Women’s Arch Cape™ III Short is rated out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KBrew from Great buy Typically I wear size 8 petite and I have a large waist-hip ratio with waist 29-30 and hips 40. Per the size chart measurements, Arch Cape III (4" shorts inseam) might run true to size if slightly bigger. I also ordered Saturday Trail & Pilsner Peak shorts and these were the only ones that didn't gap by inches in the waist thanks to the elastic back. Love soft shorts with pockets for casual bike riding so I can keep keys handy. Great quality just like another pair of Columbia shorts I've had for probably 10 years now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by clairedelune from Great buy These shorts are great for hiking & other outdoor activities. I got them on sale in both the khaki & the slate gray. I love the colors & the length, the only issue I ever have with these is that they tend to ride up a bit on me. The waist fits very well though! I enjoy wearing them out, they can just be a tad uncomfortable to sit in for long periods of time, which is something I don't often do! Great shorts for an affordable price!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Maryup from Hipster fit Disappointed with the fit at the waist. They fit at the hips, crotch is way too short!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lyssslynn from Best shorts I own! These shorts are great! I wore them on a five hour hike and they were super comfortable and kept me from chaffing at all. I got the 6 inch ones which go right about to mid thigh, which is perfect! They are also super cute to wear anytime. I am very happy I bought these.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cass989 from Too Small I'm usually a 4 in just about everything, but these shorts wouldn't fit. I would need a 6, so size up when purchasing this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MoonJules from Great fit I'm 5'5" and around 140lbs.. I'm a bit curvy on the bottom and these shorts fit great! Not too short and waist was comfortable. Planning on buying another!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dodie from Way too small I have other similar Columbia shorts that fit fine, but these were way too small. Returning for a larger size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Felishia from Versatile and Comfortable I have been looking for shorts that I could wear casually and during activities like hiking or canoeing- These do the trick! I am originally a size 8 but that was too big on me so I went to a 6 and it fits great! Would love if there were other color options though.
