Columbia Women's Back Beauty™ Long Sport Short

Stretch properties in this flattering woven short provide comfort during dynamic activities and UPF 50 sun protection is built right in, but the real beauty is in the fit; the contoured waistband conforms to your curves and gives you perfect coverage where you need it most.

These shorts are comfy and dry all day in humid north east PA. they totally shocked me. Thought they would be hot and a sweat master total opposite. My bra was soaked could be wrung out yesterday after cleaning up yard and cutting grass, but my underwear were dry it was almost impossible to believe. I'll be stocking up on these. Quick to wash out be hand and hang to dry super quick. WOW thank u Columbia!!!

These shorts need 1 change. I agree with some of the reviews I read on Amazon. The rise is too short. This makes for a slightly "off" fit, and unflattering look. Please adjust the rise on these shorts. If you make that adjustment I'll buy a couple of more pairs. With the current design, I'll have to pass on buying another pair even though I like the other features of the shorts.
I do not recommend this product.

I bought 2 pair of these shorts, I am a true size 12 and I bought a large, the length is perfect and the waist fits perfect, I like the idea there are no zippers or snaps, I have hiked and also done my spin class wearing these, can't wait to continue doing my activities in them. They are perfect. I love them ! So happy !! Also the little hidden/side pocket is great for money, key or I.d.
I would recommend this product.

These shorts are my favorite pair of workout shorts. I have 2 pair. I love them because they are not ridiculously short like most of the shorts the younger girls wear, but are not "old lady" shorts either. They are also comfortable and the fabric allows for stretching with no binding anywhere.
I would recommend this product.

These shorts are very comfortable and fit well. If you are on the slim side, they definitely do fit a bit loose around the things/knees so have more of a masculine fit. I was thinking that they would fit more like a very short capri (slim) but that was not the case. Not a problem though as I still use them for running and hiking in the summer, just a different look.
Love the fit of the waistband and the good back coverage.
I would recommend this product.

I'm a very active mid 50's woman and these shorts are perfect for everyday use- gym, tennis, biking, etc... I particularly like the small pocket that is perfect for the Iphone.

I purchased my first pair about 8 months ago. I love the fit and how comfortable they are to wear. I do not like tight fitting clothes but I want something that fits, especially when I am being active. These are fitting and fit all areas around the waist. No gaps!!! Great for playing ball where you are moving around alot. I would recommend these shorts for any active activity.

Bought them for vacation but have already worn them for exercise and golf but plan to wear them for almost anything. Very comfortable. I got the XL and sizing said I should wear the L, but I do not like things that hug. I am tall and love the length.

I have had a really hard time finding this type of short in any stores, so I was happy to find you carried it. The sizing recommendation said it ran small, and it does, so I appreciated that notation before I ordered.

I like these shorts and they are a great fit. HOWEVER, I thought they were gray when I ordered them online. Columbia has the color listed as GRAVEL. Well, these shorts are actually a green color. I would describe as 'Army Green'. Most of my coordinating hiking and workout clothing is gray or black. These do not go with any shirts/ jackets I have, so I returned them. If if wasn't for the green color, I would have kept them.
I would recommend this product.

Love these shorts! I am very pear shaped so it's hard to find bottoms that aren't too tight in the legs and yet don't gap in the waist especially when sitting. These shorts fit the bill and will be great for all my casual activities this Spring and Summer.

The back beauty shorts would be appropriate as work out shorts or for shopping -- very versatile. They are super comfortable - especially in the waist.
I ordered the gravel color expecting a grayish/tanish color. Much to my surprize, gravel as a color means green! Think army dress uniform green. Very nice...just not what I expected.
I would recommend this product.
