Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect everyday shorts for everything! These shorts are fantastic. They are perfect for working in the yard, going on a hike, being out on the water or just hanging out. The fit is very comfortable and the length is great for my liking. You can move really easily in these. The pockets are actually useful and are full size while the back pocket has a zipper for holding your important items. The fabric is lightweight but not see through. The waistband is comfortable and not that weird tight fitting gathered waistband you sometimes get with this type of fabric. If you are on the fence...get off the fence and order them! I personally ordered a size M and am 5'1" 130 lbs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Saggy baggy [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have Columbia everything. Rain jackets, ski jackets, wind jackets, base layers, leggings, pants, tops, pfg shirts, skirts, you name it! Omni heat, omni cool, omni dry. Hands down my favorite brand. So when these arrived I was stunned, confused, to find that they were sooooooo large and fluffy on me and I'd have to return them! My very favorite shorts are my Columbia sandy river shorts.... these seemed a fun alternative with similar purpose. Now, not only have you disco'd the ultimate summer staple but this --- just doesn't work! Bring back the sure thing please!! You know the saying.... if it ain't broke....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like everything but the fabric I desperately needed new shorts for outdoor activities, so I bought 3 different models of Columbia shorts to try. Happy to say I kept them all, and I like them all, but the PFG Backcast was my least favorite. I compared this one to the Sandy River short and the Bogata Bay stretch short. For reference, I'm 5'6" and weigh 185 with a pear-shaped body. I got size XL. All 3 pairs fit, although they are just barely big enough to wear without pulling across the pockets. Since I'm losing some weight, I didn't want to get a bigger size. The PFG shorts look good, but I don't like the fabric nearly as well as the fabric on the others. It's a little rough, and drags against your underwear. The others are smoother. The fabric on these is also a little heavier, although not so much I consider that a negative. There is no stretch with these. Having said all that, I still like these and will get a lot of wear out of them for walking, kayaking, gardening, and lots of outdoor activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Shorts These are the fourth style of Colombia shorts I have bought, and these are definitely my favorite style so far. I am 5'-5", 215lb, and the Plus 1x in these shorts fit great. The elastic band is loose, but there is a drawstring if needed. The overall fit is relaxed, the legs are loose but not overwhelmingly baggy. The length is perfect - not too long, not too short. I think I'll get a lot of use out of these shorts for boating, golfing, running errands, etc. Overall would 10/10 recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought a pair of these shorts to wear for a beach trip back in September. I love the mesh side pockets and the back zipper pocket. These shorts dry really quickly and kept me cool while fishing. I couldn't decide if I needed a medium or a large, so I went with a large and they are a little too big. I wear a size 8 and weigh about 185 pounds.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weird sizing I bought these shorts in a large and they were huge on me, and returned them. I saw they went back on sale so I tried again, this time a medium and they are tight on my thighs. I haven’t decided if I should keep them or not since the return cost eats up most of my refund. Not sure how to answer the fit questions since it seems like you need a size between medium and large. The fabric is heavier and stiffer than I was expecting for shorts to wear while being active.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Summer Shorts [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have worn these every day this summer! i have them in 3 different colors and they are awesome on their own or over a bathing suit! They run true to size i would say. i am normally between an XS and S and i got an XS in these. I am normally an XS in Columbia Dresses

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shorts I was looking for 5” shorts with pockets (to hold dog treats & cell phone) which was harder to find than I expected. Initially, I was a bit skeptical about the fabric - they’d be great to paddle board, raft etc but I have come to really like them, even just for brisk walks with my dog. I would say they run a bit small; I bought a M and am 5’4” and 122 lbs and they fit fine. Wish more colors had been available when I purchased these!
