Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stay Cool I love all the convertible pants but this one witch allows air to enter around the legs is awesome, didn't realize how much I would enjoy them until after I had used them. A+++ March 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stain free Stain free and great look every day. March 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable daily wear I wear these pants almost daily in the summer (as shorts) and they are lightweight and comfortable. Although, not the most durable. One small tear after one season isn't bad, and sacrificing the heavy duty fabric for comfort is worth it to me. Tip - The fossil color is more of a khaki that grey. February 1, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great warm weather pants, terrible pockets I used these pants in the low desert where the weather regularly climbed well above 100F. I found these pants to keep me cooler than other hot weather convertible pants I've worn, and the vents really help to make the most out of a stifling environment. I was worried that the thin, flimsy looking material wouldn't stand up to the harsh desert terrain, but they have stood up well against the rocks and cacti. My only complaint is that I immediately encountered the same unstitching of the waist/hip pockets. The zippered pocket remained intact, but the waist pockets became useless after the first wear. These pants are great in hot weather, just be prepared to not use your pockets or you'll be fumbling for your keys and change lost deep in your pant leg. January 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another great pant from Columbia!! The Airgills are my fifth pair of Columbia pants, and I can't say enough praise about them. The extra venting is a great option. Comfortable and feature loaded. September 15, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Poor stitching in pockets During my first wear the stitching in my pockets began to separate with little to no stress applied. I was very disappointed that it happened on my first wearing of the pants. July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Pants Great fit, stay cool in the heat. June 25, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very light weight and comfortable I'm not a fisherman but I needed a pair of convertible summer pants and this pair pretty well fills the bill. My one problem is that the main pocket design allows small change to slide out if I'm slouching back in my chair. Yeah... I should improve my posture, but... June 25, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by "Dialysis pants" I ear these pants to dialsys because it gives access for my thigh port. It does live up to claim of being "blood resistant". The tech spilled some my blood on the pant and came right off. June 20, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great high activity pants I work outdoors for a living in some pretty extreme environments. This last summer I worked in the desert of Southern California. In temperatures over 100 degrees I was looking for something to keep me cool. These Airgill Convertible pants are by far the best thing I have found. I prefer them to Columbia's other desert pants. My only complaint is that the front pockets are closed with stitching on the front of the pants. The flaw to this is that the stitches pop the first time you bend down sending your keys and change down to you knees. If you are looking for high performance, breathable pants this is my pick, just don't mind digging for you keys lost somewhere within the pants leg. September 15, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Versitile! Excellent! wear either in cold weather or warm. May 29, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by pockets stitching horrible I just read the other two reviews and exact same thing with me. Right pocket's stitching came completely apart after wearing TWICE. Horrible quality for so much money. Pockets are vital for keys/wallet/phone. April 14, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not Durable/Useless Pockets After wearing these pants one time my keys ripped the pocket wide open and the stitching started coming unraveled. The pockets are way too small for anything and everything falls out. I do like how thin they are but they could be designed a little better to hold up a little more than they do now. It feels like you are practically wearing nothing which I like being I wear these at work in the heat. $80 pants should hold up a lot better than this. Fix the pockets and durability and these will be great pants. June 15, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Airgill pants Really liked the pants, very lightweight, cool, and comfortable. Only problem I have had with them is after only wearing them one time the stitching for the pockets are coming apart. March 28, 2011
