Comfortable and flexible

I did end up sizing up 1 and am pleased with the fit. I am larger in hips and butt. It is nice having the tie waist. I am 5’6” #153. I usually wear an 8-10. I bought 12 for these.

Sizing seems small

Sizing seems different. I’ve purchased these before. The size 14 now seems smaller

Very nice shorts - but waistband snug

This is a very nice pair of shorts; pretty well made, nice light fabric, stylish, and should serve me well on the golf course on hot days. The one drawback is that the waistband is snug and has no elastic in it. This is the only pair of Columbia bottoms I've found that actually fit me. The trail and cargo pants I've tried are tailored to be body-clinging for thin, young athletic bodies, which excludes those of us who are active and older, but no longer - or never did - have slim, athletic builds. The rise was uncomfortable, they were very snug through the thighs and rump, even though I'm petite - 5'1', 130+lbs., so not heavy. I hope Columbia takes that into consideration when designing women's bottoms in the future.

These are the right length shorts for me

Love these, would have been great to have a secure pocket though as the hand pockets are short and when you sit stiff falls out of them.

I wanted to love them

Like the color, fabric was nice but the waist band was too tight. I tried sizing up and still very uncomfortable with an athletic build. Had to return them.

Pockets Not Deep Enough

Love the shorts, love the fit. My issue is that the pockets are not deep enough to securely put my phone in the pocket (and I do not have a very large phone). Why aren't the pockets deeper? The Saturday Trail II Knee Pant are the perfect depth (and even another half inch would be good). Unfortunately, I have to return them due to this design flaw.

Great shorts but run small

I've been wearing this style of shorts for a few years now and love them. I needed some new ones this year and, after reading the reviews, I decided to order a size up which was definitely the right choice. Be advised: These are at least one full size smaller than previous versions of the same style!!

Love the material, the pockets and especially the length which is why I purchased. The only thing I don’t like is there is sort of extra material on the outer part of leg which sort of gives a jodhpur look. I’m an average build so maybe this extra material is for someone more muscular? That’s the reason for the 4 stars.

Hiking shorts

Love these shorts. I did size up according to past reviews. I’m a size 6/8 ordered a size 10. They fit fine and shrank a bit when washed.
