For the most part I like these shorts. The legs are a little bit too wide, other than that they are nice, light weight and dry fast.
I would recommend this product.

I ordered the same size I have in other Columbia capri pants and the shorts fit much differently--tighter all over.

I bought these to wear over padded biking liners. They worked great. Nice and light weight but sturdy. I would like them to be an inch or two longer.
I would recommend this product.

I do a lot of sailing and have 6 pairs. Wish I could get shirts and bras made in this fabric. I was in the BVI for 11 days. I used them as swimsuit bottoms. They wash easily and dry quickly.

I purchased these at the lst minute as I was packing for my whitewater 7 day raft trip. They were perfect. Quick dry, tough and looked reasonably good on my plus size hips. They were roomy and comfortable so they worked well day after day without showing dirt. I highly recommend for active outdoor wear for a plus size woman. They could be another inch or two in length.
I would recommend this product.

I bought two pair (tan & ink) for a trip to Costa Rica. They seem to be very light weight, and I know that they will dry quickly in case of sudden rains there. As others have said, the belt is fairly flimsy, so I took it off. The fit is perfect for me. I am 5'8" and overweight in the thigh area, but they have ample leg room and fit well with the elastic in the waist. As others have said, I would like to see these maybe a bit longer for sitting down, but for hiking they seem to be fine.
I would recommend this product.

Cargo pants without hip pockets - Seriously??
None of the pockets in these shorts are large enough for a wallet. I don't buy cargo shorts as a fashion statement, I want them for pockets.
As a plus size woman my choices in shorts are very limited, but these are just not functional. I am returning them.
I do not recommend this product.

These cargos are great for walking, even in the heat and humidity of south Alabama! They don't ride up as you walk and the fabric breathes great so you stay cool! Love them!

These were just what I was looking for, but just a tad too short for my liking. There is nothing wrong with the product....just I like my shorts longer.

Excellent shorts! Fabric and fit are very good. Very comfortable. I ordered more. They are roomy enough for sports. Cool enough for hot Florida summers. Good for bike riding, gardening, hiking, tennis and relaxing.

Purchased these shorts for summer and was surprised of how well they fit the run a little big which is nice. I just wish they had these in more colors. I will be buying more of these and I am also looking to try the pants as well.

The material is thinner than what they used to be and so they tend to wrinkle a little more than what I would like.

This is my first pair of Columbia Sandy River™ Cargo shorts. Love the feel and fit...very comfortable. This black pair will be my fishing shorts for Hatteras Island this summer. At age 60 I have started the 3rd ACT and working on my Bucket List.
Enjoyed shopping online. Glad you carry the extended sizes.
Also thanks for the coupon, just used it to purchase a pair of Arch Cape™ III Knee Pant.
I would recommend this product.

Would prefer that there was velcro on the pockets however, unlike previous owners of this style, I didn't buy a pair that included the when it was available. I figure I can just sew my own velcro on at this point though it would be nice if they added it back in order to keep things "locked in". Wore them on a hiking trip over the weekend in Rocky Mountain National Park. They were very comfortable.
I would recommend this product.
