Women's Anytime Outdoor™ Long Short is rated out of 5 by 111.
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 WestCoastPaddler from Fantastic shorts Love these shorts, very versatile and the light material is very comfortable. They dry quickly so I wear them when I go kayaking or hiking. Just ordered a second pair! Great fit like all Columbia products! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

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 Jenn618 from Perfect for hiking I got these specifically for a trip to the Badlands. These are perfect for hiking, lightweight, with a touch of stretch. I have been getting a lot of use just wearing them for errands. Very happy with my purchase.

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 5 out of 5 by missk from Light and Comfortable This is the second pair I have ordered. They are a light material, dry quickly and do not wrinkle, so are good for travelling. Stains come out with ease. My only complaint is I wish they came in wider range of colours and I would purchase more. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

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 lizzie69 from Very happy I have two pairs of these. They fit well and are extremely comfortable with just a hint of 'give'. I wear them all day when I am volunteering and they look almost as good at the end of the day as at the beginning. Nice choice of colors too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Retiredgirl from Love my Anytime Outdoor Long Shorts I am a 60-year young, active female. These shorts are my go to favorites. The fabric is silky smooth and lightweight and these shorts do NOT cling or bunch up. They are perfect as walking shorts, hiking or everyday wear. They extend just to the top of my knee. Love them!

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 Ada87 from awesome! I had bought a similar one long ago and I really wanted another pair because I loved them. I finally got to order only, which had never done and it was awesome experience. I was a bit afraid of the size, but fit perfect and those are the most comfy and great shorts ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WesternGal from Happy with these shorts! I am happy with these shorts. Great length. The fabric is stretchy, light, cool and comfortable. I am usually a size 4 but wear 6 in Columbia and these are no exception. Fit perfectly! They a quite figure hugging but the fabric doesn't show any underwear lines. For the great price, these are a great deal!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KitKat2 from Love this short!! Last year, I bought a pair of these, and loved them. So this year, I bought two more in other colors. The fit is fabulous (I'm a bit on the large size through the hips) and the length (down to the knee) is so flattering. So comfortable, launders like a dream, and packs very small. They're perfect!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by joys783 from Excellent Everyday Short These shorts are perfect for everyday wear, working around the house, out shopping, they are so comfortable! I have 3 pairs now. I really like the length. At first, I thought they would be too long, however, they are contoured very nicely and they don't feel excessively long on my short 5'2" frame. I just started buying Columbia products looking for more durable goods, so these are a great find compared to other brands I have tried. No piling of fabric after several washes. Definitely worth the investment.
