The shorts look wonderful, very comfortable, deep pockets the way I like, high quality product. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by EJefferys from Comfortable, classy, stretchy, + pockets! I am 5’1” and weigh 124lbs and ordered the size 6 in the blue color bc that’s the only thing that was left in clearance. I was expecting them to feel loose, bc size 4 typically fits me better. However, I was pleasantly surprised that these fit great. They are thin, lightweight, and stretchy- without being unflattering or too tight. They have about 5” inseam, so they’re long enough to be modest without being Bermuda shorts. I like the roomy pockets! Usually, ladies’ shorts go extra skimpy on pocket space, so it’s nice to know I’ll have a place to put things. Worthy of noting- size up. The material is thin and doesn’t hide your shape, or the shape of whatever is in your pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by morgsfsu from The Perfect Southern Short These shorts are fantastic. I love in the deep south where the humidity and heat are overwhelming at times. These fit well, dont wrinkle much, keep you cool and wards off moisture. Very highly recommend, but I would size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vhindel from Love these shorts I am a 3x cancer suviver - in one year - stage 4. I have now been clear for 5 1/2 years. My husband & I are celebrating our 25th Anniversary and we are going to do the Mississippi River Cruise and will be on the paddle boat for 22 days. I didn’t have any clothes to fit me....as I seldom got dressed and was “very” depressed. So, new wardrobe—wasn’t into it, but wanted to go. I bought these shorts, blouses, pants and a shirt jacket from Columbia —I’m so sooo pleased, fit perfect! I cannot thank you enough for these quality clothes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ljslager28 from Shorts that work for the summer This pair of shorts works perfectly for the active summer lifestyle. I wore them for golf recently and found the functionality of the pockets along with the breathability of the fabric was a perfect combination!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joanne7 from Great shorts! The shorts are very breathable in hot weather, keeping me cool and comfortable. I was thrilled to find them in a fabric free of Lycra and Spandex, as I have a sensitivity to both. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by DW5520 from Love Love love these shorts, so I ordered another pair in another color. Length is good for hiking. Not too long, not too short. I do wish at least one pocket had someway of securing a phone in it as they are just not quite deep enough and I was worried about it falling out, but I do love the shorts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by travelnut from just as good as the pants I bought these because I love the pants so much, and the shorts are the exact same. Soft and lightweight while remaining stylish. The length is pretty good not short-shorts but not down to knee either, I would say it hits 1/3 of the way down my thigh. I had to size up in the shorts as well, usually an 8 but had to buy 10's so that they would be comfortable and non-restrictive around the thighs (and no squishing my thigh when sitting!). This means I need a belt for the waist but that doesn't matter to me! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Erin47 from My favorite work shorts I am a zookeeper and work outside in very hot temperatures. It is very difficult to find shorts that are functional, comfortable, and look good. These shorts meet all of that criteria. There is a slight stretch to them which adds to their comfortability. Deep pockets come in handy. It is so nice to finally have functional work shorts that make me look and feel good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bobbiejansew from Womens pilsner peak short Bought these for hiking, knowing they do not have zipper pockets, but the pockets are deep if you need to use them when not hiking. the fabric is very comfortable and they wash and wear well. Am 5'7" weigh 127 and the 6 fits comfortably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AmyFiala from Best short I've ever purchased! I have the worst time finding shorts and jeans. They will always fit my seat and thighs, but then I have a HUGE gap of extra material at my lower back. These had a bit of extra cloth at the waist, but worked for me. Length was not too long not too short. Sturdy but lightweight/wicking at the same time. My Athleta shorts are nothing compared to these. Thank you Columbia for making a terrific product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by KBrew from Try if you have low waist-hip ratio Typically I wear size 8 petite and I have a large waist-hip ratio with waist 29-30 and hips 40. Compared to the size chart measurements, Pilsner Peak shorts are a good 2" larger in the waist IRL. These fit similarly to Saturday Trail shorts. Arch Cape III (4" shorts inseam) fit me better due to elastic in back of waist. Great quality just like another pair of Columbia shorts I've had for probably 10 years now, just didn't work for me personally. I would recommend to women with lower waist-hip ratio.
