Columbia Sportswear Silver Ridge Short Reviews:


I wore these almost every day on a 3 week summer trip to Japan and Taiwan. These shorts are super light weight and quick drying, great for hot and humid days. Even with the high humidity in Japan, the shorts would dry overnight when left on a hang line.
The belt is removable and is fairly nice considering that it comes with the shorts.
I would order another pair if backcountry still had them in my size.

Great material, lightweight, durable and comfortable. Good fit. I wear a 33" waist and the 34 shorts fit good. Usually I don't like elastic reinforcement in the waistband but it is very minimal in the Silver Ridge shorts and with a belt you don't even notice it. The only thing I would like is for them to make it in an 8" length.

These shorts are typically great Columbia material and quality, but for me they run very small. I'm in the old man age range with kind of a big waist area...I ordered size 42 waist which I wear comfortably in Levi's etc and it was way too small. Wish they made them bigger!!!

I wish I would found these 20 years ago. A bit pricey but hands down these are my all time favorite shorts! Lightweight, breathe well, belt loops for the custom fit, clean easy, dry fast, look good on and off the trail.

Wonderful traveling short! Lightweight, quick drying, awesome look, and feel. Used during a hiking trip out west and loved them every minute. They also are fantastic just going around town. Wish there were cargo pockets but not a huge issue.

These are one of the most comfortable shorts I own. Very light. Size 36 fits perfect for my 35 waist. I like a little roominess in the waist and seat. The included belt works well. Removable belt is a plus.

Great pair of shorts, love the fit and they are really comfortable. Use them for playing golf and they stay cool in really hot weather. Zappos was great to deal with.
