These are my new favorite shorts. I got the mint green color and I get compliments on them every time I wear them.
They are very comfortable and the material is more like a cotton than a "fishing short". I am definitely going to order more in different colors. Not too short, not too long. Just perfect.
I would recommend this product.

Order the blue & pink and love the colors! They are true to size. Love the inseam - it allows for movement without being to short. Washed/dried nicely.
I would recommend this product.

I purchase a few pairs of this style in different colors. These are great shorts. I purchased the 6 in inseam. They are very comfy. The pockets are deep enough. They can be worn with a casual tshirt or dress them up with a nice top.
Great shorts!
I would recommend this product.

I ordered these shorts in black, purple and white. They are extremely comfortable and look good on. I'm keeping the black and purple ones. The white ones will go back since they aren't lined and so you can see the pockets and underwear (even with beige on).
I would recommend this product.

I love these shorts. They are not too flarey like most shorts I try on. They are not too tight either. Just the right amount of fabric around the leg and there are 2 different options for length. Perfect! Don't change them, PLEASE!
I would recommend this product.

I ordered a size up after reading that these shorts run a little large (I see that reviewers now believe that they fit slightly small), but they ended up being too big for me. That's why I believe these are more true to size. These shorts are well made and perfect for semi-active summer days or for lounging around. They are soft, and I love the purple color. The biggest selling point? The 6-inch inseam option. For some reason, most retailers sell shorts with 4-inch or 7-inch inseams but nothing in between. Living in an area where the weather is nice year-round, I know that I will get a lot of use out of these shorts. I trust the Columbia brand and its quality in clothing.
I would recommend this product.

I bought these shorts to wear to a croquet party in August, so have yet to wear them. I have tried them on and am very satisfied with the fit. I am 5'8" and weigh in today at 125.4. Big waist, zero butt. Size 8 fits wonderfully. One reason I love Columbia is that their womens' bottoms are NOT made for huge hips/butts and tiny waists.
I would recommend this product.

I got these in black and khaki. They fit very nicely. They do run a little small. I'm usually an 8 at The Limited and WHBM, but I got these in a 10 and they fit perfectly. The length is great for women who don't want "granny" shorts, but also don't want to let it all hang out. The only downside is that they wrinkle pretty significantly. Be prepared to iron them if you don't like looking like you tumbled out of bed.
I would recommend this product.

I have the hardest time finding bottoms that fit me well due to my large booty and smaller waist. But the V cut in the back helps eliminate the gap that I'm used to dealing with in the back of my bottoms. I plan to buy one of each of their bottoms!
I would recommend this product.

I bought one pair and loved them so much that I bought two more. I bought them one sale so that was an added plus. The shorts are great! They are made well and provide enough durability and room to work in.

The shorts are fine but good golly that color is not what I was expecting. I wanted like a sort of paprika red, something lively but wearable, but the red hibiscus color is borderline neon. Going to have to make a gift out of these for someone because I just don't really like the idea of my hind quarters being visible from 20 yards.
