Columbia Sportswear is a well-known brand providing tested tough outdoor gears. So before we embark on our hike in Mt. Fansipan, we made sure to get our son Wyatt Maktrav all the necessary apparels for the hike. We've got him a drifit shirt, shorts, fleece, waterproof jacket, and hiking shoes. All of those are from Columbia Sportswear.
For the shorts, the available model is the Columbia Sportswear Boy's Silver Ridge III and here's our review.
Columbia Sportswear Boy's Silver Ridge III has two available colors - fossil (grayish) and grill (blackish). Wyatt got the fossil one and he likes it. As for the size, the only available in the store is the small one. It is a little bit big for our 4-year old son but thankfully, this shorts has interior elastic waistbands that can be adjusted. There are belt loops as well and the pockets are good.
This is very lightweight, making it perfect for hiking and any outdoor activities. The Silver Ridge III shorts has a quick-dry fabric. When Wyatt played with the water in the river while we're trekking, his shorts got wet but it dried up after few minutes.
The fabric is soft so Wyatt Maktrav is very comfortable with this shorts. He can run around without worrying about it. This shorts is also said to be omni-shade, with UPF 30 sun protection. Awesome, isn't it?
In all honesty, we loved the built of this Columbia Boy's Silver Ridge III Shorts and we can't say a single thing that we don't like about this product.
Overall, we're extremely happy that we've got this Columbia Boy's Silver Ridge III Shorts for our son. He is very satisfied with it as well and it is certainly a must-have for our son's hiking adventure and we'll definitely get the next size for him in the future.
If your kid enjoys the outdoors, this Columbia Boy's Silver Ridge III Shorts is perfect for him!
