Women's Anytime Outdoor™ Long Short - Plus Size is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 17.
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 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 4 out of 5 by from Needs a bit of elastic in the waist overall, I LOVE these shorts! I am not a shorts wearing person, as I prefer to keep my legs covered, but these are great! Just the right length if you really don't like...shorts. :) The fabric is great: light weight enough that it's the next best thing to wearing nothing, when it comes to comfort in a hot climate. I love the adjustability of the drawstring waist, but I do wish there was perhaps a small section of elastic in the back. I find that when I stand up the shorts tend to hang a bit lower on my waist than they were before I sat down. I think a little elastic would be discreet but rectify that issue. Even with that minor issue, I'm still ordering another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Comfy! These shorts are so comfortable, it feels like I'm wearing pajamas. Very cool on warm days. They do run a little large though. I would definitely recommend these for hiking, camping, fishing, or just running errands!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile shorts This is my second pair of these shorts, although this pair is a 16W and my first pair were 16R. Both fit well, with the 16W being just a little bit roomier in the seat and stomach. I bought these for kayaking, with the longer length giving me coverage so paddle drip doesn't wash off sunscreen on my legs. They repel water fairly well, have UPF protection, and are quite lightweight and comfortable. Bonus for me, drawstring at the waist, which allows better fit for my rounder-hips-smaller-waist figure. A little pricey, but if you can find them on sale, get a pair. Highly recommend as versatile, all-around shorts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from outdoor long short Love these long shorts. I do photography and they are great for out in the field when I'm out photographing birds. They are comfortable and casual enough for grappling a bite to eat at a restaurant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy these. I already owned three pair of these in regular long pants. Those I've worn every single week for going on 3 years now, and they're still in great shape. These shorts are every bit as comfy and I'm so glad I got them, I'm ordering another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trail Shorts I have 2 pairs now. I purchased them in gray and tusk. Wash on gentle and hang to dry. They move with you so their are no restrictions. These are my favorite shorts heading into summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wear these everywhere I bought a pair of these for camping and kayaking, and now I wear them for everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style I love the fabric and length of these shorts. They can be dressed up or dressed down. I like that my top doesn't cling to the fabric. I carry my weight in my hips so anything that helps to keep the line flowing I can appreciate and I like versatility that it provides. These are probably going to be my go to shorts of the summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! These were a pleasant surprise and I want to order more! I was afraid these would be too tight in the thighs as I am usually a true women's size 16 (plus) and these were wonderful! They were generous and work perfect for the hikes I wore them on. I haven't worn shorts in 15 years so it is nice to have options for a woman with curves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready for Spring! These shorts fit as expected although the legs could be a bit slimmer. I am between sizes, and need a larger waist so went up to 24. I am Plus size between a 22 and 24, and 5'10" tall. These hit at my kneecap. The fabric is light and has a little bit of stretch. I haven't worn them outside yet, but they will get much use this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these I absolutely loves these shorts. They are super soft and very light. I travel a lot and these pack very well. I love the fact that they have a nice stretch to the material. I wish I had more pairs andmay see about purchasing more in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavenly Shorts I love these shorts. The fit, quality and so very comfortable. I may never buy another pair of shorts. I brought them for a cruise and they were perfect! I walked for several hours in very warm weather. They are worth every penny.
