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've purchased the Columbia Saturday Trail shorts in size 10 and I like them, they fit little lose on me (5'7" 145 lb). This style fits differently most importantly it runs smaller and gives me a camel toe. Sending them back.
I generally like Columbia and wear a 4 or 6 depending on the style. I got these is a 4, and they are definitely too small. But, going to a 6 would not solve the bigger issue, which is how they are cut, like they should fasten "below" the waste, but they don't. Basically, this turned them into a thong.... not good. Not comfortable. Not attractive. I am 5'3 110lb, so I'm not a big person. Even on my small frame, they just look all kinds of wrong. The tag says "active" fit, so maybe this is something to get away from for me. The Amazon description doesn't say "active fit" but maybe I will go to the Columbia site to check others before I buy them. The material is good, and the pockets are just right, giving you some extra storage options without looking bulky. They are going back, unfortunately.
I ordered to different colors in these shorts. The elk were a bit looser than the grill, but both were too tight across the tummy area, but a great fit through the waist and hips. Strange to have the mid part tighter than the waist. I bought a size 8 - also tried a 10, but they were huge.
