Women's Back Beauty™ Long Sport Short 4.6 5 20 20
Most comfortable shorts ever! I have never before written a review, but I have to on this product because I love it that much! I bought my first pair in a sporting goods store and my second, a week later, online. I read in other reviews they run small, so I was nervous about buying my regular size (small...5'2", 118 lbs.), but the medium was baggy and I am very happy with the fit of the smalls. These shorts are so comfortable I want to wear them every day! Plus, they hide my muffin-top and middle-aged thighs. I would buy more if they came in different colors. August 29, 2015
Runs small I think I would have loved these but I purchased a size M which should have corresponded to a size 10 which is my usual size, but they were way to small. I would have tried a L but they were sold out. July 30, 2015
New favorite shorts These fit and move fantastic! They are very comfortable, will likely need another pair. May 20, 2015
The driest shorts ever!! Love them in humid NEPA These shorts are comfy and dry all day in humid north east PA. they totally shocked me. Thought they would be hot and a sweat master total opposite. My bra was soaked could be wrung out yesterday after cleaning up yard and cutting grass, but my underwear were dry it was almost impossible to believe. I'll be stocking up on these. Quick to wash out be hand and hang to dry super quick. WOW thank u Columbia!!! May 18, 2015
ORDER A SIZE UP! I couldn't even get them up, they are very "fitted" so order at least a size up! April 29, 2015
Great Quality great quality, wash well and repell stains April 26, 2015
needs 1 change These shorts need 1 change. I agree with some of the reviews I read on Amazon. The rise is too short. This makes for a slightly "off" fit, and unflattering look. Please adjust the rise on these shorts. If you make that adjustment I'll buy a couple of more pairs. With the current design, I'll have to pass on buying another pair even though I like the other features of the shorts. April 23, 2015
No zippers, and no buttons I bought 2 pair of these shorts, I am a true size 12 and I bought a large, the length is perfect and the waist fits perfect, I like the idea there are no zippers or snaps, I have hiked and also done my spin class wearing these, can't wait to continue doing my activities in them. They are perfect. I love them ! So happy !! Also the little hidden/side pocket is great for money, key or I.d. March 21, 2015
My favorite work out shorts ever! These shorts are my favorite pair of workout shorts. I have 2 pair. I love them because they are not ridiculously short like most of the shorts the younger girls wear, but are not "old lady" shorts either. They are also comfortable and the fabric allows for stretching with no binding anywhere. February 10, 2015
Great Short This short fits nicely, very flattering, wears like iron, and is superbly comfortable. A nice length. April 4, 2014
Love these Shorts So comfortable! Wore in Hawaii, great in heat. Will be my favorite shorts February 20, 2014
Great Short These shorts are very comfortable and fit well. If you are on the slim side, they definitely do fit a bit loose around the things/knees so have more of a masculine fit. I was thinking that they would fit more like a very short capri (slim) but that was not the case. Not a problem though as I still use them for running and hiking in the summer, just a different look. Love the fit of the waistband and the good back coverage. October 15, 2013
Comfort & function plus These hardworking shorts could not be more comfortable, attractive & easy-wearing. Perfect zip pocket on seam for key items. Cool in our hot humid climate as well! June 29, 2013
Great product I'm a very active mid 50's woman and these shorts are perfect for everyday use- gym, tennis, biking, etc... I particularly like the small pocket that is perfect for the Iphone. June 19, 2013
Great and Comfortable Fit I purchased my first pair about 8 months ago. I love the fit and how comfortable they are to wear. I do not like tight fitting clothes but I want something that fits, especially when I am being active. These are fitting and fit all areas around the waist. No gaps!!! Great for playing ball where you are moving around alot. I would recommend these shorts for any active activity. June 7, 2013
Love these shorts have three pair Bought them for vacation but have already worn them for exercise and golf but plan to wear them for almost anything. Very comfortable. I got the XL and sizing said I should wear the L, but I do not like things that hug. I am tall and love the length. May 16, 2013
Work out shorts I have had a really hard time finding this type of short in any stores, so I was happy to find you carried it. The sizing recommendation said it ran small, and it does, so I appreciated that notation before I ordered. May 10, 2013
Great looking short, but GRAVEL is a GREEN Color! I like these shorts and they are a great fit. HOWEVER, I thought they were gray when I ordered them online. Columbia has the color listed as GRAVEL. Well, these shorts are actually a green color. I would describe as 'Army Green'. Most of my coordinating hiking and workout clothing is gray or black. These do not go with any shirts/ jackets I have, so I returned them. If if wasn't for the green color, I would have kept them. March 9, 2013
Great shorts for curvy women Love these shorts! I am very pear shaped so it's hard to find bottoms that aren't too tight in the legs and yet don't gap in the waist especially when sitting. These shorts fit the bill and will be great for all my casual activities this Spring and Summer. March 6, 2013
These shorts are versatile The back beauty shorts would be appropriate as work out shorts or for shopping -- very versatile. They are super comfortable - especially in the waist. I ordered the gravel color expecting a grayish/tanish color. Much to my surprize, gravel as a color means green! Think army dress uniform green. Very nice...just not what I expected.
