Rated 5 out of 5 by byhalia from Love them I loved them so much that I ordered three more pairs. Colors are a bit more muted than pic appears.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shonna from Perfect In Every Way I chose size 8 with 6 length and usually wear a 6- 8 in shorts or pants. They fit perfectly, not too short and not too long, have deep pockets so nothing will fall out while on the trails, allow me a full stride, and are super cute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Susan7788 from Love These Shorts!! Quality shorts that look great and wear nicely. They run small--I normally wear a size 6 (130 lbs, 5' 6") and I bought the shorts in a size 8 and they fit fine. Great colors and wonderful for life on the lake! Highly recommend and I plan to buy more colors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by HotInFLgal from Is this sized for Juniors? First order/purchase with Columbia. I went with a size 2. I'm 120 lbs/5'2", pear figure. The shorts "fit" but not exactly as I would have hoped. I ordered online and did not have an opportunity to try one size up. My biggest issue is that the fit from the crotch to the top of the shorts is very short, front and back, and I'm petite!! When I sit I am exposing way too much in the back. Maybe size 4 would have had a little more height or maybe would have been too wide. Hoping I can find in a local store and do a swap. For comparison purposes, I am a perfect size 00 regular shorts for Ann Taylor Loft. Or size 0 petite shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amandam87 from Love the product, but buy a size up I am absolutely always a size 2 and had to buy a size 4, so I would reccomend buying up one size from your normal size. But the quality is great and they're a perfect casual summer short.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shadowhunter from Hate the button Overall I love the shorts. Except for the button. Not sewn on very well. It keeps popping open on me. I’m going to try to re- sew it on and see if that works better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GeeC from Good quality shorts, run a lil' small. Nice weighted material, great for everyday use in the short-wearing weather months. Does run a bit on the small side, glad I heeded the other reviewers and ordered up one size. On other shorts from Columbia (and everywhere else, usually), I have trouble with shorts being too tight in the thigh and/or they ride up with every step (I have thunder-thighs), but the waist-to-thigh ratio on these is spot on and the material is thick enough to prevent any riding up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joycerunion from Nice looking shorts Really like these shorts. Being a bit older, I would have preferred them being a bit longer but they are so comfortable and look so good off and on. Just a smart looking pair of shorts that are very well made. Would purchase them again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LondonBoxer from Cute but run small These shorts are so cute, but they are SMALL! I know other reviews said that, too, but I was hoping maybe not all sizes would be affected. I got them in a size 16 and they barely fit over my legs, and I cannot button them. The anchor print is super cute, though, and the 6-inch inseam is perfect. Unfortunately I will try to return these, since I cannot wear them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Julie251980 from Love these It is nice to have shorts that long enough for women over the age of 18. Honestly, I do love these shorts. I usually wear size 4 and ordered a size 6, and they fit perfect I bought all the colors available in my size!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KimFennell from Vanderbilt Fan ANCHOR DOWN!!! as a Vanderbilt University fan, I had to get a few pair of these cute anchor shorts for friends and other fans. "Anchor Down!" is VU's call. These have a cute fit in the long and shorter measurements

Rated 3 out of 5 by ATXJR from Cute shorts, runs small I was excited to get these shorts. I'd ordered a pair of Columbia pants in size 8 that fit comfortably. I went up a size for the shorts so they would be longer and sit lower and the size 10 runs smaller than the 8 in the pants.

Rated 3 out of 5 by kimen8 from comfy but slightly see-through These shorts were very comfortable and lightweight...perfect for summer months. The only thing I didn't like about them was that you could see the pockets through the shorts...which created this awkward U-shape in the groin area visible to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wmariejones from Love these shorts! I love these shorts. The wrinkle a little on the front, but it isn't too bad. They are super comfy. Sometimes shorts stretch after wearing them for a bit and become too loose...these shorts don't do that!! It's great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by EmilyT from Returning The material for these wasn't quite what I was expecting (it was more of a linen-type material) and even though I'm a straight size 4 in pretty much everything, there was almost an inch between the button and closure. Too bad; they're a really fun color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MamaKyle from Excellent fit, flattering style I bought these last year in collegiate navy oxford and couldn't wait until they came around again. It was hard to choose another color, but I knew their fit would flatter my tush! I don't fish or do any sports, but I like to look put-together in the California sun and these do the trick.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rachaeldl from Should've gone up a size I ordered these without trying them on first, which was my first mistake. Columbia's clothes have a habit of being inconsistently sized between styles. I normally wear a 4 in their shorts and have thick thighs. These didn't even fit my waist. They are extremely soft though, and had I gotten the right size, I feel that they would be very comfortable. Overall, I can't give a good review about function, but definitely go up a size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KatieD from My favorite shorts These are my summer go-to shorts! Last year I got the light/bright yellow color and wore them constantly; this year I was lucky enough to get the navy right before they ran out. I often get compliments on them, and for me they are just the right length and flattering to the booty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by magswilli from Great shorts! These are easily my favorite shorts. They fit well and are a good length. I am 5 foot and they are modest while still looking trendy! The fabric is lightweight and quality. It doesn't matter that they are PFG, I still wear them with dressy shirts. The only problem is that because the fabric is thin, they seem to wrinkle easily on the tops of my thighs when I sit. Regardless, I still give them 5 stars.
