Men's Silver Ridge™ Cargo Short is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 183.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from comfortable I bought these shorts for golf. I wanted them to be comfortable and cool for the summer. They fit the bill on both. I wear a 33 waist and the 34 inch waist fit well, I like the look and feel of these shorts I would recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts for the big and tall. As a man that is 6'5" tall, it is very hard to find shorts that come to your knees. The fit and quality are great and the material keeps you cool in the warmer weather. I will definitely add a few more pairs to my collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Camper I have been wearing these shorts for the past 2-3 years. They shed moisture, dirt and are very durable. Throw them in the wash, they dry very fast, look great and are very comfortable. I have 8 pairs and wear them constantly. Highly recommend these shorts, great for all outdoor activities . Also very casual, look great with a polo shirt or just a tee shirt. Excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cargo shorts! My husband loves this design. He finds them very comfortable and he loves the extra pockets (especially when out with a camera). The fit and sillouette is rather tailored and slimming even with the extra pockets since the pockets are mostly flat (not big floppy things). The gusset detail, an insert panel from the hems to the crotch, provides greater ease of movement when active. Love the durable, light weight and quick drying fabric which is very comfort for traveling in the tropics.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Green ones run small I have these in light grey and loved them so I ordered them again in green. The green fit snug. Still good shorts and functional but the light grey pair is way better and gets much more use based only on the fact they fit true to my size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts I bought them for my super picky husband and he loves them. The material is almost like swimsuit material which means they are great for hot weather, but they also look really good with a nice polo. The material is good quality. They are definitely worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MEN'S SILVER RIDGE™ CARGO SHORT I have bought around 7 pairs of these shorts. I am a PE teacher in Southern California and live in Shots. These shorts are awesome for everyday use. The fit is outstanding and the cargo pockets are useful for my job. Outstanding shorts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I keep coming for more! I use these cargo shorts almost all year round, they last longer and are far lighter than any other brand I used in the far away past, these proved to be the best.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Shorts! I buy about 3 of these a year. They're very breathable, resistant to liquids, and light. The downsides; The material used for the pockets rips now and then over time. They downgraded the belts from tough nylon to stretchy elastic. :( Otherwise, a very decent shorts :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Rough Tough Cream Puff The Silver Ridge shorts that I purchased have performed beyond expectation. Made of rip-stop nylon with mesh pockets of like polyester material, they are fantastic, whether biking, trekking, rafting or any other activity. Their ability to wick moisture and assist in protection from UV rays as well as hold up to heavy wear stands them in good stead. They are "light as a feather" and are able to wash out quickly in cold water with liquid soap, making them a valued companion on extended trips. We fly abroad a lot and airlines limit us to 50 lbs. or less. These shorts are appreciated as they are light, do not wrinkle and hold their shape. Oh, by the way, the waist stretches should you eat a little too much. The cargo pockets are large, deep and hold a lot making a need for a day fanny-pack unnecessary. I like these shorts so much that I am ordering three additional pair in various colors. Colombia Sportswear and Silver Ridge shorts get my vote.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice, but trash the belt These shorts are very comfortable and seem to be very durable. My only suggestion is to remove the belt and throw it away as soon as you receive these. It's flimsy and useless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cargo Short The cargo short is an excellent choice for warm weather hiking - excellent fit and true sizing. I love the long inseam length option of 12 inches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Travel Companion I travel a great deal and these shorts are great fro travel. The easily pack...and I wear them a lot and U can hand wash to go again. Any type of stain or dirt comes out. I would recommend to every one to but these shorts. Anthony

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silver Ridge Cargo Short I bought a second pair of these for my husband....he is shopping averse, and does not pay much attention to style.....so I have to be the style police!! These met his criteria for comfort - some elastic in the waist, very comfortable lightweight fabric. Met my criteria for fashion - great fit, wash up very well and hang wrinkle free. Very versatile - they look great with casual dress shirts for a casual upscale night out, and function very well for hiking and every day use. I love the way he looks, and he loves the way he feels in these! I will be buying more

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For those of us who enjoy comfortable wear The material they are made of, the impermeability, the cool and relaxed feel you have, is simply the perfect outdoor outfit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cargo shorts I liked the first ones so much I ordered a second pair in Tusk. I love the extra stretch in the waist and the zipper pockets. They launder well and can be worn for casual as well as outdoor activities. I think they are a little expensive so I have to wait and catch them on sale.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They are good but awesome. I say they are good but awesome cause the back velcro pockets don't velcro together when you have a wallet or something in them. Don't really protect you from it falling out of someone pocket picking you. But they are awesome cause they are lightweight with the side pockets are great to have one that zips for extra production and use ability. The other is just as good! Use them all the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Skip the cheesy belt..... Skip the belt and make the waist band a little sturdier, it tends to "roll" and become uncomfortable. Other than that I really like the shorts, light, comfortable and dry quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the shorts! My husband was very happy with these. Length is perfect as he likes them cut long. The fit is amazing. But the best thing about them is the lightness. I don't think he's ever had shorts that didn't make him feel like he was weighted down, he was overjoyed. We are going on a trip to Italy and these will travel very, very well!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quality not what I expected The first time my son wore these shorts the zip pocket ripped off of the shorts. The pocket is sewn on with a single stitch which is pretty sad. These are supposed to be cargo shorts but a pocket sewn on like that will not last in a rugged environment. I really expected better quality. Sorry Columbia but I won't be buying from you again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You'll love the Silver Ridge cargo short My husband works in a hot warehouse in Hawaii. These are not the only shorts that keep him cool but he also loves the fit and softness of the material. He also uses them for Golf. We cannot find any other short out there for him to wear. He's been wearing these for 10 yrs. You will not be disappointed in getting these. Also the colors are true to the pictures also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my shorts! These are very comfortable and work well on the beach as well as on mountain hikes. My phone and wallet are secure in the pockets, while being easily opened when needed. They dry quickly when wet, and these shorts are light weight and very adaptable in various weather situations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for Wanted some ultra-lightweight shorts for day hiking during our scorching summer months. These fit that requirement perfectly. The breath extremely well and dry quickly when wet. As for fit, I'm 6'4" 225lbs and found the 38 tall fits me exactly, hitting just at the knee and not too slim or too baggy. There is a very cheap 'belt' included, but don't expect that to last long. I liked the first pair so much I bought a second and use both regulary

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pair of Cargo Shorts The shorts fit well and are very comfortable. The "built-in" belt is nice with a good buckle. The shorts are drying quickly (unexpected storm on a Sunday) and have some stretch. The button feels solid and the zipper is good. The only improvement I can see is the cargo pockets, that do not expand. Overall these cargo shorts are a great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 pairs I'm 65 and wear shorts daily and want cargo shorts because hate a wallet in my back pockets. I had 2 pair from the older versions and loved them better than the cotton cargo shorts I own. Living in Texas, I want something lighter and a less weight with the humidity we have here so bought 3 more pair when they went on sale. I like the newer version of the silver ridges nearly as well as the older versions. I like the zipper pockets and wish they were on the right pocket also. Very handy when traveling.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Day On The Boat These are strictly made to get wet. Fish net pockets eat keys, otherwise, they appear to be made to shed water. Built in snap buckle belt will hold up your shorts, don't clip on any weight such as a phone. I wish I had seen these in store first, best use on around water, as usual were your other shorts when on dry land with your wallet, phone etc...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from He Loves Them! My husband had never worn Columbia Sportswear shorts made from a lightweight fabric. He was convinced cotton was the only comfortable fabric for warm weather. I purchased 3 pair and he loves them. He is 6' 5" tall and while the 10 inch length works he was most satisfied with the 12 inch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Silver ridge shorts Extremely comfortable and lightweight. These shorts dry very quickly and are true to size. I will be buying a few more pairs of these, and I highly recommend them to anyone else.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from They keep getting cheeper The shorts are light weight and comfortable. The problems; the belt buckle is hard to unlatch and the belt is very slippery so when I tighten it it just slides back out. To few belt loops, the belt tends to fall out when unbuckled. The front pockets are mesh and anything like a key gets stuck in the holes. Every time companies release a new version of this type of shorts the pockets get smaller. The zipper on the fly is hard to slide as well as the pocket zipper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shorts These shorts fit good, and are very light weight. Very comfortable to wear in the heat. The length is okay but it would be nice if them came a little longer. That is the only downside to these shorts.
Date published: 2017-06-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Shorts I bought these shorts a size too large because I read they run a bit small. I usually wear a 34" but purchased the 36" waist size instead, perfect fit!!! The 12" inseam was perfect for me as the ends of the shorts land just above my knee. The shorts are very light, but also made of very durable and comfortable material. I will buy a few more pair for sure!!!
