Men's Silver Ridge™ Cargo Short is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 126.
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 5 out of 5 by from Good shorts I bought these shorts for hiking and jumping in and out of water. Wanted something that will dry quickly. I expect they’ll be fine. I’ve used other Columbia shorts with excellent results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great comfort and quality Living in Southern California, I wear shorts 9-10 months of the year. These are my go to shorts when I leave the house. I prefer material that is light and allows the air to flow enough to keep me cool. The adjustable belt allows me to take advantage of the ability to carry a lot of gear while hiking or about town. This is the third or fourth pair of silver ridge shorts and I hope that any future changes will only make them more comfortable and functional!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not happy with the fit not happy with the fit. Same columbia short size as what I've always worn, and my old ones fit me fine, but all three new pairs of shorts are tight. There was no return bag included with the order so Im' stuck with them. Probably will not order online again fro Columbia again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality - Good Fit I have many many Columbia products. The main reason I stick to the Columbia brand is two fold; 1. You get what you pay for. You can always spend more on other brands, I question weather you get more?? 2. Consistent fit. Order your size and it should fit. I order wide shoes and they ALWAYS fit. As do my shorts, pants, shirts, tee shirts etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable, comfortable, all weather I own 4 pair of these shorts and 3 pair of pants. I Just got back from two weeks in Banff and Jasper Nat'l parks. We went on some serious hikes in various types of weather....cold,warm, rain, mud and a little snow. Came home thru them in the wash and they're like new. Some how I lost a plastic belt buckle part and called Colombia this morning. They r unable to provide a part or a new belt. They suggested I visit REI for a new belt or a discount on another pair of pants. I let them know that neither option was really acceptible in consideration of customer service. I suggested they order a supply of belts to keep locally.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight Shorts, Best for Hot Days "Modified from my Silver Ridge pant review." Nice pair of shorts for a hot day while doing some light hiking/walking on a well established trail. However, don't expect these shorts to offer much protection. Although the material does not tear easily, it will not serve as a buffer to branches or other obstacles, so stay on the trail. I've have mainly worn these shorts for urban adventures during summer months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cargo shorts I had been wanting a pair of these shorts so when they went on sale and with a 20% off coupon it was the right time. Very light weight, cool, very pleased with the fit and the stretch waist band is a plus. I will buy another pair or two.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite short! My husband is picky about his shorts. These were a home run!! We found the first pair at Retail but they only had one pair in his size. I was thrilled to find them on the Columbia site, and them being 50% off was even better. He can get several wears out of them before they need to be laundered. They pack well too. Light, durable and comfortable. Thanks Columbia. We are big fans!!!
