Women’s Saturday Trail™ Long Short is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice short, VERY small Loved the feel of these, but after ordering my regular size (4) returning it for a 6 - it was still much too snug. While fabric allowed for movement the pockets pulled open and looked too tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features They do run a little small. I can usually wear size 6, but ordered size 8. They fit perfectly. I like the functionality of these shorts. I can wear them to work with a nice top because of the length & then I can put a more casual top on & hit the trail, or go out to run errands and things.Easy care, Wash, wear, dry quickly. Great for travel. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light weight for those hot days! I love how light weight they are. Perfect length. Great pockets, which is why I bought them. But the waist band has no elasticity and therefore is not as comfortable as their other shorts that have elastic in the waste band. So instead of buying my usual size 6 I had to buy a size 8 to get the comfort in the waistband. But I love everything from Columbia

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MarieMM Light weight and easy to move in. I’m 5’2, 120 lbs. these fit great, but wouldn’t want them any smaller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent shorts These are great shorts. They are high quality constructed. They have a very comfortable waist band with metal buttons to snap them closed. Many other bottoms use small buttons that eventually come loose and fall off. I get compliments on these and people want to know what brand they are. The length is perfect. I can wear them while doing outdoor activitiss but these can also be worn in just about any casual setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts Great shorts! My friends been taking about a pair she’s had for years about how they held up great. I purchased 2 pairs online and 2 pairs in store. I love the choice in length and fit. Really nice quality while sitting in rocks on bank of river, picinicing in the desert, or running about town.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from too small I have several pair of Columbia shorts. I wear a size 4 in other columbia shorts and other brands. (5'6" 128 lbs) These long shorts were to tight all over to be comfortable. Its hard to understand why the same size in different shorts can be so different for the same company. Seems like Columbia sizes are all over the place. I am very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Columbia trail shorts I love my Columbia trail shorts. The fit is great. I would wear them everyday if I didn’t have to wash them. I highly recommended them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these shorts! The shirts are great! Very high quality. I usually wear between a 6 and 8 in most pants, I bought a size 8 and they are a little loose. I usually have a hard time finding any bottoms that look good on me, but I have had a few compliments on these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit! Everything about these shorts I love! They fit great! I'm a size 10 the sizing chart was perfect! I would definitely recommend these shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Shorts These shorts are super comfortable and light weight. They are the perfect waking short, and the fit is perfect!
Date published: 2018-02-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very versatile These shorts are so comfortable. They have a little stretch in the right places. Not too thin either. I bought both lengths but I prefer the 10". This is that situation where you buy more than one in different colors because they are so comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Shorts I wear these shorts to work at the beach during the summer months. They have the perfect balance of being lightweight yet durable and excellent pocket space. Not to mention that the length is perfect (10"). I have them in Cypress, India Ink, and Grill and just noticed they are now in black...so here I go buying another pair for next summer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good looking & comfortable! I really like the fit of these shorts. I guess these would be considered mid-rise - the top hits just below my waist. The legs are slim which gives a nice line. The fabric is lightweight and has some stretch so very comfortable to wear, plus they should be great for travel since they pack pretty small and would be easy to wash & dry while traveling. I wear either a 6 or an 8 in Columbia products. In this short, the 8 fits me. I've washed & worn them several times with no issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super comfy well fitting shorts just wish they were a tad more durable I love the way that these shorts fit..... very flattering and the color is awesome. They are very comfortable stretchy fabric that I love but they are on the thinner side (which is nice since they are nice and cool) but they also snag easily so they aren't as durable as I'd hoped. Still when you get these on an end of summer sale they are great shorts for the price. I love the fixed waist (no stretch) but you do have to get the right size because of this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts for warm weather activities I have several pairs of these shorts. They are cool, move when I run and dry quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from shorts shorts are nice... a little small, but still fit ok. I like the material and they are comfortable

Rated 4 out of 5 by from size not accurate Great shorts if they fit right. However, the sizing is inconsistent between trail shorts. The same size could be slightly loose or could be slightly tight. I ordered a second pair in the same size as the shorts I have but the 2nd pr is almost an inch smaller in the waist. They are not true to size.
Date published: 2017-06-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just a tiny bit too short The shorts are good quality and everything you would expect from Columbia, but the length is just an inch to short for me. I have since found some with an 11 inch inseam that are just the right length. Am not planning on returning these because they do fit and will come in handy when working in the yard. I am 5'2", weigh 177 and carry weight in hips and thighs. I bought a size 16 regular (not plus size) and they fit fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shorts! I wear a size 6 in these shorts and they are a bit snug, but the 8 was too large. I'm 5'6" 130 lbs and wear a size 4-6 or 28 in most other brands. Great shorts, excellent fabric for outdoor use or hiking, flattering cut with narrower fit through the thigh for a more feminine look. I prefer the 12" inseam, and appreciate that the fit looks great in a not "too - short" short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shorts! Love the material of these shorts. Keeps you cool on a hike. I like the choice of a longer length. I also like that they make your butt look good! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I had to return them They ran too small for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good shorts! I already had the plaid version and love the fit. I was hoping these could take the place of having khaki shorts, but i think the fabric is a little too thin for that. No worries - I will get a lot of weekend use out of these still. I love the form and function of these shorts, but my next pair will likely be a darker color as I tend to get messy when wearing sport shorts like these when camping and hiking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality I'm a 66 and live on the Intracoastal in north Miami. I walk every morning and need shorts that are light weight, dries fast and stretch material for comfort. These shorts fit the bill. They wash without shrinking and because of the great fabric need no ironing. Love them and highly recommend them!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice product line I liked the capris pants so much I bought these shorts and am not disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from golf gear The material,and fit makes these so functional! I started with the pants,and used them when it was too cool to wear shorts golfing,or even biking. I went up 2 sizes in the shorts to allow for my athletic build,and moition. Bring on the rain, these things dry quickly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastically comfortable Love, love, love these shorts. The fit is perfect and the fabric moves with you, no constricting or bunching up. Good for wearing on my kayak as they are very lightweight, dry quickly and have UV protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and perfect! This is my second pair of these shorts. They look great in town and are perfect for a hike or the outdoors as well. Fabric is lightweight and has some stretch to it. Good length for coverage yet range of motion. I ordered a size larger (usually a 10 but ordered a 12 in these) because I don't really like a tight fitting short and wanted to utilize the pockets. (If you like a close fit, then order your normal size.) I love all the pockets for keys, phone, etc. Washes well and dries quickly. I've washed them in the sink and after rolling in a towel and hanging up they are ready the next day. Perfect for my traveling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too short on my leg Love this shirt. Fit perfect. Leg length for me, too short
Date published: 2017-04-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fitting shorts I can sometimes be hard to fit due to lack of waistline. While I can sometimes wear a 10, these shorts in a size 12 are absolutely perfect for me! They are well made and very light, so I know they will dry quickly when they get wet while I'm playing with my dog at the beach!
Date published: 2017-04-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mountain Top to City These shorts feel weightless and the fabric moves with you. Although I found them slightly tight in leg, bumping up to next size worked great. Every product by Columbia makes you want to "get outside". I'm 5'2 ". 125 #.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trail, hiking and biking pants! I've had Saturday Trail pants with the elastic at the knee, 18" length and also the roll-up pants for years for vacation trips to hike and trail ride. Now I am retired and have taken up biking and decided to try these too. They are very comfy, stretchy but do run a bit small. Remember to wash them inside out and try not to wash with cotton, especially towels, that will produce a lot of lint as the shorts pick up lint and pill. I actually shaved a pair with a disposable razor which worked fine, if they do pill on you. So, enjoy and watch for sales.
