Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product The product was great the only down side was that the colors are hard to understand. When I ordered I was ordering hoping it would be the color I wanted. Overall the shorts fit great and were very durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great length. Just what I needed. I'm 5'7, so I ordered the 8" length, and these were perfect. Plus, the material is really nice - they stay cool in the heat and they are comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light weight I ordered these because the inseam length is offered in 8". I also like that they are really light weight and great for the summer time. I ordered a 32" in waist and they where too small. All of my shorts by Columbia are 32" and fit fine. I returned them for 34" with 8" inseam and now they are too loose in the waist and must be worn with a belt. I intend to keep them, just must wear belt..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wash out shorts I really like these shorts. They feel very light yet are cut nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and very comfortable. I've come to prefer poplin fabric for shorts. It's so lightweight that it keeps me cool. These "Washed Out" shorts are a good length (10) and fit very well. I took a chance at ordering "Clean Green"- the last available color- and although it is quite bright, it isn't an annoying color. Overall, I'm glad I bought these- especially since they were on sale for only $10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They are green These are awesome shorts, I own about 4 pairs in various colours. The green ones are super green like they are difficult to wear with anything outside the house without looking dumb, but they are great shorts and I would recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy I could not be happier with these shorts. They were a steal at only $10 and will definitely last awhile. I was a little unsure about the green color as I normally opt for neutrals but I actually really like the color. A couple other reviews said they ran a little small. I have a pair of the Silver Ridge convertible pants in the same size and I actually felt that these fit a bit looser. I am a woman that prefers the fit of men's pants/shorts, and these were plenty roomy in the seat and thigh area. Not too long either. The fabric is a soft cotton and they are very comfortable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Runs very small After many shorts and pants purchased and all fitting well, these pants are either sized incorrectly or not made by Columbia. How else could they be so mis-sized. Nice fabric though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Shorts at a Great Price Nice cotton shorts for all-around use. For $10 you can't go wrong, even if you don't like the current one color (green - and not a bad green either) choice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Green shorts On clearance these shorts are a decent price. However if you buy these I would recommend going a size bigger unless you like tighter shorts. I not a "muscular" guy in the legs but I found them to be snug. Good luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't wait for summer! Got my new shorts from Columbia and they look and feel great. The only problem is it just snowed a ton these last two days and I won't be able to wear them for four more months!!
