There is a lot to love about these shorts! The fabric is super soft, they are very comfortable/breathable, the length is perfect and they look great on. I purchased in the Grill, Fossil & India Ink colors. I wish they came in black too.. maybe in the future? Regardless, these are great shorts and I highly recommend them.
I would recommend this product.

I desperately needed shorts that could work for casual wear as well as hiking and these fit the bill. They are made of nylon/elastane, which is perfectly durable and stretchy for hiking, and the fit and construction allows it to transition for casual wear. I got the india ink color, so that they can fill in for denim shorts.
I would recommend this product.

Love these shorts! Wear them for everyday life, exercise, walks, hikes, bike rides, house work, washing the car, gardening. My cell phone fits in the back pocket for pedometer readings, my house keys and pepper spray fit in the front pockets for safety and convenience on long walks/hikes. They fit perfectly, no gaps, not too tight, room to move. The fabric is wrinkle free & dries quickly so they are great for travel as well.
I would recommend this product.

This pair of shorts is super functional, as well as comfortable as well as fashionable. I can wear them hiking or to the mall and still look put together. I went on my first hike in them and knew that I would need them in more colors. These shorts are breathable, flexible, and did not bunch or ride up like a lot of other shorts. I usually hike in athletic/running shorts, and these were much more comfortable.
I would recommend this product.

I bought these shorts for a multi-day river/camping trip. I brought several pairs of shorts on our trip and ended up wearing these everyday. They're quick drying and have a tailored cut but still really comfortable, and they don't wrinkle.

These shorts are as close to perfect as I've found. The rise is not too high or too low. The fabric is amazing-so soft, so stretchy, so light-but definitely shows wear after a year of wearing 3x a week. The pockets are actually large enough to put things into (thank you Columbia for making women's clothing with functional pockets). I loved my first grill-colored pair nearly to death and just today bought a green pair to replace them. For size reference, I'm 5'4", 130lbs with curves and a 4 is perfect. Please keep making them!
I would recommend this product.

weather you are going out on a boat ride, fishing, going to the beach, or just going to lunch, this is the perfect short to wear. It is a quick dry material, so it is more of an outdoorsy pair of shorts.
I love to wear them walking down the beach. They have nice pockets to put shells in.
Very comfortable. I got two pairs, one in Coral and one in tan.
I would recommend this product.

My Columbia shorts have been excellent companions during this year of a 40 lb weight loss. Comfortable w enough stretch, tough in the brush, the right pockets. I look forward to trying a size 8 in my future in another few colors!

I was hesitant to pay the money for these shorts, but I'm so glad i did; they're well worth it. I hike 4-5 days a week, and they do everything they're supposed to. They stay dry, clean (clean as can be with little boys), and best of all, they don't ride up!
I read some reviews about size, and i wear an 8-10, and the 10's fit me perfectly. I'm very happy with my purchase, and am planning on buying more.
The color and style is great as well. I can wear them to the store, or out to lunch without looking like a schlub.
Well done Columbia. Keep up the good work.
I would recommend this product.

I initially bought these shorts for my job as a bus driver. They are a little too short for my taste for work, however I am super happy with the shorts and I will be living in them this summer! We sail, hike and spend a lot of time outdoors, and the fabric is perfect for all of these activities. I am very happy with the fabric, the fit and the style!!

Material is stretchy and light weight. Color is rich, I bought the bright geranium size 14. Two side pockets and two rear pockets are very deep. There is no way to fasten the pockets closed, would've liked a zipper or Velcro closure on at least one of the rear pockets.
I would recommend this product.

This shorts are lightweight, don't bind, quick dry, actual full size pockets that are usable - very functional shorts for outdoor activities. i'm 5'8" and 132lbs, got a size 6 and would say that they are comfortably roomy without being droopy. My only "frustration" is that I've noticed 2 small picks in the material and I've only worn them 2-3 times. Maybe the material needs to be a little more durable? otherwise, these are great go-to shorts for most days!
I would recommend this product.

I own a couple pairs of these shorts - love them, so was excited to see a different color (coral) besides the standard black/blue. Unfortunately, these felt shorter and a bit more snug than my other pairs (that I purchased at a Columbia outlet) so I had to send them back. Perhaps the outlet shorts are off and that's why they were being sold there but for sure, I prefered the little longer length even if only an inch if that. Guess I'll go back there and see if they have more.
I would recommend this product.

I wear these every chance I get. Very comy, easy to wipe clean if you have kids w sticky fingers ;) They wash up nicely. Perfect fit. I am usually a sz 12 and that size worked well. 5'9, 170. Flattering fit. I Just ordered 2 more in diff colors. The india ink is like a darker blue. Goes with basically everything. You have got to at least try these!!! I am not someone who ever pays this much for a pair of shorts, however these are now my go-to pair and I won't be wearing anything else.
I would recommend this product.

You guys read my mind!! Perfect length, love the stretch, love the casual modest style, LOVE THE POCKETS! Very comfortable, I didn't even have to go a size up for increased comfort like I often do. My one concern is that the snaps are very very strong, the material around them should have been reinforced. I'll just have to take care when undoing them.

These shorts are the most comfortable pair of shorts I own. They are so comfortable I don't even know I have them on. No binding in the waist or tugging at my thighs and bottom. I also love the length, long enough to be modest but short enough to showcase the best part of my legs. I plan to order them in two more colors.
I would recommend this product.
