Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great lightweight hiking pants These are great lightweight hiking pants. Waist of these pants, as well as some of Columbia's other lightweight hiking pants, seems to fit slightly larger than Columbia's other pants. December 25, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great travel pants I bought a pair of these pants in grey for travel. I liked the slim cargo pocket for boarding passes, passport, etc. I also like how the web belt meant I didn't have to remove my belt through security. I liked them so much that I went back and bought a pair in "tusk". Very comfortable, stain resistant, and lightweight enough to pack in a suitcase nicely. October 3, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Tight to Crotch Tried these pants on and they fit extremely well except they pressed my crotch. I'm not sure if it's a new style or if all hiking pants are like this (these were my first pair), but it is definitely noticeable. I'm 6'0 180lbs. I may have thicker legs and rear end that could have contributed to this. April 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Der01 I can say that this is the best pair of pants I've every purchased. I bought them over a year ago and have taken them through a lot of rugged terrain - they have handled everything i've thrown at them remarkably well. The fit is comfortable. They are slightly loose and thin... It is a textured, strong thin, not a paper thin or silky thin. Great when you need pants but want to stay relatively cool. December 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT PANTS - COMFORTABLE - NICE LOOK I am not of fan of pants coming with a belt - these pants are the exception. The belt and look go perfectly with the pant. I am a 33" inseam and 32" inc inseam just do not do the job. The fact these pants come with a 34" inseam is great... I get the pants hemmed and they are perfect. I do a great deal of work in Afghanistan and Africa and these pants are so much better than another brand that has numbers in their names... Soft, and comfortable. November 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cascades Explorer length The length is spot on but when compared to the Silver Ridge it appears shorter. I prefer the pants I hike in a tad shorter so I am not walking on the fabric and having it catch on my heels. August 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable Lightweight Pants Great for summer trips. August 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 5 Star Excellent, true to size. If you like Columbia pants you will be happy July 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by These pants are great for summer! These pants are lightweight and wash and dry very nicely. They fit true-to-size and are perfect golfing pants. July 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Cool to wear.. Not on only are they cool to wear heat wise, they are cool to wear fashion wise! The fit is very good when it comes to hiking, fishing and plain old working. Love them!! June 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great hiking and travel pants Comfortable pants for hiking. Look good also. Fit well. It is great these come in a range of sizes. Can recommend. June 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cool Pants These are fine for wearing around the house, going to the gym, working in my shop. Maybe fishing but I don't fish. They came through the wash very well. May 17, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice I like these pants. Nice and light. Although it comes with a rather shabby army style belt with a very cheap plastic buckle. That is bad enough but it is almost impossible to put in a nicer belt since it comes with a elongated loop that will only fit this very narrow belt.too bad. Otherwise the product is pretty nice. April 21, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by you may not like the belt loop. I just bought MEN’S CASCADES EXPLORER™ PANT online and only one thing I don't like is the belt loop. I would suggest that anybody want to buy this pants and you should go to the store to see before you buy. I have my favorite 1.5 inches wide belt that fit in all 4 other Columbia pants very nice and it does not fit on this pants. If you remove the belt from the pants it is take some time to put it back on again not like other pants. April 12, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not up to your usually high standards The thing that bugs me the most about this pant is that the belt loops are not distributed in such a way that the belt holds the pant uniformly all the way around. The pant can dip/sag between some of the loops. This makes for a lousy fit and lousy look. The belt, by the way won't stay securely adjusted as to length and the snap doesn't always work consistently/easily. Fix these for me and I'll be happy to reconsider. Thanks... April 9, 2015
