Men’s Ridge to Run™ II Pant is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 92.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from solid pants Quality is solid. Definitely keeps you warm in cold conditions, but vents also work well when it gets warm out. I like the sewn-in boot guards on the lower leg, to protect against wear/tear (for those that will use these for skiing).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Camo style I own both the Deep Water blue and black buffalo camo in M. Been skiing the resorts when upper lifts are closed due to high winds. Toasty as can be in these pants w merino wool bade layer. I also like the adjustable velcro side/waist adjustments for apres 'big lunch' skiing. Ok, not for that, but waist is infinately adjustable. Camo print also allows me to sneek up on powder stashes more easily now. Just sayin Get some!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent, not great These pants work fine but I question their durability and effectiveness in true snow conditions. I'm 5'10, 170 lbs. I went with Medium - Short based on other reviews - thanks for that because the length was perfect for skiing. I normally wear a 33 waist so figured the 34 waist would be ideal for tucking in a layer or two. I found the waist to actually be a little snug. It worked well enough but if I needed more layers it'd be tight. They are warm enough, but I used them on some bluebird ski days. Anything other than GoreTex is not truly waterproof based on my experience. Nylon and Polyester are not waterproof - even though these are treated to be such. But since I moved away from the Northwest, I only get to ski once or twice a year. So the price point was closer to what I was willing to pay (on sale for $90). They should not cost more than that. If it had been truly snowy or wet conditions, I doubt these would hold up all that well. They're not bad, don't get me wrong. They're just not great, hence my ratings. They're a good Columbia product. But if I could ski regularly I would definitely get a better pair and would go with GoreTex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the pockets 6'2" 200 pounds, 35 inch waist....large regular is a Smidge big in the waist, and Smidge short on the length, but generally works out ok. I've been wearing them over jeans which takes care of them feeling big and the built in gaitor over boot stretches down enough that it works for me. Good and warm, and great pockets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High up on the Ridge Recently went snowboarding and these pants were great. I was warm the whole time and really loved the inside material. I had zero issues with any moisture getting in. Overall they definitely are better than my previous pants. For me, they ran a little large. Definitely check the sizing chart. I was surprised what waist size was considered XL and XXL. The only knock I have on the pants at all is they aren't as red as I thought they would be. They're way too orange for my liking!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised! Great pair of pants! Spent half a day in 20 degree temps with pouring snow and never got wet or cold in the least bit. Only wore a thin base layer and it was plenty. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Snowboard Pants Ever! The best pants I have ever used. I have only used one time but can tell they will last me along time. It was 16 degrees the day I went and only had a light base layer on but they kept me nice and warm .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding-best value anywhere Have been wearing these pants for 6 years, as part of my uniform. Most years, over 100 days each season, and have been cold and never got wet. As long as they keep making them, I'll keep buying...
Date published: 2016-08-09
Rated 4 out of 5 by from True to size After reading other's comments about sizing on this product I decided to order the larger size because people said that they needed a larger size and they ran small. Well I guess those people are in denial about thier waist size, because I ordered the extra large for my waist 36. It was massive and I was floating in it even with the pull tabs pulled as tight as possible and a pair of cArgo shorts under it. Good quality pants, but I need to return and get a size large which I should have done in the first place since those are for waist 36. Go with Columbia's sizing chart and you should be fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressed! I bought them because I want the "short" inseem size. I was looking at ski pants twice as expensive but took a chance because of that option. They fit good. The keep me warm I wore them when it was zero out. I added a mid weight long underwear and was perfect. I like the scuff shield on the inside of the ankles. More importantly on the back pant leg. Best of all was the price! Only negative- the pocket stitching came undone. I had to sew it back up myself

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable light weight ski pant I'm 6'2", 185 lbs., 32" inseam, 34-36" waist, large fit me perfectly! The pants move throughout all ranges of skiing, without binding! The weight is light, but strong! On a torrential rain day, these pants stayed dry & leakproof! Very impressively! They are going to LaGrave, France, this spring!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheap thing, poor quality Good looking and warm, but that's it. The inseam and waist are way too wide. Got wet a little bit when I snowboarding in rainy day. The Omni-Heat always peel off and stick on my base layer.

Date published: 2016-02-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2016-02-02
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2015-12-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
