Purchased womans arch cape shorts. I was very tentative because I have not been able to find shorts I liked for about 20 years. I have a very short inseam 29" so most shorts look awful on me. I was thrilled with these shorts, 4" length is perfect, the fit was awesome and for once they did not have a two inch zipper, they are a normal height zipper. The material is light weight, several pockets, perfect for golf, and look beautiful with a nice top for a dressier look. EXTREMELY SATIFIED! Bought them in all colors offered.
I would recommend this product.

I bought these shorts to wear fishing/snorkeling and am glad I got the 6" length. The legs are a little tight for me, I wish they had side slits, but overall am happy with the material and fit.
I would recommend this product.

The waist fit fine, but the legs of the shorts were so baggy that they looked ridiculous and I have pretty thick muscular thighs for my height. I have had luck with other shorts made by Columbia, but I will be returning this item.
I do not recommend this product.

Zippered pocket is a little small, maybe credit card size. Glad I ordered the longer (6" inseam) as they were shorter than I thought they would be.
Typically I would wear a size 4, but need to order a 6 in Columbia as they run smaller.
Love the fabric, quick drying.
I would recommend this product.
