Rated 5 out of 5 by from The pockets have zippers Great product, made well and comfy with an elastic waistband. They were a bit large on me, so I wished that the elastic was tighter to begin with. (I'm 100 lbs, 5'4") The back pocket has some velcro to keep it closed, which is nice, and the two side pockets have zippers. The zipper pockets are great, depending on what you plan to use the shorts for, but I personally didn't care for the zippered pockets. The pockets feel like breathable mesh on the inside, and they are a bit smaller than you would expect. I'm honestly returning them because I need a much tighter waistband, especially if I want to put something in the pockets. The waistband has the type of elastic that will keep them on, but only if you fit the shorts well to begin with. I'm one that has always struggled to find things that fit my waist, so though they're big on me (which I expected), they seem to be normal sized in general. I might check the girls section to see if they have the same shorts, as the women's XS is almost equivalent to a M or L in girl's clothing, so I should be able to get a smaller size. The "Tuscan" color is just as I expected and isn't too bright.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the Usual Columbia Experience These shorts seemed tight (usually Columbia bottoms are plenty roomy for me) and thus too revealing in the crotch. But they were wrinkled so though perhaps I should iron them first to be sure before returning. I did and a medium iron promptly made a burn mark and literally the beginnings of a tear in the fabric. I tried washing in cold water hoping the mark came out which it did slightly, but the tear is still there - which I can sew of course but still -- not the way to start out with new shorts. So now can't return them because tags are off but they are not flattering because too small. Honestly never had such an experience with Columbia products before. :-(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Everyday! I love these shorts! As a mom on the go and outdoor lover I can wear these shorts all day, everyday. The elastic waist is so comfortable and doesn’t dig into your skin. I wear these shorts everywhere from dropping the kids off at school to hiking a great overlook. Don’t think twice about purchasing these shorts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great material for summer and POCKETS I have a high waist so "traditional" hiking pants and shorts tend to not fit me so well. (If I pull them up to my natural waist the crotch will be extremely tight and uncomfortable.) However, the Wander More shorts fit great and feel so comfortable. Very lightweight material and deep pockets. I am 5'7"/175lbs and normally wear 14/XL in Columbia bottoms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wander More Short These shorts fit perfectly and are extremely flattering. Size M (5'4" tall/135lbs). I love they have useable sized pockets with zippers. Would definitely order again.
