Columbia Sandy River Water Shorts for Ladies
I love theses shorts. We live by the beach & I have a 2 yr old son. We are outside everyday to the beach, a park, playground, riding bikes, etc. These are perfect to put on to run around shopping, playing & keeping up with an active little one. I thought the fit was really great & maybe a little big in the waist compared to the previous ones but I still got the same size. Love the new colors. Hate that the only store that sells them near me (Dick's Sporting Goods) only has black & verdant. The are very light weight & you do have to were light colored underwear if the shorts are a light color. I will buy more. Just wish I could buy more Columbia shorts in the stores.

For Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere
I was originally sold this product as male swimwear! It worked perfectly, did not gather sand clumps at the beach, dried faster than any other material I know, and covered just enough without excess material making it hotter. The first pair I have had for three years and it is as durable as ever.
Because they are so comfortable, I began wearing the shorts more and more around the house even in winter. It was clear that one pair was insufficient, so I ordered three additional pairs directly. Delivery was speedy, quality maintained, and the price less than I paid in the store.
I cannot say how women and children fare with this (I would imagine well) but the suit suits men just fine.

These shorts are good but the ones from a couple years ago were better
I have a pool service company in Texas and these shorts are great for the hot temperatures. They dry quickly and hold up very well. I am disappointed with the changes they have made to the fit of these compared to a couple years ago. It seems the legs are wider and shorter and the waist is lower. I am bending and squatting all day long and the legs on these tend to roll up where the older model did not. The older model I was very comfortable in the large but now I have to get the extra large that just doesn't have the same fit. I guess since I am older I do not like an athletic type short below the waist so I am not thrilled about the new cut. I haven't found any other short that is as comfortable, breathable and light weight to withstand the heat.

Excellent Product but hard to find!!
I've had shorts like these for many years, washed zillions of times and use them for walking and fishing. They wear like iron. When they became so faded and I decided to replace them, they seem to have changed the style for "sandy river shorts" to something that has a belt and more pockets. I bought some of the new style but do not like them. Went online, found these and love them. Would be very dissapointed if this style would no longer be available as they are classics.
