Great Field Pant I primarily use these pants in a mixed conifer forest and a scrubland environment. In a typical day at work I cover 5-10 miles over rugged terrain and through brush. These pants are very sturdy. I have yet to rip a pair. The crotch is well cut to allow clamoring over logs without constricting movement. In fact, they haven't yet worn through at the crotch, like most pants that are heavily used tend to. The water repellancy is good for quick spashes, but extended moisture will wick through to the skin. On the plus side, the material dries quickly and repells stains. The lightweight material also sheds burrs well, but if walking through thorned plants, you will feel them. October 30, 2012
size! Nice pants but came 2 inches too big on the waist and 2 inches too long, they don't shrink I will probably order next size smaller and hope it isn't actual size. Not a way to shop. Pants are nice but go where you can try a pair on or start spending money. December 4, 2013
Great pants! These pants have held up great over the years I have worn them. Time and time again these are my first choice for hiking, brush maintenance, and as an outer layer on arctic days. Bottom line is they are a great pair of pants for almost any outdoor activity. November 27, 2013
Sharp look, works in-office and in-field Working for a non-profit environmental group I find myself in the office most days, but also find myself getting out into the field unexpectedly. This pant works great for both. A nice trim fit that looks sharp. It wicks water nicely.I immediately bought another pair of these and I find myself pretty much just wearing this pant most days now.

Great pants! Great for outdoor working environments, but nice enough to iron and wear with a polo. November 19, 2013
Very odd styling These pants have a very low rise and very wide legs. It is unclear to me the body type these are meant to fit. I have a 34 waist and 32 inseam so I am not thin, not heavy. I returned them and am sorry I ordered them as you have to pay shipping both ways for a product that is poorly designed. They looked ridiculous on. November 12, 2013
Good, but not Great, Pant for Adventure I bought these pants to replace a pair that I worn out. Wanted/needed these pants for summer time outdoor adventures here in Germany and throughout my European travels. They are light weight and the Omni-Shield technology works as advertised. My only complaint is that the pant is began to pile (show wear) in the crotch after a full day of hiking in the Black Forrest. The pair that I replaced had similar wear (and eventually worn thru), but I remember it took almost 2 years to get there. Since then the pants have not shown further degradation and have held up well, but I have to keep an eye on it. It would be rather embarrassing to be in public with a hole in the crotch!

Men’s Ultimate ROC™ Pant I ordered this style from a previous order. The previous had cargo pockets which I really like. I was a bit surprised when these came. These have no cargo pockets, but there is a pouch on one side to be used as a cell phone holder(?) and on the other side is a zippered pocket. Not what I had expected, but decided to keep anyway. These were ordered as work pants and they do seem to be ok. The product is Columbia solid, just not what I was looking for. When it is time to reorder, I will search for cargo pocket style.

Quality pair of pants This is a great pair of pants. One of the best I've ever worn. Very versatile - they're good looking khakis that fit in great with the business casual office setting, but they are also very sturdy and durable. They feel very comfortable and look like they will hold up for a long time.My only wish is that zip pocket on the right leg was a little higher - it's really almost too low to be of practical use. November 3, 2013
Customer service and product The customer service that I experienced was great and quick. I had my package within 24 hrs. The pants that I ordered fit very well and I plan on ordering more in the near future. October 28, 2013
You'll wish you'd have purchased more than one pair... I've NEVER written a review on a pair of pants but since owning a couple pairs of these (soon to be more) it would be a disservice to not. Here are my catergories:Comfort. Spot on. Not too loose, not too tight (they can handle a thigh that goes to the gym), not too high on the waist (below the belly button for sure) but not too low (your undies won't see the sunshine squatting down in these).Durability. Amazing so far. The thick belt loops are nice and these pants can handle a wider belt.Functionality. Deep pockets in front and back. Love the extra quasi-cargo pockets on each side. (My ONLY complaint is that the one on the left is just a tad small when it comes to the smartphones we have today).Looks. Rear pockets are sewn on not too far apart and not too close together so your behind looks great in them. Like I mentioned, loose but not baggy. They can be rugged or fancy depending on your shirt so great flexibility there.I still can't believe I'm raving about pants. I'm getting more colors. I hope Columbia makes these a staple the way you can always find a pair of 501's (although I'm a fan of the 569's personally). Please Columbia, always make these. Maybe make some more colors, I'm thinking black and denim?Buy these.P.s. Love the omni-vest with all the pockets too. October 17, 2013
Great outdoor pants Pants were purchased as a gift, the size runs large and the length was not as ordered. I ordered 30 length but they are way too long, measured 31.5. I will have to shorten them to fit correctly. However they are SPF 50 protected and rain repellent so they are good for the fisherman they were purchased for. October 14, 2013
Excellent pants. These are my favorite pants ever. October 7, 2013
Roc pants These are great comfortable pants. The material is extremely water resistant.Customer service is great too October 4, 2013
In everyone's wardrobe These pants are all that a daily use pant should be. Fit well, and true to size. They are made of a rather soft material which if you never leave your living room is fine. But use them in an activity they could wear thru sooner than you like. Keep wallet out of your hip pocket....even in your living room. October 2, 2013
Great pants for the colder elements Great pants for the colder elements. The only concern is that I ordered 34/30 and it appears that the leg length is much longer thatn 30 inches. Will have a tailor take them in to fit properly because my pant legs are dragging on the ground right now. September 30, 2013
Good Overall Casual Pant The pants run a little low in the back, but otherwise are an excellent fit. The material is sturdy and comfortable. Pocket size is really big for these pants, which is nice for oversized cell phones or other devices you might have to carry. September 19, 2013
Great for Outdoors Functional for those working or playing outdoors. September 10, 2013
Great Pants These pants are very good for casual wear and hiking. The material is very comfortable and they fit true to size. There are several additional small pockets which I found useful. I will probably buy several more pairs of these in different colors. September 8, 2013
I sure miss the Lander The Ultimate ROC is a nice pant, but that's about it. I was used to wearing the ROC and the Lander, with the Lander my favorite Columbia product, but alas the need for progress has killed another great product. The ultimate ROC is just too casual to wear t the office, and the fit is not the traditional slack fit. I won't purchase another pair, unless... the Lander comes back. Sorry Columbia, you missed it with this one. August 7, 2013
Ultimate Roc Pant These fit lot a glove; the water repellency really works; the dimensions actually are as they are claimed to be. Looks great for casual and work. The design is flattering! August 7, 2013
columbia cotton hiking pants The only downside is the sizing is very inaccurate. I ordered a 30 x 30 and its a 32 x 32. I had to have them shortened and the waste (measured) is 32 inches. On the website the 30 x 30 was the smallest size. This is disappointing as I ordered two pairs. Otherwise good produce and nice that they are cotton with 50 UV block. July 22, 2013
Great fit, very comfortable Great pants, comfortable stylish and functional! July 18, 2013
Perfect Perfect... nuf said. July 13, 2013
Button tore off the first month These pants are comfortable (although a little baggy, waist size was accurate). The button tore off the inside seam after I wore them three times. Extremely poorly constructed. June 22, 2013
These pants look, feel and function as advertised. They are great. I am very satisfied with these pants. They fit perfectly for me with just a little breathing room in the waist and just the right length. Very comfortable and good looking. Can be worn at work or play. Based on the apparent quality I expect they will last a good long time. June 8, 2013
Best pants I ever returned These pants look great and are made well. I have rather muscular legs and there was plenty of room. However, the waist was at least 2 inches larger than I am and this is the only reason I returned them. The pants were marked "full cut". Perhaps if there is a less full option, that would fit better. Columbia as a rule to me makes great stuff but there does seem to be some size variation. If you find a product that fits, the next one in that style will also, but there are many products that do not fit the same as others. May 30, 2013
Great all around pant I wear them to both work in the office and outside for hiking / fishing. More comfortable than some of my jeans. Glad I bought two pair. May 15, 2013
Inconsistant Manufacturing I had to return three pairs before I got a pair that fit. Length and waist sizes varied greatly.Be aware that you will not be reimbursed shipping charges either way when you return a garment. May 3, 2013
Better than expected I did not expect these pants to be as true to size as they are. After buying one pair in a Dick's I ordered a second. I will order more as I am now in the UK and water resistant pants seem like a must, not a option. April 25, 2013
Great looking pants I really like these pants, but can't wear my normal 32 waist size. They run a little large. The 30" waist is too tight and the 32" a little too big. I could use a 31", but it's not available. I like the fabric and construction, just wish I could wear them. April 25, 2013
Not True Size The product was all around hugh. The actual size was at least one larger than stated. Very disappointing fit all around. April 5, 2013
Half a dozen I own half a dozen of these pants.The weight (or lack of therein) is impressive. They tend to run a bit short for my long legs but not a problem when wearing boots or high tops.Super comfortable with virtually no movement restriction when jumping over logs or boulders.Phone pocket is probably the feature I like the most. Keeps my LG from falling out in the middle of nowhere.The zipper pocket is great for money clip and IDs.My only complaint is with the rear end of the pants, they wear out too quick. Even the ones I wear to work (desk job) wear out rather quickly and rip. As I said, I have half dozen of these and I'll get more. March 28, 2013
pant size is inconsistent I ordered the Tundra colour from the Canadian site and was impressed by the pants, but my size was not available at the time. So I ordered the Grill and Fossil colours from the US site.If they all fit like the Fossil, I would be doing cartwheels as I have now found "my" pants. The Grill pants are at least 1 1/2 inches longer than the Fossil and the Tundras are somewhere in between. All the other dimensions are likewise askew. As the packaging changes with each pant, it appears they are not only from different production lines, but likely different factories. March 18, 2013
Comfortable and Light Love these pants, just ordered more. Wish they had more colors available in my size level. March 14, 2013
Love these pants They fit a little small, but other than that they are great. Very comfortable, plenty of pocket space. February 26, 2013
thin material Nice looking pants. Cell phone pocket not functional.Material is lightweight, and I doubt rugged.Fit is a bit small.The Lander pants were much better-size, material, pockets. February 9, 2013
Nice Styling and Comfortable Pant Like the styling and color of these pants (Flax). Have the shorts in this shade so figured I would like the pants. It is difficult to discern the color however with names you have given them like Alpine, Fossil, Grill, Flax. Even with the colors showing on the pants, it is difficult to tell exactly what color they will be. What about using green, cream, black, brown, etc. February 4, 2013
great pants These are a little big for the size, but my husband likes the roominess and fit. They're attractive and have strong fabric. January 11, 2013
Phenomonal I bought these pants as an everyday casual wear pant and they are the most comfortable pants I own! I will most definately be buying more pairs of these. January 2, 2013
Difficulty purchasing pants ! Recently I purchased 2 pairs of ROC pants and I like them very much. I thought I would get my son a pair of ROC pants for Christmas. He wears a size 33 w and 34 l and I found out they are not stocked in the 2 stores in Portland. Therefore they must be purchased on line. That turned out to be a nightmare ! I looked on the Columbia web site for stores in Eugene that stock ROC pants. THIS IS NOT TRUE!I went to 5 stores none of which had much in the way of Columbia clothe period. Then trying to order Columbia pants on line is very difficult!!!!!! December 24, 2012
You Will Love The Pant, Like The Price Big fan of the Lander Pant collection. But with short supply had to try something new. The Ultimate Roc is a great pant! Plays well outside and in the office. Has the same feel and comfort you come to appreciate from Columbia. Two small Cons; 1. Prefer a loop closure vs. the snap closure on the pants. 2. Cost, little high. December 18, 2012
pants fit-almost I really like the ROC pants, the pockets are good for mobil phone, keys, etc.Delivery was great- UPS Ground delivers to our house, Postal Service does not- could be better if free shipping :)Size was a little larger than expected, knew they would need altering because I wear 28 or 29 waist & 29 or 30 inseam; a 28 or 29 waist availability would be ideal :) December 11, 2012
It doesn't shrink Years ago while in Portland I bought a pair of the predecessor pants. They shrank to the point I couldn't wear them. but i liked them. So, in advance of overseas travel, I ordered one size larger. They didn't shrink, so now i have two pairs of not quite fitting pants.That aside, they are terrific (with a belt sinching them to a wearable size). Functional for safely carrying passports and large bills in the side zip pockets, they also repel spills, dirt, and wrinkles. Great all round for casual travel, and they work with a blazer for casual evening wear. November 26, 2012
OK but not great I was looking for a sturdy pair of pants for work. I found these in a local sporting goods shop and they looked good.They didnt have my size so I ordered them online direct from Columbia.I must say I am a little dissapointed. The material seems thinner than I remembered when I tried on a pair in the shop. I dont like the pop button to fasten the waist.I would of preferred the material to be thicker and a proper button on the waist. November 26, 2012
My son LOVES these pants. He is on the go (in all kinds of weather) as a journalist and has to look professional, while staying dry, warm and comfortable. These pants are perfect for his active lifestyle. November 21, 2012
Great feel These pants feel great to wear. They are very light weight.I have been wearing the other ROC pants which I also like, but they are heavier and have a canvas feel.I will buy more of these. I only wish I could tell the color options better from the web site. Marsh, Trail, Verdant, Grill, Fossil, Alpine Tundra? Am I suppose to know what colors those would be? November 19, 2012
Good, could improve I wish Columbia would bring back the 100% cotton black pant with good deep front pockets, a side leg zippered pocket, and ditch the carpenter's pocket so the pant would have a less informal look and use. the ROC is OK, but there are three different options and this one looked like the one without the extra carpenter pocket, but no, it's still there. a good sturdy travel pant that can be dressed up with a sweater or coat is what I was looking for. close, but this isn't it. November 5, 2012
The product is OK I was visiting the Columbia Employee's store as a friend and was told by a floor associate the Men's ROC pant was no longer made. Therefore I ordered 3 pairs of the Ultimate ROC pants which for a 38/30 are about an inch larger in the waist. The crouch is shorter thus less room than the ROC Pant. Lastly the rear seem has less length thus giving one the feeling of a 'weggie'. Don't get me wrong. Columbia pants are great products it is just the ROC Pant beats the Ultimate ROC Pant in my book for my body form. October 19, 2012
Nice casual wear Everything is fine except the snap closure above the fly zipper. The fit is too loose, won't hold the two flaps together, even below a wide belt.I have noticed this problem on two other pairs of these pants as well.Annoying October 3, 2012
