Be wary of size quality controlI have six pairs of Columbia shorts in size 6. I am 5'5" tall and weigh 116 pounds. Size 6 fits just the way I want ... until I ran into these shorts.
I need a pair of lightweight, quick-dry navy shorts for wear as a swimming & diving official. These are similar to two pairs of Columbia's PFG shorts I've had for four years, in khaki, so I decided to try these in navy. They are similar in style to my previous Columbia PFG shorts but not quite the same, so I ordered a size 6 and a size 8, to be safe.
Upon arrival, I took out the size 6, said, "holy cow!" and tried them on. After I zipped and snapped them, they fell straight to the floor. HUGE. My pudgy husband said, "how come that never happens to ME?!"
Then I took out the size 8. That pair fit the way I expected an 8 would -- a bit too big and unworkable without belt loops.
Clearly the size 6 is mis-marked. Using a tape measure, the size 6 waistband is THREE inches larger than the size 8.
Next, I called Columbia and talked to a customer-service representative, who asked that I please include the sizing error information when I return both pairs of shorts, which I said I'd do. I told her I would be ordering another size 6 and a size 4, hopeful that one pair would fit correctly.
Fast forward to the arrival of the second order, and the size 6 fits well -- quite comparable to the four-year-old size 6 khaki PFG shorts -- so I am keeping those. I did not remove the size 4 pair from the packaging.
As for these shorts' design and fit, be aware that the thigh cut is a bit tighter than Columbia's usual style. The side-to-rear pocket on the left is lined with a stiff black material that is meant to protect your skin from sharp objects such as lures; it appears it will work well as a cellphone pocket with its top tab closure.
If you are lucky to get the right size, these seem to be really good shorts. I think I'll be happy wearing them on the pool deck. In the meantime, I have three pairs of shorts to return ...

These shorts really are THE ULTIMATE CATCH!I bought a pair of these and after wearing them once, I couldn't wait to get a second pair. Great fit and stretch and dries quickly. They roll up perfectly without any bulky lumps if you want to change them from 8" to 6".
