Great pair of shorts, but they run extremely small. You'll want to order two sizes up.
I would recommend this product.

I loved the appearance of these shorts on the website. They looked comfortable and stylish and perfect for summer vacation. After readying the reviews, I ordered one size larger than I normally wear. Not even close. Still way too small.
I would recommend this product.

I second your comment. They run super small.

A 2X is usually a little loose on me. I could not even pull these up. These must run at least 2 sizes small. A 2X is like an XL. Unfortunately, I had to pay the postage to send them back. I am hesitant to order a 3X. It makes me hesitant to purchase any Columbia plus size clothes because it seems like there is no standard.

I was excited to see this package delivered. I opened the package and tried the shorts and immediatly was disappointed. They didn't even fit around the waist. I love my old Columbia shorts that are still very comfortable.
Sorry this didn't work !!!
I would recommend this product.

I ordered in my regular size and also a size up. The size up fits ok, but a touch snug. I do recommend going a size up on these shorts.
Ordered them in Major and was expecting an olivey color, they are definitely a brown shade. A nice color, just not what I was expecting.
I would recommend this product.
