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.
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.
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.
I wanted to love these as I ordered 2 different pairs of the same brand and different style. These were supposed to be a 12 but fit small. I couldn’t even button them! The material is well made though.
