4.6 out of 5
June 18, 2011
Very practical shorts. I purchased them in size large in the khaki color. They are a nice weight - not so heavy as to be restrictive, but not flimsy feeling either. Comfortable for movement. Nice length also. Good coverage but short enough to allow movement. Come to middle of thigh. Band sits just below waist and doesn't pull when sitting. I will be wearing these a lot.Pros: Great design, Ease of use, Great value
Bought as a gift
December 13, 2010
Since I bought this item as a gift I cannot speak to its comfort or durability. However, the shorts are exactly as described and appear to be of very high quality. Altrec shipped them out on the same day and they arrived quickly.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Great value
Nice lightweight shorts

These could be the perfect shorts for me... perfect weight, perfect pockets, perfect color, and nearly perfect fit. The waist on my Large size is a little larger than on some other Columbias, so they fit a bit loosely up top. I would try a Medium, but I think that would throw off the rest of the fit. Otherwise they are wonderful!
Favorite sailing shorts

I keep buying the Elkhorn shorts for sailing. They are comfortable in hot weather, dry fast, and have pockets the can be securely closed. Each year the shorts change slightly in cut and style but overall they are the best!Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use

Great lightweight material, and so glad Altrec carries plus size outdoor clothing.

I love these shorts. They are the most comfortable ever. I hate clothes that bind or restrict movement. These are light weight and generously proportioned. Great pockets for hiking, golf, cycling, or any activity.Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
Bring back the AL4411 ElkhornII
July 01, 2009
Liked the old ElkhornII better. Don't like the lower waist and the legs are slimmer and not as comfortable. Wish they had left the style alone!!!

I BOUGHT THE X-SMALL. I AM 5' 102 LBS. THEY NEED TO BE TAKEN IN AT THE WAIST A BIT, BUT OTHER THAN THAT THEY FIT PERFECT. THE QUALITY AND COMFORT ARE GREAT. I ALSO BOUGHT THE SANDY RIVER WATER CARGO SHORTS XS. NO ALTERATIONS NEEDED AS THEY CAME WITH A BELT AND SIT A LITTLE HIGHER ON THE WAIST.
My new favorite shorts

I love the weight of these shorts. They're lightweight but don't feel unsubstantial. They run a little large, but would buy more if they were in stock.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: runs a little big

The 1x plus size is generous and very comfortable. I bought them to travel in Europe this summer and think they will be wonderful!
Columbia Elkhorn 2 shorts

WOW, they are comfortable....lightweight, which makes them comfortable even in a brutal heat wave like we have been having...they are the only shorts I reach for lately...pockets always lay flat and the velcro makes them very easy to usePros: Great design, Performance

I've ordered from this company twice and have been very satisfied both times. My order came in a timely manner was just what I expected. Thanks!
nice shorts for around town but snug legs for hiking
June 07, 2009
I am a competitive powerlifter so my legs are a bit larger then the average person but most active wear shorts fit me fine. These shorts however were a bit snug in the legs for hiking especially on steep terrain.
July 15, 2009
They wear very good and its perfect for the weather in Florida since I wear shorts all the time.
Comfortable, lightweight shorts.

These shorts are lightweight, very comfortable and nice looking. They have a loose fit great for hiking. They have belt loops if a belt is needed. The front pockets could be deeper, but the additional front pockets and the back pockets are large.
For specific fits
October 03, 2011
I really like the design, comfort of this, and the fact that there were two lengths to choose from. I gave this 4 stars because the fit seems specifically accommodating to a pear body shape. I liked the expandable waist which is perfect for those fluctuating days, but given since the waistline was largely expandable, the shorts were loose/baggy on my hips. The extra loose material on my hips made me look so bottom heavy. My weight gains tend to add on evenly throughout my waistline and hips. This would have been perfect for me if there was not so much excess hip material.Pros: Build quality, Ease of use, Great value, size adjustment, Cons: Bad design, excess loose material
