Rated 5 out of 5 by Louie6 from These shorts saved my day Not only are these shorts extremely comfortable they saved my day on vacation. We were heading out for a boat ride but first stopped for breakfast. I split an entire cup of hot black coffee on my lap. I immediately stood up and wiped the coffee off my shorts and they stayed dry and did not stain at all!! We were able to get to the boat on time and enjoy the entire day in these stain free shorts! Thank you Columbia for a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by verrgrrl from Fantastic shorts for all occasions I love these shorts so much I bought them in 2 colors. They are very comfortable and true to size/fit. Not only functional for hiking, kayaking, biking, etc but I can wear them to work. I'm petite (5'1) so finding flattering capris/long shorts can be a challenge so these are the perfect length for me. I bike commute so these are perfect for navigating through Florida summers and afternoon rainstorms. The only downside, which isn't even that bad, is that the fabric does seem to attract pet hair. But the colors are such that I don't think its really noticeable and its easy enough to remove with a roller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BabsyD from Great shorts! I bought these shorts for a trip to New Zealand that I'm taking shortly. They fit so well, are comfortable and will be great for either hiking, walking or going to a casual dinner. I am thrilled with them. I have a couple of pairs of Columbia shorts that I've been wearing for years, but they are looking the worse for so much wear. I couldn't find the same model but this pair is even better!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Alexa8 from NOT TRUE TO SIZE! I have 2 pairs of the shorts I ordered and wanted another pair. So, I ordered another pain of the same size - 6. When the shorts arrived they were too tight, so I ordered the next size... 8. This size is ALSO TOO SMALL! Therefore, because I am a long-time customer of Columbia and I love the original shorts, I will order the the next size up - 10. - My normal pants size is between 4-6 ... go figure! Manufacturing error?!? My main grip is that you do not offer free returns & I have to drive 52 miles round trip each time to return these shorts to your store. You need to find a better way! A. Alexander Product # 8 87253 36999 9 OMG! I just went to your online site to order the next size up & the price went from $19.98 to $60.00 - ARE YOU KIDDING ME? - THIS IS SHAMEFUL!!! Obviously, I’m NOT going to reorder another pair at 3x the amount. Especially when YOUR size reorders are incorrect. Original shorts made in China - reordered shorts made in Vietnam... Your new manufacturer’s sizing is WAY OUT OF LINE! Someone at the top needs to make this right. A. Alexander

Rated 5 out of 5 by Inky2 from Long shorts I have owned a pair of these long shorts for a few years in grey. When I saw them on sale in another color, I did not hesitate to buy another pair. They are my favorite shorts. Great for hiking and just hanging out. The length is perfect. Long enough to cover aged knees and yet short enough to be cool on the hottest summer days. The fabric is pretty well wrinkle free and packs easily. I love them and highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vizslagirl from Super comfortable and flattering to wear “anytime” I just ordered two more of these fantastic shorts after seeing them on sale. They are my vacation go to, I wear them hiking, kayaking(quick drying), sightseeing, out to eat, over a bathing suit, everywhere! I usually wear a size 12 but these fit better especially in the waist in a size 10 . The drawstring waist does help. They do stretch a little when wearing but after washing they are back to original fit. The length is just above the kneecap, (I am 5’8”) which is perfect for these 60 something legs! I have several of the “anytime” capris which are fantastic as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1BusyMom from So comfy! I love these shorts! I love the comfortable length, that can go casual or be dressed up. The fabric is so lightweight and has great stretch. I bought them in 3 colors. They are great for travel too! I wore them every day on my trip to the South Pacific and I loved that I could hand wash them and they would be dry by morning. I have recommended them to all my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LeeLeigh from Love these shorts! These long shorts fit really well, and the drawstring helps keep them snug to my waist without having to use a belt. They are long enough tnat they can be reasonably dressy as well. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Terri33 from This Line Highly recommended The Anytime Outdoor Long Short has the same great fit as the pants and capri's. We ordered these for my Mother to try as she has a shorter leg length....they are working great for her! She wears the size 8 and the fit is perfect. Great product and we have recommend the entire line of Anytime Outdoor pants, capri's or shorts to many friends and will continue to do so! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goldenfish from Good for when the weather changes These capri pants are great for travel when one doesn't know whether to wear shorts or long pants. They wear well. They seem to wrinkle a bit, but when hung out the wrinkle disappears. The older version seemed to be made of slightly thicker material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Desinadora from The Most Flattering Shorts Ever! I recently purchased these shorts to get me through the hot summer of 2018 and I have been living in them ever since! First, I must mention that the fit is very flattering. The length is elegant, and the waistband is smooth and adjustable. These shorts will make your hips look narrower and your thighs trimmer. Worn with a smart top or even a jacket, you are all set for an evening out! My shorts are a soft sage green, wonderful with white, black, pale blue, or a print top. The fabric is whisper light, but I know that it is a rugged, quick wash and dry material that will last for years. They will be a staple for travel, as they are virtually wrinkle free. I have had many compliments on this product. Absolutely delighted! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Betty88 from My favorite fishing shorts I love these shorts! They are lightweight, very cool for hot weather, dry fast, and extremely comfortable. They are a loose fit. I have washed them and they wash well, good as new. I bought a size larger because I am curvy and that's what usually fits in Columbia, but found these to be true to size. With the drawstring waist though, the looser fit is actually very comfortable for kayaking, fishing, etc, so I am ok with the size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hopearotie from Great teacher wear Love these shorts, I bought my first pair and wore them the entire time I was pregnant! They were destroyed after my body changing and my shorts having to change with it! I bought a couple more pairs for school (I teach school for a living) they look great and are the most comfortable thing you will ever wear:) rarely do you get comfort and cuteness in one package! Only complaint is I have had at least 1 seam come undone on every pair I have, not a big deal to me, I mended the seam and away I went in my comfortable stylish shorts! I wear these shorts a lot and would say I put them through the ringer but I still don’t want to have to mend them...I think it’s because the shorts are stretchy and the thread is not!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaybeKatie from All Purpose Short This will be my go-to short this summer for a lot of different things. It's incredibly comfortable and is perfect for hiking--wicks moisture and stretches to accommodate movement. That said, I'll probably still wear this for urban exploring as well; they are versatile as the styling isn't all, "look at me being outdoorsy and stuff." Good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SherryH from Functional comfort I love this line, I have the long shorts and the pants all have worked great for me. I’ve been ordering and wearing these for 2-3 years now. I highly recommend these. They are great for hiking, gardening, a day of errands, you name it! I can’t say enough good things. They do run a little big so if you’re between sizes you might want to go down a size.
