Great for day hikes and camping trips, the Columbia Women's Back Beauty Shorts combine stretchy comfort, a full coverage length and rise, and high tech protection for long days outdoors. The shorts' flat waistband is both flattering and comfortable and the mid rise, high back waist keeps you well covered when you have to bend over to tackle steep, boulder ridden sections of trail. The longer inseam length offers plenty of coverage to protect you against rough rocks or sharp brush, and the fabric's UPF 50 rated fabric protects your skin from harmful UV rays. Thanks to Omni Shield fabric technology, the shorts are water resistant and dry quickly so you're not soggy if you're caught in a light rainfall or working up a sweat. When you're out for a quick excursion, stick your car key or lip gloss in the zippered thigh pocket, and enjoy the shorts' moving comfort and valuable protection while you're out on the trail.
