Rated 3 out of 5 by from Casual shorts Always love everything I get from Columbia! However found a rip in the seam of the crotch on only the second time I wore them. It didn’t seem that I would’ve been able to rip them myself so must’ve been a loose seam. Great fitting, looking shorts otherwise. I’m sure I would not have had any trouble returning them, just not worth the effort at the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shorts for Active Mom These are the most comfortable and versatile shorts. I love them. I have worn them around town running errands, at the park, and white water rafting. They are comfortable and dry quickly when wet. I love the pull on styling and the pockets are just the right size. I only wish they came in a few more colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for I purchased these shorts to add to my summer camping clothes. The shorts run true to size, I usually wear an XS and they fit great. These shorts are stretchy, move easily with movement, light weight, and dries easily when wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite shorts! I love that these don't have a button, zipper or drawstring. Just pull 'em up and good to go! I wear these while I'm active, running errands or lounging around the house. These are so comfortable, lightweight and ideal for pretty much anything. They are also very flattering - I get a ton of compliments on them. I will definitely be buying more and I hope Columbia keeps them in stock!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shorts These shorts are the best because they slip on w/ no zipper or snap to bulk up your middle section. They fit great, are comfortable & are perfect for hot summers in Florida. They are not too short or too long. I am 5'3", weight ~118 lbs.
