I can barely believe I'm writing about how much I love a pair of shorts ... but I do! They fit perfectly, are very flattering and are almost weightless. I wear them both for walking/hiking and for casual everyday wear. They are so comfortable and cool it is a positive pleasure to wear them. I'm not usually someone who wears plaid, so I would love it if the shorts were available in non-plaid options. I wouldn't even have tried them on in the store because of the plaid, but a sales associate suggested them, and I'm so glad she did. Highly recommended!
I would recommend this product.

I really wanted these shorts to work. I ordered up a size (from a 4 to a 6) as reviewers suggested. The waist fit fine, but the rise was much too short and the legs too narrow. I sent them back the next day. Disappointed.
I do not recommend this product.

This is a very light weighted pair of shorts. Feels great and super comfy!! Because of the plaid design (I ordered the Grill), somehow the white plaid cutting seems to stand out more on my right thigh than on the left thigh. Overall very nice shorts.
I would recommend this product.

Great shorts. Bought 2 pair last year and just added a 3rd. I'm a but curvy but like a close fitting short. They skim the body but have enough stretch so that you almost can't tell they are on. I'm usually a 4-6. I ordered these in a 6 and very happy with them. They are fitted but not tight. Great multi-purpose short. I wear them running errands, out for casual lunch, hiking, to sporting events. Wish them came in other solid, bright colors!

I love that these shorts are cotton. It's nice to have some cotton options. They are cute and very slimming. . It seems the cut is a little slimmer than other models of shorts in the upper thigh area. My pockets open up a little funny on both sides because they are a little too slim for me whereas normally I haven't had this problem with other Columbia shorts of the same style. Otherwise they feel and look great.
I would recommend this product.

I bought one of these a couple of years ago and they were great. So, I just purchased a second pair. They're stretchy and comfy. Great for short day hikes, and rock climbing!

These shorts are perfect if you are active in hot weather but want to look a little stylish. They are very lightweight and stretchy and they dry very quickly. I bought them in every color and my husband is jealous. I bought a similar pair about three years ago and they are very, very durable. I am 5'9" 130lbs and the length of the legs and the rise is perfect. I don't know what everyone is talking about the sizing being off. I've always worn a size 8 in Columbia shorts and the 8 still fits exactly the same.
I would recommend this product.

Figure flattering, skims the hips and thighs. Button fly is superior in quality to Columbia's pull on shorts. Waist band lies flat and the extra button to the left of inside waist helps keep band even. Cut runs full but extra room might be appreciated. This short can go easily from the trail to a casual evening out. Grill looks great with a white T.
I would recommend this product.

Love everything about them except the waist is a bit high for me. Would have preferred a more modern "lowrider" fit. Still love them regardless just have to wear with a longer shirt.

These shorts are near perfect! Just as other reviewers have said you do need to order a size bigger than you usually wear. I'm normally size 14 and I ordered a size 16. Other than that these shorts are wonderful, comfortable, flattering and lightweight. Looking forward to warmer weather now that I have some nice shorts to wear.
I would recommend this product.

I have been buying Columbia for a number of years - although the cost is a little high the quality and wear are well worth the money. I have some shorts from as far back as five years ago and still today when I wear them people will remark on my "new" shorts. They are amazed at how old they are.
Keep up the good work.
I would recommend this product.

I bought my usual size. Usually I look silly in hiking sorts because my legs are thin. The thinner long leg on these look great on me. Breathable and comfortable even in hot weather and enough stretch for even a steep climb. I'm buying more!

I love plaid shorts and these are no exception. Bought them a size larger as other reviewers recommended and they were right on. A size larger fits perfectly if you have a round butt. I think the lower yoke in the back is really flattering and no gap - love that!

They fit me perfectly. Not to tight or loose anywhere and very breathable when I am hiking. Going to eventually buy all colors. High quality shorts for sure. I thought plaid would make me look heavier but they do the opposite. Pleasantly surprised. I agree with buying a size up. It's just a number ladies!

I bought them a size up since I have athletic legs and didn't want any constriction. They are very comfortable and great in hot weather. I got them in three colors, and I get complements every time I wear them.

These shorts are extremely well-made and have little details, which add to their look. I usually wear a 6 but bought an 8 due to other reviews, and they fit perfectly. Except for ordering a size larger, these shorts are perfect and my favorite.
