Rated 2 out of 5 by great shorts, poor fit In general I don't have much trouble with ordering Columbia clothes without trying them on. With these shorts however, my standard XL didn't fit at all. They are nice shorts and could be worn for multiple purposes, I will have to regift them to someone else. December 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great shorts for summer These shorts were perfect for summertime beach and water activities. I bought these specifically for kayaking and fishing and ended up using them for any casual activities. They are a good, feminine fit, but the length is long enough to move around without feeling uncomfortable. I wear a size 4-6 in pants and ordered the small. They dry quickly and are pretty durable. I definitely recommend. November 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Shorts These shorts are very versatile. I've worn them on the trail, on the boat, and to the grocery store:) The 6 inch length is perfect for extra coverage without restricting movement. They are quick drying and hold there shape well. There isn't a lot of stretch but that doesn't bother me. I am 5'10" and 130 lbs and ordered the small. They fit perfect and thus are true to size. October 9, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Women's PFG Coral II Short Columbia changed the styling and fit on these shorts in the past 2 years and it wasn't a betterment in my opinion. The shorts are baggier in the leg now, the material has a crumpled texture instead of a smooth finish and the contrasting stitching embellishments are gone. They are still great shorts but they look and act cheaper. August 29, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Way too small I have very similar Columbia shorts in a 6 that fit fine, these did not. July 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Keeps a golfer dry I wore these on the golf course in 90-degree weather with very high humidity today. It's very difficult to stay cool and dry in this region, but these shorts did the trick. They run large. I needed a smaller size overall. They were fine when I tried them on, but they stretched just enough throughout the day to be too big for comfort. These are perfect ladies' golf shorts. I will size down when I buy them in every other color available. June 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fashionable, light weight and comfortable. Fashionable, light weight and comfortable for the heat in Phoenix AZ. Size 6 with a 28/38 waist/hips and the Medium is loose and small snug. Chose medium for comfort may need to take in waist. May 17, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great shorts!! The shorts run a little tight so order a size up from usual. I love the material and the length. They are not too short and not too long. April 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shorts These shorts are comfortable and well made. I plan to purchase a couple more! April 8, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by good short for water and general recreation Nice short. It runs big. the XS is like a medium, wear with a belt and no problems. Good fit otherwise and well made. March 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by useful, good quality shorts i wear them for outdoor activities on warm days. they are super cute too, love these shorts. May 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a super pair of shorts Very flattering, fit perfect, perfect length, love them. March 18, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by White is SEE THROUGH! I really liked the cut and style of these shorts. I normally wear a 10 and I ordered these in a L and they fit more like a 12/14. Since they didn't have any stretch I thought I might order up a size, which was a mistake. They are super see through and I had planned on wearing them kayaking. Although I loved the light weight quick dry material and the flattering cut, there's no way I'd go out in public in them. They're thin/see-thru when they're dry. When they get wet, I'm sure they'll be transparent. Bummed these don't come in a darker color/pattern, bc I would buy them again if they weren't white. January 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the shorts However a little disappointed that I ordered 6 pair and one came marked as the size I ordered but was clearly smaller. Unfortunately I did not catch the incorrectly labeled pair until after they had been washed. Otherwise super comfortable and washes well. July 16, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice shorts, but I wish I could get an older style... These shorts are fine, well made. They seem just a tad snug, where my usual size L would be loose. I wish the pockets were larger and the style like my old Columbia's - more larger pockets. I guess this is the new sleeker style these days. June 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The only Shorts I'll ever need! I have 4 pairs of these shorts - I wish they came in more colors!! I get so many compliments when I wear them. These are the best! June 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect shorts! I love these shorts! They're just the right length, shaped well... very flattering to my 56-year-old petite self. They're sporty looking and of course dry quickly. I'm going to get another color. These are my new go-to shorts. June 10, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great quality & stylish short I really like these shorts they look great and aren't too short. The material is simply the best, just like the original Coral Point Short which are still my all time very favorite but are no longer available. Unlike the original these dont have the cargo pocket and are about an inch shorter. I use these shorts just about everyday and have one in each color. They are very quick drying and comfortable and pockets don't bulge out but rather lay flat. very flattering fit. *They do run small so definately size up May 1, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great shorts These are great shorts, dry quickly, very comfortable. If you have heavier thighs I would not recommend these as the leg openings are on the smaller side. They also run a bit small compared to other Columbia products I own. I fit comfortably into a size 8 and the Medium (8-10) just barely fit. January 2, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by BIG waist Waist was too large and a belt not only looked funny, but slid up to the top of the shorts. The white fabric showed my underwear underneath. October 25, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed I was really excited about these shorts, so much so that I ordered 2 pairs. I was planning to wear them to go boating/fishing knowing the material would dry quickly. I ordered a small, I am normally a size 4. The waist was big, and the fit through the hips was very small/tight. I could not believe it. SO disappointed, I returned both pairs. I tried on a medium at Bass Pro, and they were way to big in the waist. August 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Product These shorts are wonderful. I am pear shape so I have bigger thighs and I often have chaffing. With these shorts I did not have any! I am usually in between a size 10 and 12 so I choose size 12-14 because I like my clothing a little loose. They are a little big around the waste, but they stay up and they are still wonderful. They do have loops for a belt. Overall these shorts are wonderful and I will absolutely get another pair! July 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these shorts!! They are light weight, durable, dry quickly, comfortable, and extremely functionable. I bought several pair to wear for my lawn and pool service. They do not bleach out in intense sun exposure nor do they bleach out when exposed to chlorine. We just went through Tropical Storm Debby with heavy rains and flooding. Other than my feet being wet, my shorts dried up quickly...nice! For me and my size, they are just a bit big new, but will shrink slightly in the dryer. I will always buy Columbia shorts. Love them!! June 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent- love these shorts Comfortable, very flattering- will buy more June 21, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Product not as long as needed Did not like the two snaps at the top of the zipper, the waist to crotch length was off, and the shorts were shorter than advertised. June 7, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product was good, but Coral Point I was better I liked the length in the Coral Point shorts better. It was 8 inches. I also liked the buttons on the waist better. You could adjust the waist by about 2to 3inches with the two buttons each side. I was aware that these shorts going to be different. I am satisfied with them and the fit,but I wish you would bring the coral point shorts back. June 4, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by comfortable Comfortable and true to size. There isn't much stretch to these shorts due to the material it is so make sure they are loose enough for movement. They dry fast and are light weight. I am happy with my purchase. May 6, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by The cut is very small. I have purchased these shorts in the past and have loved them. This "new" style is cut too small and had to return them. I was very disappointed. March 8, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect in every way! Love, love, love these shorts. I have been looking for this blend of material in a white short forever. I wanted this for beach and boating so they could be wash and wear quickly. I ordered a 6 and am 5'2" , 115 they fit nicely. I just wish the waist band came up a little higher to cover my slight muffin top better. At my age (over 60 ) I needed a short that wasn't TOO short. These are just right and will be cruising with me in April! I will probably order the black also. February 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these shorts I live in Austin and wear shorts most of the year. I couldn't wait for Columbia to offer these babies this year - and I LOVE them. They're classcs, you'll be loving them 5 years from now. February 17, 2012
