I am a big guy at 6'3" and 235 lbs. Size 40 fits perfect throughout. Love the comfort for walking on the beach or just hanging out. Buying more as soon as I get to the store.
I would recommend this product.

After using the Silver Ridge Cargo Pants, I decided to try the shorts. They perform well for me in a variety of hot conditions. The thing I like about them is that they're quick drying and the cargo pockets are just the right size where other cargo pockets are either cavernous or not big enough.
I would recommend this product.

Nice light pair of shorts. Looking forward to wearing them once the weather really begins to warm up here in Arkansas. Like the black belt that comes with, I wear them with other pants/shorts when I don't want a real belt. They fit true, I wear a 30 but got a 32 for fear of them fitting a bit small. Thanks to the partially elasticated waist though I could still wear them without a belt if I really needed to.
I would recommend this product.

From year to year, can't count on size to fit. Changes all the time. Of course styles change, but the cargo pockets the basic water short which have served me years aren't there.
I do not recommend this product.

Have to return as the size doesn't work. Don't think moving to a larger size will help. Like the quality.

I ordered size 34" waist 12" inseam. The waist itself is correct but the shorts are just a bit too "form fitting" to be super comfortable just below the waist. They are a bit snug in the hips. The fabric is great and is perfect for the humid south florida climate; they dry fast and wick moisture away. If these were a bit more "baggy" they would be the perfect shorts.
I would recommend this product.

As usual, Columbia sizes their clothing much smaller than it actually is. I purchased this in what I thought would fit me just fine. I wear all of my other jeans and shorts in a 33-34 waist and have no problems with other companies' sizing. When I received this short in 34" waist, I couldn't even get it up to my waist. It's like they made this short for a man with a 34" waist, but designed the rest of the short for somebody with a 29" waist. The legs were far to tight to even consider. Once I could actually pull it up to where I could button it, the waist size was correct, but it's far to small in the legs and butt to even be considered comfortable, let alone be used for hiking.
I would recommend this product.

I buy Columbia for the reliability. Got these for my son-in-law because he is a big fisherman. Scored the big points on more than one occasion. Now it's all I get him. I don't normally buy clothing for someone because you never get the size, style, ect. right-but I can never go wrong with these. Great product!
I would recommend this product.

Really disappointed - ultra light weight - almost like chiffon - not for outdoor guys. Worst still I had to pay UPS $10 to return them.

I bought these same shorts in the Outlet stores and they were $5.00 or a little more less in cost, yet you can never find the color even though the outlet store says they will get them…and I made like 7 trips.
The two I got online and shipped to me albeit the same shorts had a design difference. The front pockets on the ordered shorts were better and seemed normal whereas the pockets on the Outlet store shorts were shorter and I am now of the belief that the Outlet shorts are a defect and while not being sold as such are actually seconds/defect products. It is also difficult to get them in sizing that this company offers like you can never find the 10 inch length although it is offered.
I do not recommend this product.

These shorts are perfect - light weight, rugged, pockets galore, "built-in" belt, no ironing needed, fast drying - and did I mention comfortable? They come in colors to fit any wardrobe requirement, too.

Great hiking shorts for warm weather. Very lightweight nylon is quick to dry and relatively cool. They're cut in a more traditional/slimmer fit, so if you're looking for a loose/baggy fit you'll want to size up.

Bought the Silver Ridge Cargo Shorts for fishing, crabbing and general summer outdoor wear. Medium fits very well for me with a 34-35 inch waist. Has a slim tailored look which is appreciated without the total baggie look of most cargo shorts. They dry quickly and have one zipped leg pocket, the others are velcro closures. Would recommend both leg pockets be zipped for valuables safety if you happen to go overboard. Removable belt works well and is practical around water. All in all a great product so far.
I would recommend this product.

I bought the shorts for a four day hike in Olympic National Park. They were comfortable, durable, and functional. The front pockets were deep enough to keep stuff in but not so deep they got in the way. The zip cargo pocket was the feature I really liked for stuff you could not lose.
I would recommend this product.
