Love the lightweight material - and very comforable - the fit was perfect - I haven't washed them yet - but I can see that they will be quick drying.
I would recommend this product.

I normally wear a size 8, so I bought a size 8 in these shorts and I couldn't even zip them up. They are very cute, but I feel like I would have to buy at least a 12 in order for them to fit. I do not recommend if you do not like buying 2 sizes up your normal size.
I do not recommend this product.

Nice outdoor shorts, the material is much thinner than I expected which will be great for camping , swimming or summer time. I followed the other reviews and ordered 1 size bigger than I normally wear. They fit just fine and are comfortable too.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased the 10 inch short. This short is very light. I took this product on a 2 mile hike on a 90 degree humid Minnesota day and it was perfect. It was s lightweight that I put a digital camera in the pocket and hardly noticed. After the hike I proceeded to wash my two 50 pound dogs while still wearing the shorts. They were saturated but dried quickly enough, as I thought that they would, as I hoped that they would. I proceeded to clean my house in them (without bleach of course) and they were perfect. It was the perfect everyday hiking/working/cleaning short that I had hoped it would be. I bought two of them in two different colors.
I would recommend this product.

Wore these shorts on the John Muir Trail this summer, they were very comfortable: light, quick drying material, good cut for freedom of movement when climbing, good length. Also lots of convenient pockets. I just bought another pair in a different color.
I would recommend this product.

I like that these shorts fit my outdoor needs but still have a feminine look to them. Most outdoor shorts tend to be too boxy & boyish for me.

I ordered two pair of these shorts in 10" inseam (wishing the 13" inseam would become available again). The shorts are everything I expect of the quality and workmanship associated with Columbia brand clothing... and I am very pleased to have scored two pair. Although other reviews reflect these run smaller than usual, I found they fit true to size and maybe a little larger. Pretty please consider bringing these back in the 13" inseam.
I would recommend this product.

As other reviewers have stated it does run a little small. I would order one size larger in the future if said runs a little small.
