Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pants These pants are classy and accommodating. The fabric as soft and breathable, yet sturdy. Columbia is classy, I like the small details such as the little Columbia sign on the cargo zipper pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KILAMIJARO pants I bought these pants initially to use while climbing mount kilamijaro in Africa. I used them the other day to hike in to see how they would do. I really liked having the option to use as pants or shorts. The pants come with adjustable belt Which helps. The pants are really lightweight and keep you feeling cool on those hot hikes. They also provide spf50 protection if sunburn is a problem like it is for me. I highly suggest picking up a pair of these. Very high quality you can expect from Columbia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pants Bought these for my Boy Scout. Right color, worked well on a 20 mile hike. Rained and was knee deep in a gator infested swamp. These pants held up like a champ. The material is quick dry and light weight. We use these for long hikes because they're easy to pack, light weight and easy to dry on the trail. They have the option to convert to shorts; something only a young man would like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great pant My husband said immediately they were so comfortable and wouldn't take them off. He hikes and desperately needs the lower leg to come off. This serves him well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fishing Pants I love the fit, the style, and the quality. I just went fishing and got extremely wet do to the choppy waters. By the time we got to the dock, I was completely dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Father's Day My father had a pair of these and absolutely love them! It says they're fabulous for travel! So, the bottom second pair. Now that my husband has seen them, he wants a pair for himself!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional pants I love the convertible pants. Being able to select inseam length is important for me. As a long-legged woman, I mostly but guys pants because I can get them long enough. These pants for me run a little smaller than expected. The waist is not adjustable, and I wonder why? In previous versions it was. Guess I will have to use the belt to cinch the waist. I went one size up because others also felt the sizing is in the smaller side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for tropics Great pants for hot humid tropical weather. I find them quick drying and feel cool to the skin. I like the L and R labels on the lower leg zipper pulls, nice touch. As shorts they still look good, not goofy like some other convertible pants out there. I wish the cargo pockets were more like a bellows pocket, but really not a big deal. (Besides, bellows pockets would provide a snag point for bushes and thorns on trail) All in all I like them a lot, I have multiple pairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great outdoor pant! If you are looking for a pant that is great in the outdoors than look no further. These pants are incredibly durable, lightweight, breathable and comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bugs & weeds stay away When hiking here in Minnesota out in the woods I like venturing off the trails into the brush for awhile along the steams. There are allot of nasty bugs and weeds I encounter. These convertible pants keep them out and me cool with the lightweight breathable material. If they get wet they dry quickly. Size wise I encountered the 34 to be a bit small so went with the 36 waist. This size works well for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried them & immediately bought more Thinner than some other brands but fit is great and love the rear velcro pockets and zip side pocket. I do wish there were zippers at the ankles for easier removal when converting to shorts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slim Fit Am 5'11", 180 lbs. Wear a 31" waist in jeans, so ordered a 32" pant. Was quite tight at the waist and very slim along thighs. Was good quality, just too slim fit for my build.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and perfect length These pants fit both boys quite well. The length was perfect for both with one being 5'9" and the other 6'2". The elastic in the waist and zip-off legs are great features as they grow. They also like the quick drying material for their summer activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pants!! These pants/shorts are the bees knees!! Comfortable, perfect fit and very stylish. U can put them on wrinkled and soon after they will b smooth. I love everything abt them. I have another pair but they do not convert into shorts like these. I highly recommend these pants to anyone!! Get them u won't regret it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 years going strong These pants have been through the best and worst conditions and they preform flawlessly. If you're looking for a pair of pants that you can wear in 90+ degree heat and still feel cool these are the pants for you. Despite receiving a few cuts from my camp knife and the occasional burn hole they have not ripped. The material is very tear resistant and once they get a slight tear they do not split. Going to order a new pair for this season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Year Round Nomad/ One Pair of Pants I'm retired and currently travel full time with a carry-on back pack. Prior to departing, a friend with multiple Pacific Crest Trail, Continental Divide Trail, and Appalachian trail expeditions recommended these pants. I wore them from August of last year until this February continuously until I returned home to visit family. During this trip I gave away my heavy shorts and other pair of pants to lighten my load but kept my "go to" pants. What I love about these pants are that you can wear them for weeks at a time and they don't look dirty or "feel" grimy. I would wash them every three weeks. I wore them on my El Camino Trek in Spain to visiting Vietnam these last 7 months. Despite my continuous daily trekking, the Silver Ridge pants show no wear. even though I would overload the zipper leg pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pants!!! My boyfriend at the time was a total "jeans" guy, but with an upcoming hiking trip, I wanted to find him something more lightweight. Though he was reluctant at first to try these pants, he was raving about them by the end of the trip. He loves how comfortable they are and how easy it is to switch between pants and shorts; absolutely fabulous pants!!!
Date published: 2017-04-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look The pants are lightweight, which makes them easy to pack in a suitcase. They look great, which means you can even wear them to a nice restaurant; no one would know that they can be easily converted to shorts by zippers situated just below the knees. Highly recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pant Option Wanted a good fitting pant for hiking and camping in the mountains of AZ. These fit the bill perfectly, they are functional and comfortable without being baggy like other convertible pants I've tried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants Really like These zip offs & am very happy to find in 'blue'. This company has excellent clothing!
Date published: 2017-04-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from just what I was looking for Unfortunantly I can barely fit in them. I have other clothes from other companies that are the same size and fit baggy. I can barely get these buttoned. I was so excited to get these, but will have to wait until I can fit in them. Probably should send them back, but don't want all the hassle.
Date published: 2017-03-29
Rated 2 out of 5 by from who sized these things???? I am a rather slim adult male who comfortably wears 34" waist pants from any company. These pants are easily an inch and a half too small around the waist and more than that through the seat and thighs. I now have to spend money for return shipping. The sizing is so misleading, it prevents the pants from being functional. I can't speak to the quality, because I can't wear them to try them out.
Date published: 2017-03-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific pants for active people I have several pairs and wear them almost daily for cycling. They are the lightest, coolest pants for that kind of vigorous work-out. You can turn them into shorts if it gets too warm. They are also just warm enough to wear in weather that's too cold for shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic travel pants I am retired now and started to travel monthly with my wife..We wanted to only bring 1 back pack each carry on. I bought 1 pair to try a 4 day vacation. It was the only pair of pants I brought,.. no shorts...We flew out of Toronto when it was -15C going south to 30C weather...It was wonderful to go from pants to shorts on the plane. I spent every day in the Ocean,..the zippered pocket was excellent for money, visa etc.Lots of excellent pockets for cell phones etc.. The pants dry very quickly, are very light in weight..the zippers work very well with no fuss...Just a excellent product..You can easily and quickly hand wash in the sink if you only bring one pair on vacation..I purchased 3 more pairs all different colours..I now have light tan, dark tan and grey and are the only pants..shorts I bring when I travel or wear on the boat. I also purchased the light windbreaker with hood tucked in the neck made from lightweight material as well.same qualities, fast drying, rain proof..Columbia in my opinion is a bit on the expensive side but the quality is worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pants for the purpose My father is an amputee, and I bought these pants for him in grill, tusk & gravel. He liked the fit and feel of them so much that he wore them to Bible study the morning after he received them. Traveling in the car for several hours is now more comfortable and convenient if he has to adjust or remove his prosthetic leg. He is very happy with his new trousers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. True to size pants. Zip feature is easy to re-attach. Quality Columbia product. I them for casual wear and speed hiking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Travel I bought these to replace a competitors product after losing a lot of weight. The Silver Ridge pants had much better sizing, material is a higher quality, and they fit much better than my old pair. The higher quality zippers make them really easy to change while sitting in steerage at the back of a plane. The only negative is that Columbia does not offer shorter inseams. Sorry Columbia, I'm vertically challenged, and a 28" or 29" inseam would have made these perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding in a wind array of situations Just wore these to the Reindeer Run in Minnesota at 5 degrees. I had a base layer plus these and it was perfect. This summer I wore these in lieu of shorts to keep the mosquitos and I was very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hiking and TRAVEL pants Pants are great for hiking as they are non-restrictive . I take them on all my trips with me. They can be used as every day wear, but are nice enough to wear out to dinner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy them! I bought these pants because I wanted something different than jeans or chinos. I'm really glad I got these. They fit perfect and look stylish. Got the Tusk color and wore it for three days straight. Enjoyed them so much I got another pair in Gravel. Pockets are easy to get to. My only gripe is the Velcro but it shouldn't fail me any time soon. These are great for when I run around town doing errands or on my way to college.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Convertables These are my new favorite pair of convertable pants. Great quality and fit. I really like the comfort waist on these. I will order another pair before long. Really like the grill color too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great convertible pants I was a big fan of the REI Sahara convertible pants but lately they stopped including the belt and it feels like the quality is dropping. These pants don't have the side zips the Saharas do but I think the overall quality makes up for it. The individual pant legs have L and R on the zipper tags which is a huge help. I've worn them on several day-hikes and also love using them for airplane travel.
