Run small

I bought these shorts online, I wear a 4/6, so I ordered a size small. They run small, I’m ordering a medium.

Soft, comfy and zipper pockets.

These are so easy to wear. I'm 5'4 and around 115-120 lbs. I wear a 4 in other Columbia clothes and a small in most others. These fit perfectly. I really appreciate the zipper pockets and unique designs. They don't stick to you when it's above 90 degrees outside and they don't ride up. These are just easy comfy shorts.

Great Zipper Shorts

These are exactly what I've been looking for! Zippers are a must for me so my phone doesn't fall in the water. I'm 5'1 125 lbs and these shorts don't ride up which is amazing, got the 5in inseam. Would like an olive/forest green color for work. My only gripes are that my phone slides toward my inner thigh in the pocket & the string could be wider for more comfort. These are a little noisy but I don't mind.

Almost Perfect

These fit great and the length is nice. They are quite comfortable except for one little detail - the zippers on the pockets! I like that they're sturdy zippers (I don't feel like I'm going to break them if I have to open/close them roughly) but if you sit in a more cramped position, they can dig into your skin because the fabric is pretty thin (thin in a good way). Other than that minor issue, the shorts are great. Buy them.

Great comfy summer shorts

These are so comfy and great for a day at the beach or just walking around town. The pockets are a nice size and the length is cute but not too short. I'd say it runs slightly small so maybe size up if you're between sizes.
