Women's Saturday Trail™ II Plaid Short is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the pattern but... I love the pattern of these and the material is amazing, I own all colors of the anytime outdoor long shorts in the same material. The only problem with these....they run REALLY small. I ordered a size up from the long shorts which are actually a little loose and these in a size bigger won't button. Really debating keeping them and finding a cloth belt to cover the lack of buttoning because I really like them and they don't have a bigger size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long wear Any Columbia shorts I have gotten over the years in a quick dry material have lasted forever. They fit great They have the 12" length I like and they are cool and comfortable. Please keep making the 12" length the stores don't carry them I can only find them on line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fan of these shorts for 3 years I like the longish length with still a contoured cut. The fit is perfect for normal proportions. The fabric and styling is fun. I have bought at least one pair of these shorts in the two years past and stocked up on new colors this year; was very glad to see them still in the product line. One disappointment: whereas size 4 fit perfectly in the past, this year I had to return for size 2. I have NOT lost weight, so I think the cut has just changed that much. Something for shoppers to be aware of.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a little small everything i order from columbia, i order a size 2, these shorts are a bit snug around the waist, and they are not stretchy, so theres not much give. I do like the shorts though. Not sure how a 4 would fit, so i'm keeping them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Shorts! These shorts are perfect for outdoor activities like hiking or something more upscale as well. I have worn them to work and they look great. Love the unusual pockets and longer styling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's saturday trail shorts, plaid This is the 3rd pair I have bought! now have them in 3 colors, they all fit great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect shorts Perfect length and slim enough so they don't look like boy shorts but they aren't skin tight. I ordered a size up from my normal size and they are perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Snug I have three pairs of the Saturday Trail Knee pants which I love. They are trim but stretchy and super comfortable. I ordered a pair of the plaid long shorts in the same size, expecting the same comfortable fit. They are quite attractive and I get compliments, but they do not give like the knee pants. Sitting in them is NOT fun! Very snug around the thighs and rise. I should have read the reviews first and ordered a size larger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shorts! Perfect for golf attire. Pockets are deep and functional.
Date published: 2017-06-11
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Material Material is not as stretchy as previously purchased shorts. It makes them the extra snug, and not so comfortable. They fit there's just no Lycra or stretch to them at all. I like Columbia shorts for the comfort. Maybe I should've returned them. Order a size up maybe. Not my favorite pair of shorts for the price!
Date published: 2017-05-28
Rated 3 out of 5 by from They don't make them like they used to I loved these shorts when they first came out and ordered a pair in every color. Happily, as the fabric used the last couple of years is not of the original quality. Still, I have ordered a pair each summer but the newer shorts are made of a less durable, shiny, cheaper fabric and wear out much more quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I don't golf, but if I did, I would golf in these Great length-just past knee. They DO run small. I recommend one size up bc these are truly skinny shorts. Breathable, quick drying and great for upcoming Spring

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite shorts! I love these shorts SO much. They are so cute on and they are super comfortable. They are not heavy or restrictive, but not so light weight that they feel cheap. I wear them around town and even ride my bike in them! Love that moisture wicking! Get these shorts! They are the best!
Date published: 2016-06-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! They do run very small, I usually wear a size 12, but had to get a 16 because they do not stretch. There is no give in them but they are still my favourite shorts. Once you find a comfortable size, (don't look at the size to avoid getting upset) you will love them. I am a curvy girl but once I found the size that fit me I couldn't say no so I bought two pairs. You will not regret buying these shorts. I wish I had a pair for everyday. They are the most comfortable, stylish shorts you will ever own. They even have real sized pockets that don't look ridiculous when you put stuff in them, minimal pocket bulging (also depends on what you put in your pockets). I am extremely happy with my purchase and will return again soon for more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have 7 Pairs I really like these shorts, have bought at least one pair 3 years running now. I wear them a lot, both for running around town, hiking, and travel. They do run a bit small though, if you are between sizes, for sure order up. They wash great and are pretty rugged. The side and back pockets are very handy. This season some of the colors are a bit loud for me - otherwise I'd probably buy one of each.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Poorly Sized I wear a size 4 in practically everything Columbia sells. I could hardly even get these shorts up to mid-thigh. I think it is probably because they are super short in the rise. I love the look. I ordered one of each color, and returned them all. Jumping up to a 6 didn't help either! These are simple mis-sized IMHO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Want these shorts in every color! Love everything about these shorts: -longer length to top of knees -tapered leg so the fit looks trim but doesn't feel tight -excellent quality fabric, thin so it is not hot but durable so can wear them all day without a wrinkle and it stretches with movement -cute plaid colors, the tropic pink is adorable and the black plaid is a classic -perfect for golf, hiking, or just casual wear -have received many compliments when I wear these shorts! Hard to find shorts with this great fit and great fabric and cool plaids, glad I finally did!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from cute but no go... I was really bummed that these fit snug and the material doesn't give at all. I have other Saturday pants that are great. These just didn't work for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable Everyday Shorts I love these! Super comfy and great everyday shorts, weekends or weekdays these are one of my go to shorts. Would love to see other color options besides plaid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from long short that looks good This short was a little longer than I usually like but because of the taper of the leg they look great. Have worn quite a bit and they are looking great even after multiple washings.
Date published: 2015-04-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! These shorts run a tad small, so if you're in between sizes I'd recommend going up one size. Great longer walking shorts though, just what I was looking for.
Date published: 2015-03-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Women's Saturday Trail shorts I wanted longer, walking shorts and these met my expectations. I did order a full size larger, as recommended by another reviewer, and they fit perfectly.
Date published: 2015-02-28
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not quite the same as the capris I LUUUV the Saturday Trail capris. These, not so much. I expected they would be cut the same, but they're slightly shorter in the crotch, so they ended up being slightly hipster on me, and because they hit me below my natural waist, the waistband was too tight. I bought two pairs (in different colors), and they were both too short-waisted, so it wasn't a fluke.
Date published: 2014-07-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from very flattering cut Medium to low rise but cut generously enough to not be self conscious about my rear. Long enough to cover my thighs but not my knees. Was a bit doubful at first but very glad I tried these on. Size 8 worked well for 5'5'' 132 pounds moderate pear shape. Yay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love these These shorts run true to size in Columbia sizes. They are comfortable with the stretch in them. I'm thinking of ordering another color.
