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 always size up by one when ordering clothing from Columbia. I love the brand a their product. Not this time though! My size in the brand is usually M-L depending on the style. Ordered the L and it is enormous on me. The fabric is fabulous, cool and perfect for hot weather. The colour is a very bright canary yellow (like Big Bird yellow). There is an internal draw string at the waistband allowing for adjustment. Even pulling it tight did not help, the size was alot larger than it should be. Have requested a refund. Disappointed.
I got these shorts in 'tusk', which is basically khaki. They dry quickly which I like, but the fit is weird. I normally wear a size small but got XS based on review which was good. The waist is a little too big on me and they slide down (even with using the drawstring), but they are pretty tight around the legs - which is not a problem I've had with any other shorts of this style.
The material is very comfortable and great quality. Unfortunately, they run larger than anticipated, so I would feel comfortable saying these don’t run true to size. I recommend one size down as there’s some moderate stretch as well.
