Columbia recommends the Silver Ridge Cargo Short for activities like "boulder hopping" and "fjord fording," although we've never once seen a fjord that was shallow enough to ford; some of them are thousands of feet deep. Regardless, the Silver Ridge is lightweight yet rugged, with an über-comfy cut featuring a gusset detail for ultimate freedom of movement.


The Columbia Silver Ridge Cargo Short is geared up to offer comfort both on the trail and the street. It's made with Omni-Shade® UPF 50-treated fabric to protect skin during outdoor activities as well as Omni-Wick® technology, which draws moisture away from the skin and disperses it throughout the fabric to maintain a comfortable body temperature. In addition to the high-tech elements, this short provides a comfortable fit with an adjustable waistband and gusseted panels, which together deliver a wider range of motion. Pockets are placed throughout to keep valuables safe. 12" inseam. Body: 100% nylon. Lining: 100% polyester (57% recycled). Imported.
Some shorts weigh you down, some are so lightweight that they don't provide enough functional features, and some hit that sweet middle spot. The Columbia Men's Silver Ridge Cargo Shorts have lightweight, durable, and quick-drying ripstop nylon ideal for travel, camping, hiking, and backpacking while elastic sides and a low-profile belt mean your everyday belt can stick to its work and casual duties. Mesh pocket bags mean less material overall to maintain a non-restrictive feel while added Omni-Shade sun protection suits the long, hot days of summer.
If you`re looking for hiking shorts that can do it all, be it in the mountains, the woods, the river, or the streets, your search ends here. The Men`s Columbia Silver Ridge Cargo Short has it all. From quick-dry material to UV protection, plus plenty of pocket space and an adjustable waistband.

Bring back the zippered rear pocket!

I have several of these shorts and if it weren't for having to go to work, I would wear them every day all summer. My only complaint is that Columbia changed the zipper on the rear pocket to velcro. When I have my wallet in my back pocket I feel like it's more secure in a pocket with a zipper than with velcro.

The shorts are great! They're just what you want if you're looking for some good looking shorts that you can wear on an adventure or just around town. The sizes are about what I thought they'd be. They might be just slightely tight but I'm fine with that. I don't like my shorts too baggy when I'm hiking. These are perfect.

Nice pair of light weight shorts. Dry fast and are comfy. Belt is pretty cheesy but it does come off so I have replaced it with a standard webbing belt. The length is pretty good. They Fall right at the knee. Might be nice to be a hair shorter but still good.

John Pruitt at on 09/29/2013

I had to return my first order as I had ordered my normal size. Too Small.
I have recieved 2 pairs that fit (one size larger) and they are awesome. They are now my go to shorts. The zippered cargo pockets are excellent.

New favorites

I love the lightweight feel of these shorts, so much so, that I bought a couple more pairs and have made them my uniform for the summer. Great hiking short, and looks good with a nice shirt when out and about.

Columbia Silver Ridge Cargo Shorts

I bought these for my trip to New Zealand which I knew would be filled w/ constant outdoor activity. These shorts were a great fit, great for wet weather, and extremely comfortable. Definitely a good selection for hiking and recreational activities.

Awesome shorts!

Very comfortable and breathable. These shorts are lightweight, great lenght, they fit well, and are quite versatile. I like them so much I bought a second pair in a different color!

My husband loves...

My husband loves his shorts...We hang around the water a lot and I know he will get a lot of use out of them!

Solid pair of shorts. Wear them to go hiking dry out pretty fast. Light-weight.

alfp613587 at on 08/17/2013

these shorts are really light weight and breathable great for any outdoor use.

Neutral Reviews:

I purchase a lot of clothing from Backcountry and recently have purchased a few pairs of shorts that would fall under the category of the Columbia Silver Ridge. They are ok shorts but for the money I would buy more pairs of the Patagonia shorts. The Columbia shorts seem to have cheap zippers compared to the zippers on Patagonia shorts. Other than the zipper I would probably purchase these shorts again but would definitely look at others first.

Ron Warren at on 07/06/2013

I loved last year's version of these shorts and I wish I had bought more than 2 pair. The material on these feels more abrasive and they removed the "hidden" zip pocket. The sizing has changed a lot as well. I had a 32 in last year's and they fit comfortably. Without gaining any weight, I now need a 34 and the thighs are still tight. at on 05/07/2012
