Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Design The belt is really bad on these they need to put front loops closer together. front of the belt rides up your stomach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite! No seriously they are, they are true to size with all the pockets that I need which makes them very functional. The best part is when I wore them on a recent hiking trip with temperatures above 35c I didn't even know I had them on. The only problem with them is that I ended up ignoring all the other shorts that I have. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable yet functional I purchased 2 pairs of these shorts in preparation for a week in the summer Florida sun at Disney, and I couldn't be happier with their performance. The are super lightweight, not heavy like "normal" cargo shorts from Levi or other department store brands. This came in hugely helpful because I didn't get fatigued just wearing them. The interior mesh lining feels like what you would find in a swimsuit, but it doesn't chafe the way you would expect a swimsuit to. I like the strong Velcro closures on the right leg and back pockets, and the zipper pocket on the left leg helped store items like sunglasses on the more violent rides. They are extremely water resistant. Splash Mountain lived up to its name, and I got wet, but, again, the material shed the water without soaking it up and causing exponential weight for me to walk around in. My only dislike is the belt. It's a nylon belt with a basic clip, but it doesn't stay tight. I find myself having to re-tighten it throughout the day. Beyond that, these are very nice shorts, well made, and I would recommend them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable and light Comfortable shorts. Nice, light feel. Dry quickly if they get wet. Main pockets are a bit shallow and velcro closures are small on other pockets. Luckily there is a zipped pocket for valuables. If front pockets were deeper (so things like a phone or wallet didn’t fall out), I’d give it five stars. If your looking for easy to wear shorts, you will like these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Silver Ridge Cargo Shorts I love the silver ridge line, I own several pairs of both shorts and pants along with button up shirts as well. I only gave it 4 stars because the shorts and pants are always a size small. Knowing this now is not an issue, I normally wear a 34 waist but with these I have to order 36. Other than that, they are awesome!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good but need more room in seat of pants The quality and function of the shorts are excellent but they need more room in the seat of the pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Husband Said A-OK My husband never wants me to buy him anything; says he doesn't need anything. Going to family reunion in Estes Park, CO - bought him two pair. Told him they would be comfortable if we went on a hike, etc. I asked him if he was glad I bought them, "yeah, these are okay, comfortable." (for him that's a rave review!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stretchy These shorts are excellent quality and with the extra stretch, a perfect fit. If you have larger legs above the knee, they can be a little tight while sitting. Otherwise, the perfect light weight, stretchy travel short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice shorts for hot weather Let me start by saying I’m a guy in my mid 50’s. I consider my self fairly hip. That’s why I like the longer length of these shorts. I don’t want to look like all these older white guys running around in short shorts. I love these shorts for the warmer weather we get here in the Sacramento area. I like wearing these out on the boat as well as around town. They are very comfortable!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Included belt is terrible and quality of pant is poor Well the belt is a pain to use doesn't seem like much quality there . Then there is the pant itself . After using them maybe nine or ten times I discovered a hole in the very flimsy pocket. Losing my keys would have been serious for me or anybody for that fact. I would ask for my money back but i think I know what that would do . (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thin shorts These shorts seem to be made well, as is generally true of Columbia products. But they are very thin, making me wonder how long they will last. A previous reviewer bought these in yellow and reported that you can see through them. I believe it; they are that thin. I got them in fossil and they are not see-through. The buckle on the included belt is a plastic snap closure, so it will probably break. But the loops are big enough to support a wider belt. Overall, these shorts are great for hot summer days and very comfortable. But will they last?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lightweight Shorts I love these shorts. They are lightweight and have plenty of pockets for storage. The black belt goes well with the green shorts color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite shorts I like this style shorts because they work well for hiking and bicycling and look dressy enough for casual wear. I added a new pair to the sma style shorts I made a couple years ago. One comment is that one piece of the plastic buckle comes off the belt and I can’t find it. Wish it was possible to buy a replacement buckle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Shorts I was looking for longer legged shorts; ones that came about to my knees. These 12 inch were the perfect shorts. They are very light weight, and a great material. I have now bought another pair and they have become my go to shorts during the summer. Believe me they are nice looking and you can’t find better shorts.
Date published: 2018-06-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and fit I have purchased this product before and was very satisfied. I owned a very similar model but a 11 inch length. I was hesitant of getting the 10 inch since I thought it would be short. I was very impressed with the good quality and design of this product. The fit is great and they are extremely comfortable in Houston TX, summer weather. I would wear this shorts every day if possible.

Love ordering direct from Colombia. Retailers usually on carry 2 or 3 colors. Of course Colombia direct has all sizes, colors, varieties and if you join the freight is free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite shorts ever! I have been a fan of Columbia Sportswear for many years. The quality of their clothing keeps getting better and better! The shorts in particular are fantastic! They are by far my favorite shorts to wear everywhere. I have 4 pair of them and soon will be purchasing a couple more. Highly recommended!!!

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.
