I am 5 ft, 97-100 lbs, 64 yrs, a grandma. I got the xs and they fit great.
I would have preferred 8 in inseam but the 6 in is OK.
I started out with 3 pair, liked so well I got other colors.
I soon realized I really liked them so I got more. I now have 2 pair each of 6 colors. Half of them I wear for walking, hiking, running and the other half for daily wear. I remove the belts, don't use at all. I never snap or zip them, just slip on and off. My favorite thing is how quickly they dry. I also like all the pockets. The colors are really pretty. I wash and hang to dry.
I believe Columbia has discontinued this style..too bad...but I 'm set!

My everyday shorts around the house or hiking and boating. I am 5'3" 150# and bought the large. I like a little room and these fit just the way I like them to. I like all the pockets so I can carry the often used things so I don't have to stop and dig in my pack so often. I have 4 pair and will be buying more for sure!

These are my new favorite shorts. I bought them in nocturnal, which is a great deep navy, and doesn't contrast much with the deep gray belt. I purchased them for a canoeing trip, but now wear them just about every weekend because they are comfortable, flattering, and sporty. I am 5'3", weigh 130 pounds, and the medium fit really well.

These are full cut shorts with a good leg opening, so if you are like me and a bit pear shaped with a bit wider hips and thighs, then these are your shorts. They are comfortable and look nice. The leg length is good and just above the knee. These shorts are made for everyday and for adventure.

it fits like it's supposed to. roomy around the thighs, belt helps it stay nice and tight around the hips.
i enjoy the pop of color (teal). it's got good pockets, too.
i've worn it rafting, camping, moving houses and just chillaxing and it's been all around grrrreeat.

These are very comfortable, lightweight but a little short in length for me - I prefer my shorts mid thigh length. Dries quickly, great for water activities. This was my first time shopping I love it!

These are a great summer short. Fast drying I live in them most of the summer And also with swim in them. Very comfortable also They are relaxed so no tugging and pulling anywhere

I love the feel of these shorts. The belt is nice and the pockets are handy. I wish they could be a little longer, however. The fit is true to size.

These are great shorts. I lived in them last year and had to get more this season. Different colors to add to mine.

Negative Reviews:

Women's Sandy River Cargo Shorts

They tore on my first rafting trip, not enough room in the legs to be comfortable either - even when I purchased a size one larger than I usually wear - wish they had some lycra/stretchiness to them as that might perhaps make them stronger.
