Women's PFG Solar Fade™ Short is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Returning The material for these wasn't quite what I was expecting (it was more of a linen-type material) and even though I'm a straight size 4 in pretty much everything, there was almost an inch between the button and closure. Too bad; they're a really fun color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fit, flattering style I bought these last year in collegiate navy oxford and couldn't wait until they came around again. It was hard to choose another color, but I knew their fit would flatter my tush! I don't fish or do any sports, but I like to look put-together in the California sun and these do the trick.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Should've gone up a size I ordered these without trying them on first, which was my first mistake. Columbia's clothes have a habit of being inconsistently sized between styles. I normally wear a 4 in their shorts and have thick thighs. These didn't even fit my waist. They are extremely soft though, and had I gotten the right size, I feel that they would be very comfortable. Overall, I can't give a good review about function, but definitely go up a size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hiking shorts Usually comfortably wear a size 6 and had to order a size 8 because the waist and thighs were very tight.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice shorts but run small These are great shorts, just make sure you get a size or 2 bigger than usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite shorts These are my summer go-to shorts! Last year I got the light/bright yellow color and wore them constantly; this year I was lucky enough to get the navy right before they ran out. I often get compliments on them, and for me they are just the right length and flattering to the booty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts! These are easily my favorite shorts. They fit well and are a good length. I am 5 foot and they are modest while still looking trendy! The fabric is lightweight and quality. It doesn't matter that they are PFG, I still wear them with dressy shirts. The only problem is that because the fabric is thin, they seem to wrinkle easily on the tops of my thighs when I sit. Regardless, I still give them 5 stars.
