To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have multiple pairs of Columbia hiking shorts. I know sizing can vary greatly in the Columbia shorts and I'm between a 4 and 6 so I have a 4 in some pairs and a 6 in others. I ordered these in 6 and they were way too tight. Also, the lollipop color, which looks like a coral, is actually light pink and they are completely see through- could see the pattern on my underwear. Sending them back.
Nice shorts....quick dry material....Columbia shorts very in size by style.....ordered 2 pairs of same shorts medium. ...and the pink fit fine and blue must have been mismarked because huge? Amazon. ...easy returns. Also "tiki pink" is more Florescent Pink! Kept them because decent price for Columbia shorts but nothing like pictured. The blue was really pretty as pictured, just didn't fit :(
I was worried from other reviews, but these fit true to size. They almost seemed too tight when I first put them on, but loosened up with wear. I don't like that the pockets are mesh lining, though...car keys catch. For size reference, I'm 5'5" and 170 pounds. I normally wear a large and that's what size I ordered.
I bought these shorts for a hiking trip. They appear to be well made and the material is thin and breathable so they should keep me cool and dry quickly. I am 5'3 118 lbs and got the XS in "Stormy blue". The fit was perfect for me.
These are the most comfortable shorts I have ever worn. I’m plus size and shorts are always a struggle. These Columbia shorts fit like a dream and they’re comfortable to walk in. The legs don’t ride up when I walk. I’m here to order more in different styles since now I know my size for Columbia clothes. I’m thrilled with the quality and lightness (Florida in August is gross). I was worried based on other reviews.
Bought 2 sizes. The 1st was way too small so I went up ONE size and it was at least 2 sizes too big. Makes no sense. It was for a mission trip so of course I immediately left the country and now I can't return them.
Lightweight...perfect for the beach and hot summer days. Fresh and cheerful colour. Tried them on and one of the plastic studs was very tight and popped off while I was trying to undo it. Also, the cut is for people with flat backsides and skinny legs.
