Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Short This short is well made. I like the length. It would be perfect if the material was softer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like the camouflage look and texture I really the camouflage pattern, as well as the color. I also like the texture of the shorts, feels tough, strong material. And, I also like that this pair of shorts has deep pockets, so that nothing falls out while I wear these shorts to work or just on a leisure walk!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Womens Shorts Purchased these shorts for outdoor activities. Still wearing Columbia shorts that I purchased over 10 years ago, so Columbia is always the first place I go for outdoor wear. These shorts are very well made and feel very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow These pants are great. They look good, they fit well and they're waterproof! They're true to size (measure yourself before ordering and don't order something that's too small!). I also love the pockets - they're deep and can hold a lot of items without looking bulky. The fabric seems super durable but it's not heavy. It's at a great length that feels classy without being manly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good short Very heavy construction but otherwise nice. It comes with a belt. I wish I could remove the belt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shorts I purchased these shorts in the camo and love them. I decided to purchase them after I went white water rafting in hopes to wear them on my next trip. I think they will work perfect! I'm a size 10, but decided to order the large. They are a bit big, but I am ok with that. I would rather that instead of a little snug. So I would say they run true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marthie These shorts are super quality & comfortable! The fabric is very strong & sturdy yet not heavy; so they lay nicely. I don't normally like camouflage patterns but this is very subdued! I also got the navy/white stripe.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from wearable and comfortable fit; contrast stitching a little bright comfortable and roomy--These are a pull-on style (no zip/button), so check the sizing carefully and keep in mind that these should fit the largest measurement for that size (and be adjustable to fit the smallest measurement for that size), so if you fall between size ranges and decide to size up, it might be baggy. Material is heavier and sturdy, but still comfortable for everyday wear. There's also a nifty hidden pocket within one of the side pockets, and double rear pockets (which you can't really see in the picture) as well. I ordered the navy polka dot, which I like, but it is punctuated by the orange/red stitching (reinforcing the rear pocket openings) as well as a very visible Columbia logo stitched on the back to the left of the rear pockets (which seems large enough to be visible in the back-view pictures but for some reason does not). I can understand wanting to make your brand visible, but a subtler gray/white/blue would have been classier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these So I bought these on a whim online because I liked the polka dot print. Wearing them today and I really like them! They're comfy! The elastic waist works since there's an addition of the belt. The fabric feels like it'll last, not thin. And I love the length! I wish Columbia made more women's shorts in this length. Most times I'll head to the men's section to see what kind of swim trunks they have (because the women's are just so short), but the fit obviously isn't great there. The only thing I'd say, maybe a different color belt on these? Other than that, I love them! Oh and maybe different print options?
