Hard to fault these shorts, they're cool, I've felt,
A lightweight fabric and a built-in belt.
But that fabric itself is has its cons and its pros,
When wet, it dries quickly, faster if the wind blows.
But the fabric's so thin, and sized small, just a smidgen,
It displays well your gender, as well as religion.
So friend, be forewarned, while stylish, beware,
These shorts will display your equipment down there.

Holy COW these shorts are small!

I own several pairs of Columbia Titanium shorts in size 34; those fit great. Not this pair. Could barely button them and they were super-tight on my thighs. Male-prostitute-tight. Maybe if I went up a size they'd fit.

This is puzzling because the Silver Ridge shirts are true to size, or even a bit roomy.

Giving them three stars because the build quality is just fine. Had I bought them in person I'd probably be happy. But the small fit makes them completely unwearable and now I have to return them.

You have to be very careful here in SE Florida to avoid cotton, which holds the oppressive humidity and gets grimy with whatever is attracted to moisture. These look fresh even after two days of wear. They are unlined, the pockets are secure (to hands, one Velcro and one zipper cargo, and two back Velcro) and fit to size. I'm a 42-plus in jeans and 44" fits very lose. Great web belt... can't say anything bad.

size was smaller and shorter than expected. Disappointed because Columbia Sportswear is normally a great brand that I can count on to be as described. Fabric and color are nice. Returned these.

within the first 3 times wearing these shorts, both of the back pockets ripped at the seems and now have holes in them. The hook and loop closures on the back and side pockets aren't strong and don't necessarily keep closed.
I am very disappointed with this product. I was expecting a fast drying tough pair of shorts I could wear hiking running or just around town. I was expecting pockets that would be able to hold my valuables even if I was in the middle of an intense activity.
instead they are kind of crap.
the good news is they are very comfortable and dry fast, and the belt works very well.

The size runs about two-sizes small - so go with a larger size when ordering. There is elastic on each side of the waist-band, but they do not stretch much, so are somewhat useless. Lots of pockets including one that is zippered shut, the others are held shut with Velcro.

Size Name: 50x12-InchColor Name: FossilVerified Purchase
I was extremely disappointed in the fit of these shorts. The shorts are a typical example of companies making larger sizes based on smaller framed body types. I have a pair of Columbia Big and Tall shorts that are over ten years old. The fit is amazing and they still look great after countless washings and rugged use, but these shorts are already in the charity box after two wearings. The reason is because I have a "lineman's" body. If you're familiar with football body types, you know linemen have larger seats and thighs that require a very large rise. These shorts have a very short rise, which means that they constantly slip down, and are extremely uncomfortable when sitting because they "grip" in a very bad place. If you have a larger seat and thighs, don't even consider these shorts. Extremely disappointed because I specifically ordered the longer leg size. To me, Columbia is now just another US clothing manufacturer that "doesn't get it" when it comes to big and tall sizes. Also, the belt is a nightmare to get off the shorts because it doesn't click and lock, instead, one has to feed the belt through tiny portals on the buckle in order to remove and put on the belt. Everything about these shorts is cheap and poorly designed.

Size Name: 44x12-InchColor Name: GravelVerified Purchase
I am a 42" waste but wanted something I could wear over a cycling bib with a pad. These are perfectly loose for this purpose. Also, I'm 6' and the 12" come to my knee, so I'll order another 42x10-Inch for general wear now that I know how great they are. Comes with a web belt, good pocketing, and a very light but durable nylon shell. THIS HAS NO LINER.

These are great because they don't go below the knee! I realize that's kind of a stupid reason to buy shorts but I find it uncomfortable when shorts go below my knees.

But these are light, breathable, have a REAL belt and carry a ton of junk. They dry instantly too.

Just great shorts!

These shorts fit great, make your butt and package look really good. Wick moisture really well too. Would love another color.
