Rated 4 out of 5 by TexasRollergirl Run very small!!
I received these shorts as a gift, and in my usual size 4. They fit like they were a size 0, and I actually had to get a size 8. They run INCREDIBLY small, with a very short crotch too. Other than that, they are great!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jana Great comfortable shorts with pockets
My sister and I like the quality of Columbia shorts. They seem to last and continue to look great after years of wear. The size of the shorts seem to be smaller than most of my other shorts so I took a larger size.
Would purchase others like these.

Great shorts! Love the length; not too long, but long enough, hitting me a few inches above my knees (I'm 5'8''). Just another typically wonderful Columbia product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Hikergirl Sizing is off
These shorts are the reason I rarely order clothes online. I am 5'8" with a fairly slender, normal build and do not have any unusual figure problems that make fitting tricky. I ordered size 12 after referring to the sizing chart, on which I was a M 8-10 according to the waist and hip measurements. I wanted the shorts to be on the loose side for hiking comfort, but these are too tight to be worn around the upper hips and waist and the crotch seam was pulled up too tight, like they were for a shorter person. They also came all wrinkled up like they were just stuffed in the bag they were sealed in...not a big deal, but not very impressive to get new clothes that look like they've been in the bottom of the hamper all summer.

Fit is always correct, I try on in the store and know when I buy online that I will receive a true fit on any purchase. Very comfortable for hiking or kayaking, dries quickly - which is good for a quick turn around on washing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lisak Great product, runs small.
Overall great product. The UV protection is great. These shorts are lightweight and comfortable. I suggest trying them on before purchasing. The seem to run small around the waist. I was fortunate enough to have purchased them in store, so I was able to get the correct fit.

These are very comfortable shorts. Also they are very easy to care for - just wash, throw in the dryer & they come out great. They do run very small though. Best to order 1-2 sizes larger than you normally wear. I usually wear an 8 or 10 - had to get a 12 in these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Adventurous725 These shorts have zippered pockets to secure your key
I just love these shorts! They are so comfortable that I hate to wear any other type of shorts. I normally wear a size 8 in jeans so I ordered a size 8 (on line) in these Columbia shorts and they fit perfect -- better than any other shorts that I've ever ordered. Normally shorts are very loose around the waist on me and I have to wear a belt but I don't seem to have that problem with these shorts. Also, I was skeptical about ordering online because depending on the shorts, sometimes I have to order a size 4, 6 or 8. However, with Columbia you can order your normal size and be assured that you won't have to return them.
