      Too baggy in leg width. Flares out too much. Nice material, and color. Needs better tailoring.

      Comments about Columbia Sportswear Plus Size Sandy River Cargo Water Shorts - Women's:

      I LOVE these shorts! They are light and breezy, yet wear like iron. The legs are cut quite full, which give great range-of-motion; and quite honestly, if one is hiking in the forest and "nature calls", this can be accomplished by pulling a leg sideways, rather than hanging your backside out for the world to see...LOL!

      My single complaint is how shallow the pockets are - if you don't zip your car keys into the enclosed pocket - you will lose your keys.

            I've owned several pairs of shorts and I'm impressed that this pair fits just perfect and when I was in the river, my shorts didn't shift. Dried fast while hiking and kept me pretty cool.

              I volunteer once a week with an avian rehabilitator during "baby bird season" (mid march through aug) and have to be outside regardless of the weather. These shorts were comfortable in the heat/humidity and worked well (repelled water/dried quickly) in the rain. I did not need to wear rainpants (which can get too hot for me in the summer), just these shorts and a rain jacket (shell). I wash them every week (delicate cycle) and they are holding up well and keeping their color.

                  LOVE these shorts. I do wish they wear about 2" longer but it won't stop me from wearing them and buying more colors. I swim, kayak, go fishing, camping, hang around the house, run errands in them. They are so light that you feel naked, PERFECT!
