Rated 5 out of 5 by Kathy808 from Perfect for paddling I've been looking for the perfect shorts for stand-up paddling, and this is it. Comfortable, quick-drying, and just the right amount of coverage. Pockets work perfectly for a waterproof camera. I wear these shorts over a bathing suit. Normally I'm a size 6, but I heeded the advice of others and bought a size 8. Perfect fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PJ74 from Great Fitting Short Had read a review that said these were sized small, but I did not find this to be the case. They are so comfortable I described them to my husband as feeling like a second skin. I love the way they move with me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kikiolani from Functional and good looking Purchased size 10 which fits properly but still allows plenty of room to stretch and be very active - like for climbing or hiking. The only available color in my size was a pale gray, "fossil", I think. I would have preferred a darker gray or maybe olive green or black and will look for those colors in the future. However, the pale gray does work well with almost any other color. This short has lots of great features: double button and zip closure, hidden zipper back pocket, and two deep front pockets with mesh at the bottom corner of each pocket so sand and water will flow through. I don't fish, but like most of the PFG clothing, it works for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Levon from High Style and High Quality I bought these shorts (navy size 4) at my favorite gear store and was so impressed with them that I came on the Columbia site to buy another pair. I purchased the cool gray and wish that they had more color choices. They do run a bit small but they are meant to be more fitted. They are really flattering and the perfect length. This is an example of a company getting their product just right with form and function!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elle88 from Great, lightweight, stretchy shorts Love these navy shorts! They are lightweight, very stretchy, and are very comfortable. I usually wear a 4, but Columbia usually runs a little smaller, so I bought a 6 and they are perfect. I am 5'7 and 109 lbs. I like them so much I thought about buying more colors. Perfect for walking or hiking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flygirl2 from My new favorites I love these shorts. They are light weight stretchy and comfortable. I use them to hike, fly fish, golf and just wear around the house. They run a little small, buy one size up. I hope Columbia comes out with more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PickleballBarb from A Great Pair of Shorts! As we all know, finding a good fitting pair of shorts or pants is not easy to do. However, I highly recommend the Ultimate Catch Short for its superb fit, comfort, and styling. There is nothing I would change about this short because it perfectly fits my needs. Although it is touted as a short for fishing (how many women actually go fishing???), it works wonderfully for my purpose of playing a sport called pickle ball. The shorts are incredibly light weight, are totally flexible, fit beautifully and have pockets which can accommodate a pickle ball, but which do not bag out in the least bit if you don't want to use them for carrying something. It is the stretchy fabric which is the key to the fit and the comfort of the shorts as well as the ability to actually use the pockets for something other than decoration. I already have another woman player who is pestering me to know how to locate these shorts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Franboop from Extaordinarily comfortable I wore these for two steamy, hot, and afternoon wet weekends at Disney in Florida, and they were the most comfortable and dry shorts I have ever worn in the hot Florida summer. The stretch, anti-stain, and water repellent features worked as advertised while the shorts were so lightweight you didn't feel hot and bothered. The downside is that the comfy fabric is thin, without much body, so it tends to ride up a little. Not bad, and not noticeable except to the wearer (or so my husband said), but the reason for the quality downgrade to 4 stars. Sizing was a little small, but not a whole size small. I purchased two sizes, could fit into both, and opted to keep the larger size. Trim but not tight fit (not at all baggy) and longer leg length were just what I was looking for. Liked them so much I ordered more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gingin from Best fitting shorts I have very owned! I just bought these shorts in cool grey - and wow! They are very cool! They feel like butter and fit like a glove - not tight, not baggy. Just right! the fabric is a dream - very light and stretchy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rockin12 from Got it right Best pair of shorts I have ever owned. Elastic inside the shorts and fits great. Got 1 size larger and they fit perfect. Inseam is just right for my long legs. Material is so lightweight that you hardly know you have them on. I will definitely be ordering more in different colors.
