Men's Royce Peak™ Pant is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for travel or home Purchased for a long trip. They are comfortable, durable, easy to launder and look good. They are one of five Columbia pants I'm packing for this trip. Only negative is mesh pockets- prefer more durable material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Casual Pants The Royce Peak Pants are great, they look good, ware great, andare very comfortable. I love these pants for casual ware. They also pair up great with a PFG Tamiami II short sleeve shirt. Columbia rocks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool comfortable and water repellant These pants are cool, comfortable, and repel water well. Im buying another pair in another color so I can wear these all summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants I love these pants. Casual enough for everyday use and nice enough that you could rich in your shirt and wear to nice events. I'm 6'4" 200 pounds. I'm pretty thin for the most part and the 36 waist fit great. I wish more brands would just make a 36 inseam but I can make the 34 inseam work. Super comfortable, definitely going to order the other colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I bought them I had been eyeing these pants for a very long time. Had been too hesitant to pull the trigger on them but I'm glad I did. They have easily become the most comfortable pants I own. I'd been looking for some pants on the slim side, and these pants definitely do the job while still allowing for a lot of flexibility in them. They also breathe very well. Only thing I would say is that I usually have to wear a belt with 32w, but these 32s fit just a little snug.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pocket seams are weak Really great pants, among the best I have ever owned ..........but the pocket seams are weak. Need to provide a more lasting combination of material for pockets and stronger seam stitching, particularly for the rear pockets. Really needs to be more durable. Otherwise a great product that last a long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Royce Peak Pants I have Royce Peak pants in three colors size 34 x 30". I'm 5'6" and 169 lbs. Although the waist just fits, I keep buying them because I like the quality and trim fit look of these pants. I hem them up a couple of inches to wear with my athletic shoes and hiking boots. They also look good enough to wear as casual pants to dinner. P.S I'm currently trying to lose some weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome pants These are awesome pants! The material is pretty lightweight but still seems sturdy and has a nice amount of stretch. I have three pairs of these pants in different colors, and they are very comfortable and functional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built to protection Went to the Chiefs at Steelers game which was pouring rain and I stayed dry with these pants and just the right amount of warmth to keep me in my seat while everyone ran for cover. Buy them cause they are worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Pants that need minimal improvement I own Royce peak pants in multiple colors. The stretch fabric is durable and the cut is functional yet modern; the pants easily fit into semi-formal events, work, hiking, or just daily wear. The water repellency, like all water repellent products, eventually wears out and will have to be renewed, but even soaked the pants dry quickly. I highly recommend these. For me, the fit is true to size and the taper toward the foot gives a slimmer appearance that cannot be beat. I love these pants so much I sew repairs when needed. Another reviewer complained about several features of these pants: the mesh povkets, velcro closures on the back, and the snap. The mesh pockets are sufficient, but I was easily able to tear the fabric during a repair. A slightly stronger mesh would be recommended. Additionally, sewing the back pockets to the seat does not work well with a stretch fabric; eventually the nylon thread gives out, leaving a hole for items stored in your back pockets to slide through. I highly recommend a flap pocket for the next iteration. The velcro closures should be replaced by low profile zippers, but the flap should remain; I succeeded in sewing zippered back pockets to one pair and love the security of the zipper. I highly recommend these pants, they are well worth their price and provide great functionality. I use them when hiking, working outdoors, and around town. The pockets are perfect for my daily carry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite I own three pair of Royce Peak pants and wish I owned three more. They fit well, are very comfortable and really resist getting soiled. I bought the first pair heeding the advice that they fit slightly small but found that to be overstated. That pair is now larger than I would like. Adjusting from that I have found the others to be true to their size and my normal size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Royce Peak Needed replacement for Cool Creek pants I had worn for a long time. The Royce Peak turned out to be much better. The design is improved. The fit and look is much better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from junk pocket fabric, zipper, & snap In 1 year the pocket fabric wears holes - the perforated fabric is a stupid idea. No longevity. The zipper is weak and the store I purchased from says that is the highest complaint they get for these pants. The next highest complaint is the snap. Neither will hold well and NO I am NOT overweight. I never use them without a belt. So my belt takes the stress off the zipper & snap. They are simply POOR quality. I hate that the back pocket velcro will not stay fastened when you sit. Stupid design ideas all. T

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice but... The pants are nice and fit well. Only problem is the threads on the back pockets have already come loose after only one week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorites Bought these pants for a big bike trip and liked them so much I ended up getting a second pair. They're comfortable, look good and fit great. The pant legs fit well enough to not get into the bike chain either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite pants These pants are super comfortable and functional! They're just a bit tight in the waist. I'm 6'3" 200 lbs athletic build and ideal pant size for me is 33 waist x 34 inseam. The 34" waist is a bit too snug so the snap button comes undone sometimes, but I still love the pants. I'm going to order another pair in a size larger and different color. One thing to consider is that there is a zipper pocket on the right thigh that I didn't notice in any of the pictures. I wasn't a fan at first but it's actually pretty convenient!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good outdoor pants Run a little small in the waist for the size. Dries quickly, sheds mud. Very comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seams Rub I really like the fabric and the fit of the pants. I normally wear a 34x32 and that size fit perfect (6', 165 lbs., flat stomach). The legs are a little snug as compared to the ROC pant but that works fine for me. The only downside is the seams at the bottom of the front zip pockets tend to rub my legs irritating my skin. Not a huge deal but I use them more for shorter hikes now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product These are great pants to own. I wear them to office as well as for all outdoor activities. There water resistance and have replace most of my jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants but big inventory problems These are the best all purpose pants (outdoors, travel, casual, even work) pants I have owned. Very comfortable fit, though they are clearly a 'slim' fit, which I prefer. But they remain comfortable and have 'give' to the fabric. They wear and travel well. Quite stain resistant. Wash and dry, come out ready to wear. But Columbia seems unable to manage their inventory. They have been out of 32W in most colors for several months now and out in many other sizes also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Pants! These pants are super versatile, move well hiking, look nice with a button down for dinner out, and comfortable to lay around the house. They defy stains, wash up great. Husband has 2 pair and just bought 2 more. He's 6'4", 210 and the 36"x34" fit well. Could use a little more length if they offered a 36" inseam.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Hiking Pant I bought one pair for a hiking trip to Ireland. They are the perfect weight for 60 degree day with a chance of rain. They kept me dry through light rain as well. I had to order a size large around the waist, but still worked well with or without a base layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just wow! I just wear this pants for 30 minutes walk to work under under heavy rain, shook the pants a little and wow, absolutly dry again. I am buying more of this pants diffent colors. Mine ever blue bought on sale for 40 dollars. Dont worry and buy it and you are going to absolutly love it .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pants! Buy them now. These pants are simply the best pants that I have ever owned! I used to like the Columbia Cool Creek pants-but they were discontinued. These pants are those pants, but the problems have been fixed. The pockets are deeper, they are true to length and the side pocket is deeper. The stretch material is perfect. I have literally taught backpacking on a weekend and wore these pants Monday morning-no washing-to teach in the classroom! Well worth the cost of no ironing and wrinkling. I bought (2) pairs and will probably get a few more. Problems: I am a classic 33-30 and they only come in 34, which means I always have to wear a belt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great multi-purpose pants These pants have been great for hiking and outside work! The material is very breathable and keeps you cool. So far I have only worn these on days up to the mid 80s, but have been comfortable. There is one seam that runs across the pants above the front of the knee that can be a little irritating, but I would definitely still recommend these. These are also refined enough to wear in an office setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sport pant I've found These are the best sports pants I have found. They fit perfectly, have a modest amount of stretch so they maintain their looks, and comfort, in long periods of wear - tough enough for outdoor field work but nice looking for casual wear. The side zipper pocket is perfect for the iPhone, and I especially like the fact that, without the cargo pants pockets, these are sharp.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect! 1st I have to say that I have 2 pairs of the Royce Peak pants and wear them all the time, But...These pants are apparently the successor to Columbia's Cool Creek Stretch Pants that were better. I have 3 pair of those and use them for casual, hiking, climbing and even most of my construction/home projects. They were fabulous. Last through all kinds of abuse and shed or clean easily from most all materials, the only stain one pair has is from expanding foam, which destroys most anything. I won't wear jeans anymore, (6 months breaking them in and just when they get right, they rip out!# The main difference between these versions of Columbias is that the new Royce Peaks have too much of a nylon feel, #and sound) when wearing. Its a slight downfall to an otherwise perfect pair of pants. Columbia, PLEASE go back to the Cool Creek stretch material

Rated 5 out of 5 by from favorite pants These are my all time favorite pants. I have three pair and the shorts. I wear them to work, hiking and biking. Amazing amount of stretch in such a robust fabric. Perfect trim cut. Zippered back pockets would be the only way to improve them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent golf pant Very comfortable for cool weather golfing and transition very nicely to any after golf casual activity. They look very casual on the course and not so much like dress slacks! Very water and stain resistant, just beads and wipes off! Very slimming. Love the stretch material. I bought them for golf, now wear them all the time and are my favorite pants!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A quality product, but not for the fat-legged Everything about these pants is excellent, but the legs are slim and feel a bit tight when bending the knees. I still like them but would welcome future easing of the leg width, just a bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants These are positively the best pants that I have ever owned. I constantly bump into things, and these do not mark up. They are rugged but they can also be worn as casual pants. I feel secure with my wallet zipped up in the side pocket. The other day I was at a diner and a waiter spilled soda on my pants. The soda beaded up and wiped right off! I love these pants! Very durable and good looking, and of course very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good pants Love how these pants fit well in the waist, even at the larger waist sizes, without making the legs into huge barrels. They are trim through the leg, and not massively baggy as other pants tend to get with the larger waist sizes. Love them.
Date published: 2014-11-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I purchased 3 pairs of these pants. Don't even think about it, buy more than one pair too. I can wear these ANYWHERE outdoors, in ANY condition. They are that versatile. I wear these golfing too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too complex and constricting around the knee. Great idea for pants. The string fabric stretches horizontally in most places, but the area in front of the knee is oriented to stretch vertically. Unfortunately there are problems. 1. The knee is too high by 2 to 3 inches so when you bend to actually do something your kneecap is under the heavy seam at the bottom of the knee patch. 2. The complex seams around the knee make it very draggy on long underwear and even your bare skin. So the pants feel very constricted even though they are stretchy. 3. The pants are a bit narrow in the leg. For some they will feel tight around the thighs. Too bad they did not simplify the pants and forget all the ineffective complexity around the knee. Horizontal stretch around the knee work fine, no need for the vertical stretch patch. I do not recommend these. Get something without the thick irritating seams around the complex and too-high knee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tactical pants around!!! Fit true to size, very comfortable with plenty of stretch. Look great. I'm a tactical shooter, these pants fit all transitions from range to store, to home. I will buy more. Thanks Columbia, you're the best!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from durable in extreme conditions I use the ROYCE PEAK to build mountain bike trails in the Florida swamp. The extremes of heat, wet, sweat, mud have not harmed the fabric. After a long day in the mud, the pants wash up nicely. The slightly stretchy fabric allows freedom of movement while bending over and squatting down. My only complaints are: 1) the narrow leg fits a bit tight on my muscular legs; 2) the cuff could be a bit wider to fit better over work or hiking boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite travel pant I do a lot of travel and these pants are great. I like the Velcro back pocket for some security, as well as the side pocket. The fabric is water resistant and the garment hangs out and looks great with minimal wrinkles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Royce Peak Pants These pants are comfortable, sized accurately, and appear to be very durable. Just got them last week, so we'll see as time passes, but these may become my favorite casual pants. If so, I'll be ording several more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pants These are great pants that fit well. They are very durable and I have been using them to commute via bicycle to the university and rock climb with them a lot as well. They are very versatile, but I think if there wasn't a separate knee gusset/patch they would have a little more versatility, allowing them to be dressed up or used for a hike. Overall great pants with a comfortable fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Omni shield pants This is the second pair of the Omni-shield pants I have purchased. A great casual pants to wear and even better when being very active - hiking, golfing, etc. They look good and feel great and are easy to take on the road - no wrinkles or special care needed.
