Do Not Buy Columbia Sportswear Over The Internet
Columbia Sportswear Customer Service department really sucks. Customers beware when you buy Columbia Sportswear products over the internet.
I really got taken by Columbia when I purchased Whidbey men's shorts. I originally purchased several Whidbey shorts several years ago and was very pleased with the short. I recently decided to purchase more Whidbey shorts. I purchased 4 new pair size XL over the internet.
Same size but different colors. What I got really blew me away. Two of the new shorts fit perfect like the original Whidbey, the other two short had 5 inch increase waist diameter. I called Columbia and ask why a big size difference on the same mark sizing.
No explanation, just that Columbia can make changes in sizing at their discretion.
5 Inches is really a big change. So if you want a Columbia Sportswear product you need to go to a shore and try the fit before buying.
Monetary Loss: $100.
