I had been looking all over the place for comfy longer length shorts, and then I found these guys! They are great! Slightly stretchy, but not so much that they're all baggy by the end of the day, nice colors and plaids, and they fit great. My only regret is not having gotten more colors before they sold out. I know what shorts I'll be buying next year!!!
I would recommend this product.

I love the Saturday Trail shorts. The fit is excellent but they don't make them in solid colors. I needed a solid color short so I ordered the Copper Ridge, hoping it would fit as well as the Saturday Trail but they don't. They are tighter in the butt and shorter in the rise than the ST so if you are over 5'5" they may not fit you well. I kept them because it was hot and humid and I needed some solid color shorts to wear but I wouldn't order them again.
Columbia, please make the Saturday Trail in solid colors!!!
I would recommend this product.

Really like these shorts, only I once again followed the detail advice and ordered a size larger than I normally wear. I wear a 10, but ordered a 12 and they are way too big in the waist and hips. Fortunately, a little tailoring and they are just fine. So, I recommend you order your regular size and don't up-size! Love the style and versatility of these shorts.
I would recommend this product.

Based on other reviews I ordered my size (8- which is what I've always worn with this brand) and the next size up. I cannot see that the sizing has changed. As always the 8 fit perfectly. I love the cut of the shorts and the rise is not too high or too low. Perfect shorts for hot weather!
I would recommend this product.

These shorts are worth the price! They do run small so order the next size up. I love them! I tried purchasing similar shorts from some other companies but they did not fit as well as these shorts so I sent the others back and bought more of these. Very flattering even if you are on the heavier side.
I would recommend this product.

I found the quality of the product to be good, but sent back due to small fit. If you are a woman with curves these wont be comfortable. Waist fit was fine, but hips were straight- no room for curves
I would recommend this product.

These shorts were not only terrific looking, they fit extremely well (not too low like alot of shorts/pants these days) and the fabric feels and washes great.

I normally wear a size two, so when I tried on the four I was surprised that they were skin tight. I would buy these at least two sizes larger than normal. Otherwise, really cute.

I am very satisfied of your products in general. The quality is very good and the feeling of the texture on the body. Additionaly they fit perfect.
If there was a way to buy more things I would do that.
Unfortunately, I was disapointed of the delivery service of bongo international which was extremely high so that the whole delivery costed me approximately 300$(with the greek vats).
I would recommend this product.

These run true to size at least they did for me and I wear a 12. They are comfy and look great. I buy several pair of Columbia plaid shorts every year and these didnt let me down.

Just what I was expecting, in fit and material. I wish the waistband was a little heavier to help keep its shape, but this is solved with a belt. Comfy and breathable, would definitely recommend.

Columbia needs to review there sizing. These are great shorts, but I need one size bigger. I have a pair of Columbia shorts that I wear almost everyday (from last year). These are similar cut and fit, but apparantly I need a size 14. I've even lost weight from last summer!
I do not recommend this product.
