Women's Sandy River™ Cargo Short - Plus Size 4.4 5 23 23
Perfect Selection Tried these, loved them, and over time I have ordered every color. I like the other Sandy River elastic waist without the belt too for other purposes and hope you will offer them again in the extended size as well. Both styles are made so well, please don't compromise on the quality. I like the leg length but would be ok with a longer one as others have said. Hoping to see them back in your selections soon. They are also wonderful for travel, lightweight for packing and non wrinkle. Thank you! November 8, 2014
new to this brand I am an elderly, large woman and I think I am going to love these. February 13, 2014
Wide legs For the most part I like these shorts. The legs are a little bit too wide, other than that they are nice, light weight and dry fast. February 1, 2014
try them on I ordered the same size I have in other Columbia capri pants and the shorts fit much differently--tighter all over. September 18, 2013
Just what I expected I bought these to wear over padded biking liners. They worked great. Nice and light weight but sturdy. I would like them to be an inch or two longer. September 17, 2013
Great shorts I do a lot of sailing and have 6 pairs. Wish I could get shirts and bras made in this fabric. I was in the BVI for 11 days. I used them as swimsuit bottoms. They wash easily and dry quickly. September 1, 2013
Colorado River Shorts I purchased these at the lst minute as I was packing for my whitewater 7 day raft trip. They were perfect. Quick dry, tough and looked reasonably good on my plus size hips. They were roomy and comfortable so they worked well day after day without showing dirt. I highly recommend for active outdoor wear for a plus size woman. They could be another inch or two in length.

Great fit & material I bought two pair (tan & ink) for a trip to Costa Rica. They seem to be very light weight, and I know that they will dry quickly in case of sudden rains there. As others have said, the belt is fairly flimsy, so I took it off. The fit is perfect for me. I am 5'8" and overweight in the thigh area, but they have ample leg room and fit well with the elastic in the waist. As others have said, I would like to see these maybe a bit longer for sitting down, but for hiking they seem to be fine. July 12, 2013
pockets! Cargo pants without hip pockets - Seriously?? None of the pockets in these shorts are large enough for a wallet. I don't buy cargo shorts as a fashion statement, I want them for pockets. As a plus size woman my choices in shorts are very limited, but these are just not functional. I am returning them. July 4, 2013
Terrific shorts for walking!! These cargos are great for walking, even in the heat and humidity of south Alabama! They don't ride up as you walk and the fabric breathes great so you stay cool! Love them! June 14, 2013
Great product I love the shorts. They are light and comfortable. I wish they were a couple of inches longer though. June 5, 2013
Good buy Picked these up for summer hiking. Ran slightly small but not surprised for plus size clothes. Good length and light weight. May 24, 2013
Personal Preference These were just what I was looking for, but just a tad too short for my liking. There is nothing wrong with the product....just I like my shorts longer. May 15, 2013
Great shorts! Love these shorts. Comfortable everyday wear. May 13, 2013
Great Shorts Excellent shorts! Fabric and fit are very good. Very comfortable. I ordered more. They are roomy enough for sports. Cool enough for hot Florida summers. Good for bike riding, gardening, hiking, tennis and relaxing. May 7, 2013
Nice lightweight shorts that are very breathable Purchased these shorts for summer and was surprised of how well they fit the run a little big which is nice. I just wish they had these in more colors. I will be buying more of these and I am also looking to try the pants as well. March 24, 2013
Overall good product The material is thinner than what they used to be and so they tend to wrinkle a little more than what I would like. March 23, 2013
Bucket List-Fishing shorts This is my first pair of Columbia Sandy River™ Cargo shorts. Love the feel and fit...very comfortable. This black pair will be my fishing shorts for Hatteras Island this summer. At age 60 I have started the 3rd ACT and working on my Bucket List. Enjoyed shopping online. Glad you carry the extended sizes. Also thanks for the coupon, just used it to purchase a pair of Arch Cape™ III Knee Pant. March 22, 2013
Nice but too large While the misses size XL are too small, these were much too large in the Womans' size. March 11, 2013
shorts Shorts are great. Easy to pack for trip and can wash and wear so much less to pack. This is my 5th pair..I found I was wearing my black ones so much bought 2nd pair.. January 31, 2013
Nice Shorts Would prefer that there was velcro on the pockets however, unlike previous owners of this style, I didn't buy a pair that included the when it was available. I figure I can just sew my own velcro on at this point though it would be nice if they added it back in order to keep things "locked in". Wore them on a hiking trip over the weekend in Rocky Mountain National Park. They were very comfortable. September 23, 2012
Great shorts I ordered these shorts before a weekend of sailing in the hot Texas sun. They fit great, dried quickly and were most comfortable. I'll be ordering another pair. July 3, 2012
Best again I have been wearing Columbia active wear shorts for 15 years. I am STILL using 2 pairs I bought in 1997.They are faded but still wonderful. I have 3 others that are at least 7 yrs. old & still tip top. I hope my new ones wear as well. THANK YOU for carrying 1X etc. Just becasue I am not thin doesn't mean I do nothing. I will be buying again soon. The only reason there was a time gap is that no one carries your plus size shorts in the Trinity, Fl. area. I was told you no longer made the plus size. Finally, I turned to the internet & voila- there they were!!! I am so thrilled. Thanks again! E L June 14, 2012
