I really liked the cut and style of these shorts. I normally wear a 10 and I ordered these in a L and they fit more like a 12/14. Since they didn't have any stretch I thought I might order up a size, which was a mistake.
They are super see through and I had planned on wearing them kayaking. Although I loved the light weight quick dry material and the flattering cut, there's no way I'd go out in public in them. They're thin/see-thru when they're dry. When they get wet, I'm sure they'll be transparent.
Bummed these don't come in a darker color/pattern, bc I would buy them again if they weren't white.
I do not recommend this product.

However a little disappointed that I ordered 6 pair and one came marked as the size I ordered but was clearly smaller. Unfortunately I did not catch the incorrectly labeled pair until after they had been washed. Otherwise super comfortable and washes well.

These shorts are fine, well made. They seem just a tad snug, where my usual size L would be loose. I wish the pockets were larger and the style like my old Columbia's - more larger pockets. I guess this is the new sleeker style these days.
I would recommend this product.

I love these shorts! They're just the right length, shaped well... very flattering to my 56-year-old petite self. They're sporty looking and of course dry quickly. I'm going to get another color. These are my new go-to shorts.
I would recommend this product.

I really like these shorts they look great and aren't too short. The material is simply the best, just like the original Coral Point Short which are still my all time very favorite but are no longer available. Unlike the original these dont have the cargo pocket and are about an inch shorter. I use these shorts just about everyday and have one in each color. They are very quick drying and comfortable and pockets don't bulge out but rather lay flat. very flattering fit. *They do run small so definately size up
I would recommend this product.

These are great shorts, dry quickly, very comfortable.
If you have heavier thighs I would not recommend these as the leg openings are on the smaller side.
They also run a bit small compared to other Columbia products I own. I fit comfortably into a size 8 and the Medium (8-10) just barely fit.
I would recommend this product.

Waist was too large and a belt not only looked funny, but slid up to the top of the shorts. The white fabric showed my underwear underneath.

I was really excited about these shorts, so much so that I ordered 2 pairs. I was planning to wear them to go boating/fishing knowing the material would dry quickly.
I ordered a small, I am normally a size 4. The waist was big, and the fit through the hips was very small/tight. I could not believe it. SO disappointed, I returned both pairs. I tried on a medium at Bass Pro, and they were way to big in the waist.
I do not recommend this product.

These shorts are wonderful. I am pear shape so I have bigger thighs and I often have chaffing. With these shorts I did not have any!
I am usually in between a size 10 and 12 so I choose size 12-14 because I like my clothing a little loose. They are a little big around the waste, but they stay up and they are still wonderful. They do have loops for a belt.
Overall these shorts are wonderful and I will absolutely get another pair!
I would recommend this product.

They are light weight, durable, dry quickly, comfortable, and extremely functionable. I bought several pair to wear for my lawn and pool service. They do not bleach out in intense sun exposure nor do they bleach out when exposed to chlorine. We just went through Tropical Storm Debby with heavy rains and flooding. Other than my feet being wet, my shorts dried up quickly...nice! For me and my size, they are just a bit big new, but will shrink slightly in the dryer. I will always buy Columbia shorts. Love them!!

Did not like the two snaps at the top of the zipper, the waist to crotch length was off, and the shorts were shorter than advertised.

I liked the length in the Coral Point shorts better. It was 8 inches. I also liked the buttons on the waist better. You could adjust the waist by about 2to 3inches with the two buttons each side. I was aware that these shorts going to be different. I am satisfied with them and the fit,but I wish you would bring the coral point shorts back.
I would recommend this product.

Comfortable and true to size. There isn't much stretch to these shorts due to the material it is so make sure they are loose enough for movement. They dry fast and are light weight. I am happy with my purchase.

Love, love, love these shorts. I have been looking for this blend of
material in a white short forever.
I wanted this for beach and boating so they could be wash and wear quickly.
I ordered a 6 and am 5'2" , 115 they fit nicely. I just wish the waist band came up a little higher to cover my slight muffin top better.
At my age (over 60 ) I needed a short that wasn't TOO short.
These are just right and will be cruising with me in April!
I will probably order the black also.
