Rated 5 out of 5 by Great investment! Buy these every few years for scout camp, and they're still in good shape to pass down when they've been outgrown. Great basic convertible pant. May 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome pants I highly recommend any outdoorsman to have these pants in their wardrobe. I've had lots of the regular silver ridge pNts but the zip off option to change these into shorts is a must May 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Craftsmanship/quality fabric These convertible pants are beautifully built. Even the leg zipper functions perfectly converting to slacks or shorts. Fabric is strong and resists snags and pulls. My husband and I have 4 colors but we would love to see them in black next season! April 27, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Zip-off pants, Poor belt I love zip off or convertible pants. I have many pairs from North Face and EMS and REI. Just bought 2 Columbia "Kestral Ridge" from Columbia outlet on Long island. It's the same as the Silver Ridge I think. I ended up paying $27.99 after all the sales. Great price if you can get. Nice features, UPF=50 is very nice. Nice weight. Probably dries in minutes. Probably not too warm in cold temps. Too bad the pant leggings does not have ankle zippers to help get on/off with boots on. Also always good to have zippered side pockets to secure things. It has one. But biggest complaint is the flimsy nylon web belt. The web belt is thin, lightweight, and very flimsy. Don't get me wrong, it IS strong enough for any fat belly, but I'll have to buy a better web belt for these pants that is thicker and beefier. March 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tough, but lightweight I wore these pants while doing invasive plant removal in south Florida's summer. They kept my legs protected from thorns, poisonous plants, and the sun. Extremely lightweight, but they are built very well. I destroyed many other brands of pants doing this work, but these lasted me the whole time I was down there. They fit me very well, but I do have larger quads and calves so they would be a bit loose on a normal sized person March 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightweight, excellent fit Exactly what I was looking for; lightweight, will dry quickly, and should pack down small. Fits my frame (5'8", 148lb) really well. January 28, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Silver Ridge Convertible Pants They seem like they are going to be good pants, very light. January 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extremely Comfortable These are the most comfortable dress pants I have ever owned. January 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by you must allways make these pants I own 4 pairs of your shorts they are great, when I saw these pants they were same design and material as the shorts I had to have them. live in vegas and in winter these pants are perfect cause it never gets super cold. I realize these pants turn into shorts but your real shorts are so good and length is good I will keep buying your shorts also January 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pants This pants are great and they dry real quick. January 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by All in One Great for cool mornings and unzip to shorts later in day when it gets warmer January 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Now I Have All The color Very Nice I Live Up In The Every green State,Washington. I Have where Then When It's Been Cold,Wind.The Pants Are Great For All A Round Fun. December 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for sun and blood of fishing I wear these when running walleye charters on Lake Erie. The fishing gets fast and furious at times and walleye will bleed all over you and the boat. Spray a little prewash on heavy spots and then launder as usual and it washes right out. As for comfort, I will start at 4am as long pants - switch to shorts later in morning and if still on the lake at noon - back to long pants to protect from sun. These are a little slimmer cut on the legs. If you like a more loose cut, look at the Blood and Guts Convertible Pant. December 27, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by This a great convertible pant I like this pant and this is for have a new color December 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love the Silver Ridge Convertible pants I have a pair of gray ones, for almost 2 years. I wear them year round and often use the zip off feature to get to shorts (warmer weather). When it rains, the material is awesome - not water proof, but it repels a bit and dries so darn fast! So these fossil colored pants I just bought, they seem just a tad thinner (material) and the belt and belt loops seem to be just a bit different than the gray ones. Also the waist of 34" seems larger on the Fossil than with the gray. But otherwise they fit the same and function the same. Like them a lot. December 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Almost a year round choice I mostly wear these in the summer, due to the thin material, and the fact you can turn them into shorts. I also wear them when I am expecting to get wet from rain, as they dry out so fast, so they come in handy in both the spring and fall. In the winter, I will wear them around the house because they are so light and unrestrictive. For cold weather however, I switch to something thicker and warmer. I also like the color selection, and have been wearing these for several years now. I just recently replaced my old for new, and was shocked to see no real color loss, even after several years of wearing and many many washes. December 14, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A little small From what I seen and felt they were a good product. I had to send them back though. Too small. I'm a 36W 30L, but I found them a bit tight. Leg length was spot on though. October 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding Quality Outstanding Quality Very light material Very durable I wear these while commercial fishing on the Chesapeake Bay in the summer time. Well worth the money. October 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by First Try was good Had the first hike with these last week for about 13 miles....did very well. My size was the 32/30. I had ordered a 32/32 just in case the 30s were too short, but they were not, so kept the 32/30. They were very comfortable, had plenty of flexibility while walking and climbing, and very lite...would order again. October 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice convertible Worth buying on sale. I expected it to be little bit thicker but is thin suitable only for summer weather. It is water resistant and feels light. Packable pant September 30, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by pant lengths I wish there were a greater choice in insane length. Getting slacks shorted is a nuisance. September 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My husband's summer uniform I bought my husband a pair of these this spring, and he quickly asked for another. These two pants, with their shorts option, have gotten him through the entire summer! He's already asking for more colors for next summer. Now I'm searching for their colder weather equivalent! August 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfort and Stretch I wore these convertible pants hiking John Muir Trail for five days. They are light and comfortable. The difference between other shorts I've worn of this style is the slight stretch in the waste. With the included belt, I've not worn other shorts that can compare in comfort. The legs easily zip on and off and stowed away compact when temps warmed up. Also moved well when climbing over obstacles on the trail. August 23, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Skinny Pants, no mobility The pants' fitting is so snug it affects mobility. August 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wore these every day during Boy Scout Summer Camp I ordered a bunch of these to wear each day during Boy Scout Summer Camp in Northwood, NH in August 2015. The idea was to convert the pants to shorts during the day and then zip them back up at night. Temps were low 90s to low 80s during the day and mid 60s to mid 50s during the night; mostly sunny with some t-storms during the week. The pants worked out great: very light to wear, never felt hot. I used a Boy Scout web belt (and not the belt included with the pants) and had a Leatherman Surge attached to my belt the entire time. I also had a CRKT knife clipped to a pocket; both held up well on the pants. When not in use during the day I stored the zipped-off pant legs in the side pockets so I always had them with me to re-zip when needed (I didn't store much other stuff in these pockets so there was plenty of space to store the pant legs). Still trying to find a pair in color black though... August 13, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Too many " improvements" It seems that whenever I buy the same pants you have changed some of the features I really like. For example the older pair had a zippered rear pocket which is now Velcro and the colors now offered are a lot darker than previous orders. I keep rebuying them because I do like them. Silver Ridge August 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great comfortable pant I wore these for a full week on a 70 mile canoe trip. They dried quickly and protected my legs. I did several day hikes and they were very comfortable. August 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for travel We love these pants, they are great for travel, easy to pack and good for pants and shorts. Rain or shine. Lightweight, easy care. A must have August 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for the BWCA Pants performed as described. They were a great addition to my gear for my recent trip in the Boundary Waters. Dried quickly and stood up to the rugged environment of the BWCA. July 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good fit Love these pants! I hike, bird and garden in them. July 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pants I am 6'2 and 200 pounds. I ordered 36x34 and they fit great. I like everything about these pants- the fabric is great, they seem well made, the pockets are functional and the zip off pant feature works well. I don't know why I wore hot, bulky jeans for so long because these are far superior. These are the hiking pants you want. July 8, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by true to description I purchased these pants for an upcoming European trip so I haven't used them as planned as yet. Will say they are as advertised, nicely made, lightweight and the color is good. I suspect they will perform as desired and having not put them through their paces is the only reason I am giving them good ratings. July 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for field work Working from a kayak, I get sun protection, brush protection while out of the water, and dry pants soon after getting out. Love these pants. June 10, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Gets the job done The pants are very comfortable (without items in pockets) and durable. My favorite feature being that they dry very quickly and are very lightweight. Being convertible they are great for hot days that may include bushwhacking. Also compared to other brands the price is not bad. There downfall comes to the pockets, granted I carry lots in my pockets, but when full, the pants become really tight, due to lack of stretch, around the crotch and upper leg making movement less comfortable and more constricted. Also the tiny little belt it comes with does not do much for me and it extremely difficult to remove. May 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Look no further These are the pants you want. VERY lightweight and comfortable. I spend a lot of time out on the water during the hot summer months and these are my preferred pants. May 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great looking pant and very comfortable I purchased these for my brother who has health issues and he loves them! Very nice fabric and quality workmanship. April 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by outdoorsman These pants fit really well. I am 6'2" 195lb. and the 34" inseam fits great. The pants are a little slim fitting and snug in the rear-end. I wore them in the rain yesterday, they got soaked, but I was dry and they dried inside in about two hours. I recommend these pants for everyday use and outdoors/hiking. April 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fits my life style!!! I love these pants. I live in sothern California with cool mornings and warm days. I play golf and these fit the bill perfectly. Easy to use and great quelity, so it last a long time. I wish they made a model that was a little heaver material for the cold mornings. March 29, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Convertible Classics Good product, great for travel, fast drying and fairly priced.The fifth pair of convertible pants I have had from several companies and is the best all around. March 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I needed for travel We are going on a cruise in October, 2015 and I wanted something light for packing. These serve two purposes. If it's cool, I have pants to wear. If it gets warm, I have shorts. These fit well and look good. I have two pair ready for traveling. March 9, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good summer hiking pants They fit slightly small... other than that, great pants. February 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Silver Ridge Convertible Lightweight, SPF built in, convertible from pants to shorts, lots of pockets, and comfy! I got both the shirt and pants. Velcro pockets scare me over long term use, but I'll see how it holds up. February 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Silver Ridge Convertible Pants I got my first pairs for a trip to Africa and learned how fabulous, comfortable and versatile they are! I spent most of my life coaching and only wish I had these pants then. I went to a football game with my wife and got caught in a fall shower. By halftime, my pants were completely dry and comfortable, while my wife's jeans were wet and miserable. I ordered my latest pair, because I just had shoulder surgery. I can wear these to work and easily get them on with my non-dominant hand. They are fabulous! January 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these convertible pants! I purchased my first pair of Columbia convertible pants, and LOVE them. I just spent 10 days in Costa Rica, bought these pants for that adventure, and loved them. They quickly became my pants and shorts of choice for the whole trip! January 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Quality; tight fit for those with athletic build Adventure racers and orienteers love this pant because the ripstop sheds all the thorns, thistles and all those plants that stick to most pants. I love them for this, and they dry quickly too. However they ride a little low on the hip, the crotch is short and the thighs are a bit small. I can feel them pulling my legs when running through the woods or semi-rough open areas. I can feel them restricting my range of motion when hurdling fallen branches or tree trunks. These actions also pull the pants down, so I have to pull them up. The belt is a little thin and cuts into the skin when tightened. Overall, a nice pant for crossing through rough terrain, but they are made for the thinner crowd; not for athletic bodies (try the relaxed fit). September 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Functional & Comfortable Just bought my second pair and will probably add more colors. I love these pants. Bought them for sun protection when spending hours in an open kayak fishing. They are incredibly comfortable, even on hot days. I usually get the bottoms wet while launching, and they dry within a couple minutes. Another big plus is that it is very easy to reattach the legs, even while wearing the shorts. I've never had to struggle with the zippers. July 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these pants I wore these pants to Disney during July and was very pleased with the fit and comfort. I did not get hot at all. The pockets are perfect for carrying several things. The best part was how quickly they dried after getting wet in the rain. I highly recommend these for any outdoor occasion. July 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent for the weekend. Great for cool mornings that turn warm.Fast drying and great color that can be dressed up for dinner out. Great for vacation & utilized in most activities. they're super light for warm days yet still functional for cool days. June 30, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great...if you want to look like you're wearing Peter Pan tights. The product construction and material is very good quality. But, the designer of these pants must be uber-skinny with pencil-thin legs. I'm an average sized guy, with what I would classify as an athletic build at 6'0' 185 lbs and the legs are way to small for me to comfortably squeeze into. I bought a 34" waist, which was actually slightly large for me, but the legs are still too small for me to squeeze into. My hips and thighs look like I am wearing spandex. Restricts movement a ton. I'm going to return them and try the Blood and Guts pants, as I have heard they run bigger in the leg area. May 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by G8rgirls purchased this pant for a coworker. He works outdoors nearly everyday and loves the functionality of the pant - can be worn to indoor meetings or out in the field. Loves the convertible pant and secure pockets. (I own the women's version and feel the same!) May 2, 2014
