I purchased this product for my husband. I did purchase one size up based on the reviews and they fit perfectly. The shorts have a nice fit and appear to be high quality. I did purchase gravel expecting them to be gray, but they are actually a dark green. Zappos processed an exchange promptly. It is rare to find a company with such good customer service.

Shorts are just what I wanted, but the length runs short. Ordered an inseam of 12 since I am 6'4 and the shorts were above my knees. A check showed that inseam was only 11in. It's to bad since I have a difficult time finding shorts of this quality in my size.

These shorts are awesome. I bought them for my boyfriend. They fit well, appear to be good quality, ad they are reasonably priced. Nice light weight material for spring and summer.

Columbia is a quality brand that we have bought before. These shorts are no exception and are perfect for tall men with long legs (my husband is 6'5" tall). The 11" inseam is just the right length. We bought these to wear on an upcoming African Safari because they are light weight and quick dry. We give them two thumbs up!

I bought these for my son, he is 6'1" and he likes that these shorts are long enough to hit at the top of his knees. He is not in to the short shorts at all! He also likes that these are light weight and easy to wear. I bought him the grey and also the camp. And of course I received great service from Zappos!

About 10 years ago I had a pair of shorts just like these from Anchor Blue. They were my favorite shorts and I wore them for eight years all the time until they finally just plain wore out. I searched much over the years for a replacement and never could find the shorts. Well, These are "he shorts! Finally! When I got them I was walking around saying to myself "I cannot believe it!" I am wearing them right now too. Being 6'6" it is difficult to find long enough shorts that are comfortably loose and feel comfortable. These are them. No more searching for the perfect shorts!

Great shorts! Run a bit small so if you like some extra room, I would suggest going one size larger than you normally would.

I read reviews that stated the sizes ran somewhat small -- so I ordered a size 38 instead of a 36 that I normally wear. The 38s were too big so I exchanged them for 36s which fit perfectly. Zappos return policy is excellent, easy, and fast, as usual.

I've been looking for a pair of casual shorts that are as comfortable as my running shorts in very hot weather and I have found them. These shorts are very light weight, they wick moisture well and they look nice. The different configuration of the pockets (one has a zipper, one is velcro) is very handy but the material of the shorts is so lightweight that anything you put in the cargo pockets will bang against your legs while you're walking. Overall, these are my new favorite shorts

The best shorts. Lightweight. Great color. Pockets galore. I'm 6'2 180 and the 34's were a little big. 32's may have worked, but I've got a big rump. they're true to size! Get a pair or two. I'm wearing these all summer!

Husband loved these, almost a waterproof type material but I would caution to order a size up - he is normally a 34 and in these he is a 36.

Comfortable for normal length, good style, light, easy to clean, well made, like the 10" best, definitely runs a size small. Ordered my usual 34", had to return for a 36" and fit perfect.

Warning - these run small. I am a 34 waist and had to have these in 36. But they are totally worth it. They are light and just a nice summer short. The belt that comes with is functional and simple. I use the belt on other shorts as well!

I am always looking for good cargo shorts. Most are very heavy, baggy and difficult wash and dry. I purchased two pair a few months ago and I am delighted. They are very light weight and extremely comfortable. They don't stain and after washing, pop them in the dryer and in 10 minutes they come out with no wriggles or shrinking. They give you a tailored look without being too tight, look great on and on the golf course.

These Columbia Nylon Cargo Shorts are very lightweight and the fit is perfect, better than any shorts my husband has ever worn. I washed these right away just to see how long it would take to dry them as we were planning to take them on a trip. I hung them to dry and they dried wrinkle free within hours so they will be perfect for overnight laundering in the hotel. I ordered another pair right away. I can't say enough about these shorts and of course Zappos has no equal when it comes to prompt and courteous service. Thanks a million for this wonderful product.

These shorts are great. Lightweight, flexible, comfortable. Not too much "swish" noise as can be annoying with nylon shorts. The belt buckle is a little flimsy, but it's nice to have a belt, all the same.

Very slim fit! Had to return because they were just too slim overall. I'm not overweight, and I can appreciate a slim fit but these were ridiculous. Must be made for a real stick figure.

Shorts look great, are lightweight and cool. Just what I needed for summertime outdoor excursions or just bumming around town. I ordered two pair, and noticed a slight inconsistency in sizing. Thankfully Zappos' incredible return policy made this a non-issue. Order your normal waist size, but be prepared to go up or down a size depending on what you get.

This is a good product. Reviews I read said they ran small. I bought a size larger and they are fine (I like shorts a tad baggy). I prefer a zippered rear pocket, but no big deal.

Size does run small...I wear 31/32 in most pants and the 34 fit nicely. Light, packs small, waist has nice elastic "give" and belt is removable. My only complaint is hand pockets are too shallow.

My new favorite hiking/casual shorts. I'm ordering a second pair. I like things simple, but still have some exacting requirements that make it hard to find suitable clothing. Specifically, I've found that many of the slimmer styles that are around today make storing bulky items like keys, phone, and wallet all but impossible. The pockets on theses shorts fit the bill for me perfectly. The pockets are roomy enough without being poofy, and the shorts are extremely cool and lightweight. The fabric seems thin, but very durable.

The previous style the Silver Ridge 1 shorts were much better quality and had more practical pockets. This new version deletes the hidden zippered hip-pocket and makes all the pockets shallow. You will never put anything bulkier than paper money (like 2 or 3 bills) in the zippered cargo pocket because it makes the pocket and leg sag and flap about when walking so hence there is "practically" no zippered pockets on these that you can use properly and the back Velcro pockets barely employ any amount of Velcro to be secure. I also found the nylon fabric to be less firm and more flimsy on this version of these once classic shorts.

Brands I'd also recommend: Mammut, North Face

The design is great and the fabric dries quick. The size is not true to size. I wear 34s but these shorts are extremely small. Get one or even two sizes bigger.
