Women's Endless Trail™ Short is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome shorts! These shorts are incredibly comfortable. They're flexible and conventional for hiking, running, walking, but also very comfortable/perfect for lounging around and relaxing all day. They're a little longer than some other shorts, but they're still not too bulky or anything. Ordered size small for 125 lb, 5 ft 2 in. Perfect size. I received these and wore them for 2 days and immediately ordered more!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hiking Shorts are really Running shorts Don't get me wrong, I love these shorts, but the picture doesn't really show the shorts like they are. These shorts are typical running shorts and the front of the short catches on the leg when you bring your leg up high for climbing up a rock or trying to climb over a downed tree. They don't show water (sweat) marks and dry very quickly. I have been using these to run during the week and wore them on the Icicle Creek Lookout hike. They are great for running, and I just had to randomly grab the front of the short on the hike (we had to climb over 105 fallen trees, we counted).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing As pictured, it appears these shorts have a waist high rise and a bit longer leg length. I have had other Columbia Sportswear products that were great. These were disappointing; I have given them away!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Endless Trail Short Only downfall is runs a little smaller than true size 12. Still after a little weight loss I look forward to wearing them. Loved the color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fitting Shorts Product excellent for easy movement when working out. The design of the side vent and angled pocket makes this product exceptional.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice shorts, but a big tight through the hips Happy with the quality of the product and the fit everywhere except through the hips. I'm not very hippy and have a pretty flat rear end so I was sort of surprised about this. I'm between size 10 and 12 in pants and ordered large in these. They are nice for just relaxing in and running errands, but I won't be wearing them to do anything very active. If I wasn't living overseas, I'd probably return these, but I'll keep them around for running around on the weekends in the tropical heat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than Your Average Pair These shorts are comfortable, slightly tight around the thighs, but function well. I think as far as looks, they could be half an inch shorter because they look slightly dorky and long. So far I have ran trails and hiked in them, and they are fantastic. They ride up a little bit, but it isn't in an unattractive way. Overall they are a comfortable pair of shorts that I think will last my trail days for quite a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts! Especially for the sale price. I bought these because the price couldn't be beat, and I am really happy with them. I've just returned from a long weekend backpacking, and they were perfect for the trip. Didn't stretch out, were sturdy, dirt didn't stick ... Nice shorts! The pocket, though small, was just right for random items.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Shorts Tried to get a size larger but they were out. Probably will return them - they do run small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for all weather! I bought these shorts for their quick dry feature, and they're perfect. The fabric is nice and thin without feeling flimsy, and the medium on my 135 lb frame is perfect. I'm very happy I bought two pairs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hiking shorts Fit true to size, comfortable, dried fairly fast, fit great over tights and generally wore very well! I got XS and am about 115 lb, 33" hip 25" waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts These shorts run a little big and longer than what I'm used to but I don't mind it. Overall great shorts for outdoor and water adventures! They dry super fast and are very durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts Perfect length, I don't think they're too short as another reviewer stated, and I'm tall (5'10"). They're lightweight, cool & nice colors. I bought 2: the blue & green, now I'm buying the gray and purple.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too short These were much shorter than I was expecting...my kids would call them "booty" shorts. Too bad, because they are really nicely made and look like they would be great over a swimsuit (that's why I ordered them). I ordered them a bit larger than I thought I needed, but they are just too short for my tastes. Will be returning them.
