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.
Agree with the other reviewers. These run small. I wear a size 6 in the Columbia Saturday Trail Pants, have a Columbia skort that might even be a size 4, & had to get an 8 in these. I normally don’t wear an 8 in any brand. The 6 fit too tightly though the rise/crotch area (if you’re short it might not be a problem, I’m 5’7”); sizing up eliminated that although the waist is a little big on the 8. Love the color which is more fun than the typical boring hiking shorts. Haven’t put them to the test yet, hopefully they’ll be as comfy as they are cute in color.
Once I ordered one size up I was happy with these shorts. They are very comfortable. I do wish they had a secure pocket for a phone. I chose the blue and tan to get the lower price. Good value at that price.
