Keep Making These Great Pants!!
DON'T LOSE THE RECIPE!!! My first pair of Roc's served me for years. The are now like the Oliver Wendell Holmes poem of The Wonderful One Horse Shay ( it lasted 100 years to a day and then went to pieces all at once). after months of searching in stores, I was so grateful to discover i could order the Roc pants on-line AND they are the same and better! Same great fabric, fit and construction...AND ... a better waist snap and cell phone/ pen pocket. I ordered two and am thrilled with them.

A Home for my Phone...
I have been wearing Columbia Roc pants for over 10 years. They wear like iron, wash like a dream, and best of all have a pocket for my cell phone...I have never had an issue with these pants. I have in my closet these and the Ultimate Roc's.

comfortable IF the button stayed snapped
a snap button above the zipper instead of a traditional button? what were they thinking. No matter what size you are, they stay snapped until you sit down then "pop". I would return but I already cut the tags and worn them (once).

Great features, lasting quality
My husband bought a pair of these many years ago (5+) and refused to throw them away until I just replaced them with a new pair that he absolutely loves. Great fit, comfortable, great quality -- loves the front hidden zipper pocket. thank you for producing such good quality merchandise.. waiting for his his size available in the darker color.

ROC Pants Rock!
These pants are very functional and durable. Can be worn for dress or just casual.
May 30, 2013
Excellent fabric which is very convenient.
Excellent goods. I love Colombia. Always I carry it. I will continue to use further. Thanks.

Comfortable Casual Pants
I found the ROC pants very comfortable. They are cut full with plenty of room. I plan on using these pants as part of my casual wardrobe. I found the fit a bit generous although it says they run a bit small in the description. The fabric seems to be good for both warm and cold.
May 15, 2013
These things run ridiculously small. The sizing is also inconsistent. My buying two pr, I now have a wide array of sizes I can diet or expand into- NOT what I was looking for, for an upcoming 3 week trip

Great for cool season travel
This is my third pair of ROC pants. I like them for travel as they are rugged but can go for most city travel as well.
I liked the first pair I had but the seam-zipper pocket was too low on the leg, so my wallet was very visible and in my way. The second pair had this pocket perfectly placed behind the front pocket. These were unfortunately 2 inches smaller in the waist than they should be.
The pair I have now are 2 inches bigger on the label and fit right. The zip pocket is still well placed.
Be aware that no pocket is pick-pocket-proof. At least not on the Rome, Italy underground.

These are the best fitting most well made pants. They really are about perfect. But I gotta vent: there is this thing that ALL pants makers do - not just Columbia - with the little keys pouch within the right, front pocket. When that little inner pocket is at the bottom of the main pocket (like they all are) it's more than just useless; it keeps your keys out of reach when you're rummaging around amongst the other junk that's in there. If that inner pocket were 2" higher than the bottom of the big pocket, then you could find your keys immediately because they're held above the other junk. I don't know why that's such a mystery.
May 9, 2013
Same as the last pair
I purchased these pants for travel in Europe. They fit well (true to size) and are the same size as a pair I bought 5 years ago (a minor miracle these days). Very functional and comfortable.

Love The ROC
These pants fit perfect (I'm a 36-32). They are the quality I expected and the phone pocket has been widened enough to accept my Moto Razor with no problem. I love the security pocket for holding my pocket knife. I'm glad I took the leap and ordered on-line as I couldn't find any in the retail stores I shopped. I'm happy!
April 15, 2013
Been wearing these pants for years. Reduction in quality with lighter weight fabric. Inconsistent fit between the two pair of exact size I purchased. Fit was the biggest issue.
April 14, 2013
Excellent pants; baggy crotch.
This is my second pair of these pants in this color (khaki) They wear great and are a great fit and very comfortable. I must note though, that they're a great fit after I made a slight alteration. I turned the pants inside out and sewed a one inch seam from knee to knee. This helped tremendously with the baggy crotch and overall fit and look of the pants.
April 8, 2013
Big & Baggy
Well made. Will last forever.
This is about the 8th pair of ROC's I purchased.
The others fit well. These are much bigger in the
waist than the others of same size, and very baggy.
Item was labelled "Full", something not indicated
when ordering. Are there other options, like regular fit,
or slim fit? Would help to know.
March 30, 2013
These are the most comfortable pants I've ever purchased! Don't buy just one pair get as many as you can afford.... Trust me!
March 22, 2013
Perfect for Travel
These pants are perfect for traveling. Remove the small cord from the zipper and the side pocket becomes almost completely invisible. I travel overseas without a wallet, just a money belt. I put some spending money in the hidden pocket and don't have to worry about pick pockets. They are also very easy to wash, are comfortable, and they're rugged. They also look good and can be worn for hiking or a casual night out. I always have at least two pair.
I am not a spokesperson for Columbia, just a very satisfied customer.
March 21, 2013
Had an older version of the same pant that I like a little better...better fit, better construction, but this is still a good product.
February 23, 2013
I had locally purchased a pair of these pants for my husband and he just loved them. So glad to be able to get them on line. They wash beautifully, and he says they are the most comfortable pants he has had in a long time.
February 17, 2013
Well constructed, good fit, if a little large in the waist, otherwise a great pair of pants.
February 4, 2013
Best pants you can find
These are the best pants you can find. They are classy enough when ironed to wear just about anywhere. I use these for work and play. I work in a greenhouse environment and never know where my day is going to take me. These pants keep up and are tough enough that I don't have to worry about ripping or tearing them. They take forever to wear out. Can't beat them. Love the look, it is classic. Trust me, you will not regret these pants

waist runs small
I've purchased many other Columbia pants which all fit true to size. The ROC runs about an inch too small in the waist and the next size up will just be too big for me.
January 2, 2013
I had a pair and order another because I like the fit. They're very comfortable and a nice alternative to jeans
January 1, 2013
The pants are great.
It was impossible to determine the color from the 1x1 color patch and was not the color I would have chosen.
December 31, 2012
best of both worlds
in environmental health field so work with clients in the office and the field---over the years, I used your pants because the durability in the field and style in the office.--I have noticed a slight change in fabric in that the earlier versions remained "sharper" than the current version. The only complaint would be that the pants with nylon zippers have a shorter life span due to zipper failure than those pants with the standard metal zipper. I would a recommend the pants as a good combination of style and durability.

Columbia ROC Pant
These pants are comfortable, fashionable and functional. Great for casual business or weekend outdoor life. Extra pockets are great for all those products we seem to need in our lives today. I have several pair of these pants and they are my favorites.
December 26, 2012
I own mostly ROC pants or other Columbia styles of pants. The fit and look are great. They do tend to wear a little quickly but still look good and can be worn long after the wear starts to show. Unfortunately, the actual waist size seems to be only roughly related to the size specified when you order. (Ignore the slider on the left as there was no choice for "N.A.") Sometimes a 33 will be small and the next time, 33 is like two sizes bigger. I have returned probably 75% of my orders over the years. This is frustrating, time-consuming and costly. I hope Columbia will try to fix this problem for their mail order customers.
December 19, 2012
ROC pant didn't rock
decent pants, but thin material required major ironing after washing & doesn't appear to be very heavy duty.
The side pocket won't hold a cell phone, as others do. It's really 2 small narrow pockets for a flashlight or pocket knife.
Would return if i could....

Columbia Roc Pants: The Perfect Pants
Columbia Roc pants are the only pants my husband will wear because he loves the fit, the wearability and comfort, how well & long they last, the earth tone colors that matches any color shirt he chooses to wear, and, the extra pockets. He wears these pants to work, on weekends, and, even with blazers/jackets to dress-up.
He thinks Columbia Roc pants are the perfect pair of pants, period.
December 14, 2012
Just Ok Pants
I ordered size 44 - 30's, so I am not a small guy. The button does not stay secured like the Lander Pants do and they are tight unlike the Lander Pants which are also made by Columbia.
November 27, 2012
Great casual pants
This is the third pair of these pants that my husband has. They are casual, but ok for golf on cooler days. He usually wears a 30 length, but got 31 due to a little shrinkage on previous pairs.
November 27, 2012
Good Fit For Me
I found these Columbia ROC pants at a local store. I was quite certain I wanted this type of pant but the store only offered one or two options for colors and, unfortunately they also didn't have my size so I came home and went online. I found a good deal at Columbia's website and they of course had the color I was interested in as well. The pant is very likable in that it is not quite "jean" like and not quite "dress" pant. It is a great in-between type work pant for both indoors and outdoors. I would recommend this pair of pants for comfort alone. Good job Columbia.
November 20, 2012
Deep pockets, strong material
My husband loves these pants. True to size, washes great, long lasting.
November 18, 2012
Great travel pants
The Velcro pockets keep keys, wallet, and travel docs secure. They look great and feel great too.
November 18, 2012
I have worn these pants for 10 years and have tried may others but have found nothing to compare with the durability. I like the fact that they also come in a 33 waist.
November 4, 2012
Flax Color Mens Roc Pant
I like the fit and the comfortable material and extra pocket etc
November 2, 2012
ROC II Pants
Only thing I would change is on the 40 waist and above is a higher rise and longer zipper.
October 24, 2012
I ordered two pairs of these pants and had to immediately send them back. I have had many pants from Columbia before and have always been a happy customer. However I ordered a 34" inseam on these pants and received pants labeled with a 34" inseam. The problem is that both pairs actually had a 36" inseam. Not very good workmanship or quality control if you ask me. Beware.
October 16, 2012
this product used poor quality snaps and fabric
the snap will not hold with even the slightest pressure. I've had this product in past and the snap was much larger and held when you put pressure on it like sitting down. The fabric was very light and wrinkled easily. The quality of these pants have really gone down. I have had these pants in the past and they were very rugged and looked nice.
October 12, 2012
I returned the first pair because I ordered a size 40 waist, but the ones I received measured size 39 waist. I returned them. The second pair I just received has no button and button hole on the waist band. I cancelling my order.
I purchased four of these pants two years ago and they've been great. My recent orders are very disappointing. I shall not order more of these.
September 30, 2012
Side Pocket will not hold cell phone.
Bought these in hope that side pocket would hold cell phone like the Lander pants, but I was greatly disappointed.
September 26, 2012
Tough enough for Afghanistan
The perfect Khaki for work or war. Flying on Blackhawks open door, or telling them what it's like in the boardroom. These Pants are all I wear. The pen and glasses case side pocket is the selling point for me.
September 19, 2012
Excells as casual pant
Zippered pocket excellent for money & credit card wallet. Pouch in front pocket used for cellphone. I keep my keys in my left pocket. Feel of material and sizing is giving and comfortable, not loose and baggy or too tight.
September 5, 2012
I currently own 11 pairs of the R.O.C. pant. They are all the same size and all fit. This last pair did not fit. It fit as if it was an inch or two smaller than the other pairs.
On the plus size it seems you have gone back to metal zippers. This is good as I have had to replace two plastic zippers which you had been using.
The cost of returning merchandise which doesn't fit as previous merchandise is just to costly.
September 5, 2012
pants are very comfortable. have a nice fit. I like the side zip pocket as a more secure place to keep my wallet.
it would be nice if these pants were offered in a 33 length.
August 27, 2012
Good travel pants
Its the little touches that make these my favorite pair of pants. Good for work/travel. Cotton feel but lighter than jeans, zipper pocket fits a passport, sub pocket prevents my cellphone from wandering around.
August 23, 2012
good product, but hard to find
It's difficult to find a good selection of ROC pants in the local stores for larger guys, so I have resorted to ordering directly from Columbia. That's not my first choice since the online Columbia store is a bit pricier than retail stores and other online operations, but I love these pants.
I think that I've been buying and wearing them since Columbia started making them. Great material and construction. Tend to shrink up too much with repeated washings. They usually get too small before I wear them out. Please keep making these for the big & tall crowd.
August 21, 2012
Not quite right
My husband purchased these pants in a 42 waist. He liked them, they looked nice, but they were a little snug in the waist, so he tried the 44 waist. The waist fit right, but there is too much fabric in the seat, and the legs are quite large. If you look at the build of the average Americn male, he gets thick in the middle, but that doesn't mean his legs are growing. The same goes for Columbia shorts. The legs are unduly large compared to the men wearing them. I miss the shorts you made 5-6 years ago that fit in the waist but didn't have large leg openings. So the three star rating factors in the good quality, but disproportional sizing.
August 19, 2012
Awesome, comfortable pants
Very comfortable pants. I am always hesitant to buy pants without trying them on, but these fit much better than expected. The fabric feels very durable--almost like denim without the look of denim. I wear these in the office on casual days or on the boat. Great product!
August 14, 2012
Columbia ROC Pants
These are good pants for work or everyday wear when you need comfort and business casual in a industrial environment. The gray color seemed to shrink in length a bit after washing but the other colors atayed true to size after washing. I really like these pants. They do wrinkle just a bit bit but unless you wear them as in a more business than causual enviornment there fine to wash and go. Good weekend work or hike pans to. I use them at work for durability and pockets/pen thigh setup.
