Rated 5 out of 5 by Whoppo from Great product My wife has a pair and loves them. I bought another pair for her and for my sister, who is very picky about her shorts. I gave them to her for her birthday, a bold move I know. It turns out that she loves them. She says they fit perfectly and stay true to their form when she is active in them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sbeth from Runs big, but is pretty great I bought these to have some loose fitting shorts for vacation. I like these, even though they run a little big. They dry quick, breathe well, and have pockets. I've bought a couple in different colors now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BT23 from Runs small These shorts are super cool, but the small was way too baggy for me. I'm 5'6", 120lbs. I usually wear a small in Columbia shorts, but I'm returning the small for an extra small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KathleenSz from Love these! I love these shorts. They are light weight & very comfortable. My phone fits in the back pocket. My only complaint is they are a little big. I'm 5' 2" , 110 lbs. I bought the small but I think I should have gone with extra small. So they are a touch baggy and I have to roll over the waist. Even with that, they are awesome shorts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sape from Love these shorts! I ordered the sandy river shorts for the lake this summer, and I love them! They are true to size and dry really quick! The length was perfect, not too short and not too long. These shorts are super light weight and do not take up much space in a pack. I highly recommend this product like I do every Columbia product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DebH from Loved these shorts I bought 2 pairs of these shorts to wear on a 3 week trip. They turned out to be the shorts I wore most of the time. Comfortable, cool and dry quickly. The secure back pocket was great for carrying money or cards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Krystin from Great Shorts Love the length of these shorts! They are light, comfortable, and functional! I like the pockets and the color is true to the picture. The do run a little large so sizing down might be best (they do have a draw string to tighten them though). Overall very satisfied!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JordyM from Every pair of shorts has a story I love going on adventures. And what's worse than going on an adventure in the wrong shorts? Well, I have found that with these shorts, I'm prepared for anything. They are breathable and flexible, they are fashionable and athletic, and they are good for running or hiking or getting wet or going on a bike ride. I also love that they are two-toned. It makes them different than other shorts I have. They're a great pair of shorts and I wish I could order more of them! Can't wait to see what stories come from wearing these shorts.
