Nicer than I expected
February 06, 2012
Very nice, quick drying nylon fabric. The full lining gives them just the right weight. I am 5'3', 115 lbs and usually wear a petite. I bought size xs, and it is just a little large, but workable with the adjustable buttons on the sides of waistband. The waist hits just below my natural waist. I love the longer 6" length. Overall the fit is loose and comfortable, but not baggy.
perfect for outdoor activities

Love these shorts!

The material on these shorts does not wrinkle like so many other technical shorts. I like that they come in 6 or 8" inseam, for more versatility. Great security pocket in back not bulky like others
Not my favorite shorts
March 22, 2012
I bought these shorts for a sailing vacation and didn't find the fit to be all that great. They were a little tighter than the sandy river cargo shorts and not as comfortable. I found them harder to move around in and returned them. I always but a medium in Columbia shorts and these definitely ran smaller.
Just love them

These shorts are a perfect length; not too long, not too short for my aging legs. I live in south Florida and spend a lot of time on the water in hot weather. These shorts are comfortable, dry fast and are much cooler than cotton. I got a small and think they are big, but there is a button tab on either sides to adjust the waist. Can't say enough good things about them. I now have 4 pairs.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, dry fast, cool for hot humid weather
Great Shorts, Slimming!
July 16, 2011
I have these shorts in black & dark blue in size small (I'm normally size 8/or large 6 at 5' 7" ). I use them for working out, beach walking, hiking. I agree with all the other reviews about quality, adjustable fit in waist, durability plus a bit more: The fit is really good for my late 40s body, plus they tend to squish in those slight love handles I can't seem to get rid of! Plus, the legs run a little loose so makes it good for laying out too if you want to push the material up and sun your full legs! I've had these type Columbia shorts for several years and they show no wear & tear.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, slimming
Luv These Shorts

Great fit (really like the adjustable waist), durable fabric, and comfortable for all day on the water!

Great shorts. They are comfortable, quick drying and look good all rolled into one pair of shorts. Also like that they are not too short and not too long. The adjustable sizing by way of a button on each side of the waist is useful & the shorts still look nice with the waist buttoned smaller. I got the shorts for fishing, but I wear them all the time. They do run a little big, but I thought it was fine with the adjustable waist.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

They are so comfortable and fabulous looking
Great Columbia Shorts!
July 04, 2010
Length is great, adjustable waist helps, and fabric is wonderful for hot weather. It is hard to find shorts that sit at the waist - these work well and are very comfortable.
My favorite short!
May 13, 2011
This is absolutely the most comfortable shorts I've ever owned. Now I know what I've been missing all these years. I bought it in white. At first I was concerned it might be see through, but to my surprise it is not. The material is outstanding and it seems to dry in fly. I can hardly wait for weather to warm up to wear it everyday.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value, great looking, dries very fast, wicks moisture
Off sizing but otherwise a great short
August 07, 2010
Bought a pair from a local retailer which was very roomy. Bought same size here on Altrec and short was very tight. Been a Columbia fan for years, but buying on-line pieces is frustrating. No fault to Altrec though .... flawless transaction. I just hope my 8" length on back order will be the right fit.
Love these shorts
August 01, 2010
I sent for one pair, wore them for a couple of days and immediately sent for another pair. The fit is true to size and they are comfortable for all activities. I would highly recommend them to a friend.
Best shorts I've ever owned

I love these shorts they wash and wear great. No wrinkles, they come in a short length or a longer length (I have both) I've bought a few in the same colors so that I have one on my boat and one at home. These are the only shorts I wear now. I wish the Coral Point would come in pants I would buy them too.
Just what I want!
March 05, 2011
Great for on the boat - easy to hand wash. They dry quickly and look great. Adjustable buttons at waist good for fit. Inseam great for those who don't want "short" shorts. Run large so order a size down.Pros: Performance, Cons: run large
Sizing very peculiar!
August 23, 2010
I first ordered this short in a L as I am normally a size 12 in Columbia products, they were too big so I reordered a medium. To my surprise the M was a tiny bit bigger than the L!! I have sent them both back in frustration, do not know if this is due to Columbia sizing changes or ?
columbia shorts are the best
July 09, 2011
these are nice shorts. The material is alittle more heavier than the Sandy River Cargo shorts I bought. They seem to run large in size so will have to return for a small. One nice feature is they have tabs on both sides of the shorts that you can take them in maybe a 1/2 inch on each side but still ran large so I would go down a size. The material is alittle heavier so they could be worn as a dressier short verses the light weight Sandy River Cargo shorts which are alittle more sporty.Pros: Great design, Lasts forever, side tabs you can thighten the waist

I love my new Columbia Coral Point Shorts. I a very please with the quality of the material and workmanship. The fit is just what I wanted. I wear them when I walk, work in the garden, go fishing, as well as shopping. I was also very please with the fast delivery. I just wish they had my size in black.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value

Great shorts. Great fit! Bought them on sale and it was a great buy! I have three pair and plan to buy more. I am 5'3" medium size and these shorts are a great fit. Very comfortable! Love these shorts!Pros: Great value, Performance

Great on the water & casual wear shorts - usually hard to find shorts that offer two different inseams. Keep those 8" in stock!
