Women's PFG Coral Point™ II Short is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 108.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute shorts Great length, not too short or long. Great for hiking or water sports. Wish I had purchased more in different colors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great shorts but.. I love these shorts, they are professional and comfortable. However, the fit is pretty weird. The waist in both pairs I ordered are pretty large- even have elastic in the waist but the legs are so tight. I can’t sit or even bend over without them being way too tight on my legs. I made slits in the side and now they are great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy short I bought this short last winner to go to Florida loved them. Purchased them this summer in another color, very comfortable short. True to size not supershort but if looking for a longer short this would not be it. I’m 5’5” and weigh 130. Hope this is helpful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Columbia's last order I have a lot of Columbia clothes and I looked in my closet and compared what I was ordering to what I had (size-wise). None of the four things I ordered fit - I was bummed. I'm not going to order online anymore since the size varies so much with the article of clothing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from As Advertised These shorts are pretty basic. Fabric is thin but sturdy. I bought a small which just fits. I probably could have used a slightly larger pair for a more comfortable fit around the waist. Maybe a little shorter than ideal but pants were on sale so good value drove my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shorts! These are now my go to shorts. Bought the first pair last August on sale and they are they most comfortable shorts I have ever worn. The fabric is breathable and that makes them feel even better in the hot, humid KY summer. Not too short and not frumpy either. I searched and found them online here and bought 4 more pairs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice shorts but sizing off Good looking pair of shorts with the expected Columbia quality- nicely finished, attractive styling. BUT, I had to return as a size medium was more like a large. I bought a pair of "Sandy River" water shorts in size Med in the same order, and they fit just right. However, these PFG shorts (Blue Macaw) were so big I could slide them right off without unsnapping or unzipping. I have read elsewhere that for quite a few individuals, Med is too large but size Small is too small. I didn't want to chance that so requested a refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable shorts I love the fit of these shorts! The pockets are a little weird, but I generally don’t use pockets, so it’s all good. They seem to be well made and the fabric is light making them conmfortable for a full day of fishing in the sun. Definitely recommend!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loved the Original Coral Point I owned the Original Coral Point in every color and loved them. We live on a boat several months of the year and they were perfect. Unfortunately the Coral Point II has a shorter inseam and is just not flattering on "mature" women. They also seemed a little snugger through the hips with a slightly gapping waist. They do, however, still have the same construction of the front, which makes for a very flattering fit across the stomach. Please offer in a longer length again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy polished look These are my current favorites. I work in the boating industry in Miami and I use these shorts as a work uniform when I go out to meet customers on board their yachts at the marina docks to give work estimates. Straight from the drier with a long sleeve pullover or polo and I look polished and professional while being comfortable and protected. I own eight or ten pair in classic tan navy white and black and love them all. I also have a 15 day cruise scheduled in a couple weeks and you can be sure that I’m packing these shorts because they are so light and air dry very quickly and still look great! They have a zipper on a deep back pocket that’s great for cash and just enough elastic in the waist to keep them from binding without looking gathered. Awsome product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shorts I bought these in the black while on sale. They are a great addition to my summer wardrobe. They dry really fast and are good in and out of the water. Definitely will be buying a navy pair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not for me I bought 4 colors of these expecting them to be my new favorite summer casual shorts.. but alas, they are too short for my liking. I have other Columbia shorts with 7" inseam and love them, but this Coral Point short with the same measured inseam doesn't fit as well. I wanted to like them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Summer go to Shorts From Hiking on the trails, to a nice 18 hole round of golf, to a quick trip to the grocery store, these shorts have you covered!!! The Corals are flattering and comfortable. These have summer written all over them. Get these for all your activities and these shorts will even make it through the beginning of fall in the Southern regions! You will love these shorts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair of shorts Really good price and very comfortable shorts. I usually wear a size 2 in Columbia shorts and figured a size small would be comparable to a size 2 but these shorts were too big unfortunately, so I had to refund them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the look of the shots Order one size larger than you typically wear, runs small and form fitting. Not loose or baggy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and functional Comfy and functional. I sized up based on other reviews, and got a L rather than my usual M. The waist is a tad too big (will probably need a belt for future wear), but the legs fit well and overall there is plenty of room for movement. Quick dry, good stretch, good length inseam.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! These shorts fit and function perfectly. I’ve worn them several time already! They wash up nicely, don’t wrinkle and just feel right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Water Shorts These are my favorite water shorts. They are 6”, comfortable and non-constricting. Follow the sizing chart. I will say they do NOT have a lot to stretch to them, and if any it is minimal!! If inbetween sizes get next size up. They are opaque, but I do not know if the white color is or not, as I got some of the other darker colors in medium. This shorts shed water well, can be worn in the pool, do not hold a lot of water and dry rather quickly. I wish Columbia would make these in a longer length with cargo pockets! Hint hint!!
Date published: 2018-06-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shorts! I really like the structure of these shorts. They are sturdy, will likely quick dry, though haven't tested them yet, and are flattering. The one thing I'd note, is the material does not have much stretch or give to it, but I still think they would be good for any water activity, or a hike as well! I'm 5'7", 180lbs with athletic thighs and size XL fit great and give me a bit a room to work with.
Date published: 2018-06-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful color and quality, just no stretch. I originally tried these on in a local store. I tried on a small and even with the buttons snapped, I could slide them off. They didn't have an xsmall so I ordered these online. The xsmall fits perfect when I'm standing, but when I sit there is no stretch and it digs into my underwear area and waist, and is extremely tight and uncomfortable. For reference, I am around 113 lbs, work out, and have a bubble butt. I usually wear a size 2 in most brands. I absolutely adore these shorts, but they need some stretch in them to be perfect. These are 100% nylon. As far as color and feel, these seem like amazing quality and the buttons are a sturdy plastic. I could lounge, dress these up, and take these on water adventures. Due to me not being able to sit in them, I am returning/exchanging for a stretchier pair. Please make these with some stretch material!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My "go to" shorts! I bought these shorts on sale in blue and loved them so much I had to buy another pair in black! I teach outside and these are my favorite shorts! Very durable, move with me, don't ride up, are light weight, and wash well! I love the fit and coverage, however the legs get narrow so when you sit they get tight if you've got athlete legs like I do.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good fit. I usually wear a 14 in the Columbia pants. I ordered a Large & they wear to tight. Returned at my expense & ordered a XL. The XL is to big. Plus not to comfortable while bending. Rides up & cuts into my legs. Will return the XL.
Date published: 2018-03-28
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too big and Too Small These did not work for me. The large was too big and the medium was too small. I wear a size 8 everywhere. I am 5’6” tall, weigh 142 lbs, am 34 x 30” x 40” currently. The snap closure was plastic and very difficult to snap open. I would have accepted that if one of the sizes fit me though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love these shorts I have had 2 pairs of the khaki pair for about 2 years now and besides some staining they are in great condition. I decided though it was time for another pair. This time I bought the navy. I love these shorts, they dry quickly and provide great range of motion. My only complaint is I wish they came in lengths. If they were an inch or so longer they'd be absolutely perfect. I wear these to work and often feel they are a bit short!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit for a Coach I have been a softball coach for over 15 years. This is the only brand that meets my needs and this style is my favorite thus far. So being a softball coach I have a few requirements; 1) they have to withstand dirt, clay and hard work. 2) They have to help me stay cool and not make me sweat more than I already am. 3) They have to look nice from beginning to end of the day. Colombia is the only brand that can check off every item on that lists and lasts more than one summer. I trust that I am getting what I pay for when purchase this product from this company!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coral point II short! 6” I got these for a cruise and have always brought denim or canvas shorts. These are awesome!! Of course it rained and these are quick dry. The zippered rear pocket always kept my ID and cc safe. Can use for snorkeling if need be. Material is non chaffing and front pockets are lined with mesh. Shorts are not binding or restricting. Have 3 pairs may buy more!! The blue is beautiful and really pops with a white shirt. Highly recommended and Columbia quality through and through!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for warm weather! I work outside in the Florida heat, and I always have trouble finding khaki shorts. I tried these on in a size S and they were surprisingly big, so I ordered a size down and got the XS. I cannot tell you how happy I am with this product. It fits perfectly, isn't too short, and most importantly, the material is quick-dry for those sweaty months! Since it does run big, I suggest ordering a size down. I'm 5'4 and 105lbs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Way too big I've bought other shorts from Columbia and they were great. These shorts are great looking but way too big. I had to take them in 1 & 1/2 " in the back and now they look stupid if I tuck a shirt in. I wished I had sent them back for a medium but oh well....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, but doesn't run small Very nice shorts- well made, good rear end coverage, lightweight. Unlike other reviewers, I didn't find these ran small - quite the opposite. I normally wear a size 6-8 pant, and I ordered the medium shorts expecting them to be tight. Instead, I think I will try to take the waistband in a bit as they are in danger of falling down. Very cute and practical, so worth keeping. I'm 5'8" tall and 135 lbs - I have a pudgy tummy so usually have to order up in size for that, but not in this case.
