in odd sizes. Would really love to see these in a 6 or 7 inch length as well. I am 5'8 and the 8 inch version come to just above my kneecap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DanielL GREAT Shorts!
These have quickly become my favorite pair of shorts. They are very lightweight, breathable, and seem to be durable enough for hiking/fishing, etc. I received them just before a beach vacation and wound up wearing them every day.

I am 5"9 190 lbs and the 10 in inseam hits just barely below the knee (my preference) and fit perfect. Great material and comfort.
