Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 69 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by A little snug and rigid The material around the torso/crotch is very rigid, so it doesn't allow much stretch/room for the goods. I ordered a medium (34) regular, and I would consider myself a 33, and this still seemed a little too snug. However, with that in mind, I wore them in the Rockies and they held up great. After a while I forgot about the rigidness. Hopefully they just need to get broken into a little more, but my suggestion to Columbia: make them more flexible for such an active sport! Also, if you get cold easily, these pants are only so warm. May need to wear thermals/etc. to compensate. February 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another Columbia Winner I've been skiing for 40 years. I've tried many other high end brands. Columbia has never disappointed me. The quality for the price is excellent. The vent feature in the legs is key for me. I hate to sweat. I wore these this weekend with no base layer and stayed very comfortable in 15 degree bluebird on one day and in 24 degree snow the next with 30 mph winds. I will use these for cross country too. Love the adjustable waist. February 2, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Too small in waist The pants are of excellent quality but the waist of the XL measures 38 when fully extended,smaller when adjusted in rather than 40 - 43 that the size chart lists. The legs have plenty of room for a baselayer and midlayer, the length is extra long. Someone with a 36" waist wearing 2 layers underneath would have a hard time being comfortable in them. Will go find a store to try them on before I order online again. Going skiing later this week and I'll be renting again. February 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great pants! im a 6 foot 4 and got the Medium size, it fits perfectly. very stylish, useful pockets and very warm. January 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable, warm, and fuctional! ....not easy to buy pants without trying them on, however, these pants fit perfectly, they were warm on the Colorado ski slopes and were comfortable and functional with many pockets....they were awesome! January 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by warm as toast! Wore them in really cold weather with just a pair of bike leggings. If I hadn't been aware of the temp I wouldn't have known it was cold out. January 24, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor design Pants are way too wide at the bottom to be practical for skiing. They also have no elastic or other way to cinch the cuff to keep out the snow. January 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very well thought out Very well thought out. Pockets in the right spot and a good shape to them.You really don't think about the small things unless you have a bad pair. I really like you can order them in short being somewhat vertical challenged. very warm and waterproof January 23, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too soon tell I would love to write how much I love these pants (I bought because two of my co-workers love'm) but the pair I got are HUGE. I'm 6'0", 180 lbs. 33" waist and inseam and the Large Reg were clownishly big on me. Very disappointed by lack of sizing guidelines. Need to return and buy Medium. January 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Wintersport Pants I use these for snowboarding and they work great. Bottom of legs fit around my boots nicely. They keep me warm when it gets really cold night boarding and when it is warm the leg vents work great to let my legs breathe. I ended up needing a size bigger than what was recomended, I am about on the line though. If you are close I recomend a size bigger. January 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by pant leg flare My only comment is that when compared to my LL Bean Carrabasset ski pants, the flare on these is very wide. I like a narrower look, but that's the only criticism. Good quality in the Columbia product. January 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great fit Ski Pants, not snowboard pants, fit great and look good. January 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these ski pants I'm a huge Columbia fan. The quality is great and this product shines with this Columbia product. You'll be happy!!!! January 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for snowboarding My 17 year old son wanted these pants for snowboarding. He likes them a lot! January 16, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice pants Warm, haven't worn them on my bicycle yet. Enjoy the fit. The mediums are correct for my waist. They come "short", and that worked. Tried large at a store and they were loose and long. Sizing is tricky if you haven't tried them on. January 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Ski/Snow Pant MEN’S RIDGE TO RUN™ II PANT in Black - Medium I'm 6-2 and usually have to buy a large to get a pant that is tall/long enough but when I tried out a large it seemed too big in the waist so I tried on a medium and that fit perfectly for my size 34 waist. The adjustable waistband is an added benefit. This pant features waterproof breathable fabric which worked great on the slopes as well as Omni- Heat which combined with the fabric made for a comfortable day skiing. As noted by others the gaiters seemed a little wide/big but when I tried them on over the ski boots they worked great even having snaps to adjust the gaiter closure to a range rather than just one size. For using with hiking boots they may be a little big but I use them primarily for skiing. Nice construction, lots of pockets, loops for your gloves or lift pass, scuff guards on the inside of the lower cuff, and a great price. Recommended by this skier. January 6, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by warm ski pant Perfect for cold temperatures with an additional long john January 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Men's Ridge to Run II Pant These pants are great! They're not too thick and bulky, but keep you warm and dry. They were an early Christmas present for a 2015 trip to Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado during that week. We did a lot of snowshoeing and got up high - above 11,000 ft. It was very cold and windy as well with temperatures in the single digits and low teens Fahrenheit. I was actually a little concerned with the layer of Thinsulate insulation because I sweat a lot, especially while hiking up mountains. These pants were replacing a ventable/breathable wind-breaker pant that I wore along with sweat repelling thermal underwear. I was pleasantly surprised. The pants along with the thermal underwear were perfect! They did not cause me to sweat any more than usual, and I actually appreciated the extra warmth and insulation that the pants provided compared to the old ones. These pants have plenty of pockets; something that my old ones did not have. The thigh pockets have velcro flaps which allowed for easy removal of my cell phone to take pictures. The hip pockets have zippers which are perfect for more security, as well as zippered rear pockets. I loved the form and fit of the pants as well. They look good on you! The waist can be easily adjust with velcro straps on either side of the waist and are very comfortable without a belt, but I wore a belt during the climbs and would recommend that. While hiking up, my old pants would bind at the knees and pull the pants down around the buttocks, but these are formed just right and don't have these issues. As for keeping snow out of your boots, the inner liner comes down nice and tight. I wore a high (ankle high) hiking boot, not a mid, and the liner never popped above the boot even after all of the uphill hiking. You can definitely use these as a ski pant, but I'm not sure if they are "true" ski pants. The only area for improvement that I saw while snowshoeing was that the lower part of the pants could be tighter around the ankles. My snowshoes hit the lower part of the pants a few times because of how wide they were; not very often or consistently, just a few times. Definitely not a deal breaker! Like I said, I love these pants! The pants are wider to allow wearing a ski boot, but that's not required for a hiking boot while snow shoeing. No issues after a solid week of continuous use. You will not regret having these pants! December 31, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Overall this product is good. My only complaint is that it fits a little small. December 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid Ski Pants Have worn these pants three times since purchasing and they have held up great. They have a nice, modern fit (I wear a 34 pant and got the Medium). The pockets are great and fully zip and as expected there are leg vents for those hot days. The Omniheat works as you would expect keeping me appropriately warm with only a thin baselayer underneath. Overall, great product, I would recommend. December 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by These are great pants! I love these, I bought them to replace an old pair of Columbia Convert snow pants, when they first got here I was surprised at how light they are, and honestly I was skeptical about how warm they would be. But they worked great! Spent about 4 hours on the snowmobile in constant sleet and snow, and stayed warm and dry the whole time! December 23, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Initial opinion Size chart says 40-43 waist with a relaxed style fit however I wear a 38 blue jean and these just fit. Fit is tight in the rear end and I won't be able to wear anything but a single layer under them. Haven't fully decided to keep them yet. Will try to follow up review after first use. December 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice pants The pants seem to be pretty nice in terms of functionality. Reflective material makes them not heavy or bulky, and good if layers are needed. I'm a 32x30 and the Medium/Short fit well in the waist, but just slightly long in the leg. My only real complaint would be with the pant leg opening. The bottom of the pant leg has 2 parts: The inner leg is presumably designed to be snug against the ankle (to keep snow out), with the exterior being wider to go over boots. The problem is that the inner portion is too loose. The unstreached elastic (to be snug around your ankle) measures 17 inches. My ankle measures 9 1/2 inches! What medium sized, short person has a 17 inch ankle? Can still be tucked into a boot, but certainly not how I would have designed them. December 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warmer than I thought I was under the impression that these pants had Omni-Heat insulation as well as thermal reflective lining, but there is no insulation, just the silver dots. I wore them (over Omni-Heat baselayer bottoms which were over another lightweight baselayer) on a snowshoeing trip in Yosemite on Black Friday and I was surprisingly warm, I even had to utilize the leg vents. True to size, warm, and dry, the only complaint is that I thought these were also insulated, but now that I've used them and found they are plenty warm I have no complaints. Great pants! December 7, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Zippers defective Ridge to Run pant has a Great style. Just the adventure pant I am looking for! When I unwrapped the plastic one of the pocket zippers was jammed. It opened up from the bottom and was impossible to operate. December 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Purchased this in preparation for the winter and a few hunting trips. I purchased the Graphite Digi Print and its a little more "blue-ish" than it is grey but overall seems to be a great product. Haven't had the chance to really put them to the test yet since I am from the south and it doesn't get 'cold' until late December. November 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by BEST ANYWHERE Columbia has the best product, anywhere. Period. These pants are just another wonderful example. I have had 4 pairs in 6 years and I just ordered 3 more pair, but don't think these aren't quality, they are the best anywhere. I got through these because I am an outdoors country boy. I have had carharts and all the other ones, but they last about as long, aren't NEAR as warm, and aren't waterproof. I hunt, fish, trap, ride horses, etc. all winter long and wear a pair of these all day every day, literally 12 hours a day. Two years ago, while trapping one night, I fell through ice about waist deep wearing these pants and the Lhotse Mountain Interchange jacket. It was literally - 22°F PLUS windchill... Needless to say, my thigh high waders didn't do much good. When I finally got out I was prepared to be soaked, but only my feet were wet. I dumped my boots out, put them back on, and walked the last mile to the truck. This is just one of a few scary stories where Columbia gear literally saved me. These pants and that jacket are my go to winter gear, not to mention the midweight baselayer. And Columbia doesn't pay me anything, just sayin. October 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Snowpants Bought the Columbia ridge 2 run Snowpants before my 4 day ski trip in the Rockies and couldn't be happier. Light. Warm. Comfortable. Attractive. April 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect snow pants! I brought two pants! Very stylish and functional! Especially omni heat works well. April 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Purchase I bought these pants for my husband. We moved to Chicago and quickly realized we were not equine for this brutal cold winters. These pants were used as outdoor pants anytime we had to be more than 20 minutes outside.... Usually when we are walking out dog. He loves it and the fit is great. Unfortunately I didn't give it a 5 because the black was out of stock. He still loved the color he got and it has been very useful during these subzero temperatures! March 12, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Functional and Stylish I bought a pair of Columbia ski pants a couple years ago and they've worked well; when I wanted another pair of pants I started here. I'm not big on bright colors so when I saw the Tradewinds Grey in sort of a cloud patern I checked them out (the actual color has a slight light blue tinge to the grey that's shown). They also came in a 'Short' which I need to prevent the cuffs from dragging when I'm not wearing ski boots. The pants have worked well for me and have been warm, the 'foil' type interior does require you to generate some heat so if you just walked outside and stood there they may not be the best choice (you might notice this on 'first chair'). I however have been warm and appreciate that they're not bulky. I've never felt any moisture or wetness even in snowy conditions. The cargo pants style is useful for carrying stuff, but I could probably do without the hip pockets. The thigh zippers are useful for hot days, but do add to a generally busy look. Another minor nit is that the rear belt loops are on the side and center so cross type suspenders pull oddly (I've solved this by making them center pull). What has surprised me is how many complements I've received on these pants from both friends and strangers. I now feel the need to buy a less bulky parka to complement the look. To be honest I'm not generally too stylish so this is something new for me. All in all I like these pants very much and would buy them again, they serve my needs well and stand out from the crowd. Well done Columbia. March 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product Good quality and good price for a Columbia ski pant March 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fit Great fit and not very bulky, I'm a 34 waist and the pant has plenty of room around the waist but the excess can be taken up easily by the adjusting the sides. It is difficult to find pants short enough for me (inseam 30) but these pants are perfect in length. March 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Men's Ridge to run As with all Columbia products the product is excellent with the only exception, it does not have gator hooks on the pants. February 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Little snug, but great product I'm a size 33/32 so I originally ordered a medium short and a medium regular. I didn't really find to much difference in the "short" and "regular" versions of the pants but the medium was very snug. Ended up getting a large and it worked. Great pants, durable, kept me warm on a day that was in the teens. February 25, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cool pants Wasn't sure if I should have gotten the frost or the dark pant when shopping online, so I went with Frost and it was a hit. Many friends and people asked about the pants. It was cool. A little different than the black that everyone has on the slopes. True to size and great quality. I got an online discount which made it even more of a score. February 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great ski pants These pants are stylish and highly functional. They're great as a light weight shell worn over tights. So far they've held up great on the slopes in Minnesota with temperatures as low as 0 degrees F. Plenty of vents are available for when the weather warms up. Lots of pockets too. Great pants. February 16, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Material and Quality Disappointing I used these pants for snowboarding. For reference I am a 34 waist and I purchased a large they fit well I got this size to wear layers. On the first use the stitching in the groin came apart. I repaired it myself to then have no issues with it the next use. However, the next time I used the pants the seam began coming apart on the back of the pant. The material also becomes ripped easily. I fell only a few times during the day and there were multiple rips that you could see starting. The design of the pant and how well it keeps you warm is great however the poor material used is the issue. February 7, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Wet seat These pants seem short wasted (not enough room in crotch). The first day of use was wet snow that melted when it landed on you. After only one ride up the chair lift, my seat was wet. I seemed to be dry everywhere else. February 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Pants These are very warm. All I ever needed on the slopes was a thin base layer and these pants and I was never cold. February 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Men’s Ridge to Run™ II Pant Awesome pants, Fit great good material and sizing was no issue adjustable Velcro sides allow for adjusting, Fast shipping February 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is great! Little did I know one of my ski buddies has the same pants. We are both pleased as they perform well. The short length sizing is just what we both needed. Skied them in 8 degrees and was nice and warm. January 28, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great but... I recently purchased a pair and went snowboarding once, then I used them to shovel snow. I use a belt to keep them secure. When I removed my belt the front left belt loop ripped off the top. I love the pants, there awesome! Just wasn't expecting that to happen my second time using them. January 24, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by can't go wrong for this money My biggest concern while buying pants had always been the length, my size is 32 waist and 30 length; for a short guy like me it's always a challenge to find gear that fit. Columbia offers these pants with short length too and they sit perfect on me. I bought size S/SHORT. Overall the pants are of excellent quality and although there is no padding I found them warm enough while wearing base layer. They are waterproof too that is a desirable feature when skiing in snowfall. For this price you won't find any better, I looked. January 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Room to work with - just what I needed! These pants replaced a pair of another manufacturer's ski pants that were destroyed - my gear gets a lot of action. When I first used these pants I was amazed at the amount of room they offered by using the reflective layer instead of heavier insulation. They're a little baggy, which gives room to move without worrying you're gonna blow a seam in a wipeout (happened to me twice on other pants). First use was on a 5 degree night with just baselayer underneath-cold, especially around the leg vents. Just had them out for a full day of skiing in 27 degree weather with just baselayer and the vents open the whole day- perfect! Good array of pockets, comfortable to wear, reliable and the black print looks great! Probably going to buy a second pair! January 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Warm and windproof Just purchased these pants for walking the dogs. Weather today felt like -14 C with winds of 53 km/h. These pants worked great. Just another walk in the park. Warm and toasty. Great product. Bought them in a larger size to put on over track pants or jeans. I like that they aren't too bulky with the Omni heat insulation. January 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Fit I use this and a base layer and i'm good really like the fact that it reflects my heat December 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like a ski shell for the lower body I got these for ground-based winter activities where I needed a bit of an upgrade from my Passo Alto heat pants. These are made of the same nylon twill Omni Tech fabric as my Columbia Interchange ski jacket. Cinch the velcro tabs down on the waist and they are the heighth of comfort. 34"W, 32"L, and the Large Regular fit perfectly. The gaiters strap securely over my hiking boots. They flex and move pretty well on hikes. The leg vents are phenomenal and very welcome - Omni Heat really gets warm as you get moving. For sedentary activities I would put a fleece pant or long undies beneath. For high-level activities down into the 30's F, these are all I need. Completely water- and snow-proof. Move EXTREMELY well as hikers for being ski pants - not bulky AT ALL. Perfect complement to my winter adventure gear! December 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Snowboard Pants Awesome pants, my favorites by far. Tradewinds Grey looks "sick!' according to my daughter, which I understand to mean 'great'. Size wise: I am 5'7" 180lb with 32" waist & strong legs. Large SHort was what I bought after trying on Med Reg, L Reg, and L Short. The Med Reg fit my waist great and length good, but my thighs would have Hulked out the seams after a couple trips. L Reg was clown-pants long for me and way baggy. L Short was perfect in length and roomy at waist but not too much. Flexibility, look, feel, function... Columbia designers nailed it on these. October 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by A bit long in the legs Have only worn one weekend so far. Very comfortable both in the cold teen degree morning and the low 40s afternoon. I wear 34+ (depends on the slacks :-) with 32 inseam. These are a bit long and come lower on my ski boots than others. Large fits my waist comfortably. The powder cuffs are very tight, which helps protect the batteries for my boot warmers from getting lost. The cargo packets are too well designed to keep snow out, with an extra fold for protection. That also makes getting things in and out a bit difficult. Real test will be tomorrow when skiing temps will be below zero to start. Had difficulty with the "Fit" indicator at top of review. Pants are very slightly small at waist (or I am slightly big) but also long or large in the leg. So I left it at true but with reservations February 28, 2014
