Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Odd fitting shorts I really wanted these shorts to work and tried them in different sizes and styles (cargo option). All returned. On all sizes I found them to be either tight at the waist with excessive amount of fabric in the leg. Or ok at the waist but so much fabric. The shorts remind me of culottes, cinched at the waist but flowing through the leg. I find it to be an unflattering look. Did love the color options though. Would prefer a short option that is more tailored and less baggy. June 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these shorts! Bought these shorts to wear while kayaking. Light weight, dries quickly, true to size, vibrant color. Love these! Would definitely recommend & will be buying more in other colors! June 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by love these shorts I was looking for comfortable active shorts and these are great. I'll be purchasing them in other colors. May 31, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good, but long... Great shorts functionally... not uncomfortable when sitting, but they're longer than I expected and sit high on the waist. Not the most youthful or feminine shorts I've owned, but good for my casual workplace or running around in the summer. May 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Swimming shorts I plan to wear these in swimming pool in Arizona instead of typical female bare-all-leg suits. November 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these shorts I ordered these shorts one week before vacation! I was so happy that they were fit to size and very comfortable!! The only two pair of shorts that I wore on vacation. Love the zipper pocket!!! thanks!! March 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love Sandy River Short I bought 3 pair of these light weight easily packable shorts. Love them!! Comfortable and great for out door activity. March 11, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Big These were very large. I have to roll them over twice at the waist. June 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfortable. Nice, light weight fabric. Among the nicest shorts I've ever owned. May 13, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good shorts I like these shorts but I also ordered the cargo shorts and like them better. But these are comfortable and cool in the heat of the Florida summer. I would prefer if they were a little shorter but overall good shorts. May 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Columbia shorts The shorts fit great with plenty of leg room without pulling when you sit down. April 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love These Shorts! I am a summer camp counselor, in AL. We are outside in the heat a lot and these shorts are great! They are cool and comfortable, and long enough to fit the dress code ( and they don't ride up)! I currently own two pairs and plan on purchasing more before camp starts up again! April 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect lightweight shorts Lightweight, dries quickly, so great for travel and water sports. I've bought several in different colors, and this year's model has a pretty print on the inside of the waistband, for those who like to roll down the waistband (not me). My older pairs have held up quite well to extended use and repeated washings. November 25, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Workmanship---- fabric has changed I love Columbia shorts however, these are not the same quality as shorts I have received in the past. Fabric is sooo much thinner!! Had to order this size to get a 6 inch inseam length, because I could not get this length in any other short. They are too big. Needed sports shorts. October 3, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Plus size Sandy River Shorts Love these shorts. Light and cool. Use them to hike in and everyday wear. Perfect for Hawaii and AZ trips. Liked them so much I picked up two more pair. Would recommend them for plus size ladies. Very comfortable and will not ride up when walking. September 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shorts I bought these shorts to wear on vacation, where we would be in or on the water every day. While on vacation, we had a lot of rain, so these shorts were perfect because they dry so quickly. They are extremely comfortable and the size was spot on, which is usually a problem with me. I will buy more of these shorts and certainly recommend them to friends and family. August 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Decent shorts These are good shorts for the price. Sizes run small however. October 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable and airy I bought these shorts for river rafting on the Rio Grande. They fit beautifully, are comfortable, and were dry before I got back into the car to go home. July 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my new shorts This is the 2nd pair of Sandy River shorts I have purchased. When I received them I immediately ordered the second pair. The fit is so comfortable and they are so light weight. I love the elastic waist band. June 14, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pockets a little different I love my shorts. they are extremely comfortable and cool. I wish they had a 4x the pockets are a different style than the Sandy River Short I had before and stick out some but that is because the short is a bit tight for me. But I wear them anyway because I love Columbia and its products. May 15, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandy River Short I currently own 3 pairs of this short in different colors and from different years of sale. This latest one is a bit thin on the material, but still sufficient. I am quite happy with it in size 1x as it fits around my size 20 waist without making my size 18 hips and legs look like they are swimming in a dumpy pair of shorts. I like the new design with the print around the inner waist band. The color blue you offer is the only reason I was hooked into buying it as I already owned 2 pair in black and brown. It is very pretty. March 26, 2011
