Women's Anytime Outdoor™ Long Short - Plus Size is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best all-around shorts! I initially bought one pair of these shorts to take on a trip to Africa. They were so very comfortable and useful for traveling. When I returned home, I bought more of the shorts in different colors and wear them almost everyday during the hot and humid summers we have in Florida. If these shorts should be offered in newer colors, I will probably buy more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great active plus sized shorts Finally, a pair of hiking shorts for tall, big girl. I love these shorts. PRO: good shape/proportions. length is good so your thighs have no chance to rub. Light weight. Actually come in plus sizes. CON: The color is a little hard to match (purply-navy?), so I don't bother. They do get stinkier than other shorts, but a good rinse and drip dry sorts that. I wish they had belt loops so I could have a tad more security than just the tie.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from very comfortable I love the length and fit. The only reason I can't give these shorts 5 stars is because the material breaks down quickly. I wore and washed these shorts once and they look like I have had them for years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable I love these shorts, long enough to wear for work and short enough to suntan in and they are extremely comfortable (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort fit These fit perfectly. Just enough stretch to look good on and not stretch out and be baggy. Look great straight out of washer and drier. Love these. Would recommend to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product has great features These shorts are the best! They are so comfy lightweight & just hang dry so quickly! The colour is not navy but a bit lighter blue then a navy with a purply tone to it. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic shorts I love this style of product. I have shorts, pants, and capris in this style. The fabric is breathable and resists wrinkles. I took 2 pair of the pants on a 2 week summer trip to Iceland. They were stretchy enough to put a base layer underneath and light enough to wash in the sink and hang dry overnight. The shorts are longer - above the knee and capris are just below the knee. Very comfortable - great hiking shorts. Pockets are a little shallow. Just wish more colors were offered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love these shorts These are some of my new favorite shorts. I like the drawstring waist, so I can adjust without the bulk of a belt. I also like the just below knee length, how they move with you instead of restricting movement (thanks to the stretch in them), and how they dry quickly. I haven't worn these new ones enough yet, but an older pair of these same shorts does have some pilling in the inner thigh area (but I'm hoping Columbia has addressed this issue - but too soon to tell). In any event, I use these for walking, hiking, etc and am very happy with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hiking Shorts I finally found a great pair of hiking shorts in plus size that fit great, do not ride up and wick away moisture. I have worn these on several hiking trails in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent travel shorts I just bought 2 more pair. I traveled to Asia for 6 weeks and they were my favorite. They pack so nicely and are very light in your backpack. I washed them at night and they were completely dry the next morning. Very cool in hot weather and the most comfortable shorts I have ever owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable Great shorts! Love the lenthgh and the material is nice and cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for walking and biking These shorts are my go to shorts for bike riding, walking or hiking. The length is perfect. They come to my knees. When I walk, my thighs rub. With these shorts,the fabric does not start riding up. No chaffing. They look slimming. They have a little stretch. The waist is a little large but there's a drawstring that keeps them in place. They're practically dry right out of the washer too. I have 2 pairs in blue and 2 in black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I've been looking for! I have had a really difficult time finding pants/shorts to hike in, as a woman who wears a size 18. The pants and short in the Anytime Outdoor line are PERFECT! They high-quality and rugged. They have just enough stretch to be extra comfortable while still holding a nice shape, and I love all of the colors. So far, I have the pants in black and blue, and I have these shorts in green. I'm currently waiting on the capri pants in brown. I just can't say enough good things about these shorts - you can dress them up or down depending on what you're doing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable Thank you Columbia for offering same style shorts in Plus size, so many other active wear sellers don't do that. Love these shorts, very comfy, These will be perfect for beach day when I didn't want to wear a bathing suit. Would love to have them in more colors, right now only two choices in my size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long Shorts I love these shorts and have several pairs in every color. I love the draw string and relaxed fit. They dry quick and are very light and airy. My only complaint is that they start to pill between the inner thighs after while. And my most recent pair, the left inside pocket was not sew well and came with a large hole. Now I can't put anything in that pocket without it falling out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anytime outdoor short Perfect for florida weather. The only bad thing is Columbia doesn't seem to manufacture it anymore?! Don't understand why as it was always sold out?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts! I love these and now have them in 3 colors. The material is lightweight so they are very comfortable and dry quickly if you get them wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's Anytime Outdoor Long Shorts-Plus Size Super comfortable shorts. Lots of room and has a little stretch to them. They are light and help keep me cool on warm days. I highly recommend these shorts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anytime, all the time! Best shorts ever. I bought two pairs and loved the relaxed fit, look, fabric , quality and attention to detail. The drawstring allows you to get a perfect fit. I quickly ordered several more pairs. All three colors are great. Love the slash pockets which are flattering and functional. I plan to live in these shorts all summer. I have machine washed in cold water and then drip dry. They dry quickly, very easy care. I love my Anytime long shorts so much that I also bought a couple pairs of Anytime Capris
