Women's PFG Coral Point™ II Short is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs Small! I normally wear a size 10 sometimes 12 and ordered the Large - they were WAY too small. Returning & ordering the XL. They seem like nice quality shorts and seem like they'd be comfortable so I'm hoping the next size up will fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shorts, But Not For Big Thighs I mainly use these shorts at athletic events as an athletic training student. As long as I am standing they are perfect! They protect you from the sun and water rolls right off them. But, sitting or squatting down is not easy if you have bigger thighs. There is no stretch in the seams around the legs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Other than running a little bit small according to the size chart, I love the product. It's a great length and the three pocket feature is great. Material is fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Water Sports Win These are a comfortable, well made short for active outdoor wear in and around the water. I ordered mine to wear with swim suits for kayaking, beach walking and fly-fishing. I am a perfect size 6 pant, with a straight build. 5'2" and 120lbs. I used the guide and ordered size small. They were too tight thorough the seat and waist. I returned them and ordered a medium. They fit perfectly. The shorts are well made. Lots of pockets. The crotch has a gusset and waistband elasticized on the sides for ease of movement and range of motion. The are short shorts but they do not ride up when seated. The weight of the fabric is substantial enough (not flimsy and not too stiff) to make the shorts fit neatly and appear tailored. I order the white and navy. I've washed both pairs and they did not shrink or lose shape. I am very happy with this purchase I really wish Columbia would standardize their short sizing though. I wear anything from a small to a size 10 depending on the style I am buying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fabric for on the go Comfortable shorts, great length, easy to go from hiking to kayaking. Quick drying fabric is awesome!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great summer shorts I bought these for work. The inseam says 6" but it sure was short on my legs. I will wear these a lot in the summer but because of the length, I can not wear them to work. I bought up a size because many items at Columbia run small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice shorts but.... Runs very small. Need to order one size larger for a more comfortable fit.
Date published: 2016-12-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall nice shorts! They do run a bit small, and they will shrink if you dry them. I have almost every color in this short, so I do love them as they are quality made, but just beware they do run on the small side so if your size is borderline be sure to order up a size. I normally wear a medium and had to order the large for a less snug fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive fit I bought these shorts for an extended RV trip to the SW. I like the fit so well, I am ordering another pair. The only reason I did not give them 5 stars is I have not worn them yet. So far, so good! I normally wear size 6-8 in most pants and have larger thighs. These hit just below the waist.
Date published: 2016-11-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Came back for a second pair:) The material is soft and easy to care for, the color is terrific (I have the coral color and soft blue), the pockets are functional, and they can be easily dressed up or down. I am 5'0", 115 lbs and curvy/athletic and the small fits the way I want it to for everyday activity.
Date published: 2016-08-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great length Love the length, not too short. Was worried about the sizing but medium worked great. Would buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great outdoors shorts I wore these shorts non-stop except for laundering while working for 3 months as an outdoor guide climbing, hiking, and kayaking with my clients. Yes, I do own other shorts, but these are the best. The dry quickly, don't stain, have great pockets, and flatter my figure. I'm 5'4 and 105 pounds and the XS is a bit big around the waist but I just wear a belt. All the pockets and features of another brand's "Baggies" shorts but Columbia's bang for your buck can't be beat.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2015-08-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Way too small I have very similar Columbia shorts in a 6 that fit fine, these did not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2014-01-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-07-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-06-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
Date published: 2013-06-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-06-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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
Date published: 2013-05-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-01-02
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2012-10-26
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2012-08-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2012-06-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2012-06-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2012-05-06
Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2012-03-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
